Sources tell Ian Rapoport of NFL Media that there’s “growing frustration” within the Broncos regarding their offensive scheme.
As of now, the Broncos rank No. 24 in the NFL in points per game and their quarterback situation remains unresolved.
Broncos executive VP John Elway has offered support for first-year HC Vance Joseph. However, should the team continue to struggle on offense, Rapoport says it won’t be surprising to see Denver make some changes to their coaching staff next year.
One issue for the team’s offense is that their offensive playbook is considered “unwieldy” and contained too much this year. Rapoport says that at times this season, the Broncos’ playbook has featured more plays than even when Peyton Manning was playing for them, which seems crazy when you consider who inexperienced the team’s quarterbacks are.
The Broncos have reportedly pared down and simplified their scheme this past week and the hope is that the team’s play-calling won’t be as much of an issue moving forward.
Should Denver continue to struggle on offense, you would have to think OC Mike McCoy could be in trouble, despite the fact that he was one of the most sought-after assistant coaches this past January.
We’ll have more regarding potential changes involving the Broncos as the news is available.
