Mon, 06 Jul 2009 08:13:45 -0700

Tom Robinson, of The Virginian-Pilot, reports San Francisco 49ers CB Dre' Bly said he was blamed for the struggles his former team, the Denver Broncos, had on defense last season. "I was made the scapegoat," Bly said. "Especially on the other side of Champ (Bailey), you're gonna take (criticism). But I don't care who you are, if you don't have a pass rush and you're not aggressive on defense, they're gonna catch a ball … We weren't aggressive last year in Denver. We let people take the fight to us. We were so predictable on defense. I don't make no excuses; none of us played well in the system ... People are going to question my ability, saying I'm not this, I'm not that, that's fine. I use all that for motivation."
