The Denver Broncos must be wise moving forward to get back to the postseason. John Elway can lead the way. He has not failed yet.
The Denver Broncos must be wise moving forward, especially in the aftermath of a lost season.
All of Broncos Country is disappointed after the first non-playoff season in six years.
As the defending Super Bowl champions, the Broncos had understandably high expectations entering this season.
Nevertheless, fans and media must trust general manager/executive vice president of football operations John Elway. Since taking over in 2011, Elway has generally done the right thing.
Elway is a mortal and, as such, is going to make mistakes.
Some on Twitter have told me Elway is terrible at drafting. While it’s true he has had his issues.
With that said, while it sounds irrational to some, head coach Gary Kubiak likely must be dismissed.
I will admit that the Broncos’ biggest issue, however, is the offensive line.
It is a unit, that has struggled mightily, as the Broncos’ offense is 28th in the NFL, rushing for 89.4 yards per game.
As Mike Rice of K0A 850-AM of Denver mentioned on the Broncos’ call-in show Sunday night, overreacting is the worst thing Denver can do.
If the Broncos can improve on the offensive line, the skill position players and defense are stout.
However, the elephant in the room may be Kubiak. It’s obvious that he has health issues. The play-calling decisions are particularly head-scratching.
Beyond this, several questionable active player decisions (Jordan Norwood in Week 15) have been befuddling.

Kubiak was the right head coach for the Broncos in 2015. There is no disputing that point.
However, you cannot tell me that coaching has nothing to do with the offensive issues.
At the end of the day, Broncos Country can rest assured that Elway will not rest on his laurels.
The two-time Super Bowl champion and Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee will not settle for mediocrity.

In any event, Broncos fans, trust the process. Your beloved squad will not be down for long. GO BRONCOS!!!
