Default How Bout Them Broncos?

Quote:
Now let’s contrast that to what actually happened. Antonio Gates had 5 first half catches for 68 yards and 2 scores leading the Chargers to a 24-0 lead. Then something magical happens… instead of rushing Von, he’s covering… and doing it pretty well. Gruden criticized the move, correctly pointing out that Miller’s best asset is his pass-rushing ability. What Gruden’s lack of Broncos defense focus neglected to realize, no one else was capable of covering. Joe Mays and Brooking can’t cover. Mike Adams can’t fill and take on Gates in a match-up battle. Woodyard can run with him, but can’t get his head around to make a play on the ball.

So Von it must be… situationally, at least.

When DJ Williams returns, we can cut down further on those coverage drops and get him chasing the QB more, but without telegraphing his role to opposing offensive line coaches. With our given personnel, I want 3-3 nickel looks in long passing situations with Elvis, Vickerson and Meth-Wolfe on the line with Woodyard, DJ and Von standing up. With moderate splits, our LBs should have some premium pass-rushing match-ups coming on a blitz–All three have shown an innate ability to get to the quarterback… let’s take advantage of it. Let’s dictate protection schemes as opposing OC’s have to analyze tendencies to answer questions like: Who’s coming on 3rd and long? How many are coming?

Some other things I noticed that I haven't seen talked about yet:
Bruton almost blocked another punt. #baller
Vickerson seemed to have screen responsibility during the game and did an excellent job blowing up a couple.

I have major problem with your web page. Namely, you referring to yourself "all around swell." That, good sir, is a lie. While some of your characteristics are swell, nay, even awesome, other areas you are most certainly NOT swell, nay, even sup-bar or disconcerting. So I say that I most strongly disagree on this point. Yes, most definitely.

I still have a formal request into Renee Herlocker. We'll see if she ever answers it.

Yeah, WTF!?!?!
Anyways, as much as i hate to admit it, DEN needs DJ Williams back in a BAD way. The guy is an idiot off the field, but his abilities on the field, and the clear issues at LB trump the off field stuff for now.
I would say the same thing for slowshon, but he just sucks on and off the field.
Great that Kupe is back and as Rev pointed out, he was back to his old self by the 4th quarter. I expect him to be at his usual pro-bowl level by next game with a bye to really heal up.
Also, thank Elway for bringing in Dan Koppen.

Oooh good one.

Sucks to say, but the OL has improved with the injury to Walton.

WWIII gets his head around in pass coverage much better than DJ. DJ is the worst I have ever seen at it.

Good analysis Rev...

You're right switching D.J. to MLB would make the Broncos Defense much more flexible.

Von can cover, D.J. can cover, and Wes is getting (a little) better at it...also, like you said, ALL 3 have shown the ability to rush the QB.

The D is gonna be pretty sweet when D.J. gets back.

I wasn't advocating a full time switch. Just in nickel packages where he already played MLB (at least when he played last year)

You can just ask. I absolutely aggressively wish we had him. I think we'd be better. I love what we've got though.

The announcers noticed Vickerson reading a couple screen as well. Probably the best we have played the screen in quite some time. Usually we suck at defending draws and screen in long yardage situations.

Its a good read.

But for ****'s sake, stop calling him Meth-Wolfe. First, its a stupid nickname only the idiots on the Orangemane use and second, its a stupid ****ing nickname.

Bruton has been getting great pressure on punta the last few weeks. I have to wonder though, why doesn't he get shots at playing on defense?

He has, he lacks the fluidity to cover anyone

Good at running in a straight line, not so much when having to react and change directions
