    Woodyard Named AFC Player of the Week

    http://predominantlyorange.com/2012/...nsided_uppprev
    For the second time this season, a Denver Broncos defensive player was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

    Linebacker Wesley Woodyard almost made the game look too easy with his 13 tackles, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, 1 sack, and 2 deflected passes against the New Orleans Saints in week 8.

    The bye week certainly helped the entire defense regroup, and there was no bigger beneficiary than Woodyard.

    “We were able to get fresh,” Woodyard said after the game. “We were able to get back, sit down, and work on the mistakes that we made in the first six weeks.”

    Woodyard gave credit to his defensive line which “clicked,” and gave him the chance to move around making plays.

    The six year linebacker undrafted out of Kentucky has been filling in for suspended linebacker D.J. Williams. Woodyard leads the team with 61 tackles through 7 games. He also has 3 sacks, 2 interceptions, and a forced fumble.
    The last time a Broncos linebacker had multiple interceptions in one season was in 2004 when Al Wilson did it.

    Woodyard joins Tracy Porter in player of the week honors this season. Porter got the honor after his week one performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers which was highlighted by his pick-6 to seal the game.

    Woodyard is in the lineup to stay even when Williams returns. Talk about making the most of an opportunity. It couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Williams is just the second Denver Bronco to be named team captain in his first five seasons in the league.

    I am glad to hear this. Woodyard is a great player and its the reason that I like him so much. I may be a bit too strong into him but he truly is a defensive stud.

    I think Woodyard should be our full time weak side LB. Once Williams returns, they should move him back to the middle. Can rotate with Brooking.

    This.
    We then turn what was one of our biggest weaknesses earlier in the season into a relative strength.

    Woodyard is a straight up baller. The kid is all over the field and has in incredible sideline to sideline speed. His instincts are getting better and better.

    I honestly like Von pass rushing most of the game with Woodyard, Keith (DJ), and trevathan playing LB. But i think the Nickel is our best formation...with trevathan and woodyard providing speed at LB and having Chris Harris in instead of one of our garbage MLBs is a big plus.

    Have always liked Woodward. Plays bigger than he is. Trevathan reminds me of him a lot.

    Trevathan looked pretty good on a side note!

    Trevathan has the potential to be far better in coverage than woody, but it remains to be seen if he can consistently be around the ball like woody is. Trevathan is almost glued to the guy he is covering. Its really impressive to see his coverage skilss... espescially being a rookie linebacker.
