Denver Broncos head coach Vic Fangio is not happy about the way Sunday’s game ended against the Chicago Bears.

Denver appeared to have the victory in hand when the clock struck zeroes in the fourth quarter against the Bears Sunday. Then, the officiating crew refereeing the game gave Chicago one second back, and Eddie Pineiro drilled a 53-yard game-winner on the final play of the game.

Fangio believes the officials erred.

Quite honestly, he’s right. And furthermore, the Broncos were shafted twice by the refs in the same drive. Previously, Bradley Chubb was hit with a 15-yard roughing-the-passer penalty that was as bogus as a fake dollar bill.

Fangio and the Broncos certainly are justified in being very upset with the way that game ended. But now it’s time to move on and leave the bitter complaining to the fans.
