Rhymes With Orange and Blue: How’s our D gonna Be?

Everything was looking great.
The Defense was ranked #2.
Then some playoff mistakes to debate,
And the Bronco season was through!

We’ve lost Elvis Dumervil.
Our starting safety is once again Moore.
Denver hopes to win the SB still.
So what do our Broncos have in store?

The Broncos made strides in the interior,
With Terrance Knighton at DT.
Plus the pick of Williams was superior,
These guys are young and quite hefty!

They’ll open up the outside players.
Guys like Phillips and Miller.
Improving ends Wolfe and Robert Ayers,
Our pass rush will be killer.

LB’s Miller and Woodyard will be great.
What about their middle teammate?
Is it Joe, Stewart, Steven, or Nate?
I suppose they could all just rotate?

The corners are as stacked as they could be,
With Chris Harris and DRC.
And don’t forget about Champ Bailey.
He says his tank is nowhere near empty.

This brings us to the biggest question…
The all important safety position.
Was Moore’s blunder an expectation?
Or was it just an unfortunate exception?

Though the memory surely isn’t gone,
His team and family have shown support.
Moore says that he has moved on,
And wants to show he can hold down the fort.

Our biggest strength just might become,
What our glaring weakness was to some.
We need Moore beast and a little less bum,
And those opposing offenses will succumb!
