Mike Purcell snapping on Russell Wilson while Nathaniel Hackett pretends not to hear what’s happening right behind him is the perfect microcosm of where the Broncos are at.
That locker room is 100% divided, and now we could see it publicly That exchange between Purcell and Wilson will be all over social media and talked about for the next week. If you weren’t gonna fire Hackett before its pretty much impossible not to now after that. #BroncosCountry
If the Broncos get blown out by the 3-8 Panthers, does Nathaniel Hackett get fired on Monday?
You can't defend George Paton at this point. Even if some smaller decisions have been good, his biggest ones have been massive failures:
1) Hiring Hackett
2) Trading for Russ
3) Giving Russ $245M
He's set this franchise back years.
If the #Broncos don’t fire Nathaniel Hackett after this game, then questions will start arising whether or not they have the right ownership group
I think this is @Broncos
HC Hackett’s last game, if they don’t find a way to win this game against the @Panthers
. Look for Dom Capers to be named the Head Coach.
Nathaniel Hackett pretending not to hear anything
If I owned the Broncos I'd fire Nathaniel Hackett on the flight home and bring in a coach from the outside to finish the season and see if he can figure out what's wrong with Russell Wilson. The investment in Russ is too great not to try to get it fixed ASAP.
I have no narrative to push.
I have no bias to confirm.
I advocated strongly for his hiring.
It's time for the #Broncos to fire Nathaniel Hackett.
It’s no longer a question of if, but when.
When does Nathaniel Hackett get fired?
Mike Purcell chewing out Russell Wilson on the sideline was the most fire by any Broncos player today. (Hackett stood by oblivious to it all)
If the Broncos lose this game Hackett should be canned before they touch down in Denver
Broncos can’t let Nathaniel Hackett back on the plane back to Denver.
I don’t have a source with the new ownership group. But I know several in the Broncos organization who believe Hackett is likely done. Sighting “zero accountability” and “refusing to change things that are clearly not working”, I’m told he’s out. Question is when not if.
"Penner can’t wait for Paton to knock on his door & suggest they fire Hackett. Nope, Penner needs to knock on Paton’s door & tell him it's happening. Patience is thin in Broncos Country, & Penner must get involved far quicker than he imagined"
Nathaniel Hackett is now the 3rd consecutive Broncos head coach with a 3-8 record in his first 11 career games
*Vance Joseph started 3-9 before finishing 5-11.
*Vic Fangio started 3-8, won 4 of the last 5 and finished 7-9 https://t.co/To7DWwUjEb
Right in front of the HC, too.
Total lack of respect for Hackett but I'm sure we'll be told how he has the locker room together https://t.co/nDnTdrk27C
#Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett’s job is on the line.
#Broncos QB Russell Wilson’s personal office at HQ is on the line.
Opinion | "Losing his ever-loving mind, sick of losing, and screaming at his quarter-billion dollar bust of a quarterback to do something about it, big bad Mike Purcell spoke for all us in Broncos Country." (via @MarkKiszla) #BroncosCountry #DENvsCAR https://t.co/B99CCdwNiZ
Here’s how you can win a game, Broncos, and it’s really simple:
1. Fire Nate Hackett
2. Learn how to score at least 20 points in a game
3. Fire Nate Hackett
4. Redevelop a new system for Wilson
5. FIRE NATE HACKETT YOU UNLIMITED DIARRHEA https://t.co/8YsC0owkSw
Fire Hackett and don’t even let him go to the podium to answer anything.

If it's going to happen in season tonight's the night and it won't, and that's not all bad...but i think Hackett's days as broncos coach are effectively done, sadly we can't dump Russ too
They're going to throw Hackett overboard, in part because he deserves it and in part because they have to try and salvage this.
