There goes Broncos head coach Vance Joseph again, clearly having the time of his life.
During his fun-filled first season at the helm, he's watched his team absolutely fall apart. The offense can't generate any sort of momentum, his playmakers rarely do anything to influence games, and a highly-regarded defense suddenly can't stifle as much as a cough.
There's plenty to criticize Joseph about. But there is nothing worse than the way he's handling the Paxton Lynch situation.
For some unexplainable reason, despite such epic troubles at quarterback, the young signal-caller has been promoted to just second on the Broncos' quarterback depth chart following his return from injury.

This team is currently in the middle of a five-game losing streak, and Joseph's postgame quotes make it sound like this season is as good as done. Why would you stick with what's not working instead of building for the future?
Lynch was expected to be the man behind center for years to come when he was drafted in the first round of last year's NFL Draft, and now has a perfect opportunity to get more game reps under his belt.
It must make you think-- what exactly has to happen for Lynch to get his shot? It's hard to imagine things getting drearier in Denver.
