The Denver Broncos are pretty good, but it looks like they might fall out of playoff contention only because they are in a place where their offense is not able to keep up with their defense. They are currently good enough to make noise in the AFC West, but they probably cannot finish second in the Afc West. If the Texans and Jaguars are going to battle for their own division, that means that the Broncos could be the last team out of the playoffs.

How can they learn from this experience and be ready next season?

Improve the offense

The Broncos have all offseason to work on their offense, and they will come into next season with no competition for the quarterback spot.

They will come into next season knowing that they could get close to being in the playoffs, and they can simply repeat what they already did. This is the best thing that could have happened to a team that probably thought Trevor Siemian would lose the job to Paxton Lynch. Lynch is a bust, and Siemian is the man now.

Build up the defense

They really just need to give their defense a little bit more help. Certain guys are going to get old or retire, and it's important that the Broncos maintain their defense until they can turn the team back over to the offense.

All NFL franchises can go through stages where they are run by one unit or another. The Broncos will shift back to offense if they can score a lot this year and next, and they can stop worrying about trying to sign every star on their defense.

They will have the confidence to let older guys go, and they will give the defense a chance to rest.

Keep the strategy

Vance Joseph is doing something right, and he has already outcoached someone this season. He seems to be the answer for this team, and he can stay with Trevor Siemian for the future so that they can grow together.

That relationship between the quarterback and the coach means a lot, and these two guys can really get to know each other pretty well.

If the Broncos can develop Siemian into a star, they can let him start to run the offense, and they will have more freedom on their coaching staff. They do not have to hire people to fix their problems so much as they would have to pick the fit for each job.

This means that this season could be lost because they will run out of steam at the end of the year.

Being really good and being a target for other teams is not an easy way to play, and that is why Siemian will run out of gas. However, he will come back next year with a vengeance.
