    To build on Rastic point we went from bottom 5 and bottom 10 in sacks allowed the previous two years to much better ranking in 2018

    IMO after the 2017 season fixing the team pass protection was a min 2 year job and imo we did a weak job of acquiring good talent in terms of players in 2018 off season. Maybe some of the young guys we got can be coached up but in 2018 season ... it did not show.

    Also the team run blocking was exceptional imo. Not only do the obvious stats show this but also the not so obvious....Lindsay was at one time number 1 in rushers with yards before contact. Part of that is Linday's vision/patience but also part is how good the blocking was.

    Watching the run blocking was also very impressive early on in the season.

    We need to get better at team pass protection but considering our starting point years ago I think the OL coaching has been making good improvements.

    With all that said going through all the different posts in all the different areas in the main forum it seems like we losing both OL coaches.

    Through the 3 game win streak, it looked like the o-line was coming together. On the road in SF, they started out bad and only got worse from there. The biggest problem I saw was no accountability. Bose would get flagged for holding and he just looks up like "what did I do?" He knows very well, what he did, this is not high school..It was constant, and eras like that are drive killers. We have not had a real O-line since Shanny was the HC. Parts of the run blocking last season was good,but the pass blocking had Case running for his life. I think it is time for some new blood at the coaching levels. Time to move forward, as the same ol, same ol, will only get us the same ol thing.

    They should keep 5 of them: the 2 o-line coaches, the RB and WR coaches and Kollar.

    All assistant coachs have been given permission to interview elsewhere.


    Report: All Broncos assistant coaches are free to interview elsewhere
    There is at least one assistant that needs to meet with Vic Fangio right now. Bear Wrestler meet The Godfather.
    By Tim Lynch on January 10, 2019 3:42 pm

    Not long after the Denver Broncos formally introduced Vic Fangio as the next head coach of the team, the current crop of assistant coaches were notified they were free to interview elsewhere.

    That Fangio might consider retaining some of those assistants is interesting and if there is one assistant on most fans minds it would be none other than defensive line coach Bill Kollar.

    Bear wrestler meets The Godfather. Something tells me those two might be kindred spirits. Here’s to hoping we see Kollar in the orange and blue implementing Fangio’s vision for elite defensive play in 2019.

    Other assistants to consider are those on the offensive side. While Gary Kubiak’s future isn’t yet set in stone as offensive coordinator, it has been reported that two assistants he would be looking to bring in immediately are long-time cohorts Rick Dennison and Brian Pariani.

    Dennison most recently gashed the Broncos for over 300 yards rushing as the offensive line coach and run-game coordinator for the New York Jets. Despite that 300 yard effort, his unit finished 29th in yards per carry and 26th in total rushing yards in 2018.

    Looks like all the assistant coaches are free to interview elsewhere. I'm sure some from last year will be retained but I just really hope we keep Bill Kollar.

    All members of the staff are still under contract and it sounds like the new head coach will get to decide who stays and who goes. It's rare that they don't give the coaches the chance to seek other opportunities in the meantime, so they must be pretty high on at least a few of them.

    Well, that is really the Head coaches decision unless of course the Front office tells him he has to. However, while we did have a pretty good run game for the most part our pass protection sucked and that is a product of the oflc... I would but all of them save possibly the strength coach...lol. And that is honesty because I have no clue if he is worth a damn or not.

    yea even though our sacks allow stat improved I would like to see the hits stats and pressure stats. My eyes saw a lot of pressure at times we just had a more mobile qb than past years.

    I do think it is more than the OL tho. Our TE and RBs did not do much to help in pass protection all season.

    With pass protection as bad as it was in previous years (9th worst in 2016 and 3rd worst in 2017) imo it was a 2 year project at best when these guys came in last year. Considering how weak our player improvements were in 2018 off season I was really impressed with the job the OL coaches did.

    I have high hopes on our young trio of RBs (Freeman, Lindsay and Jano) getting better as pass protection this off season. If we can add a good TE plus a couple good OL than I think we can get much better in 2019.

    Our run game was a serious strength in 2018 even if it was under used.

    I think we should keep those two guys another year and make a serious effort at improving our team pass protection talent.

    We went from bottom 5 (3rd worst in 2017) and bottom 10 (9th worst in 2016) in sacks the previous two years to 22nd in sacks allowed. I know part of this is mobile QB and we still faced a lot of pressures but imo only so much can be done in one year.
