View Full Version : Two blowouts and Mike Nolan is our coach

If we come out the door getting blown out, Orton throwing picks left and right, and our defense getting trounced, I am going on record and saying Mike Nolan will be our new head coach. And much like my fears when Bob Slowik came to town as our secondary coach, Nolan will take over. For Slowik my fear was defensive coordinator, for Nolan it is much bigger. Though I guess we'd be in somewhat better hands.

Let me guess you're not right very much?

Well you are on record, that much is sure.

Think about it though.....Bowlen would not want to add to the chaos again, nor would he feel 2 games is enough for a coach to get his team in order.

New system, new players, new coach...cmon he gets more then 2 games regardless of the score.

Next time you are going to make a thread, just don't do it.

Yeah, I'm sure McDaniels would really get fired after 2 games. This is a rebuilding job, something bozos just don't seem to get. They really believe this team despite no playoffs the last 3 seasons and having won 1 playoff game the last decade was on the verge of greatness. They refuse to wake up to reality.

I'm really looking for some hats flying around on Sunday. If the Broncos can't get excited to take it to Cutler then I will be pretty worried.

So if Mike Nolan's Defense gets blown out then Bowlen will have no choice but to promote him? We fired DC's for years, did it stupidly in my opinion. There is a rumor that one of the points of contention between Shanny/Bowlen was that Shanny didn't want to fire another DC and Bowlen did.

It depends. If people stop spending money on the team, Bowlen will have to evaluate whether he's losing more by keeping him to save money from hiring a new coach. Im sure you realize this but it wouldnt necessarily take 2-14 for this to happen, although it might.

see, what happens with people who are fans of the denver broncos, they support the team. if the team loses, which given the quality of the oline, running backs, receivers and tight ends, and improved assistant coaching makes losing 14 games impossible (try being logical once in awhile), people arent going to quit on the team because of a bad year, only "fans" like you will. thats called bandwagon.

I just can't see, after all the melodrama of this offseason, if we start getting blown out early, how Bowlen could sit and be patient. His once respectable organization is a laughing stock. The only way to fix that is to win. If McD comes out losing, and losing bad, then he begins to look like Al Davis. You know Bowlen couldn't stomach that.

I definitely don't see a year 2 in this, but I'm going to stay optimistic and believe we'll be rid of the Wonder Kid early in the season.

Its not so much that they quit on the team as much as it is that they refuse to support the current iteration. Its doubtful people are going to become Steelers fans because of Pat turned this into one big abortion but they might stop giving him their money.

Ive already stated that my expectation is 10 wins based on the team McDaniels inherited and bringing in a more competent DC. But the discussion wasnt about personal assessments or predictions. It was hypothetical. Do you know what that means?

the "team"? teh team that got either won by a few points or got killed by a lot in most games last year? the team with literally 8+ new starters on defense and a ton of injured, mediocre running backs? he didnt inherit a whole lot besides receivers, tight ends and oline.

Hey lex. Are you saying 10 wins w/o Cutler? Because I agree with 10+ given the team as it was when McD was hired, simply with the addition of a stronger DC. I'm still on the fence about how bad (even "if") the Cutler/Orton switch is going to hurt us. I need to see more of Orton, including the regular season.

NFLBRONCO
08-29-2009, 01:16 PM
Let's be real here everyone I'll fall out of my chair if Bowlen fires McD within 3 yrs. I think he will get 09 10 and 11. Face it folks this team is crap and unless Bowlen really opens his wallet which he won't it will take 3 offseasons to recover at least. Bowlen wants to win and expects Baskin to win but, Bowlen forced Cutler out so he takes blame and should realize this team is alot farther away from anything special like it or not. Unless fans ACTUALLY revolt at stadium not talk big on the net is one way I see Bowlen changing coaches.
Or if Clady or Royal types want out then we need to look into the franchise alot harder.

I can see 2 bad years ahead record wise though but, this team is a mess like it or not. I fully support new regime but, the cupboard is bare folks it will take some time to turn it around. If this regime stays longterm they will have to draft and sign FA's and do real well.

We just had two of the biggest crybabies in the nfl on our team.

And a "franchise" QB. You don't think that's a lot? Oh yeah...and a RB in Hillis that proved he can start in this league.

So let's revisit the team-



Offense entirely in place, just needs coaching and game planning.

QB, RB, WR, TE, O-Line. All checked off.

Defense looks like **** with a few salvageable players.

Champ, DJ...who else?

Sounds like we need a strong DC and start acquiring D talent, right?

it has nothing to do with this offseason ,it has to do with a coach only being able to do so much change in a single offseason. half this team is different than last year, it takes a few years to get NFL quality starters especially on a team that had a historically bad defense and questionable offense.

He inherited a team with a lot of young talent on offense that was only going to get better with experience. The offense was good enough for 8 wins and that was in spite of an epically bad DC. So, Nolan plus more experience for the young guys, should have meant two more wins even with the schedule.

the QB and WR apparently cant handle any amount of adversity or theyd still be with the team. you need more than one good RB in the NFL as im sure you noticed. the team was 16th in points scored and 24th from week 4-17, you dont see that as a problem? the head coach of the team and former offensive coordinator for the greatest offense the nfl has ever seen did, and what do you know he thought cahnges had to be made. given how the players have handled the offseason and showed their personalities, he was right.

that is completely retarded. i am sure that Bowlen is going to want to pay the salaries of all of the coaches that were let go last season, plus McDaniels and everyone else under contract this year, plus all the coaches next year who Nolan will replace to fit his scheme.

i hate mcdouble douchebag as much as the next guy, but there is no way in hell he will be gone untill shanahan gets a job. We could go 0-16 and he will be here. We cant afford to pay shanahan and mcdaniels and a new coach.

Mcd deserves three years. If he can figure out that players make the league he'll be alright.

This isn't a new poster. Remember the asshat Casino Royal. Well he's back.

that's my initial thought as well. i'm surprised he didn't predict McD's firing if we lose the coinflip in the first game.

Meh, if Bowlen hasn't fired him allready, he won't till '11.

We'll see how it goes Sunday.

We really won't any new faces to improve.

It depends. If people stop spending money on the team, Bowlen will have to evaluate whether he's losing more by keeping him to save money from hiring a new coach. Im sure you realize this but it wouldnt necessarily take 2-14 for this to happen, although it might.

So, only spend your money when the organization puts a winning team on the field, and when the team is going through tough times, just turn your back on them. That's your philosophy? Man, I'd hate to be your friend in real life.

Crap dude, it's football. It's not like you're abandoning your best friend. Last time I checked my best friend didn't make me pay to come over to his house to hang out, or charge me money to buy shirts with his name on them. Football is entertainment. We love our teams, but if the owner, who charges us for enjoying our team, starts making mistakes in our eyes then we have every right to protest. These guys want our money not our friendship, quit equating a relationship with a sport team to something personal.

It's kind of like not going to see the new Halloween movie. I may love the series, but I hate Rob Zombie and what he did to the film. So I won't support him with my money.

On a side note--good to see I'm halfway to the point where my creation of a thread will exclude the whiny 100 post rule comment. Oh what you suckers going to cry about then? I'm sure you'll find something.

Two games? You are crazy. Bowlen isn't a Al Davis. At BEST, he'll let us suffer for 2 years under McD, until he is positive it won't work. At worst, if we suffer under mediocrity under McD, it could go for many years before replacement. It would never happen in 2 games, no matter how bad they are.

But there is a chance the McD system works, and we actually get better every week. I'm not counting on this personally (we need players to do this.. we are cutting all the good ones), but anything is possible I guess.

I am obviously not a big McDaniels fan, but he could lose the first 2 games 70-0 and Bowlen would not fire him.

No way Bowlen will be on the hook for both Shanny and McDaniels salaries, as well as a new head coach.

McDaniels will get 2 years to see what he can do....at a minimum.

Nolan is good, but can he play D-Line?

Nolan is a decent DC...but he remains a questionable head coach. C'mon, people on here are bitching about Orton, and yet they clamor for Nolan, the guy who thought Alesx Smith would be a great QB as our next head coach?Hilarious!

What happens if we come out 2-0?

Bowlen names McD "coach for life" ?

Honest to burritos, I don't understand what some people think would be accomplished by firing a guy after 2 games.

If that happens Bowlen really has lost his mind....and would be right up there with Al Davis as idiots go.

The hate around here for McD is totally non-sensical , just like the OP .

If we come out the door getting blown out, Orton throwing picks left and right, and our defense getting trounced, I am going on record and saying Mike Nolan will be our new head coach. And much like my fears when Bob Slowik came to town as our secondary coach, Nolan will take over. For Slowik my fear was defensive coordinator, for Nolan it is much bigger. Though I guess we'd be in somewhat better hands.

Down with the McDouche!

This is one of many reasons why most people just come to the OrangeMane for the Training Camp Coverage. Well they used to untill you guys found a way to get your passes pulled lol...

Im not saying other Bronco forums do not have their fare share of poor threads but over here, you guys just seem to do it alot more...

10 wins is an expectation based on what I said. Its not a prediction. Im not lowering my expectations for the lunacy that has happened this offseason. No fan should.

10 wins and playoff appearances were the expectation the last three years. Why weren't you clamoring for Shanahan to be fired since you're expectations weren't met all that time? Or were your expectations 8-8 seasons?

That's because you didn't really read the post. It wasn't McD hate only, I clearly said Bowlen is becoming Al Davis. And you then go and say "no way, that would be an Al Davis move." Right. That's what I said.

what scares me the most is ......some of these idiots get paid to think .........2 games and out ??? Even Red Miller got more then 2 games .........

You say that like Red Miller was a bad coach...he went 12-2 his first season, followed by consecutive 10-6 seasons...and eneded his tenure with an 8-8. He was 42-25 overall including playoffs, which included two playoff wins over Pittsburgh and Oakland...when they were pretty damn good teams.

They turned over practically the entire roster over the past three years and had a great young nucleus in place... but Ive explained this numerous times before. Perhaps you missed it or didnt understand it.

I must've missed it i guess.

The nucleus that had us middle of the pack in scoring offense, and near the bottom in scoring defense? Is that the one you're talking about? Or is it a different nucleus you are talking about that had us on the verge of a dynasty?
