Bradley Chubb feels a different aura around the Broncos this season, his second with the team. Over the last two seasons, the Broncos have not been their typical selves, going 11-21 and suffering consecutive losing seasons for the first time since the 1971 and 1972 campaigns.
Now, with Vic Fangio at the helm, Chubb feels like the Broncos are ready to right the ship.
”Coach Fangio has that vision for us, his whole coaching staff has that mindset that we’re not going to be average, we’re not going to be what we were last year, that we’re not going to be what we were the year before that, so everybody is coming out here with the right mindset.”
That upgrade across the board for the coaching staff has been the greatest improvement the Broncos have made this offseason and it’s been apparent so far through camp. Hopefully that improvement will help Chubb wash the bitter taste out of his mouth of a disappointing 6-10 season, and replace it with the successful season he’s been craving.
“We’re just hungry,” Chubb continued. “We all know that we’re not a 6-10 team and that’s what we put on paper last year. The year before that, what was it, 5-11 or whatever? Everybody knows that’s not what we want to be. It’s day 20 and everybody is going full speed in just helmets and squishy pads. Everybody has that right mindset, everybody wants to win, everybody wants to be better than we were the past couple years.”
With Fangio’s guidance, one area of the Broncos that should certainly get better in 2019 is their pass rush, headlined by Von Miller and Chubb. If the legendary defensive mind is able to get career years out of that duo, there’s a good chance the the Broncos will be better than they were the past couple years.
