McCoy, Broncos Committed to Balance

Posted Sep 8, 2011

Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy is prepared to utilize his rushing attack and his offense hopes to benefit from a more experienced offensive line.


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Balance has been the early buzzword around the 2011 Broncos offense.

It applies to the way in which Head Coach John Fox wants to attack defenses with an even blend of run and pass, and it can also be applied to the desired workload among the running backs.

Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy has two capable tailbacks to deploy in Knowshon Moreno and Willis McGahee and he said both will see their fair share of action on game days.

And while a balanced workload is key to keeping both runners fresh through four quarters, it's the players themselves who will be a decisive factor in determining whose number gets called in certain situations.

"We're going to roll them," McCoy said. "They're going to play and if one of them is tired, the other one is going in. Then we'll just keep them going. Both of them are going to play plenty of snaps, but we're not going to worry about counting snaps with them.

"If someone is in there playing and they're on a roll, then they're going to stay in," he continued. "When they need to come out, then they're going to come out. That's the way we've done it in the past with Coach Fox - just let the players play. … They both can do everything and we're fortunate to have both of them."

McCoy made it clear Moreno and McGahee will have a lot of responsibility in his offense.

The Broncos coaching staff has continually stressed the importance of a consistent ground game, especially in key situations.

"We're going to commit to the run game, No. 1, and the players understand that," McCoy said. "You have to run the football in this game to win. If you're one-dimensional, they'll shut you down and then whether you're ahead or behind and you can't do the other part, you're going to struggle. We've committed to running the football here.

"We've put in a lot of time in training camp, and those situational periods - we've spent a ton of time in the red area, short-yardage, goal-line, third-down emphasis, that's in there almost every practice and training camp, so we've worked hard at it, and we're going to give it our best shot."

In addition to the steadfast commitment to the run game and the capable running backs, a crucial factor in the success of the Broncos' balanced offense will be the play of the offensive line.

Four of the five starters return this season -- with second-round pick Orlando Franklin serving as the lone newcomer at right tackle.

The continuity up front between established veterans Ryan Clady and Chris Kuper and emerging second-year players Zane Beadles and J.D. Walton has allowed the line to develop chemistry and reach a new comfort level.

"With calls it's easy to communicate for them. They just know each other," McCoy said of the O-line. "They know what they're going to do. They know certain calls. When you're young, like we were last year, some of those calls that you want to make, you can't really make right away, you just have to adjust on the fly after the ball is snapped."

"Now they've got a number of snaps in their back pocket."
