Default Joe Mays "I missed to many tackles... I read all about it on the internet."

http://www.denverbroncos.com/multime...0-7c12f7acea16

Joe Mays talks about the fans negative evaluation of his play (4:00-7:40).

Thought this was relevant considering many peoples views of him on this board. It would seem he has taken notice of what you're saying.

No kidding - grab Moreno and drag him to the interweb.



I'm extremely harsh on Mays, don't think he should be playing. That said, I don't know the guy but i'm always up for Broncos players proving me wrong so good luck, I hope he gets it done!

I'm with you. I think Mays is awful, but hey...he manned up and admitted it. He's on the team so there's nothing we can do at this point except hope that he's true to his word.

I just gained quite a bit more respect for Joe Mays the person...this season he'll get the chance to earn respect for Joe Mays the football player.

I think Mays has the ability to be a pretty good player in this league...he is definitely overagressive in his pursuit and has never learned how to break down in the gap and make a tackle...that being said he is better than a guy like Nate Webster because he does make plays in the backfield every so often

I wonder how much the Saints would've paid for that hit.

Yeah. Despite his deficiencies, I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for him - based on that hit, alone.

I'd use a phrase made popular by our friend, Clayton Wendler, but it would be classless.

JOE is the straight line rhino and then whiffs when target is in motion...get him some flexibility in the stance, wide base and excellent balance and some good lateral agility (footwork) and he'll bebe lights out...even pushing all pro...lots of work but he has the tools to get there. He has the talent and instincts to get to the ball...but must finish each play like an all pro...or use the opposing blockers body to stop the play like the all pros do.

Watch film on how wide Al Wilsons stance was...he started low and wide and had amazing lateral speed and balance. He is built just like Al.

I personally love the way Joe Mays plays.

Was he brought in as a coverage LBer? No.
Was he brought in as a first day pick? No.

Yes, he's got his limitations in lateral agility and coverage but he was brought in first and foremost to be an enforcer against the run when we were soft as melted cheese up the middle.

He's done that.

If by enforcer you mean guy who misses more tackles than he should, than yes.

Uh, any guesses as to what this is supposed to be?

If it's a wolverine thing... neither the furry mammals nor Hugh Jackman (redundant?) have ever made this noise.

Maybe he just doesn't watch film? That would explain a lot.

It was scary how quick Wilson was laterally..and the way he could square up on a guy in a flash

There was some dude from Boston College who NFL Live was showing that looked like Wilson/Urlicker.

I wouldn't mind seeing them land that kid.
