The Extra Credit Options are in...
So I am not a huge fan of the "IF" game but I got to thinking about the "if's" yesterday and I came up with a question to pose not only to myself but you guys. "Did Mike address the 'if's' that surround our team this reloading season?" I guess to answer that question you have to go back to last season and find our break downs. This is nothing more than a simple question with a complex answer. Read More if you want to follow my crazy logic.
THE BIG QUESTIONS:
- "IF" Travis Henry is injured again are we relying on speed backs as our only backfield solution?
- Are we capable of suiting up ANY type of Defense "IF" our new coordinator doesn't work out?
- "IF" our number one wide receiver is injured, are we capable of a good passing game regardless
- How deep are we "IF" injuries happen?
- We can get the ball longer and in better position "IF" the ST unit has a good return.
These questions are the first that come to mind but are just a few of the many "IF's" we have. Like I said, I do not like to play the "IF's" but there are people who do and they are the ones in mind when writing this.
"IF" Travis Henry is injured again are we relying on speed backs as our only backfield solution?
~ I think our draft choices proved this. With Hillis and Torain, we found some bigger backs that can take the punishment and keep Young and Hall as speed/ spell guys! This was probably a bigger concern to Shanny than most of us thought. We needed another big brusier back and he went out and grabbed not one but two and one can block exceptionally well! I do believe this "IF" is taken care of.
Are we capable of suiting up ANY type of Defense "IF" our new coordinator doesn't work out?
~I am not concerned about our new DC not working out. My concern is do we have the guys needed for every situation? Do we have the speed, size, tackling, intangibles, catching, etc for every team we are playing this year? can we match up well enough to play a good game? I think we have done well. I look forward to our three DT's (Thomas, Powell and DRob) making solid contributions with McKinnley coming in as well here and there. Once again I think we snapped this "IF" from our list
"IF" our number one wide receiver is injured, are we capable of a good passing game regardless?
~Perfect question now that BMarsh is in fact OUT. I think we not only got ourselves a good set of #2's but shored up our receiving corps in general. The only time I want Martinez on the field is when we are up by 14-21 in the fourth quarter. We have done well insuring that Cutler has a load of weapons should Marshall sit on the sideline at any time. Once again, Shanny did a great job of eliminating this "IF"
How deep are we "IF" injuries happen?
~ I don't think anyone can question that Denver went DEEP this year as far as signings and the draft are concerned. In fact most of our players from this draft will see more ST time than other time, barring any injuries. I would say Denver went for depth this year adding some of the most talented rookies out there. This "IF" is done!
We can get the ball longer and in better position "IF" the Special Teams unit has a good return.
~Eddie Royal, 'nuff' said! Our Special Teams will be much more productive this year than last. With speed and elusiveness Eddie will scare some peoples kicker/punter to kick away and possibly hit the outta bounds on kickoffs STARTING us at the 40! I would be excited to see a few of those in Denver's favor this year.
With so many "IF" questions out there I want to say this, "IF" is NOT a DENVER BRONCOS WORD OR SCENARIO! Guru is known far and wide for saying that he isn't concerned with the "IF's" so I will attribute no more posts to this word! Thank you for your time!
