After Five Weeks, I Like the Offense


It seems like everyone speculated when John Fox was hired that he would build the defense first and be content with a conservative, run first offense. After five weeks it looks like something strange has happened. The offense is looking promising. I like what I see. I don't know if EFX knew what they were doing or if they were just lucky. Most likely it was a combination of both, but with the draft and free agency they have addressed the three main deficiencies of the offense: right tackle, tight end, and running back.

 

Orlando Franklin and the interior offensive linemen have jelled faster than I believed they could. They looked pretty good in the Chargers game. By virtue of Marino's injury, the running backs have sorted themselves out with Willis McGahee becoming the every down back and Knowshon the third down and change of pace back. The tight ends are better and may become good if they continue to improve. If Demaryius Thomas gets out of the training room and develops to his potential, our receiving corps will be one of the best I've ever seen with the Broncos. There seems to be enough talent there for EFX to be willing to entertain trade offers for Brandon Lloyd. Then there is the capstone Tim Tebow. We finally get to see if he can play in the NFL. If he can play up to his potential, then I'm thinking that we have all the pieces for this to develop into a very good offense. Then in the future it's a matter of adding depth and improving wherever you can.
