Takeaway No. 3: Joseph is confident the Broncos can turn the offense around.
Before handing the microphone over to his new coaching staff, head coach Vance Joesph expressed his optimism about fixing the teams offense, saying that it’s going to be a ‘easy fix to score more points.’
Joseph explained he has been watching a multitude of game film from last season, and says the issues that plagued the Broncos offense all of last year are obvious.
“I saw the unit move the ball well,” Joseph explained.
“It had no problem moving the ball. It had some problems in the red zone scoring touchdowns, and that was a big issue. As far as execution, as far as guys playing hard, as far as throwing and catching the football, I didn’t see any problems there.”
Joseph’s observations on the teams red zone struggles are backed by statistics. The Broncos converted just 46.8 percent of their red zone possessions into touchdowns, placing them 28th in the league overall. However, the team also toiled when it came to moving the ball up field at times, ranking 21st in the league in total yards gained.
Despite this, Joseph believes his new coaching staff can turn the teams offensive issues around.
“It’s going to be an easy fix for us, to score more points. It’s not totally broken,” Joseph said.
Vance Joseph certainly is a ‘glass half full’ type of person when it comes to the Broncos offense. After a tough 2016-17 campaign, a bit of positivity and belief is a refreshing change.
