"The Broncos Can't Throw Deep"



is exactly what we want opposing teams to think.

I'm seeing the silver lining here but since McD is known for his preparation he would have to know that other teams may be watching him just as closely. So when you play a game if you feel that you don't have to use something (deep passes) to win then why do it?

I was disappointed at the lack of play action in the beginning of the season but last week the first play was PA. It wasn't that McD didn't think we could run it, we just didn't need to.

I think the last two games were where I saw the most commitment to the short passes. Call it a lack of confidence in the deep ball or a strong confidence in the short game. McD thought we could win using the underneath stuff (also give credit to Reed, Polo...) and even though it didn't work we still have yet to show our deep play tendencies.

It's nice to have a team spend time focusing on things you wont do. McD knows that every play is going on film and will be accounted for so you have to think a little bit forward and see when different play calls may be the most effective.

Would we have scored more TDs by throwing the ball deep with a new offense? Or would it make more sense to wait for the relationships and timing to develop and start using it after teams have taken it for granted.

So now that we have some very important games where TDs are going to be huge maybe we will see some double moves from our WRs and Orton proving that he can actually throw the ball (accurately) 25+ yards.

Painfully optimistic? I don't doubt it but I also won't doubt McD and his plan to rule the NFL
