There's a lot of good happening with this team, but there's the potential for some ugly if they're not careful. And, if Holliday ever flips the ball again prior to crossing the endzone, they should scissor kick him in the head - that could have been a big mistake.
There are lots of reasons to think Denver won't go far in the playoffs. McGahee's fumbling definitely one of them.
I don't think anyone realistically thinks the Denver O has arrived yet, or the Denver D.
But they are progressing.
Will be interesting to see how/if DJ Williams is integrated back into this new-look D lineup.
