What is the difference between the 2022 Denver Broncos and a dumpster fire? You don’t pay to watch a dumpster fire.
Honestly, the Broncos are awful this year, and their current head coach Nathaniel Hackett could be gone this time next year. The Broncos’ brand-new ownership’s investment in quarterback Russell Wilson and an entirely new coaching staff has resulted in… well, a dumpster fire.
The Broncos are last in the AFC West, despite being a sexy preseason Super Bowl pick. The Broncos went from Kansas City’s kryptonite to the NFL basement in a matter of weeks. Rumors are already flying that the Broncos are already scouting Hackett’s replacements, and Bieniemy could be on their shortlist.
Denver interviewed Bieniemy for their head coaching job following the 2021 season. The team cast a wide net, interviewing ten total candidates during the offseason. So, Bieniemy’s inclusion could simply be a product of that wide net. But he has recent ties to the team, years in a successful and completive franchise, and would be an offensive-minded head coach. Offensive struggles have plagued the Broncos this year, but Denver has maintained a decent defensive unit. The fit makes sense, and both parties were linked last offseason. There are crazier theories than Bieniemy wearing blue and orange next year.
