A Different Denver Defense

I'm not sure how many of you watched last nights thrilling Denver-Pittsburgh game, but damn. That was a different Denver team than the one that lost its preceding three games.

Lost amongst the accompanying hoopla that comes with playing on a Sunday night on NBC was the fact that the Broncos completely junked Jim Bates defense. (Scroll way down) They spent the bye week reinstalling the defense they ran last year (You know, the one that cost the last defensive coordinator his job...?) and abandoning Bates' scheme due to a lack of proper personnel.  Also of note, the Broncos ran a lot of Tampa-2, something they hadn't shown up until now. Oh, and guess what defense the Packers have had major problems with the past two games? Whatever the case, the Broncos look revitalized on the defensive side of the ball.

The Monday night date against the Broncos just got a whole lot more worrisome...

Tampa 2 = The defense the Steelers used in the 70's.

And look at our personnel,
