The Denver Broncos offense is costing the team a chance at the playoffs, and they have decided to make a change. NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport tweeted that the Broncos are firing offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.
I am not entirely sure if this is a Vance Joseph decision, or if general manager John Elway had a chat with him to make this decision. The Broncos offense has been a huge problem, although it feels like this is more an issue of poor personnel options at the quarterback position and along the offensive line more than anything else.
John Elway was a great quarterback in his day, but as an evaluator of offensive talent, he has been less than stellar — particularly at the quarterback position. 2016 first round pick Paxton Lynch is struggling to establish himself, and Trevor Siemian has turned into more of what we expect from Trevor Siemian. The team signed Brock Osweiler after the Cleveland Browns cut him, and that has gone about as well as expected.
But hey, maybe changing offensive coordinators is the answer.
