Ever since iTweetGate, fans have become increasingly adamant that nine-year linebacker D.J. Williams should be shipped out of town. In one of our recent polls, 55% of fans voted in favor of D.J. being taken out of the starting lineup all together.
My response has been that the team values D.J.’s on-the-field performance higher than his occasional off-the-field mishaps — meaning he’s not going anywhere. One of our top commenters on the site, Troglodyte has a different theory.
The caveman believes that Williams’ performance (piling up the tackling stats) is normal linebacker production and called D.J. a “just above average” outside linebacker. This opinion apparently is shared by Mile High Sports’ Brandon Spano.
After reviewing film from the last few seasons and looking over some in-depth stats, I stand by D.J. and my previous statements. Williams is not “just doing his job,” he is excelling at his job.

When the Broncos’ 2011 season came to a close, not only did it mark the end of one of the NFL’s most prolific roller coaster rides of a story, but it also left the fan with a couple heart attacks, potentially anger management issues, and a 2012 dream. The Tim Tebow lead Broncos were exciting and...
Introducing the new 2013 Buick Verano, and it's new spokesperson, Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning. It won't go at break neck speed, and that's just how Peyton likes it. Perfect for those Pharmacy runs or to make that early bird special.

After recording an 8-8 record and a playoff berth last season, Denver’s top two 2011 coordinators — Mike McCoy and Dennis Allen — suddenly became head coaching candidates.

The AFC West has been viewed as that of a ‘weak’ division the past few years. This is mostly attributed to the fact that the division hasn’t made it far into the playoffs in the last couple years.
This may be a common misconception held by NFL fans around the league. The AFC West may in fact be the most competitive division in football today.
Last year, there was a three...
