JACK DEL RIO appreciation thread
 
Is Jack Del Rio the best defensive coordinator Denver has ever had?

There have been some good ones

Joe Collier was great with the Orange Crush

Recently Allen and Nolan were both good

Del Rio is tops IMO with what he has done with the young guys

loborugger 11-13-2012 08:07 AM

I dont think there is any way you could bless him above Collier after a half season of work.

That's one thing that always gets me. TEs have always been a thorn in the side of defences because of matchup problems and the standard of TE play has never been higher in the NFL. I'd love to be able to cover the TE but we're one of many teams that struggle in that area because of the above.

baja 11-13-2012 08:18 AM

Consider what he has gotten out of the talent he inherited. It is nothing short amazing.

Joe had several high drafts to build his defense.

Imagine JDR with a couple more drafts assuming he stays

Crushaholic 11-13-2012 08:19 AM

I wish we had Nolan, longer. I think he was heading us on the right path...

not beaing able to match up is one thing. letting the TE run free off the LOS and not ever covering him is another.

Remember all of us screaming for the FO to fix the D line and the collective disappointment when we didn't sign a high priced DT

JDR basically brought in a couple of role players and worked with underachievers we had and made the D line a strength

El Guapo 11-13-2012 08:24 AM

I'll be happy once next season starts and he's still our defensive coordinator. That'll be a new record.

What you mean?
Lack of talent is what we have from 2007 to 2010
Since last year we've been adding pretty good players. The talent level we now have is superb on just about all areas of the defensive side of the ball. Granted we may be a LB short and lacking a little bit of depth, but overall I think JDR inherited a pretty good group of guys...

baja 11-13-2012 08:27 AM

We are #10 in run defense who here would have predicted that in September?

Who exactly were that at the time of his hiring.

We had Von, Doom and Champ as clear studs

He coached the hell out of the young guys and FA roll players

NFLBRONCO 11-13-2012 08:33 AM

I just wonder who our next DC will be in 13?

Our offense is supposed to get up on people and that makes opponents one-dimensional, abandoning the run, thus giving us a deceptively high run D ranking #....

Editor's note: NFL reporter Jeff Legwold analyzes the Broncos' 36-14 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday and looks ahead.
For the Broncos, these are the hunger games.
When John Elway returned to pro football, this time to be a front-office executive, he said his first goal was to "get the locker room the way we wanted it."
He wanted to return football hunger to the equation.
Whatever happens to the current four-game winning streak moving forward, Elway, the Broncos' front-office and coaching staffs have met that goal.
While talent will always determine a team's ability to get into the postseason, it's hunger that determines what those playoff trips become.
"That's what we need," Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. "Everybody needs to remember to stay the course, don't get caught up in everything going around. Because what we're doing is nice, but it isn't where we want to go. The good teams, every week, every year, remember where they want to go.
"But we've got a lot of hungry guys in here, guys who want to do whatever it takes to get out there to play, guys giving it all to win. That's how it needs to stay."
Guys such as cornerback Chris Harris, a player the Broncos signed as an undrafted free agent after the 2011 draft. He is a Swiss Army knife, tossed in wherever the Broncos need him.
In Sunday's victory at Carolina, he lined up outside at cornerback, in the slot at cornerback and at safety.
Guys such as Tony Carter — cut over and over again, including by the Broncos — who has scored two of the Broncos' four defensive touchdowns.
Guys such as Keith Brooking, Dan Koppen and Trindon Holliday, veteran players sent along their way by their former teams, looking to contribute somewhere, for somebody, who now find themselves key pieces in a playoff race.
"You can see it," Harris said. "I want to be one of those guys that wants to play. I don't want to step back. I want to be out there, in the big situations."
It is the most difficult part of assembling teams. Young teams tend to be the hungrier ones, filled with enthusiasm and athleticism.
Older teams tend to know the way. The best mix just might be the young teams with some well-placed, much- decorated veterans to lead the way. The Broncos have the look of one of those teams.

Every single opponent tries to run on us early in the game to keep Manning on the bench, none have been able to sustain it.

baja 11-13-2012 08:44 AM

So you guys don't appreciate JDR?

baja 11-13-2012 08:46 AM

I think next to Manning JDR was the best off season move the Broncos made,

yeah...hopefully he can stick around for at least two seasons

gyldenlove 11-13-2012 08:54 AM

I just noticed we are number 1 in the league in sacks with 31, the difference between us and the 2nd best team is the same as the difference between number 2 and number 11. Pass rush is back in Denver.

Greatspirits 11-13-2012 08:54 AM

Yep, I'm already worried he'll be gone after this year. Hopefully he'll stick around to at least get a Super Bowl ring before he leaves.

makes sense. We should look at a rate stat instead - YPC should be more indicative of a good run D than pure yards, right?

we are the #2 run D in the whole league.
