"Thru 3 preseason games, the Broncos' 1st team defense has allowed only 213 yds. on 70 plays (3.0 per play) and 9 pts."

i know its preseason, vanilla etc etc, and weve seen how this story has ended before, but the team actually looks to have a real defense this year...

Just to kill any potential enthusiasm our starting defense only gave up 13 pts through the first three preseason games last year. I'm not sure about yardage.

Clearly 9 < 13 so clearly our defense is legitimate this year, duh!

I don't remember being this excited last year. No Doom, no Von, no Rahim Moore. This is a much better D. I think they will end up somewhere around 14-17. Huge improvement! Still not seeing turnovers.

Last week BUF had like 50 yards of offense at halftime. Last night SEA had 39 yards at halftime and you can thank Kyle Orton for allowing SEA one FG in the first half otherwise the D pitches a shutout

Can this style of D last 16 games would be my main question. Fast and light

Thank you John Elway for realizing we must have some sort of defense and making it prioirty #1.

The DTs will come in time but if this D can get itself a legit borderline All Pro MLBer WOW

If we stay healthy. That's the big IF for this team. No depth

Yep. Our backups are really awful across the board.
