Denver Broncos’ rock bottom gets lower each week
The Denver Broncos played an atrocious game in Tennessee on Sunday. Coming after a bye week, the Broncos looked totally and utterly unprepared. No matter if the Broncos have two weeks to prepare or four days, the product remains the same.
No matter if they play at home or away, the product remains the same. They get called for stupid and avoidable penalties; the injuries pile up each week, and the offense simply does not come to life. No matter the circumstances, the 2022 Denver Broncos are, to put it lightly, perhaps the worst team in the NFL.
This week felt like the team hit a new level of rock bottom. It’s like when you watch an animated show, and the villain falls and hurts himself, then a few seconds later the floor gives out and the villain falls further down, then further down for comedic relief.
That’s what the Broncos feel like. Somehow, they got more injured during their bye week, as both KJ Hamler and Justin Simmons did not play Sunday. I’m not sure how a team can get more injured during a bye week. Jerry Jeudy left the game on the first offensive play with an ankle injury.
Graham Glasgow left the game and did not return, and Russell Wilson was sacked about 419 times. There is no solution for the rest of the season, and there is no reason to believe that the team can turn it around.
Honestly, there’s no use even looking at the box score, because we’ve seen this before. The offense couldn’t get anything going while the defense once again did enough to win. You’d also be right if you said Russell Wilson took a ton of sacks and the Broncos got called for a shipload of penalties.
We’re at the point where you question the qualifications of some people on the coaching staff to simply coach at the NFL level. This is becoming unwatchable, and Denver looks like a JV team.
