    No Fly Zone 2.0

    https://touchdownwire.usatoday.com/2...lot-defenders/

    Love reading articles like this. With CHJ, Jackson, Callahan, Parks, Simmons, Yiadom and Fangio running the show...this has the makings of our D being tops in the league and letting Miller, Chubb, Wolfe, Harris dominate the front.

    Oh yeah...we still have CHJ in the Broncos secondary...from the no fly zone and one of the best CBs to wear the orange and blue...but we will let him continue to earn things...

    To be fair, that's just the way the NFL works. Past success are in the past, and it's about what can you do for me in the future. Nothing hurt more than seeing Champ move on as a shell of what he was to New Orleans. Even Fangio believes this, it's why he didn't watch much film of last year's team, because he wants you to show him on the field.

    I feel this way for the whole team. Like Fangio said about Fant. He has tools, but that doesn't make him a carpenter. The team has pieces, but let's see them develop first. I like the direction we are headed, but still a lot of unknowns to be proclaiming nicknames.

    How about not him... but them? The whole secondary... they need to earn that respect as a group. we all know he has individually..

    A lot will have to rely on Fangio's scheme confusing the QB. He runs a different defensive scheme than Wade Phillips did, who relied man coverage and pass rushing to get to the QB. From everything that I've seen, the Dline will need to step up much more so than in the past

    From this day forward I hereby decree the new secondary shall be known as...

    Short Knocks.

    Obviously named after Fort Knox, and of course that we are less than average height, impossible to penetrate.

    It would seem we are poised to have a better than average zone defense.

    Quite the opposite I'd say.

    Because we were playing man, and offenses knew we were playing man, the D-Line had to apply more pressure quickly. The reason Von got called for so many off-sides last year was because he was trying to overcompensate for our archaic coverage schemes.

    With all of the disguised looks and match-zone concepts that Fangio deploys QBs are going to have to spend another second or so dissecting the coverage which should lead to more sacks, and throws under pressure.

    I also think there's a good chance that we're a top 5 defense this year.

    We have incredible depth and talent on the defensive side of the ball. Now that we have a coach that demands accountability, and runs some of the most advanced schemes, we should be back to the level of defense we're accustomed to.

    I also expect Chicago to regress on the defensive side of the ball this year now that Fangio is gone.

    I agree with you 100 % !!

    The No Fly Zone is dead. It was a historically good D, but much like the other historically great D's the nickname is in reference to a period in time, not a catchall for all Broncos defenses.

    Add to that from everything I've read the D is much more about 6-7 guys defending rather than just the DBs.
