This year’s Broncos defense is off and running (over quarterbacks) with the conversion to a 3-4 scheme. The last time the team had success in a 3-4 was with our infamously dubbed “Orange Crush” defense in the 70’s. While the strength of the original “Orange Crush” was its linemen, the current squad has arguably one of the best secondaries. The 3-4 was pioneered by Denver defensive coordinator Joe Collier back in 1969. The ‘Orange Crush” is still ranked #9 of all-time according to NFL Network in our Clip of the Week!
