    Wow, great article and analysis!

    • zoltanfrombudapest

      (In behalf of Terry too- he did this looks like the most professional blackandteal article ever in my opinion!) Thanks very; very much.

      • JagHack

        I loved it and look forward to the next one – our defense vs their offense. Keep the good content coming!

        • zoltanfrombudapest

          It will come!

    Awesome article, you have a talent for writing. Broncos are a tough team, but we can beat them.

    • zoltanfrombudapest

      Thank you very much for this good words about us.

      We hope the Jags can win opening day (I go even further in an uppcoming article…)

    First of all – Great article. I commend your research – this is an article that far exceeds the quality of most all MSM football outlets.
    I’m a diehard Bronco fan and you painted our defense quite well. There are only two glaring points that you missed: 1) Denver’s D will play A LOT of nickel, so Lewis will rarely ever be open – he will be mirrored by one of the following nickel CBs: Nate Jones, Alphonso Smith, Perrish Cox or Syd’Quan Thompson – all extremely solid coverage guys; 2) The Broncos 7-man front will be one of the top 5 beefiest groups in the league, with plenty of depth and a strategy of rotating in fresh, starting-caliber backups all game long. As such, the run will be very difficult to establish, and the only true vulnerability might be screen plays that rely on overpursuit and use Denver’s aggressiveness against them.
    Should be a really interesting game. The Jags have a lot of offensive talent, but there is no way the Jags hang 24 on Denver this year – the real key will be whether or not the Jags are able to stop Denver’s offense and/or force Orton to turnover the ball (which happens very infrequently).
    Thanks for the read. Well done.
