Is Javonte Williams’ 11 catches vs. Seattle bad for offense?


Kyle Newman

It’s a bad sign — or at the very best, a sign this offense hasn’t found its identity yet. The identity cannot be checking it down to the tailback that often. It’s good to know Javonte Williams can be a dual threat if the Broncos need him to be. But the bottom line is Denver needs more big pass plays to its top trio of wideouts, like the one Jerry Jeudy hauled in for a 67-yard TD in Seattle. KJ Hamler only saw one target and he drew a pass interference call on the play. He needs to get the ball more to get rolling. Running back Melvin Gordon (two catches for 14 yards) also got targeted more than Hamler. Hopefully, better offensive rhythm and improved offensive line play in Week 2 against Houston enables Wilson to get Jeudy, Hamler and Sutton (four catches for 72 yards) involved more. Williams can get a couple dump-offs or screens, but his job is to run the rock and be one of the best tackle-shedders in the NFL.
