Bowlen, in a telephone interview on Monday night, was asked if coach Josh McDaniels will be fired at any point during this season.

"I am not interested in making a change," Bowlen said.

OK, what about the 2011 season? Will McDaniels be back for it?

"Yes he will," Bowlen said. "I am not interested in making a coaching change."http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2010/11/29/josh-mcdaniels-will-return-in-2011-broncos-owner-says/

Good for Bowlen if this is true...If you thought high enough of someone to hire him as an NFL HC...Give him the 3 years.

No play-off wins after 3 years...Can him then.

Read the entire thing there's more juicy stuff towards the bottom.

"I am confident if he doesn't have the right people around him, that he should change coaches,'' Bowlen said. "It is something I have always left up to my coach. But I always reserve the right to make that change. I have done it on an isolated basis. It rarely happens. He picks the coaches. But, absolutely, I have the right to make those changes."

That's cool.....I can go with that. Make some staff changes and give him one more chance with Dumervil and Ayers healthy to see what this team can do at full strength (and the rookie OL and WR with a year under their belts). He's gotta make the postseason in 2011, though, no ifs ands or buts.

Well this is a positive on one major area. McD has been released to play for next season. Since this season is a wash you can see what you have in the youth and see if they will show signs that they are contributors.

I know many people want McD gone but at least he has the freedom to test for next year.

“I’m very happy with Josh,” Bowlen added. “Josh is doing a good job. I wish he had a few more wins, but we’ve got five games to go. I’ve got 27 years in this business. The ball bounces funny and it doesn’t always bounce your way. We’ve had bad breaks, injuries. I’ve been around football long enough to know this happens and it’s a part of the game. We’ve still got a chance to make the playoffs. People have been in a position like ours and it’s been done before.”

Glad to see he has faith in Josh and realizes that sometimes **** happens. This isn't the only NFL team that has had a bad season. Although, I kind of think he was drunk during this interview. I mean really, does he believe Broncos can make the playoffs? I hope not.

Fans are already showing Bowlen that they don't support this bull****, you can't sell tickets on craigslist, and when the notice to renew season tix comes to pay up next March, people will simply wipe their asses with the paper the notice it was written on.

I really hope this is the "dreaded vote of confidence" that precedes a firing. But after 2 years of football hell, I don't trust the braintrust at Dove Valley to do anything resembling a competent football team. And that interview just adds to the embarrassment. Especially the part about making the playoffs.

Sure, he's been in the business for 30yrs...but he's really only had 1-2 seasons close to this one (1990, 1999 and the strike season if you count that one). The fans will ultimately push him to do the right thing. He knows that. That's why he's servinging up the coaching staff that surrounds McDaniels. To keep him, sacrifices will need to be made...starting with Wink the Dink among others.

In all honesty I believe Bowlen, but a couple of blowouts to the Chiefs and Raiders this month could change his mind I believe.

Bowlen..you need to fire him ASAP..otherwise, he will screw the first round pick again.I'm least concerned about the offense. Essentially, this team's offense is equal to the 2008 team's offense. Lot's of stats and far too few points.

The problem with this team is the same problem that existed in 2008...and that's the defense. McDaniels came in and has done absolutely nothing to address the poor defense he inherited. Instead, he blew up an offense that was above average at worse and has failed to address the bigger issue...the piss poor defense.

The report card at this juncture - after nearly 2yrs - has to be a D at best. If he escapes being fired and is given a 3rd year, then he had better address the defense!

Let's get a few things straight about the Denver Broncos from the only person who has the answers to bubbling Broncos questions: the team's owner, Pat Bowlen.

Bowlen, in a telephone interview on Monday night, was asked if coach Josh McDaniels will be fired at any point during this season.

"I am not interested in making a change," Bowlen said.

OK, what about the 2011 season? Will McDaniels be back for it?

"Yes he will," Bowlen said. "I am not interested in making a coaching change."

http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2010/11/29/josh-mcdaniels-will-return-in-2011-broncos-owner-says/

That's all she wrote this year. The writing on the wall was on Friday. They had a out to get rid of McDaniels without a huge hit. They chose not to take it.

The pluses? Time to develop Tebow. Time to develop a defense. Josh will have a hell of a time bringing in a new DC, so wink probably gets another year. But they will almost certainly have a top 5 draft pick to get a stud D player. They have a well executing system that will produce 3000 yard quarterbacks the way Shanny's system used to provide rushers.

It is what it is. move on. Anyone who thinks that Bowlen will re-examine this decision has never studied the man.

Captain 'Dre
11-29-2010, 09:07 PM
not that i dont believe him, but he works in the NFL. nothing anyone says, ever, is true. atleast until its proved.

Half the problem is that media types ask really stupid questions that don't even DESERVE a serious answer.

"So, do you agree with the coach's call on 3rd and long, the one that went horribly awry?"

"No, it was an awful call. Now excuse me, the coach is going to have me running laps all night long for saying that."

Wink is gone. If you can't figure that out by reading between the lines...you're blind. What Bowlen is essentially saying...is that Josh will stay...but, others will go. Well, what side of the football is the main reasont that we are losing football games?

Eh...the defense maybe?

Wink the dink is gone!

I still don't think McD puts Tebow on the field for whatever his reasons are.

Tebow might be the only reason Mcd won't be fired..
Mcd is very smart(outside of football)..That's the reason he drafted a QB that is not ready in First round.

He is Evil and i hate him.

I don't think so either.

I think he rides Orton til the end, which might not be all that bad because if we want to trade him stock will still be relatively high.

I do want to see Tesus on the field for an extended period of time, though.

Never studied the man... He stepped in and said Jay Cutler would not be traded, less than two weeks later he was open about it being his decision to trade him. Once upon a time he said that Mike Shanahan would be the Denver Broncos coach for as long as he wanted to be giving him a "coach for life" title. That didn't last either.

Personally, I am glad McD is sticking around... But if he is the one calling all of the shots this off-season there is going to be more drama and frustration. We need a GM in the worst way. Elway has upside and it buys Pat and Josh time with the fans.

Elway has been hanging around the Broncos complex more this year (giving a speech to the team before the KC game I think). And John does get along with Josh. How about dump Xanders and make John the GM?

Honestly I can live with Josh if the Broncos just had somebody else handling player personnel. I was reminded today in an interview I heard with Jeff Legwold (Denver Post) that at Josh's first press conference McDaniels said "The Goodmans will have the final say on player personnel"

No quarterback taken in the draft is "ready". Seriously man, you should go for a long walk into the wilderness, find a nice flat stone, then find a more spherical one. Then, drop your pants and give yourself repeated whacks to the junk to ensure you do not pollute the human gene pool. Pull up your pants, and head back home and think about what a favor you did for the rest of us.

The bolded sentence kills me. Capitalizing Evil is you implying that McDaniels IS the personification of evil. Then you continue and leave the I lowercase...when you are specifically mentioning a person. How the hell did you get out of school?

Get ready for it. If the drunk son of a b**** is serious about keeping this joke around continuing to support HIS Denver Broncos being the absolute laughinstock of the league, then blackouts are coming to Mile High. I guaruntee it.

Fans are already showing Bowlen that they don't support this bull****, you can't sell tickets on craigslist, and when the notice to renew season tix comes to pay up next March, people will simply wipe their asses with the paper the notice it was written on.

I really hope this is the "dreaded vote of confidence" that precedes a firing. But after 2 years of football hell, I don't trust the braintrust at Dove Valley to do anything resembling a competent football team. And that interview just adds to the embarrassment. Especially the part about making the playoffs.



Good, then maybe some of you "talkers" will either have to pony up, or not watch the team you love to hate.

I don't get the negativety here towards Pat Bowlen.

He's not interested in running every aspect of his football team. He just wants to find the best Coach/FO to do that.

I think Pat has handled this situation as best he could. He's giving Josh a real chance to show something while also putting assistants and to a certain extent players on notice.

That's the negativity. Not everyone believes that Bowlen's actions are aimed at getting the best Coach/FO. Those who view him negatively think his motivations are about other things such as money.

Im very happy with Josh, Bowlen added. Josh is doing a good job. I wish he had a few more wins, but weve got five games to go. Ive got 27 years in this business. The ball bounces funny and it doesnt always bounce your way. Weve had bad breaks, injuries. Ive been around football long enough to know this happens and its a part of the game. Weve still got a chance to make the playoffs. People have been in a position like ours and its been done before.

Ironic that it was the Broncos ****ting the bed a few years ago that made this type of thing possible. That said, I'm sure the Chargers had more wins than 3, I'm not going to look it up.

Are we eliminated from the playoffs? If no then we do have a chance right? Perhaps a slim one, maybe even a poor one, but a chance nonetheless. If we win out where does that leave us? couldn't we make it as an 8-8 division winner? Wierder things have happened...hell San diego did it a few seasons ago right? Won their last 4-5 games to make it when Broncos collapsed down the stretch.

I wonder what would happen on here if the broncos snuck into the playoffs as the AFCW division champs at 8-8?

Who would have figured a 10-6 Bengals team with better offensive weapons would be spiralling downward at 2-9?

The ball does bounce funny, and there have been several teams that made the playoffs after a very poor start....it IS possible, regardless of how unlikely it seems to alot of you.

All this team has to do is get hot over the next five games, once you're in the playoffs anything can happen.

LOL, have you watched any games this year? If the playcalling doesn't improve it will take an act of god to win any more games this year. It's not the ball bouncing funny, it's McD running reverse throwbacks multiple times a game that lose mega yardage.

I don't know if I'm that optimistic. That Raider ass-whooping in our own house set my teeth on edge against the guy. Fundamentally, I believe if you hire a new coach he should get three years to get the motor running, but all the **** going on right now is making that a very hard precept to hang onto.

Let's get a few things straight about the Denver Broncos from the only person who has the answers to bubbling Broncos questions: the team's owner, Pat Bowlen.

Bowlen, in a telephone interview on Monday night, was asked if coach Josh McDaniels will be fired at any point during this season.

"I am not interested in making a change," Bowlen said.

OK, what about the 2011 season? Will McDaniels be back for it?

"Yes he will," Bowlen said. "I am not interested in making a coaching change."

http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2010/11/29/josh-mcdaniels-will-return-in-2011-broncos-owner-says/

That's all she wrote this year. The writing on the wall was on Friday. They had a out to get rid of McDaniels without a huge hit. They chose not to take it.

The pluses? Time to develop Tebow. Time to develop a defense. Josh will have a hell of a time bringing in a new DC, so wink probably gets another year. But they will almost certainly have a top 5 draft pick to get a stud D player. They have a well executing system that will produce 3000 yard quarterbacks the way Shanny's system used to provide rushers.

It is what it is. move on. Anyone who thinks that Bowlen will re-examine this decision has never studied the man.


That's what I like a decisive owner.

I am excited about Tebow but I do have an overriding concern about the competency of Pat Bowlen. I don't post all that much anymore and that's the best I can do right now (just keep my feelings to myself). I am not feeling very positive about the future of the Broncos under Pat Bowlen but I hope I am wrong and he makes good hires and gives them the support they need to succeed.

I do hope you are right jetmeck, I would love to be wrong about this but there is much evidence to the contrary. The easy thing is to blame it all on McDaniels because all you need do is fire him and the problem is solved. If it is that easy I will be a very happy Bronco fan and will gladly eat my substantial plate of crow.
