ENGLEWOOD COLO. — As theCreate an offensive playbook for the quarterback One of his most important tasks is to make sure he gets hit less and maintains mobility.
John Elway, a Hall of Famer, joked that there was an “age multiplier”, when it comes to sacks. If a quarterback is over 30, “a hit counts every time,” and if they are over 40, it's like three. I have never even made it to 40 as an athlete.
Wilson will be 33 years old when he starts the 2022 season. He turns 34 on November 29. The Broncos have to find the right balance between Wilson's mobility and his ability to save plays.

When asked about Wilson’s progress, Nathaniel Hackett (Broncos coach) said “It's all a matter of the command system.” We want to build this system around him and make him feel comfortable so that he can live the dream. He accomplished some amazing things. [in practice] “Using his athleticism while at the same being a pure dropback passer.”
Wilson is a long-term candidate for the Broncos. They want to see his ability to move quickly and avoid defenders. They admire his ability to persevere despite not being able to complete the snap. His health has been great, missing only three games in 10 years — all the last season after finger surgery.
Wilson is one of the most frequently sacked quarterbacks over the past decade. Although sacks may not always be a good indicator of whether a team is holding on to the ball for too long or not protecting enough, they can still be hits on the quarterback.
Wilson has been fired at least 40 times during eight of his seasons. This includes a league record 48 in 2019, when he tied for the lead with.. He was sacked 51 times in 2018, his career-high. In 2018, he was sacked 51 times, his worst season. He had been sacked in 2012 (33) as an rookie, and last season (33) when three of his starts were missed.
Wilson was asked last week whether he believes that playing from the pocket will be the priority for the Broncos' offense. He replied, “Yeah. For sure.” Everything starts in the pocket. To be able control the game through the pocket, I believe everything begins from there.
He said, “But also out of the pocket.” Both must be possible.
The Broncos' pass game has been plagued by protection issues since the post-Peyton Manning era. This was especially true when they opened the formation using three wide receivers. The Broncos' quarterbacks have been harassed and made mistakes as a result.
Wilson's abilities can repair much of it, but Hackett promised a run-game good enough to keep defenders from getting in the way. Play-action passing will be a more effective tool for Wilson if he has a solid run game. Wilson can play longer, but the Broncos want him to be more efficient in moving the ball.
Hackett was the scout for three seasons.As he watched, the offensive coordinator Wilson is able to conjure up the impossible on the move. Wilson admits that Wilson's mobility is an advantage. It is also why the Broncos sent five draft choices and three players to Seattle to acquire the quarterback. Everyone involved must take responsibility for how Wilson fits into the scheme and the desire that Wilson remains on the field.
“Even when your out here [at practice] Hackett explained that while everyone believes they fired him, it's just a joke because you can see the tape and you can see how many times he makes things out of things. He bobs and weaves and then suddenly scores touchdowns.
