A week ago most everyone here would have agreed that the LB corps isn't up to snuff.

There is always room for improvement, and improving matters more to good teams, not less. After TDs Peyton brings the offense together to review the drive and go over mistakes. According to you guys that would make him a terrible person, he should probably just sit down and work off the wood.
Timing is everything. And bad timing is made worse when it follows a game that was full of domination.

Woodyard has more career INT as DJ. He also has one more career INT than DJ has DUI's.

225 total rushing yards makes you look like a fool. btw, Hillman had 86 rushing yards.

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.

I love how we lead the division with what will likely be one of the easier, if not easiest schedules in the NFL the rest of the way, and yet somehow we're not contenders, apparently.

Its only a matter of time till we run into a good O and they expose the LBs from Kentucky.

When we can beat NE we are true contenders in AFC. Yes we can give teams problems but, not enough on D to beat NE or Houston on the road YET.

You know what they say, If you have LBs from Kentucky you really need another RB to be a contender.

If only we had a back who had the power of Jim Brown, speed of Gale Sayers, elusiveness of Barry Sanders, vision of TD and the durability of Walter Payton...

How will we ever win without this key component?

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.
You're 1/2 a brain away from having one.

Contender doesnt necessarily equal BY FAR BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE ZOMG. I don't know how you can look at our team right now and think we're not one of the AFC contenders.

WTF is the poster talking about? Nobody said Hillman is the feature back. Yes, he's too small to be a feature back. He's a change of pace guy and he's really starting to take strides and I love what he did tonight, expect for the fumble. And maybe you didn't notice but McGahee once again piled up tough yards. I hate that he continues to drop the rock as much as the next guy but he's running hard and he's running smart. Alot of times he gets yards when I thought he would be stopped for 1 or 2 and he churns and pushes and next thing you know he's got 4 or 5.

Way too early to be talking contenders, for any team. Injuries can always happen, funny bounces not going your way, all sorts of things. For this team to be 4-3 having played the toughest schedule in the league thus far (and yes, that's a fact), I'll take it. One of the biggest things's I've noticed is that we are definitely cutting back on mental mistakes. Honestly, IMO, those are the reasons we lost at least 2 of the games we did. If we played Atlanta again right now, I like our chances. If we played the Pats in Denver, uh toss up. Same with Houston.

And if you go by ESPN QBR rankings (way more accurate than passer rating if you ask me) the number 1 QB

DVOA says we have the 4th best offense and 6th best defense and that was before tonight's game.

Offensive numbers wont climb as they are opponent adjusted and NO's defense is miserable, but our defensive DVOA should go up.

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.
