    Even, though we've addressed the safety position in the 2009 draft, what are they odds of us drafting Taylor Mays? I still want to see this guy in a Bronco uniform.


    I like Mays too, but I think McBath and Bruton (and possible Barrett) will get a few years to prove they are the safeties of the future. I think there is little to no chance we take a S in round 1.

    The only glimmer of light at that position in '08 was Josh Barrett ... a rookie.

    Dawkins, Hill, McBath, Bruton and Johnson added!!! Thank goodness!!!:clap:

    Jim Johnson was quoted in an interview saying that the key to his defense was the secondary, especially the safeties.:thumb:

    Safeties are usually big on ST, too
    A field general safety is the cog in the sprocket if you as me. Control the middle, whack people, and direct traffic. It's usually a CB type Body and skill with a MLB mentality

    I think Jim Johnson will be missed more than any philly fan wants to admit if he isn't healthy for the season. As a person i wish him a return to good health, as a "not fan" of philly, i hope he is only healthy enough to live a great life, but not healthy enough to return to coaching.

    Cool Piece, I hadn't seen it before, but yet again chock it up to another exciting character guy that was brought in.

    P.S. I'm not real big on retireing numbers. Elway yes, floyd little, maybee, TD, no.

    Wow, every time you hear or read something from these rookies, you see a lot of drive and whatnot, but what strikes me is that you can tell from just a few sentences and phrases that they really are all pretty damned smart. These kids just might make it in this league.

    Interesting point. Is it veteran acquisition vs. rookie draft pick, or a function of time, or maybe both? Once the season starts and games start being played, long-time Broncos fans will still probably be doing it subconsciously if nothing else.

    i like the look of this guy i watched his draft profile and looked on youtube for a couple of vids just after we drafted him and i feel he could do a very good job on special teams this year and god knows we do need some help on it.

    Hopefully he and larsen step up and hit someone hard hehe

    I knows it's a topic for a thread of it's own but I agree. You can't go around retiring the number of all great players. #7 is the only number in the Broncos history that should be retired. He was, and still is, the face of the Denver Broncos. Every QB that steps through the doors is compared to him and lives in his shadows. Other than that all numbers should be available.
