McDaniels has skills as a specialist assistant, but not a football operation on the whole. He may yet grow into a greater role, but he was an unmitigated catastrophe for this franchise.

This lame question is the best you can do for "if you could change Broncos history...?"

Sheesh.

If I could change any one thing in Broncos history, I'd undo Matt Lepsis' fall into the side of Terrell Davis' knee.

Yes. I don't care if Brian Griese would've been our QB for 10 years as a result, TD deserved a full career.

agreed.

although the 96 playoff loss to Jacksonville would be a hard one to not change.

Shanahan. No hesitation or doubt that he's worlds above the rest of these guys.

In one season John Fox has as many playoff wins as Shannahan did in
(basically) the entire decade following Elways retirement.

I guess I don't see how Shannahan is clearly superior.

i loved having Shanahan here, and am thankful for the success he had...in the 90s, but he wasn't getting the job done anymore. perennial mediocrity and no playoff success was really starting to tarnish his legacy in Denver. A change was needed.

as for who i think should have become the GM for the team currently, i have no real ideas; but I have always been curious as to what an empowered Ted Sundquist could have done. for the HC position, the guy I have always wanted to become the man in Denver is Gary Kubiak.

Waiting for the all encompassing:

Ed Reed, 96 game vs Jags, Elway plays 1 more year, Griese, Steven Jackson, Shanahan, Cutler, Marshall, McDaniels, Tebow thread

Not really. Carolina was being gutted while the Skins at least had a decent 4-3 defense when Shanny was hired. Point being, Shanny is not "worlds above" the current coaching staff.
