    Not having the same kind of receiver. Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas and Eric Decker were tall big wideouts only one of whom had any kind of breakaway speed, DT.

You have to play off a speedy wideout like T.Y. or Mike Wallace or Antonio Brown (shame the Steelers could not keep both Wallace and Brown).

    For every smart Wayne underneath that takes the #1 CB, you need a speedy T.Y., so if Sherman takes care of Wayne, you let T.Y. run past Brandon Browner.

    Now, with their wideout corp, DT and JT are one kind while Emmanuel Sanders is the other kind that can be a recipient of double moves, something Sherman alluded to that Peyton did not do enough of in the SB. Welker is the continual sneaky slot threat. Decker did not bring the "take your top off" dimension, Emmanuel Sanders does. Plus, once you have 2 wideouts that can threaten to take the top off like DT and Sanders, chances are the run opens up and so will the routes underneath. The underneath of JT and Welker was clogged by the Seahawks, mainly because they rotated one safety towards DT, and had one safety close to the box that they knew could easily recover should Decker catch anything underneath as he wasn't going to threaten them deep. So, that second safety staying close helped them man the slot too.

    The real question is, can the OL of the Broncos hold up to take advantage of the mismatches their wideouts can bring to the table? It will be answered in next year's playoffs. For some reason, I am feeling a Colts-Broncos AFCCG in the dome.
    Denver's o-line was one of the best last year. They are getting Clady back. Lost Beadles, but he's the lesser of the two guards and replaceable. This is a position of need but I'm confident it will be addressed.

    ...bad news is NE will probably reciprocate with Kenny Britt. The AFC superpowers are going to be like USA/Russia this year, with the Colts in the mix a bit, and then everyone else...

    CP bet? Any playoff game between the two teams won't happen in a dome!

    Has similarities and differences to Decker, should put up similar production. Poor Caldwell.

    He'll probably go through a physical evaluation tomorrow before signing the contract. Can't make it official before medical clearance, especially when he has one screw in each foot.

    Smart move by Emanuel Sanders if it goes through.
