    I saw Kupe get straight up ragdolled at times in the game
    Its been close to 2 years since his injury I am not sure if we are going to get a fully healthy Kupe again

    Can Walton play G?

    The injuries to our line our killing us right now

      We have been playing the run first and two gapping the interior. That's great and all, but penetration kills both run and pass plays. I like Wolfe in at DT for Vickerson, especially after Vickerson's meltdown Sunday night. He needs to meet the bench.

        Rest of the season? I have major doubts. Career? Questionable at this point I would think, sadly.

        And now I am pretty worried about Kuper, he hasn't looked good. I'd almost want to move Vasquez back and try Justice at RT - but I do trust our coaches for the OL, they know what they're doing. Yes, Walton can play G (C moving to G is a fairly easy transition).

        Yes. Trev/Irving/Von - I don't understand why Paris is out there now that we got Von back?

        And Malik has absolutely earned more playing time, he's getting it done from the inside and edge.

          Honestly...to be in postion to win the game missing your RT and 4 TOs, plus we spotted them 7....this team is good. We just need to get healthy and hold on to the ball.

              If broncos want to be elite number 2 can't become a habit. We've seen too many of those TOs this year.

                Walton to C and ManRay to RG? Kuper seems to need more time. I wonder how Walton is fairing.

                  At this point, it is painfully obvious that they don't think Irving is capable of leading the team when he is in. The whole "coach on the field" thing that MLBs typically handle. I remember the coaches talking during the offseason about how Irving was ready to handle the increased responsibility, but at this point Irving has been bypassed by Steward Bradley, Wesley Woodyard, and now Paris Lennon for the starting MLB role. The coaches clearly do not trust him in that position. Based on how he seems to play in games (pretty well to my eyes), it has to be the leadership/mental aspects.

                      You can add Trevathan to that list. It's been Trevathan calling the plays from Jack Del Rio the past two games without Wood.

                      I know Trevathan has struggled at times against top TEs like Witten and so on but man, for a 2nd year 7th round pick this kid has surpassed every expectation. With the way he's improved, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets the coverage part down by the end of the season.

                        1. I believe the Broncos need Champ Bailey to win the Superbowl. I also believe he will be back.



                        2. Why did the Broncos lose this game? Broncos had 3 TO's inside their own redzone, and 1 TO at the 3-yard line.
                        3. Peyton Manning was a little off, completing 59% of his passes (12.5% below his season average), but dialed in late.
                        4. I know some love to HATE the Defense (weld on your helmet Big Vick), but they actually played pretty well according to John Fox.
                        5. I understand how Manning could have gotten some dust in his eyes (he was crying), but would somebody please ask him why he only targeted Wes Welker twice in the 1st half...for 3 yards?



                        6. Speaking of the '6-million-dollar-man' (Welker) guess who was wide-open every time Manning heaved it to DT in triple-coverage?
                        7. In a world...Chris Kuper dominated the entire game until he started limping in the 4th quarter. Then he lost some mobility, leading to a Manning sack. Heroic performance.
                        8. Thank God that Chris Clark does not have to face Robert Mathis every week.
                        9. Louis Vasquez only got beat 1 time at RT, but had a crucial False Start on 1st and goal (weird for him).
                        10. Von Miller might not be in football shape, but he played 95% of snaps, had plenty of QB hurries, and had 2 TFL's.
                        11. Eric Decker had a heckuva game (outside of the pylon incompletion).
                        12. DT caught a wobbler for a TD, then drops an easy 2 point conversion. Way too many go-routes (game plan).
                        13. Broncos Offense is 1 point ahead of "Greatest Show on Turf" after week 7.
                        14. Julius Thomas hauls in a ridiculous fingertip TD, then forgets how to block leading to an INT. Not going to win in the playoffs blocking like that.
                        15. Adam Gase put Montee Ball in solitary for the week (nice Special Teams tackle btw).
                        16. Nacho shows signs of life with great strip and recovery.
                        17. Broncos Defense went back to running the 5-2 Base for about 30% of snaps (due to Von's return).
                        18. When playing in a 4-man front (Nickel) the Broncos used several Defensive Tackle combos:

                        Jumbo: Vickerson (LDT), Knighton (RDT)
                        Standard: Vickerson/Knighton (1-tech), Jackson (3-tech)
                        Nascar: Wolfe (1-tech), Jackson (3-tech)


                        19. DL Snap counts -
                        Code:
                        Von Miller - 95%
                        Derek Wolfe - 64% (dropped from 76% yearly average) (about 10 plays at DT)
                        Shaun Phillips - 54% (dropped from 69% yearly average)
                        Terrance Knighton - 54% (same as yearly average)
                        Kevin Vickerson - 51% (same as yearly average)
                        Malik Jackson - 49% (same yearly average)
                        Robert Ayers - 28% (massive drop, was averaging 48% on the year)
                        Sly Williams - 26% (increased from 17% yearly average)
                        Mitch Unrein - 12% (decreased from 29% yearly average)
                        20. I'm hoping for more "Nascar" and less "Jumbo", but I doubt it.
                        21. Does Sly Williams deserve 26% of snaps right now?
                        22. Robert Ayers deserves more than 28% of snaps, doesn't he?

                        23. Broncos still would have won without Ronnie Hillman's fumble (Welker say's "Grow up").
                        1. I don't. Love Champ but believe his best days as CB are over.

                        2. I'm rarely disgusted with a player, but with the importance of his run Hillman should have never fumbled that ball. I'd like to see him drawn and quartered much like Darrien Gordon in the Pittsburgh game, Michael Dean Perry in the playoff game and Deltha O Neal in the NE game. Or put him in a room alone with Manning.

                        5. I was wondering about that as well.

                        10 and 11. YES

                        15. GOOD

                        16. Are you kidding me? Showing signs of life? Dude, or Duke, has been showing up to every game and is sometimes the only one that does. If you are referring to a turnover, I'd like to see any of them pull that off.

                          Because you need great players to win Superbowls, and Champ is still one of the best in the NFL. In the playoffs against elite QB's, the Broncos will need a healthy Bailey to help keep opposing Offenses in-check and keep pressure OFF Manning. I think the Broncos have a several can't-lose players this year: including Manning, Miller, Bailey, Harris Jr., and Woodyard. Maybe even DT, Welker, and Decker too.

                          I said it before, and I'll say it again. Kuper should retire at the end of the year. He's a great player, but with heavy impact the ankle joint swells throughout the game. He simply deteriorates too much in pass-protection by the end of the 4th quarter.

                          Sly certainly deserves more snaps if he earns it. Increased snap count for a rookie over the season is a good thing. It means the coaching staff is trusting him more. We should worry if he gets less snaps as the season progresses.
                          Sly is developing, but gave up some crucial 1st downs on the ground late in the game. The Broncos have better options at DT in crunch time.

                          Malik Jackson has developed into Del Rio's player of choice at 3-tech in pass-rush situations. While Malik is great against the run at DE, he's no outside speed-rusher. I want both Jackson and Wolfe playing inside as much as possible.

                          Kuper struggled in the 4th quarter (limping). Remember all Knowshon's 8-yard runs early in the game? Many of them were over RG.

                          Duke started the season on fire, then was carted off the field with an ankle injury against the Giants. He hasn't been the same since, but appears to be healing up.

                            Re-watched last night - constantly out of position, missing tackles, getting washed out... just terrible.

                            Come back soon, WW.

                            Lenon had 8 tackles 5 assists....which was 2nd best on the team vs. Colts

                                Just pointing out that it's odd that a guy who allegedly missed so many tackles almost led the team in tackles vs. Colts
