Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase has some big plans for the team’s offense, the fourth ranked unit in the NFL in 2012. Gase has a quarterback in Peyton Manning who knows all the tricks, a new slot receiver in Wes Welker, two big time wideouts in Eric Decker and Demaryius Thomas, and a pass catching tight end in Jacob Tamme. Gase wants them all on the same page and going as fast as possible. The New England Patriots have been doing it for a few years and the Philadelphia Eagles will run a super fast up tempo offense under Chip Kelly. Gase wants to get in on that bet this year and he has the cards to play in the game. As much as the new fast paced style will be in effect, the Broncos offense will have new concepts from the ‘Mike Martz offense.’ In 2013, Gase wants to put up points by the dozens by spreading the ball around and getting the right players at the correct time. "That is really what I was talking about in terms of our speed of the game — it is all going to be predicated off (wide receiver) Eric (Decker), Wes and the tight ends knowing what's going on and being able to keep up with the quarterback. That's really what's going to increase our play," via Jeff Legwold of the Denver Post. Gase added: "We're going to go as fast as basically the quarterback needs to go on that particular series. He has the tools to speed it up, slow it down, huddle — every series will probably be a little bit different." Gase intends on using the running backs a lot more in the passing game and more vertical downfield routes. It’s all about lines and concepts with the Martz offense, Manning should be a kid in a candy store. Legwold writes: ‘But in terms of play-calling, Gase's lineage is through Mike Martz with offensive concepts going back to Don Coryell and Sid Gillman. Martz, the former Rams head coach, was one of the most aggressive play-callers in the NFL, particularly with his record-setting offense in St. Louis. Martz was also one of the great closers. His teams went 55-5 in games when it held a fourth-quarter lead. Martz's Rams teams continually slammed the door whenever they carried the lead into the final quarter or got it in the final 15 minutes of play.
