Get to Know: Dave Magazu

Posted Aug 22, 2012

Offensive Line Coach Dave Magazu talks about his position group's versatility, the importance of continuity and the effect of quarterback Peyton Manning.


Editor's Note: This coach Q&A ran in the 9/18 Gameday program, when the Broncos took on the Seattle Seahawks.

How important is continuity on the offensive line?
"I think it's a positive because the guys have worked together. They know each other. They know the terminology. It's easy to communicate because they are like one right now. We have some other guys who can fill in if we get a little nicked up here and there. All of those guys have been together and that's nothing but a positive, because one of the biggest things is communication and being on the same page, and I think we're there. We communicate much better today compared to the same time last year."

What does the signing of QB Peyton Manning mean for the offensive line?
"I think Peyton brings a lot of communication and a lot of knowledge to the game. The one thing you look for your quarterback to do from an offensive line standpoint is to paint a picture of what we're getting and getting everybody on the same page. I think he does a great job of that. The lines of communication are constant during the game and on the field and on the line of scrimmage. He does a great job of communicating and painting that picture for the guys up front."

What have you seen from the offensive line since the pads went on during training camp?
"I think we've made progress from last year. What we said when we came in here as a group, we're going to have to crawl before we can walk, walk before we can run, so we're going to continue to get better. I thought as a group, we improved as last year went on. There's still a lot of room for improvement and we're hoping to get to that next level."

How important is it for offensive linemen to be able to play multiple positions along the line?
"The NFL is different. It doesn't matter how many linemen you carry. On gameday, you usually dress seven. So those extra two guys, and some guys on your starting group, they need to be able to play more than one position to give you added depth. You have to have the ability to move guys around. They have to be able to play more than one position. Even with the starters, we have a couple guys that are dabbling at other positions for emergency purposes, or the wheels fall off, or for whatever. So we're trying to train some guys at more than one position. That brings you some added depth. I also think it helps a guy that plays more than one position to see some of the problems that other guys have."
