Denver was the only National Football League team to finish this season in the bottom five in points scored, total offense, third-down percent and red zone success.

"Rich is an intense instructor with a terrific future in advance of him". "All these guys will - we have good staff".

It was also reported, first by NFL Network's Ian Rapport, that former Giants head coach Pat Shurmur is a front-runner for the play calling job. "I appreciate all his hard work and thank him for his contributions to the Broncos". "We'll deal with those as they come". The Broncos position was not open until Sunday, when Rich Scangarello was sacked after one season. Lastly, he coached a Vikings offense and made Case Keenum a quality quarterback amongst the mediocrity that surrounded the rest of Keenum's career.

Pat Shurmur is a strong candidate for the vacancy offensive coordinator of #Broncos, I am told.

He also said he knows that the New York Yankees , Los Angeles Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox have also used film to "pick signs". Hinch told Major League Baseball investigators that he knew it was going on and was against it, but did nothing to stop it.

The expectation here is that anyone who comes in can help young quarterback Drew Lock after having had great success in the final stages of his rookie season.

Both Fangio and Elway said after the season that improving the offense's production was a priority, and both noted the Broncos' ability to "handle" the Kansas City Chiefs would be key in trying to win the AFC West.

Anyhow, Lock showed promise in the five games he got an opportunity in, with seven touchdowns, three interceptions and with 1,020 passing yards as he led Denver to a 4-1 record in the games he started.
