mcdaniels says winning the line of scrimmage is key in regards to a question about what needs to be upigraded this offseason. he said running the ball and stopping the run is important.

2nd year in the offense is going to be huge for Kyle. Sink or swim.

Well, he said something that all of us have been saying for years: Looking to bolster the lines on both sides of the ball!! Can I get an Amen?

He created his own problem with the OL by changing up the running strategy. They were one of the best in the NFL in 2008.

No team running a 'zone blocking' scheme has won a SuperBowl since the last time the Broncos won the SuperBowl.

Maybe it is time to run a power blocking scheme.

This is true, but it's no accident that the Broncos have been having problems with scoring touchdowns in the redzone, and especially nearly the goal line, for the past five years.

The ZBS is great for moving the ball between the 20's. But with the smaller linemen, it's not as effective for punching the ball in at the goal line.

Don't you think Wiegman and Hamilton got tossed around regardless the scheme in 2009??

Power blocking is the wave of the near future. We need to protect Orton's concrete feet, wear down opponents over the course of the year (as opposed to vice versa), and prepare for a potential increase in games that count 17-18 game season as the NFL has been talking about for the past few years. Plus it makes sense. I want smashmouth not a track team. It's football for God sakes.

yep. its nice to see a coach who realizes we arent "one player away" after a mediocre season. one thing everyone called shanahan to do for years is being done now: make the lines a priority over everything else.

Now we just have to wonder why it took him an extra year to figure out that the lines need work. I mean, we brought in guys for both but we used a lot of resources and very few went to the lines this past offseason. I cried about it last offseason. Hopefully this isn't all talk and they actually do something about it for once.

He must have missed the second draft.

Thought it was interesting that when the Marshall thing came up, McD's first response involved the CBA.

I'm telling you, this is going to be a ****-storm. Teams just have no idea how to deal with it.

except the thing is, and i know you know this, the OLB position in a 3-4 is essentially the 4th down lineman, except when they rarely split him out in coverage to confuse the offense. theres nothing LB about his actual position and what he does as compared to a real linebacker.

Really? So LBs are now d-lineman? Wouldn't Dumerville be the guy that acted more as the other lineman when he was the one always putting his hand down and rushing far more? Are all of our LBs now d-linemen? I am just wondering so I can get my positions correct. I thought LBs were LBs and d-linemen were d-linemen.

no, situational pass rushing "linebackers" like ayers are lineman who arent in a 3 point. i realize you love arguing semantics because you cant ever win a real argument about anything, but i know you know this. he is a lineman and his role is that of a lineman, regardless of what his official position title is.

The ZBS is pretty much dead these days, mainly because of the red zone problems that come with it.

Getting away from that was the right move.

I also love how when asked about the Saints/Colts game... all McD talked about was the Colts DEs for the entire time. He clearly understands the importance of a couple of guys like that for a defense.
