Again, your opinion and not fact. Brooking isn't making tackles near the line of scrimmage, he barely makes tackles at all, so I'm not sure what specifically he's doing to help here apart from helping line up the defense but DJ can do that.
That's cute. Brooking has been a starter all of two games, and you're talking about him being here shedding blood and sweat?
I guess we must have had an impersonator at MLB/WLB with DJ all these years and over a 100 games where he played mostly behind a bunch of castoff DTs.
Your opinions don't really matter on this anyway. The Broncos brought in Brooking not to replace DJ but to be an option to fill in while he served his suspension.
I like Brooking, he's a leader on the field and has a ton of experience and is a good backup policy. But that's about it.
one again DJ lovers talking out of their ass..
according to Broncos.com he has indeed started 5 games and played in all seven..

IIRC brookings was brought in to be a spare part not as DJs replacement.. John knows you can not have to many DB's. LB's or RB's on the roster..
Once again DJ is not a MLB he has played 16 games at it and frankly was not a stuff them at the LOS , TFL or big sackmeister that year..
his expertise has always been WLB and that right now is being manned very well by WW..
