Now he looks to make an impact in 2022 as a receiver.</p> <p id="nsMq1f">His name will live forever in Broncos Country. </p> <p id="P2mW1t"><a href="">Denver Broncos</a> receiver Kendall Hinton never needs to play another down in the Mile High City and fans will remember what he did for the organization back in 2020. </p> <p id="UOnmCd">It was then that Hinton was forced to play quarterback for the Broncos against the <a href="https://www.canalstreetchronicles.com/">New Orleans Saints</a>. While the game and the performance went as you would expect, Hinton kept getting up and never gave up. </p> <p id="DVJLXG">For that, Hinton will always have a place in the hearts of Broncos fans.</p> <p id="UWFHyY">But now, the second-year receiver wants to add to that and become a regular contributor to Denver’s offense.</p> <h3 id="DtuVQ4">#9 Kendall Hinton </h3> <ul> <li id="T9cnwb">Position: Receiver </li> <li id="SxHX6m">Height: 6-0</li> <li id="0nuFFb">Weight: 195</li> <li id="MteJpp">Age: 25</li> <li id="0YJFAP">Experience: Second year </li> <li id="PjWrWV">College: <a href="https://www.bloggersodear.com">Wake Forest</a> </li> </ul> <h2 id="sFZZpP">How he fits with the Broncos</h2> <p id="5Sqe7z">The task for Hinton to make the roster is a challenge. </p> <p id="gBbS1V">A lot of it will come down to how many receivers general manager George Paton and head coach Nathaniel Hackett decided to carry on the 2022 roster. </p> <p id="K5KFPg">There are four locks in Courtland Sutton, Tim Patrick, Jerry Jeudy and KJ Hamler. You would think recently drafted rookie Montrell Washington makes the roster as a returner. But does he take a receiver spot? </p> <p id="e7Gpdo">Either way, if the Broncos go with six or seven receivers, that would leave between one-three roster spots. </p> <p id="sS1HPz">My guess, for whatever it’s worth, is Hinton makes the roster in 2022. </p> <p id="tuLT4D">As Russell Wilson recently told the media about Hinton: </p> <p id="mBzuCF">“Kendall is doing an amazing job. He has a special gift — his gift of getting open, his wiggle and his ability to accelerate and make plays. I remember watching the film, and there was a certain game — it was the Cowboys game. He caught a skinny post route and just took off. His ability to get open, his ability to make plays near the red zone and how he catches it —he’s got that football instinct. </p> <p id="fy3ioo">“It’s the quarterback in him. I’ve watched him play and how he even had to step into the game that one day. That’s kind of crazy to do. People don’t understand how hard this position is, and for him to be able to do that the next day is a challenging thing. He’s a competitor, and I think all the guys are competing their butts off.” </p> <h2 id="FRhkwx">Final Word </h2> <p id="zJuVIi">Hinton will always hold a fond place in the memories of Broncos Country. </p> <p id="qvxWyC">The competitor and drive in him is special, and it’s why he will ultimately make the roster in 2022. And it’ll be exciting to see the impact Hinton can make on the Broncos as a receiver. </p> <div id="7Yr6TJ"><div data-anthem-component="poll:11296992"></div></div> /2022/6/19/23174006/broncos-roster-kendall-hinton Ian St. Clair 2022-06-19T04:00:00-06:00 2022-06-19T04:00:00-06:00 नेवालdeepsainiMile High Report - All Posts - sk sabir boss id <figure> <img alt="Colorado Avalanche vs Edmonton Oilers Game Two NHL Western Conference Finals" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/KYIUn63-bEHqNHbDN8Q6ER73FFA=/0x0:7101x4734/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/70992675/1400886481.0.jpg" /> <figcaption>Photo by Andy Cross/MediaNews Group/The Denver Post via Getty Images</figcaption> </figure> <p>The Avs run to the Stanley Cup Final could serve as even more motivation to make the coming NFL season a success for the Broncos.</p> <h2 id="NjTxSp">Happy Father’s Day to the Broncos Country dads!</h2> <p id="6kqIRz">For the first time in 21 years, the <a href="https://www.milehighhockey.com">Colorado Avalanche</a> are back in the <a href="http://www.sbnation.com/stanley-cup-final">Stanley Cup Final</a>. </p> <p id="OQPZqi">While it hasn’t been <em>that </em>long since the <a href="">Denver Broncos</a> were in the <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/super-bowl">Super Bowl</a>, it feels like it’s been that long since the Broncos were in the Super Bowl. </p> <p id="hHXKZo">Since the Avs started their run for their third <a href="http://www.sbnation.com/nhl-playoffs">Stanley Cup</a>, various members of Denver’s organization have been in Ball Arena to support the local hockey team. </p> <p id="ePGogl">From Russell Wilson and Ciara to Broncos coach Nathaniel Hackett, seeing the Broncos cheer on Colorado has been awesome. </p> <div id="kCDV1y"> <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-captioned="" data-instgrm-permalink="https://www.instagram.com/tv/Ce2dE9QFPFv/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" data-instgrm-version="14" style=" background:#FFF;

No doubt. I’ve gone to every series leading up to the Stanley Cup (on Wednesday). Just to hear how electric it is in there, I can’t wait to hear that and see that sea of orange when we are back in our home stadium and playing in big-time games. I can’t wait.” </p> <p id="Ej4yXP">It’s not just Simmons. </p> <p id="dhGUMs">The success of the Avs, and even the <a href="https://www.denverstiffs.com">Denver Nuggets</a>, makes Hackett hungrier to bring success back to the Broncos. </p> <p id="NYcz8T">“No doubt,” he recently said to the media. “Going to that Avs game — it was absolutely electric. Everybody talks about it. They say, ‘It’s a great atmosphere, it’s so crazy.’ When you got there, the fans are into it. After a goal, what some of the people were yelling at the players — it was unbelievable. Looking at all these different avenues, I’ve gotten to go to quite a bit of them and I’m excited to go to many more, too. </p> <p id="7RiB7E">“To be able to bring that to the Denver Broncos and bring that energy and bring that juice — that’s what we need, what we want and what we want to be a part of because we’re the Denver Broncos. We want to bring it because what’s going on in that arena when the Avalanche play is unbelievable.

With a new coaching staff, does Harris have a chance at making the Broncos’ roster in 2022? </p> <h3 id="gNxDFG">#92 Jonathan Harris</h3> <h4 id="ra6C72"> <strong>Height: 6’5</strong><br><strong>Weight: 295 lbs</strong><br><strong>Position: Defensive End</strong><br><strong>College: Lindenwood</strong><br><strong>Experience: 3 years</strong> </h4> <h3 id="ruh7rY">How he fits with the Broncos in 2022</h3> <p id="BwwIV4">Harris hasn’t been a significant contributor for the Broncos so far in his career, having just 184-snaps in a Broncos uniform since 2019. Working in as a rotational defensive end in sub packages, Harris appeared in 3 games for the team in 2022. Harris mostly played in the week 17 and week 18 matchups vs the <a href="https://www.boltsfromtheblue.com/">Los Angeles Chargers</a> and <a href="https://www.arrowheadpride.com">Kansas City Chiefs</a>, filling in for DeShawn Williams (IR) and McTelvin Agim (COVID). </p> <p id="kfkmQN">Harris earned the praise of Vic Fangio after the Chargers game and has new defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero “excited” but his film last year, even in the Chargers game, wasn’t exactly disruptive or exciting. He struggled to generate enough push in the run game, oftentimes giving up too much ground. He amassed a grand total of 1 pressure and 1 QB hit, which came after the ball was loose versus the Chargers. </p> <p id="oov0Vr">Harris was out-snapped last year by 5 different defensive ends, and the team added Eyioma Uwazurike and Matt Henningsen in the draft. While Denver isn’t super deep up front, that’s still problematic in figuring out just how he earns a spot on the roster. Paton didn’t sign him, and the previous coaching staff kept him around as a pet project. </p> <h3 id="BD4Jlx">Final Words</h3> <p id="sCMbRs">Jonathan Harris didn’t make the final 53-man roster last year, and that was with Vic Fangio and company in town. With more depth along the defensive line and the lack of real impact so far in Denver, it feels like an incredible stretch to predict Harris has any sort of impact or makes the final 53. The team’s Shelby Harris replacement in base at 5T is Uwazurike, and their sub-package interior rusher rotation of Dre’Mont Jones, DeShawn Williams, Uwazurike, Agim, and Henningsen is better than what it was last year when they were throwing Shamar Stephen out there for 20-30 snaps a game. </p> /2022/6/18/23173315/denver-broncos-2022-roster-review-defensive-end-jonathan-harris AJ Schulte 2022-06-18T14:06:10-06:00 2022-06-18T14:06:10-06:00 नेवालdeepsainiMile High Report - All Posts - sk sabir boss id <figure> <img alt="NFL: Denver Broncos Minicamp" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/5BWAdo228P8NI8b5KN5GBCP3ARM=/0x427:3195x2557/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/70991793/usa_today_18532104.0.jpg" /> <figcaption>Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports</figcaption> </figure> <p>Is there hope for young inaccurate starting quarterbacks?</p> <p id="67FQ13">I have always been interested in how players develop in the NFL. One of the easiest groups to track their development is quarterbacks, because there is so much data to analyze. After years of wandering in the <a href="/2021/6/11/22527578/the-desert-and-the-oasis-of-quarterback-play-in-the-32-team-era">quarterback desert</a> the Broncos seem to have found the oasis with Russell Wilson. I have wondered (and written) much about how NFL quarterbacks can develop, but I have never used the data from <a href="http://SISdatahub.com">SISdatahub.com</a> to do this level of analysis. </p> <p id="7ihByA">I watched a recent YouTube video where a football analyst was trying to say that <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuJP1OG9Y2I&amp;ab_channel=EastCoastGridiron">Drew Lock could be the next Drew Brees</a>. After catching my breath and getting back off the floor from laughing so hard, I decided to help this guy do a more thorough analysis of this absurd line of thought. Can Drew Lock, an inaccurate passer, become like Drew Brees, an extremely accurate passer? </p> <p id="SFmZ0c">Let’s look into the data, but first let’s point out one glaring weakness in this guy’s thought process - the general lack of historic context. </p> <p id="ZWBoXG">Drew Brees began his career during a year when the NFL was completing 59.0 percent of passes and the TD:INT ratio was 1.17:1. When Drew Lock started his NFL career in 2019, the league was was completing 63.5 of all passes and the TD:INT ratio was 1.94:1. QB play progressed quite dramatically in the almost twenty years between the entry of both men into the NFL so comparing Brees’ stats in his first 21 starts to Lock’s is comparing apples to kumquats (yes, that’s a real fruit). It’s safe to say that there were many more inaccurate passes thrown in the NFL in 2000 than there were in 2021. This line of thought got me asking the question about how often do inaccurate quarterbacks turn into accurate quarterbacks while in the NFL? To do this I looked at the catchable pass rate which is a stat available (surprisingly) free at <a href="http://sisdatahub.com">sisdatahub.com</a>. (They do make it harder to scrub the data from their free access version though.) </p> <p id="dFEKSb">The best of the best in terms of catchable passes (accuracy), throw 90 percent as catchable passes. <a href="https://www.sisdatahub.com/glossary">SIS watches each pass to determine whether they deem it catchable</a>. Their data covers 2015-2021. The worst starters are in the 75-78 range. The best single season value for a QB with 150 or more passes was, <em>I shit you not</em>, Trevor, arm-of-the-gods, Siemian, in 2021, who had a catchable pass rate of 90.4 percent. If you cut that minimum attempts number down to 50 passes, you find that Colt McCoy has the best value at 92.5 in 2021 (on 109 drop-backs). But let’s look at the trends in the data to see what value we can find here in terms of answering the larger questions about passing accuracy progression while in the league. </p> <p id="AlvSRy">Catchable pass rate (accuracy)</p> <ul> <li id="bmt139">elite - 90-88</li> <li id="ybNMYp">above average - 86-88</li> <li id="XD2OlF">average - 83-86</li> <li id="sSX1hy">below average - 80-83</li> <li id="TfsuLv">poor - less than 80</li> </ul> <p id="yKueTw">For me catchable pass rate is the best measure of QB accuracy and so I will use accuracy and catchable rate interchangeably throughout this work. </p> <p id="WtnFZ7"><strong>Do quarterbacks get more accurate as they gain experience or do most guys just come into the league with an ability to throw accurately? </strong></p> <p id="qei7Hh">To answer the second question we will focus on the starting QBs (min 300 attempts) who have had really accurate years and try to determine how they got there. Were they always that accurate or did they have to work to get there? </p> <p id="5Ltn0d">Among starters from 2015 to 2021, there are only seven QBs who threw 88 percent catchable passes or better in a season:</p> <ul> <li id="t17Zmg">Drew Brees</li> <li id="4aw0Xo">Joe Burrow</li> <li id="q7AEm3">Kirk Cousins</li> <li id="3Suw2b">DeShaun Watson</li> <li id="tkpT3F">Matt Ryan</li> <li id="LwFNHd">Aaron Rodgers</li> <li id="JrzWnc">Sam Bradford</li> </ul> <p id="VybEIK">Since Brees, Ryan, Rodgers and Bradford were all well into their careers in 2015, let’s focus on the other three QBs who were not as established in 2015 (if they were in the league at all). </p> <p id="EFEZbJ">Joe Burrow entered the league with elite accuracy. His first two NFL seasons he has had catchable pass rates of 88.8 and 90.1. </p> <p id="xSebW2">Kirk Cousins got his first year as a starter in 2015. So the vast majority of his development arc is contained in his data which can be seen in the table below. </p> <div id="gS6G0A"><table> <tbody> <tr> <td>QB</td> <td>Year 1</td> <td>Year 2</td> <td>Year 3</td> <td>Year 4</td> <td>Year 5</td> <td>Year 6</td> <td>Year 7</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Newton</td> <td>81.9</td> <td>78.3</td> <td>79.2</td> <td>85.1</td> <td>69.9</td> <td>83.6</td> <td>76.5</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Winston</td> <td>78.5</td> <td>78.2</td> <td>81.1</td> <td>82.5</td> <td>77.6</td> <td>63.6</td> <td>80.6</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Cousins</td> <td>85.4</td> <td>82.9</td> <td>82.2</td> <td>87.1</td> <td>87.5</td> <td>89.1</td> <td>87.1</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Brady</td> <td>82.0</td> <td>84.5</td> <td>82.8</td> <td>83.3</td> <td>82.1</td> <td>83.9</td> <td>83.7</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Stafford</td> <td>82.5</td> <td>85.9</td> <td>82.0</td> <td>84.1</td> <td>80.2</td> <td>83.2</td> <td>83.3</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Dalton</td> <td>81.8</td> <td>84.6</td> <td>83.2</td> <td>84.0</td> <td>80.6</td> <td>83.8</td> <td>83.9</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Rodgers</td> <td>79.4</td> <td>83.1</td> <td>83.9</td> <td>80.9</td> <td>83.7</td> <td>88.3</td> <td>85.7</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Goff</td> <td>80.4</td> <td>77.7</td> <td>84.7</td> <td>79.6</td> <td>84.1</td> <td>86.4</td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Wentz</td> <td>82.4</td> <td>82.4</td> <td>86.2</td> <td>81.3</td> <td>76.8</td> <td>84.3</td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Brees</td> <td>84.2</td> <td>88.8</td> <td>88.9</td> <td>90.2</td> <td>90.0</td> <td>87.6</td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Mahomes</td> <td>78.8</td> <td>82.8</td> <td>82.2</td> <td>85.3</td> <td>84.6</td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Allen</td> <td>78.1</td> <td>79.5</td> <td>84.6</td> <td>83.0</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Mayfield</td> <td>83.0</td> <td>80.2</td> <td>83.7</td> <td>81.3</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Darnold</td> <td>81.0</td> <td>83.3</td> <td>82.3</td> <td>87.8</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Jackson</td> <td>79.7</td> <td>84.3</td> <td>84.1</td> <td>82.4</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Watson</td> <td>78.7</td> <td>82.2</td> <td>82.5</td> <td>88.7</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Murray</td> <td>82.6</td> <td>85.7</td> <td>87.2</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Jones</td> <td>82.7</td> <td>83.0</td> <td>83.9</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Burrow</td> <td>88.8</td> <td>90.1</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td>Herbert</td> <td>84.7</td> <td>87.1</td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td></td> </tr> </tbody> </table></div> <h5 id="9EdY8t">This table is just a small slice of the 204 QB seasons 2015-2021 in which a QB has thrown 300 or more passes. </h5> <p id="PEJWID">The table above but with color coding which is exceedingly difficult to do in HTML.</p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/jKYoK7vD39-lZVpuEqsYQLEeyaY=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/23635063/catchable_progress.png"> </figure> <p id="6moPJg">For Cousins, it would appear that he was fairly accurate from the start (85.4 in 2015 - year 1 for him) and after two years of mild regression, he improved some to the 87-89 range (elite) during the last three seasons. </p> <p id="yi4O91">For Deshaun Watson the improvement was much more of a change the other two. His first season in the league he had a catchable pass rate of 78.7 (poor) and he has improved upon that every year since to the point where in 2020 he was one of the most accurate passers in the league (by catchable rate). So of the elite accuracy guys, only Watson went from “inaccurate” to “accurate” while in the league. </p> <p id="tQ7LxU">There are a few other examples of “inaccurate” passers becoming better over time. </p> <p id="VRrtTc">Sam Darnold was below average for his first three seasons and then dramatically improved in his fourth year. </p> <p id="9A0w0i">Josh Allen improved slightly from year 1 to year 2, but then made a huge jump in year 3. He regressed a little in year four, but not by too much. </p> <p id="ZmlIJj">Patrick Mahomes might appear to have improved greatly from year 1 to year 2, but his year 1 was a tiny sample size (35 attempts). I almost didn’t include that in the table. He appears to be somewhere in the 83-85 range as his norm (average or above average). </p> <p id="ZKDwl9">Lamar Jackson made a huge jump from year 1 to year 2 going from 79.7 to 84.3. This was actually a larger jump than Watson made. </p> <p id="217csU">Kyler Murray has progressed steadily from 82.6 to 85.7 to 87.2 during his first three seasons. It will be interesting to see if he ascends to truly elite levels of accuracy (Burrow accuracy) in his fourth season or if 87 is his ceiling. </p> <p id="NJyH3u">I’m sure if you want to look you can find other examples of guys who progress, but from what I have seen in this (admittedly small slice) most guys don’t go move up more than one category while in the NFL. In other words, if your accuracy is below average when you enter the league, it’s most likely that you are never going to be consistently above average. </p> <p id="QjNEEh">Let’s also get something out of the way before it gets discussed in the comments - being accurate does not necessarily make you a good QB. Look no further than Siemian for that. When he was actually a starter, his catchable rates were both not good (81.1 and 80.5). The fact that he was able to throw accurately for the Saints in 2021, means that he improved relative to 2016 and 2017, but he’s never going to be a viable NFL starter - accurate or not. Back to the discussion...</p> <p id="d6XQAR">Here’s a full color coded list for all QBs with 150 or more passes in 2021 showing both catchable rate and on-target rate. Note that catchable is in almost all cases the higher value for a player. </p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/1I3nXyOIs7b07-ATZd39kl8gNbI=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/23635600/catchable_and_ont_2021_min_150.png"> </figure> <p id="M1oqrb">Note the guys who are green in the Catchable minus On Target (C-OnT) are the guys who got the least amount of help from the catch radius of their receivers. Guys like Zach Wilson and Jacoby Brissett were frequently off-target, but many of those off-target throws were still catchable. Whereas Kyler Murray and Tyrod Taylor had on-target values that were not that far below their catchable values for 2021 - even when Murray was quite accurate and Taylor was the least accurate passer in the league in 2021. FWIW Drew Lock had an on-target of 74.7 and catchable on 84.8 on 127 throws in 2021. </p> <p id="8h5StE"></p> <h2 id="Ywg6xl">The Inaccurate Guys</h2> <p id="eITna5">So let’s shift the discussion a bit to the least accurate seasons during this seven year window (min 150 throws). Only one of them occurred in 2021 (Tyrod Taylor). </p> <div id="lrXReV"><table> <tbody> <tr> <td>Player</td> <td>Year</td> <td>Team</td> <td>Dropbacks</td> <td>On Target</td> <td>Catchable</td> <td>On target %</td> <td>Catchable %</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Cam Newton</td> <td>2016</td> <td>Panthers</td> <td>556</td> <td>367</td> <td>378</td> <td>76.0</td> <td>78.3</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Jameis Winston</td> <td>2016</td> <td>Buccaneers</td> <td>636</td> <td>413</td> <td>428</td> <td>75.5</td> <td>78.2</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Josh Allen</td> <td>2018</td> <td>Bills</td> <td>398</td> <td>212</td> <td>232</td> <td>71.4</td> <td>78.1</td> </tr> <tr> <td>C.J.

Beathard, David Blough and Deshone Kizer. All four were only starters in the league for one season. They were all so bad that none of them got another shot at starting full-time. One of the reasons for that was how inaccurate they were. One player that is not on this list of thirteen guys is Drew Lock. His worst season from an accuracy standpoint (catchable) was 79.0 so he avoided this list (although I could have been mean and expanded it to include QB seasons with catchable rates of 79.0 or worse). </p> <p id="n2WVay">The poster boy for inaccuracy would be Jameis Winston (more of this later). He came into the league with poor accuracy and peaked at below average. Pay very little attention to his year 6 data - that is 2020 when he threw 11 passes. </p> <p id="jKcsFl">For those who still care about Lock, he did show a marked improvement in his catchable rate in 2021 (84.8) relative to 2020 (79.0). With his arm strength, he has the potential to be a really good QB if his accuracy doesn’t regress in 2022. There’s also the other problem that Lock has - too many of those uncatchable balls are all too catchable by the defense. So Lock is never going to be Brees, whose stock and trade was always his accuracy, but he doesn’t have to be to be successful as an NFL starter. He simply needs to make fewer terrible throws. </p> <p id="4BVQjy">One of the things we haven’t discussed yet is how far off any uncatchable throws <em>actually are</em>. If a QB throws an uncatchable ball that lands 15 yards out of bounds, it’s merely an ugly incompletion, but if that uncatchable pass sails five feet over the head of the intended receiver who is in the middle of the field, there is a good chance that uncatchable ball becomes an interception. Lock has thrown far too many of those during his career. So let’s stop talking about former Bronco QBs and move to our current starting QB. </p> <p id="xmiHNe">Russell Wilson actually had his worst season in many aspects in 2021. One of those was catchable rate. Wilson’s catchable rates by year:</p> <ul> <li id="xTvAU3">2015 - 85.8</li> <li id="JQB74x">2016 - 85.3 </li> <li id="9MI7E6">2017 - 87.0</li> <li id="8NOLvG">2018 - 83.8</li> <li id="8fe1rA">2019 - 84.8</li> <li id="xxkJw3">2020 - 86.8</li> <li id="HGpdFN">2021 - 82.9</li> </ul> <p id="EazpIz">So while it was on significantly fewer dropbacks, Drew Lock was more accurate than Russell Wilson in 2021. So Lock at his best was better than Wilson at his worst. What remains to be seen is whether or not this is the start of a gradual decline for Wilson (I doubt it) or whether he will return to his normal mid 80s catchable rate in 2022 and beyond. </p> <p id="3qMICm">If you look at the catchable rates for other veterans in their mid to late 30s, you find that most continue to be accurate even as they start to lose the battle with Father Time. Tom Brady was as accurate in 2021 as he was in 2015. Brees had elite accuracy (88 or better) in four of his final six seasons. Matt Ryan has been 84.6 or better in every seasons of the last seven. <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2019/4/16/18295462/eli-manning-philip-rivers-trade-2004-nfl-draft-giants-chargers-aj-smith-ernie-accorsi">Philip Rivers</a>, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning all ostensibly maintained their catchable ball percentages as they aged. </p> <p id="7l1AVH">So we should expect RW to bounce back to his normal range in the mid 80s in 2022, particularly with Nathaniel Hackett calling the plays. With Hackett as the OC in Jacksonville 2016-2018, Blake Bortles had catchable ball rates of 82.5, 80.0 and 83.2 (career best). Rodgers catchable rate for the three seasons with Hackett as OC were 83.7, 88.3, and 85.7. With only seven seasons of data, that 88.3 is Rodgers’ best career number. </p> <p id="VaeHuF">Now I don’t know how much influence the play caller has on catchable pass rate, but it stands to reason that if Bortles and Rodgers can have career best rates under Hackett, RW should be able to at least get back to his “normal” rates. Below is a chart showing Russell Wilson’s results from 2015-2021. </p> <figure class="e-image"> <img alt=" " data-mask-text="false" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/MqNF_vOaDb4ZuEsYYpiIlMP_0TM=/400x0/filters:no_upscale()/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/23633321/RW_comparing_comp_ontarget_and_catchable.png"> </figure> <p id="OAAi3L">We should also note that even when RW had a bad year in terms of completion percentage (2017) his catchable rate has been fairly consistent over the last seven years and while his on-target rate has been declining since 2017. That doesn’t mean that I expect his on-target rate to continue to drop. I expect his on-target rate in 2022 to be north of 80 percent similar to 2020 and 2017. </p> <p id="qHJT27"></p> <p id="bA7c0n"> </p> <p id="hq1LSc"></p> /2022/6/18/23170996/can-quarterbacks-learn-to-be-accurate-while-in-the-nfl Joe Mahoney 2022-06-18T04:22:01-06:00 2022-06-18T04:22:01-06:00 नेवालdeepsainiMile High Report - All Posts - sk sabir boss id <figure> <img alt="President Obama Welcomes Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos To White House" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/tnm8trQJLHOPXfOJKy87oOrepRo=/0x0:2738x1825/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/70990527/538688620.0.jpg" /> <figcaption>Photo by Cheriss May/NurPhoto via Getty Images</figcaption> </figure> <p>Once upon a time, an MHR staffer called Super Bowl 50... In June!</p> <p id="7zlI1N">One of the great things about Mile High Report is that we so many contributors, you can’t help but produce an opinion that turns out to be right. Excuse us while we do a victory lap.</p> <p id="AZZxjs">Such was the case on this very day in 2015. Former staffer Big_Pete1999 called the Broncos shot with a <a href="/2015/6/18/8799695/super-bowl-50-2016-denver-broncos">5-point argument on how the Broncos will win Super Bowl 50</a>. Some of his arguments were absolutely spot-on. Others were somewhat hopeful in nature. </p> <blockquote> <p id="hxvu27">Number 5:</p> <p id="kagjE7"><strong>Our rookies will step up.</strong> Yes, I’m looking at you Shane Ray. You too Ty Sambrailo. You guys will be needed, especially Ty. While all teams would want to start their franchise with a top tier quarterback, most will quickly point out that they also need a top tier left tackle to protect the blindside. Having Aaron Rodgers won’t do you any good if he’s laying flat on his back and unable to get back up because he’s getting killed with every drop back. That’s why Ty MUST be the answer to left tackle. There’s no other option. The encouraging news is that DeMarcus Ware is saying that Ty is looking legit. Don’t look now, but our offensive line, while unproven and scary, might be coming together.</p> </blockquote> <p id="9xfjfk">Narrator: Ty Sambrailo did not step up and become a premier left tackle. Unfortunately, Ty’s 2015 season was cut short after just three games. It would be the following season that Broncos Country would get a disappointing look at him in 10 games before subsequently trading him to Atlanta for a 5th round draft pick. Sambrailo would go on to play for the Titans and announced his retirement in October 2021.</p> <p id="g6KPrc">Shane Ray, on the other hand, showed up in a support role that was decent for a rookie. He appeared in 14-games that year and started none of them. He notched 4-sacks, 15-solo tackles, 5-assisted tackles, and 5-tackles for loss. Ray would only play for 4-years and only with the Broncos. After a benchmark 2016 season injuries out keep him out of games in 2017 and 2018. It was always weird that he had a Chiefs tattoo on his arm.</p> <blockquote> <p id="O102bq">Number 4:</p> <p id="txYuS6"><strong>Our linebacking crew is straight stupid good.</strong> Remember how I said that Elway has done little to boost our linebacking corps? Well, like Arnold in Commando, “<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wk-jT9rn-8"><strong>I lied!</strong></a>” While I still question Danny Trevathan’s ability to overcome his knee issues and be the stud he has been for us, one thing can’t be questioned; Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, and Shane Ray are the real freaking deal.</p> <p id="2E466A">We will have a three headed quarterback wrecking crew. Not only will they put constant pressure on the opposing quarterback, but they are fast and athletic enough to cover the tight end, especially if T.J. Ward slides down in a support role.</p> </blockquote> <p id="FWMKKc">If you just read that and didn’t smile, you probably don’t remember the outcome of Super Bowl 50. If you sub out Shane Ray for Malik Jackson to that list of Pete’s, you’d have hit the trifecta. The Broncos defense from 2015 was perhaps the greatest in team history and was the reason Denver won their third championship. </p> <blockquote> <p id="a2JMLa">Number 3:</p> <p id="UEWqT4"><strong>Wade Phillips will have the Broncos in constant attack mode.</strong> Not only is Wade super aggressive, but he believes in having his players play in a system that they are comfortable with. That’s right, gone are the days of having amazing man cover corners only to see them play soft zone. Gone are the days of having fantastic pass rushers, only to seem them drop back into coverage. Gone are the days of playing a bend but don’t break (newsflash: they always break) defense.</p> </blockquote> <p id="dxVbfp">Man, wasn’t watching Wade’s defense so much fun? Big_Pete was absolutely correct. It’s not hyperbole saying that the 2015 Broncos had one of the greatest defenses of all time. It’s true because Wade Phillips did indeed have them attacking and disrupting. It was a marvelous thing to watch.</p> <blockquote> <p id="mE5jeF">Number 2:</p> <p id="xcgWnE"><strong>The Broncos are installing a balanced attack on offense.</strong> I’m not talking about a “Peyton is hurt, we need to start running the ball more” type offense midway through the season. No, I’m talking about a balanced offense by design, and implemented in the offseason. That’s the only way balanced offenses actually work. When you truly have a 50/50 split from day one, great things happen. Not only will #18 have less burden to bear, but any irregularities in his play will be covered up by the overall focus and effectiveness of the running game.</p> </blockquote> <p id="8CAMB6">Full disclosure: The Broncos offense in 2015 was not the greatest. All these years later, to hear people talk about it, the dominant feeling is that Kubiak’s offense stifled a hobbled Peyton Manning who was then asked, along with the defense, to bail the team out. However, there were moments of stunning offensive greatness in that season. Most notably the game at home against Green Bay on November 1, 2015 and the Sunday Night Football game at home against the <a href="https://www.patspulpit.com/">New England Patriots</a> on November 29. </p> <p id="qKbBJp">The game versus Green Bay was the most offensively explosive game of the season. Denver absolutely crushed Aaron Rodger’s <a href="https://www.acmepackingcompany.com/">Packers</a>, 29-10. Peyton Manning threw for 340-yards and both Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson combined for four touchdowns. </p> <p id="2Ip18D">If there was ever a game to support Big_Pete’s assertion of great things being borne from a day-one 50/50 split, it’s the iconic game under the lights in the snow at Mile High. It was because of the balance of that 2015 squad that the Broncos were able to overcome a 21-7 4th quarter deficit. Backup Brock Osweiler managed to throw it for 270 yards and a touchdown, while C.J. Anderson, the player no Broncos fan will ever forget streaking down the field for the overtime win) amassed 113-yards and 2 touchdowns. </p> <blockquote> <p id="2paSt5">Number 1:</p> <p id="Brr6eR"><strong>Because even if our defense struggles, or our running games struggles, we still have Peyton Freaking Manning!</strong> Allow me to channel my inner <a href="/2015/6/11/8766493/manning-is-not-bored-and-thats-a-very-good-thing"><strong>Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann</strong></a> and say, “In Manning We Trust.”</p> <p id="ThAg2r">Remember people, we have the greatest quarterback to ever play the game. Peyton Manning is the most cerebral quarterback of all time. Not only does he hold every record that holds any meaning for quarterbacks, but he’s also a motivator and film room junkie. He pushes his teammates at every turn. He raises all boats and makes everyone around him better.</p> </blockquote> <p id="jJwHqP">2015 was a rollercoaster ride for Peyton Manning and Broncos Country in general. After being injured in the Colts game on November 8, the Sherriff just wasn’t himself the following week in Kansas City. In comes Brock Osweiler, who does a better than decent job until the final week of the regular season. The team was lethargic against the <a href="https://www.boltsfromtheblue.com/">Chargers</a> in a must-have game to secure homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. What to do?</p> <p id="qqMqi4">The jolt of energy that radiated through the team when Kubiak decided to put Peyton back in was so charged that it not only carried Denver out of that game with a win, but propelled them forward into the playoffs and into possession of the Broncos third Super Bowl Championship. Peyton Manning indeed raises all boats. We were tremendously fortunate to have him.</p> <p id="6kfmQv">...and now we turn the page. The next chapter of this story will be written by Russell Wilson and his band of <a href="">Denver Broncos</a>. Writing this has been a fun walk down memory lane, but it’s exciting to think about what is just around the corner this season.</p> <h1 id="GricLa"><strong>HEADLINES</strong></h1> <p id="Wle2pp"><a href="https://www.espn.com/blog/denver-broncos/post/_/id/40767/denver-broncos-return-to-outside-zone-could-mean-big-things-for-rbs-fantasy-players">Denver Broncos' run scheme could mean big things for RBs, fantasy players - Denver Broncos Blog- ESPN</a><br>Nathaniel Hackett is bringing the Broncos back to a scheme that helped win back-to-back Super Bowls, and it may mean big numbers for several players.</p> <p id="MSfPuU"><a href="https://www.denverbroncos.com/news/sleepless-nights-and-draft-night-tears-the-indescribable-bond-between-javonte-wi">Javonte Williams' indescribable bond with his father</a><br>“His dad would go from here to the end of the world for his son,” Williams’ first high-school coach says.</p> <p id="2aiVjh"><a href="https://www.denverbroncos.com/news/broncos-announce-practice-dates-for-2022-training-camp-powered-by-ford">Broncos announce practice dates for 2022 Training Camp powered by Ford</a><br>Broncos Country’s first opportunity to see Russell Wilson and the 2022 Broncos in person is coming soon.</p> <p id="JMIiD4"><a href="https://www.nfl.com/news/case-keenum-happy-to-be-wanted-by-bills-it-feels-great-to-have-a-team-like-this">Case Keenum happy to be 'wanted' by Bills: 'It feels great to have a team like this'</a><br>Once an undrafted rookie, Case Keenum has found another landing spot in Buffalo after the Bills traded for him to back up Josh Allen.

My uncle got a Purple Heart in the Vietnam War.” </p> <p id="uVfNTi">Simmons has done his share of moving around, so he was happy to introduce his new teammate to the Denver community. </p> <p id="FnBpVN">“We saw Red Rocks, we saw Union Station, we went to Larimer Square, obviously, we were right outside of Mile High Stadium,” Simmons said. “And it was really cool. D.J., moving to a new city, and he’s obviously got a new home, and then a new team — all of that can be a little overwhelming. You’re not really sure what to look for. And so it was fun, being able to go around and show him around the city of Denver, some cool places to check out while he’s here.” </p> <p id="M4F4rM">That’s another reason it was fun for Simmons to partner with USAA on this. </p> <p id="0qqIHR">“I know how hard moving can be. I’ve had to move a lot in my life. And I’m sure a lot of people can relate to that,” he said. “And so USAA, they have helpful moving tips, which I thought were great. And it was great information. And that’s at everyone’s disposal. So you can find that at <a href="http://usaa.com/movers">usaa.com/movers</a>. And like I said, helpful information, because moving can be overwhelming.”</p> <h2 id="4tamqb">On playing with new teammate Russell Wilson</h2> <p id="Xvs1X2">D.J. Jones isn’t Simmons’ only new teammate this offseason, and he’s also not the new teammate most people have been talking about this offseason. That would be quarterback Russell Wilson, who won Simmons over in short order with his work ethic and preparation. </p> <p id="zI4CUq">“Russ has been great. I’ve shared pretty much with everyone just how awesome of a person he is,” Simmons said. “I think the coolest part about working with Russ, just in the first few months of him being a new addition to the team, was watching his preparation and his — I keep saying it over and over, but his meticulous attention to detail. I think, for me, like I haven’t really experienced that with any other player before. And so there’s a reason why he’s been so successful at the highest level, and I’m watching it kind of unfold right before my eyes, every day in practice and walkthroughs and meetings, just the way that he approaches his job and the livelihood of it is just — it’s crazy. It doesn’t happen by accident, the success that that has come with Russ.”</p> <h2 id="mXK0T1">On maybe being the most stylish guy on Denver’s roster</h2> <p id="AvZK81">There’s no denying it: Simmons’ game day attire is [flame emoji]. He’s already working with Tom Marchitelli at Gentleman’s Playbook to plan out his outfits for the 2022 season. </p> <div id="j0H6xE"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">One of my favorite days of the year in Denver today sitting down with <a href="https://twitter.com/jsimms1119?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@jsimms1119</a> to put his looks together for the season.

He says he’s not sure if he is the most stylish guy on the Broncos’ roster, and gives full credit to Marchitelli, who is a fellow Boston College alumnus. </p> <p id="FrKHJ9">“So my guy Tom, with Gentleman’s Playbook, he’s been doing this for a while, and he’s a BC alum. So yeah, that’s how I ended up finding them,” Simmons said. “He reached out to me. And there’s a really cool brotherhood the BC alumni connection kind of has. So he reached out to me, and that was my rookie year and we’ve kind of collabed every year since. </p> <p id="wgNnuE">“I wish I could take credit for my style and the suits and things that I get to pick, but Tom’s the mastermind behind everything. He comes over to the house and, just like you said, we’ll sit there — we have the game day schedule in front of us, and we’re just picking and choosing away, and he already has a plethora of combinations that he thinks would work, and I just sit there and it’s like a kid in the candy store, man. I’m saying yes to everything. He just does such a great job. And, and obviously, it’s been paying off because the suits are great, and I think the the ideas he has behind it are even better. And looking forward to this year, I think we’ve got some really good stuff for everyone this year. He does such a great job.”</p> <h2 id="Zbl7Oh">On landing on the cover of <em>Colorado Avid Golfer</em> magazine</h2> <p id="4AYfFv">Simmons is still perfecting his golf game, but that didn’t keep him from gracing the cover of a recent issue of <em>Colorado Avid Golfer</em> magazine. </p> <p id="DkkKd9">“You know, think the coolest part about it is just kind of exposing yourself to different audiences. I’ve always been a fan of golf, and I’ve always enjoyed watching it,” Simmons said. “I’d never played until the past few years. And so there’s still a lot of work to be done in my golf game and for my handicap, but the the experience of going golfing with teammates, and you know, maybe you’re doing a business meeting, you do a quick, front nine, back nine. </p> <p id="wXiMLU">“I just think golf is so versatile, and you can do it for meetings, for fun, getting to know someone — a lot of times, I find it to be a lot more fun than just going out and sitting at a restaurant and eating and having conversation that way. So golfing has been great, and that was an experience shooting that magazine cover. I just thought it was really cool, just experiencing something different and exposing yourself to a different culture, environment, people.”</p> <h2 id="hc2W9z">Giving back and supporting young people is Simmons’ priority</h2> <p id="x8FfRU">Simmons and his wife, Taryn, founded the Justin Simmons Foundation in 2020. The foundation’s work focuses primarily on supporting young people, including ending bullying. </p> <p id="X4ctj2">“My wife and I started the Justin Simmons Foundation really in hopes just to support our youth in any way possible,” Simmons said. “I mean, that’s ultimately the the true vision and goal of this whole deal. We’ve partnered with the Boys and Girls Club, the Denver Rescue Mission. </p> <p id="xJh88p">“One of our favorite projects that we’re doing right now is, we’re sponsoring or helping sponsor a musical called <a href="https://speaklifethemusical.org/">Speak Life End Bullying</a>, and we just think it’s going to be the best thing that’s happened to our schools in probably the longest time. I think this new age of technology and everything that’s kind of going on with social media, and there’s so many different forms of bullying, and those are manifested in different ways. And I think exposing our children to this, and having them watch this film would be life-changing and super inspirational. I’ve seen it and I’ve seen the messages that are set behind it, and it’s truly is so impactful, and it’s so heavy, and there’s so many good things in there that I think a lot of kids can relate to. So it’s things like that we’re so happy to be involved in and to be a part of, and it’s just such a blessing for both of us, because our youth is our future. And we always say, we just want to invest in them — invest in them because they are our future.” </p> <p id="MHspF2"><a href="https://www.justinsimmonsfoundation.org/events/">Visit the Justin Simmons Foundation website</a> to learn more about their efforts and to support them.</p> <h2 id="dxevTh">Simmons has high expectations for the Broncos this year</h2> <p id="DgHCcj">It’s shaping up to be an interesting season in Denver, and Simmons’ expectations for himself and his teammates are very high. </p> <p id="dahOVy">“I think the team in general has high expectations. I don’t think any of us are shying away from that. I think no one’s gonna have higher expectations than us,” he said. “And one of the goals is not just getting to the postseason, but winning in the postseason. Right? And obviously, the ultimate goal is getting to the big game and and winning it. I think we have a team that is roster-wise is just as good as any other team in the NFL. And we know that’s not what wins games, but we like our chances. </p> <p id="GqtZnA">“And I’m just really excited to get out there and just prove with wins that we’re able to do that.” </p> /2022/6/17/23171590/justin-simmons-has-high-expectations-for-the-broncos-this-season Jeanna Thomas 2022-06-17T07:00:00-06:00 2022-06-17T07:00:00-06:00 नेवालdeepsainiMile High Report - All Posts - sk sabir boss id <figure> <img alt="NCAA Football: Camellia Bowl-Marshall vs Buffalo" src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/V5pEdm8V6QnJl5636VKPr7oCDAo=/0x0:2957x1971/1310x873/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/70987008/usa_today_15359893.0.jpg" /> <figcaption>Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports</figcaption> </figure> <p>The Denver Broncos have a pair of inside linebackers competing for a roster spot in training camp. </p> <p id="8Igxb0">The <a href="">Denver Broncos</a> went into the <a href="https://www.sbnation.com/nfl-draft">2022 NFL Draft</a> needing to add some depth at inside linebacker, but the board just didn’t fall that way.

This ranked 961 out of 2419 LB from 1987 to 2022. <a href="https://t.co/12Ig6kKaH4">https://t.co/12Ig6kKaH4</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/RAS?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#RAS</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/UDFA?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#UDFA</a> <a href="https://t.co/Ze1fq30e1U">https://t.co/Ze1fq30e1U</a> <a href="https://t.co/RE7PZwq0gp">pic.twitter.com/RE7PZwq0gp</a></p>— Kent Lee Platte (@MathBomb) <a href="https://twitter.com/MathBomb/status/1520554234135072768?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">May 1, 2022</a> </blockquote> <script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div> <p id="ZqrgMj">Where he may struggle is with his lack of size in comparison to Jewell. He’ll need to bulk up some there. The other major issue is his struggles with shedding blocks and his tendency to tackle high, which will cause him issues at the NFL level.</p> <h3 id="g73fXJ">Final word</h3> <p id="xSo57o">Overall, Wright seems like an intriguing guy for the Broncos to develop and I would peg him as a guy to look for when Denver goes to fill out their practice squad. We’ll have to see how he does in training camp, but I do like his upside as a “quarterback of the defense” type guy.</p> <div id="5abJj2"><div data-anthem-component="poll:11285026"></div></div> /2022/6/17/23162723/broncos-roster-kadofi-wright Tim Lynch
