Andy Janovich channeled his inner Howard Griffith against Washington

Rate this Entry
Any doubts people may have had that Andy Janovich didnít have a significant role to play in this offense evaporated on Friday when the Denver Broncos whipped the Washington Redskins 29-17 in the third preseason game of the year.Both rushing touchdowns from the first-team offense were blown wide open by a Janovich block. The first was an inside run that the Redskins linebacker was in good position for Womens Justin Simmons Jersey , but Janovich put him out of position and out of the play immediately. Offensive guard Connor McGovern then chased a second linebacker out of the play to spring Royce Freeman through for a 24-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.Andy Janovich springs Royce Freeman on a big block inside.Both Redskins linebackers were forced off balance on the play, which set things up beautifully. Later on in the second quarter, Janovich got involved again. This block was even more impressive as it showed off his actual football intelligence. Janovichís first assignment was the defensive end and most guys probably would have just dove right in to put a helmet on the first helmet they saw.Not Janovich. He recognized the defensive end blew containment by ducking inside, so Janovich ran right by him to take out the safety knowing Emmanuel Sanders would have enough speed to make that defensive end regret his decision.Andy Janovich annihilates a would-be tackler as Emmanuel Sanders runs his way into the endzone.The result was a nifty gain that Sanders turned into a 27-yard touchdown run on an end around. But wait Authentic Case Keenum Jersey , thereís more! Janovich would get back up and hurry downfield to try and keep up with Sanders and succeeded in creating just enough muck of chasing Redskins to keep Sanders going right into the end zone.Janovich has some hussle!Now we know why Brock Olivo wanted 11 Janoís on his special teams units. Janovich hussled on this play even after he made the block that got Sanders to the second level. The Broncos rushing attack is going to be a lot better in 2017 because Andy Janovich is going to be clearing the way.Broncos vs Seahawks: No Bull Answers In case you missed it last week, I posed some questions that I was specifically looking at going into this game. Letís run down the list and see what insights we got about this team from week 1:Is Case Keenum a real step forward for our offense?Answer:No Bronco fan was thrilled with the 3 picks. Thatís the kind of stuff that will lose you a game.But it is early in the season with a new team and the whole team is running a new offense in its 1st year under a new offensive coordinator.What I saw from Keenum that makes me answer this question with a solid ďYes,Ē is the confidence and competence with which he went about his business.Much of his passing was accurate. He answered the call for every moment that started looking bad (including the moments he largely created). The leadership alone we saw from Keenum is a huge step forward for this team and offense. Any of the scrub real estate salesmen masquerading as NFL players we had last year in this game would have folded like a cheap lawn chair while the Seahawks rolled us by double digits.Is Bradley Roby able to hold it down on the outside?Answer:Nope.Bradley Roby had a stinker of a game. His tackling was a sack full of weak sauce. His coverage was at times decent below the waist, but Brandon Marshall scored a TD on him where he was in position to knock the ball away. I am not encouraged much at all by what we saw in week 1 from our #2 cornerback.Adam Jones may end up taking his spot if this is the level of play Roby brings in his contract season.Does Bill Musgrave have a rabbit in his hat?Answer:Heís got a colony of rabbits in his hat. I canít remember the last time I was watching a Bronco game and caught off guard so many times by what the offense did. He used a ton of personnel (big plus in my books) http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.c...arshall-jersey , he mixed up formations, and he designed great deception plays to scheme players open in positive match-ups. Also, I loved the ebb and flow of the game and how he adjusted his play calling.We ran a bunch of shorter routes to keep the chains moving against the opponentís cover-3 scheme. Seattle switched to some cover-4 looks and he countered with flooding areas with more routes than they had players. Late in the game with a lead we brought out some real old-school mano a mano smash mouth running to run the clock off. Bill Musgrave is a big reason that we won the game and why the Broncos offense looks like it could be a legit worry for their NFL opponents in the coming weeks.Can our ILBs play at a higher level than last year?Answer:Yes they can. Both Brandon Marshall and Todd Davis were flying all over the field making plays against both the run and the pass. Leading up to the season Iíd mentioned that I thought the ILB talent on the Broncos was a weakness and boy was I wrong. Iím excited to see Davis and Marshall bring it next week!Your turn!What questions did you get answered in this game and what did you take away?If you posted questions in the comments last week, hop over and copy and paste them here with your takes.
