I think we all can agree now that the Denver Broncos stink. yeah, they are not very good. However, there is one bright spot for their team, and that could potentially be taken away by the time the 2023 season starts.
2023 is still a long time away, but this is the NFL, and things happen fast.
If there was one thing you could point out about this Broncos team that was somewhat positive, your best bet would be the defense, right? Because they have been pretty good.
In fact, if the offense allowed the defense to stay off the field a bit more, then I think we would be talking about a top-five defense right now. But, that’s not how it has happened so far this season.
They are still a good defense nonetheless.
That part of the Broncos team could be taken away in 2023, as Tom Pelissero of NFL Network predicts Broncos defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero could be on the move next year, as he will be a young name team could add as their head coach.

As for some AFC West news, this could be bad for the Broncos, as their only bright spot this year could be gone by the next.https://t.co/UtrsBlCcyM
“Evero’s defense has been a bright spot in a frustrating season for Denver, allowing 19 points or fewer in eight of nine games… He has coached all three phases — offense, defense, and special teams — at various spots and been well-regarded at each stop over 15 NFL seasons, including the past five with the Rams, winning a Super Bowl last season as Los Angeles’ secondary coach/passing game coordinator.
“This is still just Evero’s first year as an NFL coordinator, but he doesn’t get rattled and has shown a knack for adjusting on game day. Learning from the likes of Vic Fangio in San Francisco, Mike McCarthy and Dom Capers in Green Bay and Sean McVay with the Rams has given Evero a unique blend of perspectives.”
Pelissero made a ton of good points, including the fact that Evero has a defense that allows only 19 points per game or fewer in eight of nine games. They allow just 16 points per game on the season and have allowed the least amount of points scored on them this season.
Denver is also the sixth-best third-down defense in the league, allowing opponents to convert only 34.65% of their third downs, per TeamRankings.com.
If I’m the Broncos, Evero might be the one guy I want back next year. However, that may not happen.
