Default Broncos Country! Winning

Good morning Bradley Chubb Broncos Jersey ,football games is hard. The Denver Broncos are learning how much harder it is with an incompetent coaching staff and a bad quarterback. Case Keenum let the air out of Mile High on more than one occasion against the Cleveland Browns. And at the end, a lack of confidence in Orton-lite caused the coaches to make a series of cowardly play calls. The one big takeaway from the Broncos loss to the Browns is that Joseph and his staff, and Keenum shrank in the biggest moments. It isn’t just time for the Vance Joseph era to end, but he can take Keenum with him. As Ian St. Clair and I discussed on the MHR Radio podcast after the 17-16 loss, this combination is orange sherbet and sardines. Gross. The worst part in all this is how much Broncos history was made. Von Miller passed Simon Fletcher for all-time sack leader in franchise history. And the Broncos lost to the Browns for the first time since 1990. Bradley Chubb inched closer to the rookie sack record, and the Broncos inched closer to their second consecutive losing season, a feat not accomplished since 1972. The game was supposed to be a highlight of the young players in the league. A Future’s game, as I called it in my preview article. And it was. Rookies and young players were on display all over the field. It was sloppy, with too many penalties to count (someone else can count them). The Browns bottled up Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman, daring Keenum to beat them. He didn’t.Baker Mayfield got the win for the Browns, but he wasn’t exactly lights out. He had his issues as well. Even though many in Broncos Country pine for a quarterback with his future, myself included, he still has a long way to go before he is a superstar in the league.There were a couple defining moments in the game. Key plays that tell you all you need to know about the Denver Broncos in 2018. The first came after Von Miller’s record breaking sack. As the stadium continued to celebrate Von Miller’s record breaking sack, Case Keenum did what Case Keenum does. The first play after the punt he throws off his back foot, under pressure, into the waiting arms of the Browns TJ Carrie. The feeling wasn’t of air escaping Mile High. It wasn’t a bursting balloon. It was the sad realization that this was exactly what we all should have expected. No one should have been shocked to watch Keenum float a ball harmlessly into the arms of a player wearing the wrong colored jersey. And that sadness shifted for many into anger. We have been fooled time and again this season. If the loss to the 49ers was a cold shower on Broncos Country’s playoff hopes, that interception was your little brother flushing the toilet while you were showering. You knew it was coming, you just hoped you could get away without too much shrinkage.The second defining moment was the play calling as Denver moved into scoring position at the end of the game. With a broken and battered secondary, a defense that was tired and light on man power, Bill Musgrave shrank. Perhaps it was his lack of confidence in Keenum, but from the 8 yard line, Denver ran the ball three times. Phillip Lindsay, Phillip Lindsay, Phillip Lindsay - field goal? Really? Down by four, and you play for three? The laughter you may have heard came from all the fans who just didn’t want to cry.The Broncos needed a touchdown right there. No question about it, the defense had left everything they had out on the field. They gave up 17 points. That was all. It was a number that most in Broncos Country would have been happy to see. But instead of lifting the defense up, after they had held the offense up all game, Joseph and Musgrave, shrank in the moment Von Miller Jersey White , and kicked a meaningless field goal.

Good morning, Broncos Country!It’s a great week in the Mile High City as John Elway has nearly finalized his overhaul of the Broncos’ coaching staff after sealing the deal on Wednesday with Rich Scangarello, former 49ers quarterbacks coach, to be the Broncos’ new offensive coordinator.Combined with new offensive line coach Mike Munchak (and hopefully current running backs coach Curtis Modkins, there is renewed hope in Broncos Country that the Denver offense can be exciting again.Or at least interesting - and hopefully effective.While Hall-of-Famer Munchak has proved his mettle as an O-line coach, having recently coached perhaps the best offensive line in the league at Pittsburgh, Scangarello comes in with no experience as a coordinator at the NFL level Royce Freeman Jersey , but plenty from college.And that’s probably why he was so enticing to Elway and new head coach Vic Fangio.Scangarello’s success with four different quarterbacks - three of whom were patchwork backups - in the past two seasons at the Niners was impressive, but what should impress Broncos fans is something only a good story can tell.Matt Barrows, now covering the Niners for The Athletic, told that story in a 2017 Sacramento Bee article about the QB coach, who while coaching at UC Davis in 2009 was hired by the Raiders to work with their quarterbacks:Scangarello told Barrows that he knew he’d really need to work with Shanahan to fully grasp the concept, so when a position that didn’t even really have a title came open under Shanahan at the Falcons, Scangarello grabbed it.And having worked closely with Shanahan at the Falcons, Scangarello learned that evaluating quarterbacks to thrive in their complex system was going to have to go beyond just arm power. It was going to take a quarterback who could process things quickly because that’s what the pro game required. And no doubt, part of Scangarello’s success with Nick Mullens when Jimmy Garoppolo and then CJ Beathard went down with injuries had actually started months before when evaluating the Southern Miss quarterback during the pre-draft process.While the 2019 quarterback for the Broncos may still be in question, it seems obvious Elway has picked a new offensive coordinator who can help him do a much better job evaluating young talent and ultimately developing a quarterback of the future.Horse Tracks - docllv’s pick of the day49ers: QBs coach took lowly job so he could learn from Kyle Shanahan | The Sacramento Bee“I would say the one thing I could truly appreciate beyond anything with coach Shanahan is that he’s trying to score on every single play he calls,” Scangarello said. “And I never thought that way as a play caller in the pass game. Sometimes I was thinking more about staying on schedule. And he was always thinking, ‘How can we attack the defense and create explosive (plays)?’ It really changed my mindset for the better.”Horse TracksWhy the Broncos hired Rich Scangarello as their offensive coordinator – The AthleticThe Broncos appointed a trusted assistant of Kyle Shanahan's who has only four years of NFL coaching experience to lead their offense.
