I've heard it on TV. I've read it here in MHR posts. Josh McDaniels has lost 15 of his last 20 games. And now 16 of his last 21 games. I disagree with this point of view. It's a negative point of view. If we are going to judge McDaniels by his win loss record, then I think we need to be fair and judge him on his entire body of work. McDaniels is 11-16 as head coach of the Denver Broncos which is a decent record for a new head coach who is in the process of rebuilding his team.
For whatever reason the 6-0 start last season seems to be disregarded as if it never happened by some Bronco fans and members of the media. It's as if those first 6 games last season were a fluke and don't count. I don't know why. I guess it sounds more dramatic to say that McDaniels has lost 6 of his last 21 games for people that don't like him and/or don't believe in him.
My opinion is that if you have to alter the truth to make your point, and if you have to narrow down the statistics to make them say what you want them to say, then you aren't telling the whole story.
The Broncos have a new head coach and are in the process of rebuilding. There will be some growing pains during this process and I wish that Broncos Country would keep their collective chin up during this painful time. We have been very fortunate to have a team like the Denver Broncos here in our great city. As fans, we have seldom had to endure a season without playoff hopes over the last three decades. There are many NFL cities that have not been nearly as fortunate as we have. I'm as disappointed as anyone about this season, but I believe things will turn around soon for our Denver Broncos. And I believe that turn around will happen sooner than later.
