With our ST struggles I'd be suprised if Elway didn't try to bring this guy back.


David Bruton out in Washington after signing three-year deal in offseason

If we were talking about adding a former WR I would completely agree that they try to bring him back.

It's a complete no-brainer to bring him back in if he is looking for a job until the end of the season. He was a team captain for three seasons, and did not choke or let the team down when he hit the field on defense. Obviously, he was not worth $9 million, but he will be back on a roster and hopefully it's this one.

I would love to have David back...I think we can really use him on ST.... Having too many men on the line is what really bugged me on Sunday....I would hope a ST captain would know that rule... plus I like him....:D

Seems like the big (only?) change from our great 2015 STs to our awful 2016 STs is the absence of Bruton and Bolden (who's also been a FA since the Bears cut him during camp.) Get this done.

I think Bibbs was playing Bruton's spot in punt coverage when he got that huge holding call.

With the exception of last week, in don't think our special teams have been that bad.

I would like him back though, but for a lot less than that crazy contract he got in Washington

How about the week took 4 kicks out to the 15 yard line?

Yeah, that was some strange decision making, but we were trailing and I think they were trying to get something going because our offense was stalling.

Poor execution, but I can live with that. Every decision to run the ball back is a boom or bust, I just don't see the 2012, 13 and 14 dumpster fire yet

You have to admit, his constantly putting us in bad field position on kick returns really hurt us in the first half against the Raiders

I really have NO idea what people see in Bibbs though. He's done very little, and most of that little was bad.

I don't mind Bibbs as a RB but he doesn't seem to have that ST's mentality. He has more of a "I can be the best RB in the league" mentality.

Sure.
But is never have picked him for that. I have him picked for just what he was during the Chargers?ngame....

A rb who has wiggle and can take a screen or pass to the house. Unlike good old Tank Ronnie Hillman...... The rest I blame in st coaches and him being something he is not. He is a cop pass catching scat back. Basically what Hillman was supposed to be

Not so much bibbs as less Hillman.

Bibbs isn't and won't ever be the best RB in the NFL but he is the 3rd best RB on the team and a better RB than Hillman. But the 3rd RB is usually a good STer.

Wow, that's an elite level of Hillman-hate: "Hillman's so bad even a really bad RB is an improvement." Not that I disagree, I just think it's funny.

I DO disagree that Bibbs is our 3rd best RB: Our backup FB's been far more productive. Bibbs' sole really good play wasn't even a RUN, but a garbage time screen pass with tons of downfield blocking in a game we'd already lost (badly.) As a runner... well, see for yourself (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/B/BibbKa00/gamelog/). Then contrast with this (http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/T/ThomJu01/gamelog/).

Draft Samaje Perine and get Geo Barnard in FA. Cut Bibbs and Thompson and we never have to pretend they make an ounce of difference again.

The Broncos preach about the running game but they have made marginal investments in RB's; an overpriced "starter" they should have let go, a 4th round rookie and a bunch of undrafted trash.

I don't mind him as a rb, but as a returner it's painful.

They shouldn't have let CJ go, but should have tendered him significantly higher. On the other hand, a tender wouldn't have really "solved" the problem, just punted it downfield "all the way" to 2017. Now we've got him locked up through 2019, and can still "punt" on him altogether after 2017 if we like, with no dead money.

Feels like theyre just shoehorning Bibbs into a ST's role by making him returner, same with Norwood. I'm actually ok with not granting a player a 53 man roster spot by virtue of returner-only role but it's getting kind of old not having a legit PR.

I would argue that CJ Spiller is not only a better PR option but also a better RB option, he's not as effective as he once was (I don't even know if he's still available) but at least you'd be getting two players with that roster spot.

They should've let him go, he's a china doll.

Like, maybe if they didn't have to break 2-3 tackles just to reach the line they'd be healthier. Or maybe if we just had a RB who goes down on the first hit; Ronnie Hillman's pretty durable, so where is he when we "need" him? ;)

I didn't say the RB's were the problem, I said they've made marginal investments in the position. They have.

They spent a 1st round pick one year, so everyone bitched about drafting a RB that high for the length of the guys contract; later they spent a 2nd round pick and got pretty much the same reaction (though, to be fair, Montee Ball WAS a blown pick.) Put it this way: I wish our offensive linemen investments were as "marginal" as our RB investments—and our beat up RBs probably do too (our beat up QBs certainly do!)

We bitched because Slowshon was a 3rd or 4th round prospect drafted by a fraud who was clearly in over his head.

Hate to say it but Elways efforts aren't any better, their backs suck.

Our problems on special teams are in the return game. Coverage is great. Dixon is on pace to have the best net average for a rookie punter in NFL history. I think the problem with special teams has more to do with Norwood than the guys blocking for him.

And to think, many were ready to cut him after week 1.
