Broncos fire Nathaniel Hackett, but GM who brought in Russell Wilson is spared

They say you really learn through trial and error, so Monday was an important step in the ownership of the Penner Group.

After a 51–14 loss to the Rams Sunday that dropped Denver to 4–11, it fired coach Nathaniel Hackett and publicly declared that general manager George Paton would be brought into the fold to help find his replacement. This was a move so expected, so painfully by the book when it comes to standard NFL operating procedure, that we barely batted an eye. The people closest to power, those who have the ability to shape the narrative, survive. That, of course, is the problem. How long will it take for the Broncos to find out?
