    Default Broncos DT Derek Wolfe is quickly making up for lost time

    As the Broncos were busy trying to get of the NFL draft's first round last April, they still had their eyes on the guy they believed could be a productive part of their defensive front.

    A guy they believed would be more productive than most of the other, more high-profile names that had been floated around them leading up to the draft.

    So, when, two trades later, the Broncos finally made their first pick, at 36th overall, it was Derek Wolfe.

    Wolfe is everything as a pass rusher that Robert Ayers isn't. He should get some quality time in the rotation as a rookie.

    I hope becomes huge for us. I'd love to see him in the middle for years to come.

    Miller last year was a beast in pass rush, if Wolfe is too I think people are gonna have to admit this Elway Guy knows a thing or two about drafting talented pass rushers...Hmmmmm

    If he's what the Broncos hope he is, you have four guys (Miller, Dumervil, Wolfe, Ayers) that could line up just about anywhere on passing downs. That could be pretty sweet. And if Warren and Vickerson can plug the middle on other downs, this is a very good group.

    Two ifs there, though.

    every thing I hear about the defense makes us sound TOO pre-occupied with the pass! opponents will br trying to run the ball down our throats, first and foremost. if we cant stop the run all this pass defense pre-occupation will blow up in our face!

    now about wolfe...
    we "passed' (pardon the pun) on a lot of talented guys and dropped down, doing so, to get this hand selected guy on the team! he represents TWO opportunities to draft in the first round, so in my mind, he better be starter material THIS YEAR !

    with all this versatility that made him so attractive, I dont want to hear there isnt a place for him on the line, especially OUR line!
    of course I wish him well and HOPE he is a beast against the run and pass, but given what we did to get him, my expectations are HIGH and I am not in the mood for excuses !
    CAN WE PLEASE JUST SKIP ALL THE NONESENSE AND JUST TALK FOOTBALL?

    It's not 1995 anymore. Hell, it's not even 2000.

    Teams pass, more and more, so you need to be versatile at getting to the quarterback. That IS the most important thing for a defense to do.

    I dont entirely disagree with that MO, but I have seen other teams as recently as last year gear up to be stingy against the pass bringing in high profile corner talent and pass rush talent, only to be torn to pieces by the run game and a TE specific passing attack.
    I coined the phrase,
    "attack the pass at the point of origin".
    but if you cant run the ball or stop the run, you will be holding on to a stat sheet, not the trophy, at the end of the season.
    its called the LOMBARDI trophy for a reason.
    let me know when they change it to the CORYELL trophy.

    The trophy is named after the first coach to ever win a Super Bowl. To not acknowledge that times have changed is ignorant.

    And you didn't "coin" that phrase...

    It's pretty funny that he doesn't know why it's called the Lombardi trophy.

    robs two sack game at the end of the season says different. I like Ayers for 7 sacks this year. Which perfect opposite doom

    Good because when Wolfe was asked what he'd rather do, rush the passer or stop the run, Wolfe replied with: I LIKE TO KICK ASS!

    There's no room in this man for excuses. Keep your expectations high and be sure to howl at the moon; because some just guys play pissed off.

    Ayers has 4.5 sacks in 42 regular season games. That's even playing the pass rushing DT sandwiched inbetween Doom and Miller last season. It's pathetic. Watch his time decrease more and more as the season goes on. By mid-season if not sooner, Wolfe will be the rush DT and Ayers will be watching on the sidelines on passing downs.
