threw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week One and finished the game with 377 passing yards Juwann Winfree Denver Broncos Jersey , but that figure doesn’t paint a very accurate picture of how things played out against the Jets.Keenum threw the first quarter touchdown pass after the Broncos took over on the Jets’ 20-yard-line and then didn’t get the Broncos back into the end zone until they were down 34-10 in the fourth quarter. In the interim, he was sacked four times and pressured consistently during a frustrating afternoon for the Denver offense.Jets defensive end Leonard Williams had 2.5 sacks and said after the game that it felt like Keenum was overwhelmed by what the defense was doing.“That’s what I loved to see,” Williams said, via the New York Daily News. “There were a few times when we hit him … even if it wasn’t a sack. We were getting to him a lot. He seemed really uncomfortable. There were times when we wouldn’t even get to him and he would just get scared and throw the ball away. There would be nobody over there. That’s the best thing you could do as a defense: Get in the head of the offense flustered like that.”Keenum said he could point to “four or five” reasons why the offense struggled on Sunday, including his own play.“There were a few new things, but it鈥檚 no excuse,” Keenum said Justin Simmons Jersey , via a transcript provided by the Jets. “I鈥檝e got to do better identifying that stuff and getting the ball out on time. There鈥檚 a few plays that I know specifically, even from the pictures I could see I had guys running open and I didn鈥檛 pull the trigger. I take those sacks. They鈥檙e on me. I pride myself on getting the ball out on time and there鈥檚 definitely some instances where I didn鈥檛.”The Broncos have now lost three games in a row after opening with a pair of wins. That feels a lot like last year, which isn’t a good thing for the Broncos as they went from 3-1 to 3-9 in a losing season. According to 9NEWS Denver’s Mike Klis, the Broncos have given Defensive Coordinator Joe Woods permission to speak with other teams after they hired Vc Fangio as their Head Coach.Per Klis, Woods is getting interest from at least three teams in him being their Defensive Backs coach and potentially a Defensive Coordinator gig as well. This is an expected move after the Broncos hired Fangio who will essentially be the head guy on that side of the ball going forward. Woods has served as the Broncos Defensive Coordinator the past two seasons after replacing Wade Phillips. He had some success in this role for the Broncos, but there plenty of times where the unit struggled and just looked unprepared on the field. Missed assignments, players calling out Woods publicly and reportedly internally Juwann Winfree Denver Broncos Jersey , and just inconsistent play from the Broncos defense. It wasn’t all bad, but definitely not what the Broncos hoped from Woods.There is some talk that Woods be welcomed back if he took a demotion back to Defensive Backs coach but you rarely see that happen. While Fangio figures to be the head defensive guy for the Broncos, he figures to add a Defensive Coordinator by title to his staff. The name to reportedly to keep an eye on is Chicago Bears DB’s coach, Ed Donatell. Donatell has been with Fangio since back to his 49ers days so it makes sense he will follow him to Denver. Also, his contract is up with the Bears so they do not have to ask permission or hope the Bears do not just promote Donatell to Defensive Coordinator. The Bears secondary took a big step forward this past year after being coached by Fangio and Donatell so if this does go down, it could be a big move for the Broncos secondary that struggled some in 2018.
