The Denver Broncos will have a bye this week, giving them extra time to prepare for Week 12 and their seven remaining games this season.

That extra time would be a good window to make changes to the coaching staff, particularly on special teams. Denver has had a serious blunder on special teams in seven of its ten games, including a blocked field goal in Week 10.

Those mistakes have fans calling for special teams coordinator Tom McMahon to be fired, but coach Vic Fangio is not ready to make that move.

“No, there wouldn’t be,” Fangio said Monday when asked if there will be any thought given to making leadership changes on special teams. “Both Tom and I have to do a better job with coaching the special teams. We have to give it to our players and coach them better so that we don’t have these types of plays happen.”

The Broncos are also sticking with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur despite poor results on offense. Fangio appears content to stick it out with his staff, hoping to salvage the team’s season with the coaches in place.
