Out for Texans game next Sunday; John Lynch will be out for two-to-four weeks after being diagnosed with a fractured tailbone.
This time; cheap shot accusation by them, not against them.

Maybe, but he's still not lynch. I think lynch was a bigger threat to us. Iam more concerned about our guys staying healthy, especially Carr.

PRO FOOTBALL: Finneran hit, Mora remarks irk Broncos
Matt Winkeljohn - Staff
Tuesday, November 2, 2004

Quote:
Some Denver players were unhappy Monday when told of Falcons coach Jim Mora's reaction to the play in Sunday's game against Atlanta that knocked safety John Lynch out for two to four weeks with a stress fracture in his lower back.

Lynch, a perennial Pro Bowl player, was injured when Falcons wide receiver Brian Finneran blocked him. Lynch was seen yelling at Finneran as he left the field.

One week ago, the Broncos were involved in a high-profile flap after right tackle George Foster's legal cut block broke the left ankle of Bengals defensive lineman Tony Williams.

Mora was asked at his Monday news conference about the play.

"It was a nice play by Brian. Just an aggressive play . . . and John's a friend of mine, and I've known him for a long time . . . and I don't like seeing him get hurt," Mora said. "But it was a clean play."

When told some Denver players thought it was a cheap play, Mora said, "That's good. That's fine. They had one last week that a lot of people in the league thought was cheap, so I guess what goes around comes around."

Some Broncos told the Denver Post they were surprised by Mora's comments.

Cornerback Champ Bailey: "That's brutal. A coach shouldn't say those things."

Safety Nick Ferguson: "That's unexpected from a coach. That's all I'll say."

Linebacker Al Wilson: "OK, if what goes around comes around, be ready then. I just hope it doesn't happen to any of his guys."

Denver coach Mike Shanahan said Monday, "It wasn't below the waist or anything --- it was a legal shot. He came after [Lynch], and it was one of those blind-side shots that kind of catches you off guard. It was a legal shot."

Quote:
"We need to get in the quarterback's face," Wilson said, adding that the defensive line is working hard to put pressure on the quarterback. "That's all you can ask for. These last two games, the teams were really using max protection against us, so it was tough to get to the quarterback."

The Broncos also have been playing without Pro Bowl defensive end Trevor Pryce, who has been out since Week 1 with a back injury. His return - possibly after next week's bye week - could spark the pass rush.

"We know Trevor is a difference-maker," Shanahan said. "What I mean by difference-maker is that if he lines up on a guy, he can beat that guy most of the time."

Today's update (Thursday) - the status of Lynch for Sunday's game seems weird at best.

Default Broncos conference calls

www.HoustonTexans.com

Broncos Head Coach Mike Shanahan

(on if playing fullback helped Reuben Droughns be a better tailback) “I don’t think it hurt him at all. When he was at Detroit he really didn’t get a chance to play the tailback position as much as he would have liked and when he came in here we had established running backs and we wanted to get him on the field so we thought the best way to get him on the field was to move him to the fullback position. He really adjusted well and he was a great special teams players. So all of a sudden a few guys go down, he gets his opportunity, and he takes advantage of it.”

(on Droughns’ strengths and making the transition) “I think he could have played tailback if he was with the right system and maybe got his opportunity early. I’m not sure why it didn’t work out for him at the previous spot but when he did come in here with the type of depth we had we felt like the only chance that he would get any playing time was at the fullback position. Now you can’t always take fullbacks and move them over to tailbacks and have success. He was a fast guy coming out. He’s like a 4.45 guy so he’s got great speed. He’s a powerful guy. He’s about 220 pounds. So at times we did use him at the tailback position in our one back set. It’s not like it’s a big surprise but you never know for sure until the guy really carries the ball 25 or 30 times a game. Can he hold on to the ball? Can he stay healthy? Those type of things.”

(on if he is surprised by the Texans) “No, not at all. We had a chance to practice against them the year before a couple of days. I know Coach (Dom) Capers very well and how good a football coach he is. I knew it was just matter of time with him and Charley (Casserly) and putting a team together. It doesn’t surprise me at all.”

(on cornerback Champ Bailey) “I think until you actually work with someone you really don’t know how they handle themselves, how hard they work and what type of talent they do have. You see things on film and until you actually work with somebody and you see them practice on a day-to-day basis do you really earn the respect of another player. He’s just such a hard worker and he covers so well in practice, day in day out and competes and loves to hit. He’s a credit to the profession and a great leader on our football team.”

(on if Bailey is a ‘shut down’ corner) “A lot of people think anytime a guy completes a pass on somebody, it doesn’t matter if it’s zone coverage or two-deep, they think the complete it on Champ. So you’re highly scrutinized. Regardless if he’s anywhere near the ball people always think it’s man-to-man coverage. That’s just a process of being a corner and getting a lot of money and the scrutiny that goes with it.”

(on the Broncos defense) “Anytime you don’t perform you’re going to put pressure on yourselves and say ‘hey, you’ve got to do the little things better’ and you kind of approach it day by day. Everybody’s just got to tighten it up a little bit. We’ve done some good things the first half of the season, some things we’re proud of other things we’re not, but it’s a long season and it’s how you react to adversity that counts and I think we’ve got the character to regroup and hopefully play better.”

(on depth at running back and the system the Broncos employee) “I think we’re pretty lucky to have a guy like Reuben when you lose three of your backs. After we lost Quentin (Griffin) and Mike Anderson and of course Tatum Bell went out and Garrison (Hearst) was hurt we had no choice. We only had two guys left and we were fortunate that Reuben had the ability to help us at that position. A lot of times when you get to your fullbacks, that’s what they are, fullbacks. They don’t have the ability to do both. With Mike Anderson being able to play both and Reuben being able to play both we felt like we had some depth. Unfortunately that’s not here anymore. I think we believe in what we do and when you believe in something I think the players tend to say ‘hey, we’re going to be one of the best at league at doing it.’ Regardless of the situation or regardless of how good the team is we believe we can move the football on them. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t.”

(on being frustrated at having to abandon the run in last week’s comeback effort) “That’s part of football. Other teams get paid too and if they get a big day, you get behind and you got to score. I was disappointed that we moved the ball pretty good, we had some opportunities to catch up, we just didn’t get it done.”

Broncos Quarterback Jake Plummer

(on Denver’s success running the football) “It’s just part of the system here we believe in. We have a lot of faith in those guys up front. It starts with (Tom) Nalen in the middle getting those guys in the right spot. Guys believe in the system and (are) going out on Sundays and giving it their all. We plug in some different backs, different styles. Obviously Reuben (Droughns) is a down hill kind of punishing runner and he fits this scheme well because there are gaps, there are holes, and you want a guy that’s going to be hitting it and he’s usually doing that. It’s very good. We’ve had some struggles early but we’re back to running the ball pretty well right now.”
(on how Droughns fits the system) “He fits it great. Even Quentin (Griffin) fit it well. We’ve got a lot of guys, that if you know how to run and read some blocks and find a hole and hit it, then you’re going to love playing in this system.”

(on having to pass more in a comeback effort against the Falcons) “Falling behind is never fun because it takes away part of your game plan usually. You can’t hang to the run, but we were able to move the ball in the air. But it’s one of those things. We have to try to eliminate putting ourselves in a deficit as far as the score and try to keep balance in our game plan because we know we can run the ball well pretty much against anybody.”

(on the passing game) “At times we moved the ball well throwing it, those situations … they’re not fun to be in but we continued to fight. We moved the ball well, but we’re better when we’re a balanced attack.”

(on how the team is feeling) “We’re not worried about it. Obviously we’re concerned because you don’t want to lose two games in a row and you especially don’t want to lose at home. But we know we have a hot team coming in. Houston is playing well. The guys have a lot of confidence in what they do right now. We’ve got this game we must win. We’re going into the bye week after it. We must win this one and go in with a good feeling. But our confidence is fine. We’re going to continue to work and continue to play hard. If we were playing absolutely terrible in all phases I’d be more concerned but we’re moving the ball. We’re doing some good stuff offensively, defensively and special teams we just have to eliminate a few errors here and there and we should get this thing going in the right direction again.”

(on Houston’s defense) “They’re good, they’re physical, and they’re fast. The 3-4, they’re able to do a lot of things. They bring some blitzes from some different areas. Their scheme right now is working very well. They haven’t given up many big plays lately. They’ve been holding opponents out of the end zone and creating turnovers. That’s what you want your defense to do. It’s a big challenge for us. Offensively we’re going to have to study them real hard get some good things and when we have a chance to make a big play take advantage of it.”

(on plugging in different backs into the running game) “The scheme that we run here, if the running back comes in and he’s a little different, he’s got to adjust because he’s just one guy and you’re talking about five guys, six guys up front that are used to doing something … The running back really has to know the system, know the blocks and come in there and be ready to go.”

(on receivers Rod Smith and Ashley Lelie) “Rod’s awesome. He’s unbelievable for as many years as he’s played. His leadership, his effort and the way he just conducts himself around here, he’s fun to play with. He had a great game last week its just too bad we didn’t get the win. But he’s playing at a great level right now and Ashley’s coming along and making big plays for us. Those guys are working hard and that’s what you want.”

(on plugging in different backs into the running game) “The scheme that we run here, if the running back comes in and he’s a little different, he’s got to adjust because he’s just one guy and you’re talking about five guys, six guys up front that are used to doing something … The running back really has to know the system, know the blocks and come in there and be ready to go.”


See thats why Davis has had a rough start,, its a scheme that takes practice and once ya get it down the run game is as deadly as any !!! Ok off the subject sorry anymore bronco news ????????????????????????????

Broncos' Lynch will miss Houston game
November 5, 2004

DENVER (AP) -- Denver Broncos safety John Lynch will miss Sunday's game against the Houston Texans with a broken bone above his tailbone.

``John Lynch is getting better, but we won't play him this weekend,'' coach Mike Shanahan said Friday. ``Hopefully, with the bye week and a little recovery time, he will be ready to go against New Orleans.''

Denver has its bye week Nov. 14, then plays at the Saints on Nov. 21.

Lynch was injured when he was blocked by Atlanta wide receiver Brian Finneran 30 yards from the play in last Sunday's loss to the Falcons. Finneran was the target of a verbal barrage from Lynch.

Also, running back Tatum Bell was listed as questionable for Sunday. He practiced Friday.

• Jeff Legwold's keys for the Broncos in their game Sunday against Houston:

Quote:
1 Drive the Carr. If the Broncos let Texans quarterback David Carr, below, stand and deliver, it will be another long day in Denver. Trouble is, blitzing Carr is a difficult proposition because he's the third-rated passer in the league (114.6) against this blitz this season. The Broncos front four needs its best outing of the season.

2 Throw the blanket. The Texans are athletic at wide receiver, so the Broncos defensive backs will be tested. The Falcons went after Kelly Herndon on Sunday, and Denver has to keep the Texans' three-wide look from hurting them too badly.

3 Don't be the second. The Texans have had only one 100-yard rushing game from a back this season - Jonathan Wells' 105 yards against Oakland - and the Broncos can't give up a second one. Denver has allowed a 100-yard rusher each of the past two weeks and lost both games.

4 Have another Reuben. After three 100-yard games in his first three starts, Reuben Droughns' impact was limited when the Broncos lost the lead against Atlanta. The Broncos need to pound away early at a Texans defense that allows 4.7 yards a carry.

5 Character test. This is the one. This is why the Broncos added veterans to the locker room this off-season, to rebound from the rough spots. Now is the time, because the Broncos can't afford to go into the bye week with a loss.
