Default Broncos need quick strikes

Broncos need quick strikes

"Monday Night Football" analyst Ron Jaworski says the Denver Broncos will have their hands full against the best defense in the league, that of the Pittsburgh Steelers:

In this week's matchup, we will see two outstanding defenses. To me, however, the Steelers clearly have the best one in the league. They have been together for a while, both players and coaches, and that familiarity produces great team defense. The Steelers have playmakers and role players, excellent schemes, and outstanding football talent.

The Steelers have top players at every level of the defense. Nose tackle Casey Hampton is the classic huge run-stuffer you need to run a good 3-4 defense. James Harrison is the most explosive linebacker I've ever seen. And safety Troy Polamalu, though injured, is simply a playmaker who uses his size and speed effectively.

To get anything done against the Steelers, Denver's offense will have to take some shots down the field. So far, Denver has not played that style. They have only 17 pass plays of 20 yards or more, and that ranks 19th in the league. They have the talent to play more explosively with wide receivers like Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal and Jabar Gaffney. Even TE Tony Scheffler can get down the field and make plays.

The Broncos simply have to try to manufacture a touchdown. They have to come out in a max-protect set, send two wide receivers down the field and see what happens. I don't see them going 80 yards in 12 plays too often against the Steelers. So far this year, the [B]Steelers' defense has faced 73 drives by opponents, and only 11 have gone for more than 10 plays. The Steelers know how to get off the field, plain and simple.[/B] If the Broncos try to grind it out with the kind of short passes they've favored this season, it could be a long night.

yeah, they need to try throwing 40-yard bombs with an inaccurate quarterback against the best defense in the league. Go ahead and try that. I'd love it if they did that.

We need to take Marshall out of the game he is our biggest threat. Royal we should be able to contain him. We may see some long shots but I think Troy will be ready to pounce.

Bingo. If the Steelers let him get open, he could be lethal. If Orton can throw a pigskin more than 30 yards, he's going to be testing our secondary early and often because the Broncs aren't going to get much on the ground.

I think Troy will have a big game covering Marshall. I'm concerned more with Royal on returns. We can't afford to let him run one back on us.

I don't know, we are pretty banged up on defense at the moment.

Ziggy needs to step up and either Mundy or Carter have to bring it tomorrow. If this happens we'll be fine.

Is Fox staring in place of Timmons. If so the same applies.Do you notice when other teams play the Steelers and loose it's because of injury problems but we can have our starting lineup on IR and it's no excuse.

And with the bye week, Troy gets closer to 100%. I don't see the Donkeys striking quick against the Steelers defense. The only quick strike I could possibly see is them getting a big return on special teams. Eddie Royal on special teams is the ONLY thing that concerns me with the Donkeys.
