Should the Denver Broncos fire Vance Joseph after two seasons with the team? What will John Elway do? We explore the reasons why or why not.
Should the Denver Broncos fire Vance Joseph?
For many of you reading this, the question doesn’t need any further consideration besides a simple eye test.
It is safe to say, at this point, that a good majority of Broncos Country wants a new head coach. Since Joseph’s season-opening win against the Chargers in 2017, things have been a mixed bag and mostly bad for the Broncos.
The 2017 season ended so poorly that the Broncos ended up with a top-five draft pick. Though having a top five pick in the NFL Draft was fun, it didn’t exactly leave a great taste in everyone’s mouth after the season when there was nothing to build on, including not having a quarterback capable of helping the team win games.
Joseph and John Elway teamed up and opted to give Case Keenum a two-year contract worth $36 million. Despite the addition of Keenum, the Broncos’ inconsistencies on the field remain.
Now with a 6-7 record heading into the home stretch of the 2018 season, the Broncos face the potential of another year with double-digit losses and another seemingly wasted year of the best outside pass rusher in football, Von Miller.
Where will the team go from here? Is firing Joseph the answer, or are the team’s problems mainly elsewhere?
Let’s look at reasons for and against firing Joseph with what we’ve seen in just under two seasons.
