Denver should have done a better job filling that position in the offseason. It's going to kill us all year.
Like I have always said Fox knows defense and JDR being an ex pro bowl LB knows LBs' .
Now I'm not saying that Mays will ever make it but IIRC Mays came from the eagles and they had one hell of a defensive team.. a lot of talent could not crack that line up..
Sometime you roll the dice when a coach says he can make an outstanding MLB out of an inexperienced guy..
Knowing that LB are one of the easiest spots to fill in the off season..
It is not like John did not spend a hell of a lot of money bringing in lots talent the past two years..
money may have been a consideration also..
