Doesn't it seem like all our young and even experienced players have raised their level of play significantly?
We've all thought highly of a guy like say Woodyard, but he's become an animal out there (almost borderline out of control). Miller has taken the step we've needed him to take. Young guys like Moore and even Ayers are playing well and steady, something that just wasn't true last year and in Ayers case ever.
We've had young guys step up in the secondary before, but they always seemed to get picked apart, now guys like Chris Harris just aren't giving up any ground to anybody. I would even say the secondary has been the strength of the team (but maybe it's just Miller scaring teams away from 7 step drops).
I don't know, but I think Del Rio across the board has had an incredibly positive influence on not just the play of the players, but their growth as well. Hate to imagine if he gets a head coaching job next year (which seems pretty likely) and where we go from there, but a fairly underrated move by Elway/Fox that has paid of tremendously this year.
