There are a lot of holes on that side of the ball.
have you watched the Broncos running game for the past few years? i am not even talking about losing 8 RB to injury this season, but we have not been dominant running the ball in years.
we can generate yards due to the system we run, but yards don't mean a damn thing if we can't put the ball in the end zone.
our YPC this year are inflated for 2 reasons, they came off of longer runs where the defense was playing the pass, and they came after a series of 1 and 2 yard or no gain runs and then a long run because the defense was playing the pass. we have no consistency in our running game, and for Jay to take the next step in becoming an elite QB he needs help in the form of a stud RB, and we don't have one in house.
