Just heard this on NFL Countdown.

Basically there is no way Bowlen is going to fire McDaniels because he owes him 3 mil per year and he's still paying Shanahan through 2011.

If he fires McDaniels now he has to pay three head coaches at once.

Not happening.

Enjoy, fellas. You're stuck with him for another 25 games.

Broncos scheduled to pay Josh McDaniels through 2012, Mike Shanahan through 2011. No way Pat Bowlen pays three HCs in 2011. McDaniels safe.


good, he shouldnt be fired after this year.

No surprise here and glad to be reminded Josh will have his full shot. It would be a shame to pull a knee jerk firing only to have him go on to have a HOF career with another team, probably NE when Bill hangs it up.

Nobody is doing a great job when you turn in a performance like last week.

I am one of Josh's strongest supporters and I say last week is a problem from HC on down to the PS.

Difference between the guys that still support Josh and the guys that want him fired is we think that game was the exception and it will not be seen again. I expect McD to have the ready to play.

If you think it is one game..you are mistaken.
After our bye week last year, we won 4 games out of 17.
Bowlen should fire Mcd at the end of the season if we keep losing the games.
If we show some improvement, then Mcd should be given one more year.

As per the Schefter, Bowlen will not fire Mcd(irrespective of performance) due to monetary reasons.that's bad news.
I want broncos to be successful..Hopefully, we will start winning some games from today as everyone that supports broncos are tired of losing games.

You are entitled to your opinion, it's when you try to shove it down everyone else's throats that you get a reaction.

Believing it is too early to make an accurate decision about Josh McDaniels.

Which would make him all of 10-13 after 23 games. I realize you actually have nothing else to contribute to this board besides this broken record post, but he did take over a 24-24 team.

It's no defense for last week, but he didn't exactly take over a team that was on the cusp of taking it to the next level.

It should also be considered that those teams were lucky to be 24-24. Only the game day coaching Shanahan and his long time offensive assistants kept that team competitive. It was a boat load of garbage with a few good pieces. When you cut 30 guys and they can't even get a job with the Lions or Rams you know your talent level is ****. McDaniels took over a really bad team. We just didn't realize how bad it was at that point in time.

IMO, that's fair. That's how it should be. He needs to have a year where he gets his key personnel back from injury and he isn't starting rookies everywhere. That will provide a true assessment of where we are. Now, if he can't get into the playoffs with Dumervil and Ayers healthy, and the kids at WR and the OL a year older, then a change will have to be made, but he should have 2011 to show what he can do.

I subscribe to this vision too.

Something to support Shanahan's offensive game plan & game day coaching ability is look what he is doing in Washington. He inherited some pretty good players and in particular a good D. Then he steals McNabb. Throw in Shanny's best attributes and he's got this team going places.

Course Mike gets - good players (long term high picks) on a badly coached team..

Josh gets - a few good players but nothing else (picking in the middle of the draft) on a team that was over achieving because of great offensive coaching.

Agreed, completely.

I view the rest of 2010 as his chance to prove just how much rope he gets in 2011. If we're below .500 at the end of the season he needs to make a legit playoff run. Not some weak 8-8 wild card bid where we get ran out in the first round but a legit run. If he can get us at or above .500 I'd be ok with something like that, but he's running out of time. Otherwise I'm expecting something like 10-6 or 11-5, division win, and a realistic hope of making a run in the playoffs.

McDaniels biggest problem at this point is his gameday work and his assistants. He makes great game plans that put this team in a competitive position to win but he never seems to dial up the right offensive play like Shanahan often did in clutch situations. You've got to pin the complete lack of heads up football on the positional coaches that McDaniels has chosen as well.

His system is obviously capable of getting the job done in the NFL. He seems to have chosen some very good talent in the draft. But he isn't making it happen on Sundays. If he should lay another egg in 2011 it wouldn't surprise me at all to see a more experienced HC like Gruden bring in some experienced assistants and have this team making a legit title run within a year or two.

2nd rated offense in the league, top 12 in scoring when only considering offensive output, and top 10 performance considering field position...and they were a young bunch that need to be coached to be more disciplined so they could really exploit the red zone. Yeah, that is a few good players. As to the draft...are you kidding me? Look at all the choices McD had in the first 2 rounds in the draft, and look what we got from them. The guy has been pathetic at the draft, and his record has been inexcusable. 4-14, and the last two losses are a total blowout to a totally incompetent team with an incompetent coach and QB, and to the freaking 49s and their backup QB. The Broncos are bad and getting worse.

+1
I wish we had had a GM such as Parcells to direct McD as a HC. He would have kept the latter's arrogance under control and allowed him to focus on offense, and ensured the hiring of the right position coaches. This team would be contending by now.

He had a better team than he has now - he insisted on removing talent players for "character" players. He got rid of anyone who clashed with him personality-wise. You can't win games without talent. He is finding this out the hard way. We have -very- few impact players, especially on our lines.

Who are all these impact players they lost?

Cutler? Orton is playing at least as well if not better.
Marshall? Lloyd and co. have more than replaced his production.
Scheffler? He had, what, two great games a year and then disappeared for 14. Hardly an impact player there.

Are you suggesting we have BETTER talent than before? If you really believe this, you are delusional. We have better everything.. and yet we are probably one of the bottom 3 teams in the NFL? How is that even possible? If we did NOT lose impact players - players that are playmakers, and make things happen, why do we SUCK so badly? I'd love for you to explain it, other than blaming it on injuries or bad luck. All teams have injuries.

There is also chemistry. A team is a team because many players are the glue that have been together for years. McDaniels, in his quest to COMPLETELY make this team in his image, basically made the Broncos an EXPANSION team. It's as if the Broncos just started in Denver. It's going to take a long time to get cohesive.

I'm pretty sure a flaming bag of dog**** could get better D than this squad so I'm pretty much over whatever faults Nolan might have. Martindale isn't all bad either but only one of the two had 59 points hung on his D in 3 quarters and 21 hung on him in one quarter by the 1 win 9ers with Troy Smith at the helm. Not that Wink may not be a nice guy and sure the personnel we have is prettty dog**** but still, if a head's gotta roll for that it can't be the entire D....although that would help.

I think we pick in the 5-10 range unless meanest DL player of the century is there you trade back a couple, a couple slots and pick up an extra 2-3 round pick.


If this season continues to play out as it has we will have a very week schedule next year (KC style) with a healthy squad and some freashmeat on the DL I fin it hard to imagine we won't be a play off team.

Yep, for all of the suffering we've had as fans... we really did blow two games we SHOULD have won, and you could argue a case for 3. If that was the case, we'd all be talking about the divisional race.

Add a healthy Doom/Ayers/Clady to this team next year alone, and the improvement will be off the charts. More so, add some more talent through the draft and free agency, and we'll be competitive again.

This season may be painful, but there is some talent on this team. We just need to be more effective this next off-season.

Are you suggesting we have BETTER talent than before? If you really believe this, you are delusional. We have better everything.. and yet we are probably one of the bottom 3 teams in the NFL? How is that even possible? If we did NOT lose impact players - players that are playmakers, and make things happen, why do we SUCK so badly? I'd love for you to explain it, other than blaming it on injuries or bad luck. All teams have injuries.

There is also chemistry. A team is a team because many players are the glue that have been together for years. McDaniels, in his quest to COMPLETELY make this team in his image, basically made the Broncos an EXPANSION team. It's as if the Broncos just started in Denver. It's going to take a long time to get cohesive.

You think Knowshon Moreno is talented? Sorry... I can't even spell his name. Wasted first round pick right there.

Didn't think Bowlen was paying Shanny because he got a new gig?

I think he is paying the remainder from Shanahans contract here that he isn't making on his new team. He would have owed Shanny 7 mil a year until his contract was up. I'm not sure what Shanahan is making now but if it is 4 mil a year then Bowlen has to pay the other 3 mil a year to equal the 7 total.

This is how it was explained to me from people on a message board so I could be wrong.

Once again, jhns spouts off about things he knows nothing about. Shanahan makes 7 mil with the Skins, same as he made here. On top of that he is still owed 3.5 mil from the Broncos in 2010 and 2011. Bowlen would have owed him 7 million in each of those two years had he continued to sit out of football, but because he signed with another team, that number halved.

So for the next two years Shanahn receives 7 mil/year from the Skins and an additional 3.5 mil/year from the Broncos.

I think that's exactly what they shouldn't do. One thing this team has been showing for years is that you need big-time impact players on both sides of the ball. Get the best defensive lineman in the draft. Don't trade back and pick in potential Jarvis Moss range. They need one really good player more thantwo pretty good players. They haven't had a real impact DL since Trevor Pryce left town, and there hasn't been a truly stout defense during that entire period.
