Rookie linebacker Bradley Chubb receives high praise from Pro Football

Focus Pro Football Focus’s Mike Renner joined Orange and Blue 760 on Wednesday to discuss all things Broncos with the 1st and 10 crew. One topic they touched on was the grades given to the Broncos rookies , specifically Bradley Chubb. The Broncos fifth overall pick has yet to total a full sack(currently has a half sack) but he has been impressive for the Broncos through two games.Chubb has 8 total pressures so far which leads all rookie defenders and has a 75.6 pass rush grade which 4th amongst all rookie defenders. However, according to Pro Football Focus, Chubb has been at his best in the run game.The stat here that stood out to me was the number of snaps Chubb has played so far. I expected to see backups Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray to spell him a bit throughout the year, but thus far Cheap Von Miller Jersey , Chubb has been the unquestioned starter next to Von Miller.The matchup this week is good for Chubb and the Broncos pass rushers. Flacco is more of a pocket quarterback who is looking for that deep ball. This should allow the Broncos pass rushers to get after Flacco and make his life miserable much as they did with Russell Wilson week one.We didn’t see this sort of pressure last week against the Raiders, but that is because Derek Carr was working the quick passing game. Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. was asked about this and he explained the differences between Carr and Flacco.Longer developing plays play right into the Broncos hands. I could see them having another 5+ sack game against Flacco and the struggling Ravens offensive line. Would be nice to see Chubb get his first-career full sack in this one as well.Emmanuel Sanders on Kyle Fuller: ‘I guess I have a son’ The Denver Broncos concluded their two joint practice sessions with the Chicago Bears on Thursday and one player had a lot of fun at the expense of another. That player was Emmanuel Sanders.He reportedly abused cornerback Kyle Fuller over and over again on Wednesday and on Thursday. Someone said Fuller had a new dad and Sanders definitely heard them say it.“Y’all saw the film,” Sanders said on if he won the individual battles against Fuller. “Somebody said he was my son, so I guess I have a son (laughing).”You don’t get many ‘Who’s your daddy’ jokes in the NFL Cheap Matt Paradis Jersey , so I would expect Fuller to be ready to pop Sanders in the mouth on Saturday - preseason game or not. That said, Sanders is enjoying the ride.When asked what his son Princeton felt about Sander’s having another son he laughed saying, “He wants a brother anyways.”There is definitely going to be some salt on the field between these two. Hopefully it stays fun and in jest, but I wouldn’t count on it.
