Bill Kollar teaches his players to get their hands up if they can't get to the QB. No one does that better and is more disruptive than Shelby Harris
Fortune favors the bold. Yes, the Vikings' bold QB moves in recent years didn't get them over the hump. But the moves made by a front office that included new Broncos GM George Paton allowed them to boast the NFL's fourth-highest passer rating over the last five seasons.
George Paton might be perfectly perched at the intersection of time-tested methods and modern innovation.

"He's only played so many amount of games. He's going to get it, it's going to click for him, and we need it to click for him," Gordon said.
When you consider Shelby Harris' professional journey before he became a Bronco in January 2017, you can see why he would want stay with the team.
Some might say that Jeudy should forget the worst game he's ever had. But remembering it could make it a powerful motivator.
Drops have been an issue, but experience has shown Vic Fangio that K.J. Hamler and Jerry Jeudy can fix that glitch.
The next sack Bolles allows will be his first of the season. That alone should have earned him a Pro Bowl nod.
