    WOW DJ for 900k? that is crazy, great value for Chicago and Huge paycut for DJ. he's a player just not worth the 6+ mill he was getting.  Tresman is making some decent moves already.

     

    I think Bronco's will be just fine, they are well coached with Fox. and I think their secondary will be better, it's not like Porter played much so DRC will be an upgrade and they seem to be high on the corner opposite champ, Harris I think his name is?

     

    Von Miller is probably the best defensive player in the league and Derrick Wolfe looks like he is primed for a great year. Probably need to add a safety but Moore is still young.  If I'm bronco's I draft a DE give Ayers a legitimate shot at playing his natural position, a safety and a slot receiver to groom behind Welker.  

     

    Don't know what they have for depth as I don't follow them that closely, but they are by far the Pats biggest competition in the AFC this year and probably next, and I'm not sure who will be better this year, but my money is on the Pats.

    DJ Williams barely played last year for Denver, not a big loss for them. He's lost a ton over the past few years anyways, hence the 900K deal. They get Joe Mays back from injury this year, I assume he will be their starting inside LB.

    BB is completely revamping his WR corp.

    First time it happened ('06) it didn't work out.

    Second time it happened ('07) it did.

    Third time (now) we'll find out.

     

    Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, and Kam Chancellor were all new starters to the SEA secondary in '11. They ended up meshing pretty well.

     

    Baltimore this season switched OC's and changed their offensive line realignment and they got things figured out pretty quickly.

     

    Continuity is important, but it doesn't necessarily take forever to figure out. Patriots problems on dline and the secondary the last couple of seasons weren't just continuity problems, they were personnel problems. Pats just didn't have enough playmakers in those spots.

     

    If Denver does a couple of things, I think they'll be fine:

    1. Make sure the players know what their role is. Part of what I think went wrong in Philly was that they just decided to put together a bunch of stars on defense and make it work. I think you need a good mix of role players and stars. Getting those 3 big cbs was a mistake.

    2. Make sure the players actually fit the system. Self-explanatory.

    3. Veterans leaders on the D need to lead their respective units. If you're revamping a unit, you're going to need a leader to be the gel.

     

    If I'm a DEN fan, I'm not too worried about continuity. If the players are serious, the offseason should be enough to work on that. DEN will be in the playoffs, so they should be able to have everything together come playoff time.

    I just don't like the personnel on the team. Outside of Miller, there isn't much that I would be worried about if I was an opposing offense.

    I am not saying it's impossible. Also, Carroll runs a VERY BASIC D there, dude. It's a NCAA based 4-3 man coverage kind of speed D.

     

    Apples and oranges. BB lines up guys in different spots, plays plenty of zone by design, etc. The learnign curve is far greater on a D like this or maybe a Pitt or Balt D.

    The base is the important part and the bottom line is, BB had many moving parts of the base he was trying to get all at once.

    Seattle's base had been there for years, even if they moved CBs and Safeties in and out.  Their front 7 was the same group of players there for a while, not to mention they drafting in the top 10-15 every year for about 5 years straight.

    You seem to be contradicting yourself in the last 2 paragraphs, too.  You're not worried if   Bronco fan and then saying you don't like their personnel and no one scares you but Von Miller.

     



    I'm not contradicting myself. I said i'm not worried about continuity issues...I'm more worried about the actual players they have on the field.
