To say the Vance Joseph era in Denver has been disappointing would be a major understatement.
Vance Joseph has led the #Broncos to:
– Longest losing streak (8 games) in 50 years
– 1st shutout loss in 25 yrs
– 1st L at home to #Bengals since '75
– 1st L to #Browns since '90
– 1st L to CLE in Denver in 46 yrs
– Consecutive losing seasons for 1st time since '72 (possibly)

After battling their way to a 6-6 record with one of the most favorable slates in the NFL, they’ve dropped three straight games and are out of the playoff picture as they wrap up against the Chargers in Week 17.
#Broncos players swear devotion to HC Vance Joseph. Consecutive defeats to the Niners, Browns and Raiders says more.

It’s expected that GM John Elway is going to end Joseph’s tenure at season’s end, which is reflected in Bovada’s odds. Let’s see if there’s any chance Joseph makes it to a third year at the helm.

*Odds taken 12/27
The Broncos will look back at this season and catch missed opportunity after missed opportunity. This is a team that has suffered losses to the Jets, 49ers, Browns, and Raiders, four teams that have combined for 40 losses on the season.

But the calls for Joseph’s ousting came loudest in Week 15 in a must-win against the Browns.
With about four minutes to go in the game, trailing 17-13 and facing a 4th-and-1 from the Browns’ 6-yard line, the Broncos opted for the field goal and not to go for it.

While they did get the ball back with a chance to win, the football gods were not impressed. Neither were the players.

The Broncos weren’t the deepest roster, but had good talent at key positions. Once their star players started going down, however, so did the level of play.
Brutal year with injuries for the Broncos …
Emmanuel Sanders – Achilles
Chris Harris Jr. – leg fracture
Phillip Lindsay – wrist
Jeff Heuerman -ribs
Jake Butt -ACL
Matt Paradis – leg fracture
Ron Leary – Achilles
Max Garcia – ACL

This was a team that got massive production from a fantastic draft class, led by Bradley Chubb and Phillip Lindsay, giving the Broncos an above-average defense and stellar run game, which should have been enough to compete.

But with the absence of strong quarterbacking, the Broncos just didn’t have enough to make up for the losses and to plain steal a game here or there.
Over the last two years, the Broncos have worked through Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch, and Brock Osweiler before settling on Case Keenum this year.
He’s by far the best QB Joseph has had to work with, and he’s thrown for just under 3,600 yards with 17 TDs and 14 INTs on the year. It wasn’t the production necessary to pull out games the Broncos needed to win.
Paxton Lynch, Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Case Keenum. I have nothing personal against these men, but the notion that Vance Joseph was given adequate talent at the "most important position in football" is laughable. Especially when you consider that his GM is John Elway

Even if the Broncos pull together for their coach and put forward the best performance of the year against the Chargers, the only wager to make here is Joseph not being back next season.
There’s not much of a return on your dollars, but there’s no way Elway brings back the only head coach in franchise history that’s compiled back-to-back losing seasons.
Perhaps a new perspective can maximize Keenum’s talents, and, with another strong draft class, place the Broncos back into the winner’s circle, competing for playoff spots and championships.
