Denver Broncos: Fanzone interview with Ron Greco
In our next edition of the Denver Broncos fanzone, I revisit with an old friend, Ron Greco, and get his takes on the Broncos this season.
The Denver Broncos take on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. It will be the final NFC opponent the face off against this season. Which means this will be the final regular season matchup until 2022. Both teams are going in opposite directions.
Denver is hoping that a win will help bolster their chances of making the playoffs. They will need to keep winning to have an outside chance and get a bit of help.
With this being a huge game, I decided to reconnect with an old friend. Ron Greco was there when the fanzone articles first started. I even had the pleasure to see him during my two trips to Denver.
He will be in attendance as well for the Broncos vs. 49ers game on Sunday.
Here is what he had to say about the state of the Denver Broncos heading into their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.
The Denver Broncos got a huge win over the Bengals. What stood out to you most in this game?
What stood out most to me has to be the performance of the offensive line. They’re banged up, down 3 starters and only gave up 2 sacks. They also helped lead the way for Lindsay and Freeman to rush for over 200 yards combined. They really set the tone for the offense.
The Broncos potentially lost Chris Harris Jr. for the rest of the regular season. How does the team keep up the streak they are on without him?
It will be tough being without Chris Harris Jr. He’s one of the best CB’s in the league and is irreplaceable. Our young CB’s are going to have to step up big for us to win these next games.
Phillip Lindsay has been such a special talent this season. Could his performance help the Broncos make some noise in the final four games?
Absolutely. Lindsay is beast. He runs hard and he runs angry. It looks like he’s trying to prove a point on every run. I know myself and the rest of Broncos Country are loving it. The only way we make some noise in these last 4 games is if Lindsay continues to do what he’s been doing. Especially now with losing a playmaker in Sanders we’re going to need Lindsay to step up more than ever.
The Broncos travel to Santa Clara to take on the San Francisco 49ers. What does Denver need to do to get the win?
The Broncos need to keep doing what they’ve been doing. They need to protect the ball on offense, force turnovers on defense and they need to run the ball. With the loss of Sanders it will be critical to get the ground game. We have to do what we can to help take pressure off of Keenum and our young WR’s who are being forced to step up.
How confident are you that the Broncos can get to the playoffs?
I was a lot more confident before we lost Chris Harris Jr and Emmanuel Sanders for the season. Those are two heavy blows. While our schedule is favorable, and we’ve been coaching and playing better lately, it’ll be tough to win out and have things fall our way. I believe it can happen, but don’t think I’d put money on it. If we had E & CHJ I would like our chances a lot more.
Thank You Ron for taking the time out to chat with me. Here’s hoping for another big win! Go Broncos!
