Default McDaniels to scrap the fabled Broncos O line zone blocking scheme?

We thought he would come in and fix the defense and leave the offense alone.

We were wrong, he has proceeded to do a major overhaul so will he change the blocking scheme too. I think it is obvious that he will. He has a plan and it is all his plan.

What do you guys think will McDaniels screw with the o line?

True, but it's obviously going to be his O from NE and my question is does the current O line scheme work with his system?

You can run a ZBS from any formation, so i dont see why it would change if he kept turner and dennison

If it ain't broken, don't fix it...

I can only hope he doesn't **** up this side of the line. These guys were made for zone blocking.

I remember reading that he tried to do it at New England with mixed success. It seems like it appeals to him but with his bloodlust, he might get rid of it.

Wow, you know I could really care less. I think I have fallen totally of this bandwagon. I think maybe I'll stay away for awhile, until the draft. Maybe I'll become more enthused.

People need to understand what he is installing his passing game. NE used the ZBS, that why they drafted Maloney out of MINN

I'm talking about the offense as a whole. That great offense that was number 2 in yards but in the area that mattered they were average.

Give them 8 more turnovers from the defense, do you think they'd have been 16th in scoring?

Right, because the running game sucked. The running game sucked because we didn't have any backs. Seriously, Selvin Young is a backup on most teams. The only back who proved worthwhile was Hillis. Without a goal-line running game, the defenses keyed on the pass.

Is my analysis too simplistic?

Well seeing as how Shanny wasn't going to fire Slowik that wasn't going to happen.

It would be completely moronic to abandon our running scheme... while I think McTard is a jerk and stupid with player management etc... he knows his X's and O's, so I'll give it that he isn't dumb enough to change what's worked for so long.

Actually the lines strength last year was pass blocking and sometimes struggled with the zone block on running plays. I am not saying they should abandon it. My point is both sides of the ball can be improved. But I also acknowledge the Defense needs the most work which is why I almost guarantee that the draft is 95% Defense.

Perhaps.

I'm more inclined to believe that the problem with Slowik had more to do with the lack of pressure given what he said in August of last year about knowing that they didn't have the guys to run his scheme, but doing what they could to make it work.

Whether it be Slowick or Nolan, we've got the same problem on defense right now as far as the ability to generate pressure is concerned. I think we've made some good signings this season so far. I'm not excited about the 3-4, but willing to see how it pans out given that it's easier to find consistent linebackers than it is to find consistend Dlinemen.

I'm not against any of the signings we've made. I just don't see what all the fawning is about given that they're exactly the same kind of signings that we've always made.

Nice

More and more teams are going to the zone block so I don't imagine they will abandon it. Especially with Dennison staying on.
