Earlier this week, we ran a survey with Denver Broncos fans to see who they prefer the next Broncos’ head coach should be. Surprisingly, the competition between the two big names wasn’t even that close. 63% of those surveyed voted for Jim Harbaugh, while only 24% went with Sean Payton.
Frankly, both Harbaugh and Payton are proven successful head coaches in the NFL and while Harbaugh has a better regular season and playoff win percentage, Payton has actually won a Super Bowl title. Either way, I won’t be displeased if one of those two ends up being hired.
This head coach search and rumors swirling the top candidates has also affected our weekly confidence polling. From a rock bottom of 4% confidence just prior to the firing of Nathaniel Hackett to a skyrocketing up to 70% after both a season-ending win over the Los Angeles Chargers and the head coach search, we’ve been on a wild ride in Broncos Country over the last month.
