The Denver secondary looked really shaky this week, granted this was just week one with a few new starters, but Carson Palmer and Chad Ochocinco did what they wanted, when they wanted. Missed tackles were numerous, a couple of blown coverages led to a couple of big plays, but fortunatley the D was able to hold up when the pressure was on, only giving up 7 points to a very potent Bengals offense. For week 2, going up against Brady Quinn and Braylon Edwards, they are going to have their work cut out for them, but I think they will hold up and have a better game all around on the defensive side, look for Champ Bailey to have a big game, and Brian Dawkins to play a bigger role with some safety blitz packages.
