  • Courtney Brown

    I have been really hoping for Courtney Brown to have a breakout season in Denver but it seems like he is not even there. Does anyone know what is going on with him this year? Look at these numbers...

    For a number one draft pick he had pretty good rookie year but has really went down ever since. Any chance this guy could ever live up to his potential? Or what do you think the problem is? I am not an expert on judging technique.

    There is no problem...

    He's been an awesome run defender, and he's done a little pass rushin' too. I think injuries have robbed him of his quickness, and he's a lot heavier than he was in college (I think). He may or may not be back next year, but I'd love to pencil him into one DE spot for the forseeable future.

    Stats don't tell the entire story, simple as that...

      I thought he has done very well. Exspecially at stopping the run.

        I was also dissapointed with Brown's season this year. I think he will want too much money to be back next year, but if we can work out a cap friendly deal, I wouldn't mind giving him one more year. He does have a lot of upside.
        Where does the abuse of end? Where?

          Ahh, Bremerton ehh?

          Anyways, Brown is probably never going to become a double digit sack threat. I dunno, maybe he's still suffering from the effects of the jumbles of injuries he's had over the years.

          He's a superb run defender, which does matter. DE's are called on to tackle ball-carriers as well, not just sack the passer...

          Guess what, if we plug in a 1st round rookie on the weak side, the pass rush problems will most likely disappear.

            I guess i just look at the giants and the colts pass rush and wonder why we don't have someone who gets more sacks. And being a number one pick just stands out. But you are all right about the run support. The Dline has been great against the run this year.

              Trust me, that problem will be addressed on April 29th (I think).

                The sack numbers have been down but Id say that the pass rush is definately there.
                And if you think about all of our defenders sack numbers are down but they are one of the better pass rushing teams in the league!

                  also

                  Let's not forget that our own coaching staff admits that in our defensive scheme the DEs responsibilities don't allow him to peel his ears back on every play. Brown is often dropping back in short zone coverage, as does Ekuban. They said, when we let them loose they will tear the place apart. They seemed to do that in the first quarter against SD and they did it against the Eagles...

                  Anyway I don't know if stats tell the whole story on Brown's year. Especially his first year. Let's see how he grades out over the next couple (hopefully we keep him).
                  "What I can promise is that...I’m going to play like my hair’s on fire. I’ve found that when you play that way, making plays just happens naturally.”

                    I think you'll see Brown here for a while, he's not goign to be askign for money, Denver is the onlyt eam that gave him a chance to play this year. and this D line has gelled very good, so i think you'll see some people stay for a while. What you have to understand is that Brown was never a sack machine. He's great at getting behind the line of scrimmage and getting to the ball carrier and knows how to tackle i'm sure you're going to see the broncos draft a pass rush specialist who isn't gonna be an every down player, he'll be along the line more of Robert Mathis who rotates to get into the back field and hit the QB. And besides the bronco's have done a really good job at geting to the qb, and roughing them up. Not to mention taht the D Line is more about getting our LB's to the QB, opening gaps for the LB's to sprint through.

                          I thought he did fine. If we are able to hang on to him, I say go for it because now that he's had a year to break in, his next will be the break out. Same with Warren.

                            The stats on most of our lineman are a direct result of our prevalent defensive scheme to stop the run. Our down lineman blow up opposing lines, creating chaos, and our linebackers clean up the mess! This forces teams to become one dimensional and throw the ball... to Champ!
