Do you want to see a move?

Very few of these midseason moves pan out, they usually just end up wasting half a season and potentially most of the offseason trying to work out what is going to happen.

Start Tebow. And this is ZERO knock on Orton. The team just needs something different and invested a 1st round pick on probably the most mentally tough QB to play college football. He'll respond to failure by working harder, not sulking. Lets see what he's got and see if he can give this offense a spark for the present and future.

At this point, what could it hurt. The season is a wash. With the effort this team is showing they could have the grounds keeper in charge and things couldn't be much worse.

Fire McDaniels.

Hire Spider as Head Coach.

Replace Xanders with SoCalBronco.

Tank the rest of the year.

Finish with the top pick.

Trade Orton.

Fire Wink.

Hire Brian Dawkins as defensive coordinator.

Give Steve Austin a call and see if he wants to coach Special Teams.

Get rid of all those ex-Miami Dolphin DB turds we brought in.

Move the franchise to Wyoming and change our name to the Outlaws.

Great choices.

No assistant on staff should be promoted to an interim HC spot, if they're going to make a move, someone like Martindale, Pfifer, or Barone should be shown the door, not elevated.

Orton isn't the problem.

So, negotiate a buyout for someone with a network gig and pay 3 coaches for a 2-6 team? What exactly are they trying to salvage at this point?

Develop some old school west coast screen plays for Moreno. He's a great athlete but right now he's looking at two or more defenders in the backfield on every carry. Run some screens and get him some opportunities in space to make something happen.

Also, strongly consider Bey Bey taking over for Gaffney. It isn't his ideal role but Gafffney has been mediocre this year while Bey Bey has been electric with the ball in his hands. He's also by far a better run blocker, which will only help on the screens we should look to run for Moreno.

As for the actual poll questions:

You can't fire McDaniels mid-season and replace him with an assistant. His assistants are half the problem. At the same time you'll never get a guy like Cowher or Gruden to take over half-way through a season. Starting Tebow behind this OL is like driving a Ferrari on dirt roads. So you live with McDaniels and give him another 8 games to show how much rope he gets going into 2011.

Now come 2011 I'd strongly suggest getting Elway into a senior advisor/football personnel type role. Have McDaniels share management duties more than he does now, most notably on how he picks assistants. Overhaul the assistant coaching staff, address the DL decisively in the draft, and see where we are then. I don't think this team is too far away. You don't beat the Titans, hang in so close with the Colts, and nearly beat the Jets like we did in a narrow window if you're a truly **** team. I'm just starting to worry that McDaniels is losing the locker room.

Spend time recognizing patterns of 11 without having to count. Maybe have an inservice on legal offensive formations, pre-snap motion, and blocks. Possibly work on thumping each other in the fleshy patches where their balls used to reside, in hopes of stimulating a partial return of said balls.

Yeah, because Wink has shown what a good job he can do with our defense?

We just gave up 24 points (tied highest points the niner's have scored this season) to one of the worst teams in the league going with their backup QB who couldn't beat Alex freakin' Smith?

Won't get any good replacements right now. No one on staff can coach Broncos and keep Ortons season alive. Best thing is to make Ortons season look good on paper so he isn't ruined going into next yr.

Really until we know who gets fired you can't really speculate on coaches.

I'd love to see Wade come back and coach the defense. Switch to his style 3-4, get doom back, draft front 7 that fits wades defense.

Then get a new oline coach.

Really though i think Mcdaniels could stay, and we could still get it done but the staff would have to change. Also they need a real GM.

But if that stuff a pipe dream then:

You wait until right before playoffs get under way, say a week or so after season, then fire everyone. The GM, the coaching staff etc etc. Then i guess you hire best GM you can get. make a list of the 5 best coaching options and start interviewing and offering jobs to them.

Nailed it.

I would add that I really hope McDaniels learns from his mistakes in meddling with a Mike Nolan defense and not going enough to convince Turner/Dennison stay.

McDaniels is a decent offensive coordinator for the passing game so that's where his influence should stay instead of trying to manage all the aspects of this football team.

I voted for status quo for the season with an asterisk... I think the Wink will likely have to go if things on D keep going the way they are right now for the remainder of the year. And such a change will also likely have to happen on special teams as well if our starting field position doesn't improve. We can't get a break on the returns and they run on us almost at will.

Not having Elvis to start the year and then to lose Ayers once he got going to go along with an aging secondary (and Cox) with their dings and bumps thus far wasn't an easy row to hoe. But the scoreboard shouldn't be lit up like Christmas tree when facing a 3rd string San Fran QB and the Madden-esque display that the retreads at Oakland put on us a week ago.

Gruden would be an intriguing option though...

Start Tebow. Change up the plays and play-calling. The O-line can't block this offense. And Orton is not versatile (meaning, there ain't no changing up what you ask him to do) or mobile (meaning, he ain't gonna make a play when it breaks down).

Let me add that I didn't get to see the game. I was at work. I walked into the break room and the game was on late in the fourth, maybe 01:30 left and we were down 16 to whatever-the-****-ever it was. Orton was scrambling around, trying to make something happen, almost got picked off. WR made a great defensive play on the ball to save the INT. I went outside to smoke. I walked back inside, Orton gets picked off. Game over. I just assumed that we still can't run the ball.

When Orton doesn't secure the ball for the 2nd week in a row. Is that McD's fault?

I don't know Popps when your team is getting 12 men on the field type penalties at mid season procedure calls and motion calls that's on the whole structure. this team does not play together which was something Josh has harped on "Complementary Football"

What ever we know or don't know about this team Popps this is not "Complementary Football" and that was Josh's stated goal.
