Broncos benched Trevor Siemian, but offensive issues “not just one position”

After Trevor Siemian threw three interceptions in a Monday night loss to the Chiefs, the Broncos did what had started to feel like an inevitable move and made a change at quarterback.

Brock Osweiler is in for this weekend’s game against the Eagles, but the message from the team isn’t that the switch will fix everything that’s been ailing the offense in Denver.

“Absolutely, football isn’t an individual sport, it’s a team sport,” tight end Virgil Green said, via the Associated Press. ”Yeah, we’re bringing Brock up to do things, but we all know that Trevor is totally capable. We just need a little more from everybody. Not just one position, every position.”

Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy threw the coaching staff into the mix as well and said “we’re all in this together” when it comes to getting the Broncos on better offensive footing. After outgaining their opponents in each game of their three-game losing streak and losing the turnover battle 11-2, it seems pretty obvious where the Broncos need to start cleaning things up offensively.

    The media is always willing to give Elway a free pass. However, a close inspection of Denver’s recent drafts would be quite revealing. He’s failed to competently address any of the Broncos problems. The team consists of Von Miller, Harris, Talib and a bunch of guys who look good in uniform.

  2. When the D KNOWS you can’t pass effectively, they T-Off on the running game and an aggressive pass rush and blitzes.

    The Bronco’s don’t know what they have on O until there is a legit passing threat that backs off the middle defenders.

    And… they may NOT know… until an NFL quality starting QB is on the roster.

    I agree that his draft picks have been below average. However, you have to admit he has made up for it in his free agent signings. I guarantee we land a big name QB free agent next year.
