How to Fix the Denver Broncos

1. Hire a new coaching staff

Get rid of every coach.  All of them, except for Mike Munchak.  Even with the offensive line’s poor performance this year, Munch is still regarded highly around the league, and the Denver Broncos should not let him go to another team or even retire if they can help it.

Vic Fangio, Pat Shurmur, Ed Donatell, and Tom McMahon are culprits of this pathetic excuse of a football team.  They all need to go, whether it be during the season or after–as long as these men are relieved of their duties.

I was so high on the Broncos coaching staff when it was first assembled, and even more excited when he dumped Rich Scangarello for Pat Shurmur.

Since the beginning of the 2020 season, the Broncos are 8-14 and have shown no signs of being a consistent ball club.

Being that many teams are having success with younger, perhaps more cutting edge and innovative coaches, I think that’s where the Broncos need to look.

Someone like Kellen Moore from Dallas or Nathaniel Hackett, who is the offensive coordinator from Green Bay would be a nice hire for the team.  The Broncos have had two straight defensive coaches with years of experience.

Perhaps it’s time to go another route and hire someone who is younger and has an offensive mind.  The league is increasingly becoming an offensive league, and the Broncos have not had a good offense since the 2014 season.  I think going this route is the smartest way to go.

And if we do hire Nathaniel Hackett specifically, perhaps Aaron Rodgers would be even more willing to come to Denver if he still wants to move on from Green Bay.
