Default Broncosí O: No. 1 passing, No. 30 in rushing, No. 15 in scoring

Not like we didn't know this, but the Broncos have the league's #1 pass offense, the 3rd worst rushing offense, and we're right in the middle of the pack in scoring.

Kinda funny, actually: top of the league passing + bottom of the league rushing = middle of the league scoring.

Broncosí O: No. 1 passing, No. 30 in rushing, No. 15 in scoring

The numbers are now in to confirm what has already been obvious: The Broncos are a passing team. And they arenít much of a running team.

With just the Monday Night Game left before Week 3 is completed, the Broncos lead the NFL with 350 yards per game.

However, the Broncos rank 30th in rushing with just 67.0 yards per game. Worse, they rank 32nd, or dead-last, with 2.5 yards per carry, which is often considered the truest indicator of a teamís running ability.

So first in passing and last in rushing. What does it mean? You guessed it. Overall, the Broncosí offense is so-so. They rank second in yards at 417.0 per game, but 15th in scoring at 20.3 points per game.

I have faith in our OL's improvement because of the youth on the line.

No, he cant even handle a kickoff without a fumble but I'm sure he could fix our line problems.

Our team is falling apart.

Man if we just had Hillis, Nalen, Lepsis, Neil, Schlereth we would have a decent running game. Why did McD trade those guys? What a dik

I just did.

We're 24th in red zone percentage, and 2nd in net yards.

Funny thing was, when I googled "Red zone stats" from here in the Netherlands, the first result I got was "Tim Tebow Will Improve Broncos Red Zone Stats"

There are 2 teams that are worse than us in rushing? How is that possible?

I fully expected to see Tebow in Redzone packages this year and for McD to roll him out giving him some run/pass option plays. Really, if you have Kyle Orton and are completely comfortable with him then what are you worried about with Tebow running the football?

Looks like I need to go write an article about this on Bleacher report. The premise of the article will be that we need to trade for Peyton Hillis and Peyton Manning.

Orton being at the top of the league in passing with no running game says a lot about him as a QB, imo. Imagine this guy with a real threat of a running game?

The one and two record says it all.

It has done wonders vs. the Indianapolis Colt and Jacksonville Jaguars over the years.

So did I. The lack of Tebow in short yardage / goal line is the biggest single surprise of the season to me so far.
