After a year and quarter of watching Dre Bly remind me more of rich man's Deltha O'Neal then the shut down corner he is praised to be, is it time to start thinking of replacements? I know Bly had 5 interceptions last year, and a solid 59 tackles for a corner back, but I thought the burns outweighed goodness. More often then not I find Dre Bly whiffing on the play, or simply blowing coverage and not picking up the man in his zone.
I appreciate that he comes to play(Played ALL 16 games in 2007 and every game this year), and seems to be a laid back presence in the locker room but I think he gets much more credit then he deserves on the field.
Am I overreacting do to the lack of pass rush Denver has been able to put on opposing quarterbacks? Or the less then spectacular safeties(also needs to be looked at)? Or do others share the same feeling I do? Dre Bly always leaves me wanting more, and I don't know if I will ever be satisfied.
