Adopt-a-Bronco:
Von Miller
Default Kuper and Bunkley

Both players were named to the Pro Football Focus "All PFF Team Week 7". Good to see them getting some credit despite flying under the national radar.

Hope we manage to extend Bunkley, our run defense is still not good but so far there are signs that it's getting better and that guy is playing a big role in that. We're giving up less than 4 yards a carry and aside from the San Diego game we've looked decent. No running back has scored a rushing TD against us as well, interestingly enough.

Granted we're selling out to stop the run a bit more than is healthy, but we were doing that the least few years and still getting bent over so I'll take the progress!

Imagine if we had Mebane next to Bunkley. We might actually stuff the run weekly.

I can't see why we don't resign Bunkley. He's just 27, and we've got a coach that places a premium on front 7 play.

Unless he gets in trouble off the field or something stupid, I expect him to be around for a while.

Let's hope he gets resigned and we get another like him in the draft over the next few years.
Have coveted him since we made IMO the flawed pick of cutlet instead of him.

We have needed DRafted DT players since mikey was coronated. The stop gap retreads he brought in we're all over paid worn out skells.

M. Thomas is a FA after this year too. Warren and Vickerson are under contract, but both coming off injuries.

Chris Meyers from the texans getting some positive ink....

Probably would have been wise to keep him rather than get a 6th rd from houston

Pretty sure Bunkley was one of the boss fights in Batman Arkham City.

Bunlkley played well Sunday and Kuper is a stud, not sure why guys here diss him when we have scrubs like KM on the team who deserve the dissing.

Is that the one where you have to throw freeze bombs at him and you cut him into pieces with a samurai sword?

He is better off in Kube's scheme but it was a great pickup for them.
