The position coaching doesnt really matter as much as continuity at qb and scheme IMO.
Well I already addressed scheme and we have gone back and forth on it several times. Unlikely we are going to agree there. As to QB, when did Porter have to deal with these guys on a week to week basis as the starter. Wasnt his rookie year 2001 or was it 2000? During Oakland's 3 year stretch as Division Champion from 2000-2002 wasnt Gannon pretty much the starter the whole time? And he was a fabulous QB during that time. It was only in 2003 when the scrubs were in there. And now he has Collins, who on the whole is probably average, middle of the pack.
With Lelie, most neutral NFL fans/observers would say that both Plummer and Griese are clearly inferior to the Rich Gannon from 2000-2002. And in fact, you have heavily criticized both. So like Porter, Lelie cant be said to have perfect continuity at the QB position and most fans would say that the guy who was with Porter the most of all his QBs was better than either of the Broncos QBs and im sure you would certainly agree with that as well.
