Those are the only 6 weaknesses that could be upgraded in the offseason, that I see on this team right now. We need to resign our own Free Agents too.

Other than that, the Denver Broncos are loaded for bear. 2012 and possibly 2013 could be the closest that Denver comes to the Superbowl in the next decade or more. It's GO TIME fellers.

I really have not not follow college ball since my daughter played VB in HS and in college. Just no time for it.

Now that I'm retired I really thought I could find the time. Ahahahahahahaha.

Busier now than ever.

So as to who the players are I just do not know.

The depth and starter areas we need help at. ( subject to existing players stepping up yet this year ).

MLB of course I said that last year also. Need a semi stud here.. A Smart one.

FS. Although carter might be that guy. But bringing on another for depth would be good.

OT maybe the top pick because I do not think Clady will get resigned as he will want to much for a position that has relevance than it did ten years ago. Clady will be tagged. Until rookie can step in.

OG backup as well as OC combo guy would be great. Our this years staters are only going to get better with the offseason workouts and conditioning.

RB as a backup up to Mc Gahee as he has a few years left.

CB as backups.

Maybe a decent WR but not as a rookie. Got to find one that has been a player for a couple of years. That way you weed out the morons like Marshall, the kid from Dallas that beat his grandmother. You see that they can play in the BIGs and if they are the typical head case that WRs normally are.

I'll take any decent WR that can make the catch consistently. Rod and Eddie come to mind. I do not care if they are super fast because the "take it to the house" happens so rarely it is irrelevant. Decker and DT speed is good enough for me.

Depending on Juilius at TE how much he grows into the spot maybe another TE.

I think we have all the LB talent we need as backups and WW, VM are not going anywhere.

I'll let the gurus like Kaylore filter out the college studs.

On DJ I say don't let him play until someone gets dinged. If Woodyard gets hurt then let him play etc etc. Otherwise he should ride the pine.

He's not exactly a rookie who doesn't know the NFL speed. I'm fine if you don't want him or don't like him but don't be throwing straight up lies that he doesn't know the playbook.
No lies. Unless your playing your not learning. Trying to learn the play book without being on the field is not impossible but very unlikely for DJ who is not close to being Mensa material.

It is also KNOWING what the guys can do, in front of you and on either side. He flat does not have the experience in that area.

He has not been remotely close enough to have a feel for what has happened on the field.

Look I realize you believe that he is a stud because he led the team several years in tackles. But that means squat now in yet another scheme.

And he led them as a WLB there is no way that he is going get that spot. Not the way WW is playing. He is not going take Millers spot either so that means he has to be smart enough to beat out Brookings.

That is not going to happen either he is to dumb to make the calls on Defense for the front seven. For that matter have a clue on how to beat out Brookings.

Sorry your woody is showing again.

Do you really think the team would have told him to come back he would have to take a reduction in the remainder of his contract if they thought he was the MAN?

They plan on him as a backup, a spare part on the shelf. Get used to it.

Has it ever crossed anyone's mind that JDR was just a hc for the last 8 season. Maybe he doesnt have to go back. If you talk to jaguar fans it doesn't seem that he really wanted to be a HC, especially at the end. All he has to do is worry about one side of the ball and it is well known he loves him some defense. I think we get him through next year. I also agree with the comments of throw more money at him he deserves it. There are people that where head coaches that never do it again. Wade Phillips and Dick Lebeau anyone?

I know right? Like it matters which Broncos score the TD's?

20% of the TD's scored by the Bears during Lovie's tenure have been by special teams and defense......

Wade Phillips was a head coach at least 3 different times.

I do think some team may approach McCoy about a gig.

Although, there may be a ton of opening positions this offseason.
Kansas City
San Diego
Cleveland
Philadelphia
Dallas
Jets
Yay! I hope he takes the first team out of town! (McClown that is...)

Just speculation on my part....you know, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

I think what with our D playing very well + his alienating the team, coaching staff and FO with his off field bull**** = sitting on inactive while he gets back into "playing shape" (wink, wink)

He is liked in the locker room at least by a few old team mates. But how can you say that doing dumb thing time after time is not in best interest of the team.

Double DUIs then getting caught with dog piss during a drug test, suing the league and topping it off with the tweeting of the play book.

Those were all preventable actions pulled by a total dumb ass.. How else do you spell cancer.

Not John Ewlays kind of player.

There are a lot of guys who give up on being head coaches. Guys like Dom Capers, Mike Nolan, Mike Tice, Mike Sherman, Wade Phillips, and Jim Hasslet. Some of these guys were tenured head coaches who either couldn't get another HC gig, and others just wanted to take a step back. I imagine Rex Ryan will be added to this list pretty soon.

I think DJ has a place in our nickel packages. He can cover better than Brooking, though Trevathan has been pretty decent there.

He will not take WW's place though as he has been balling all season.

I agree. I think I've heard him saying he and his woife like it here, so we'll see.
As far a getting another HC gig, I doubt it. I think he'll be our DC for at least a couple more years...

Add Dick Lebua from PIT to that list James Jones from Philly was one of the best also..

After this season Mikey Tanahan might be on that list also..

Really, when has Wade or any of these guys given up on being head coiaches? I bet everyone of them would be interested in any openings that came up. Wade has coached THREE different teams. When did he give up? After the last time he was fired!!

Didn't see this made into a gif anywhere so I made it myself.

First the hit:


Afterwards Von maybe feels a little bad for the utter decimation that is being laid upon Cam so no dance, just this:

See the problem is it is broke. We have given up 47 catches 596 yards and 8 TDs to the other teams TE's. That is 12.6 yards per catch and damn near a TD per game. Before you start saying well Mays was the problem, over the last 4 games it's getting worse. 26 catches, 354 yards, and 5 TDs from TE's.

So yeah while our team is doing great, lets not count out DJ from helping improve the team.
