  • What the heck was Broncos' linebacker Al Wilson thinking as he stood over Colts' rece

    What the heck was Broncos' linebacker Al Wilson thinking as he stood over Colts' receiver Marvin Harrison and argued with two teammates about who had been responsible for covering Harrison in Denver's secondary in the first half of a wild-card playoff game? (Harrison, who had caught Peyton Manning's pass and fallen to the turf, wasn't touched by a Bronco defender, so he stood up and ran to the end zone for a touchdown.)

    I would say he was thinking about buying him one of those nice fancy toy belts for himself!

      I thought I heard them saying "Is that how he (Harrison) gets his catchs?"

      Just a friendly little poke at Keyshawn for all of you who remember that game.

          I do belive that it was: "Thank God Marvin finally got up and left. It was getting awkward talking about him when he was in earshot like that."

            Actually, if you watch NFL Total Access, you can hear Wilson saying "Great news ... I just saved 15 percent on my auto insurance premium."

                Al wilson said he called a check before the play. Not every player got the check so they were in blown coverage and Wilson said he was frustrated from that and just didnt think about tagging Harrison down. he took full responsibility

                  Actually, when Brett Farve saw the replay, he said, "I would have touched him when he was down. But that's just me."

                      First off, Al should've downed him, just for being there, period. And being the leader he is, Al did take responsibility for that. But the question should be, why was Marvin Harrison left open. The answer I propose is that the Broncos were playing a soft cover 2 defense, dropping in zone most of the time. The responsibility then lies on the secondary to make the plays when a receiver is past the linebackers zone. Kennedy or Brandon should have covered and downed Harrison. Coyer should be humiliated with the scheme he devised and the game he called.

                        thats right cause al wilson isnt fit to play way back there anyway. what the hell kind of defensive calls were those. it was a SUPER soft cover 2 with no bump? that left just about ANY route open. they should have never had al wilson playing back that far and the safeties back there with no help, we were burned every play it seemed like.

                          Lava - so true, we had no bump at all. It looked way to similar to a prevent defense that teams play at the end of the game to avoid the big play. Why the hell would a coach devise a gameplan that allows a mentally advanced QB like Manning to have no pressure and holes to through in. Almost every pass was a high percentage attempt, a coachs dream. Again, my mantra will be, Coyer should be ashamed.

                            Al Wilson as good as everyone thinks?

                            I was just looking over Al Wilson career stat sheet, and compared to other top notch linebackers in the league, he is really just agverage. I posted on the poll i would like to see denver sign him first, but after thinking about it and looking at his stats, i have changed my mind, i think Ian Gold should be the top consideration. Sorry to say i think Wilson is over hyped. Good yes, one of the top in the league? not even close.

                              I think Wilson is one of the best run stopper and best leaders, but as far as pass coverage, he is average. I liked Ian Gold's speed and turnover ability in the passing game. I am not suprised al wilson's tackling totals are down since he played 20 yards away from the line of scrimmage. I dont like zones at all our zone is just to damn loose, players are always open. i LOVE when we play man cause we're good at it.
