Another Klis gem. Yeah, I'm pretty sure there's a scenario where teams would want to hire a coach that's going to make them soft.

I'm at the point of hoping for Fewell or Studs. Everybody else on that list fills me with the mehs.

What about Studs is even remotely appealing?

Gotta go with the guy that interviews the best that can provide realistic views on how he would coach the team...

I've mentioned it in other posts. The guy just feels right. It's a personal thing. It's not the most rational of things. I just have a feeling. I tend to trust those feelings.

No kidding. If we went out and interviewed some other team's RB coach, people would grab pitchforks.

7 said at his introduction, last wednesday, that he wanted to see the Broncos get back to running the ball.

geez, all I can think looking at that list is" damn,these next few yrs are going to be long". not impressed by anyone on that list. I suppose it woudn't be so bad if it didn't look like we were scraping the bottom of the barrel to get a coach.

That would buy Tebow time to be more of a pocket passer by not having to put it all on his shoulders.
A strong running game and a solid defense, is the shortest way to get back to where we need to be...

We are interviewing many of the guys that most believe to be the top HC candidates in the league this year. Not sure how we're scraping the bottom of the barrel. A lot of them don't excite me either, but many successful HCs were not the most exciting hires initially. It's what they do once they have the job that matters.

A strong running game combined with Tebow's playmaking potential and mobility would be a nightmare for opposing teams. Can you imagine the Jets with a half-developed Tebow? Wow...

Wow...Yeah, I think if you put a solid defense that plays aggressive and a strong running game around Tebow, that Tebow will be the ultimate weapon.
He'll have easier times making plays...

I've got the feeling we could end up being strong there.
That would be a tremendous boost to the new HC.

There are some good candidates to fill those roles...

I thought they were going to try to get Harbough but they couldn't even get an interview.

I have to tell you, there isnt much to get excited about on that list. Fox is the cream of the crop and then theres Dennison...who I was never in love with as a coordinator. Why arent they at least talking up the possibility of a bigger name coach?

How about a more talented Broncos?

"We're definitely entertaining getting that defensive side fixed," said John Elway, the Broncos' football operations boss.



Cripes what's there to entertain? ???

Where the **** is Ron Rivera on this list?

Here is our answer:

In Denver, they're starting at Ground Zero, with Pat Bowlen handing John Elway football authority. "I definitely want someone with head-coaching experience,'' Denver vice president of football operations Elway told me Friday night. "Either in college or pro football. I want a great competitor. I want someone who is smart, very smart. And I want someone who can work well within a good football system. With Josh [McDaniels], we went out on a limb [in terms of giving the coach lots of powers] and not only did it not work, it turned out to be sort of a disaster.''

No Bill Cowher or Jon Gruden czar type as coach, then.

"No,'' Elway said. "Mr. Bowlen's been down that road already.''

Brian Xanders remains the GM, and Elway will have the final say on football matters.

Here is our answer:

So that leaves out Dennison (YES!), and Fewell gets it because he's been an interim head coach? I'm so confused.

Good point on Dennison. Why bother even interviewing him if you "definitely" want a coach with previous head coaching experience?

I think Schiano is one of those rare guys who is content being a big fish in a small pond. He had a chance at the Miami job a few seasons ago, but elected to not even interview. I don't think his name has been brought up for any jobs since then, even with the Miami position opening back up a month ago.

I never liked Dennison - seemed like he moved around to different spots and didn't impact any of them. He wasn't the guy that build Denver's SB O-line....it was Gibbs.

So Dennison becomes OC for Houston last year....and they don't make the playoffs again. The only thing that keeps him in the loop is being associated with Kubiak and Shanahan.

OTOH, Rivera is my choice. C'mon Elway, quit pandering to to the former bronco coaches that were NOT successful, and pick a DC that is. Denver needs defense more than anything. If Elway went with Rivera he could handpick his OC and let Rivera handle the whole defense side.

I agree but it sounds like Rivera is going to be off the market going to Carolina!
