Broncos fire OC Mike McCoy; Bill Musgrave takes over

Accoridng to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Broncos made a decision to fire offensive coordinator Mike McCoy following Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

After starting the season 3-1, the Broncos lost six straight games and are now looking for answers.

It's hard to point the finger at the offense as the sole cause of the team's woes this season, not when Denver gave up 41 points to the Patriots last week and 51 points to the Eagles the week before that.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Broncos promoted Bill Musgrave to offensive coordinator. It would be like Burger King promoting its worst french fry cook to manager just because the manager was also terrible at making french fries. You need not worry about the semantics in the above bad analogy.

After it was over, the girl claims that Stallone threatened to "beat her head in" if she ever told anyone about what took place. The actor and his body guard would have laughed after he had made these threats, according to the police report.

The Broncos relieved Offensive Coordinator Mike McCoy of his duties Monday morning following a 20-17 loss to the Bengals. Musgrave is one of a couple of coaches in Denver that had coordinating experience prior to being hired, but as far as offensive success, he was perhaps the most qualified to run the job.

Musgrave is also in his first season with the Broncos' staff, having spent the last two years as the Raiders' offensive coordinator. Basically, in a roundabout way at least, John Elway and the franchise needed a fall guy.

McCoy was in his second stint as offensive coordinator with the Broncos before leaving to become coach of the San Diego Chargers.
