NFL Season Preview: #27 Denver Broncos

with one comment

Overview: The Broncos went 8-8 last season, using many a different way to win. Like a typical Mike Shanahan team, the Broncos had 8 different leading rushers in games last season. They fell down the stretch last year, losing their last three games. This was all in route to a busy off season.

Offseason Moves: The for mentioned Mike Shanahan was dismissed from the Broncos, and replacing him was former New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. As one of his first moves as new head coach, McDaniels attempted and failed to trade for his former QB Matt Cassel. Rumor of this spread to Denver’s starting QB Jay Cutler, and it upset him. This resulted in sending Cutler to Chicago for draft picks and now starting QB Kyle Orton. The Broncos also signed RBs LaMont Jordan, Correll Buckhalter, and Darius Walker. Inexplicably, the Broncos then went on to take Georgia RB Knowshon Moreno in the first round, and also took Tennessee DE Robert Ayers later in the round. Also disgruntled recently is WR Brandon Marshall, and asked to be traded. As an insurance policy, the Broncos brought in WR Jabar Gaffney.

Upcoming Season: The Broncos’ season isn’t looking too bright right now. Their top receiver is disgruntled,  and the defense is still the same shaky one as it was last year. Yes, their RB core is stacked, but you can’t fit five backs on the field at one time.

Eddie RoyalPlayer to watch: If Marshall does get his wish and is traded, the number one guy is WR Eddie Royal. Relatively a surprise last year, Royal caught 91 balls for 980 yards and 5 TDs. Of course, that was with teams double teaming Marshall. It will be interesting to see if Royal can handle the job of being the number one guy in that pressure cooker in Denver.

Prediction: 4-12, 4th in AFC West

The Broncos got a lot worse. Kyle Orton is just not the QB Jay Cutler is, and I don’t know a head coach that can win with unhappy players. It’s gonna be a long year Bronco fans.
