FanPulse: Fan confidence reaches new lows after TNF debacle

New, comments

Fan confidence in the Denver Broncos has reached all-time lows after their 30-6 drubbing at home in front of a national audience.

It’s been a trying year for both the Denver Broncos players and coaches, as well as the teams fans. As you can see from the chart above, we fans want to believe in this team, but all hope has finally been lost after their 30-6 home debacle to the hated Chiefs.

To give you an idea of how bad things have gotten from a FanPulse confidence level, here is our journey since the end of last season.

We’re tied with Bengals fans for the fourth worst ranking here, just above the Jets, Redskins, and Falcons.

The fact is, we just have to be patient with this team as they rebuild. Head Coach Vic Fangio alluded to this reality when asked about the Indianapolis Colts roster this week.

“You’ve got to build your team through the draft. There’s no two ways about that, and supplement it through free agency when the opportunity arises.”

Until 2018, it seemed like John Elway did things the opposite way. It takes time to rebuild and remake a roster. Perhaps this is just the rock bottom on the way to rising.
