The boys over at FanSided have cooked up a real scoop here: Play better defense through first three quarters. Sorry, but we’re more focused on negativity than hot takes of this ilk here at TST.
For those of you expecting the 5th-round draftee out of Oklahoma to come in and be the answer to our pass-rushing woes: McVay says Obo’s gotta earn it.

Broncos run defense looks to back bounce against Todd Gurley and the Rams | Broncos Official
I’m not sure what back-bouncing is, but I’m guessing it’s akin to bouncing back. The Donks allowed 323 on the ground last week, so if Suh thinks the Rams are ‘terrible,’ I wonder what that makes the Denver NFL team...
In his classic, gentlemanly way, Wade Phillips’ curtsies with respect to his dominant units of year’s past. The blushing is (orange) crushing. Alas, Wade’s a peach.
