With every game that goes by, writing about this team becomes more and more mind-numbing. The constant thread of what I talk about with other Denver Broncos fans is always, “what else is there to say that hasn’t already been said?”

This team sucks.

They have a losing culture from top to bottom. It isn’t just the head coach. It isn’t just the QB. It isn’t the pathetic drafting before George Paton took over. It isn’t some of the head-scratching moves Paton has decided to make.

It is all of it stirred up, mashed together, and plopped on our plates every Sunday like a wet turd for us to enjoy as fans of this team.

Did Nathaniel Hackett throw Russell Wilson under the bus?

  Did Nathaniel Hackett throw Russell Wilson under the bus? The Denver Broncos made life easier on the Las Vegas Raiders when they threw an incomplete pass on third down late in Sunday’s game, and head coach Nathaniel Hackett seemed to indicate that the mistake was on Russell Wilson. The Broncos were leading 16-13 when they got the ball with 3:05 remaining. They picked up one first down and forced the Raiders to use all of their timeouts. Denver then had third down coming out of the two-minute warning, and they called a pass play. Wilson threw an incompletion, which stopped the clock and forced the Broncos to punt with 1:53 left in regulation.Hackett was asked about the play after the game.

I’m sick and tired of flaccid offense, empty coach-speak, and talk about how close this team is (all their games have been 1-score, dontchaknow!).

Defense

We laud the Broncos’ defense all season long for their great play (and you can in all seriousness argue that they did a solid job this week). But at the end of the game needing to step up big, this defense fell apart.

They weren’t ready for the big pass over the middle.

Our future all-pro corner wasn’t ready for a deep corner move by the Raider’s only real offensive receiving threat.

Offense

I liked the play-calling change this week. The only shining positive from this game was that the offense really did look and feel more productive and consistent.

Not all the blame falls on Josh McDaniels in Las Vegas

  Not all the blame falls on Josh McDaniels in Las Vegas Condemning McDaniels is a daily occurrence in Las Vegas, but is the beleaguered coach deserving of the bulk of the blame?"I'll defend the Raiders again... I don't think it's a bad team," said brash Fox Sports host Colin Cowherd. "Look at all the chaos McDaniels had to overcome.

That being said, the players and coaches had so many plays where they could have put the game away and they didn’t.

They play scared from top to bottom and they lack any level of “go for the throat” mentality that you like to see in winning NFL offensive football.

  • Kendall Hinton deserves a more consistent role in this offense. He’s a baller and all he does is make plays
  • Melvin Gordon III has finally been let go and it is at least half a year too late. Bringing him back at his lackluster production level was a mistake. That it took this many fumbles in big situations to cut him loose speaks volumes about the poor decisions up the chain from the players.
  • Cortland Sutton has a lot of work to do. He’s good for a drop every game that hits him in the hand and I’m really starting to wonder just how fleeced we got from his contract extension when we haven’t seen any semblance of game-changing plays from our supposed #1 WR.

Special Teams

The Special Teams units were mind-bogglingly bad in this game. Our return game was absolutely pathetic with at least 3 guys missing easy blocks every time the Las Vegas Raiders kicked off.

Horse Tracks: When could the Broncos potentially move on from Russell Wilson?

  Horse Tracks: When could the Broncos potentially move on from Russell Wilson? Ideally, Wilson will be healthy in 2023 & we’ll see his play improve under a different coach. But what if that doesn’t happen?At this point, Russell Wilson has six & a half seasons left on his contract with the Denver Broncos. And while early returns have been very bad, there are also some extenuating circumstances- head coach Nathaniel Hackett’s incompetence & stubborn refusal to change what isn’t working, for one. A massive rash of injuries for another. And the fact that Wilson is quietly playing through both shoulder and hamstring injuries for a third.

Brandon McManus kicked one of the shortest field goal attempts ever and kept the ball low where it could be easily blocked for some stupid reason.

Final Thoughts

I guess the Broncos got rid of one of their problems on the roster. That’s a step forward at some level.

But when I look at this team from the 20,000 foot view, I see charred, smoldering rubble. This team is broken. The Head Coach is a dead man walking and all the Melvin Gordon move did was kick the can down the road another week.

We’ve seen enough of this pathetic effort week in and week out. Is this product what we should expect from the Walton-Penner Family Ownership Group? Why even sell the franchise if this team is not going to hold any semblance of accountability to anyone for the garbage effort and results that they keep trotting out?

Kelce will play in his 170th game for the Eagles. This will break Hall of Famer Chuck Bednarik's record for most regular-season games played by an offensive lineman in the team's proud history. It's safe to say Kelce has been Mr. Reliable for the Eagles. Sunday night's game will also be his 133th consecutive start for the Eagles.
