Default Woody Paige... offensive woes...

Paige: Broncos' offense downright offensive

By Woody Paige
The Denver Post



There's no "O" in Denver Brncs, Jsh McDaniels or Kyle rtn.

There's their primary problem and the reason they're not playing this weekend, so there.

The franchise hired a wunderkind from the Patriots because of his offensive imagination, inspiration and ingenuity.

The Brncs' offense didn't score a touchdown in two games, scored just one touchdown in three games and managed only two touchdowns in seven games. It produced three touchdowns in three games and four once.

The offense scored 30 touchdowns (21 passing, nine rushing) in 16 games (under two per game), finishing above nine dregs — Raiders, Chiefs, Seahawks, Redskins, Lions, Bills, Browns, Bucs and Rams.

In 2008, the Denver offense scored 40 touchdowns. In 1998, the team's last Super Bowl season, the offense scored 58 touchdowns.

This unit, led by the brain of McDaniels and the arm of Orton, wasn't clever, creative or competent.

Truth is, there was "D" in Denver, and it carried the Brncs until wearing down . . . and out.

The coach wants the quarterback back, and the quarterback wants to be back. But if they don't change and put the O's back in Brncs next season, neither will be invited back for a third season.

BTW, 16 of the team's 21 receiving touchdowns were by Brandon Marshall (10), Brandon Stokley (four) and Tony Scheffler (two), and two of those players definitely will be gone, and the third, Stokley, probably is a goner. Eddie Royal had zero touchdown catches.

Here's the game-by-game breakdown as the Brncs broke down:

Cincinnati — With only two field goals to show for 59 minutes, the Brncs scored a late, winning touchdown on The Immaculate Deflection (Stokley).

Cleveland — The Brncs blew out the pitiful Browns 27-6 with three touchdowns — one by Scheffler and another by Peyton Hillis, who likely won't return. One touchdown was set up with a fumble recovery at the Browns' 10.

Oakland — The Brncs won on the road 23-3 against the awful Raiders with a pair of touchdowns, including Marshall's first. An interception that gave the offense the ball at the Oakland 23 did result in a TD.

Dallas — The defense staved off the Cowboys in the closing seconds and also recovered a fumble at the Dallas 17 that would lead to one of the two touchdowns, the winner by Marshall in the 17-10 victory.

New England — The offense came up with two touchdowns, both by Marshall, to win in overtime.

San Diego — The Brncs ended up with four touchdowns, but Royal produced two of those with long TD returns. Stokley and Scheffler had touchdown receptions in the 34-23 victory, Denver's sixth straight.

Baltimore — The Brncs scored one touchdown in their first loss, a 30-7 beatdown.

Pittsburgh — The defense scored the Brncs' only touchdown on a fumble return. (The offense had 13 touchdowns in the first half of the season.)

Washington — Marshall scored Denver's two touchdowns before the starting quarterback was hurt, and the Brncs melted with Chris Simms, who will be dismissed.

San Diego — One lousy field goal.

New York Giants — Although the 26-6 victory by the Brncs looks impressive, they scored just two touchdowns (one by Stokley), and the defense can take credit for causing one with a fumble recovery on the Giants' end of the field.

Kansas City — The offense scored two touchdowns, and the defense set up another with an interception return to the Chiefs' 3 in the humiliating, season-scorching loss to the Chiefs.

The offense that didn't score an adequate number of touchdowns was ineffective in the red zone, unsuccessful on critical third and fourth downs, conservative on first and second downs, inconsistent with a soft rushing and a horizontal passing strategy and unproductive in the first quarter.

It's touchdown football, not touch football.

You can't win in the National Football League or the Pop Warner League with an offense scoring three touchdowns in one four-game losing streak and six in another four-game losing streak.

The quarterback said privately that he wasn't allowed by the coach to throw deep often enough, and the coach said publicly that the quarterback had a "pretty decent" season. The remarks weren't complimentary.

Those who believe the coach and/or the quarterback should be run out of town won't, and shouldn't, get their wish. But the two have to prove and improve themselves in 2010, or there won't be playoffs for Denver for a fifth consecutive season.

Put the "O" back in the ffense and the Brncs.

I don't know if you guys know about Woody Paige. He is on a show called Around The Horn. I am not sure if you get to see it it is an ESPN show. He also was on a show called Cold Pizza which was a sports show some years back on ESPN. Woody loves to be controversial for the sake of it. If you youtube the guy and listen he loves his own arguments! He also was a media favorite of the old guard at the Broncos and has not received such favorable treatment with the new personnel. If we went 16-0 and won the whole thing then Paige could happily try and convince you how bad we were or if we were 0-16 then he would try and convince you we were heading in the right directions. He also is not a fan of McDaniels, which he is allowed to be of course but it shows in his arguments. We consider him here as an entertainer first and journalist second. As you can clearly see in this article he contradicts himself a number of times! Gotta love Woody.

Woody does have some points for consideration in this article. He touches on the red-zone offense at the conservative playcalling. Both need to be looked at this offseason. The inconsistency does need to be addressed as Woody mentioned in the article as does accountability in certain positions and the accountability of the coaching. An offseason in the pros and at college looks at accountability of both players and coaches and often or not a positive development follows when weak areas are highlighted. It is nice to see that Woody, for the time has put his pitch-fork away and is prepared to see what happens next season! Good one Woody, you know how to keep the Denver faithful entertained

I was trying to be polite about Woody, but this would be accurate too, assuming a t-wat is as bad as I think it is

Yep, we get Around the Horn, usually around 11:00 pm over here, on ESPN America...I actually find him quite amusing even though he does talk rubbish.....Bill Plaschke is really annoying though.
