Rank was less than enthusiastic about writing about the Broncos to start, but ended up being surprised at how good the Broncos could be in 2019.Most of the national media talking heads have similar ideas about the Broncos. After two straight losing seasons it is hard to get too excited about the direction of the franchise. However, a deep dive actually points to big improvements over the course of the next two seasons.In examining the team, one of Rank’s big takeaways was about the offense being improved. Clearly, the defense needs to continue to be as good as they have been for the last few years. It’s really all about Joe Flacco and his impact on the team. These observations are obvious Andy Janovich Jersey , but they aren’t the only reason Denver could be improved.Another interesting aspect of Denver’s potential improvement was their “bucking the trend” when they hired Vic Fangio to be the head coach.
