    I forgot that he actually has been working towards becoming a TE. From what I understand he has put on some weight so not sure he would be the WR that we saw in Training Camp. If that is the case to me I would rather have Tamme in who has great chemistry with Peyton and like I said earlier a great set of hands to catch the tough passes. He also (at least this is my guess) is the better blocker of the two.

    Easy answer. If that was a good idea - then he would have beat out Caldwell or Tamme for a roster spot...

    Yes it is that simple...;-)

    I also like how you don't mention at all the Von miller doesn't get off his block, sly Williams gets pushed back, knighton gets his legs taken out, mike Adams doesn't crash down enough to try and seal the hole and Paris lenon, Steven Johnson and Malik Jackson are all taken out by the fullback. The entire defense failed on that play and nit picking the newest member of our defense seems pretty unknowlegdable.
    This was not penetrating. This was taking yourself out of a play completely and every player does it at some point but Fua did it fairly often when in the game. I wouldn't praise Vickerson for doing that. Try to temper your hostility.

    No one on that play messed up worse than Fua. His mistake was the mistake that caused the whole defense to collapse. He have up his entire gap! Those blockers had free reign with no traffic to take on in making them. Clearly you have never played defensive line. You have responsibilities. Gap responsibilities. When you start free lancing and playing in disciplined then you stop seeing the field.

No effort to shed the block after he created such a huge hole because he was playing recklessly and not maintaining gap discipline. It was a terrible play by him through and through. He did the offensive linemans' job for him.

    He wasn't responsible for the first touchdown. He got into the lineman and drove a yard or two behind the LOS. He did get backed up on a couple of plays but he also had several plays where he stood the lineman up at the LOS and held his block.

    I'm not saying he's a great dlineman but he performed good for a rotational lineman.

He looked physically outmatched. He looked good from what I remember last year with the panthers but if this is how he has been playing I now understand why he was a free agent.

    Yeah we are thin at WR, I know most wouldn't like this but put the rb Anderson on the PS (its an option) but Robinson was with us last year and this year im sure he knows the play book, and with 3 weeks left would give him enough time to play and get some real action under his belt and while he gets a little playing time u can somewhat rest Thomas and decker by rotating them.

    All PS members have been practicing with the team all season.

    Gerell Robinson, a WR now listed as TE, is already insurance, unless he is signed by another team, as he is on PS.

    Robinson was moved to TE.

    Not WR.

    Just being big and athletic isn't enough. I mean, anyone who watched the Colts could tell you about Roy Hall.

    Who?

    Exactly.

    If Robinson hasn't learned the playbook, proven he can do something better than the guys currently suiting up, and if Manning hasn't developed chemistry with him, there's NO reason to bring him up with only 3 weeks to go.

    Not with all of the injuries on defense.

    You brought up a good point especially during the playoffs I knew the answer but was looking at the depth chart and no doubt wo Welker the Broncos are thin at WR position.

    Like last year the Broncos will have to incorporate Tamme and Dressen more into the offense so I dont see it as it urgent but still a valid point
