Shoved his man into the QB for a sack. Beautiful.

Lots of people owe Elway an apology. He and Osweiller look like pretty good second round picks at the moment. Obviously a long way to go

Nobody owes anyone anything. It's the first preseason game. If Wolfe or Osweiler are lighting it up come midseason, I'll be the first to come back and congratulate Elway and co.

Actually if Osweiler is lighting it up come midseason, I'll probably be pissed, but for other reasons.

Wolfe is the guy who I wanted the Broncos to draft with their 1st pick.


Glad to see that he had some success last night.

I'd say you were the only one. I honestly never heard of him before the draft and I doubt I was the only one. Big Al and DMAC had a minor meltdown after that pick.

The reason we wanted Wolfe was because DEN needed DTs and we did not want the guys at the top of all the "analysts" boards.
Players like Worthy and Poe, who i think alot uf us posters thought were overrated.
I always thought MethWolfe was kinda like JJWatt with possibly more versatility.

Wolfe is as advertised. Pretty polished player already, uses his hands well, keeps his feet moving and is in on a lot of plays. Seemed like CHI went to double-teaming him pretty quick but he still fought off the double-team with his hands and made tackles. I liked how he didn't f around trying to tackle high, he just goes for the legs and wraps up.

Pursued downfield well when the play was away from him and that is very important for a DL guy. Good field awareness, he's gonna be a good one.

I also wanted Osweiller. Look it up.
I got so much heat at broncoforums for that.
I liked Reyes at DT as well.
And i thought the RB from Boise St was worthy of DENs 1st pick.

I didn't want him with the first pick(first round pick) But after trading down in the first round I wanted him then and was pleasantly surprised when we did pick him.

JDR drafted Alaua from Cal and got blasted for it and he has been pretty damn good.

I'll be first to eat my crow from pricejj and MUG if Wolfe pans out. He looked really good last night for his first ever NFL showing.

Good to see some draft picks stepping up! Other than Von, we haven't see that much in recent years...

In Elway we trust!

This last draft had alot of DEN fans specifically NOT wanting the so-called top tier DTs becuase they had any number of red flag problems, but those same fans instead wanted some of the 2nd tier guys that they felt were worthy of 1st round grades. So your not alone.
MethWolfe and Reyes are 2 the come to mind.

Don't let pricejj fool you. He started three or four (depending on whether you count deleted threads or not) throughout the draft process on his new flavor of the month D lineman. Including 4th round phenom Jared Crick.

Only one preseason game, but encouraging play from Wolfe to say the least. I liked Wolfe too, though I thought maybe a better fit in a 3-4 defense. But the Broncos may switch defenses to either one for different looks during games anyway. I liked Reyes more, but I know I didn't need to mock his name or his life simply because the Broncos drafted him and not the DT I liked more.
