Default Gase to be Broncos offensive coordinator

http://blogs.denverpost.com/broncos/...dinator/18237/

In a move that maintains continuity for quarterback Peyton Manning, the Broncos have promoted quarterbacks coach Adam Gase to offensive coordinator.

Why do you care if they "save coin" on a coaching hire? It's not your money, and there's no salary cap for coaches.

Anyway, not the sexy pick some wanted, but a good hire for the sake of stability, plus Gase is considered a good, young offensive mind.

I think he realizes that but figures if he saves $ on getting a popular guy that many want, Bowlen can then use some $ to push the salary cap.

Keep those in house and promote within if deserved. How things are going, a good chance Gase will be the next Chiefs head coach.

I disagree with what he said, but you're actually more wrong. For the past several seasons the Broncos have always referred to their "budget" and not the cap. This would certainly fall under that umbrella.

...but as other's have mentioned, I certainly don't believe this was a "cost saving" move for an instant. I like Gase

I think it is a good move, Gase knows Manning and the WRs and he knows the playbook that Manning likes. This also means Gase won't be hired by another team leaving us without our 2 top offensive coaches.

I don't either. What is more likely is that Whiz, and Schumer for that matter, might have rejected the idea of taking a demotion "for free".

They either want to be HC or they want to be on the beach. Can't say that I blame them to be honest. That scenario is certainly a possibility.

I'm fine with Gase but Whisenhunt would have potentially been very inexpensive:

Making the move a little surprising is that Whisenhunt will be working for free, unless the Broncos pay him more to be the offensive coordinator than the Cardinals were going to pay him to coach. (Not even the Cardinals are that cheap.)

Exactly. Wisenhunt would have been the most "cost saving" move as he's a free hire.

Gase being promoted is more about not changing the offense they just barely got going. They want to build on what they have and keep the terminology the same. There will be some tweaks as Gase puts his own stamp on things, but by and large this will look like it did last year but they'll be able to refine rather than re-learn.

The staff really likes him and begged him to stay on after the McDaniels hire. If he likes Denver, then it looks like the right move. I remember what a good receivers coach he was and he helped make Tebow look presentable when he did throw. The fact that he already has a rapport with Manning is only a plus.

The guy is young and from what I've heard fairly balsy. Does that mean we'll still be conservative? That's on Fox but I don't believe there will ever be a coach here who will risk their careers with insubordination. I don't think that is who this team hires. Fox is not a micro-manager though. We'll find out very soon if Gase can call a game or not.

Bingo! For those who think that bringing in an outside OC would magically transform the team into "go for it" mentality on nearly all 4th and short's, they are dreaming.

Technically we're all fairly ballsy... well except this guy

I like it. Young coordinators are too inexperienced to be timid in their play-calling. I want a kid that can think faster and wants to make a name for himself by dropping 40-plus on opponents. Despite the apparently tougher schedule next year, I'm guessing they improve on their 30.1 points a game average.

Whisenhunt getting a HC job elsewhere after next season is a drawback.

We have now lost Allen as DC last year and McCoy as OC this year.

Stability at these two positions is something desired and Gase is not likely to be tabbed next year. Assuming we can retain Del Rio again next year, it gives us a 2 year window of stability in scheme and system to get the job done. Plus it gives us more continuity with Osweiler, a key that may be needed if Manning goes down.

I don't think that's true. I think the Broncos would still have to pay him OC money and the Cardinals would have to cover the remainder of his head coach contract.

Yeah, that's true! McCoy should really send Manning a thank you card for getting a HC job. Also, I think Gase will get a HC job too from being Manning's yes man.
