This Week Outlook
The Denver Broncos have requested permission to interview Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans and Rams defensive coordinator Rahim Morris.
The Broncos head coaching job will be one of the more interesting situations of the offseason. It seems they want to go more of the defensive approach requesting to interview three defensive coordinators. Jim Harbaugh is also reportedly in the mix as well for the job.
The Denver Broncos have received permission from the New Orleans Saints and have begun talking with Sean Payton to potentially bring him on as the next head coach.
The Denver Broncos have already fired Nathaniel Hackett after the team largely failed public expectations. Now in search of a new head coach, the Broncos are in discussions with Payton. Payton is still under contract with the Saints, and a trade would likely need to happen for Denver to acquire him.
The Broncos D/ST allowed 27 points to Kansas City while recording an interceptions and recovering a fumble in a Week 17 loss.
Facing a daunting task in Patrick Mahomes on Sunday, the Denver defense held for as long as they could in Arrowhead. The Chiefs' superstar QB would prove to be too much, as he ended up firing for 328 yards and three scores on the day. The Broncos' defense will get one more tough task in the Chargers in Week 18 before their offseason mercifully commences.
The Broncos fired Nathaniel Hackett on Monday.
After an embarrassing 51-14 loss against the Rams on Sunday, the Broncos have fired Hackett. It was a disastrous first season for him as a head coach as the Broncos currently have the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft which is headed to the Seahawks. The Broncos will now look this offseason for a new head coach to try and help completely turn this team and Russell Wilson around.
The Broncos' D/ST allowed 45 points to the Rams on Christmas Day without recording a single sack or generating a turnover.
This was as bad as it could get for the Denver defense, each player deserving of a fat lump of coal given the effort. The team was completely checked out from the opening kickoff, and the defense allowed the Rams to score on every single possession they had in the game. Denver's no good miserable season will now head to Arrowhead Stadium in Week 17, where the Chiefs will finish thrusting the dagger into the heart of down-bad Broncos' fans everywhere.
