Lately when prognosticators prognosticate on the Broncos "the team in transition" quote often comes up but is that always bad?
One of the issues for Denver is that the schemes both offensively and defensively are a drastic change from the failed previous regimes. So obviously the team will not be comfortable with these schemes this year as they will be in a year or two. The coaches may not be able to implement certain aspects of their schemes this year or should I say fully implement all aspects of their schemes.
But this change is not necessarily always bad. For example in the early games such as against Cleveland and Cincinnati, those teams are like the rest of us and are not fully sure what they are going to see. It will be difficult for them to fully scheme and attack the weaknesses of the offense and defense. Let alone the weaknesses of individual players. Then as the year goes on, teams will have more film and will maybe "figure out" Denver. So I expect to see some of these games where the other team just seems to have Denver's number. Kind of like Miami's new wrinkle the wildcat offense last year, it was very effective early in the year but by the time Denver played Miami, opposing teams were able to shut it down. Then the coaches will do their adjustments add new aspects to the scheme and again pose problems for their opponents.
So IMO being in a drastic transition is not always bad. But what are your opinions will the transition process be a hindrance or help to the 2009 Denver Broncos? Will this transition process cause wins or losses for the Broncos? As a football novice do I got this all wrong?
