In response to DougIrwin's comment:
If you compare how BB builds his team to how Elway does it, the depth factor really stands out. The media fawns over 1 or 2 FAs signed on D, but look at BB so far.
If you flipped the script last year with say Denver coming to Foxborough with their B Squad vs our A Squad, the Pats would have blown them off the field, putting up 40+ with ease.
Agreed. Elway knows what kind of team he is building. Their window is 2-3 years as long as Peyton can noodle the ball around. All of Elway's off season's moves will look stupid if Ware is over the hill (very probable), Talib cant play in January (I hope), and TJ Ward follows up his run in with the law again and becomes an off-field problem.
If that happens, Denver fans wont be happy especially after Elway let Decker walk. That offense will not be the same this year. Yes, Demaryious and Julius are forces but Welker is way done after all the concussions llast year from MAnning's ducks. Their outside WR will be a rookie, Latimer, who I like but Rookies cant match Dekcer's 1200 & 8 production from last year.
Our defense matches up very nicely with their offense now. Revis on D. Thomas, Browner on J. Thomas, Dennard or Arrington on WW and Dennard/Arrington/Ryan on the rookie or Andre Caldwell.
Hopefully all those defensive FA pieces fall apart so we can score at will on them again, if Gronk is healthy.
