Improve the communication

Well, this should be the easiest thing to improve on coming home and leaving the ground-shaking Lumen Field in Seattle. That crowd was incredible, outside of the boos directed towards Russell Wilson, respect is had for the impact the 12th-man has on games.

Having that nickname is not an exaggeration, they provide a serious advantage for the Seattle Seahawks when they are at their best.

For a first-time Head Coach, even more for the first-time duo of Head Coach and quarterback, that had to be an incredible test of their ability to communicate. Coming home to Denver, the offense will have to have better communication, there will be clear airwaves for it.

Remember when Peyton Manning was operating the offense and he would control the crowd? Expect the same from Russell Wilson. With that, play calls have to get in quicker from the coaching staff. Russell Wilson and the offense should not be breaking the huddle with less than ten seconds remaining at home.

This should create fewer penalties, fewer mistakes, and better overall output and result for the Denver Broncos. Improving communication goes for the defense too. There were several examples where the Denver Broncos’ defense looked to be on completely different pages as well.

I’d chalk this up to just a lack of time together in live game action. It wasn’t the same for the Denver Broncos defense, they had the advantage of having more quiet time with the Seahawks being at home, and the crowd is naturally more at rest while the offense operates.

With the Denver Broncos being at home against the Houston Texans, things will get a bit noisier while the Denver Broncos’ defense operates. You will hear IN-COM-PLETE chants, banging of seats, and DEFENSE chants throughout Empower Field.

It needs to be noted that as a unit, the defense played lights out in the second half. It looked like they worked their kinks out. Hopeful for a massive game from the Denver Broncos defense, that begins with all eleven members on the field and the coaching staff off, being on the same page.
