Harbaugh was a top candidate, but many of the other top candidates aren't even available for interviews as they're still coaching this season. Take time, go through them all with a fine tooth comb, and come out with a good one on the other side.

I didn't want another "experiement" coach. Especially one who has not been coaching in the NFL. I'd much rather find a past NFL coach, or at least an OC or DC who is ready to take the next step up. But even there I'd prefer one with HC experience like Nolan.

Carolina (2-14)
Denver (4-12)
Buffalo (4-12)
Cincinnati (4-12)
Arizona (5-11)
Cleveland (5-11)
San Francisco (6-10)
Tennessee (6-10)
Dallas (6-10)
Washington (6-10)

So, suppose the common wisdon is that Buff wants Gabbart.

Arizona's HC was Rapesburgers OC. I think he'd want Mallet (or Gabbert if Buf takes Mallet)

SF - Locker

Tenn and Wash need qbs.

Mularky definitely doesn't want the job, and I'll be surprised if Fewell does either. But, if Fewell came for a good faith interview, and actually was prepared to say where he thought he could take the defense and what kind of offense he is looking for, I think he might be sold on the job. mcD truly screwed the pooch (donkey), but Dove Valley is still Dove Valley, and I think the FO is finally committed to putting a team together.

Fine by me. So long as Ariz, SF, Tenn or Wash has either Mallet or Gabbart or Cam rated significantly higher than one of the others, Den should get some picks. I'm just guessing. SF actually has a nice set of draft choices. And two nice rookie olinemand. Dareus and A.Davis for Mallet? Make my day.

Who cares? Just because every available coach isnt falling over themselves to get the Denver job doesn't mean we won't be able to land a good coach that can succeed under the current circumstances.

I will start to worry when John finds the guy he wants and puts an offer on the table and it gets turned down.

Harbaugh's move is no surprise. It was obvious from the beginning it was either Stanford, SF, or Mich. The only reason the Broncos were linked is because John Elway went to Stanford - but Harbaugh has no allegiance to John.

If Mularkey feels he's in a position to be picky and doesn't want any part of Denver, then **** him. I personally believe that he legitimately didn't want to overwhelm himself with interviews when his current team is still depending on him in an effort to win a Super Bowl. Interviewing for a HC position is not like interviewing at you local Taco Bell. It takes hours of studying tape and personel and probably consists of drawing up a plan for that team moving forward. I can see how doing that for two teams while developing a gameplan for a playoff game could be overwhelming.

I mean seriously, how would we feel as fans if we were legit contenders to win the Super Bowl and one of our coaches was putting tons of time into finding a new job for next year?

He should just stick with the Smith's at QB this season and give himself a good shot at drafting Luck next year.

Luck still has until the 15th of this month to declare for the draft this year...

Oh please you guys are dense. Could you be more insecure?

With the 49'ers picking at #7, I have to imagine they will start over and take a QB (Gabbert, Newton, Mallet). Would be crazy fun to see them trade up and take Luck if he reversed his decision.

I can see Harbaugh wanting to live in the Bay Area but Mularkey choosing "the mistake by the lake" over Denver is very troublesome.

/facepalm

Not what actually happened, but please continue with your fairy tale.

Re: Harbaugh, I just have this overwhelming sense of relief that we dodged a bullet here. He may well end up a good coach, but there seems to be a lot of prima donna bull**** when it comes to Harbaugh that reminds me of Saban and Petrino. All of the rumors -- he's going here, he's going there, yadda yadda yadda -- just makes me wonder about how much he's relished being the belle of this particular ball.

Saban and Petrino are doing quite well in their current positions.

Yeah. What did they do in the pros again?

You sort of missed the point.

Neither of which are the NFL teams they coached for a year and then quit.

Im not concerned we didnt get Harbaugh as it was always a reach.

My concern is if Elway, a guy with Stanford ties and who was at the Cardinal bowl game couldnt even get a face to face meeting with him.

Thow in Mularkey and the talk of Studesville or the Jags O-Coordinator as serious HC candidates and its worrisome if this is really the best they can do.

If thats the case give me Brian Billick!

That's a lot of money for a coach with no NFL coaching experience, and relatively little college coaching experience.
Exactly...in fairness he did coach two seasons in the Raiders funny farm.

That's a good point. Elway seemed to be not aware of what was going on with Harbaugh - saying in a radio interview on Friday morning "I think Jim is staying in college (Stanford or Michigan) - if he wants to look at the pros we want to talk to him"

I actually like Elway in the Broncos front office but he's going to have some learning curves on the job just like anybody else would. One is to be more aggressive. If John pushed harder he would have either got an interview with Harbaugh or scratched Harbaugh off the Broncos list sooner.

I get the feeling the Broncos are going 180 degrees away from the NE model and that is not a good thing. Elway doesn't need all this twitter updates nor does he need to go on on on in public about who they are targeting

While I didn't like how the Josh McDaniels era transpired, I'm getting a little tired of throwing him under the bus at every media event.

I find it hard to believe that one guy was responsible for everything bad that went on over the last 2 years.

This smells like a Joe Ellis media blitz another reason why I'm not as jazzed about the current FO nor does it look like some of the coaching candidates are bypassing Denver on their way to perennial losers like CLEV and SF


Why not bring in a Decosta or other GM candidates to sit down and talk football. The 3 must think they need Xanders for the short term than bringing in a quality GM with a proven track record. Sounds like ELway may need his hand held

I think the real truth is that Harbaugh had zero interest in the Denver job.

he also had zero interest in a job that was going to pay him 2 million dollars more than he makes. he didnt want to move, if hes happy in his location, why should he leave just for more money?

quit taking everything so personally, not everything is a slight against denver.

I agree. There are only 4-5 NFL HC jobs available so to diss one
when Elway goes on TV and says if Harbuagh wants to coach in the NFL we would like to talk to him. Then to follow that up with a swag as to where Harbaugh will end up either Stanford or Michigan shows me Denver was never a viable option for Harbaugh. We wanted to talk to him he didn't want talk to us. Maybe it came down to salary.

How does my post in any way imply that this was a slight? I think your defensiveness betrays the fact that you're a little more concerned than you're letting on or want to admit. You're right to be patient but you can't ignore that Harbaugh not even giving Denver an interview is, on the surface, a little troubling even if it doesn't really mean anything, particularly when paired with the Mularkey situation.

I don't care what anyone wants to say about it. No way keeping Xanders can have anyone excited. No GM worth a thing would work under Mcdaniels making all the choices unless it was all he could get.

Who has faith Xanders can do this draft? Not me. He has never been the shot caller on a draft before, or he stunk at it, depending if you believe him saying Mcd made all the moves.

We have are most important draft in the history of the Broncos and to run it we have Xanders and Elway. 2 men who have never done it before.

Sorry I just call it like I see it. Just like last yr when I said this team will suck. Took a lot of heat for that also but I guess Broncos fans just want to paint everything rosy when it's obvious things re in turmoil.

Rumor has it the rest of the GMS laughing at Denver...How can that be good?

Is that the rumor? Did all the rest of the GMs get together over the weekend at the club and have a good chuckle about it?

I have a lot of concerns about this FO right now, but we haven't even started interviewing yet. The doomsday barkers around here are out of control, and it's good to see you at the front of the pack as per usual.

Time will tell with Harbaugh. I liked him for HC as much as any of the others. He was interviewed yesterday on the 49ers flagship radio station and came across very well. I think the 49ers will be much better. Certainly from a coaching standpoint.
I was hoping for Eric DeCosta as GM and Harbaugh as HC. Not a fan of Xanders at all.

Elway has made clear that the coaches they want to interview must have NFL experience
