New coach, new operation
The old is gone, the new is here.
Vic Fangio is bringing an old school approach with modern tweaks and 30-plus years of understanding what works for players and perhaps more importantly, what doesn’t.
Fangio is what you would generalize as a football version of a ‘gym rat’ who lives and breathes the game, but he doesn’t have a low emotional IQ. Fangio isn’t Wade Phillips, who seems to have a pretty elite level grasp on the culture players respond to nowadays, but Fangio is his own version of a player’s coach and the early response to his leadership has been outstanding.
Some Broncos players have even said he’s exactly what the team needed.
Derek Wolfe went so far as to say that the void of leadership left by Peyton Manning in 2016 hadn’t been filled in Denver…until perhaps now.
Though Vance Joseph was only in Denver a short time, he had his way of doing things and Fangio will have his way of doing things.
It will be interesting to see how players react and respond to the way this new coaching staff runs a practice, or the first thing really even close to a practice we have.
