I think it's clear to say we could have picked Bryant or Thomas and been just fine. Both look like stars.

That defender's outstretched arm only comes to DT's belly button.

That's what you call climbing the ladder

How do you stop that? Answer, you don't!

I'm amazed that McDaniels had as many Draft picks work out as he did.

Well had we kept Tebow; Decker, Thomas, Beadles, and Walton would have needed to be replaced. Manning developed those guys into legit players.

That was one helluva catch. The bar I was at was going absolutely insane. Good times! Great catch by DT!

Only thing I wish he had was explosion off the line. I'm asking for too much I know, but he is something special.
The first WR taken in the draft ususally has that. I'm going out on a limb and saying Von Miller and Andrew Luck have superstar potential.

Looks like the ref is getting ready to signal incomplete.

No just the **** stick Action.

I had been harsh on him and Decker too. But, as almost everyone has, been quick to commend them and compliment their growth since their early season **** ups.

I don't remember alot of broncos fans hating on the guy, some had questions about his health though. What I do remember were tebow fans whining about him all the time cause he couldn't catch a left handed knuckleball from tebow.

This.

I admit I had criticized DT over the season. Not for being very good and putting up sweet stats. But for not reaching and stretching for passes I feel he had a chance at (even if they are low %).

For me, this turns the tide. It didn't take much. Just one. One ball he had to go get and make it his. This wasn't Peyton's play; it was all DT. Good for him, and cheers DT.

All the teams says week after week "we're working and we're getting better". This play is some proof that this isn't just a saying. They're doing it.

You were correct. His blocking needed work too. I brought it out after the Jets game when he dodged a block for Tebow. He got his break out season with a stud QB.

Let's not start pretending there weren't legitimate concerns over his hands for the first 2 seasons of his career.

So he had a few fumbles early in season, dude is amazing. I can't even remember the last time he dropped a pass or didn't get his feet in on the sidelines or endzone. He's sepcial that's for sure. That size, that speed, those hands, those feet....oh wait, and now the dude can run routes............fogetta bout it

I love our WR duo. When you try to take away DT, Decker kills ya. When you try to take away Decker, DT kills ya. If you're gonna stack the box, these boys will get ya. If you keep the safeties back, KM and WM are gonna killa ya.

No one stacks the box against us with Manning and our receivers. That would be crazy.

It's crazy that Decker is 2nd in the NFL in receiving TDs and Thomas is 7th. One year with Manning I so can't wait till next year.

Yep. DT and Alfred Morris are two absolutely inexcusable snubs. The Pro Bowl is a joke.

We don't have a brian anymore... he tripped over his dog and then got his shoulder torn up and then got punched out by Trevor Pryce.
