McCoy generally is better prepared to serve in the job he once performed well enough to become a head coach, given the experience as a head coach. Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, like everyone else, can connect the dots without McCoy having to say a word.
Lynn said Thursday that he decided not to name permanent captains in his first season as head coach, opting instead to appoint them on a week-to-week basis. “I’d try to put 100 if I could”. I know it’s happening, and I know it’s a big deal, but it’s not like I’m sitting here every day saying, ‘I need one.
“I just feel like I’m my old self again”, said Marshall, who was inactive the final four games of the 2016 season due to a hamstring injury and finished with 52 tackles.
It seems obvious that the Chargers will pound the ball with Melvin Gordon on offense and that Joey Bosa could be a massive force on the defensive side of the ball against the Broncos new offensive line.
“Right now, we have to make a decision, ” said defensive coordinator Joe Woods. I’ll take the Chargers to cover.
Can Trevor Siemian get to a hot start to begin the season? It does help just talking about the preparation part of it, what type of players they have and what they like to do in certain situations as players. “He knows the scheme like the back of his hand”, Hayward said. “Philosophically we’re going to add some wrinkles and to go back earlier on some of the questions with the first year in the system and we still have a lot to do moving forward”. “Since back in the day with (former Broncos coach John) Fox in 2002, we’ve always played everybody. I’m going to make some plays this year”.
Four years after accepting the Chargers’ head coaching position, he’s back in Denver. As fate would have it, the Broncos open the 2017 season against that very team on Monday night.
It’s human nature to want to make a statement to not only his former team, but the entire National Football League in his first game back with the Broncos. First he gets sidelined only eight games into the 2015 season, and then he tears his ACL after only one game into the 2016 season.
“Well I’m gray”, McCoy said with a laugh. “I can’t thank the Spanos family for everything and [for] the opportunity they gave me back in 2013 to lead their organization”. I understand the importance of the game being a division games, it’s our opener and it’s our home opener, playing in front of our greats fans and everything.
“I think I’ve answered plenty of questions, whether it’s the staff here or the players here for some tips”, McCoy told reporters on Friday.
Denver’s Von Miller, one of the best at getting into the backfield in the NFL, is certainly aided by a group of cornerbacks that Hayward called “probably the top trio in the league”. That’s why the Broncos will pay Williams $30,000 a week on the practice squad – a total that, if he stayed there all 17 weeks of the regular season, would be more than the rookie minimum on the roster. We’re excited here and that’s the thing now. “I’ve got a new home and we’re ready to go”.
