..and here they are at 3-6 before Thanksgiving!
Went to the Donkeys/Pats game, last night. Buddy of mine had the good ol' free tickets, which fit right into my budget. So, yeah, somebody gave away tickets to a Sunday Night Football nationally televised prime time game against the mighty Patriots. About 40% New England fans in the place. Further destroying the myth that "Bronco fans are ALWAYS with their team... but only if they're going to the playoffs and/or look good on any particular week". Really one of the more boring games I've ever seen, live.
The coaching concerns become more apparent, every week. This week, I noticed twice that special teams players were desperately running onto the field, hoping they'd make it to the line before the snap. Two guys even had their chin-straps un-buckled. That's a total lack of preparation. When I was coaching high school, we'd always have to say: "punt team, get ready" at the end of second down (or whatever fourth down team was pending). Lack of discipline and that points to coaching.
I'm thinking Vance Joseph is gone at the end of the year... but now I'm hearing all sorts of calls for his immediate dismissal.
There's enough stuff I'd rather watch on TV than Bronco games. I'll follow, but wont actively seek them out. Unless, of course, free tickets show up again.
