I'd honestly rather this be the week that Champ begins his work on his way back into football shape. I feel more comfortable about him playing against Smith than I would have against Brady or even against Rivers in a couple weeks.

We lose Wolfe, and the same thing happens while we totally miss how great of an opportunity this is for Malik Jackson. I understand it depreciates our depth, and limits our rotation, but there are some pretty impressive backups poised to step up.

We'll probably be fine as long as KC doesn't dominate the TOP. Need to keep our lineman fresh

I think we're hopeful but not expecting very much. Sly is alright, but he's young and largely unproven. I haven't read anyone down on him here...

food poisoning was the supposed culprit for Wolfe's 20lbs weight loss... I seriously hope this seizure thing is nothing serious. Maybe he was taking meds to overcome his sickness or something and had a bad reaction? Maybe he over medicated or something? Him being sick is just going to prolong his recovery and he's going to continue to lose weight.

I guess I was reading into the lack of anticipation as a regard to poor sentiment. I feel like he's played pretty well when given the opportunity in the last few outings, so maybe he's turned the corner.

The rest of the team has to step up, and KC is going to need to do the same.

Not liking it right now..

He hasn't really played all that well actually. Jackson, however, has been balling all year. Hopefully he's the one who picks up most of the snaps.

Williams is just going to need another offseason to prepare for the rigors of playing DT in the NFL. He's just not there yet.

I thought he played pretty well with the snaps he got in the first KC game.

Seizures in the NFL are often the result of head injuries. Guys have had them on the plane home after a game.

When looking at his full body of work maybe, but he played well when given a chance against Kansas City, and he played well in his 36 snap relief effort against the Patriots Sunday night.

That's a valid point, but I am not comfortable with him getting a huge amount of snaps against a good opponent at home, like Kansas City

I think it takes time for young defensive players to adjust to the Fox/JDR system, and when it clicks, it clicks. We've seen a slow but impact improvement from many of the broncos young players over the last few years, and that allows for a patient approach in my assesment of our defensive youngsters development. For some reason I feel like Sly is going to make the jump as the Broncos finish out the rest of our schedule. It also helps that the kid has fresh legs after only seeing 140 snaps this season, which could also play a big role in his ability to get over whatever rookie wall was preventing him from breaking into the lineup this season. Never underestimate the power of a young, fresh, and motivated kid against road weary vets closing in on games 12-16.

Case in point would be the 35 yard run Charles got because Williams was out of position and left a gaping hole.

Williams hasn't done anything with the snaps he's gotten up to now. That's not to say he can't improve in the future, but he's not the guy we want at DT for the majority of snaps come Sunday.

Most of that was Rahim staying in when his leg was injured and tried to play through it.

****ty thing to say but I have met him once back in 1985 (or abouts). We were staying in SD at a hotel that happen to have the AFC West Coaches meetings. I saw this guy with a Broncos helmet in his hand and told him I was a Broncos fan. He invited me after the meetings to get some PR stuff. I left with photos and a Broncos vs Rams American Bowl (Tokyo) poster that I got framed and still hanging in my loft. I will always remember how nice he was to a young teenager.

to each their own but that twitter posting is not a reflection of this man's work.. he has a ton of respect in that organization from the top down... it doesn't get much better than Mr. Saccamano... even after his retirement he is still going to be a consultant to the Broncos & he will have an office at Sports Authority
