Writers Start to Question Joseph's Job Security

After an absolutely embarrassing performance against the New York Jets, one in which the team’s supposedly stout defense allowed 323 (!) rushing yards, more and more writers are calling for John Elway to put an end to the Vance Joseph era.

And it’s about time.

  I doubt very much he’s enjoying this mess any more than fans are. Time to end the misery.

Here’s what they’re saying:

  • Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post

    • “After another smelly loss by Broncos, John Elway must ask Gary Kubiak to replace Vance Joseph as coach.”

  • Matt Verdarame of Fansided:

    • “The Denver Broncos are clearly headed towards another lost season, and head coach Vance Joseph must take responsibility for the team’s failures.”

  • Frank Schwab of Yahoo Sports:

    • “Over the course of seven days, Joseph’s seat became perhaps the hottest in the entire NFL. The Broncos blew a 10-point lead against the Kansas City Chiefs at home on Monday night, then they were blown out on Sunday by the New York Jets. The Broncos scored the first seven points, then the Jets scored 34 of the next 37. It was a brutal performance in every conceivable way.”

  • Chad Jensen of 247Sports:

    • The fanbase is restless and tired of the excuses. Those of us who cover the team have run out of ways to explain away the comedy errors and prop up this coaching staff.

      After losing on the road to a 1-3 team, I'm not sure there's a single NFL club the Broncos could beat right now, and if that's not an indictment on Vance Joseph, I don't know what is. 

      The 2018 season already feels like it's out of control. The Broncos invested heavily into personnel this past offseason, and it has not paid dividends.”

Honestly, what more can be said that hasn’t already been said?
