    Peyton Manning just had the greatest season ever for a QB and his ratings reflect that except for his ELU. Are you kidding me!!!

    But seriously Manning is awesome. Osweiller has looked pretty average so far but he can throw it really far you guys.


    The addition of Sanders will make up for the loss of Decker this offseason. Demaryius Thomas is a matchup nightmare for any DB with his size and speed. Denver first priority will be signing Bay-Bay to a long term contract before he hits Free agency in 2015. Welker's catching rating is way too high, his drop % was one of the worst in the NFL last year, he may need to take a pay cut if he wants to stick around. Their 2nd round rookie Latimer has some pretty nice stats to be a solid #2 opposite Thomas, looking forward to seeing what he can do.

    Finally healthy, Julius Thomas showed why Denver took a chance on the Portland St TE in the 4th round of the 2011 with a Broncos record 12 TDs in 2013. Tamme is a solid TE and Dreesen(who has been cut) can step in if needed, blocking is his specialty though. WR turned TE Gerell Robinson is an interesting prospect that could earn playing time down the road.


    Running Backs

    Montee Ball will be asked to carry the load for a weak RB corp. Hillman has been a bust so far but he has nice ratings in the game which will make him look better than he really is. Every year fans get excited about CJ Anderson and his 57 yards vs guys that will be manning the cell phone boost at the mall.
    Virgil Green is a solid FB that will contribute both in the passing game and run game.

    Offensive line

    Easily Denver's strongest unit. With the return of Ryan Clady, Peyton will have all day to find his weapons. Orlando Franklin moves from RT to LG, drafted for his run blocking ability Franklin has shown that he's one of the best at protecting the QB ranking #1 among tackles in pass blocking efficiency. Louis Vasquez is another stud in protecting the QB ranking #2 in PBE among guards last year, Vasquez and Franklin will need to create holes for Ball if Denver wants to make it back to the Super Bowl. Chris Clark filled in nicely for Clady but was exposed a few times last year, notably vs Robert Mathis and Seattle.


    Defensive line

    Denver added future HOF Demarcus Ware to replace Shaun Phillips who performed very well for them last year to a three years contract, if Ware can stay healthy he will cause havoc. DT Terrance Knighton has resurrected his career in Denver and will look for a big contract following this season. The rest of the D-line is young and relatively inexperienced, but Derek Wolfe before being sideline with an unknown illness was turning into a solid LE and RE Quanterus Smith(2013-5th round) who basically red shirted last year has the athleticism to be a pretty good pass rusher behind Ware.


    Von Miller is a beast. Danny Trevathan was very important to Denver's defense last year both in the pass game and run game. Nate Irving is listed as a OLB but will most likely be the starting Mike once the season rolls around. If not, Lamin Barrow(2014-5th rounder) has pretty good size and quickness to handle the position.


    Defensive backs

    The Broncos replaced future first ballot Hall of Fame Champ Bailey with Johnny Drive-by. Talib will take care of his side of the field with great ZCV and MCV skills. Chris Harris is arguably the best nickel CB in the league but may need to cover the outside WRs if rookie first round pick Bradley Roby struggles covering opposing teams #2s. Kayvon Webster and Tony Carter will be battling for a spot on Dime packages.

    TJ Ward is basically a LB in a safety's body. His Hitting Power 92, will surely cause a few fumbles this year. Ihenacho and Bruton give Denver nice depth in the secondary but will most likely be special teamers for the next few years. Rahim Moore has the potential to be a very good FS but inconsistency and injuries make him
    replaceable if both sides can't reach an agreement after this year.

    Special teams

    Matt Prater range starts when he steps on the field, the same can not be said for punter Colquitt who has struggled mightily the past three years but the FO still keeps him around for some reason.
    With speed king Trindon Holliday gone, Denver is in need of a returner but will have Andre Caldwell and Jordan Norwood return kicks for the time being.

    Outside of RB they really have no holes. They are freakin beastly across the board. Just gotta hope that the salary cap catches up with them in S2/S3 etc.
