On Tuesday, Fangio spoke to the media to wrap up the 2020 season and about finding the right replacement for Elway. Here's what we learned.
When the Broncos relegated Michael Ojemudia to a lesser role last month, Vic Fangio offered this advice to him: "Your opportunity is going to come faster than you think, so just be ready." It arrived in Kansas City, and in the last two games, Ojemudia has delivered.
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is this: It can always get worse. But it has also been a test of character. Sunday, the Broncos showed why they're passing that test.
While it isn't yet time to write the eulogy for the Broncos' 61st and most unusual season, the Broncos' struggles to protect the football on offense and pry it loose on defense offer a clear reason why the team has yet to gain any traction in the AFC race.

If at least one cornerback emerges as a quality No. 3 behind projected starters A.J. Bouye and Bryce Callahan, Denver would possess the capability of having a smooth rush-and-cover partnership. But at some point, that No. 3…...
There are plenty of reasons why Michael Ojemudia should be the Broncos’ third CB, despite being a rookie.
It could be the defense that carries the Broncos. And if it does, that D will rely on some new additions of its own to reach its potential.
