This years stats
47 catches, 596 yards, and 8 TDs

As Med already said in another thread Denver is scheming to stop the run more and the way we are doing it puts us in a disadvantage in covering TE's. Now can DJ Williams help? We will find out. Some of us think that JDR will help DJ improve like he has the other LBs so far this season.

y'all make him out to be some kind of hero.. he is what he is a cheating, drunk just waiting to fubar again..

he is an above average LB making almost superstar money.. he sued the NFL, was dumb enough to put his play book out on the internet..

how can you be so blind to the fact he is a moron..

Is he the guy you want your son or daughter to model after?
That's how I see it also.

It would be smart for coaches to find a role for DJ. You can maybe wait until a backer gets dinged, then give him his shot to prove to the defense he still has a role to play.

I think he could play some at all 3 spots. He has experience at all 3 spots. He could come in as SSL and let Miller play DE in some situations. Obviously he can play the weakside if woodyard needs a breather.

I'm not sure they could cut him while serving a NFL suspension.. would have to check the CBA out on that.. Plus because he does have a few friends left in the locker room that could be counter productive.

he is nothing more than an insurance policy if they have more than one injury at this point..

he has to much ground to catch up with to be worth much more than a spare part that they hope they never have to use..

I am talking about our guys who have stepped up. As in replacing them with DJ and Porter.

Even if that is all he is that's no small thing a quality linebacker that can play all three positions is valuable but JDR will find him some time on the field IMO.

If DJ can actually improve this Defense even more...SB here we come.

That is if 2011's top rushing Offense can figure out how the hell to consistently pick up yardage out of a single-back set. Looking at you Hillman.
how is he going to be better than who we have on the field right now?

who are you going to pull out of a well oiled machine to "improve "it?

He is not the sharpest tool (all though he is a Tool) in the shed and even though he has had access to the play book the actual getting to KNOW it is being on the field playing and practicing with him being #3 on the depth chart behind WW and DT how is he going to get reps in practice..

 Unit:
POS 	First 	Second 	Third 	Other

why waste his time? he is not going to be here next year unless he takes a 5 mil hit in salary or more..

he has other players to develop. Guys they took in the draft.. DJ is mikeys baggage they dumped Tebow and most of Joshes baggage as soon as they could they have seen enough of DJ to know that he is not long term.

why there are only a few nut huggers that do not see that amazes me..

That is exactly where you'd expect him to be on the depth chart not having played all season long. No surprise there, means nothing.

yes he can play all three spots but he is going to get few if any reps at any of them barring an injury..

he is currently #3 on the WLB depth chart.. which means ZERO reps..

so what is the likely hood that DJ is going to see the field or become the super start you seem to think he is?

Looking at that list I guess we know what happens to Carter when Porter is cleared to play.

THEY ARE SENDING him a HUGE MESSAGE..


is this guy your boyfriend or what I have never seen such devotion to a dumb ass player like him..

he is not Ray Lewis, or Patrick Willis he is Dumb Ass Williams.. a slightly above WLB that happened to be our tackle leader a few years ago..

I never said he would be a super start (sic) as you say. never said he'd be a super star either.

I do expect to see him on the field if not this week than by next week. JDR will use him, he has too much talent to sit the bench for the rest of the season. LB injury or not.

In fact I will bet he sees the field on defense within two games.

You do realize there is a difference between starting and getting worked into the lineup right?

Why do so many people posting here think is such absolutes?

Porter will be listed as 3rd string too when or if he comes back.

...and just like DJ he will have to work himself back into the lineup.

I'll let it go, but I am sure we'll be sorry as a fanbase. I hope I am wrong.
Still has nothing to do with his on the field play, therefore it is irrelevant that he could theoretically kill someone by drinking and driving.

You missed the point, whatever he does off the field does not affect his athletics or talent on the field. He is still an above average LB and will see significant tome on the field because of it. People are caring too much about the off the field stuff when arguing if he should play or not.


At this point in time, DJ has served his suspension, is still a Bronco, is still and above average player, will play well for us with significant reps, and the off the field stuff is done with and doesn't matter at all.

As I have said many times before if they had long term plans for him that would be one thing, but he is gonzo after this season unless he takes a HUGE discount on a contract and why would they even want to do that?

if he had not redone his contract this year for the rest of the year he would have been cut..

he is not a role model they want in the locker room, they have loads of talented kiddies they need to get reps in for later this year. So odds are he gets zero reps in practice.. chance are it will take him a couple of weeks to get into game shape by then we have 5 weeks left and the playoffs.

is he an athlete absolutely but sometimes you just got to cut the bad part of the golden delicious off so it does not spoil the rest of the fruit..

JDR does not have the time to spare getting him ready other than keeping him as a spare part in case someone goes down.. I'd even say had Mays not went to IR they would not have brought him back he would not be worth cutting someone for the roster spot..

as for betting I'll pass, I earned my money that hard way or only betting on absolutes.. this one is not quite yet absolute.. and no I do not have pay pall..

Good luck on your dreams for this skell but he IMO is toast the minute the trading period starts again..

it is an old policy that you do not lose your starting spot due to injury in this case sickness.. But once your back it does not mean a thing..

I doubt that Porter gets his starting spot back they way these kiddies are playing..

I guess that is because he is out due to injury as the old dictum goes a player doesn't lose his starting job due to injury but Carter will remain the starter even when Porter comes back unless he out plays Carter in practice.

that crap may have gotten him a place on Mikeys team but their is a new sheriff in town in fact there are two.. Elway and Manning, Elway just does not put up with this crap, he is a proud old Bronco and knows we do not have to have morons on the team..

be prepared for no DJ next year.. unless he become a model citizen, takes a HUGE hit in salary and they find another spot for him to play because as it stands right now he is not beating existing players out of a starting spot.. He just is not good enough despite your love affair with him..
