Broncos news not related to Jay Cutler; McDaniels discusses some football

Lost in the 30 minute long conversation that focused on the situation involving his starting quarterback, Josh McDaniels did spend some time talking about football items not related to Cutler.  Here is a brief rundown --

McDaniels acknowledged that he is "concerned" that Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall could face a suspension from the NFL stemming from an arrest earlier this month after a physical dispute with his fiancée in Atlanta. Charges were dropped the next day.

Still, Marshall has had multiple domestic dispute issues in the past and he had a three-game NFL suspension whittled down to one game last summer.

McDaniels said Marshall is focusing on getting his life in order.

McDaniels said tight end Tony Scheffler can be a strong receiving option for him. There have been reports that Scheffler is on the trade market.

McDaniels said the team will use some 3-4 and 4-3 defensive alignments this season. He said how much 3-4 the team uses will depend on what it does during the rest of free agency and the draft.

McDaniels said the Broncos will use some of the old zone-blocking schemes as well as the running scheme he was used to in New England. The Patriots used gap blocking in which the guards often pulled out and blocked.

Although McDaniels said he prefers bigger offensive linemen than Denver has traditionally used, he believes the Denver offensive line will be perfect to use in the new scheme.

Like a breath of fresh April air, hearing McDaniels talk about football stuff is definitely refreshing.  So please, feel free to discuss something other than you know what!
