Vic Fangio on the biggest hole Broncos need to address
The Denver Broncos have had trouble passing the ball in recent weeks and Vic Fangio believes that is what is holding the team back. Following Denver’s blowout loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, Fangio uttered that the Broncos need to improve their efficiency in the passing game.
“As a team we need to fix our entire passing game,” the Broncos coach said, via Mike Klis of KUSA. “We just haven’t thrown it very efficiently the last two weeks. That’s an 11-man operation. That’s us as coaches. We’re all in it together and we’ve got to go to work on that. It has to improve no doubt about it. And as the quarterback he’s the main focus as always but I think we have to keep in mind it is an 11-man operation and us as coaches are involved too. And we’ve got to make improvements there, there’s no two ways about that.”
Over the past two weeks, Drew Lock has combined to complete only 34 of his 64 attempts for 443 yards and four interceptions for the Broncos. In his defense, he had to face the New England Patriots on the road, and the reigning Super Bowl champions in the snow.
Still, the recent performances from Lock haven’t exactly shed a positive light on his future as Denver’s starting quarterback. Despite his underwhelming play from under center, Fangio made it clear that the honus doesn’t just fall on him, and the coaches have to do better to put him into positions to succeed.
Lock and Denver’s aerial attack will look to find their groove against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 8.
