  • Interesting tidbits from 104.3 The Fan

    D-Mac reported yesterday on 104.3 The Fan that the reason why Kelce played lights out on Sunday was because they deviated from their game plan, switching from man-coverage to zone, leaving Kelce open in the middle all game long. This was due to Chris Harris, Jr. being burned badly by Tyreek Hill on the touchdown pass and the Broncos' fear that if they didn't switch to zone, Hill would have done that all day long vs. CHJ.

    D-Mac also reported that Elway's original plan for the draft was to take Drew Lock at #10 but the coaching staff talked him out of it, but this created some disagreement (for lack of a better word) over what to do at #10, which was why the Broncos traded out of that spot and ultimately drafted Noah Fant.

    Nothing Earth-shattering but I thought it was interesting to share nonetheless.

      Well, that's one way to look at it.

      My way of looking at it is that this team lacks any type of cohesive plan whatsoever, and the coaching staff and front office aren't on the same page.

        And got a fantastic guard and potentially a really good TE too.

          If that is the case I am disappointed in that decision defensively. Travis Kelce kills us 2 times every year. We had the ability to put some pressure on Mahomes to where he was not able to throw really long passes consistently. Of course he didn't need to because Kelce was putting up HOF numbers on us underneath.

            Sounds like they're losing faith in CHJ. At this point, I wouldn't mind him walking in the offseason. We could use a youth movement at CB.

              The Broncos have been playing a lot of zone this season. The weather plays a part in the decision to play zone. Kelce is maybe the best TE in the league. Not interesting at all.

                I unfortunately have to agree with you. CHJ has looked a step slow often this year.

                  Yup, he can't be a CB1 next year. If we can sign him cheap and have him play the slot or something, fine. But he's lost a step, and from what I've heard wants big money. Hopefully we can find some replacements.

                    I imagine covering Tyreek Hill one on one in snow is like taking the steering wheel off your car, and doing 100 with vice grips clamped on the column.

                      The tidbit about the #10 pick highlights the lack of flexibility when plan A was thrown out.

                      Kudos to the coaches for knowing not to draft Lock at 10, but how did no one, especially Elway, not have an alternative other than to trade the pick?

                      They drafted a tight end who seems to be another one who’s going to have trouble staying healthy. They’ve drafted too many of those guys at that position.

                          Seems like a pick your poison type of situation.

                          They probably should have stuck with the original game plan and maybe used more double teams on Hill.
