Interesting to see The Greek in on that interview. He's been here a long ass time. I wonder how entrenched he is within the organization right now. Props on the Atwater jersey in the meeting room too.

Ellis is in back looking at some papers or something. Bowlen isn't part of the process it would seem.

Ellis is representing HR. Making sure they aren't interviewing based on race, er wait they have to. So he is making sure they don't ask him his age, if he is pregnant, etc.

It is pretty cool to see stuff like that. We all bicker about this guy and that guy, and we really have no idea what they're like, how they communicate, what their philosophy is, etc.

Hearing things from the horses mouth can change your perspective pretty quickly. I think it's a great idea from Elway to get the fans more connected again and hopefully restore a little of the Mile High mystique.

Fewell seems like a nice guy. Obviously they didn't get into X's and O's, but, you can see that the players would probably like the guy.

In regards to the Greek...it would seem...that he's staying part of the Broncos...no matter what coach is hired. Interesting.

A fair point, but again, I am just trying to look at common denominators
I didn't mean to alleviate any responsibility from Tuten

Still, when I hear rumors that players like Harris are coming back too soon and obviously not ready, I don't know what to think
I know that players want to get back out there so they don't lose their jobs, but it is the responsibility of a guy like Greek to make sure they don't come back too soon and do further damage

It just seems strange that guys like Tuten and Greek, who are well respected and travel extensively giving lectures/seminars, seem to be at the helm of a team with such frequent soft tissue injuries

tissue damage has very little to do with stretching/doctors. Tears cannot be predicted nor prevented.

In some cases, sure, but there is a reason that teams stretch before and after practices and games. BECAUSE IT PREVENTS STRAINS (or tears if you will).

You've got to be ****ing kidding me if you don't think that flexibility training prevents soft tissue injuries. It doesn't prevent 100%, but nothing does.

all teams stretch and use various forms of plyometrics. However, just because you stretch, do yoga, etc does not prevent you from injuries.

That is my point. I've incorporate of the above in my practices/pre game schedule and have seen the same injuries either way.

I think we've lost some of our own identity. We need to go back a little before we can go forward.
We need to regroup and lay out the plan like Elway said.
Restore Broncos football and some dignity: run the ball, multi-dimensional passing attack, solid defense and defend our homefield.

A guy like Dennison would bring that lost culture back...

Why would Dennison bring that back? What has he done in his career that screams he is the best guy for the job? Or better yet that he even deserves a shot?

Fact is broncos football is winning and winning at home they could bring in a small monkey an if he did those two things he would be labeled the greatest monkey HC in the world and he brought back broncos football.

To me Broncos Football is what we've grown to see as fans.
Right now, I don't know if we have that anymore.

We've always been a steady franchise. We've always had the best fans, we've always had one of the best homefield advantages in the NFL.
Broncos Football also means a winning franchise...

That's the reason why I like Dennison, independantly if he had success or not.
I've measured his success in how I see him fit and help our team right now, based on his work experience.
The guy has done everything he was asked to do in his time as an assistant for the Broncos, and he did it well.

I think he deserves a shot. Well-rounded defensive and offensive mind...

But heck, that's my choice considering the pool we have to choose from.

I'm sure you could state your case for your HC choice, and I respect that. At the end of the day, it may end up being a choice that would surprise people. We can't always get what we want

We've won a lot of games and our achilles heel has always been the defense.

I don't know after many years of success, how having a WC syle is all of the sudden a bad thing...

Depends on who is chosen to be the OC. It does not have to be the head coach that installs the offense. Most of Dennison's experience in on the D side anyway.

2) your DC absolutely disagrees with you on an issue. how will you resolve it? Your starting WR is arrested for domestic violence, how will you resolve it?

3) who would be your first three draft picks at this point?

I think "Trade him to Miami for two 2nds and coach up an underperforming scout team player to lead the league in recieving yeads" would be about the best answer one could give to that question... and we all know how the rest of that turned out.

1) The interview would go on for eight hours if they actually answered that.

2) These questions are really hard to answer in a vacuum.

3) How on earth would they know that? That takes hours and hours of study and interviews.

I recognize Elway, Greek, and Xanders. Which one is Ellis? Where is Pat?
Greek? Why would he be in there? Bizzare...he's there and Pat's not. Where is Elway btw? Maybe they're waiting on he and Pat.

yeah, i know. but given some of the stupid things that go on in interviews, at least having what's called in the HR world as a "realistic job preview" might get at the candidates basic thinking processes. (lacking in JMcDoobie)

all answers are more or less "depends", so given incomplete information, tell us HOW you would make those decisions.

Dennison has never coached NFL D. Ever.

You are correct I thought for sure his early coaching years were on the defensive side but I looked it up and I am wrong.

Rick Dennison (born June 22, 1958, Kalispell, Montana) is the offensive coordinator for the NFL's Houston Texans. He previously served in the same capacity with the Denver Broncos between 2006 and 2008, after coaching the team's offensive line from 2001 to 2005, special teams from 1997 to 2000 and working as an offensive assistant from 1995 to 1996.

So now do you see that he will, with 100% certainty, bring in Shanny's Offense if hired?

Super awkward and not terribly professional. I hope this isn't a prerequisite of the interview process. I don't like us turning this into a reality television show.

But yes, nicely handled by Fewell.

No I don't believe that is a given. I would hope that he has is own twists and ideas. Even Shanny doesn't run the same system he did several years ago if he did he would fail. It's a dynamic league if you don't change and grow you will be stopped. If I though Dennison were going to just regurgitate Shanny's 1998 system than I would say hire someone else but I don't think that would be the case.

I think Perry Fewell is one of my 3 or 4 favorite candidates. He's not my #1 but I would be OK with him.

I'm sure he'd have some modifications. The Texans don't run the exact same system as Shanny either. But the style is absolutely the same. I think that's what I and others are saying.

Greek is there in case anybody cramps up or tweeks a hammy during the interview.

He'd probably misdiagnose it too.

Greek? Why would he be in there? Bizzare...he's there and Pat's not. Where is Elway btw? Maybe they're waiting on he and Pat.

I heard or read somewhere, it's escaping me now, that it's not uncommon for the Head Trainer to sit in on HCing interviews because he can ask questions about how practices, OTA, etc. would be handled and a few other reasons that I can't remember.

Fewell as HC and Studs as OC seems like it might have some potential to me. They are familiar with each other I believe.

If he is running a system that has been figured out and can't score in the redzone than obviously it would be foolhardy to hire him but I know he is a very smart (reported to be one of the smartest men in football) respected coach that has the perfect temperament (teacher/manager) to coach the current Broncos given where they are at now and what they need to become a good team again as well as reignite fan identification which may be the single most important thing to the franchise right now. To not consider him for fear he will run Shanny's antiquated version of the WCO I think is short sighted and missing the big picture.

What's the big picture? The only reason some fans seem to want him is because they want to return to that type of offense. What other reason is there?

Honestly, the version that Houston runs is more like the one Denver ran in the late 90s and early 00s where they used a fullback. Mikes version toward the end of his time in Denver wasn't as balanced. Houston's (ie the older version) offense this year was quite good and was balanced.

I have outlined my reasons more than a few times here. I think his Broncos background and his temperament has value at this juncture in the franchise. we are a fractured franchise right now. And a guy like Dennison with his unique relationship with the broncos would be very helpful in healing those wounds. Whoever comes in will have to work as one leg of a three legged stool and Denison has the personality to fit that need too. It's not always just about X's & O's. Witness Josh McDaniels for recent proof of that.
