ok, I'm better now. I don't know whether to blame Mays or our coaching more for the whole situation.
Lost his starting job to Keith Brooking. Didn't see anything out of Brooking to suggest Mays will get his job back.

In addition the few times Irving and Trevathan were on the field they made some decent plays.

Toughest opponent will be Baltimore, but they just suffered some serious team injuries.

You have to be pretty bad to lose your job to Keith Brooking, because Keith Brooking ****ing sucks. He is one of the worst players in the league anymore.

Brooking made some nice stops in the running game and was generally less stupid than Mays. Does anyone get paralyzed by play action and fake more than Mays in the entire league? Brooking was also slower than Mays (if that's even possible) and not as physical. But the best part of Brooking was that they didn't leave him on the field in nickel situations. I don't know why the hell they keep doing that with Mays.

Really, the only chance for this team's MLB play is if DJ can step in. I think he can too, much as I dislike him as a person.

Amen to this. Every time I watch Chris Harris he impresses me more and more. Our secondary is starting to look like it will have some consistency for the next 3-4 years.

I would be shocked if the Broncos don't go after a middle linebacker this offseason whether that be in the draft or free agency.

If there's a way to land Manti Te'o, I think you have to take it. I'd trade up for sure. I know, ND hype and such, but still -- what a player that kid is. That Georgia MLB that got suspended could be an interesting roll of the dice, if we were willing to take on character risk.

Who else is out there in UFA? Is there a football capgeek to look this up?

No capgeek but found this http://nfltraderumors.co/nfltr-featu...l-free-agents/

Urlacher's out there but I think Bears fans would revolt if he left.

Lots of dudes that are headed over the hill on this list.

Kind of undercuts the preseason terror about the tough schedule.

nice find. same site has a list:

Quote:
Paris Lenon – ARI
Spencer Adkins – ATL
Jason Williams – CAR
Nick Roach – CHI
Brian Urlacher – CHI
Rey Maualuga – CIN
Scott Fujita – CLE
Kaluka Maiava – CLE
Rob Francois – GB (R)
Kyle Bosworth – JAC (R)
Jasper Brinkley – MIN
Dane Fletcher – NE (R)
Johnathan Casillas – NO (R)
Josh Mauga – NYJ (R)
Moise Fokou – PHI
Akeem Jordan – PHI
James Farrior – PIT
Stevenson Sylvester – PIT (R)
Larry Foote – PIT
Gerald McRath – TEN
Will Witherspoon – TEN
Not much there, although I confess to not knowing every starting ILB in the league that well. They do seem to be missing James Laurinaitis on that list though, and while I doubt the Rams let him go, he'd be a great choice.

Rey Maualuga would be good but the Bengals wont let him go either.

Of course we could have had Ray if McDaniels hadn't botched the first 2 rounds of 2009. Boy I hate looking at that draft and seeing what we could have had. So many good contributors in that draft and we basically went 0/3.

A large factor as to why the Broncos have little depth.

Not that I don't think Maulauga would have been a better choice than Ayers, Moreno, or Smith, but I doubt he'd be on our radar now. He's more of a 3-4 ILB, too big and slow. Unless we go more 3-4 again, I guess. I always thought Dumervil was a better 3-4 rush OLB than 4-3 DE, lots of other players would move to the 3-4 well too - Miller, Wolfe, maybe Irving. Still no real NT though.

It's an absolute neccisity along with another DT.

I'd take another safety and running back as well.

I'm really worried that McGehee is going to wake up one morning and remember that he's 31, fall apart, and leave the Broncos with RBs that can't break forty yards a game.

I read that Rahim Moore hasn't missed a single tackle this year. His play has been much improved from last season.

I've stated for a while Rahim Moore was a player. He's still working in coverage, but he will get there. Remember, he was drafted because of his ability to go get the ball, not necessarily as a tackler.

I don't think anyone believes he's going to play another down for the Broncos.

Run support isn't a problem for Rahim Moore, pass coverage is. Bites on play action, is often out of position, leaves his corners without help over the top, doesn't break fast enough on passes to intercept or break them up. That said, he does come up and tackle well on run support but is fooled often as is Adams.

He is only a second year player so still time to get it together. And I do see some improvement from early in the season. But he has not been good in coverage.

I think Rahim Moore has made some big strides this season. Does he still suck? Pretty much, but at least he can contribute this year. He has a ways to go though, but I agree the talent is there.
