It's possible, but it's much more unlikely.

I dont know if they will be for Denver but I think its almost a 100% gaurantee both end up being NFL starters for a long time.

They both look great, but it's important to temper what we've seen with some reality. We've only got a couple games of seeing Harris play on the outside and a couple games of Carter's entire career. Couple that with not knowing how they'd react without over-the-top coverage rolled toward them (and away from Bailey).

All that being said, they look great and if they can sustain this level of play (let alone continue to improve) they do have bright futures.

Carter and Harris remind me a lot of the Seattle starting CBs, very physical guys who jam at the line and like to make and sustain contact.

Right now we match up well against teams relying on the field position battle since our offense has shown consistent ability to move the ball 80 yards for a TD when required, with AJ Green as the prime target we will be able to match up Champ Bailey with safety help most of the day and allow our physical CBs to deal with the Bengals number 2 and 3 WRs. Gresham is a challenge at TE, but he lacks the athleticism of Gronkowski which should help and I think if we can be physical at the line we have hopes of covering him with a 2 deep look.

The bengals weakness on defense is definitely the safety position, which should help us go deep with Thomas and Decker but we may also be looking to get Green into the secondary to cause some damage, he is a big guy with a lot of speed.
one can only hope it is this easy..

I fear a letdown from the past two games being emotional highs.. that is something we have been plagued with since mikey took the helm a long time ago.. .

Also read a stats somewhere that DEN is 2-18 in early games on eastcoast time..


Lets hope those issues can be disposed of starting with this game..

while not consecutive certainly not in different decades..

the limited intelligence on this forum from some folks is astounding..

He also had like 7 coordinators in 7 years not to mention playing every linebacker position and playing them differently with the different DC's not to mention 3 different HC's. For a guy like DJ who is not the brightest bulb in the chandelier the is no easy task. Had he played with the same Dc at the same position in the same style he would have had a much better career

When you reinvent the wheel every season guys like DJ do not do well.

Its unbelievable to think that WW who has one career sack prior to this season is playing his best football under a former LB himself and yet people seem to think JDR can't get DJ to play to his strengths.

Yeah the coaching staff isn't going to suddenly make DJ a playmaker. He isn't a playmaker. He wasn't in college and he hasn't been in the pros.

Shhhh... didn't you hear "he's a better pass rusher"?

Also the justification is that Woodyard has a lot of half sacks.

Never mind that means he's getting to the QB nearly 3x as often...

he was over shadowed at MIA by Vilma and has been since.. a great athlete no doubt but I suspect not much between the ears where great players come from..

I'd like to think JDR can turn the light for DJ but I see he couldn't do the same for Mays, another dummy.

SoCal and I love each other way too much (grow up, I mean in a completely flamboyantly gay way) to hurt each other's feelings.

so how was the wheel reinvented every year? a different DC?

He mentioned in his interview the other day said he had the same LB coach since IIRC 07.

Not sure how much change that really is..

if he is to stupid to absorb changes in the playbook then why is he making 6 mill a year?

You'll have to ask the GM that gave him the deal

No dummy face, poopoo head, stop being redicules. Not one of the seven were able to identify his talent on the field and enable him to be the beast that he is. Stupid face.

Mays sucked though. He turned WW into this beast of a pass rusher who misses sacks or requires someone else to help bring the QB down with him. Imagine what he can do with DJ or you could be ridiculous and think WW is the only LB that JDR can scheme for.
