If shanahan quit after this year what coach would you want to take his place.

I would hate if he left but if he did the only coaches i would want would be mooch or gruden those are the 2 coaches i like most besides shanny.

Jeff Fisher of the Titans is a coach that I think is really good. If Shanny left, he would be fine with me as a replacement.

I would hope not, until he's at least had some experience on the college level.

I'm not thrilled about the idea of hiring a first time coach. Shanahan at least had a chance to evaluate what went wrong in Oakland, and then use his experience in SF to perfect his approach. I really think Kubiak stunted his growth by refusing the job with the Buffs.

How about Gruden as head coach, Gregg Williams as the D-Coordinator, leave Kubes in place?

I kind of disagree. Kubiak has been Shanny's right hand man since 1995. That is ten years in this organization. He knows absolutley everything that Shanny knows in how to prepare and motivate a team. Plus he had 10 years under Dan Reeves and 2 years in SF. Plus he is porbably more flexible than Shanny and will listen to others opinions more before making his own.

I'm confident that he knows how to be a head coach the only question is "would he be a good one?"

Taco John
06-23-2005, 03:53 PM
There's a difference between being a right hand man and being THE man.

It's the difference between being the Alpha Dog and the Beta Dog. Kubiak makes a fine Beta dog. He knows the pack inside and out. He knows the hunting grounds. He knows the hunting roles. He knows the pack order. But like all beta dogs, he is there because he has found favor with the Alpha dog. If the Alpha dog were to go, there's no telling if the Beta dog would be able to assume the role. It's just as likely that another dog in the pack could dominate the beta dog and become the new Alpha.

So without stretching the metaphore too thin, Kubiak had a chance to prove himself and become the Alpha dog of another organization. That would have led some insight into the question "would he be a good one?"

Personally, I think he probably would be a good HC, but I'd rather see him get experience as a head coach before he becomes The Broncos head coach. Refusing the Buffaloes job did stunt his growth, IMO, because the question of his ability as a head coach would be answered by now, instead of left up as a question mark. Instead, he's strapped himself with an image as Shanahan's boy, who might or might not pan out to be a good head coach. The fact that Jack Del Rio and Jim Mora Jr. now have HC jobs and Kubiak is still holding someone else's clipboard is about all the validation you need for that.

OC: Booby Turner, Tim Brewster, or old WR coach Hiemdinger(sp)
DC: Wade Philps (Great DC, crappy HC), New England Secondary Coach (He got a WR to play DB well)

I think refusing the Buffalo job might have been the smartest thing he could have done. He might have gotten all tangled up in what has happened to CU the last two years and that would have killed his career right their.

All I know is that he could have had a job right now but he wanted to stay in Denver until his kids graduated from school. I know he desperatly wanted the A&M Job or the Texan job but wasn't considered for either.

I think I have a pretty good understanding of Bowlen and I think he would go after Kubes. Just like he wanted Shanny at first and then settled for Fat Boy.
He likes his organization and he would want to keep it running the same way.

Vince Lombardi!

Oh wait, he's ****ing dead. George Halas! No, ****, he is dead too. Tom Landry! Crap, I think he might be dead.

Hmm, Mooch would be a good choice, since he runs a similar system and not much would change. Gruden, no. Dom Capers wouldnt be a bad choice IMO. I wanna see how Romeo Crennel does as a HC, I think he could be pretty damn good. Belichik can eat a dick and lets see how he does without that fantastic staff he had. Besides, he coaches cheaters. Bleh. Oh wait, so did shanny!

I think I would probably take Taco John as our coach. He seems to know it all, or at least he thinks he does. ;D

Mooch or Dom Capers, those would be my choices.

I echo the fact that I hope we don't lose Shanny!

My chioces;

1. Mike Hiemerdinger (he almost got the 49ers job this year), old WR coach during the good years, did a great job as O.C. in Tennessee. He may be a darkhorse... interesting to see what he'll do for the Jets, they may have made a great steal when he wasn't under contract with the Titans.

2. Jim Fassel- can't believe he's not a H.C.

3. Kubiak- I'd like to give him a shot just to see what he can do on his own.

elsid13
06-23-2005, 06:20 PM

Fisher - D focused coach that would be good here
Hiemerdinger- Ties to Shanny and done a good job as OC in Tenn and should do a good job in NY
Kubiak- I think he might surprise some people

ØrangeÇrush
06-23-2005, 08:31 PM
hmm... the question would be than, does Bowlen bring in someone who plays the same system as shanahan? Or does he go after something new...

Same system:

1.) Fassel -by virtue of being a former HC, and history with the broncos
2.) Heimerdinger - second stint as an OC
3.) Fischer -- would he leave Tennessee?
4.) Mariucci -- Would he leave all that talent in detroit.
5.) Kubiak -- Would get the shot to interview.
6.) Gruden -- Don't think he'd leave but I'd take him.
7.) Holmgren -- say what you will but he's developed a ton of starting QBs..

Different System:
1.) Marvin Lewis -- I think he's really done a good gob with the bengals.
2.) Jim Gray -- DC for Buffalo, really a darkhorse candidate.
3.) John Fox -- Give him a 1st Class Organization, Saurbaun would have to go though.
4.) Monte Kiffin -- DC Bucs, long in the tooth, but can build a defense.

hmm... basically it became an offensive vs defensive coaches....

Definite No: Gruden, because he would want the GM role as well and he is pretty awful as a GM. As only the head coach, then yeah I could dig it but he won't settle for that.

Just to be different I wouldn't mind Jim Haslett but ideally I'd take Denny Green.

Gruden would be ideal, but the Bucs would never let him go. If you look at the personnel decisions (especially the draft) that Chucky has made..... well, it could cause a good number of Bronco fans to go into shock and ultimately pass from cardiac arrest. Imagine drafting players that actually make sense. We wouldn't know how to act!

HC for Denver in the future. Gruden would be #1 in my book. Hell, the guy was hard not to like even in Oakland!

#2. Gary Kubiak. As much as he frustrates me, you know "The Plan" err... system would stay intact. Denver has become well known for it's running game, it would be a shame to even remotely get away from that.

#3. Bob Stoops. Give me a defensive minded guy that understands offenses and surrounds himself with talent any day. The more I think about it the more it makes sense to bring in a coach with his skills. I don't think he'd be an upgrade over Shanny, but I think he could do some good things..... and it would be exciting!

I am not a fan of Gruden as a coach. I think he is too erratic in his decision making. Makes more decisions based on emotion than logic.

There are plenty of good coaches out there, but we all know Shanahan will be here as long as he wants. If he steps aside to a "President" position, Kubiak is a lock and probably Dennison as OC.

Gruden reminds me of the Charlie Sheen character from Wall Street. Right place, right time....with inside info. IMO- most of the reason why he was able to win the SB his first year was because he had inside knowledge of the opponent (not to mention he inherited that team, which Tony Dungy was really responsible for building).

What has Gruden done since that SB? A boatload of nothing.

You have to remember gruden is trying to build his own team in tampa and the team he was building in oakland wasnt half bad considering they went to the super bowl give gruden a little time to build HIS team over in tampa before judging him. He ditched Dungy's team last off-season.

It is not like the Bucs got blown out of every game last year, they lost alot of close ones. With that new RB they drafted and Michael Clayton at WR, they are developing what I think will be a pretty good offense and their defense didn't suck last year.

It's all about who is available for the Broncos to get. Mike is a top 10 coach who has the record to prove it. He is not going anywhere, Bowlen would have to have somthing lined up where he knew he could get a Fisher or Gruden before he fired Mike.

I feel if Mike gets the ax we are looking at 12 years of Freaking misery with a revolving door O' coaches al-la CHICAGO BEARS, Dallas Crackheads.

Bowlen went after Mike when he canned Revees but had to wade through WADE (the other Bum) to get him 2 years later. Remember True Mediocrity?

That said if Mike got hit by a truck I send the Washington pick (if still leagal) & a bucket of $$ to Titans for Fisher. His Porn Stache would groove with Plummers.

If Shanny quit...we would spend the next few years as a losing team while the new coach changed over all the personel, that coach would then get canned, but the new coach would benefit from all the high draft picks.

John seems to carry that "it" with him everywhere. Unbelievable...a hall of famer with a legit shot to be a top GM (or owner)? Down the road. Think maybe eventually he'll own the Broncs if Bowlen moves to other interests? He'd OWN the Rocky Mountain Region.

I wouldn't even mind seeing him spot guest on MNF. I remember a couple years ago Fox wanted him to do more appearances. Jimmy Johnson got paranoid and returned to the show full time, worried about his slot.

Although he does not know how to manage the clock he is one of the most passionate coaches and always brings out the best in players. He doesn't have a team that is better then the Broncos that he works with now as far as talent goes but he has his players believe they should be superbowl champs.

Martz is a nut, a loon...he doesn't care about picks or turnovers. A truly insane method of coaching. Could you see Jake in such an offense? *falls over*

Everybody thinks that Martz is an ego maniac. But his just your average idiot with a load mouth.

The part that is comparable, I bolded in my original post. I don't want someone who can't control the clock. He can be the greatest coach in the world as far as dealing with players, but if we lose because the coach doesn't know how to manage the time, that's not giving us a fair chance to win.

If Shanahan quit, I would mentally prepare myself for Kubiak...I might not like it but I'd be planning on it

I hope not but, I agree I could see him as our coach.

Bump! Just thought it was funny how more than 5 years later we still dredge up the usual suspects.

I think herm edwards is the perfect man for the job. Shanny is very technical but herm teaches to play with your heart. Although he does not know how to manage the clock he is one of the most passionate coaches and always brings out the best in players. He doesn't have a team that is better then the Broncos that he works with now as far as talent goes but he has his players believe they should be superbowl champs.

Oh Jesus Christ dude. You should have deleted this one.

I stand by my comment. I still like him for some reason. When this was posted he was coming off a decent stint with the Jets. Herm will win the trophy one day, you can take that to the bank.

this was not a happy time. There were rumblings that Shanny was finally on the hot seat.

Jan 9, 2005

INDIANAPOLIS -- Peyton Manning shredded Denver's defense for 457 yards passing and four touchdowns, leading the Indianapolis Colts to a 49-24 pummeling of the Broncos in an AFC Wild Card matchup at the RCA Dome.

It's all about who is available for the Broncos to get. Mike is a top 10 coach who has the record to prove it. He is not going anywhere, Bowlen would have to have somthing lined up where he knew he could get a Fisher or Gruden before he fired Mike.

I feel if Mike gets the ax we are looking at 12 years of Freaking misery with a revolving door O' coaches al-la CHICAGO BEARS, Dallas Crackheads.

Bowlen went after Mike when he canned Revees but had to wade through WADE (the other Bum) to get him 2 years later. Remember True Mediocrity?

That said if Mike got hit by a truck I send the Washington pick (if still leagal) & a bucket of $$ to Titans for Fisher. His Porn Stache would groove with Plummers.

I would still take Fisher.

It is a shame that Bowlen didn't have anything lined up when he did axe Shanny 3 years later. Now we are on Coach #2 with #3 of the revolving HC door joing in the offseason.

If there is anything I was wrong about I am hoping it is that we get back on our feet sooner than 12 years.

I don't remember being happier back then. There was a brief happy time after that but overall the last 11, for me as a Bronco fan, have been frustrating to put it mildly.
