players out there.Let's get to this week's Broncos rookie report card. The Browns tried to pick on Surtain, targeting him six times as the primary man in coverage but the rookie relinquished just one completion to Case Keenum for a single, solitary yard. However, Surtain did have some i sues pop up again with his play against the run, which shouldn't be an i sue with how physical he is as a player. against the run and in rushing the pa ser. He turned in a far better performance than the starter Malik Reed, by far, and had a much tougher matchup for most of the game. In addition, Cooper showed the ability to win pa s rush matches quickly instead of relying on coverage to get a sack or pre sure as is Reed's M.O.Williams should be the top running back from Shohei Ohtani Jersey
now on. While he has his fair share of faults, his physical running style to break tackles is a difference-maker, and the starter Melvin Gordon isn't displaying that attribute. When Williams makes a bad read, he can power through, but when Gordon does, he doesn't have the burst or power anymore to make up for it and gets stood up and tackled quickly.However, one rookie ended up seeing , thanks to an injury above him, and it was clear he wasn't ready. When newly-minted starting linebacker Micah Kiser went down, the team had to Cameron Maybin Jersey

He is supposedly coaching for his job, but his trust in struggling veterans and refusal to play rookies unle s nece sary is hurting this team.During this mini-bye week, Fangio needs to look in the mirror, swallow his pride, and make the nece sary Blake Parker Jersey
changes, even if it causes some pain among the veteran collective.
