Seems alittle slow right now, but here's something I've been thinking about for awhile ... how do we stop Denver's running attack and their two headed monster of Anderson and Bell??? I know it's still several games away ... with Philly and Detroit on deck before the Broncos, but I really think we can take down Philly and Detroit. Denver will be a formidable obstacle. With modern technology and DirecTV, I've been watching a few of the Bronco's games ... trying to see what makes their running game click. Year after year, they churn out 1000 yard rushers. This year, they'll have two possible 1000 yard rushers. It's no longer a question that it's the scheme, combined with good runners. It's also been said Denver employs the smallest OL in the NFL ... I can't verify, but I won't argue. They're definitely not a knock'em down OL. Anyway, I noticed a very interesting trend ... Denver NEVER runs straight at an opponent. They'll NEVER attack at the point of attack. The OL is always moving in one direction ... keeping the D in a flow sideways. The RB then spots his hole and takes off. In the same regard, the RB also looks for a cutback lane. Most of Tatem Bell's BIG runs were where he and the OL started off to one side of the field, and then Bell would cut back into a hole left by the D. Play after play, it's the same thing ... OL slides one direction, and the RB either hits the hole or looks for a cutback lane. Mike Anderson seems more prone to try and hit that hole ... he doesn't seem to have the niftiness for the cutback. Tatem Bell has eaten teams alive with the cutback. Ok ... how do we stop that ??? I think it's ALL going to depend on out LB's. The DL guys MUST hold at the point of attack and perhaps be forced to slide with Denver's OL in whichever direction it's moving to prevent holes ... but the LB's MUST remain unblocked and contain the cutback. Sounds easy ... how do we do it ??? If we can stop Denver's running game and get up on them early, I think we have the D to shut Jake and the passing game down. Once pressured, Jake WILL make mistakes ... it's been his motto throughout his career.
