Just came across this stat. Havent seen it posted anywhere.

"Speaking of underrated defensive assets, how about Denver’s cornerbacks? Champ Bailey has missed the first three games of the 2013 season with a foot injury, but Tony Carter and Chris Harris have each allowed a passer rating under 50 (42.7 for Harris; 45.3 for Carter), and neither defender has allowed a touchdown. Not bad on a defense that has faced 142 opponent pass attempts, the most in the league."


Props to our DB's!

Props to our personell dept also. These guys are finding diamonds in the rough via draft and undrafted players as well as key free agents.

Found this on the Denver television station's web site. It seems the Broncos aren't all that worried about having to play rookie Kayvon Webster:

I will admit that I was a bit hesitant on why they picked him so earlier (not doubting his talent), but so far so good. It just shows how good the scouting dept and Elway and Co. are at finding and drafting talent. The only problem is that he's behind DRC, Champ, Harris, and Tony Carter(for the moment)! It's a good problem to have.

Apparently people hate Moreno because he was drafted by McD.


Tony Carter and Kevin Vickerson are McD products, BTW.

Ayers, too, but he's been a bit of an underachiever. Also... Bruton.

So are Decker and Thomas. And Walton and Beadles too.

Although I don't understand the point

Just a double standard. I'm grateful for all the aforementioned players.

Moreno, too.

Unfortunately I think Tony Carter will be a cap casualty in the upcoming years. Especially with Webster.

I can see us moving forward after Champ is gone with DRC our #1, Harris as #2/nickle, and Webster as RCB in the 60 percent of the time we run nickle.

Moreno isn't hated because he was drafted by McDaniels. DT and Decker(although he does get a lot of hate) are McDaniels draft picks too.

the issue with Moreno comes down to production. for the number 12 pick in a draft, that guy should be an instant playmaker for a team. he should be a cornerstone player for a franchise, but Moreno has always been a letdown. Average and below average. in and out of the lineup because of injury or not being good enough.

No he's not. He was cut under McDaniels and brought back by the current FO.

His self promoting, undeserved attitude of himself rubbed people wrong too. The whole "Sauce" thing for example just made him irritating when he hasn't really backing it up. Its the same for Rahim with the stupid Dream statements. He's not easy to forgive when he says crap like that and then does nightmare stuff on the field. Fortunately, they both seem to be growing up on the field and in character.
