Being thankful that the Broncos coaching situation looks solid

The Las Vegas Raiders have lost their head coach which is no surprise to anyone who is a fan of the Denver Broncos. Let’s take a moment to be happy about what is building in Denver.

Let’s take a moment to be thankful that we’ve found solid coaching in Sean Payton and the future for the Denver Broncos is looking brighter each week.

Yes, we are 3-5, and that kind of sucks. But this looks like a team that is building something, not falling apart. I don’t even know if this team can get to a winning record by the end of the season, but I know for sure that we’re not lost in the wilderness like the Las Vegas Raiders.

I’m honestly sad to see Josh McDaniels get fired. I would have hoped he would have held on somehow for one more season so that we could rest easy in Broncos Country knowing that the Raiders were going to suck for at least one more year.

But, alas.

Yeah, Raiders fans. That guy is an awful head coach. Your team will be better for firing him for sure. I just wish you would have waited until after the season so he’d be at the helm for our match ups with you this year.
