The 2 recent fumbles hurt, although the one against raiders didn't affect outcome. He was doing the right thing on that play getting the ball to the outside hand, just had a brain lapse at the critical moment. Yesterday's was a good poke by the defender; coulda happened to many WR. He's a beast.

Those that only see the (easily correctable) fumbles are not enjoying the experience.

Which one are you?
Talent all the way. I find it fascinating that a WR who lacks basic fundamentals is at the top of the league in his position right now. Well, 2nd.

not hardly what you said..
it feels like DT fumbles the ball every game and Decker drops at least couple passes.

I just hope he learns to secure the ball.

He's a stud in the making and I really enjoy watching him week to week, fumbles aside. Just going thru a rough spot right now. Dude snatches the ball out of the air like it's nothing.

How is he on pace for 10? We are almost 1/3 of the way through the season.

Ask Bronco Boy, I was wondering about that math too. I would say 6.5 for the season.

People keep saying his route running is terrible yet the commentators keep complimenting his route runnimg during these games. If he wasnt running routes like he is supposed to, how the hell does Peyton keep finding him? Isnt Peyton all about timing? Thats what we heard all offseason. Run the correct and precise route and Manning will get you the ball.

Besides the regularly clearheaded people, this forum has seen a mass influx of trolls. I would say mentally retarded trolls but that would be an insult to those with mental disabilities comparing them to the dummies on thos board.

DT technically has three fumbles. He was credited with the fumble at the end of the Houston game when they kept pitching the ball in desperation. Not that that should count, but you can argue with BB on that point.

Also, after 3 years in the league, Brandon Marshall had 8 fumbles. Im not saying DT will be the same player but he has the talent.

Jerry Rice had one of those Raiders game open field fumbles in a playoff game in the 80's, and he turned out okay.

I disagreed with the Thomas pick, but man, if he keeps progressing and fine tuning his game, he will be a top receiver in the league.

Demaryius and Eric are the least of my worries. This is the year they should progress the most, and despite a few issues, they seemingly have. What would be great is if the Broncos could get another receiver into the mix this off-season (FA or draft) that can make us even more of a threat. A Brandon Stokely, but 15 years younger and much more polished. Doesn't look like Caldwell panned out and Willis is emergency depth at best. One more dynamic receiver to this corps and we would be great. Just look at what Green Bay has done.

Green Bay drafted several high talent WRs in the first 4 rounds... This board would burn itself to the ground if Denver drafts a WR in the first 4 rounds next year. They want the Broncos to be the Chefs and reach for a defensive player every year...

Yes, they certainly did. Denver has nobody worth a **** as a returner, so they might as well pony up the dough and go for a guy in the third or fourth round whose value is a third or fourth receiver, but who can get us some good field position. It sucks seeing Omar Bolden waddle his penguin feet to the 15 yard line every time he brings it out.

Jerry Rice had a few fumbles as he was running in for TD's too. As I watched DT yesterday throughout the game I told my son that if this kid WANTS to be, he could be the BEST in the NFL. He's got the talent!!!

What fundamentals? He needs to stop fumbling, andthere's no reason to think he won't. Otherwise his "fundamentals" are good enough to basically be the most productive receiver in the league.

All I know is he is making some amazing catches and some big long plays, it's just too bad on several of them he just couldn't find a way to secure the ball and the offense didn't get any benefit from those plays.

Coaches need to have him and McGahee holding footballs during meetings.

DT is a STUD! He's young and putting a lot of pressure on himself. He looks up to megatron and trains with him in the offseason.

We are very fortunate to have him.
