The Broncos have hired Vic Fangio as head coach and the move was met with overwhelming positivity from Denver fans. Though there are still a few dissenters https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Shelby-Harris-Jersey , the general reaction has been of excitement, relief and renewed trust in John Elway and the Colorado football team. I feel the same...mostly...but the whole thing has made me question why so many of these hard-to-please fans are happy with this decision and I think it boils down to four different possibilities. Possibility #1fans love badass coachesVic Fangio has been called - by players, not just by crazy podcasters like me - an “evil genius” and he is well known for his no-nonsense style of coaching. Though he’s seemingly famous for speaking his mind and being “old-fashioned”, he is also beloved by his players and that speaks a lot for someone who hasn’t managed to get a head coaching job after 30+ years working on the sidelines of the NFL. People like this type of coach because it’s somewhat theatrical and romantic and seems like someone who will be fun to watch from afar to see his badassery while in charge of their team. Though he has exactly as much experience as a head coach as Vance Joseph did when he was hired two years ago, with age comes wisdom and with toughness comesbetter play on the field. Right?Possibility #2 fans are happy that John Elway hired an unconventional coachJohn Elway, though just three years removed from leading his team to a Super Bowl victory, has of late been precariously perched atop the monstrously huge pedestal upon which he was deservedly placed 20 years ago.Part of the negativity towards the GOAT has stemmed from him seemingly hiring his buddies to fill important roles as well as the rumor that he only hires “yes men” to do his bidding. No matter how ridiculous and untrue the rumors, these things settle into the subconscious of a fanbase and squeeze little inklings of doubt into the forefront of the group-think. This hire throws all of those rumors out the window and especially since Fangio, someone who seems to be the opposite of a “yes man”, was hired instead of Mike Munchak who lives at least on the edge of Buddiesville in Elwayland. This hire shows fans that Elway is willing to do anything and everything to move this franchise forward. #7 saw greatness in a man whose personality has perhaps cost him head coaching jobs in the past and made the difficult decision to take a risk on an older Bradley Roby Color Rush Jersey , possibly pain-in-the-butt coach. This is an exciting twist in the saga of Elway as GM and though he still favors his buddies (hello Gary Kubiak), we are willing to look past that after this awesomely different hire. Possibility #3 fans believe Fangio to have been a great coaching candidateThough Vic Fangio had never been given his chance to lead a team in his many years of NFL service, his history on the defensive side of the ball and the respect that he consistently receives from his players, is enough to prove him to be a fantastic hire by John Elway. He has led some of the best defenses in the past 10 years both in San Francisco and Chicago and bringing him in to direct and orchestrate the Orange Rush is an idea - soon to be reality - that is beyond drool worthy. Players can’t stop talking about his leadership skills and how genuine and good a guy he is both on and off the field and his gravitas and confidence will be a great change from the last two seasons in Denver.Many pundits and fans alike believe that an offense like those of the Chiefs or Rams is the future of the NFL and that teams must conform or fail. John Elway and company are making a statement to the rest of the league that a dominant defense, a solid offense led by a QB who doesn’t make mistakes and a respected group of coaches is the counter-punch that will throw KC on its back and beg for mercy over the next four or five years. Possibility #4 fans are only happy because it was a pathetic group of candidates and Fangio is the most interesting - they aren’t happyThis is just a more negative approach to option #2 and there isn’t much more to say past the headline. There is little argument that the list of candidates was far from spectacular and though after some research many started to like Fangio, the excitement is almost a middle digit at what this franchise and team have become. Personally, I like the hire and I will be extremely excited to see what Elway, Fangio and Kubiak put on the field in 2019 and beyond. Why do you think most everyone is so happy about the hire?

Scouting Broncos quarterback Drew LockThe Denver Broncos traded up with the Cincinnati Bengals in the second-round of the 2019 NFL Draft to select Missouri quarterback, Drew Lock. Lock played four seasons at Missouri and was a four-year starter for them during his college career there and he improved each and every season while there. During his four-year career at Missouri, Lock totaled 12,193 yards passing, 99 touchdowns and 39 interceptions. He completed 56.9% of his passes and also rushed for 437 career yards and total 9 career rushing touchdowns. This past season for Missouri, Lock totaled 3,498 yards passing, 28 touchdowns Jeff Heuerman Color Rush Jersey , 8 interceptions and completed 62.9% of his passes. A pretty solid senior season for the potential first-round pick.

He finished his career second in SEC history in passing yards (12,193) and third in touchdown passes (99). Very similar to Derek Carr coming out of Fresno State, Lock is a classic arm thrower who stubbornly believes that every throw is there, but is still figuring out how to use his eyes and piece together his timing. He showed expanded vision as a senior and appeared to eliminate things quicker mid-read. Overall, Lock showcases a live arm and the makeup required to be an NFL starter, but he needs to continue developing his accuracy https://www.broncosfanstore.com/Darian-Stewart-Jersey , mechanics and decision-making to live up to his intriguing potential.How Drew Lock fits with the Denver Broncos going forward:Lock fits in as the Broncos quarterback of the future behind veteran Joe Flacco who is fully entrenched as the starter. This will allow Lock to develop behind Flacco without the pressure of having to play right away.Broncos Offensive Coordinator Rich Scangarello will be one tasked with developing Lock. He’s best known for his development of Nick Mullens. Now he’ll have the high-upside cannon armed Drew Lock to develop. Here is what Lock had to say about his pre-draft interactions with Scangarello.With Scangarello developing Lock and likely developing an offensive system that fits his strengths, I think we could see some positive results quickly from him. Lock seems like he wants to be great, has the intelligence to do it, as well as the work ethic needed. I really like this marriage. Lock is the Broncos quarterback of the future, but he still needs plenty of work. We as fans need to be patient with him and trust Scangarello’s teachings.
