Default Elway starting to get Criticized

NFL circles are now starting to talk about John Elway and his ability to not assemble a quality defense.

I'm told it is similar to the knock on Mike Shannahan

It looks like the Del Rio hire may have been a bad one, and the lack of depth on the defense is quite literally going to cost the broncos any shot at a superbowl

He is being roundly questioned on Paris Lenon, Omar Bolden, Sylvester Williams.

Rodgers Cromartie is a still a plus, but there is lots of skepticism about his ability to build a balanced roster.

… and it's bull****. Trevathan has had a great year. Knighton, great year. Wolfe has been a great run defender. Von Miller has been great thus far in his career, outside of stupid off the field incidents. Shaun Phillips has been a great pickup. DRC, great pickup. Elway has done a good enough job, but nothing could have prepared this team for the injuries they've had. Been sorta unbelievable.

11-3 Elway should just say scoreboard b****es. Sure we lost this game and that sucks but it is what it is. We're still 11-3 and all the critics can suck Elway's dick right now.

Clady, Wolfe and Champ going lame in the preseason. Our best fatboy run defender. Our best safety. Wolfe nearly dying on a bus.

Not to mention the disruption of Fox's medical leave. Del Rio maybe lost a little focus on his real job?

i think he is also being penalized for the mile high expectations manning has brought, he knew this was part of the deal

he won't flinch, he is really on the clock next offseason

Many of us here certainly are. I liked the DRC, Pot Roast and Philips pickups but Stewart Bradley, Quentin Jammer and Paris Lenon sucked. He saw how bad our Db's were and didn't account for the decline of Champ to get more help at CB and just stood pat with Rahim "The Nightmare" and Mike Adams (fail). I know he pursued Woodson and was rebuffed but we needed more attention here.

If we go one and out again he deserves some blame after even allowing the Dumervil fiasco to go down to the wire like it did and having a team this far out of balance.

Why don't you answer the question about the "nfl circle" you're referring to? Because I'm pretty sure the only circle you're privy to is of the jerk variety.

Freedom goes both ways Wolf and its a fair question, you started this tread with a comment as if you had a number of 'NFL circles' making these complaints .. Okay, fair enough, let's see them!! Unless those 'NFL Circles' are just a couple of neurons rolling around inside your noggin!? :-)

I can't believe I am dignifying this thread. But screw it, it will allow me to waste valuable company time on a Friday.

We get a couple of days to heal up. Get our boo-boo's some treatment, etc., the guys get to hang with their families a bit.

We have two extremely winnable games to get back on track, and I would be hard pressed to think the 'Pats are gonna run the table. Matter of fact, I could see them not only losing to the 'Phins but to the Ravens as well. I know, we can't rely on other teams to take care of our sh-t, but this is a very plausible scenario. Just breathe my bruthas and sistas...

In his head. If anyone is a fraud (another thread ref.), it is wolf and his supposed inside information. He's got voices in his head and trots it out as info.

If you think this defense is bad remember what we had under McD.

It is fair to say that most of Elways bad picks have been defensive ones. Boldin, Irving, possibly Sly(although I think he is actually progressing well the last 3 weeks and outside of the top 10 you rarely see DT's make an immediate impact). Nobody bat 100 in the draft and we have been quite unlucky with injuries. What would the defense have looked like if Quentin Carter and Rahim Moore were playing at 100%?

This defense is every bit as bad, and probably much worse. I really don't think people are understanding exactly how bad our defensive problems are.

wow, you lose one game to a team like the Chargers and some of you are ready to jump off of a cliff.

That's crazy. Your team deserves better fans. The team has had a pretty good year and is play off bound.

whiners.

My biggest criticism of Elway is that he hired John Fox. That's when our ceiling was permanently lowered just below greatness (read titles). Everything else is simply the natural result of that.

We should have nabbed Kerry Rhodes and Karlos Dansby. Could have had both cheap. One is still out there too.

Dansby was a no brainer--I made a thread here a few yrs ago saying we should trade for him from Miami who was horrible and may have wanted draft picks.

I also thought Lavonte David would be superior at a need position for a team making a run than Osweiler to sit the bench or even Wolfe. He is a top flight LB right now.

Sigh.
