1. Improved Play Calling

By Steven Kriz, Staff Writer

For decades, Gary Kubiak and the West-Coast Offense meant a very productive offense. Combine this with the zone-blocking scheme and you have a dominant run-game and big play potential in the pass-game. For two years with the Broncos, this was simply not the case. Instead of formulating an offense to fit his players, Kubiak tried to fit square pegs into round holes. This led to an offense that was nearly unwatchable.

Gary Kubiak is now out, and Mike McCoy and Bill Musgrave are now in control of the offense. McCoy is known for his keen ability to create an offense suited for his players and that is a big reason to think that the Broncos can get back to their Super Bowl winning ways.

McCoy will figure out ways multiple ways to get his playmakers the ball in space. Too many times a year ago Kubiak failed to do this. 2nd and 1 and 3rd and 1 were the most infuriating play calls of all. The opponent knew the Broncos were going to run the ball right down the pipe, and knew it was most likely going to be to the right. Rarely was there a variation from this plan, and rarely was the play successful.

The Broncos should be far more effective in 2nd/3rd and short, and should also be better on first down to avoid all the 2nd/3rd and long situations the Broncos also faced a year ago.

Yes, the offensive line has been revamped. Yes, the quarterback should be better. Yes, the Broncos did a great job of adding playmakers outside of Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders. But the biggest reason of all the Broncos should have far more offense success is the way that all these players are used. With a better offense to go with this still dominant defense, it provides great hope that the Broncos can hoist the Lombardi again in 2017.
