The Broncos running game has looked solid thus far. Do you believe Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay can keep the success up the rest of the season?

I think as there is tape it will slow down, but I think they are solid backs that it is safe to game plan around.  Our running game finally has some spark and we’ve been successful with some play action because of these two. Also, our O- line needs to stop having penalties and stay strong.  

What are your thoughts on the Denver Broncos defense? Do you think there is still time for them to turn things around at certain positions?

I’ll upset a lot of Bronco fans with my opinion here.  We had a solid defensive unit and broke it up.  Yes, I know there is the salary cap and yes, I’m aware of the ages of some of our players. But when a team is so cohesive, and all get along you just can’t separate them. Veteran players of our No Fly show weekly they are not as strong as individuals. The players blame miscommunication and other things, but I feel a lot is just a poor coaching scheme. For coaches that constantly talk about watching tape I can’t phantom how they haven’t fixed this by now.
