DJ can not bring intelligence to the able as a MLB being able to make the calls for the front seven.. he failed at it when he did play it for a time frame after he was SAM, and not only was he unable to relay the calls in from the DC correctly he did not have a clue on changing it if the QB changed the play..

After this year, Denver might want to look towards free agency and to see if they can’t bring in someone who does have MLB experience, because the improvement in the play adjustments was so noticeable, with Brooking getting people into the right spot on multiple plays. Del Rio also called one heck of a game. But as far as next year - draft for the future, certainly, but it seems that the present benefits from an experienced eye at MLB. Brooking also put up five tackles, three of them solo. There was also no drop off in Denver’s overall hitting, a selling point of Mays in the past

DJ is a dummy he can not do those things.. plus he is a drag down tackler not something you want from a MLB it is the spot where you want to meet the ball carrier in the hole or behind the LOS.. Not DJ's forte..

Obviously, he needs to improve.

Now this is a good and understandable bump!

Woodyard looked really good tonight, and no way he comes off the field when dj returns.
Maybe dj back at middle

Either way cheers to woodyard

if he does it is a slap in the face to the rest of the defense..

JDR does not seem like the guy that would do that..

Like vilma tonight playing WIL because the guy they brought in to do it is playing the best on the D..
If he wants to play it was at WIL he has to earn his playing time..

I would hope that JDR does the same thing. for that matter unless there is an injury cut his dumb ass.. Save the money..

Woodyard, Trevarthan and Brooking all played very well tonight - albeit against the by far worst rushing offense in the league and a gimpy Jimmy Graham.

The only spot DJ could start at is MLB IMO.

once again I will say it..

DJ has had his chance at MIKE he palyed there one year and mid way through he year had to take the play calling of the front 7 away from him because he was to dumb to make the adjustments..

Brooking as far as I have seen is playing great making the right calls.. why would anyone want to pull an old pro that is doing a great job out for a dumb ass..

Woodyard has really stepped up over the last few games, great to see and much needed.

Now hopefully they drop DJ's ass to the curb like they should have during the off-season.

Actually if you look at last years numbers WW out played dj with six less games except on sacks. I suspect that was because he was not asked to blitz when he was in. Because this year he has 3 in seven games.
Last year he was asked to play more ST than he is this year.

Woodyard has been a candidate for the Pro Bowl as a special-teams player. This year, the voters will have to consider him as a starting outside linebacker. What he did was make 13 tackles, sack Brees once and intercept a pass when the Saints tried on fourth down.

well the interception is a good stats but it was dumb to make because it lost yardage for us..

Had he dropped it on the ground he would have still got the pass defensed and we would have gained yardage..

but what the hell he played a great game.. like he has all year..

I wouldn't say he's overrated here, except for maybe SoCal. I think most of us recognize that he's an underachiever, but he's still been a better LB than most of our other options.

My point with DJ has long been that he was the only LB we had who could cover at all, not that he was anything special. As long as that was the case we were handcuffed to having him around. This is why I was such an advocate for drafting Lavonte David instead of Brock Osweiler.

Woodyard's growth has removed that handcuff, making DJ expendable, now the FO just needs to make it happen. I don't think it will until after the season though, because there isn't a better way to spend the money or the roster spot dropping DJ will free up. But if Woodyard keeps it up it NEEDS to happen this off-season.

I still think we would have been better off cutting DJ and giving his money to Jameel McClain. Better yet, giving Mays' money to McClain instead, and spending DJ's elsewhere. But that's the past.

Wesley Woodyard, linebacker, Denver: Woodyard had a tremendous game as the Broncos’ defense stymied Drew Brees and New Orleans. Woodyard was all over the field as he had 13 sacks, an interception and a forced fumble in the game. It was a message to D.J. Williams that he may have a hard time finding playing time when his NFL suspension is over after two more games.
