Vic Fangio took his two timeouts with him to the postgame press convention
Fangio’s clock administration has come underneath query after the Titans eventual drive to take the lead late in Denver left Drew Lock with slightly below 20 seconds to get to his opponent’s 30-yard line for a sensible probability at a game-winning area objective. Such expectations are unfair, and regardless of Denver’s lackluster offensive output, this loss falls squarely on the shoulders of their head coach who was ill-prepared to present his staff one ultimate probability to win.
The Broncos had been fortunate to even be inside placing distance after three missed area targets and a failed additional level by Stephen Gostkowski, who continued the Titans kicker curse on Monday Night time Soccer. But, Gostkowski’s redemption ultimately sunk Denver given Fangio was apparently relying on the longtime Patriot to go Zero-for-Four…or so we hope.
Twitter roasted Fangio, and for good cause
Did Fangio’s gaff alone price the Broncos a win? In fact not, however in the long run each end result falls squarely on his shoulders, particularly with a younger quarterback on the helm. Fangio’s been within the league for many years, and falling asleep on the wheel in such a giant second is inexcusable.
The Broncos seemed removed from a menace to the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs within the AFC West on Monday evening, and whereas it’s solely Week 1, that’s a takeaway they’ll should reside with for now.
