    Sigh. Woodley was the best player on defense for the 4 weeks up until his injury and he still doesn't silence the critics.

    I'll take Harrison any day. He may have had an off day, but being held on almost every play and it not being called is an absolute travesty.

    I made a post about this already, but I don't blame Harrison or Woodley. The D-line is supposed to open things up for the linebackers to attack but that rarely happened, especially once Kiesel and Hampton went down. When they went down, that is when the Broncos started scoring. McClendon, Heyward and Hood were a joke. The lack of a pass rush was their downfall. Without one, you can't expect Ike and Gay to cover their guys forever.

    This was far from Silverback's finest hour, but at least he was visible on the field, and he was held on more than one occasion.

    that is true, we saw a few times he was being held...he still went after tebow on a few occasions..and had a few other nice hits...he cant be the beast he is every game...cant blame one player for that loss


    Thanks for the sig Flea

    Going forward I'm more worried about the inside LInebackers . . .

    Potsie, too old, too slow, needs to retire
    Foote, just not good enough, back up at best
    Timmons, flashes of brilliance, but far from a complete inside backer, would benefit from a proper headhunter alongside him
    Sly, . . . not really played, will he pan out, need to find out . .

    in short this area of the team needs addressing early on Draft day.

    To be fair, Timmons didn't really have a chance to excel this year. He was moving back and forth so much that he never got a chance to learn one position or the other. He was just being whipped around the whole season, filling in where ever he was needed.

    Harrison blew a knee out yesterday making a tackle he hates to make (a low one). The rules have made it almost impossible for him to play the game like he wants and should!

    Don't blame Harrison for going soft at times, blame the new rules!!

    9 sacks and 2 FF this year for a player who missed significant playing time. Not too shabby.

    Was he overrated in 08 when he had 16 sacks and 7 FF? Or 09 when he had 10 sacks and 5 FF? Or last year when he had 10.5 sacks and 6 FF? You can say he's overrated all you want but he's one of the few players who consistantly performs when he's on the field. That is a much needed asset on our defense.
