    #87 Jersey

    A top 5 defensive player on an already bad defense done for the year? Oh no, so sad.

    LET US AT THEM!

    Too bad for DEN. Wonder how long it will take him to get back on the field and to the level he was at.

    Rough season for Miller. I wish him a speedy, and complete, recovery.

    The team did - but the defense definitely performed better with him in there.

    Yeah, but they played Baltimore (absolutely no offense and they still scored 27 points), Giants (turnover machine and mediocre offense), Oakland (enough said), Philly (with Vick who was benched), Dallas (needed to score 51 points to win because they gave up 48 points), and Jacksonville (enough said again). So they only faced one good offense without Miller and they couldn't stop a cold in that game.

    We are talking about the playoffs now. The Broncos will be facing much better teams without Miller this time than they did last time. Also, the Broncos' offense has been showing signs of weakness recently. The Pats and Chargers slowed their offense and the Texans kept their offense out of the end zone for 2 1/2 quarters.

    Not saying that losing Miller is the death of the Broncos, but saying that they did just fine without Miller is misleading. They did just fine against Flacco, Vick, Terrell Pryor, Eli, and Chad Henne. Not exactly a murder's row of QBs (at least based on this year's production). Romo ate them alive. The Broncos are going to have to beat QBs like Luck, Dalton, Brady, Alex Smith, Russell Wilson, or Drew Brees to win a Super Bowl. Most of those guys are significantly better than the QBs they beat while they were without Miller the last time around.

    BTW, I want to see the Broncos to collapse in the playoffs, but because Manning chokes and not significant injuries.

    tough break

    can't shed too many tears, after Wilfork, Mayo, Gronk, murderer, Kelly, Vollmer, maybe Solder, maybe McCourty, maybe Vereen...

    and on and on it goes...

    Tough break but I wont shed any tears after the injuries we have suffered

    Miller was the one guy giving us trouble in that game defensively. take him away and if we meet again...should be more time in the pocket for brady to pick them apart

    I'll be a little shocked if they win a playoff game.

    Hate to see anyone get hurt and I wish him a full recovery.

    People should not forget that what he did to get suspended was an egregious violation of the drug testing policy. He got off way too light as far as his suspension was concerned and has absolutely skated in the court of public opinion for reasons I will never understand.

    The way things are setting up, denver may end up playing KC, which would be a tough match up for the doncos.

    I agree 100%. Perhaps most did not read what he did to get suspended then have to appeal to get it reduced to six games.
