Is Gary Kubiak’s offense more effective than Peyton’s?

Because of Peyton Manning’s history in this league and the way that he plays the game, Gary Kubiak has really had to mold the offense to fit his skill set. He will not have to do that on Sunday with Brock Osweiler, and they can move to a gameplan that suits Kubiak’s play-calling skill set.

I don’t know how much the Broncos have changed things up for Manning at this point, but it was pretty clear after the first few weeks that they made some serious adjustments. Will we see the Broncos go back to the Kubiak offense on Sunday?

And will it be more effective than the Manning offense?

Those are a couple of huge questions that need answering. The Broncos’ inability to win the last two weeks has not necessarily been on the defense allowing too many points, but the offense that has been unable to produce and that has turned the ball over seven times.

You simply can’t win in the league like that. I don’t think a schematic change offensively is going to help cut down on turnovers, but we might see a more effective group.
