Default Dennis Allen - we're watching (and collectively holding our breath)

I think I know who Tebow is, I think I know who Fox is, I think I know about Champ, McGahee, Dumervil, et al.

In my eyes, tomorrow is the point where we really find out about Dennis Allen. I think that obviously we still need some defensive talent to be "dominant" in the future, but watching the way Allen prepares for a rematch against the Patriots is one of the most interesting by-lines of tomorrow's game.

I'll be watching closely to see if he has any answer for the dual TE threat that killed us last game. Three man rush? Four man rush? Who does Champ cover? How much and how effectively do we blitz?

Tebow is the headline, but Allen's defensive plan and preparation is what I will be watching most.

I'm sure Fox has a lot to do with the defensive gameplan too.

What I'll be looking for is tackling. They're going to get their catches. That's a given. Just don't give up those YACs. If we can win the field position battle, get the rush on Brady, and do an excellent job of tackling, we can come out on top. And no TOs.

You have to disrupt their rhythm either by putting Brady on his ass or not giving their receivers free release off the line.

I agree with this. But we're also relying on guys like Doom, Von, and Ayers to get off blocks.

We also need the secondary to be more stable than it was the first time.

Blitzing Brady a lot is a mistake. He torched us on the blitz last time.

Need to get consistent pressure with the d-line.

They had massive breakdowns in the secondary in the last game.

If they are allowed to score at will, we won't win. Defense will be CRUCIAL.

I agree 100%.

The biggest goal's for Tebow and the offense:

1. Zero Turnover's
2. Find a way to score close to 30 points

However, this game, will be won or lost by our defense. Specifically, whether we can clog the middle of the field. Can our safeties step up big time, or can we disguise our coverages enough to confuse the best QB in the nfl?

Yes, Allen can make even a bigger name for himself in this game.

I think the defense has to attack and play physical. If they play it safe and drop more in coverage, the Pats just have too many weapons and will get picked apart. They need to get in Brady's face, especially early in the game, and hit him as many times as they can and try to disrupt their timing in the passing game. If they are to give up many yards and points, I would rather they got after them and tried to get heat on Brady than sit back and get picked apart as Brady has all day to get comfortable and throw. I'd rather they be aggressive than be passive on defense.

I hope they bring Von Miller up the middle like they did earlier this year. Heck even bring Doom. But Von was successful doing it earlier this year. Pats are good at containing edge pass rush.

Bring the heat up the gut and make Brady scream like girl just like he does when Gisele pulls his hair!

I'm thinking the key will be to hold them to fewer points than we score. But I could be wrong.

I think in obvious passing situations Haggen the strong side, Woodyard the weak side Williams in the middle. Up front, Doom and Von on the ends, Ayers and Thomas at DT. Mays was terrible last week and if he has significant play time, i fully expect big plays at his expense! He is a back up MLB at best..i really hope this is addressed in the off season.

Why would we use three linebackers in obvious passing situations?

Haha..true..Williams and Woods in the nickle and Williams in the dime..the front 4 remains the same. Mays doesn't make me feel good..liability in coverage and can't tackle.

If Tom Brady has time to throw (see: rush less than five), he will surpass 400 aerial yards in this game. Bring pressure and hope for turnovers, then let the offense ground out a victory. I have the gameplan...LISTEN TO ME

Good post. I agree about all the issues you stated here. How the stuff plays out in your message will determine whether the Broncos need to score 40 points or 20 points to win.

I just don't want to see guys running free, uncovered, like last time. How do we just not cover either Gronk or Hernandez on several occasions? Once, they catch the ball, tackle soundly. Make them earn it. I think I heard today that over half of these guys' yardage this year has been YAC.

One plus is Raheem Moore will not be touching the field unless it is a dire situation. He was extra special horrid against the Pats

Good thread.

I believe that Denver went to a dime formation more after the Pats game. Expect to see that tomorrow.
