The Denver Broncos are sitting at 2-0 following wins against the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs. However, those two wins have not been pretty and this team is still looking for improvement. The first task is to figure out how to improve the offensive line.
On the left side, Ty Sambrailo and Evan Mathis have their struggles, but that is expected from a rookie and a veteran who did not play a snap the entire preseason. Matt Paradis is virtually a rookie since he spent his rookie year on the practice squad.
Louis Vasquez has impressed and is the leader of that offensive line. So, the problem does not lie on him. Perhaps one player that has struggled is Ryan Harris. In Week 2 against Kansas City, Justin Houston blew past him to get to Peyton Manning. Not to mention the right side has looked a bit sluggish with Ryan Harris playing right tackle.
In my opinion, Ryan Harris has not looked sharp and perhaps it is time to shuffle the offensive line. With Michael Schofield not impressive during preseason, it could be time to look at players in free agency. It was reported that the Broncos could be looking for someone as we speak.
Ryan Harris has not looked good on the offensive line for the Broncos. Fans have questioned why the team brought him back. At this point, it makes me wonder the exact same thing.
If the Broncos are going to improve, there is no doubt that it starts with the offensive line. In my opinion, it is the key reason the Denver Broncos offense is struggling so much. With the run game almost non-existent and Peyton Manning on his back almost half the time, it is time for a change.
Unfortunately for Ryan Harris, he would most likely be the first to go if they decide to make these changes. His performance is no excuse. There is no way that you let one of the best pass rushers in the game get by you like a ghost.
Looks like his third stint with Denver could lead to him being benched unless he can improve his game. Granted if he keeps up his poor performance, it will not end well for him.
