Let’s get this out of the way right from the start: Vic Fangio will be back as the Broncos head coach in 2020. He’s not going to get fired. Nor should he get the ax. He deserves a second season to see if he can build upon the foundation he started to create this year.

That said, anyone who believes Fangio is definitively the right man for the job is nothing more than a homer. There was no evidence put forth this season that suggests that’s the case.

Now, that doesn’t mean there weren’t some positives. There certain were a few.

For starters, the Broncos improved from 6-10 in 2018 to 7-9 this year. While not a huge jump, and not a big enough one for the franchise to avoid a third-consecutive losing season for the first time since 1972, it was a step in the right direction. And not hitting double-digit losses again was big; that makes a huge difference heading into the offseason, as Denver looks like a team that is knocking on the door of the postseason instead of one bordering on a dumpster fire.
