Default DJ and Ayers

The other two backer spots are currently pretty weak, but they came to play, today. When we get Doom back, all we will really need is a bit of an upgrade at SILB and this should be an excellent LB corps.

Ayers looked great. Really the only one putting pressure on the QB today and that WR screen he made a play on was nice.

DJ had a mixed bag of a game for me. He takes bad angles sometimes and it puts him behind the play and chasing.

This game confirmed for me why Mayock liked Ayers. Ayers' athletic power is impressive. Its only a matter of him grasping the mental aspect and rounding out his toolbox of skills. He was in the backfield all day and was probably our biggest threat to tilt the balance of power on the LOS in the Broncos' direction on any given play. He could be a really good player.

We allowed MJD 100 yards rushing, and allowed about 170 yards passing all day. On paper, not that bad.

The problem was mistakes, big plays and just not nearly enough pass-rush.
I also thought we could have blitzed a few more times.

It could be worse. We could have given up 234 yards to some new RB named Arian Thomas like the Colts did.

When people said our run defense wasn't good today, I'd like to know what's good and then whats great.

This is MJD.

I was glad to see Kubiak finally beat the Colts.

Me, too. Frankly, I wa not at all discouraged by the loss today. I saw a lot of promising sign on both offense and defense. I think we are going to be the kind of team that has a late season run.

What surpised me was nobody was tackling MJD's legs. You can't tackle a powerhouse like him high, you gotta wrap up his legs. It's pretty dang simple. Dude can carry a DL ten yards on his back, you have to get his legs. It was ridiculous the amount of yards he got with guys hanging all over his shoulders, but nobody went for his legs.

For real, I was waiting for him to spring free.

He was close a couple times.

I have not doubt that we're adding a front seven player next year with our 1st round draft pick, which should be pretty high.

You'd probably have to be on the ground to wrap his legs.

He's a tough assignment......we could use one of those.

ILB has to be our top priority next year. If there's a next year, of course.

If we're in position to get the DE Clayborn from Iowa, it should be a slam-dunk decision.

Unless we trade it for a second rounder.

Christ, the Bronco defenders were actually hanging on each other instead of simply grabbing MJD's legs.

Ayers looks good. He would have loads of sacks if he could just get there a split second earlier. Him and Doom next year will be sweet.

Don't agree. Perfect size for a 3-4 and could be a dominant pass rusher in either defense. He has the ability to stack tackles at the point of attack in the running game and control the LOS. We have too many spare-part defenders on our defensive line, we need a stud down there.

McD, feel free to draft away.

The best thing that will happen to Ayers this year is experience, and not having to play in Doom's shadow. He gets his reps in, hopefully gets better, and we have both of those bastards coming off the edge in 2011, if they play football in 2011.
