Broncos offense ‘can be better’ says OC Adam Gase


The Denver Broncos offense was a force to be reckoned with during the 2013 season, until of course they ran into the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. The Broncos and quarterback Peyton Manning set records left and right.

The Broncos and Manning set records for most passing yards in a single season, most touchdown passes in a single season and five different players scored at least 10 touchdowns.

Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase think the Broncos can be better in 2014.

“Oh yeah, we can be better. We can do some things better, we can make better calls, I can make better calls, I can get us in better situations,” Gase said, via ESPN.com. “There are some things we’ve got our eyes on.”

There will be some hurdles for the Broncos offense. They lost wide receiver Eric Decker to the New York Jets and running back Knowshon Moreno to the Miami Dolphins. The Broncos think the run game is an area they can expand, and Montee Ball looks like the man pegged to take the lead on the ground.

With such a prolific passing attack taking so much attention off the run game, their average of a little over four yards per carry is somewhat disappointing.

    Maybe not 55 TDs but PFM will be in the 40s.

    with their upgraded defense and the injured starters come back ( only 2 starters on the roster on defense started and played in the superbowl). So with 9 starters on this years defense who didn’t play in superbowl (3 of those new All-pros) the offense won’t have to score as many points this year to win.

    Their running avg. is heavily skewed by Peyton Manning’s kneel downs at the end of games (somewhere on the order of 25-30 of their “rushing attempts”. When you look at the ypc of their running backs, it looks better, with Moreno at 4.3 ypc, Ball at 4.7 ypc (5.9 ypc over the last 8 games), Hillman at 4.0 ypc (he averaged 4.6 ypc before his fumble and benching, after which he regressed), and Anderson at 5.4 ypc.
