7. Best coaching hire for the Denver Broncos: Eric Bieniemy, OC, Kansas City Chiefs
One of the major issues with the Denver Broncos is their lack of offense. Of course, it starts with the quarterback play.
Peyton Manning’s shadow still looms since John Elway failed to land a signal-caller. Now, new general manager George Paton doesn’t have a head coach. Getting a quarterback-friendly high-octane play-caller is something the Broncos need.
Bieniemy received praise for his play-calling. It’s widely assumed Andy Reid is the only brains behind the Chiefs’ offense, but Bieniemy’s role has expanded. We’ve seen what he can do with weapons, and the Broncos have a loaded roster.
It starts with their two-headed monster, Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon. Then they have stars at wideout. Courtland Sutton is a big target who dominates the boundary. Jerry Jeudy makes plays after the catch and stretches the field.
Noah Fant is an athletic big tight end and reliable target. Defensively, they have solid players at every level, with Patrick Surtain Jr. leading their secondary.
If the Broncos can get a quarterback in their Bieniemy can get the best out of him. Free-agent Ryan Fitzpatrick could come in and mentor a quarterback like Desmond Rattler, who’d kill it in Bieniemy’s system.
