1. The Denver defense is even more pitiful than I thought they were.
2. Eric Decker will never be able to become an elite player until he learns to stop dropping so many balls.
3. Knowshon Moreno should get more credit for his stature as a running back.
Just like I predicted, Denver’s offense had zero problems while it was their defense that almost cost them the game. I knew Denver’s defense wasn’t that great but I had no idea they were this awful….probably because Denver had yet to play a “good” team. The Cowboys are definitely no joke, but a Super Bowl contending team should not be allowing 48 points in any games. The fact that it took Romo being Romo with a late interception to win the game is not what I like to be seeing.
Denver’s offense again proved they are the best in the league. I would even dare to say they are the best in the league by a large margin. Julius Thomas is definitely Peyton Manning’s favorite and I think he will see the most catches in games like today’s.
I believe all 3 of Denver’s wide receivers have the argument or potential to become elite. Wes Welker has proven this for a couple of years now and continues to be having one of his best seasons ever this year. Demairyus Thomas had a couple phenomenal catches and is one of the best yards after catch runners in the league. Eric Decker has definitely proven himself; however he is definitely the biggest question mark of the group. He fumbled a ball early in the first quarter that could have very easily cost them the game. He has done this on many occasions and if he ever wants to make the elite status he’s going to need to learn how to make those big plays and not lose the ball.
It astonishes me how far Knowshon Moreno has come. It wasn’t too long ago that he was benched for 8 weeks because of his inability to handle the football. Since being renamed the starter due to Willis McGahee’s injury near the end of last season, Moreno has proven he deserves to be a starting running back. His ability to push for extra yards against the defense is something is very vital to making first downs. He also doesn’t have a single fumble this season and fixed the way he holds the ball. I definitely he is going to become a force to be reckoned with.
The Broncos remain undefeated with a 5-0 record. Next week the Broncos take on the Jaguars….do I even need to finish this sentence.
