Denver Broncos fire head coach Nathaniel Hackett
The Denver Broncos will be moving on without their head coach, Nathaniel Hackett, who has now been fired following 11 losses in 15 games. Quarterback Russell Wilson has said that he is devastated and wishes he could have played a better game for him.
The most important game is the one between the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Rams, which the Broncos lost 51-14. Wilson had one of the worst numbers in his whole career. Wilson is currently completing a season-low 54.2% of his passes.
Hackett was tasked with leading the Broncos back to the playoffs for the first time since Super Bowl 50 win. His pairing with Wilson was dubbed the most anticipated, with a better chance of helping the team. Things didn’t go as expected, and the Broncos sat at 4-11.
Wilson’s 11-year career has its lowest number of touchdown passes in the season, with 12 being the not-so-happy figure. Furthermore, the QB rating of 82.6 raises many questions.
Media’s interaction with Wilson shares how devastated the quarterback is by the firing of their head coach. Calling him a great teacher, Wilson says that he wishes he could have played a better game for the person who spent a lot of time bringing the team together and taking it to the best scenario.
This season has been a season we never thought was going to happen, adds Russell Wilson.
2022 was not an ideal year for the offense of the Broncos, which was seen struggling throughout the year. While the QB is expected to stay a little longer, Hackett will, unfortunately, have to part ways with his teammates.
The general manager believes that Wilson can still be fixed, giving the Broncos hope that they can yet do miracles in the coming days. The Broncos’ next two opponents are the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers.
Previous game against the Los Angeles Rams was far superior in every respect. From the first whistle, the Rams held the lead. Except for the third quarter, the Broncos restricted the Rams to just three scores. They made a mistake because they were incapable of contributing a single point. There has also been a victory for NFL betting sites, therefore they have been on the alert.
However, the Broncos have recently triumphed. When they faced the Arizona Cardinals, who had a record of 4-10 at the time, similar to the Broncos’ at the time, the final score was 24-15 in their favor. The Cardinals maintained a lead of 3 points in the first half, but the Broncos gained a 12-point advantage after the break, with the majority of those scores coming in the fourth quarter.
Due to Hackett’s departure, the next head coach faces a monumental challenge in guiding the Broncos to a respectable season record.
