It's a legitimate concern, who'd of thought the Eagles would sign the best bump-and-run CB just to play everything but bump-and-run? But when the Broncos absolutely have to have a defensive stop you would think Del Rio is smart enough to take off the handcuffs.......
2- Damontre Moore DE
2- Christine Michael RB
3- Da'Rick Rogers WR
4- Quanteris Smith DE
4- Xavier Nixon LG
5- Nicholas Williams DT
7- Rogers Gaines OT
Cfa- Latavius Murray RB
Cfa- Nathan Stanley QB
Cfa- Marcus Cooper CB
Cfa- Ray Polk SS
Cfa- Brice Butler WR/CB
I might even sub Michael Buchanon for Da'Rick Rogers and draft 3 DE's. Denver has exactly zero RDE's atm, Q Smith might have to start season on the Pup and Ayers is going into contract season.
UNLESS, the Broncos are comfortable with Dumervil, Ayers and Wolfe playing a NASCAR-like line, with Miller roving. If Wolfe and Ayers can be those guys (IF) then Miller and Woodyard can be the nickel linebackers, and IF Bailey, Porter, Harris and Florence are studs, then presumably, Miller OR Woodyard, could blitz at any time, making the defensive scheme even more dangerous. And THAT opens up corner blitzes, and Bailey and Porter are both physical corners.
Oh, man, I hopes its as good as I'm thinking.
Miller will line up almost exclusively at de in nickel situations. That leaves wood, trevathathan Mays and Irvin for 6 games. Im thinking the kentucky combo of woodyard and trevathantrevathan

@BroncosForums they're experimenting - von is hybrid DE on most downs, not really OLB, front 4 in nickel usually 91,94,96,92
As far as I know, Nate Irving is our only other option at Middle Linebacker. If he can't beat Joe Mays, then I see no reason to get rid of our starting middle linebacker.

Beef said he has the nicest body on the team, so I think that should count for something.
they could replace any of our LB's with any no-names and I dont think they would miss a beat

The question I have is this. How do guys get jobs as sportswriters when they write stuff as stupid as this?
Elway did not feel comfortable locking Mays up long-term, but still proved to not be happy with his other options. The best thing for Elway at this point is to cut or trade Mays and hope Irving can grow into the position. He is built more like a middle linebacker than Mays is and he has a veteran defensive coordinator in Jack Del Rio – also a former linebacker – that can help him fine-tune his game. Mays was given his opportunity and made the most out of it.
Obviously if Elway & Fox thought that Irving could do the job as starting MLB they would NEVER have signed Joe Mays to a $4 million a year contract! That's STARTER money.
Now this idiot can say that Joe's not worth the money. Fine, we'll see this season. But, to suggest that the Broncos EAT HIS SALARY by trading or cutting him at this point is beyond idiotic.
If they were going to replace Joe Mays they should have let him go in FA and signed a FA MLB back in February or March! Failing that they are stuck with Mays for this season and probably beyond that unless Irving just has a breakout year.
And frankly, nobody expects Irving to do much this season. That's why he is the backup. If he supplants Mays by the end of the season we'll know he's had some significant development this year and that Mays will be expendable next off season.
Until then this idiot needs to give it a rest.
They've been running Irving at SLB in camp.Originally Posted by getlynched47
