Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe is pleased with the way the team is approaching life with new head coach Vic Fangio leading the way.
The Denver Broncos look to be on a new and better path.
In recent years, there have been more downs than ups while the Denver Broncos had been losing. They finished 5-11 in 2017 and followed that year up by winning just one more game, finishing 6-10 in 2018.
One of the big things that was a part of the team’s lack of success was the fact that they just didn’t seem like they were on the same page at all times, neither offense or defense. It was like, when something went right, another thing went wrong and that was basically the last two seasons in a nutshell.
According to Broncos defensive lineman Derek Wolfe, nobody needs to panic when it comes to everybody being on the same page.
"“The team chemistry is a lot better than it was in the last two years.”— Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe"
The thing is, each player and coach needs to know what everybody around them is doing and what their jobs are. Without that, you will run into problems. For example, one player may assume someone else is covering a wide receiver but when they assume incorrectly, it will oftentimes turn into something really bad, like a long gain or even a touchdown.
Too often last year we saw players looking confused. Even the coaches had a puzzled look on their faces at times.
Wolfe has been fairly vocal when it comes to things going wrong. He is tired of losing, and rightfully so. After winning Super Bowl 50, the Broncos have not been back to the playoffs and have gone through multiple quarterbacks since the retirement of Peyton Manning.
With a defensive-minded head coach leading the way and a proven winner at quarterback (even if it hasn’t shown as of late), the Broncos are hopefully turning over a new leaf and are on their way to future success.
