Just a little update on how other HC interviewees are doing around the league:

Raheem Morris - Tampa - 0-5 -already rumors of a coaching change
Steve Spagnuolo - Rams - 0-5 - Have only scored 34 points in 5 games.

Josh McDaniels - Broncos - 5-0, #2 ranked defense, #6 ranked offense

So what do you guys think our record would be with Shanny/Slowik? I'm guessing we're 4-1 with an impending collapse.

Mr. Elway
10-13-2009, 08:53 AM
We'd be 3-2 or 2-3 I think. Cincinatti and the Patriots would have blown massive holes in Slowick's defense.

Although there is some evidence against it, maybe Bowlen has plenty of cash? Either way the man deserves major props for willing to throw away 7 - 21 million $$$ for a chance to be better.

Hard comparison to make. So many changes were made in the offseason, this is not the team that Shanahan would be coaching. So there is no way to make an accurate comparison really.

I do think it's worth noting that Bowlen certainly seems to have chosen a great replacement. I am pretty sure that neither Morris or Spagulolo would be 5-0 right now.

In the early stages I wanted Spags... Then I flopped between Rex Ryan and Spags.

As far as the early results go... I'm glad I wasn't making the decision.

I fell into the party that was calling for a defensive minded coach as well, and honestly knew very little about McDaniels. While I was taken back by the choice at first, I warmed up very quickly when researching him a bit further. Of course I am a kool-aid drinking homer without the proper level of individualist thinking, or dissension from the FO required to be a smart fan.

If people would have listened to what McDaniels was saying and what the players (sans Cutler) were saying about him they would have seen he knew his stuff. I liked the McDaniels hire because you NEVER hire a coach to fix a team for the situation that they are in because their situation changes from season to season. You want someone there for the long term who understands everything and can deal with a team under a variety of circumstances.

Spagnuolo in his defense, inherited an all time epic failure of a team. FO rated the Rams defense from last year one of the worst in HISTORY.

That and the offense is not what it was.

Spags truly has a long term rebuilding project on his hands.

McD really did have a lot of talent to work with at least in some areas. Most of the offense, and a piece here or there on Defense. Spags has a RB, thats it.

McDaniels has added plenty of pieces, but Nolan's scheme has made Shanahan holdovers like DJ, Dumervil, and even Kenny Peterson, better players...

Preparation and teaching as well as getting rid of club med camps.

How so?

He was raised by one of the best high school football coaches of all time and spent every waking free moment since early childhood involved with his father's coaching, up to and including playing QB for him.

He then played QB in college, after which he was a graduate assistant for Nick Saban at Michigan State. From there he went straight to work for the Patriots, where he'd been until he came here.

How long have you done your job? Josh McDaniels has been learning how to be a football coach for nearly his entire life, about three decades worth, and he's done it around three of the most successful people to ever do the job at each respective level (Thom McDaniels - high school, Nick Saban - college, Bill Beilichick - NFL).

Years do not equal experience, just time to potentially gain experience. McDaniels has crammed every last bit of experience with regards to coaching football that he could into his comparatively short time on this planet.

It wasn't only what he said, Team first etc, it was what other players and coaches were saying about him and his accomplishments also it was about his (non Cutler) personal moves. There was plenty early indication that he was a solid young man. Couple that with the fact that Bowlen has made good decisions since he has owned the Broncos and that should have been enough to atleast realize we were on the outside looking in and were not in a position to really know anything so taking a wait and see position would have been the wise choice.

I'm here for my crow. I thought about waiting to see how we play against better teams but thats not the point really. Regardless of how many W's/L's we get this year I love the direction McD is taking the team. I was so sick of the finese soft team. This team plays hard and smart thats nice to see around here for a change.

Just a strong smart team thank you Mr. McD. Nolen who I dont have to eat crow for should be getting his share of props also. 16 total points is a Bronco record for the first 3 games of any season for anyone who loves stats.

I'm on the coach McD bandwagon........better late then never right

Anyone else wanna join me and take their beating this is your chance. Again I'm not ready to start talking playoffs or winning record but after 3 games I simply love the direction McD is taking my Broncos

Ouch my first mistake ever. I guess it was bound to happen someday

Ok day 1 supporters of McD can flame me, shoot me, razz me, flat out assult me and I wont take it personal or fire back (maybe )"

The Browns and Rams both look worse this year than they did with their previous coaches. Tampa isn't doing much better either.

Interestingly the Bills, Chiefs, and Tampa all fired their offensive coordinators just before the regular season started(they had been new hired too during the offseason) and all 3 are still horrid offensively.

The way it looks, Dallas, Skins, Bills, maybe Browns, maybe Tampa, Raiders(as usual), maybe Chargers(depending how far they go), maybe Bears if they don't make the playoffs, and maybe Carolina could be looking for new coaches next year.

My hope is that things level off as the season goes on...

Right now we are on pace for a 16-0 season so people like myself who doubted this team look to be so horrifically wrong it's easy pickings for most.

As the season wears on and the team starts trending towards an eventual 9-7 to 12-4 record the "Shun the disbelievers of happy Unicorn Land" attitude will quite down... maybe.

Experience comes with age...

Look I'm impressed as hell with what this kid is able to do at such a young age.

I'm sure you and most others could head up a $100+ million organization while doing constant pressers, working 100 hours per week, and having people in the press and on the internets publicly doubt every move you made... all at 33 years old.

But for mere mortals like myself... I'm shocked at his ability to do so.


I don't think anyone aside from jhns and the rev have claimed to be able to handle the duties of an NFL head coach. What we are attemting to point out, is that, age doesn't guarantee success.

Yep... I might have doubted the coach, but my math skills remain.

5-0 makes 4-12 very tough. ;D


It could happen, given the current NFL attitude against our team.ROFL!

Nothing "Gaurantees" success... Unfortunately, it takes most people more than 3 decades on this planet to acquire the skill set and maturity to do what he is doing.

Spagnuolo in his defense, inherited an all time epic failure of a team. FO rated the Rams defense from last year one of the worst in HISTORY.

Wasn't ours rated a close second?

Sometimes.

Other times when someone says they have 20 years experience, they often mean 5 years experience repeated four times.

The most important individual in the whole off season was Bowlen.
His experience allowed him to recognize, what might turn out to be, a unique talent.
He went from one of the best owners in sports to WTF?? OMG!!! just because some of the drama queens didn't understand.

The moral is: When in doubt, look at the person we know and admire and see what moves they're making. ;D

Common sense + experience = wisdom.
Stupidity + experience = stubborness.

That and the offense is not what it was.

Spags truly has a long term rebuilding project on his hands.

McD really did have a lot of talent to work with at least in some areas. Most of the offense, and a piece here or there on Defense. Spags has a RB, thats it.

we have 7/8 new starters on defense depending on package, if mcdaniels and nolan managed to find all these guys to play, spags should have ben able to as well...
