Yeah it pretty much donkey-punched their comeback efforts. Those returns are devastating. And as difficult as it was for them to score points on us, they basically needed the refs to gift wrap this for them, it made it even more demoralizing.

The other advantage to Holliday and the reason you don't see flags thrown on his returns is because the blockers don't need to hold their block very long if at all

Dude is by you before you can blink

In pre-season, it seemed like he wasn't terribly productive at WR....especially against the Cards. Oz was having trouble locating him. At 5'5" I think he gets obscured by DBs easily.

We're super lucky to have him returning kicks & punts, though! Houston regrets letting him go with each TD return

That's a great point. Special team players are good (otherwise, they wouldn't be on the team), but first-string players are on whole different level. Holliday could go from hero to zero, in a hurry...

Still undefeated in the regular season, right?

Edit: D'oh. Just saw the headline at PFT.

That's good Broncos!

Break out in this song at the stadium. Make it happen.


Still amazed that the Texans cut him. I'll take the bit of risk he poses for the reward.

I was shocked he ran right by that Giants crowd. He must've had 5 Giant players within a yard of him and just smoked them all.

It's actually more impressive to think of what he did in the one loss.

Houston probably thinks the same thing about Denver every time Chris Myers Pancake blocks a d-lineman. You win some and you lose some. Given the importance of a pro-bowl center over a pro-bowl returner, I think they are still on the positive side of this balance.

Not apples to apples. Myers was a restricted FA that was involved in a trade. They cut Holliday to make room for a back up linebacker
