The issues with the Broncos are apparent. No. 1: In plain English, Vance Joseph is in over his head as the head coach. No. 2: Without Peyton Manning and free agents who have departed, John Elway is not very good at making decisions regarding quarterbacks, draft choices and coaches. And No. 3: This ownership by committee must end. The trustees have sided with the younger Bowlen daughter, because she is younger and won’t be ready until they decide she’s ready, which will be 2025, 2030 or 2035? The Broncos are a family-owned business, and the family should run it as such. If they can’t, sell the team.
Kiz: The trustees who run this family business are only as strong as the trust Broncos Country puts in president Joe Ellis. If the Broncos endure another 5-11 season, the NFL might be persuaded to take another look at how the team is being operated. Here’s guessing at least one Bowlen heir would be in favor of that.
How about you leave Von Miller’s name out of your negative mouth, Kiz? You’re the worst columnist in the history of Denver sports.
Kevin, sacking the scribe
Kiz: Miller has failed to record a sack during the Broncos’ three-game losing streak. Please accept my apology for noting an inconvenient truth. But this is what Miller had to say about his recent performance: “I haven’t been playing the run well and I haven’t been rushing the passer well over the last couple of weeks. I can fix that. I like living in a world where it’s me and the problem is me, because the quickest way to fix it is me.”
Letting defensive coordinator Wade Phillips get away was the biggest mistake “Teflon John” has made, surpassing the blunders of Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch and Vance Joseph. Saving money is fine, but destroying the defense that carried the Broncos to the Super Bowl was unforgivable.
Kiz: What Elway attempted to do is a tried-and-true NFL practice. He let an expensive veteran (Phillips) walk and replaced him with a cheaper young prospect (Joe Woods). The problem? So far, Woods has been as bad at coordinating the defense as Lynch was at playing quarterback.
I am asking your sage advice, Kiz. The Browns have a better record than the Broncos! Is that a sign of the apocalypse or a sign it’s time to move to Cleveland?
Richard, Castle Pines
Kiz: Well, if it’s a sign of the apocalypse, here’s hoping the world doesn’t end until after ski season, because those first flakes of snow have me stoked. And regardless of how many games the Broncos lose, wouldn’t living in Cleveland be worse than enduring the apocalypse?
And today’s parting shot is proof how the agony of defeat can bring out the irrational fanatic in the best of us.
Do you think we could pull the wool over the eyes of our friends from Canada again, the way we did with Troy Tulowitzki? Trade Nolan Arenado, Trevor Story and Ian Desmond to Toronto for a dozen used baseballs.
