Broncos offense steals most of the 8th day discrimination reel

On the eighth day, the Broncos offense set off some fireworks.

Wearing the pads again, Broncos finished Thursday’s training with the red zone working, specifically using the two-minute drills.

Position: Russell Wilson and offensive take over with a time of 1:48 to play on their 20-yard line, trailing 14-10, with a two time slot.

Rose Wilson and Crime.

The final drive featured the Wilson – Sutton Special, gaining 34 yards on 4 and 4. The trip then ended with an 18-yard touchdown pass to Trey Quinn.

“Two minutes [offense]“One of the hardest things about taking on an entirely new offense,” said head coach Nathaniel Hackett, noting the difficulty of getting everyone on the same page. “It’s all happening really fast, trying to process situations and all that stuff.”

But thanks to Wilson, the last play was what it was.

“It was great working with Ross through that guy and watching him. He called this last play so great and it hit him with a touchdown,” Hackett said. “It’s just one of those things. You always want to see the progression. You always want to see guys improve slowly but surely. that was good. We have a long way to go, but it was really cool to see.”

Hackett explained that his relationship with Wilson consisted in working together on the design of the play, but eventually letting the veteran make a change or call his own play as he saw fit. The coach says he likes to “sow the seeds” with play suggestions but in the end Wilson sees what’s going on on the field and knows what he can do.

“We’ve collaborated on a list of things we want to try and some plays we want to get on, especially if we’re going down the field in big chunks. I give him those. We talk about it, and then he deals with it,” Hackett added. “I’m always in his ear.” Kind of, but that’s his choice — whatever he’s feeling.”

Whatever number 3 was feeling well because Hackett admitted that Sutton’s long completion in 4 and 4 wasn’t the designed play.

“Yeah, that was kind of funny. That was pretty cool,” said Hackett, adding that they had something else in mind, but there was a misunderstanding and suddenly it turned into a different play.” Sometimes, great plays happen. [That was] A whole new play. Cortland – wow – he ran a beautiful trail. I love how he sorted it out and Ross did a great job. We had protection up front, he crept to the left and had an explosion.”

But the attack as a whole was explosive throughout the day as Wilson also completed the drop to rising tight end Greg Dolch, rising wide receiver Montrell Washington and new addition (as of Thursday morning) Darrius Shepherd.

Shepherd’s play is, in effect, a choice for the recipient to either stay or go.

Hackett explained that Chip – whom he knew from his days in Green Bay – had no intention of staying.

“My ‘gray’ man decided he was going. He wasn’t thinking of anything else,” Hackett said.

The coach explained that the real beauty of that play is the ability of the offenders to pull it. As a timing game, it’s not always easy – especially when facing a defensive back like Patrick Serten, who has broken off from the same play before with Courtland Sutton.

“What was great was the timing of the midfielder,” Hackett said. “To be able to get that is a perfect cadence by the quarterback – great protection, and there was no hesitation. And yes, he took it home. He’s so funny. That was his first play, and everyone was pissed off. get it.”

But while the attack had its best day since training camp began just over a week ago, the defense still had some plays. some adults.

Rookie cornerback Damari Matisse, who has been having a great camp by all accounts, has captured an inner wits to keep him interesting between attack and defence. Rookie Damari Matisse has proven to be a worthy mention among the defensive backs.

Although Hackett is an offensive man first, he noted that being a HEAD coach allows him to be happy in all the plays.

And he’s really happy with what this team is headed for.

“I thought we were getting better every day,” Hackett said, noting that Wednesday’s rest day was better than expected. We got more plays [in] From what we expected and the men were mentally able to learn….that’s what you’re looking for. You never want to go out and waste a day in pads. They are so precious, we don’t have a lot of them.”

Hackett added that this schedule is very similar to the regular season anyway, with only a few days in the pads. For a coach, it’s often more about quality than quantity.

And he loves watching both sides flourish.

“I am happy to see both sides of the ball playing though. That’s what you want,” he said. “You want explosive plays and you want the defense to take the ball away. The cool thing about my position is that I’m going to celebrate all of this – I don’t need to be angry. “
