Shawn Drotár and TJ Carpenter from Mile High Sports look at why the Denver Broncos should not fire head coach Vance Joseph with four games left of the 2017 season.
In Joseph’s first year as head coach the Broncos started 3-1, but have lost eight games in a row to fall to the bottom of the AFC West in a year they could have been in the mix to win it with largely the same players that went 9-7 in 2016.
Next up for the Broncos is the New York Jets, a team apparently tanking in 2017 by cleaning house, but have performed above expectations despite being bottom of the AFC East.
The Broncos then face the Indianapolis Colts, bottom of the AFC South and also 3-9 on the season, on Thursday Night Football in week 15.
The next two games could determine the top five order for the 2018 NFL Draft, games the Broncos would ideally like to lose to gain higher draft selection as they look to rebuild next season.
Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was moved on, but whether Joseph is part of those draft decisions remains to be seen, but now is not the time to get rid of him and the other coaches.
