The running theme of the offseason

was whether or not Vance Joseph and his coaching staff could improve from their poor performance in 2017. After the first four weeks of the season Womens Courtland Sutton Jersey , the short answer has to be no. When the Denver Broncos lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football, it wasn’t the blowout some expected, but there was only one glaring issue.As Ian St. Clair and I discussed on the postgame recap, Vance Joseph and his staff seem unprepared for NFL action. Joe Woods continually puts the defense in the wrong scheme. Bill Musgrave forgets he has a legit one-two punch at running back. It is a disgrace to watch this staff ruin this talented group.Sure, we could talk about Keenum missing Demaryius Thomas for an easy touchdown at the end of the game. And we could bemoan his accuracy issues. We could discuss how Brandon Marshall continues to be a liability in coverage, or the lack of depth in the secondary. But none of that mattered.In truth, the Broncos went into their matchup with Kansas City looking like a team that was going to have 50 points scored on them. It was a legitimate concern for this writer. However, the defense was able to hold one of the highest scoring offenses in the league to just 27 points. Just imagine what the score would have looked like if the coaches knew what plays to call.No. The one big takeaway from this four-point loss is all about the inability of the coaching staff to put their players in a position to succeed. On the offensive side of the ball, how can anyone think not handing the ball to Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay all day was a good idea. Freeman had 8 carries for 67 yards and a touchdown. That’s 8.4 yards per carry! Am I missing something? Lindsay carried the ball 12 times for 69 yards and a score. Surely I’m not the only one noticing this, right?How can Bill Musgrave not notice his stud rookies averaging 6.8 yards per carry? Is it stubbornness? Stupidity? A lack of football knowledge? If I saw it, he must have seen it.Let’s not forget the pitiful decisions made by Joe Woods down the stretch. The defense scratched and clawed all game, overcoming pitiful offensive series after series. Even still, Joe Woods figured out a way to allow the Chiefs to go from 2nd and forever to getting a first down. Booger McFarland of the ESPN broadcast saw it, questioning why they were in man to man. Surely Joe Woods understands, right? He understands on 3rd and extra long at the end of the game you play off, and don’t allow a scrambling Mahomes to make things happen, right?And did he not notice that Patrick Mahomes was better when he was flushed outside the pocket? Perhaps a little more contain on the kid that seems to love school yard plays more than anything? My confusion just continued to grow throughout the game. No adjustments were made. No changes to try and eliminate big plays. Just relying on the talents of the players.Don’t get me wrong. Football is played by players, but isn’t the job of the coaching staff to prepare the team? Isn’t it their job to put the players in the best possible position to win? And it wasn’t like Andy Reid outcoached anyone. Vance Joseph et al. just couldn’t make the right call. The real concern is how simple it seemed to be for everyone else Womens Von Miller Jersey , and how difficult it was for the Broncos coaches.This is an indictment of the head coach, but it does not excuse the offensive and defensive coordinators.

Is it Joe Flacco’s job to mentor Drew Lock?The first OTA practice of the year is always a place for boundless optimism and interest in the dry part of the offseason between the draft and training camp. This is especially true with a new coaching staff installing systems on both sides of the ball. Of course, all this interest can be turned into a bit of a distraction when the imported veteran quarterback says it isn’t his role to mentor the young gun, the potential franchise guy that many in Broncos Country have pinned hopes and dreams on. Even amid all of the excitement Monday, the national media caught wind of the comments by Joe Flacco and did its best to make it the story of the day. Take this report from Rotoworld - with which Orange and Blue 760’s Ryan Edwards took issue:Or this article by NFL Wire’s Doug Farrar, who lamented the fact that Flacco would not willingly serve as a mentor to Drew Lock as Alex Smith did for Patrick Mahomes when both were with the Kansas City Chiefs. Never mind the fact that Ben Roethlisberger, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre, and a number of other quarterbacks have all been far from welcoming to perceived threats in recent NFL history. Or the fact that Flacco’s comments were preceded by almost the exact same view from the Broncos head coach Vic Fangio:Sure, it would be nice if Flacco helps Lock adapt to the NFL game. In fact, I’d be willing to bet he’ll do just that as the year moves along. All you have to do is look at how he handled the situation with Lamar Jackson in Baltimore last year to know Flacco was a resource for his replacement.Other members of the Ravens made it pretty clear the veteran was hardly freezing out the heir apparent.If that doesn’t paint a picture, keep in mind that Flacco had an opportunity to tell the world “I told you so” following the Ravens 23-17 loss to the Chargers last January. If you’ll remember https://www.broncoslockerroom.com/authentic-von-miller-jersey , Jackson had minus-2 net passing yards until 13 minutes remained in the game. He was so inept, Tony Romo and the home crowd were actively chanting for Flacco to come off the bench and try to save the day. He could have buried the rookie, but instead, the veteran took the high road.So don’t tell me how Flacco focusing on himself is hurting the team. The best possible long-term strategy for the Broncos is if the 34-year old plays well for 16(+?) games in 2019 and Drew Lock has the opportunity to sit, learn and take the time to refine his mechanics away from the live fire. The only way that happens is if this Denver team wins games, and the only way they do that is if the signal caller is completely focused on taking control of his football team.
