If the Broncos miss the playoffs in 2010, does McDaniels keep his job?

would Bowlen and Broncos fans tolerate 5 straight seasons OUT of the playoffs? or does McD have the job until his contract is up simply because Bowlen doesn't want to start all over again with another new coach? now that Shanny is working for Snyder, it shouldn't be a money issue any more.

Yes, unless we go something absurdly terrible like 3-13, McDaniels will be given at least 3 years to implement his system. Now if we miss the playoffs in 2011 as well, I think he's history.

Bowlen won't fire him after 2 years he'll get at least 3

unless we go 3-13 or even if we go 3-13?

So I guess there will be 4 years since 2011 is unlikely to happen. I would be shocked if we do not make the playoffs this year though.

I think he will give him 3 years to get his guys and system and if it doesn't workout then he'll shytcan him

It probably depends on the circumstances. Bowlen may not tolerate another total meltdown...

i kinda agree with you. even as a McD supporter initially (and still), there is a clear Napoleon complex going on up at Dove Valley with McD. last season was a disaster no matter how anyone spins it. losing 8 of 10 to finish the year is a major meltdown. something like that happening again and i can see McD in real trouble going into the offseason. it would only take the availability of a willing and proven HC for Bowlen to pull the trigger, IMHO.

I would vote to fire him, but I'm not sure Bowlen will feel the same way.

Yep... depends how we miss the playoffs.

Go 9-7 and just miss and we see McKidd another year.

win the first 3 only to lose 10 out of the next 13 and we could be coach hunting next offseason.

Short of 3-13 or worse, he'll get 3 years.

what about this... Broncos start 3-0, then lose 10 of 13 to finish 6-10. then Coach Cowher decides to come out of retirement and expresses interest in Denver being HC and GM. is there any way Bowlen keeps McD?

He'd have to go.

The fanbase would be in a full fledged revolt.

Which might happen anyway with no football looming in 2011.

McBadass

He'll be back, even if we go 3-13.

By the way, I don't think we'll go 3-13. I'd be shocked if we were anywhere below .500, and I think we're closer to 10-6/11-5.

I tend to agree with those who say it depends. Let's be honest. The chefs and faide are not that great. one might argue that the chefs have their act together more so than Denver, but they traded for Cassell. I mean we tried, but at least we failed (thank God). SD is imploding. Making a run at teh playoffs is not that far fetched ... even given what we saw with the defense and interior oline.

Yes.

To take your hypothetical scenario further, what if McD goes 3-13, gets fired, Bowlen hires Cowher, who proceeds to go 8-8 and then 3-13. Does he then get fired and we bring in a new HC?

Only if Nick Saban, or some other incredibly overrated coach by this board is available.

Yes he will keep his job, On the bright side we might finally get ride of those "fans" that have been crying since Shanny got canned.... almost worth going 0-16

truthfully for most fans the team is in the 1st serious rebuild that some fans have ever seen, it just hurts worse, because unlike teams that rebuild and drop to 3-13 records for a couple seasons, we are just remaining middle of the pack and seemingly not improving.

Bowlen understands, this team was in dire need of a complete overhaul and he knows, that doesn't happen in a single season.

You can't expect to win much with 2 avg qb's and weaknesses in key areas that aren't filled yet, This team isn't ready for playoffs yet. Add the possibilty of no Marshall weakens us more.

2012 offseason is earliest I see the possibility of a HC change.


Denver needs some great drafts to get us to next level.

I like what the FO has done in FA.

He'll have a very fair shot at turning things around here in Denver. First of all, we will not go 3-13 or anything of the sort. Second all all, Bowlen is not going to race out to start the interview process all over again.

I really think we are heading in the right direction between the roster overhaul last season and the moves the FO has made this offseason (except for Andra Davis...that's still a shocking move).

I can see us going 10-6 or better next year with teams from the NFCW on our calendar as well as the AFCS....plus we'll be in a better position to beat Oakland and KC twice in 2010.

Oops, disregard my vote. I clicked "no" because in my head the question was "Does McDaniels get fired?" I expect to see improvement this year, but playoffs are never a given, not in this conference. If they take a step back, I'll be disheartened, but he needs at least 3 years. Every coach should get at least 3, anything less is a recipe for fail.

Bowlen is a patient man, he's going to give his coach enough years to get it right. You don't fire HC after 2 years and expect to win. You turn into the raiders that way.

Fan police!!! ALERT....Fan police!!!

I love how you put the word fans in quotes. According to your douche-law, a fan must worship at the altar of McDumbass or that person isn't really a fan. 4321~

I believe McD will get an extension. He's not only continuing to build his team but he is doing it in a manner that appears to be saving Bowlen alot of moneyand cleaning up the locker room.

I don't worry about it right now. I'll concern myself with it at the end of the season.

Doh!

See I've tried very well (and apparently succeeded) in trying to erase those years from my memory. I still think McD gets 3 years regardless.

I assume he'll be back. He completely changed the team, i cant imagine they'll just give up on that new plan

He has to be given 3 years, for better or for worse.
