The broncos do the right thing and realize Sean Payton is the coach the team needs


Round and round, this crazy carousel of coaches spun out of control for 35 days, with the Broncos chasing their tails until CEO Greg Penner finally stepped down, came to his senses, and hired Sean Payton, the most qualified candidate to teach. to quarterback Russell Wilson how to roll again.

I will stand up and applaud this Broncos move, as soon as my head stops spinning.

As Penner found out the hard way, it’s much easier to sell 1.5 billion pounds of bananas at Walmart in a year than it is to acquire a solid professional football coach in a month.

But once the dust settles and the heads clear, while DeMeco Ryans makes his wife happy by performing a concert in Houston and Jim Harbaugh continues his endless game of footsie with NFL suitors, two things will become apparent in the end. of this bumpy and often circuitous road. traveled by the rich and crazy Waltons to hire a veteran coach with a Super Bowl ring to end seven long years of misery in Broncos country.

#1: It’s never too late to do the right thing.

No. 2: Payton was the best man for the job since the jump.

So what took so long?

I blame Broncos general manager George Paton, the moron who stupidly gave Wilson a $245 million contract extension before the quarterback threw his first bad interception in a Denver uniform.

If the price of acquiring Wilson from Seattle in a trade hadn’t been so high, with a treasure trove of future draft picks shipped to the Seahawks, hiring Payton would have been a no-brainer. Instead, the Broncos dithered and dithered when New Orleans suggested it would take not one, but two first-round picks to release Payton from his contract obligations to the Saints.

So the Broncos chased Harbaugh all the way to Michigan, courting a diva who’d rather be chased than caught. Let’s all breathe a sigh of relief that Harbaugh didn’t say yes-no-maybe to Penner because those kinds of commitment issues are the last tasteless things needed by a Broncos franchise that’s been hard to love these last times.
