Who gets playing time on Denver Broncos’ stacked defensive line?

With so many great new names coming to the defense via free agency, it’s difficult to pick which one will have the greatest impact. Without a doubt, though, the most prominent name is DeMarcus Ware. He’ll be starting opposite of outside linebacker Von Miller, as they hold down two of the most important positions on the defensive side of the ball. Simply, get to the quarterback...

Examining the Denver Broncos new-look defense

By the time the 2013 season was over the Denver Broncos defense was a battered and bruised bunch. They had suffered several injuries to key players like Von Miller, Champ Bailey, Chris Harris and Kevin Vickerson. The group that started the Super Bowl looked a lot different from the group that started the opener against the Ravens. It was the weak link of Denver. Even with a high...

Denver Broncos must do whatever it takes to get C.J. Mosley

There is something still missing from the Denver Broncos defense. General Manager John Elway made plenty of fixes to defense that was average at best during last year’s run to the Super Bowl. The fact the team got to the Super Bowl with this defense is a testament to how good the offense really was. Elway signed three big name players in free agent to make his defense tougher....

Denver Broncos don’t need to Draft a defensive tackle

For years, the Broncos were weak in the middle of their defense. The tackle position was a mystery and the team never seemed to draft one good enough to do anything on the field. Last season, the interior on the defensive line was the best part of the unit. Kevin Vickerson, who got hut against the Patriots on Nov. 24, was having a stellar season. Sylvester Williams struggled early...
