well in fairness to Fox though, Richardson is kinda cheap.

Was as bad (likely worse) in Jax for Del Rio.

“He’s totally and completely out for his bottom line, and the league’s best interest is not in his mind at all.” Echoed a second owner: “He’s been actively trying to sell for a year-and-a-half, and he’s totally checked out. He knows it won’t work in Jacksonville.”


Point is, there's a ton of openings this off-season and if Del Rio wants a job he'll probably get it. I just hope it's not in San Diego or KC. Best we can do is pay JDR a near HC salary to stick around. Fox is only getting $3.25 million a year here. It wouldn't be hard for us to secure JDR on a financial level.

Does Fox get any bonuses for performance? Hes won the division twice along with a playoff victory.

I like JDR and hope he sticks around for a long time.

Why can't we find our own Dick LeBeau?

Dick LeBeau and Monte Kiffin agree with this statement.

Plus JDR had to contend with Manning and the Colts every single year.

Maybe we should let Fox go and hire McCoy as the Broncos head coach.

I knew this when Peyton decided to join Denver, that Moore would be apart of the staff sooner rather than later.

If we are switching Fox with anyone currently I would go with Studesville over the overrated McCoy. The thought of McCoy as our HC makes me want to projectile vomit.

If not Moore I would entertain Wisenhunt as our OC. He and Peyton have a good relationship, and he was very instrumental for Kurt Warner. They had a good offense with Kurt, and I could see him working well with Peyton, DT, and Decker.

Yeah, but people were speculating on Moore coming to Denver a LONG time ago.

I wouldn't mind bringing Norv in at OC.

I think Del Rio stays... he'll be a hot prospect and I'm sure he'll wait it out until he finds a good fit.

McCoy pulled out of Miami for better prosepcts, did he not?

They're also in their 70's. The stress and responsibility of a HC gig isn't exactly something they've been looking for. LeBeau was the HC of the Bengals in 2000 for a few years and Kiffin has never wanted to be one (not every coach WANTS to be a HC). Del Rio is only 49 and has shown a desire to be a HC having already been one.

I just want him to stick around for a few more seasons. Even if he has to go at some point I just want continuity on the D side of the ball.

I'd sell my soul to keep JDR for at least 3 more years.

Sadly, since it doesn't exist it's a terrible currency so we'll have to come up with something better I suppose.

In my humble opinion if he talks about leaving pony up a massive pay raise to keep a quality DC here for at least another two years.

Some continuity with an excellent DC and another good draft could get us to the big dance the next 2-3 years, year after year.

It's worth the dough to keep him here....................

Didnt Del Rio just say that he was glad he doesnt have to worry about scheming to block guys like Freeney and Mathis anymore

I thought he said comments suggesting he was relived not to have to worry about scheming for the offense anymore

I hope we could keep a guy after 1 year
We need JDR to stay

Give him a raise and the title of assistant head coach and the promise to promote him after Fox leaves, but that would be unfair to Fox. Maybe there is a gem coach already coaching LBers or the secondary that is ready to step up. We can hope anyway.

If McCoy leaves I'd love to see Denver bring in Hue Jackson.
