    The O-Line is playing so much better now that Dotson has been in place at RT. I am just relieved that E.W is no longer on the Line I am sorry however he just does not have what it takes to be a RT. I honestly do not know what the reason is behind Dalton Risner's regression this year?
    I can see why Dotson was not the immediate starter....he had some plays that had me vs the Pats. Still he is much better than Wilk and I even more why it took an injury to Wilk to see the change. Starting to wonder if we giving too much credit to the experienced offensive coaching on this team.

    It's a mystery to me, too. Both Guards have had problems. Center is a rookie, but he is improving with each game. O-Line unit cohesion takes time especially with three new starters. Austin Schlottmann had to play the second half due to Dalton's injury. It is possible Risner won't play Sunday. We'll see.

    I see excuse after excuse after excuse to prop up a man who has now more than likely led the organization to 4 straight losing seasons. You can argue the little details here or there, corona, sick coach, etc. but every team has adversity. The last time we had back to back losing seasons was the 70's, Elway has doubled that prestigious honor over the last 4 years alone, those are the facts, or the results, and all the other feel good stuff a fan wants to tell themselves means nothing. The biggest issue within that though, the same problem areas today, are the same ones we had 4 years ago. And forget hindsight, every off-season it is blatantly obvious that they weren't fixed, and here we are again. Offensive line, the entire middle of the defense, and quarterback. Hey, at least we drafted heaps of fast guys
    No. Those aren't the "facts". We have had 3 losing years in a row. 100% fact.

    I am happy for Bolles. We have one of the best O-line coaches in the game, and hopefully his influence is starting to shape things up for us!

    I am going to give Bolles credit he is grabbing less, outside the core of the defender, than in any previous year. He is a very good run blocker. The better we run the football without holding penalties the less predictable we are in the pass game.

    As long as the refs don’t reverse course on holding calls because he’s still holding guys, but not as bad as usual.

    At least we haven't had Garrett bashing each week, so far, this year.

    I think he is loyal enough to take an offer. Remember even though he is on a rookie deal he is an older player who might just not want to move around.

    Denver has been activating eight O-Linemen on game day. When Wilkinson was starting at RT, Anderson, Schlottmann and Dotson were active. Calvin Anderson has been on the depth chart as backup at LT and was briefly listed as Swing Tackle after Wilkinson went on IR. Jake Rodgers had one start at RT last year and think he was activated from the PS for the Jets game. Now that he is on the roster, my guess is that he will rep as backup RT behind Dotson with Anderson backing up Bolles on the left. Morris, Bailey, Paulo, Rodgers and Muti have probably been the scout team O-Line.
    OK, thanks for the insight. It's no wonder Rypien came in and flashed an ability to make up for a subpar line playing behind those guys in practice.

    So will he be the Swing Tackle on Monday night behind Bolles and Dotson?

    There are so many injuries that it's hard for individual units to shine. The OL is not as run-oriented as I would like. But one of their problems is Lock. He doesn't do them any favors with his 'I have to make a play' mantra. He isn't Lamar Jackson. He can't outrun linebackers and he can't take a hit. He's not Patrick Mahomes, either. He doesn't execute. He HAD a rifle arm which COULD HAVE BEEN useful. Hanging on to the ball with no plan will ruin any OL.

    I give you facts and context, and you label it as an excuse? All the issues you mentioned, were addressed in multiple ways, but you choose to ignore that injuries happened. You're just so off base in an attempt to toot your own horn, there is no point in trying to even have a discussion.
    The results are what matters, and the "facts and context" you provide do not change the results, which are bad. So, yes, technically you are providing factual statements, but you are using them to justify the losing organization of which the Elway regime has now turned into. But it doesn't change anything other than making a fan feel better about themselves, because at the end of the day, every fan can pick a bunch of reasons as to why things are the way they are, but you are what you are, and Denver is now a loser unfortunately.
