Default We're a RB and LB away from being contenders

Hillman is not the answer. At least not this year. Hes too small and fragile at this point. He reminds me a lot of Tatum Bell in the fact that hes quick and elusive but not a tackle breaker. Steven Jackson anyone?

The Kentucky lb's are going to eventually get exposed. We need dj or elway needs to bring someone in.

I'm ready to roll at this point with the rest of our guys but those two positions need to be assessed.

Huh? Willis was a beast outside of the fumble. Did you not see him dragging guys ten yards?

And Hillman is quick/fast and seems to have pretty good vision, once he learns to take what he can get they will be a pretty damn good 1-2 combo.

Nah Willis had WIDE open spaces all night and He still didn't show the burst we saw last season. And you can't ignore the fact he's always subbing himself out. Dude runs hard no doubt. I'm a big Willis fan but he's not a 20 touches guy anymore.

Big ****in win fellas. Not trying to be negative nancy just trying to see if u guys saw what I saw.

You must not watch any other football other than the Broncos.

RB's sub themselves out all the time. Even Adrian Peterson.

We don't need a 20 touches guy, but Willis CAN give us 20+ touches if we need it (as he showed tonight). TBH you don't want to give your RB 20+ carries EVERY single game, and we're not even set up to do so.

Willis rushed 23 times for 122 yards and 5.3 ypc... I'm sure any human would have to be subbed out through out the game...oh and 2 receptions.

Broncos ran the ball 41 times for 225 yards 5.5 ypc today...

I'm not sure where you people are bred from, but it's definitely somewhere between mentally retarded to idiotic.

Koppen and the boys embarrassed the saints defense tonight. A complete beat down was what took place out there. Go back and look how big the gaps were. Your fat sister could have rushed for 75 and a score. What we need is a hybrid of Willis and Hillman. Hillmans speed with mcgahees toughness

You do realize anytime a running game is working, there will always be big holes?

Do you watch the Redskins? Probably not.

But if you did you would know what big holes really look like.

Oh we need a super physical back that has super speed?

So what you're saying is, we need Adrian Peterson?

Oh, that's completely realistic.

You need to quit.

The last sentence is perhaps the dumbest, and that's saying something. All we need is the fastest running back in the league who also goes about 230.

What you're describing would easily be the best running back in the league. That would be nice to have, but until we get the next Adrian Peterson, I'm pretty much ok with what we have.

Willis showed patience as he always does, the holes where bigger than previously but tonight's run blocking is how ANY team needs to block to have a successful running game, no matter WHO you have back there. But the holes weren't big all night... a lot of his running was physical and McGahee carrying defenders.

Again, you must not watch any team but the Broncos and Sportcenter highlight reels.

If it is to be a Super Bowl contender or not, I don't think the problem lies at RB. Defense will be the problem to get passed those tough teams we lost to earlier this year. I would love a rematch with Atlanta for sure. Good thing is we have 9 weeks to get better on both sides. We are upticking like no other team besides Atlanta. We are in a great position. Let us get some room away from the sloths of the other AFC West teams and we can keep injuries hopefully to a minimal.

YOu can't enjoy this until tomorrow afternoon?

I'm ready to roll at this point with the rest of our guys but those two positions need to be assessed.

Hillman is definitely a good change of pace. Our LBs are fine especially when DJ gets back.

Woodyard is having a hell of a year, Danny showed up big in coverage today.

this thread is crazy talk.

What is dj gonna do to improve what we have? Other than backup, if they even keep his dumb ass..

He is not going beat out WW or Von.
He is not smart enough to play Mike. beside Brookings is playing well and called a damned fine game the past few games he has been in.

Danny T looks like a keeper.

So what can he do to improve this team, other than perhaps bring the real LBs water when they come to the sideline.

For the five mil he was suppose to make this year we have Brookings, WW, and DT with change to spare.

Now at the end of the year we will have to find a MIKE for the future but that is not DJ.

Our D and those Kentucky LB just shut down the Saints; one of the most prolific offenses of the last 5 years.
Our running game was in beast mode tonight. Is Hillman ready to be a feature back...no, but he is a good compliment and is getting better with his vision.

Enjoy the win and quit trolling.

One really intriguing thing over the last two games:

Nate Irving is finding the field on a more consistent basis. His issue isn't size or speed, it's getting his head around the speed of the game. He's a project, but he is starting to make plays and is being rewarded for it.

I'm not ready to give up on him by any stretch. He might be exactly the player in the middle that they hoped he'd become. Remember, he missed really significant time in college and was likely not even 100% coming into his rookie season.
