A look at the 2019: Denver Broncos
We offer a review of the season 2019 of the thirty-two teams in the NFL, expectations, results, future. Today is the turn of the Denver Broncos.
The Broncos were 3-years post-the hangover of the SB 50, the loss of the franchise QB and two years of failures of management Joseph... the One that I was hoping for in the preview of August was a 8-8 for a new spring, a rebirth of a team, to find a Franchise QB and an identity tactic.
The Broncos have started BADLY. Zero win in the first four games, with three games lost at the end with a field goal, coming both from the doubtful cases of arbitration. But arbitrage in part the teams did not seem absolutely convincing from the point of view of the offensive for most of the season. Flacco has proven to not be his “First” as mentioned by John Elway during the trade, struggling so much to convert every third down, bringing the only victories against the Chargers and the Titans, among other things, without granting their points (and thus beginning the era Tannehill of Nashville). His neck injury has brought to the forefront Brandon Allen, QB backup catch in the waiver before week 1, with which the Broncos have succeeded in the incredible feat of winning against the lost the Browns and be 20 points above the Vikings before being recovered and defeated. The limits of Allen, and the recovery from the injury to his right hand has led to the debut of Drew Lock, QB from Missouri, choice number 43 of the draft, which the Broncos have managed to win on the end of the season with an incredible 4-1, losing only in a snowy Kansas City for an unexpected record of the season 7-9, not too dissimilar from 8-8 imagined at the beginning of the season.
The Defense. The defense, removed a few hiccups at the beginning of the season to the end of the season proved to be one of the best defenses in the NFL, especially in the Redzone. Care Fangio has definitely worked, despite the injury of Chubb, the defense and’ sobbarcata the team bringing it to victory on several occasions.
The trade of Emmanuel Sanders for a third and a fourth with the 49ers, and fish from the Free Agency Bausby, and AJ Johnson, and it was really a sign of good management.
Also Drew the Lock and showed a possible Franchise QB, still has to improve several things, but in week 12 in his debut and seemed mentally ready for the NFL. Removed Murray at Arizona, Lock it, and have been shown to be the best QB of the class of 2019. Honorable mention Noah Fant, the first choice of the Broncos has shown all his potential, proving to be a future TE star. Sutton, WR from TCU, has shown great things, in spite of having had to receive 3 QBs different, and without the help from mid-season for another WR level, after the trade of Sanders.
All the rest of it. The attack for those who remember the seasons 2012 and 2013 the Broncos it was a nightmare with open eyes. The Offensive Line has held up like a sponge in front of a tsunami and Flacco seemed to be as agile as the tin man from the Wizard of Oz. The playcalling seemed to be very conservative, want to limit Flacco and Allen, you want to the OL, either for the lack of a true Playmaker as receivers removed from Sutton, and the above-mentioned rookie. Freeman has disappointed as a RB, while Lindsay has barely passed 1000 yards this season.
The special team was among the worst in the league, with a punter, is below mediocrity, and ritornatori that they have done little or nothing. McManus, the Kicker, yes, you did a good job making 85% of the Field goal, but due to absence of some important from 40+ yards.
Now, from a team that at the end of the season has shown areas of remarkable growth, despite the limitations offensive. On the limits of offensive in the off-season has already started to show the possible guards with the signature of Shurmur as Offensive Coordinator, and the performance of the Lock, Sutton and Fant suggest the existence of new-old feelings for the fans of Denver.
Despite the loss of two pillars of the SB 50 as Chris Harris Junior (CB) and Derek Wolfe (DE), and the departure of All-22 Janovic, the cutting of the Joe Flacco and the arrival at the AGO of Melvin Gordon (RB) and Glasgow (OL), the trade of Bouye (CB) and Casey (DT) two absolute starter, and the signing of Shelby Harris (DT) has brought good feelings to the fans. Perhaps it is time that we return with a winning record. Only one gap remained as a WR to go alongside Sutton, in one of the draft's richest WR of 10 years. I feel that something good to 15 of the Board will come up. This could be a year from the PO... of course on the condition that the season will start.
