Default Phillip Lindsay

Playing like a mid-late 1st rounder, almost on the level of Reggie Bush in his first year in the pros. In a way it balances out last year's #20 pick Bolles, who plays like a 5th or 6th rounder.

in obvious run plays, it should be Royce and not Lindsay. Lindsay was struggling to break the line of scrimmage the last 5 run plays.

I think they were just trying to get him a hundred.

Overlooked by every team, including the Broncos who took Williams before him. Pinball numbers at CU, excelled as a runner, receiver and return man and cured the fumble issues he had early on. But somehow, someway, he wasn't worth a pick. Funny how things play out.

Outliers are just that. Great when you get them but you go broke putting your money on Orange 30 at the Roulette Wheel.

Good way to get his knee ****ed too. The defense knew what was coming and were teeing him up.

Such a steal. If only he could move the pile, I would just give him the ball on every play.

Typically when he has the ball, something positive happens and there is always the potential of a big play. The guy can ball.

I love this kid and I really love how well he's secured so far this year. Grown men twice his size are trying to strip it at the end of every run.

I also don't want to see him returns anymore. TD gotta be happy with him wearing #30

I dunno, I think things like that matters to players. You're finding things to criticize at this point.

Dude absolutely attacks the line of scrimmage. Love him, loved him at CU, love him more now. I'd argue he's the best Broncos personnel story since (dare I say) Tebow, forgetting about the sheriff of course.

If they keep jamming him up inside, especially late in games where we're trying to salt away a win and the defense knows what's coming, he's going to get hurt. Keep playing him on special teams and he's going to get hurt. If this coaching staff gets this kid hurt, I might weep.

Wtf happened to Freeman late in the game? Why did he disappear?

Freeman got hurt. Sprained ankle. Out a few weeks.

I agree though, in a game like that, take Lindsay out in the 4th. Perfect time for Booker to grind up clock.

Also, Lindsay shouldn't be on kick off return. Put in Daeshan Hamilton, or (again) Booker. Lindsay is our best RB and one of our top 3 offensive players right now.

I agree he shouldn't be returning punts. Also because I'm not sure he's all that special at it.

Lindsey got screwed by that holding call against Janovich. Was it holding? I guess, but if you are going to call that, then call at least 1 of the 5 blatant holds against Von Miller.

Also, Lindsay's strength is not between-the-tackles. He's surprisingly good on those runs, but it's still not his biggest strength.

Some of the egregious ones against miller are baffling. There was one where he was completely corralled in plain sight and nothing?

It should be but with Royce hurt it should have been Bokker getting garbage time.

The full headlock one? I might have noticed that too. I think that dolt Aikman even commented on it.

This staff is pretty stupid. Having him as a gunner?..pretending he needs to prove himself? What a bunch of tools. DT should be a gunner before Lindsay.

Treat the kid with the respect he deserves. Take him off special teams. He's too valuable to get hurt doing that crap.

I remember one that was in slow motion replay. Probably the one youíre talking about. You could see Von in the replay complain about it.
