Denver Broncos head coach Vance Joseph has been hammered this week by fans and media as the team slumped to a four-game losing streak. As a coaching staff, they are all searching for answers.
As bad as things are, Joseph isn’t ‘in over his head’ as many fans insist. He isn’t dumb. He isn’t unqualified. He’s working hard. He’s looking at everything. He wants to win as much as every one of us.
On Monday, he admitted that they have to change something.
“Well, you have to change something,” Joseph said. “We can’t continue to go down the same path and expect different results. That’s insanity, right? We have to change something, whether it’s personnel, whether it’s how we gameplan or how we call plays or how we play as a football team together—offensively, defensively and teams together. That’s also a thought. I have to figure it out. That’s obviously being explored. How do we win as a team? And win cleaner and play a cleaner, competitive game on Sunday.”
Two days later, he and the coaching staff has probably looked at a lot of different ways to improve this football team. The biggest task is to figure out how to get the offense off to a fast start.
It’s been a tough situation at quarterback, but it is on the offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and Joseph to find a workable solution to generate yards and points. McCoy did it with Tim Tebow in 2011, but so far he hasn’t found a similar magic formula for this version of the Broncos offense.
This drama is unfolding with the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots coming to town with the Broncos season hanging in the balance.
