Not worried... I think both positions are a strength and judging by the response it seems no one "saw what you were seeing" either

A week ago most everyone here would have agreed that the LB corps isn't up to snuff.

There is always room for improvement, and improving matters more to good teams, not less. After TDs Peyton brings the offense together to review the drive and go over mistakes. According to you guys that would make him a terrible person, he should probably just sit down and work off the wood.
Yes because going over film and correcting mistakes is the same as trading for a bunch of new players mid season just when the team is starting to click.

I agree with this but, I still think physical teams and the way NE plays exposes our weaknesses on our D the most.

Ok we are contender that could give team problems

A true contender though actually can beat every team in your conference home or away. We have made huge strides but, we need to prove we can beat the top tier teams so far we haven't. No mulligans in football.

Saying this I'm still thrilled how we are getting better and better its fun to watch. I wish we could start season over to see how we would do against NE ATL HOU now that we have gotten more reps with O. We are better on offense now.

We just saw what happens when the opposing defense stacks the middle knowing our RB lacks the speed to hit the edge.

I'm not a huge Hillman fan, but the coaches have to show different looks and not just run the god damn power every time. We cant throw a sweep or reverse in there?

Teams will watch this tape and know what they have to do. This will be our downfall if Hillman cant effectively spell McGahee. Willis is no longer a 20 carry back.

Its looking like that 3rd rounder for DeAngelo Williams was the right move. This is on Elway for not giving our 31 yr old back a better backup.

Im still not sold on Wesley either, but i'm getting there. Sick performance today by our defense. Props to Doom,Wolfe and the D-line for sure.

I don't know why everyone just assumes that because Hillman is "fast" that he can't run between the tackles. When I watched his highlights (after we drafted him), I was pretty surprised how much of his game was between the Tackles. He's a rookie, he's learning. I think he is coming along at the right time in the season to start making a difference.

I think he needs more carries before we even know what type of player he is.

Thats fair, but going by how little we saw Hillman today, id say the coaches werent that impressed with what he did last week in his first real audition. He needs to run harder

I have absolutely no idea how you can reach that conclusion.

This was a strong front that runs out of a lot of different looks and generates a lot of pressure. Remember Hillman essentially missed all of training camp. I think they were worried about him in protection.

So our RB lacks the speed to hit the edge, and you're calling for sweeps?

There are two things the Bengals are good at. Throwing the ball to Green no matter who is on him and stopping the run. Their DL is stout at stuffing the run so I dont know how people expected to run over them. All that matters is when yards were needed on critical runs, they got them.

Also, I thought Hillman looked good making that 1st down catch.

Eh, Hillman is nothing special, not real impressive overall. Dude is about the size of Eddie Royal. He'll make some plays here and there but he has a long way to go to be an impact player.

You expect IMPACT in the third round?

I share a similar concern but I don't feel like it's an issue to the same degree as it was last year. This year, Manning can win games by passing. This, in theory, can lighten the load. It's not ideal because being balanced would be ideal. But relying on McGahee early has allowed Manning to get his legs under him after a long time out with his health problems. Manning seems to be progressing, although Id also be worried about over relying on Manning...just not as much as I was early in the season.

Our backs are sub par. There's really no denying it.

McGahee is working on his second 1,000 yard season while averaging more than 4 1/2 yards a carry.

There are about 20 other backfields I'd rather have them ours. That makes Willis and Hillman subpar partner

I like Magahee...but, I too think our depth at RB is weak. It only works if we are using the pass to set up the run. Otherwise, we are in trouble.

I'm a Wolfe fan here....but, wouldn't have b****ed if we would have taken Martin. I know there were a few of us that were lobby for him!

Personally, I think we could have gotten Wolfe where we took Osweiler...and Osweiler where we took Hillman.

The difference would have been Martin over Hillman.
