  1. Broncos fire OC Rich Scangarello

    Blasphemy. If it’s not direct lineage from Mike S, via bloodline, it’s unacceptable!

    such as....?

    Absolutely agree with this.

    Last year, the issue was Eli, and again the Horrific OL. Was a Flacco situation on steroids. Not only could Eli not move, but he very clearly didn’t even want to get hit. Trigger Happy doesn’t even begin to describe it.

    Also, Jones just doesn’t have the arm that Locke has, and he fumbled like crazy. If you look at the QB’s Shurmer has had to work with (had had a fair amount of success with), no doubt Locke is the most physically gifted. Will be interesting to see what he’s able to do with him.

    Live in NY these days, so saw way more of the Giants than I’d like... The Giants offense was not great, but - their OL was quite literally abysmal. Made the Broncos OL look like all pros in comparison. And they had NO weapons at WR after trading OBJ (Cody Latimer and Bennie Fowler were mainstays 😳). And the defense was a complete sieve. They were always playing from behind. The biggest complaint from the NY fandom was not giving Barkley enough touches, but appears that Barkley was struggling through some nagging injuries, so may have been mitigating circumstances. if I were Vic, at his age, with one chance to make it as a HC - zero doubt in my mind I would have jumped at the opportunity to bring Shurmer on board.

    Broncos upgraded, plain and simple

    This is certainly a bit of a shock. But anyone saying Shurmer is a downgrade from Scags is letting their emotions get the better of them. The only downside to this is the lack of continuity - ie, a short term hit for Locke to go through the learning curve. So to say this is “win now” also doesn’t make much sense. Shurmer was a bad HC. He was a very good OC, and an extremely good QB developer. Loved Scags scheme, but he really struggled with consistent play calling. Can’t think of a single game all year where he put a whole game together. Last but not least, anybody looking at what KC did today and saying they DONT want a coach who has PROVEN success with the same scheme - well, I don’t understand that criticism. I wish Scags well. Liked him. But this is most definitely an improvement to the Broncos coaching staff.
  9. Week 9 GDT: Browns @ Broncos

    Mobility at the QB position is such an essential part of this offense. It’s but to have a mobile, but otherwise inexperienced QB than the Joe Flacco statue back there. To be clear, not claiming Allen is anything but a temporary diversion on the way to wherever we end up at QB, but his play today did highlight 1) the potential of this offense, and 2) the critical importance of mobility at the QB position in this offense.

    We have a long way to go, but we really do have some nice talent to build around. If we had 2 OT and a QB (and perhaps a # 2 receiver), we’d be very competitive.

    Btw, watching the Seahawks game while I’m watching the a Broncos at the bar. Met calf is a BEAST
  12. Week 9 GDT: Browns @ Broncos

    And THAT is how you attack a 9 man Box. Fant with the Monster catch and run for a TD!
  13. Week 9 GDT: Browns @ Broncos

    They’re stacking the box, and our OL still can’t Pass Protect. Same old same old....
  14. Week 9 GDT: Browns @ Broncos

    WHAT.A.CATCH! Sutton has arrived gentlemen
  15. Week 8 - Denver Broncos (2-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (4-2)

    I will caveat that by saying I am in no way shape or form an OL expert. But I know an athlete when I see one - and Wirfs is as fluid and mobile as they come. Plays within himself, knows what to do, stays in control - everything you would want except for that mauling finish in the run game.
