No surprises here, can we get CJ Anderson in the mix?

The biggest mistake of the game with a depleted offensive line was running 11 personnel 73/80 offensive snaps. We have the TE's to burn, use them.

Chris Clark (-3.6, 3 sacks 1 hit, 1 hurry), Zane Beadles (-2.2, 6 hurries), and Chris Kuper (-1.7, 1 sack, 1 hit, 1 hurry) were atrocious in pass blocking. Surprisingly, Louis Vasquez (+2.9) only allowed 1 hurry all game despite playing RT for the first time as a pro.

The max snaps for a defender was 75. No one along the line even approached that number. More time for Williams who seems to be eating in Unrein's totals. I won't know what to make of the rotation until I go back through and study the techniques and alignments which I hope to bring you folks this week.

Boy we sure miss the speed and leadership of Wesley Woodyard. Lenon did an admirable job and graded out pretty well but he's still not the presence in the middle we're used to having.

Welcome back Von Miller who played the most snaps out of any linebacker. In 35 pass rushing snaps, he registered 2 hits and 6 hurries for an overall grade of +3.9

Don't make too much of the even numbers along the LB's. Doesn't necessarily mean Broncos played a ton of base as he flexes into that DE position to rush the passer.

Irving is a backup at this point. Sad that he can't fill in at MIKE with Woody hurt.

Now this is where I'm not sure what to think. Look at DRC's snaps. He played extensively in the 2nd half with Champ on the sideline but still only ended up with 42 snaps. Chris Harris has a high amount. As does Kayvon Webster. I will need to look back and study the tape to see what exactly the Broncos were doing, but this does not fit the mold of Champ, DRC, Harris in that pecking order.

Feel free to discuss your observations from the game.
