PFF Refocused Broncos vs Raiders

5

When trying to locate the cause of Denver’s poor effort, look no farther than the defensive front seven. The biggest culprit up front was Ryan McBean (-3.7), who opened the season as Denver’s starting DRE but lost his job to Kevin Vickerson. Inexplicably, McBean played almost the entire second half and heavily in the first — much to the pleasure of Oakland RBs. To give up 59 points, though, you must have failure at multiple levels of the defense. LB Mario Haggan "did his part" with his worst ever PFF-grade (-4.8) after grading negatively in all three major defensive ratings (run defense, pass rush, pass coverage.) Haggan gave up a 19-yard strike to FB Marcel Reece in two targets, but was far worse in defending the run. Usually quick off the snap and frequently in opposing backfields, Haggan found himself tied up by Raider blockers early and often and was usually unable to disengage to make a play. He especially struggled with Oakland’s interior offensive lineman. If there is any silver lining at all in Denver’s loss, perhaps it is the solid performance handed in by rookie RT Zane Beadles (+1.4). Often discussed here for his negative performances, Beadles was the only lineman for Denver not to allow a sack. While certainly not having a great game, or even convincingly above-average, Beadles did look a lot more comfortable out there.

The Broncos have called off the practice scheduled for 1:15 p.m. MDT. Monday was already scheduled to be an off day, so the Broncos won’t take the field again until Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. MDT. That session at Dove Valley will be open to the public

Here's the top 10 running backs in tackles broken in 2009: 1. Chris Johnson, Tennessee, 61 2. Ray Rice, Baltimore, 57 3. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota, 56. 4. Maurice Jones-Drew, Jacksonville, 52 5. Steven Jackson, St. Louis, 50 6. Jonathan Stewart, Carolina, 46 7. DeAngelo Williams, Carolina, 40 7. Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh, 40 9. Fred Jackson, Buffalo, 35 10. Knowshon Moreno, Denver, 33 A broken tackle, as defined by Football Outsiders, is either a play in which the defender has the ballcarrier wrapped up -- or a play in which the ballcarrier fakes a defender out of his jock. Subjective, but you get the point. It's a good measure of hard runners and elusive runners, at the same time.

Speaking of the Jets, they are actively shopping guard Alan Faneca, defensive end Shaun Ellis and linebacker Bryan Thomas and will probably waive these players after the draft. You might be surprised to read Faneca’s name, but he’s the first to go after the draft.

Lombardi says Faneca could go -- it seems he would fit the power game so I wonder if we would be interested. Alan Faneca is a older [33] but the Jets run game last year seemed pretty potent.

Word in Denver is that there were cheers in the locker room when word of the trade came down last week. The Broncos even chose to have team captain Daniel Graham make an official statement about Marshall’s departure rather than the owner, coach or general manager. That was as telling as any announcement of a trade I’ve seen.

Graham and McDaniels talk

"I know looking from the outside it's hard to understand what's going on, especially when you lose players the caliber we've lost in the past couple of years, but it is the ultimate team sport," Graham said. "Not one player is going to win the Super Bowl for us."

I don't plan on creating a Denver Post acct to view the article, but it doesn't seem too flattering. In an extensive article on McDaniels, the Denver Post reports that the former New England Patriots offensive coordinator and star quarterback Tom Brady didn't exchange a word of conversation for three weeks during his first year coaching the Pro Bowl passer.
