Broncos growing frustrated with offensive scheme

Broncos fire OC McCoy promote Musgrave

In a case of likely too little, too late, the Denver Broncos have tried to right their offense by firing offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.

Musgrave, 50, was the Oakland Raiders' offensive coordinator in 2015 and 2016, leading the unit to a top-10 finish in 2016.

McCoy was in his first season back with the Broncos as offensive coordinator after four seasons as head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

In his attempt to improve that pass game efficiency, Musgrave will start with a huge challenge as it appears Paxton Lynch, ready or not, will become the third starting quarterback in five weeks when the Broncos play the Raiders in the Black Hole this Sunday.

"When we changed from Trevor to Brock, my goal was to stabilize the offense and not turn the ball over as much, " Joseph said Monday. "You have to have that", Joseph said, while pinpointing the exact reason why he made a drastic change during his rookie season.

The Broncos (3-7) are mired in a six-game skid, and McCoy had increasingly drawn scrutiny for his overly complex game plans and insistence on using three wide receivers as his base formation to both pass and run, even though the vast majority of the Broncos' penalties, sacks and turnovers have come out of that formation.

Expenses to live are higher. "That food bank is basically run on public generosity - donations, food drives", he said. In addition, Dobbs said anyone interested in volunteering can contact Lyndsey Whyte at 705-474-7859.

The Broncos hired McCoy in January to replace offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.

"I'm disappointed that things didn't work out because this is a special organization and a great place to be", McCoy said in a statement from the Broncos. So, the game against the Raiders would be three months since he last saw the field in a preseason game, and almost a full calendar year since he played for keeps. He scrapped an offense midseason for Tim Tebow in 2011 and the following season helped Peyton Manning transition to his new team as he began a spectacularly successful comeback following neck fusion surgery.

For the second time in 11 months, National Football League coach Mike McCoy is out of a job. Despite still sporting one of the better defensive units in the league, the Broncos troubles are now stemming from what appears to be a sluggish offensive scheme.

He did that despite an offensive line struggling with pass rushers and beset by injuries.

Joseph stressed that he wasn't scapegoating McCoy for Denver's myriad problems.

"You know, Mike didn't fumble the ball, " Joseph said. Osweiler threw four interceptions in his three losses.
