  • Defensive Line?

    This is probably the only part of the defense that worrys me, the linebackers, I think will do a great job, as will the defensive backs, but if we cant get any pressure on the QB, how are we going to get INT's? We got no pressure on the QB last year, and we have basically the same line, minus one starter...I am not even sure as to who will start on the D-Line...All I know is that pressure on the QB leads to INT's, INT's than lead to more victory's...

    So what do all of you think?

    With all of the additions this offseason I think there is a great mix of young talent with veteran players who should be able to act as coaches on the field. I think the line will do a much better job this year at getting to the QB.

    Plus the upgrade in the secondary should allow for more blitzing.

      the line has been upgraded quite a bit depending on how well the players respond. coleman, johnson, and ellis have all shown that they can be very good players if they remain healthy. i'd say the line has no where to go but up.

          I have a lot of expectations on Luthur.....I saw him play as a Lion and I think he is pretty good.

                I think the D-line will be pretty good this year if some of the old guys like Luther Ellis can stay healthy. But they probably won't be here many years and we need to get some of the young guys to become stars for the future.
                Mat'hir tells the future:

                "Gold. He won't be back, he is still mad at Denver." "Nope. Won't happen. If it does, someone put this in their sig and shame me all season."

                "I've been sticking with the 8-8 declaration and missing the playoffs" 13-3!

                "(Brown's) injury only being 9 months old, and Pryce's spine injury, I think both will contribute little and unfortunately land on IR"

                "Gerrard Warren will NEVER, EVER, resign in Denver next season no matter how much money we pay him."

                    That seems logical. But why would the Broncos only play him half the snaps if he was tearing it up? I hope you're right, though, because we need a good pass rush.

                        It's hard to have a motor for a d-lineman when you're being double-teamed the whole game. There are exceptions of course, but still.

                        Reggie Hayward should come up big; he played less than 50% (or was it 30%?) of the snaps last year and came up with 8.5 sacks. Reminds me of that DE on the Colts. Luther Ellis, out of the new lineman, should be the greatest contributor.

                        And like someone else mentioned: our secondary is (much) better, allowing us to blitz more often as we can put Bailey out on an island, have a safety put out a coverage-cushion helping Walls/Herndon, while two or three linebackers blitz.
