I think we've found a gem in Broderick Bunkley. He continues to be a solid force on the d-line, and I was watching him tonight. He had a solid game.

Definitely a keeper and someone to build that DL around

I'm thinking Philly and their crappy run defense is probably thinking they made a mistake about now....

I hope we sign him to a long term contract at the end of the season. He shouldn't be too expensive yet and definitely is a keeper.

Ayers is finally becoming pretty solid against the run too.

I can see why the Eagles weren't happy with him based on where he was drafted because of the fact that he seems to have zero pass rush ability. But for us he's just what the doctor ordered. A pure run stuffer.

When we get Vickerson back next year, we will have : Dumervil, Ayers, Bunkley, Thomas, Vickerson, and McBean - I think that is a pretty solid d-line, actually.

I hope we get a CB in the 1st round this year...

Kind of makes you forget that we brought in an injury proned Warren. Damn, I brought it up. One less worry for the 2012 draft.

Warren is 34 and coming off consecutive injury-ridden seasons and Bunkley and Thomas are FA. Adding another quality tackle to the rotation is an absolute must.

Yep it's still a need. We've got to sign Bunkley asap though. No doubt about it.

Mebane would have been a great add, in combination with Bunkley, Thomas and McBean. Warren being healthy and you have a good rotation inside.

Oh well though.

I agree but we wont be replacing Bunkley is what I meant. Why I wanted DT in the draft and we got zero. Of course I am happy we went someone in the front 7 (Von Miller) then some draftee at say cornerback.

People were upset we didn't sign Mebane to a big deal. Not looking so bad now.

We need to lock these guys up though. We should be doing that now.

See Chris's post a few up from yours. We had the money for both.

Von Miller has had a LOT of success blitzing on Bunkleys shoulder. Bunkley just blows up the gap and Miller comes racing through. It's a really cool combination. McBean has also shown the ability to open a lane for Miller.

You forgot Ty Warren.

You know that Warren is watching this stuff go down and wishing he was out there with that D.

I hope we keep Warren next season.

He's great for a two down role to stuff the run and keep the other DTs fresh. He's not an every down player at this stage of his career, but when healthy he's one of the best DTs against the run.

Vickerson, not so much.

Vickerson is good against the pass, so that would be a good complement.

I am starting to like the play of our D-line...even McBean...and I never thought that was possible. Bunkley has been pretty key though and exactly what the Dr. ordered for this defense. Night and day difference between our soft middle of last year.I actually have confidence in our D. THAT has been a long time in coming!

The reality is though that Miller is making all of those guys better since teams are keying and worrying about him and not paying as much attention to the other guys. But it is great they are taking advantage of that and making plays, which has been years since the Bronco DL has been making plays.
