    Watching the game now, and a common theme for me is that the game just seems fast for young players, they have the ability, but there are slight moments of hesitations.

    I would put that down as a pretty successful night for the Broncos.

    No injuries apart from Parks and he didn't look in bad shape walking off. The first team D looked good and Chubb made some plays, the front 7 is strong. Concerns over the backfield but CJ coming back in will obviously made a huge difference.... the depth is worrying though.

    CK looked poised barring a couple of overthrows, the receiving options look strong and even H Man made plays. Freeman and Lindsay ran pretty well. The OL was good the majority of the time.

    Kelly looked really good again, very promising.

    ST's look to be a strength for once with King, McKenzie and Lindsay all balling.

    Strange to lose a game we dominated but the final score is irrelevant, PL won't be coming in to lose any games when it matters...... he was bad as usual and surely will be cut in the next 10 days.

    All in all it was a good showing.
    Per reports Parks has a knee contusion which is good news relatively speaking.

    Manning didn’t expect or see Ealy to drop into coverage when Ealy got the INT in SB50. It can happen to the best.

    agreed. I just posted that because if they go into the season with just Keenum and Kelly, and Kelly has to come in and play, he will need all the experience he can get. Also, If there are some guys they want to look at in that last game such as the last 1 or 2 WR, I don't know if Lynch is the guy they want in there to evaluate them.

    I'd say no, but there was that play against the Raiders where all of a sudden he changed protections and made Woodson (who was play slot corner) the mike to get him into the protection. Ball snapped, sure enough Woodson comes, gets picked up, touchdown. Incredible knowledge and recognition presnap.

    Marshall getting carried to the first down. Maybe if he didn’t lose that weight. Playing at a safety weight. Makes no sense
    Weight loss or not, dudes always been soft and played grab butt instead of tackling.

    When you have a lot of youth and inexperience on a team that hasn't won a game since early December, it means something. I think it's become pretty clear that the Broncos need help in the Secondary, having traded away one of the top Cornerbacks in the league for ........... nothing. They also need to get a Veteran QB in here to learn the Playbook as soon as possible. Lynch should be gone at that point as he is very simply a waste of valuable time.
    disagree

He'll get the majority of the fourth game, and I'm sure they'll hope he boosts his stock enough that someone offers a 7th for him and a 5th.

    Lindsey looked pretty good
    why? He provides no help at WR over guys like Cracraft or Patrick and Lindsey can be the returner while also being a valuable RB.

    Yes, and like what Denver (Miller) did in the AFC Championship, as well as what Pittsburgh has done forever. Going with a 5 man front helps against the run but puts a lot of stress on the LBs to cover, they have a long distance to go to get where they need to be. Mixing it up makes defenses think twice about that passing lane. Or at least delays it slightly giving the LB more time when you don't mix it up.

    He was decent on special teams last week. He just seems like the next in the line of Broncos LBs who get picked late and then developed.

    Cravens would help v TEs. But they need to add some wrinkles to their base scheme if they don't want to get picked on early by TEs. KC has everything worked out, they use motion to force Miller into coverage v Kelce, which is problematic because it takes away Denver's best pass rusher/run stuffer.

    Bring a blitz from the secondary and drop a lineman into the TE window. Something like that. Just change it up to make the other teams work for it.
