Things were supposed to be different for the Denver Broncos this season.
But that hasn’t happened. Following an ugly 37-12 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders this past Sunday, optimism is way down and so are the spirits of a good portion of the team’s fans.
The Broncos were dominated in every phase of the game against the Raiders and to add insult to injury, Devontae Booker checked into the game and ran all over his former team, scoring two touchdowns in the process. If that doesn’t tell you how this season has gone, nothing will.
There are very few positives to take away at this point. The quarterback play has been bad, the play-calling has left much to be desired and overall, the team is just far too inconsistent.
The Broncos still have seven games left to play and if you look at the remaining schedule and you do so honestly, you realize that there probably aren’t many wins to get out there.
This team is not going to the playoffs barring an incredible mid-season turnaround. That seems highly unlikely at this point.
Sorry, Broncos fans, but this season has been a disaster and it’s safe to assume that it will be one the rest of the way as well. Through nine games, the following things, which are all critical, have become painfully obvious.
