Vance Joseph expected to be fired at the end of the season
A source told Pro Football Talk that Vance Joseph’s time in Denver will end once Black Monday starts on New Years Eve. It is looking more and more likely that Denver will enter the new year without the head coach that has led to two disappointing seasons.
This truly would not come as a surprise. Denver was oh so close to pulling the trigger last season, but decided to give him another chance. The likely thought at the time was that his job would be safe if he could lead the Broncos to the playoffs.
But that did not happen. And now it looks like the time is coming to an end.
John Elway wanted to hire Mike Shannahan as Head Coach after 2017 season
In what was perhaps the craziest story this week for the Broncos was a what if scenario. Woody Paige released a shell shocker that once the season ended last year, Elway was looking to hire Shannahan and he would come up with a way to bring in Kirk Cousins. (subscription required)
However, according to the source, there was one thing that blocked it. Joe Ellis. He refused to let this happen. Therefore, Vance Joseph stayed.
It makes you wonder what would have happened if that occurred in Denver. Would Denver made the playoffs this season? It is a bunch of what if’s that we may never see happen.
Von Miller, Phillip Lindsay selected to Pro Bowl
On Tuesday, the Pro Bowl rosters were announced and two Denver Broncos players were selected to represent their team in the Pro Bowl. For Von Miller, it comes as no surprise as he has been such a dominate player since his arrival in the league.
For Phillip Lindsay, he makes history. He becomes the first undrafted rookie offensive player to make the Pro Bowl roster in NFL history. It is quite a phenomenal achievement. Congrats to them both.
Bradley Chubb, Emmanuel Sanders, and Chris Harris Jr. also made the Pro Bowl as alternates.
