in win over Washington The Denver Broncos have lacked the big play over the last two seasons Youth Emmanuel Sanders Jersey , which we covered before Friday’s game in a post called “Dink and Dunk and No Chunk”. The premise obviously being that the Broncos offense could not generate any chunk yardage. That appears to be changing as they got plenty of chunk in their 29-17 victory over the Washington Redskins.The explosive offensive plays was a sigh to behold for us fans, since we just hadn’t seen much of that since Peyton Manning retired. If the offense can generate these kinds of chunk plays on a consistent week-to-week basis, then this team is going to score enough points to keep games winnable. We’ll see if that’s the case in two short weeks.

The new version states: “It is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent.”Given the broad penalty and rather vague nature of the rule, it remains to be seen just how officials are going to apply it. But there were some clarifications via a fact sheet from NFL Communications:Former Broncos defenders weigh inSteve Atwater and David Bruton, Jr. - two former Broncos safeties from different eras but both known for being big hitters - talked about the new rule and how it could impact the game.Atwater, who deserves a bust in Canton bust for his defensive prowess, noted on Orange and Blue Radio’s First and 10 show last week that he hoped refs would be lenient because “helmets are going to be involved” in tackling.“Especially if guys have their posture right and their heads are up, it’s going to happen, it’s got to happen,” Atwater said Womens Garett Bolles Jersey , noting that a player like Josey Jewell “who flies to the ball” could get a penalty. “He could get penalized some because he’s going full speed to the ball.”Bruton Jr., a former Broncos safety, team captain and special teams ace also known for flying to the ball and part of the Super Bowl 50 Championship team, told Mile High Report he believes the onus for safe play should come more from the players rather having it legislated by refs on the field.“Honestly, the decision falls on the player on how he wants to play,” Bruton said, recalling his practices in Denver where the DBs spent a lot of time learning to “wrap and roll” when tackling. “You want good contact, your head up, your eyes up, definitely not the top of the helmet. And then you hit and roll to eliminate the impact as well as take away their ability to power through you.”Players taking that kind of responsibility to play the game right and protect their own health is where Bruton believes the emphasis should go. He’d like to see the league spend more resources educating players not only about the risks involved but also about care for their health during and after their pro careers.And as a player who ultimately left the game to protect his own health after suffering his sixth concussion, Bruton knows how crucial it is for players to think about their health.“Football is football. It’s a violent game and players need to realize the risks themselves and weigh the risk versus reward,” Bruton said.But, like Atwater, Bruton doesn’t want football to be fundamentally changed or the game to continue favoring the offense by mostly penalizing the defense.“Everybody has heard ‘tackle with your head up’ since PeeWee days. The NFL can only do so much,” Bruton reiterate.
