In a “this coach ain’t messing around” kind of way.For example, when Mason asked Cravens if he thought the current defensive scheme fit his style for coverage better, Cravens noted that “you ain’t got no choice but to cover” in this defense.Listen to "5-20-19 Su'a Cravens on 1st & 10" on Spreaker.But it’s not because in the defensive scheme for the previous regime there was a choice to cover or not, it’s because under the Vic Fangio regime, players will get called out for not doing their expected jobs - in front of everyone.“We watch film as a team, so if you can’t cover, you gettin’ exposed,” Cravens said. “The whole team is gonna know. It makes you focus in, so those things don’t happen.”How about that? Actual accountability - not just a t-shirt slogan.And when the crew asked Cravens if some of Brandon Marshall’s recent comments to The Athletic had some truth to them, the safety didn’t think it was quite as discombobulated among the linebackers and secondary as Marshall made it out to be, but he still emphasized the difference in coaching strategies.“It’s no-nonsense. No jokin’ around. We are locked in. It feels like it’s already in training camp,” Cravens said. “The coaching staff made it clear that they’re going to be real transparent and they’re here to do one thing - win games.”Cravens added that he’s been playing “95 percent safety” so far, which he really likes. “Safety is what I do. If there is one thing I know how to do, it is tackle and play safety,” he added.Cravens noted that part of his frustration during last season wasn’t just his lack of playing time but what he considered bad choices by the coaches for who would play.“I was more frustrated because it was not even about the best player. It was more about preference...I had to bite my tongue not speak my mind when Lord knows I wanted to,” Cravens said, adding that Atwater had to“grab me a couple of times” and tell him to relax. “We were losing games we should have been winning with talent that was not even on the field. I’m not just talking about myself. There were five to six guys on offense and defense who just should not have been playing. From a player’s standpoint it was very frustrating.” But some of that frustration could have been just sour grapes over being deactivated at the end of the season. Either way, the good thing is Cravens knows he can’t be about complaining this season if he wants to see the field.“This year I’m not worrying about none of that,” he said. “I’m just trying not to step on coach’s toes.”Accountability.“One thing is clear, it’s no nonsense. A lot more serious. A lot more locked in. Everybody’s going to get their fair shot and everybody’s going to get their opportunity to show what they can do,” Cravens added.“They’ll pick and choose who they want, but so far so good.” On the MHR Radio Podcast, Ian and I asked this pretty gross question."

I have one more “Would you rather” for you. If you listened to Ian St. Clair and I go through these on the MHR Radio Podcast (ApplePodcasts, Spotify Todd Davis Jersey , and Stitcher) then you know sometimes they are fun, and sometimes they make you want to hurl.Of course, on the podcast we made the rule you have to pick a side. That’s not always the most palatable way to play, but it forces you to pick a side. As we played the game, we eventually got to a question that even now makes me want to close my eyes as I drive into a ravine. The Broncos have two main division rivals, and neither of them have found ultimate success in a long time, so (brace yourself) ...Would you rather the Kansas City Chiefs or the Oakland Raiders make it to the Super Bowl? We couldn’t go as far as to give them a win, but simply having to watch one of them play on the last NFL Sunday would ruin that for many of us.The Chiefs have technically only won one Super Bowl, in 1970. They have also never won the trophy named for their owner. The AFC Championship winner receives the Lamar Hunt Trophy. Their championship drought has been a nice arrow to have in the quiver of inter-division rival trash talking.The Raiders last won a Super bowl in 1983. They most recently lost in the Super Bowl to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002. For old school Broncos fans, the Raiders are the most hated rival. Raider Week is circled on everyone’s calendar, and who can forget Mike Shanahan’s desire to destroy the team that shafted him every chance he got.In recent years, the Chiefs have won the division three years running. Oakland looked like a potential contender and then traded away all its best players. The Chiefs are the obvious choice for which team is closest to making a run at the Super Bowl. Still, the Raiders are the most hated rival, which makes answering the question a tricky proposition.When asking Ian, though, his answer was immediate, “Raiders. It’s not even close.” I was shocked at the speed of the answer, but not surprised. Yeah, either is gross, but if you know your NFL history, there is something quite pleasing about a hated rival failing to win a trophy that was named after their owner. As much as I hate the Raiders, I had to agree. The Raiders will always be the most hated rival. Watching them falter at every turn is a pleasure for all Broncos Country. However, seeing a team fail to bring home the trophy named for their owner is just too funny to let go. What do you think? Which team would you rather see make it to the Super Bowl. Vote, and then let us know what you think in the comments.Pat Bowlen Tribute As Broncos Country gathers to remember Pat Bowlen at Broncos Stadium at Mile High from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. MT today, Ian and I paid tribute to Mr. B with a special podcast (ApplePodcasts, Spotify, and Stitcher).MHR Radio is now on ApplePodcasts, Google Play, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher,TuneIn and anywhere else you get your podcasts.
