  • Shanny Likes Niko

    "Niko Koutouvides earns his paycheck reading offenses and he said that the Broncos have the makings of something special."

    That's what Shanny said after the game about Niko. I hear so many people on the boards bash him. So he must be doing something good out there on the field.

    Shanny also liked Daryl Gardner... until he got into a bar fight, broke his hand, and called Shanahan a "little man".


    But, this relationship and player effectiveness is already ahead of Gardner.

          I really don't know what Niko has shown, he is pretty much watching someone else's tackle in the highlights.

            I watched that too. After watching the game again, all I saw him do was pretty much play cheerleader on the field. he watches DJ and Winbourn make the tackle and celebrate. But I'm still gonna give him 1 more game before I start to think bad things about him.
            Very happy to have Tebow in orange and blue!!!

              Yes, and I am not trying to start a "hate Niko" thing, I'm just describing what I have seen so far. I did not see 1 exciting play where he shows why we brought him here. Woodyard, for example, has been chasing the ball carrier like crazy, trying to make every tackle. He missed some tackles, okay, but he is working hard to show his value.

                Exactly!

                Hell they could hire me for 1/4 of that paycheck and toss some orange pom poms on to boot.

                  What i saw Niko doing was clogging rushing lanes and taking on blockers and allowing DJ and company to make a play... He is not Al Wilson by far but he is doing something. We have done pretty well against the run so far in the preseason and Niko has helped to do that.

                    i was kindve backing this guy when we first got him. i know his coverage skills are limited with lack of speed but i thought he can contribute on run d.

                    however i noticed on 2 plays against dallas he tried stop the player in the backfield rather than cutting the outside lane so the runner moves inside to run support. i wasnt happy when he did that. his too slow.

                        The little I've seen of him has not been impressive. He jsut seems lost out there. Not the kind of guy you need leading your deffense.
                        Only a fool allows another's opinion to anger him to the point of hurling insults.

                          you m ean like gardner, and the players we pulled in last season via FA? You mean like the RB we drafted? Like all these players we kept despite them being mistakes leads you to believe Shanahan would only say nice things to save face????

                              Obviously Shanahan gets paid the big bucks to make those decisions (as a fan, I still have yet to receive any paychecks from Pat Bowlen), but he obviously must see something that many of us don't.

                              I've been watching Niko closely and I am NOT impressed. Maybe he's better at making defensive calls, but I have yet to see him do anything else on the field. It seems like he's always the guy running on screen AFTER the tackle is made, gently putting his hands on the ball-carrier's back. Not once have I seen the "mean streak" he was reported to have.
