Top takeaways from ‘Behind The Broncos’ | No Shortcuts: Episode 1
By Jordan Lopez
The first-ever Broncos docuseries premiered live on the Broncos’ YouTube channel at 8 p.m. ET on Tuesday night.
Fans get an exclusive look and behind-the-scenes access of new general manager George Paton and how he is approaching his very first offseason in Denver. The coaching staff, front office, and Paton work with one another as they “embrace the day-to-day.”
Paton and his team will look to build up the roster with their decisions through free agency and the NFL Draft for this upcoming season.
Episode 1, “Paton’s tenure gets underway,” was very interesting on how we get to hear from the new GM George Paton and how him and his team plan to move forward.
Here are the big takeaways from the very first episode of “Behind the Broncos: No Shortcuts.”
1. Paton acknowledging Jerry Jeudy
"What you notice with Jerry first is his competitiveness, you know the way he plays the game then his elite route running and how he separates. Broncos GM George Paton via Behind the Broncos: No Shortcuts"
Paton watching film on Jeudy early in the morning was promising.
He mentions a lot of good things about the young star.
He adds that Jeudy has “elite quickness” and the “ability to get in and out of his brakes.” Including his run after the catch. As Paton is describing a play from Jeudy vs the Titans game, he explains his quickness from the line of scrimmage and Jeudy creating separation from the corner, making it an easier pass for the quarterback.
The last thing he mentions about Jeudy is his “dynamic skills after the catch.”
Nonetheless, he seems very high on Jerry Jeudy as he was the first player mentioned by Paton in this episode.
"This team plays hard. They’re passionate, they’re competitive. Broncos GM George Paton"
The Broncos are a team with promise and this is one of the reasons why Paton accepted the offer in Denver. While talking about the team, in the beginning, he mentions that we have “really good young players.”
He mentions what you want when building a culture and when you’re building a football team.
"This team plays hard. They’re passionate, they’re competitive and that is what you want. George Paton"
One thing we all can agree upon in Broncos Country is that this team always played hard, no matter what the record was at the time.
Paton in addition talks about what he saw when he studied the team. He states,
"The young players they have on offense and some of the core guys on defense and the way Vic and the coaching staff has these guys play no matter what the record is."
The words of optimism from George Paton so far about the team have me anxiously waiting for the next season.
