There has been debate in Denver whether the Broncos chose correctly in selecting Vance Joseph over Kyle Shanahan in their head-coach search.

Shanahan’s 6-10 record in 2017 doesn’t make much case that the Broncos were mistaken.  Really, the only noise the Niners have made in 30 years has come from the controversy surrounding Colin Kaepernick.

San Francisco has had recent success with the Giants and Warriors.  It’s a good sports town and it deserves better than the Niners.  Like the NBA’s Lakers, there is a pretend air of superiority around the San Francisco team that hasn’t been justified since Joe Montana went to Kansas City.

The Jimmy Garroppolo bubble should fully have burst by the time the Broncos come to town.  The remainder of his 5-year $137 million contract should be enough to ensure the Niners remain bad well into the future.

Prediction: Broncos (11-2, 3-1) 39-11
