The Broncos are on the brink of something big. I feel it. You may tell me I’m feeling it because of the doldrums of the off season or maybe because the season is still nine months away. I feel it because we have players that have matured since becoming a Bronco. Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are a world away from where they ended the 2007 season. They’ve made Pro Bowl appearances, provided guidance to the rookies, and got their life together off the field. While Jay Cutler promotes his foundation and Brandon Marshall plans his wedding this summer, the Broncos fan base wonders just where these guys will end their career. Will they set new NFL records together? Gather up a Super Bowl ring? Or two? Bring Denver back to its glory days? The sky is the limit and if Josh McDaniels can bring his New England offensive flare to the Mile High City, the answer to all those questions will be an emphatic “YES.”
The Broncos have all the talent in the world on offense. Their offensive line is incredible, and once their backs are healthy, they can be a threat on the ground too. It will be interesting to see what moves the team makes on defense. Will they switch their alignment, bring in big names from the free agency market, or draft a true prospect. The answers will unfold over the next 9 months. It’s a wait and see game for now that only allows for lively discussions at sports bars, parties, and around the water coolers in Denver. So, let me ask you. What moves should the Broncos make on the defensive side of the ball?
