Even though this offseason has been unlike any other, and provided far fewer glimpses of how this Broncos team will actually be when the pads go on, the positive vibes are still there as the coordinators told the media Thursday how well the zoom season has been going.
Defensive coordinator Ed Donatell said his coaches found creative ways to engage the players – such as using Prezi (think of power point on steroids…but not the best ones) or Kahoot, an online quiz tool. They even played games, such as making the background of your screen show your favorite music artist to help create dialogue and get to know each other.
“It just made us think of new ways. You have to ask the players. I think they appreciate it,” Donatell said, adding that from a teaching standpoint, it was actually easier to scan the screen of 15-20 faces rather than a room to tell if the players were “getting” it.
