Broncos obviously need safetys and CB's next offseason. For this yr our coaches need to be creative because some of them aren't very good. Adams a good bkup but now that he is in there it shows more depth at safety is needed. Or really a better starter is needed.
It's not more physical, especially in relation to his injury.

Lower body injuries are much more significant to a corner than any other position on the field (WR and RB comparable) because of the start-stop on a dime, hard cuts and requirement to kick it in to 5th gear from 0.

Playing safety would still be harder on it than in the front 7, but not nearly as hard as playing corner.

I'd love for Champ to get snaps playing a deep half with Adams in our cover 2 packages. I think he'd be incredibly effective at it, and it appropriately limits his snap counts to <30.

The second challenge was worth a shot because it was, well, a fumble. I had a feeling the refs wouldnt overturn it cause they are asshats, but he caught the ball, tucked it, took a step, and it got knocked out. Woulda ended the game right there. Worth a challenge.

Honestly, felt a lot better on our punt returns with Holliday out of the game.

I don't. When I really think about it....Welker's mistake ratio is still much higher than Holidays, and he isn't a return threat.

Not that Holiday has been much of a threat recently

Welker scared the hell out of me on that one punt return where he had to run forward to catch the ball.

I'd have Holiday return kick offs but not punts... He can't be trusted on punts anymore.

For next year he's on the bubble... If I had to guess I wouldn't expect him on the roster next year.

I'm to the point now that I just want them to GTFA from it and let it end up where it ends up.

Holiday looks scared. Probably a product of our "The Apprentice" approach to coaching up after a mistake.

Don’t understand your amusement w/ “trollin” my posts but hey it is an internet forum to each their own, perhaps I should just refrain from posting some things but to be clear everything I posted was 100% accurate

I never got the impression the chiefs wanted to be the Broncos more then when I got to my seats @ arrowhead I never knew the lower level seats were orange --- literally orange. I was shocked. In pre-game they had their horse war paint race a lame duck donkey painted up in orange & blue lol so needless to say this was my favorite part of the game
