Mark Kiszla: Broncos show Ravens how NFL defense is really played

What makes a great defense?

"Guys like Lewis, Ed Reed, (Terrell) Suggs. Those are some great players. Future Hall of Famers," said Bailey, saluting the defensive stars who gave Baltimore a nasty reputation.

But it's the leaps-and-bounds, breakout improvement of younger Broncos such as linebacker Wesley Woodyard, safety Rahim Moore and cornerback Chris Harris that has allowed Denver to turn the screws on foes tighter with each passing week. Much of the credit goes to the teacher.

So Broncomaniacs had better enjoy Del Rio while they can. After leading Valor Christian to a Colorado state prep championship, teenage quarterback Luke Del Rio has decided to take the bold step of walking on at Alabama.

Should Nick Saban cash in on another national championship with the Crimson Tide and return to the pros for a name-the-price contract, Bama could do worse than hire Luke's father at a salary that should more than cover the cost of the kid's tuition, room and books.

Stopping the run was identified as Denver's weakness. Since the sixth week of this NFL season, however, guess which team has been as good as any in the league at stuffing the run.

"Del Rio gets it. He's very confident in his approach. He believes in what he coaches. And that confidence is contagious," Broncos middle linebacker Keith Brooking said.

Not since 2005, when the Broncos advanced to the AFC championship game, has Denver limited foes to fewer than 300 points in the regular season. As Cleveland and Kansas City are all that remains on the schedule, the Broncos could do it again.

Because this ain't the Orange Crush.

But it is potent. Heck, somewhere down the road, this stuff might even be enough to knock Brady on his buns.

I'm hoping if the Bronx don't win the Super Bowl this year Del Rio and McCoy will stick around knowing the chances of winning a Super Bowl will be even greater the next couple of years.

Awesome. A tride and true stat. Stop the run. Last Sunday we took away Baltimore's best player by stopping the run of Ray Rice and then also getting off the field on 3rd down

Are you insane!!!! SB OR BUST!!!!!
Next year will take care of its self. All coaches leave at some point. Although I would like to keep him a while longer I wouldn't want to lose just to keep him. Besides losing doesn't guarantee he'll stay. Just by the fact that he has changed a 20ish ranked defense into a top 5 defense should get him a lot of interest.

He said top ten, but facing two anemic offenses and already in the top five, we're probably finishing top five. Well done, Del Rio. Well done.

We are giving up 19.6 for 5th place in defense

Atlanta in 4th place is giving up 18.5

so we could overtake Atlanta by season's end. We just have to give up 17 points less than them in the next two games.

They play Detroit and Tampa Bay two teams that are known to score points.

The Broncos currently allow 19.6 ppg (5th overall).
In 2011, the Broncos allowed 24.4 ppg (24th overall).

The Broncos also have 3 starters out (Porter, Warren, Hunter), and 6 new starters on Defense (Bannan, Wolfe, Harris, Woodyard, Brooking, Adams).

JDR raises all ships like the Panama Canal (shoutout to Dmac).

You have to expect both coordinators are gone with at least 10 possible job openings in 13.

I think McCoy is gone. I think Del Rio will only leave if it all makes sense.

Also, if we can make it to the Super Bowl, some teams might not want to wait for either coordinator and that could help us keep both. I personally think McCoy will be a better head coach than he was a coordinator.

I think putting no one at Mike would produce the space a better fit then what Mays gave us. Since Brooking has been playing the position, no losses for the Broncos. Yes, Brookings>everyone else

McCoy, Del Rio may benefit from Broncos' success


A defensive coordinator moving on after a season in this city has almost become expected. After last season, Dennis Allen bolted to take over in Oakland.

Other coordinators who have filled the spot over the last few years include Larry Coyer (2006), Jim Bates (2007), Bob Slowik (2008), Mike Nolan (2009) and Don Martindale (2010).

That has Bailey wondering - kiddingly, of course - if he's doing something to drive them off?

"I know I'm up there," Bailey said of where he would rank among players who've had the most coordinators through a career. "I've got to be up there. I don't know how many I've had - 12, 13, whatever. It's nothing new to me."

Del Rio has a rather good thing going in Denver with two of the elite pass rushers in the game in Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil, a talented linebacker collection and a secondary led by Bailey. That's a pretty formidable ensemble in which to build a dominating defense.

He's really in no rush to go anywhere just yet.

"When you're a young guy and you haven't been there, the urgency and desire to get that opportunity is such that you'd take just about any job given to you," said Del Rio, who was in charge in Jacksonville for nine seasons. "I don't feel that way now. If there's something that fits and the right situation comes along, so be it. But in the meantime, I'm all in, 100 percent as a lieutenant on this staff. I'm somebody that John Fox, John Elway ... and the players can count on. I'm 100 percent invested in helping them be their best."

It seemed like a lot of fluff and fodder or PR-speak after, "If there's something that fits and the right situation comes along, so be it."

I'm sure he wants to be the HC. If something comes along, and he goes... good for him.
