    Itís time to open the offense up.

    The formula that we used to win the SB isnít viable any longer. Itís time to play to score points instead of playing not to lose...

    Flacco played well today and he showed me enough in the Raiders game.

    We need to pass the ball more aggressively instead of waiting until weíre down multiple scores in the second half...

    Canít wait till we get Bryce back.... weíll have a good squad as long as we stop playing scared on offense
    -Bronco in UT


    While I both agree and disagree with many posts in this thread I have to lean towards champ on this one. [B][COLOR="DarkOrange"]Jay really needs to learn how to manage the game better, and also to learn that you don't have to go for the big play [U]EVERY[/U] time on every drive[/COLOR][/B]. There is something to be said to check the ball down and live to fight another day. -Great Post Cut the Excuses out please. sigh...

    Helll of a post

    Yep when we opened the offense up his efficenfy and ability to move the ball magically improved...

    This west coast garbo weíve been running from under center hasnít been working. Itís crazy as soon as we got in shotgun and played with temp Flacco played better.

    Flaccoís not the problem right now

    I agree, but it's kinda like trying to identify a particular burning piece of waste in a blazing dumpster fire.

    Iíd agree if Flacco didnít get hit while throwing the ball 75% of the time. We donít have an oline to sustain him even if he does get the ball out fast.

    More likely that the Bears defense started to tire out from the heat and altitude, which allowed the Broncos offense to move the ball easier.

    If they let Flacco drop back and try to throw deep every play, heíll end up in a wheelchair with this o-line....

    And where are the roll-outs & bootlegs???

    Does the modernized Shanahan/Kubiak/West Coast/Seifert/Walsh/49ers offense no longer implement it???

    the offense needs to figure it out, scangrello that is

    flacco moves the ball, and yes a lot of the time its a 3rd and long but we do move down the field, and get to the red zone and then the play calling and penelties screw it up
    on flaccos int, we had a 3rd and goal on the 2...and we get cute and pass the ball against fuller....why not rolls Royce with a blocker??? why not Sutton who was single covered, even with the bad high throw fuller would have tackled him short

    we hard all summer about shannahans TE friendly system...where is that??

    where are the slants, the quick throws, the RB screens that work so well against us never work for us...why?

    Obviously, there has been a lack of ambition and confidence at all levels, together with the new coaching staff still getting to know the players and the team in real time. Hopefully, the way we ended the Bears game is the launchpad for the rest of the season.

    They were there against Oakland and I think one or two yesterday. Flacco isnít great throwing on the run so weíll see less of it with him. Also I donít think they wanted to give Mack/Floyd/Lynch a free run at him. The bootleg wonít work if we canít get the stretch play to work and so far we havenít been able to get the stretch play going. Bolles holds too much to let him block laterally and Leary is a terrible fit for a zone scheme so when you add in a play that isnít designed to go into any particular gap youíll get holding calls because Leary lacks the movement skills to gain position and Bolles lacks the awareness/technique to not hold when a play bounces outside.

    We just got done drafting top 10 and top 5...we kinda have been tanking going on two years.

    This offense has had issues for a very long time.

    This offense has been bad for years. Even when we won the last Super Bowl the offense would disappear entire halves that season.

    This offense is a 2 year project min from when we start making the right moves. I liked the effort better last off-season but time will tell if they were the right moves.

    Yeah, they need to open up the gate and let the stallions run. This is a young team and short passes are ok but just to many of them. We need to score before the red zone, it will make it easier when were there. We have to open up and make the other team play mistake free. The Broncos can't put the halter on and expect to win with a controlled offense. Take some long shots down field on downs 1 and 2. We have the WR that can make plays and a QB that knows how to bounce back from his mistakes. With this schedule, really what have we got to lose.
