  • Javonte Willams appreciation thread

    This dude is fun to watch because he doesn’t go down easily. He’s doing the same thing he did in college which is breaking tackles. Always going forward. I know Phillip was a fan favorite but I’ll take Williams.

    guy has exceptional balance. if our O-line can get some things ironed out, Gordon/ Williams is a really fun 1-2 punch

      I rarely buy a rookie jersey, but I'd look a new one to wear to the Jets game this weekend and have leaning toward #33. He seeks contact the way TD used to

        He can run behind Foneco.

          This run represents the nasty.

            The kid is a beast. I want to see him get more touches.

                He will be a very good player. I was glad the Broncos moved up to get him. His contact balance and power were easily among the best I've seen from a running back coming out of school in the past 15 years or so taking the draft seriously. Denver needs to get the ground game going. Unfortunately, the interior OL of the Broncos, particularly Risner and Cushenberry, absolutely suck at dealing with DE/DT power up front. Time to start utilizing TEs in the backfield with motion or as blockers to help because they can't do shit right now and have been dog shit running out of 11 personnel to start the year.

                  He has a excellent combination of balance, lower body strength and vision. And he'll only get better. Huge Lindsay fan, but he's already an upgrade.

                    Absolutely loved the pick. He's a stud. Also, kudos to coach Modkins. He may be our best RB coach since Bobby Turner.

                        He is exactly the kind of back we need in the 4th quarter when we are holding a lead. Let Gordon get most of the touches in the first 3 quarters, then let Williams come in as the hammer to close it out in the 4th.

                          His power and balance is unbelievable. He was going down, two inches from the ground , stuck his hand in the ground and dragged 2 defenders another 3 yards after he put his hand on the ground.

                          Made NFLN top 3 angry runs.

                              I was reading the power rankings. This guy is an Idiot. The broncos are doing what they need to do with the running game ?? ? This shows he has not watched a Broncos game. Our running game has been the biggest let down this season. Followed by our O-line. I really thought this was the year that we would all be talking about how great our line was.

                              Current ranking: 21

                              Last week: 26

                              The Broncos are doing what they need to do with running game and defense, too, to support Teddy Bridgewater, who's making the plays that are available to his latest batch of diverse playmakers. They just need a more impressive resume than the dysfunctional Giants and Jaguars back to back.

                                You left off the part "to support Teddy Bridgewater" which completely changes the context of what you are saying.

                                The running game has not been great, and the blocking has been an issue. But the running game has come through on occasion, which has supported the offense and TB.

                                  Completely disagree. We are using the pass game to set up the running game. So if it were written correctly they would say the broncos are using the passing game and the defense to control the game. I like both of our backs but without our pass game this year I think they would be the worst in the league .

                                    Hard to be among the league leaders in TOP without any type of run game. I don’t expect massive amounts of run plays when Teddys strengths are short to medium parts of the field. More defenders up front(which is why they’ve thrown downfield more than I thought they would). Where the run game has struggled is on 1st downs. Just bottled up slow developing type runs. We all know Teddy isn’t taking the ball on those RPO type handoffs. They are slow to get off. So defenders just key in on the RB every time. But those same plays when it’s play action have been successful in players getting open and Teddy is seeing where that happens.

                                    I think it’s OK for now cause the TOP severely leans to denver both games.

                                        I read more than 1 draft publication that said Williams closest comparison was Nick Chubb.

                                      This is nice play calling by Shurmur. They show possible pass with 11 personnel, but run against what I would assume is the Jags nickel defense. Williams does the rest.

                                        Well yeah, without an effective passing game pretty much every team would be terrible. Maybe except the Ravens.

                                          Easily the most talented runner the Broncos have drafted since Portis. Will have a great career full of insane highlights if he can stay healthy.

                                          Renck saying the same thing about the run game. Both games it was crowded up front.

                                            I wouldn't call it functional. It's certainly not good enough to win long-term unless you think Teddy is going to keep up a historic pace. Anyone can manipulate numbers to serve a narrative. That's easy.

                                            If you take out Gordon's run and Denver's averaging just ~ 3.6 yards per carry. It's 4.5 YPC with it figured in. Risner and Glasgow have struggled with power on the inside. They are struggling to run in 3 WR sets (11 personnel), but doing a bit better than last year in 12 personnel.

                                            It certainly has room to improve, but Risner and Cushenberry had their hands full the past two games. They have got to do better and Denver should utilize one of their TEs like an H-Back to help spring the run game with blocking or motion. Everything between LG/C or RG/C for the most part is getting punched down immediately.

                                              No doubt room for improvement. It’s just cool to me how the TOP has been heavily favored to Denver both games. Usually that means a big run game but not the case here. It’s magnifying Teddys comp rate. I think the run game will improve, they haven’t had to rely on it so far but it will be crucial down the road.
