Personally, I can’t see how we could possibly do better; the zone blocking scheme asks personnel to do a completely different job than a more traditional blocking system, with an emphasis on agility rather than on bulk. Our personnel are geared toward that.
And they’ve been very successful. Depending upon the statistics you look at, they were either the best offensive line in football or the second best last season, and that was with a rookie and a might-as-well-be a rookie on the ends. If there’s any single group on the Denver Broncos that you absolutely, positively do not want to blow up, it’s the offensive line.
During the press conference it wasn’t clear but it sounded like the zone blocking scheme might go. But McJosh turned around on that a little later:
“We use a lot of the same blocking schemes and run-game schemes that they’ve used. I know they get a lot of attention for that and it’s something you don’t look to pull the plug on unless you have something better to do. So we’re going to see.”
Now, in my eyes, I don’t see where you’re going to have something better to do, not with the personnel group we have, and why would you want to change out the personnel we have? Clady was named 2nd All-Pro, and that’s a big deal in a left tackle. And Harris got a vote for that team too. The only thing you have to worry about in the near future is how long Wiegmann can keep going.
