I like it. Gase brings some fresh insight to the table. McCoy was already educated in Fox's ultra-conservative offense when they were together in Carolina and he was never allowed to really get involved with McDaniels, so the conservatism when he finally got the reigns wasn't surprising.

Gase started out in the college ranks under Saban, then worked with Mariucci in Detroit (the only time Jon Kitna looked like a serviceable QB was with Gase at QB coach), and then had a nice track record here with us as WR coach. He clearly understands multiple layers of NFL offenses and has a more pass oriented background than McCoy, which is where this team needs to go.

Hopefully he incorporates some west coast elements (RB screens!) and more vertical passing into the offense. The former would help open up the middle of the field for our running game, the later is a valuable home run tool any team with Thomas and Decker should be looking to exploit.

oh i remember, that was when most fans were pissed as heck because they thought McCoy and Gase were both screw ups and should get canned.

Gase has been replaced by Greg Knapp as QB Coach, guy has 10 years out of his last 12 as an offensive co-ordinator with the Texans, Falcons and most recently the Raiders.

really smart hire, allows Gase to be the OC but also have an experienced guy to fall back on for ideas and helping learn the nuances on the role.
plus he's good at developing QB's so it helps with Brock as well as Manning's continued rehab.

Most importantly Manning thinks highly of him and they work well together. I look for some fresh creativity from the duo

That does make sense. Wisenhunt will be looking for another head coaching job next year.

1 game in, but I think we upgraded at offensive coordinator from last year. Thanks, San Diego.

And from what I've seen in the growth from last preseason to this one, Oz is much improved. Additionally, I liked Gase's playcalling on Thursday night (helps when almost everything works).

Indeed. McCoy was crap. All he really proved is that anyone can have success with Peyton Manning and some good receivers.

just like flacco. Rivers just isnt very good without a long tall wideout to go up and catch his duck passes. That weird shotput passing motion isnt so cute nowadays is it?

I couldn't be happier. Losing McCoy was the best thing to happen this offseason.

I don't know much about Gase. Loved the game on Thursday and hope he was an integral to that. But I am thrilled McCoy is gone. Didn't like him as a QB at the U of U, did not like him with the Broncos. He's where he belongs.

I think Manning and Welker on the same page can make a coach look like a genius, he will be a hot commodity at the end of the season

Adam Gase is a good coach. Everything he's been asked to coach has improved.

Guy looks like he'll be the best offensive coordinator since Kubiak was here. Talent at his disposal is rediculous. The offense will need to run the ball better especially when facing nickel fronts the majority of time.
