How do you even begin to talk about the Broncos loss to the Jets on Sunday? I’d like to paint the Broncos as the victims in this. The poor Womens Courtland Sutton Jersey
, unsuspecting team from Denver got run over by a better and more dominant team. Sunday’s result was something unfortunate that happened to them. Awwww...However, that’s not entirely the case. Sunday’s loss was an event of the Broncos own making. They are a team without vision. A team without leadership. A rudderless boat spinning in circles praying for a catastrophic leak or a mercy waterfall.Will someone please tell me what it is that Vance Joesph does well? What is that thing that he does that keeps him around? Surely a defensive genius wouldn’t have that side of the ball so ill prepared that they would allow big play after big play on the way to making it an historic day for the Jets franchise... with a rookie quarterback and a retread Cleveland Browns running back. The defense was awful. Von Miller is missing. Chubb is a no show. Bradley Roby looks like he’d be better suited to be doing just about anything other than playing football. You would think that he would get tired running the length of the field on damn near every play. What, exactly, was the game plan? Offensively, Case Keenum is not as advertised. When he was acquired, the Broncos PR machine did a damn good job of convincing Broncos Country that Case Keenum wasn’t Case Keenum. I’ll be damned if Case Keenum hasn’t shown up to every game this season. His throws are off target, timid, and pedestrian. Although, it’s not solely his fault. Despite a run-game the likes of which Broncos Country hasn’t seen in years, coaches can’t seem to remember to hand the ball to the running backs. Tight ends? Pish posh... Who needs ‘em? There is no cohesive plan to this offense and it shows. Watching Vance Joseph coach is like watching a drunk person try to figure out a Rubix Cube. With the unbeaten Rams coming to town next Sunday, the only way for the Broncos to have a fighting chance is shake things up and get the players’ attention. Unfortunately, we’ve seen this tragedy before, Broncos fans. There will be finger pointing, contrition, and, in the end, another embarassing loss to show for all of it. This doesn’t end well. Steady as she goes.

But he was looking at being sixth or seventh among all the safeties in the room.Then a season-ending injury to Jamal Carter Sr. mid-August bumped Thomas up the crowded defensive backs roster, and the weekend news on Cravens inched Thomas up the chart a little more. Now the former undrafted free agent is the fourth safety on the roster, backup for Will Parks, and one who will be used frequently in dime formations - a spot he hadn’t really played until the third preseason game against the Redskins.“He wasn’t a dime all last year. He wasn’t really a dime until the Washington week. That’s been impressive,” head coach Vance Joseph said Monday. “He can play that close to the ball, in coverage and in the run game, and not flinch. That’s a hard job for a young safety who’s never done it before. He’s been impressive as far as doing that job for us.”Thomas, who filled in for an injured Justin Simmons last year late in the season, knows the pressure of having to come in for a starter and perform.But now he’s got a few games under his belt playing with the starters plus some experience two weeks ago playing the dime.“It took me a few days. Football’s football, nothing has changed. The yards are still the same http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/domata-peko-jersey
, the hashes are a little smaller now, but at the end of the day it’s still 11 men out there on the field and you’ve got to go out there and make the plays that come to you,” Thomas said. “That was my biggest thing - make the plays that come to you. Don’t go out there and do anything extra or anything special, because when you do that, that’s when you make mistakes.”Speaking to Mile High Report earlier this summer, Thomas noted that he learned a lot from the veterans in the locker room about playing safety at the next level, and he appears to be putting that to good use right now.“I just went out there and said, ‘You can do this, you got this. You studied the playbook, now just go out there and have fun,’” he said about his Washington debut in the dime position. “The first drive I had a lot of butterflies in me, but after that I settled in. Once I made that fourth-down stop, I was just like, ‘I can play this. I can do this.’ It helped me stay confident.”His confidence came from several factors, including taking film and playbook study seriously - something he told MHR he learned to do from the guy he had to fill in for last year.It paid off against Washington.“When I was at dime I just tried to slow the game down. Studying film helped me do that. It helped me see the plays before they came,” he said, adding that it’s important to really study the linemen and try to figure out which will “pull” based upon their stance. “Or, if the back is kind of far wide Womens Justin Simmons Jersey
, you know you’ve got him, he’s going to release. You’ve got to understand the whole concept with offense at dime, which makes you a better player individually at the end of the day.”And support from his coaches and teammates gave Thomas a great confidence boost for taking on the dimebacker position. “VJ pulled to me aside, and said, ‘hey, if we didn’t think you could do this, we wouldn’t put you here. If we didn’t think you could make these plays, we wouldn’t run the dime. But we trust you and believe in you. You’re fast and long, and we think you can cover tight ends, so go out and play,’” Thomas told Orange and Blue Radio, adding that Todd Davis had gone over “about 40 plays” with him the night before the game. “Once [Davis] did that, I felt very comfortable.”Successfully covering veteran tight end Vernon Davis in that game boosted his confidence even more - just in time to be needed in the regular season.“It was third-and-long...and I was on top of him in one of our coverages. He pushed off a little bit and he went to go catch the ball and dropped it,. Then I was like, ‘You can’t do this. You’ve got to have better coverage on him. You’re team is depending on you. You’re out here with the ones and this is your way to make the team.’ I said to myself, ‘It’s do or die. You’re either making the team based off of this game or you’re not.’”You know the end to that story.
