The Broncos look to be in good shape on the edge imo.
Well Phillips had what, like 2 sacks less then Doom last year? So it's not like it's going from best in the NFL to a lost cause at RDE. I also agree that, it could be all a mute point anyway, in terns of Phillips and Smith. I just don't think you can overlook Ayers right now. He is a better pass rusher then most give him credit for. I don't see him get the sacks but whenever I watch the games and he's been in, he's just oh so close to sacks, he's getting pressure. I think the upgrade to the interior of our DL will really help things out. There will be a bigger push up the middle this year and QB's can't simply just step up inside the pocket to avoid Miller and who ever else. I also think we've upgraded our secondary with Rogers so I see the defense as a whole, improved. We might take a dip in sacks but we'll still be near the top.
