From what I have read his D's have been average...even with the Ravens. Is he really the one we should be hiring? Has his D's created many turnovers? he runs a read and react D right?

Will someone please sooth my nerves about this choice....Oh Spraggs where are thou? Or any of Jimmy Johnsons's assistants?

They averaged in the top ten every year. I guess we'll have to settle for that average.

even if he gets us into top 15, thats adequate for an additional 4 wins last year...

I'm not sure, but I know for a fact that Zapolo took Nolan's mother out for a very nice seafood dinner, and NEVER called her again.

if he can get us to the 15th ranked defense in the league, cause a few more sacks, and get us more turnovers over the course of a season. i am more than happy.

how sad is it that our defense became so bad that we will all be happy to be average or mediocre in comparison to what we were this year.

More to the point, we need consistency above even performance. I would take consistently 20th over some weeks tenth, some weeks 30th.

[edit] Suit issue
Following his hiring by the 49ers, Nolan asked the NFL for permission to wear a suit and tie on the sidelines as a tribute to his father. The league initially denied Nolan's request because of the contract it has with Reebok for its coaches to wear team-logo attire, a ruling that was changed during Nolan's second season as coach. In the new NFL policy, coaches were allowed to wear a full suit for only two home games per season. The suits were designed, marketed and labeled under the Reebok corporation. Nolan debuted the suit in a game at home against the Seattle Seahawks on November 19, 2006. A day later, Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Jack Del Rio sported another Reebok suit on Monday Night Football. Both coaches won their weekend games

So, he spent 2 years under Collier, 87 and 88... don't quote me on that...

But, I wonder how much rubbed off on him in two years?

I guess Wade Phillips, AS A DC, wouldn't be such a bad influence either...

As expected, the Broncos made it official Tuesday, hiring former San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan as defensive coordinator.

Nolan, who has agreed to terms on a two-year contract, becomes the first assistant coach hired by the Broncos' newly hired head coach, Josh McDaniels.

Nolan had been the 49ers' head coach from 2005 until during this past season when he was fired and replaced by Mike Singletary.

Nolan has been a defensive coordinator with the Ravens, Jets, Redskins and Giants in his NFL coaching career. He got his start in the league as a special teams and linebackers coach with the Broncos from 1987 to 1992.

Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said Monday he was "excited'' about the prospect of Nolan joining the staff. McDaniels is also pursuing long-time coaching veteran Dom Capers to join the staff. Capers, also a former head coach with the Panthers and Texans, just finished his first season on the Patriots staff

Mike Nolan has had bad defenses pretty much every place he went, in fact every time he showed up they went down in total defense the next year. These moves are scaring me, and now that Taylor Mays is not coming out ... well this makes me unhappy. Everyone hope for Curry or Spikes!!!!
