We gotta be the most improved defense in the league.

And that's gotta be on Jack Del Rio

I read somewhere in the offseason that Del Rio hates the politics of head coaching and he has no desire to be a head coach again in the foreseeable future.

Anyone know his contract situation? We're basically getting him for free this year because of Jacksonville's breach of contract... and the Jags are actually paying him more money than we're paying Fox... at least for this year.

There have been some good ones

Joe Collier was great with the Orange Crush

Recently Allen and Nolan were both good

Del Rio is tops IMO with what he has done with the young guys
one season whose to know really. Hopefully he will have years of work to judge him against Collier.

The thing that really indicates the job he is doing is that none of the Defensive players are under performing including the backups. The rankings are helped some since the offense helping with time of possession, field position, and having a lead in the game.

What I find amusing, and a real credit to Foxs coaching is that 4 of the 5 starters on our defensive line are essentially holdovers. Consider that Mike Nolan, Dennis Allen, and Wink all had Justin Bannan (except Allen), Elvis Dumervil, Kevin Vickerson, Jason Hunter, Mitch Unrein (except Nolan), and Robert Ayers. This tells me that coaching has played a huge role in the production of these players. I pointed out in Foxs first year post draft that the reason John didn't address the Defensive line had to do with his coaching philosophy. His record at Carolina, and now the Broncos is littered with underachieving defensive linemen coming together to form formidable fronts. In many of the ways Shanny & Co. have been notoriously successful buildind offensive lines, and solid rushing attacks, so too has Fox & Co. unleashed unrecognized potential in underperforming defensive linemen. To JDRs credit, he has orginized this development, and incorporated a creative element that was almost nonexistent last season. As a play caller alone JDR has improved this unit substantially. As a Coach he has brought experience, and leadership to a young group of linebackers who with a little proding have learned to maximize their potential. Nate Irving, Wesley Woodyard, Danny Tarvathian, Stevie Johnson, and most notably Von Miller are all reaping the rewards of having an experienced creative play caller like Del Rio. Combine the two coaching Philosophies, and you have a major defensive overhaul.

Just my opinion but I think JDR stays. He hasn't been this close to real postseason success for a while and it's really just a window of a few years, plus he's still relatively young to carve out a HC job later.

Well he had quite a long time in Jacksonville to prove himself as a HC. Just because a guy is a brilliant coordinator doesn't make him a great HC. I think that's been shown many times. He could get another shot at it but I think he stays for 2 or 3 years while Manning his here. We win back to back Superbowls, then he can leave

This is probably in another post but I didn't realize that we didn't allow a single 3rd down conversion against Carolina! I don't know if we have ever done that.

I don't. While Nolan is one of the better DCs in the league, I don't think his defenses were ever "stout." He has a decent scheme in mixing up coverages... but his schemes are very gimmicky at times.

You do realize Atlanta is 20th in the league in defense?

I'm interested in seeing how the D does through the last part of the season when it comes down to winning one on one battles. Lucky for Denver the quality of teams isnt' that great.

Im happy at what he has done but to be truthful I kinda expected it. He is a damn good D coach and mixed with Fox should do it. I wasnt expecting at much but defiantly a big step forward.
