  • Defensive injuries.

    I know we are all down on the defense, and with good reason, but have the Broncos ever had so many injuries in the same season, especially to one side of the field. Look at who the Broncos expected to start the season.

    LDE: Wolfe - Out with mysterious illness
    DT: Vickerson- Out for season with hip injury
    DT: Knighton- Healthy
    RDE: Ayers/Phillips- Healthy

    SLB: Miller- Missed 6 games with suspension
    MLB: Woodyard- Missed 2-3 games with neck
    WLB: Travaython- Lots of little injuries, but no significant missed time

    CB: Bailey- has been out most of the season with a foot injury
    CB: DRC- Missed a few key games with shoulder
    SS: Ihanacho- Has had injuries, but no significant time missed
    FS: Moore- Leg injury, missed second half of the season

    So altogether, there has been 4 players that haven't missed significant time from the defense. Add to that our LT out for the season, starting C injured before the season starts, TE missing a few games, Welker with the concussion missing this last game and Manning with his ankle issues.

    Injury bug has plagued the Broncos this year. Hopefully they can get somewhat healthy to make a push into the playoffs.

    you are not talking about how bad the depth on the roster is...

    no quality backups to weather the storm

      Vick was the back breaker. Safety has become a major liability in the pass game and run game.

        No team has enough quality backups to make up for that many injuries. You only have 53 roster spots. They have guys good enough to make up for a game or two at one or 2 spots, but having a significant injury in every position on the field is just too much.

              Technically having the refs on your team does not count as backups

                Are you joking? Their defense is a huge factor in them being a 3 loss team so far. They are 10th in the league in points. We're 25th.

                  I honestly think we have a top ten if not top five D if not for tue inordinate amount of injuries and a suspension to our defensive MVP, the nature of our offense, and some miscues through out the year that put our D up against a short field.

                    We shall agree to disagree then.

                          I sincerely hope they do---I'm certainly not counting on it though.

                            I hope we pull a Baltimore and get healthy and then WTF smash face in the playoffs.

                            We really need a bye week.

                            All we have to do is beat the ****ing Texans and Raiders.

                            We ****ed up having a two week bye by losing to the Chargers.

                              Our first SB winning run we lost like 8,000 CB's in traning camp and Jumpy Geathers early on. Injury bug bit hard, but then we were ok the rest of the way unitl Atwater knocked out half the D the second to last Defensive play
