Brooking was brought in for leadership and on field help. And because Mays wasn't cutting it he took over. Say what you want about him but Brooking is helping the D. Top 10 ranking in numerous stats. DUI has not been missed.
How many plays has Brooking made? Here's your answer, MORE THAN DUI HAS THIS YEAR!
Brooking may be inferior, but he has been here. He has played and shed sweat and blood on the field with his teammates. What has DUI done?
Its about putting the best linebackers out there.
Brookings is not a good linebacker, way past his prime. He was brought in for depth when nobody else in the league wanted him, in fact there was talk he would be cut from the Broncos in camp.
