1) Ron Rivera - top defense in the league. Always a HC candidate
2) Perry Fewell - on the short-list for many teams
3) Bill Cowher - dude. It's Bill Cowher
4) Leslie Frazier - as with #2, another short-lister
5) Jon Gruden - he drinks, and so does Bowlen
6) Jason Garrett - if Jones doesn't promote him, he'll be available
7) Kyle Shanahan - crazy, right?
9) Rob Ryan - I hear he's good
1o) Urban Meyer - wild card
11) Nick Saban - hey, second time is the charm?
12) Chris Petersen - from one Broncos team to another
13) Brian Bilick - they say he wants back in
14) Tony Dungy - speculation is he'd come back after his son graduates
15) Brian Schottenheimer (not Marty) - good pedigree
16) Jim Harbaugh - amazing job at college level with mid-tier talent
17) Mike Mularkey - ATL offensive coordinator. Those guys are good
18) Todd Bowles - short-lister
19) Hue Jackson - short-lister
20) Clarence Shelmon - SD offensive coordinator

The dumped Cam Cameron and Wade Phillips and didn't miss much of a beat... they'd end up with a new DC that would eventually become a HC himself. Say what you like about A.J. "no ring" Smith, he can build a team.

And the coaching job they've done in SD, especially on defense is nothing shy of remarkable. They're pretty dinged up and just hung 30+ on the Colts and turned Manning into Cutler... in his house! They'll lose one more time this year, hopefully not against the Chefs. If the Chefs will be in this division until the end... I hope they end up one game shy of a playoff and wouldn't mind them getting "Philip'd" for a change!

I agree it's weird to see him up there in the candidate conversation, especially given his Oakland tenure.

But he actually has taken the Browns from 31st defense last year to 22nd this year...and their rush defense is probably even better than 22nd.

And the linebackers job he did while with the Patriots was pretty amazing.

With all this GM talk, I'm curious about something.

Would it be possible to get the Goodmans back? I felt like after Sundquist (?) was fired, our scouting did a 180 almost overnight. Love or hate the guys who left, there was serious talent in a number of them.

Who are some other options out there that'd bring stability and a strong front to a young head coach who obviously doesn't want anyone telling him anything bad?

I trust Cecil Lammey and I heard him after the Raider game say that our scouting department is top of the line A+ blue chip right now. The problem is the person/people who make decisions during the draft have to listen to their input.


But you make a point that no one else has made. We HAD our GM when McScandals was hired. The coach just ran him off. Wanted the power.

Six of those names are coordinators who've never been head coaches before. If Bowlen pulls the plug on Josh after two years, I'd be shocked if any of the names on his top 10 list fit that description.

If the Broncos can Josh, there's no way they're hiring another guy without HC'ing experience. I'd expect Nolan to be brought in with two former HCs as his coordinators (like Singletary to run the D and Childress or Billick to run the O).

We HAD our GM when McScandals was hired.

People say this, and I understand why, but I'm not certain that Goodman ever really fully acted as a "GM". He was the head of talent evaluation but I'm not sure he ever had the kind of control in the organization that a GM typically has. For example, not only being highly involved in the draft but also in free agency, contracts, and hiring/firing coaches and staff. Could he have been? Maybe, but I'm not sure Goodman has ever been that person. He certainly wasn't under Shanahan to my knowledge. And I still find it odd that nobody has hired him since. If he's that much of a talent why wouldn't somebody have given him a job?

The only guy on that list that inspires me is Urban Meyer, both because he's already worked with Tebow, and because he's a true offensive genius, not as a tag along OC, but as a HC who has boosted every program he's taken from obscurity or mediocrity to the apex of sucess. He has "it"...which I think is present with great coaches just like it is with great players. Meyer designed much of the Pats offensive system Belicheat and his protegy here have been using. IF he is finding UF no longer as attractive these days I'd sign him in a nano second if I were Bowlen.

If Bowlen's really worried about losing fans, and realizes he can't fire Josh now cause there's nobody on the staff to take over, he should just bring in Romanowski as an Interim Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator.

Kill three birds with one stone: home attendance would certainly rise and he'd fill two positions.

You can't emasculate a head coach by changing the rules of the game he's playing in the middle of it and demoting him. That will merely hasten his demise. I don't like McD having this much power, but Bowlen gave it ot him so he's gotta stick it out another year I'm afraid.

No, because Marty was still HC at the time Wade got the Dallas job.

A lot of people think AJ wanted to get rid of Marty and have Wade take over at HC but Spanos didn't want to fire Marty just yet. (This was after the 14-2 season)

However they already lost Cam Cameron to Miami's HC position a couple of months earlier and when Wade accepted Dallas' HC position, they felt that Marty would struggle without his coordinators and that's when the drama started.

Marty then tried to hire his brother, Kurt to be the DC, which was a ridiculous idea and that was the straw that got him fired. So AJ then went out and got Norv. Ironically, Rivera was one of the candidates they interviewed before Norv got it.

Rivera's going to be a hot HC candidate again after this season.

If the Broncos or anyone else hire him away, I think AJ plans on bringing back Wade Phillips. I'd rather have Rivera for sure but Wade would be a nice fall back plan. His defenses did well here.

Yep wade is sitting around just a waiting:giggle::thumbs:

In a perfect world. I would ultimately like Josh to stay and bring in DeCosta as GM and wade to run the Defense autonomously. If Josh must go than pursue Harbough. Dream on....

1) Ron Rivera - top defense in the league. Always a HC candidate
2) Perry Fewell - on the short-list for many teams
3) Bill Cowher - dude. It's Bill Cowher
4) Leslie Frazier - as with #2, another short-lister
5) Jon Gruden - he drinks, and so does Bowlen
6) Jason Garrett - if Jones doesn't promote him, he'll be available
7) Kyle Shanahan - crazy, right?
9) Rob Ryan - I hear he's good
1o) Urban Meyer - wild card
11) Nick Saban - hey, second time is the charm?
12) Chris Petersen - from one Broncos team to another
13) Brian Bilick - they say he wants back in
14) Tony Dungy - speculation is he'd come back after his son graduates
15) Brian Schottenheimer (not Marty) - good pedigree
16) Jim Harbaugh - amazing job at college level with mid-tier talent
17) Mike Mularkey - ATL offensive coordinator. Those guys are good
18) Todd Bowles - short-lister
19) Hue Jackson - short-lister
20) Clarence Shelmon - SD offensive coordinator
The question is how many of those guys can develop Tebow?

or better yet, how many can develop him better than McDaniels.

To give up on Mcdaniels/Tebow is accepting a decade long setback.

"People who know Jon Gruden say the University of Miami job never really interested him. But if the Cowboys, Broncos or 49ers come calling, Gruden might be more receptive to a return to the NFL."

An interesting "developmental" question for the next HC is: not only who could develop Tebow, Orton and/or other players, but who could come in and develop McDaniels and the other "newbie" assistant coaches?

i still think McD has a lot of value but needs some more development help from some others, like Dungy or Wade Phillips or somebody. Don't know if he'd (McD) accept it or not, but maybe worth a try. McD needs to learn an "other than Bellicheck" NFL approach.

I highly doubt that any experienced GM comes in with the mindset of keeping anyone around. Least of all McDaniels. If we get an actual GM in the offseason, I would expect a total purge.

"Hello Mr. Gruden, this is Pat Bowlen. Do you like scotch? I mean, are you interesting in coaching the Broncos?"
