Vic Fangio’s seat getting hotter?

Sort of a theme with a couple of these storylines, but here’s yet another one that focuses on the success of the team.

The Broncos weren’t in a great position to win last year with all of the injuries, so I honestly will let 2020 slide in terms of Vic Fangio’s hot seat.

That being said, if the Broncos are a healthy team next year and still can’t find a way to win more games than in recent memory, you can start to wonder how hot Fangio’s seat as Broncos head coach is.

If Drew Lock and/or Teddy Bridgewater fail to make a big impact on the team in 2021, everybody will be questioning why George Paton didn’t do absolutely everything in his power to acquire Aaron Rodgers.

The quarterback position is the most important position in football and if you don’t have a good or great quarterback, the chances of you being a successful team aren’t that great.

The addition of Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t exactly move the needle at quarterback. Rodgers would.

If they don’t get Rodgers, it would be a major regret. If the team they form without Rodgers isn’t close to the playoffs, this is a major failure and could be at Fangio’s expense.

Fangio needs to improve on several things. For one, his clock management was very questionable at times. Another is simply getting the team prepared for game days.

Obvious, isn’t it?

Sadly the lack of efficient preparation has resulted in a number of losing seasons. His time is running out.
