    Read the story ..." Dean Pees may find trouble in Denver"
    By Ron Borges

    at:

    http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/columnists/view.bg?articleid=1226848

    It seems it’s not just star players that Josh McDaniels can’t get along with in Denver. He can’t get along with top-shelf coaches either, a fact that opened the door for recently departed Patriots [team stats] defensive coordinator Dean Pees to safely walk out of New England last week without a job or real worries about long-term unemployment.

    Less than two weeks after McDaniels acted in a way he would never tolerate from his players - like a petulant child - when he refused to provide his team its best chance to win its final game by benching Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall and tight end Tony Scheffler, he called in defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and told him in no uncertain terms his Broncos would not be blitzing next season like they did this year...

    When I first laid eyes on McDaniels I thought he was a cocky little **** head. So I am not to surprised that all this is coming out about how he acts.

    Before fans revolt, Pat Bowlen needs to drag Little Joshie out to the woodshed with cat o'nine tails in hand to impress upon him once and for all, that this ain't Madden 2010.

    Our guys will look like coverage kings if we can blitz and put constant pressure. It was basically unfair the position we put the rooks(Corners) in this year.

    1. Go against the top receivers in the league
    2. Provide ****ty to no safety help
    3. Very little constant pass rush.

    Give these guys some support and you will see them shine.

    We were 3rd in the league in team sacks. I think it had more to do with our young guys getting schooled and Wilson being total garbage (linebackers weren't much help either). I can give the rooks a pass but Wilson's gotta go, oh and an upgrade at LB is a must.

    Agreed but alot of our sacks came in bunches, there were such long voids between them. There were many games and many times in games where the QB would just sit their and pick his target.

    I am not giving the rooks a total out here either. They were schooled a good amount as well, but many of those plays came with little to no pressure from our line.

    I'm glad we got Nolan, but I watched most of those Bronco games & I distinctly remember them getting burned for TD's due to all out blitzes more than just a couple of times.

    I'm sure we will do much better next season with Nolan as DC. Getting better linebackers is probably going to help as well

    Then you must read "The World According To Vaark" and everything
    will become clear.
    All the codes are in the back of the book.
    Google it or Amazon.com
    You will enjoy it if you like "The Far Side" and such.
    Some people buy it just for the pictures.
    Hope that helps.

    Sacks don't mean we got consistent pressure either, Some plays i remeber the opposing QB had a good 10 seconds to throw the ball. Darelle Revis couldn't even cover that long. Sacks are a good indication, but look at the Jets they didn't have as many sacks as us but still got consistant pressure and had the #1 D.

    I had no problem understanding what Vaark meant. But, then, I liked Olbermann & Patrick on SportsCenter back in the day as well as Denis Leary, Steven Wright, & early Dennis Miller (when he was funny).

    As for blitzing, If you do it constantly then you are playing with fire, scarecrow.

    The secret IMO is the element of surpise by and mixing personnel and a coverage schemes. Dare I say the defensive equivalent of the Rams offense led by Mike Martz?

    beyond that, although I do enjoy being purposely oblique, (unless as you are aware it applies to Satan), realistically in this case, anyone who cares to take a second to google "cat o nine tails" and the context that "woodshed" is generally used, shouldn't find this post too hard to understand not to mention adding to their knowledge base.

    I couldn't agree more, the statistics of cornerbacks in the league are misleading as a good supporting cast (safeties, consistent pressure on the QB) really can skew numbers.
