Connor McGovern could be benched for Max Garcia as starting RG

This is Vance Joseph’s best idea for changes this week???? Anyone think this change is going to help the Denver Broncos beat the Los Angeles Rams?

After days of pressers in which Denver Broncos Head Coach Vance Joseph promised changes would be made to stop the losing skid, today’s practice revealed at least one.

Bench the starting QB? Overhaul the plays used from the playbook? Give Royce Freeman double the touches?

Nope.

Give Max Garcia a chance to compete with Connor McGovern for the starting right guard position - as reported by 9News’ Mike Klis.

“We’ve got both guys working at the moment. We’ll see who starts, but we’ve got both guys at right guard working right now,” Vance Joseph said in his afternoon news conference.

That would be the same Connor McGovern who is, according to Pro Football Focus, the third-highest ranked guard through the first five games this season (ironically, the first two play for the L.A. Rams).

It’s true McGovern did not have a great game against the Jets, but it would be pretty tough to argue he was the main problem with the offense that day.

Because obviously THAT’s what has been wrong with this team the last three games.

On Sunday Garcia could be responsible for blocking Ndamukong Suh and Aaron Donald - two of the best interior defensive linemen in the NFL.

So that’s good news.
