Obviously trying to figure out which guy would cause the largest meltdown. Obviously we all know the day the HC is named there WILL be one, just trying to see which will be the greatest.

Studesville. This guy was only given the interim job because he was no threat to maintain the job.

With the meltdown going on currently over the Broncos being a joke, too much tweeting, coaches canceling, etc, etc, do you expect the hiring to be much less of an OM fiasco?

I'm more interested in who our offensive and defensive coordinators are going to be. I really don't care who is hired to manage the coaches. So long as the person is a competent communicator at this level, I'll be ok with it.

The little napoleon days are done and gone. Why are fans here still acting like they're about to hire another dictator? This is nothing but a cult of personality thing at this point. The front office is going to have their say at the coordinator positions too. They're not hiring one person to come in and build everything.

The fact that Koetter isn't running away with this is shocking. The guy barely kept his job last year and produced a middle of the road offense this year. How anyone thinks he's even qualified to be mentioned as a HC candidate, let alone get an actual interview is just baffling.

Studesville is the guy I would eliminate from that list. He just doesn't inspire any confidence in me at all; besides he went 1-3 to end the season. That may not be fair to him, given the talent level and circumstances, but I just didn't see anything out of him that leads me to believe he can inspire a team to play over their heads, which we will need in the next couple of years.

That being said, now that Riveria is spoken for(why weren't we aggressive with him?), I'm warming up to Fox and Koetter. Not that they are the 2nd coming of Lomardi or anything, but I think Fox would bring badly needed stability to this team, and Koetter would bring a smash-mouth offense along with him, and heck, if he can produce a competent offense w/ Garrard, he can certainly do it with Tebow.

Hey he got us the #2 pick in the draft, that's gotta be worth something...

The thing about Rick Dennison... If this poll would have been up years ago, and it had said: "Who do you least want to get the Offensive Line Coach job," Dennison would have been the top vote getter.

Of the choices, I suppose that I want Fox, but if we move in the direction of Dennison, I can live with that. At least it's not another year of Josh McDaniels.

I think because he over-performed. Remember early in the 2009 season, they had practically no offensive linemen.

They weren't even supposed to be good this year. This was a rebuilding year for them and then all of sudden they were leading the division. They have David Garrard at QB and play in the AFC South, so it's not like they have an easy road.

You want If Elway, Xanders, then Dennison is going to lead this team, the club's value will dip under 1 billion by after their 1st season.

Dennison was here with Shanahan... and Kubiak was directly from the Shanny tree therefore Dennison is from the Shanahan tree.

Please look up coaching trees.

Yeah, I mean, McDaniels had at least called plays for a successful offense before. Hate to have that.

??? what meltdown ??? I think people especilly those in the media don't like the tweeting, because there is no story to be told, everything is out front. Coaches cancel or back out for their own personal reasons, they don't want to coach the Broncos.. good.. have a nice life.

The success is going to be with the coacing staff this new coach brings in. Not so much with the head coach himself.

This is actually a very good point. I think Drek had some comments on this as well. Dennison has no breadth or depth of ties or networks that will give him any advanatages in building a strong staff. And I don't know how widely respected he is around the league like someone like Fox would be.

The reason coaching candidates are turning down the job is because they aren't going to have autonomy over their staff hirings. The hiring is going to be done by the front office. The coach will have a say, of course - they'll be part of the committee, but they're not going to have all the power.

If true, which I don't doubt, I can't decide whether or not this is a good thing. I'd lean towards this not being ideal. You can make an argument that a coach should be able to build his own staff, get guys he's comfortable with, can trust, and can work well with. I think at the very least the head coach needs to be heavily involved in the process. You can't force a staff on a head coach and expect it to work.

Kaylore

I assume the coach will have a lot of say in the coordinators he brings and even in the personnel to some degree. I think the draft will afford him a seat in the room but he will not be calling in the selection.

Every position coach could also look at our situation as a great opportunity for personal recognition because they would not be in the shadow of a big name coach and their work will reflect on them more so than a situation where there was a micro managing HC in place.

Hiring a HC that is a manager might have the effect of attracting good position coaches that want to move up the ladder.
