You are right, he is in over his head.Personally, I think Denver needs to fire that coach. He has no idea what he's doing. They are very lucky to be 2-2.
I was not happy with that hire to start with, I thought it was a hail mary to try to get Rodgers from Green Bay.
He continually makes mistakes in game management even after he hired a game management coach to help.
Even last night, at the end of regulation when they got into field goal range it should have been run the clock, kick the FG and let the D make the Colts get a TD to win the game. Instead Russ throws a really bad pick and the Colts tie the game on a long FG. That can be laid at Russ' feet, you can't throw that ball and get intercepted but the play call was bad as well.
Then at the end of OT, the Broncos need 3 points to tie the game and I think they had something like 2:30 on the clock. The lined up and burned a timeout. I was thinking that they needed to kick the FG to tie it up in OT, kick off to the Colts and burns the time outs and the two minute warning to get the ball back. Worse case is the clock runs out and you tie. Best case is the D holds the Colts to a three and out and Russ gets the ball back with something like 40 seconds left to drive into FG range.
And with the rare air in Denver a 61 yard FG to win the game is a better chance than what they had in Seattle.
