Speculation across Broncos Country abounds that Denver’s high-priced head coach has been tanking the team since he got here. How else, folks wonder, could he justify Bringing Vance Joseph back into the building? He’s made plenty of other questionable calls, as well, on his way to a 1-4 record.
This clip only adds fuel to the fire.

Is this evidence that the tanking theory is accurate? You tell me.
