Chris Harris Jr. sees the Broncos offense putting up 30 points a game

New, comments

Chris Harris Jr. has seen a huge difference in the Denver Broncos offense this season and expects them to put up a lot of points.

It’s no surprise that all eyes are on the Denver Broncos offense both inside and outside Dove Valley. One person who would likely know just how much the offensive side of the ball has improved would be cornerback Chris Harris Jr.

“Our offense is way better than they were last year,” Harris said last week. “With Case under center, he’s throwing great balls, he’s had great accuracy all of camp. He’s improved from OTAs.

”I feel like Case and them are clicking right now, and I expect them to put up points. I don’t see anybody just shutting them down like that with our receivers that we got. Our O-line is way better. I see them putting up points. At least 30 a game.”

It seems like all of a sudden, the Broncos have a giant chip on their shoulder. How quick people have forgotten that this roster is filled with Super Bowl talent. Since Peyton Manning retired, they have been desperately looking to fill that leadership void under center and while Keenum is no Peyton, he is good enough.

“I think everybody is excited,” Harris added. “We love being the underdog. Everybody’s sleeping on us. I wouldn’t sleep on us too much no more. Not with our quarterback.”

That’s what we like to here. The Broncos defense figures to remain an NFL powerhouse unit, but the otherworldly status that 2015 unit had is likely out of reach, so it is imperative that the offense pick up the slack and bring balance back to the franchise.
