Broncos Roundtable: What does success look like for Denver the rest of the season?

OK gents, the playoffs have been sort of an amusing thought for a couple of weeks and, even though Denver has not yet been mathematically eliminated, you could sense after Sunday’s loss to Las Vegas that players finally were starting to realize the reality of golf season beginning in early January.

So, what constitutes success the rest of the way? Not sure how you get much more than 6-11 out of this closing run unless something dramatic changes. So, in that context, the best thing the Broncos can hope for is a heater from Russell Wilson. The kind of stretch that makes teammates, coaches, bosses and prospective free agents think, “he’s still that guy.” It would do everybody in the organization well, perhaps nobody more so than coach Nathaniel Hackett.

My gut tells me GM George Paton’s two big hires at head coach and quarterback might both be duds. I have a feeling the booing Empower Field faithful would be inclined to agree with me. That leaves the last seven games for Hackett and Wilson to prove me and those boo-birds wrong.
