Denver Broncos: 5 consequences if they miss the playoffs in 2021
It’s easier said than done, there is no question about it, but the Denver Broncos need to make the playoffs in 2021.
It would likely save Vic Fangio’s job.
Making the playoffs wouldn’t guarantee it, but it would certainly bode well for Teddy Bridgewater getting a second contract in Denver.
Even if Bridgewater was just average, making the postseason would make the Denver Broncos more attractive to prospective free agent quarterbacks or quarterbacks available via trade. Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, Kirk Cousins, and others are all possibilities of QBs that could be available next offseason, and there are certainly more where that came from.
Making the playoffs in 2021 would certainly make George Paton look better for passing on a quarterback in the draft.
It could also help prevent a new owner from coming in and thinking Paton was crazy not to draft one of Fields or Jones.
Oh and by the way, how important do you think making the playoffs is for the Denver Broncos’ ownership situation?
There’s so much riding on this season, but it’s got to be taken one week at a time. The Denver Broncos can’t afford for little mistakes to cost them a shot at getting to the dance.
Even if the Broncos aren’t considered Super Bowl contenders in 2021, they are good enough on paper to make the playoffs with seven teams representing each conference.
