To hear Broncos coach Vic Fangio explain it, his team has no problem with a drag lock despite Locke’s four objections since his return from a right shoulder injury.
“As a team, we just need to fix the entire passing method,” Fangio answered Monday when asked about the main problems Locke faced in Sunday’s 43-16 loss to Kansas City.
So Bronco has a game pass problem.
Fangio said, “We haven’t thrown her very efficiently over the past two weeks and this is an 11-player operation and we as coaches – we’re all in it together.” “We have to work on that and it has to get better, no doubt about that.”
Fangio’s response undoubtedly counted.
Locke posted the Passing Ratings of 34.9 and 57.7 – the lowest and third lowest in nine matches early in his career – in the past two games. But instead of distinguishing him, which would have fueled speculation about Bronco’s opinion of Locke, Fangio accused the whole process.
Make it a case of the entire attacker and Fangio can still lend his support behind Lock. In major statistical traffic metrics, the Broncos are falling short.
They rank 26 or worse in passing yards per game (209.2; 26), passing yards per game (6.09; 27), landing passes (six; 29), pedestrian rating (68.1; 30) and achievement percentage (57.8%, 31).
Broncos’ ten interceptions are tied for 2nd place in the NFL and 3rd place, which is a basic pass game for teams, they are 30 (35.9%).
Excuses are ready if he chooses Bronco.
Injuries: Locke missed two matches, receiver Cortland Sutton played one match (ACL), backlash Philip Lindsey played the equivalent of two matches (toe and concussion) and narrow end, Noah Funt, behind Melvin Gordon and receiver KJ Hamler also lost time.
Youth: Ten players who were on the field in at least one attacking shot on Sunday were either junior or second-year players.
Competition: The Broncos’ four losses were for the teams totaling 22-4 (Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and Kansas City).
In fact, we should have expected this to happen.
At the start of the training camp, General Manager John Elway warned of a possible slow offensive start due to youth and the lack of a personal off-season and pre-season games program.
“I don’t think we can expect with not a suitable season for us to go out and hit all cylinders,” Elway said.
Three months later, Elway is proven correct.
As Lock tries to fight through his struggles, what makes it even worse is that Broncos’ crime can’t hang their collective hat on one thing. Fictional receiver and novice Jerry Judy, receiver Tim Patrick and now narrow rookie party Albert Okwigpunam need a lock to be on target.
“Drew will play better, eliminate negative plays and complete more balls,” Fangio said.
So what’s the problem? Sometimes, Lock seems to leave the pocket too early instead of escalating. Other times, he seems to rely on his athletic style to take a funky-looking throw that ends up off target. The result is a young midfielder who presses.
“I’m pretty sure it is – when things don’t go well, you press, especially when you’re a young midfielder and you don’t have a bank of actors to skip an extended period in the game where Fangio said.” Often, if it wasn’t his first look. Exist, his natural reaction sometimes is to get out of pocket when he needs to stay with progress a little more than he probably has. ‘
As the Broncos start preparing to ship to Los Angeles, the mission of Fangio, Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmore and Quarterback Coach Mike Shula, makes it clear to lock in the corrections that need to be made, but also to make sure they stay positive otherwise the match will be. He lost well before kick-off.
“He must pass these games,” Fangio said. “The only way he will get better is by playing.”
