Week 5: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Week 5
Denver Broncos @ New York Jets

 

The Good…

I am having a difficult time finding any real positives from the game yesterday.  There were a few bright spots among the trash that the Broncos fielded yesterday on all three phases of the game.  Courtland Sutton got his first NFL receiving touchdown.  Case Keenum only threw one interception.  Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman continue to shine when given the opportunity, but again, Denver abandoned the run game.  I guess I can give the defense props for holding RB Bilal Powell to a mere five yards per carry.  Shoutout to Demaryius Thomas for actually catching the ball on 5 of his 6 targets and eclipsing the century mark in receiving yards for the first time this season, oh, and congrats to Derek Wolfe for getting his first career interception.

The Bad…

This one is glaringly obvious.  You cannot give up 332 rushing yards in any game, let alone against a team like the Jets.  The scarier part was the 14.6 average yards per run attempt by Isaiah Crowell.  Getting gashed for 2 70+ yard plays in the same game is crazy, but you found a way to allow them to do it in the same damn quarter.  Von Miller has been missing since Week 1.  Denver’s secondary may as well sit on the bench.  Vance Joseph has no clue what he is doing and Joe Woods wouldn’t know how to put a defense game plan together if it smacked him in the face.

The Ugly…

All of it.  Inept offense.  Porous run defense.  Frequent flier mile promotions for all travellers.  A road loss to a 1-3 Jets team that lost to the Cleveland Browns.  A coaching staff that is in over their heads and a GM that is apparently too proud to admit mistakes.  It is time to rebuild this thing.  Do it now.  Don’t wait for the Rams to embarrass the Broncos at home on Sunday.  Cut bait with Joseph.  Show Joe Woods the door.  Hand the clipboard to Case Keenum and hand the green dot to Chad Kelly.  Do it now, do it today, and save the fan base.
