  • Yahoo! AFC midterm grades the Broncos an "A"

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...yhoo&type=lgns

    Remarkably, only one of Denver's first-half opponents has a losing record at this point. And the Broncos have established arguably the NFL's best 1-2 running back punch with Mike Anderson and Tatum Bell. But the development of Jake Plummer has made all the difference. Not only is Plummer making good decisions (only three interceptions), but he's also on the way to nudging his completion percentage above 60 percent.

    Second-half improvements: The pass defense is among the league's worst, but a lot of that has to do with a lack of defensive pressure. The Broncos are last in the NFL with only 10 sacks.


    The only other team in the NFL to get the same honor was the Colts. Let's hope we can improve on this in the second half of the season!


    Go Broncos!

    Here's the link to the NFC midterm grades as well.

    We have better defensive pressure than we have had in years.

      Yeah, but I think we still need to get more pressure with just our front four.

      It seems like we have to cheat and use a few other players just to get pressure.

        Pass defense is likely to take a hammering when you totally destroy the opponents running game and are ahead by 28 points.

          i disagree with "the lack of pressure"
          we are pressuring the QB just not sacking him

            True to an extent.

            We have also had a knack of letting teams back into the game.

            That tendancy cost us in New York and could have very well cost us against New England, Washington and Philly.


            I know we won and that's all that matters but I'd rather not walk the line.

              We need to figure out how to play defense when the other team goes into max protect. Our pressure drops off the table, and we can't seem to cover only 2-3 recievers in the pattern. We need to cure this.
              Where does the abuse of end? Where?

                Hey, TDK

                For what it is worth, Emancipator, gives the Denver Broncos an A as well.

                  Why do you think that other teams are playing max protect?

                  A) They respect the d-line.

                    Furthermore, I love Coyers adjustment to max protect. (Consistently bring 1 more guy than they put on their o- line, they have 6, we bring 7) The look on the Eagles faces was priceless when they saw 9 guys on our d-line. I LMAO, guys that have played in the league for years were psyched out of their socks.

                      I'm still fairly convinced that we'll be fine if we don't get many sacks but continue to get a lot of pressure. I do wish that we could do it with mostly just the front four, but it's important to mix up the schemes and confuse the QB as much as possible. I loved the look on Donovan's face all throughout that blowout. Sometimes those big blitzes scare me, but when they are effective, they're really fun to watch. One thing I haven't seen a lot of and feel free to correct me, is LBs and Safetys showing blitz but then dropping into coverage. Either way, I'm glad that E gave us an A.

                          I was prepared to feel good about the report until they mentioned "lack of defensive pressure."
                          Then it appeared they don't know what they're talking about.

                          Anyway, thanks for the read . . .

                            I read an article in sports weekly about the resurgence of Jake Plummer and the Broncs...they had a quote from Trevor Pryce about the Eagles game..."He (Coyer) said we were gonna blitz his ass, and we blitzed his ass."

                            I heard that we added a cracked rib to McNabb's injury list in that game as well...

                            Thanks Snk

                              and how exactly did you see the looks on their faces? were you on the field?
