Another take on the "no pass" offense



As I watched the KC game and the comments during the game I couldn't help but think "some of these people don't see the big picture". Nothing since that game has changed my opinion. Let's pretend we have Aaron Rogers as the QB of the Broncos but he poses the same running threat as Tim Tebow. We have the choice of running for 250-300 yds per game and winning by a little bit or throwing a bit more and winning by a comfortable 20-30 points. Which to do?

Well, I like the no pass option. There are several reasons.

1. A fumble seems less likely and less disastrous than than the typical interception. Many games hinge on turnovers.

2. But, the most important reason is, the team is not giving the opposition any or much film to learn about tendency's when the team needs to use the pass to win. All the NYJ's know about the Broncos' passing offense is the Broncos are not afraid to go deep.

My guess is the "unknowns" about this team from the point of view of the Jets and their preparation for this game can only work to the benefit of the Broncos for this and succeeding games. It shouldn't matter if Rogers or Tebow is the quarterback, the smart play is to do what it takes to win and to keep your total potential under wraps until it is needed.

The NFL only cares about the number of wins when it comes to getting to the playoffs. No need to give the opposition any "unnecessary" help in their quest to prevent the Broncos from reaching theirs. Those who think the Broncos need to pass more to prove they are a good team are simply, I think, ignoring the big picture. The total number of wins the Broncos have at the end of the season will determine how good they are or are not.
