Denver Broncos: Stock report after Falcons loss
Pat Shurmur, Offensive Coordinator
It is hard to determine what to say at this point. Pat Shurmur and his offense have been on nearly every stock report of the season, and nothing seems to be getting better.
While the offense had another fourth-quarter revival and rattled off 21 points, it was too late. It is clear that this offense needs to play more than one quarter of clean football, and that is on offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.
The play-calling is often amiss or confusing at best, and it is clear that for the most part, this offensive is incapable of moving the chains, often leaving it up to the defense to make plays for any hopes of a victory.
In the past two games, and often in situational football, Phillip Lindsay is grossly underutilized. Of course, running the football when down by a large margin is often not the answer, but it seems that Shurmur tends to move away from running the ball before Denver is even down a large margin.
Pat Shurmur is giving flashbacks of Mike McCoy, Bill Musgrave, and Rich Scangarello. One thing these three have in common? They were all fired midseason, or immediately following the season. Broncos Country is critical of Pat Shurmur, and for good reason.
Shurmur’s seat is heating up, and if the offense continues at the trend it is at, it wouldn’t be impossible to imagine that the Denver Broncos could part ways with Shurmur before the conclusion of the season.
