CENTENNIAL, Colo. (CBS4)– The Denver Broncos ran for a season-high 189 yards in their win over the Dolphins on Sunday, and former Broncos offensive lineman Mark Schlereth says that was a product of solid play calling.
“They executed exceptionally well,” said Schlereth who appeared as the guest on Xfinity Monday Live.READ MORE: Colorado Pauses Use Of Johnson & Johnson COVID Vaccine
“Pretty unique from a play calling standpoint. Some things I hadn’t seen them run before and frankly, I don’t even know what to call it,” said Schlereth.
“They did a great job of balancing up their formations. Really condensing formations and getting physical.”READ MORE: Teller County Deputy Rushed To Hospital After Head-On Crash With Suspected DUI Driver
Schlereth was also very complimentary of the play of offensive lineman Garett Bolles.
“He’s playing great right now,” said Schlereth.
“He’s playing exceptional football. His pass sets have cleaned up dramatically. I think he’s put on some strength, and some size and some weight and he’s been a tenacious run blocker. He’s parlayed this season into an opportunity to get a giant contract.”MORE NEWS: Double Shooting In Denver: Elias Chavez And Tlaloc Chavez Charged With Killing DeAngelo Tafoya And David Lara
Bolles and the rest of the Broncos will play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High.
