No different then the last 3 years. Actually the one difference is we have hope that this coach fixes what is broken. Not like the final Shanny years when it was the same, cookie cutter approach. I love Shanny but what we have now, is what we have. Shanny isnt coming back

Slowick was on the team for years with a lot of defensive input, and it was clear why. He was simply a loyal yes man for Mike.

But that being said, I'm pretty disapointed with the job McDaniels has done on offense. Can anyone provide any valueable contribution he's made to the offense?

He pretty much single handedly tore down our running game by deviating from the ZBS even though we have plenty of talent to run that scheme. In the passing game we became a predicteable dink and dunk team.

I understand McDaniels needs time and I'm FULLY prepared to give him another two years but what cannot and should not be excused is when he takes something that works like our running game and does harm.

Ultimately, we're a mediocre team. Anyone who expected McDaniels to change that in one offseason just isn't living in reality.

The true worth of McDaniels will be measure by the type of talent he brings in. He's made major strides in bringing in guys like Nolan, Fields, Davis, Goodman/Hill, Buck but it's somewhat offset by a disapointing draft class where we were loaded with draft picks.

If he's going to make a mark as a coach here it's going to be based on what he does to address the weakenesses of this team through FA and the draft. We already know that the team of Nolan/McD can gameplan and scheme with the best of them given our 6-0 start but what can't be gameplanned for is lack of talent, especially in the trenches and at QB and that's something they'll need to fix in a hurry.

A poor workman always blames his tools.


How long will it take to replace everybody and bring in players who do it the patriot way? I will grant you the defense needs some retooling, but McKiffen was given some pretty decent tools offensively, but wasn't creative enough to figure out how to use them.

ScottXray
01-03-2010, 05:57 PM
Calling for McD to be fired is stupid.

And the defense let a team RUN for over 300 yards
today. Anyone still think Nolan should replace McD? Sorry but
the offense didn't lose this game as much as the defense kept letting KC
keep getting leads and forcing the O to try to catch up all game.

I am disapointed....but no more than the last 3 Shanny teams
we saw. It's going to be sick around here and all Bronco boards until this team makes the playoffs again.

McD will get at least 2 more years. If things aren't turned around by then
it will have been a mistake to hire him at his young age. Hopefully, he learned something this year and does a better job from here on out.

But I think we saw that Sheffler will not be missed and that OTHER players
can be productive like Marshall if given a chance. Maybe we missed him on Offense...maybe not. Gaffney played a great game.

Orton was moving the ball downfield all day ....one horrendous throw for the first pick six, and the second was a good play by the LB. Third was garbage time and not really relevant, since we HAD to throw every time by then. But overall he produced a lot of drives....as usual we didn't cash in enough.

What I don't get is why we didn't see more offense like that the rest of the year?


Oh well, its going to be a LONG offseason.

01-03-2010, 05:59 PM
Where's the confidence in McDaniels come from. Please!

I have confidence in McDaniels from a coaching stand point in that he's brought in some very solid FA talent that's turned this defense around from being the worst in the league to a decent one.

Also, it's pretty clear the guy can game plan well from they way we played in our 6-0 start.

However, his draft picks look poor and I really believe he doesn't know how to put together a solid running game given how easily and early he goes away from it.

Mangini got his Browns team to FIGHT the last four weeks of the season and got WINS over the Raiders and the Chiefs something McD didn't do. I think Mangini could be a good coach he just needs to find a owner that will give him more then a season.

McD won't and shouldn't be fired but this guy really needs to get his act together when it comes to running the football.

Teams like Oakland are running the ball better with inferior talent along the OL based on a system that has worked extremely well in Denver for the last decade. We still have Dennison and Turner and the priority has to be to go back to a more efficient run game starting with the ZBS being the primary scheme.

Unless McD is stupid enough to think that having Orton throw the ball 50+ times a game is a sound offensive strategy.

The guy brought in 60% of the locker room, and the best talent on this team is all from Shanahan - Marshall, Champ, DJ, Doom, Clady, Royal, Graham, etc. The whole argument that doesn't have his players is BS. He had the opportunity in the offseason to reshape this team and he did.

So when McDaniels came in he wanted to be judged by wins. He also said the Broncos were not up to par in red zone scoring and third down percentage. What has he done to improve anything? Nothing. Instead they have regressed in all offensive catagories and had the same collapse we have all seen before. What is he building other than his own little kingdom? I can't even imagine the 40 guys he has marked for his draft board for this year.

I'm not tied to McDaniels. I'm simply a believer in Nolan because he's got the basics right. A sound defensive scheme that does the best with what it has.

I can't say the same about McDaniels though. The passing offense is too conservative unless we're desperate, and the run game has no rhythym or consistency.

That's a far bigger disapointment than the season given how McD was brought in primarily based on his offensive acumen.

The way I see it is that we're still a mediocre 8-8 team, just like last year, but the 6-0 stretch (and the lop-sided wins over NYG and KC at KC) gave a glimmer of hope. We were also competitive against good teams in PIT and PHI.

Basically Shannahan had seemingly grown complacent trying to make up for a terrible defense (run by a borderline crony-ism situation) with an eye-candy offense that was only potent between the 20s.

McD deserves more than 1 season to implement his "system."

He did decent in FA--but we got DRAFT picks for Cutler--not star players--and after one year of misses in the draft coupled with a historic collapse, he can do his on the job training for ANOTHER NFL FRANCHISE.

Well, now the thread is complete. The Caps have been busted out.

Is everyone drinking? Does everyone forget the eggs this team has layed for a decade in the late season? Change takes time. Our mediocre team put together an 8 & 8 season... just like last season, a game behind the season before, a game ahead of the season before that.

Folks need to get a grip. Rome wasnt built in a day. Shanny went 8 & 8 his first season. And he had John Elway.

I hate how McDaniels wasn't flexible enough to play to the offense's strengths. Why keep Turner and Dennison at all, if he was going to dramatically change the running scheme? I understand McDaniels has to install his system and philosophy but getting rid of what has worked in Denver was idiotic, especially from his offensive background. This team has regressed badly after playing such disciplined football at the beginning of the season. At first I thought it was lack of talent. Now after losing to the raiders and chiefs!?... that's all due to ineffective coaching.

I haven't been a McDaniels supporter at all. But, I did hear him say that he has plenty to learn from this year and that there is alot of things he would do differently next year.

The main beef I've had with him is his ego. I liked his responses to questions after the game.

If he can learn from this year (we were 8-8) and build on it next year...when we have a easier schedule and hopefully more talent. Then I think he just might pull through.

But, I really do believe we have to get in the playoffs next year...or he'll be gone.

When you start 6-0 all previous expectations get thrown out of the window.
Now we're talking newer expectations based on our record.
To have fisihed 2-8 in the last 10 games, is unexcusable.

Now, let's say for the sake of argument that we would've started the season 0-4, and then go thru ups and downs and finally gone 8-7 with a strong shot of making the play-offs going into the last game of the season, then you start talking about how successful this season was, and McDaniels gets a passing grade.

Now, let's say for the sake of argument that we would've started the season 0-4, and then go thru ups and downs and finally gone 8-7 with a strong shot of making the play-offs going into the last game of the season, then you start talking about how successful this season was, and McDaniels gets a passing grade.
The worst thing that could've happened to us was to start 6-0, and not finish strong.

Yeah, I guess I could see that. Good point.

Shanahan has been building ever since Elway left. He built 1 playoff win in 10 years, nothing else.

Would`ve been cheaper to keep Shanahan to finish out his contract than to pay for 2 head coaches this season.

Could Shanny have had an 8-8 season ?

Not with Slowick running the D. We would have AVERAGED giving up 250 yds rushing a game.

Probably not. Remember we had an easier schedule last year and a tougher one this year.

Well aside from Gaffney who played lights out.

He didn't play lights out. He played Brandon Carr of the Chiefs. Stokley looked pretty good when he was lined up with Carr too.

Taco, Shanahan is gone. Get over it already. McDaniels deserves a fair shot. I like his thinking. He wants guys on his team that really care about eachother and that are unselfish. I think we are finally going to see some discipline on this team. With Shanahan there was none.

Bull.. McD wants a team that worships him, and doesn't question their role, even if it means they are getting a fraction of the production they used to get. How many other teams in the NFL have this much melodrama? Oh yea.. none. I guess we have a team just full of malcontents and bad mannered players, eh? Whatever...

Losing 8 of 10 is something I can't remember experiencing as a Broncos fan. Whatever the "big picture" is, I'm having a hard time seeing it through all of the losing.

Did Tamba freaking Hali completely own Ryan Clady today, AGAIN, or what?

When KC looks like they did, something is wrong with your team. I don't see how anyone could be happy with McKid right now.

Worst D in the league. Doesn't that count for anything?

It should be noted that I believe the Broncos were one of the only teams (maybe only team) in NFL history to not have a losing record while giving up over 400 points.

The team went 8-8 with one of the worst defenses I've ever seen.

We went 8-8 again this year - going 2-8 to end the season while losing to the Redskins, Raiders, and Chiefs (2 of which which were at home in the final 3 games).

We lost to **** teams and beat 3 of 4 division winners. Inconsistent season from a 1st year head coach? Who'd 'ave thunk it!
