7 games in, Denver's D ranks in the top 10 in both fewest points and yards allowed.

Despite the schedule that had them facing offenses ranked 1, 3, 7, 8, 15, 20 & 24 in scoring.

Defense played a hell of a game. They got some push up front and weren't playing on their heels all night. Really that simple.

DJ should play special teams with Mays.

Sproles had his way with Woodyard on the 1st TD. Woodyard was responsible for that under zone and was late to see Sproles then let him run right by.

I would still take DJ until we can draft or sign someone better.

I'm quite honestly not certain DJ deserves to beat out Trevathan after his performance in passing downs last night.

Trevathan was very impressive in coverage. I wonder how many passes he defended?

Ditto.
These young kids are just freakin in the zone, and playing focused and with aggression.
I say keep DJ for depth, and ST's, then trade him in the offseason.
Then move up in the draft and get Te'o to take over at MLB.
I think DJ would command a 3rd or 4th round pick.

as much as I used to like the dumb ass, I do nto see him worth even that.. he has a really bad record and everyone that has played him knows that he is a drag down tacklers usually after the first down has been made.. he is not a TFL kind of guy and up to a few years ago was not a sacker either which IMO is surprising as hell with the speed he has..

unless he comes on gang busters the rest ot the year when he finally does get back with teh club he will not be worth squat.. and teh way the youngins are playing the likeley hood of him getting on teh field is slim..

IMO they cut him instead of cutting someone else to make room for his sorry ass and they save a bunch of money in the process that is if they do not trade him by tomorrow night..

I don't get why some people are saying we would cut Dj.. when he gets back, he will probably have a significant role and likely be starting within a short time. He is better than any LB we have fielded this year with the exception of WW. Yeah, he's an idiot with his mistakes off field, but I seriously doubt he will be just spelling people come week 11 - he'll be out there and he will make our D better.

Was Woodyards green dot indicative of him receiving calls for the D or Special teams? If he's calling the plays, they could give Brooking a break and stick Wes in the middle. He's about the same size as John Beason.

No dude. WW is not a MLB. He just is not big/physical enough to make the tackles in the scrum. He would get washed out of too many plays.

People act like DJ is this awesome coverage guy. He is average at best which is more than most of the guys on our roster. I don't see him replacing WW and Danny T played great last night.

So dj is better than miller also?

Not seeing that dumb ass beat anyone out for playing time.

If you have missed it WW outplayed his expensive ass last year stat wise with starting 6 less games than dumb ass did. .

Got to let go of your bromance with him. For the money he is making he should be making TFL in each game, stopping them for no gain. But he does not he is a drag down tackler usually after a good gain if not the first down.

Not sure what his job function would be other than maybe water guy at this point.

Fox and JDR would be crazy to let him play in front of the guys that are getting the job done. That would be a huge slap in the face to the starters not even talking about the rest of the team.

The moron let them down three times we know about in the past year. DUI, piss test, and the the play book FUBAR in the spring.

The clown led the team in tackles for a few years. BFD most of which were for positive yards double BFD.

I've always been a Woodyard fan. I've thought we were as good or better than with our old WSLB out there.

I believe he's signed through next year. I wouldn't mind seeing them extend that by a year or two.

Mays and Mr. DUI can go play pick up sticks in the locker room as far as I'm concerned. The unit out there last night looked good.

The next time DJ turns his head in pass coverage will be the first time.

WW has trouble not getting washed out of running plays at WLB (see Patriots game).

Right now, I'm not sure DJ could crack the starting lineup, but his best trait has always been his versatility. With Mays going down, we need all the depth we can get at LB.
