ENGLEWOOD, Colorado. As week two of OTA’s started, the offense was without Demaryius Thomas who had a personal matter to attend to. Here’s hoping it revolves quickly and isn’t anything serious. Billy Turner was also out with an ankle sprain suffered the first day of practice. For the defense, Shaq Barrett suffered a hip injury last week and the team is waiting for a date to return.
Jospeh says he wants the quarterbacks to take chances because that’s what practice is for, to learn your boundaries. For some, that must be a novel concept: practice for making mistakes so you learn from them. Good thing VJ does not read twitter where some see practice as a game, after three days of practice since January.
Some coaches add on as players feel comfortable, VJ is doing the reverse, he’s throwing everything at them and it makes sense,“ what you want to do in the spring is have your install where it’s large enough to carry you through the fall. You don’t want to be in the fall, in week four or five, adding more offense or defense. You want to put it all in now and kind of stretch their brains, so in the fall when you add different concepts, it won’t be their first time hearing it. That’s the way I’ve grown up in coaching. Make them learn it in the spring, even though it looks bad sometimes. It’s a lot to learn. But in the fall, it makes it a lot easier. You can survive the fall with your spring install if it’s done correctly.”
They’re still rotating the OL. As far as the players, he’s liked what he’s seen from QB Kyle SLoter, RB Devontae Booker, CB Brendan Langley and DE Adam Gotsis. He’s seen improvement with their athleticism. Which brings up his final word. He wants his quarterbacks to scramble if they need those five or seven yards because everyone is covered. I’d call that bringing aggression and swagger.
