Half the players on the team this last season were his signings. It's been three years since Harbaugh left and Luck just finished his second year with Indy. Shaw creates the kind of team we need here. They smash you in the mouth.

Is he a defensive guy or is his background offense?

Elway won't look for a new head coach until after Manning leaves.

My point exactly. No GM has the balls to fire a HC who just went to a SB even if they know its time

Played receiver for the Cardinal under Bill Walsh. Assistant coach at Eagles, Raiders, Ravens. Passing game coach under Harbaugh at UCSD and then OC under Harbaugh at Stanford.

I'd say the Tebow trade indicates the size of Elway's balls.

I think Elway was as shocked as all of us at how badly the Broncos played. However, I seriously doubt he has another HC in mind to replace Fox. But I agree with many people here, the Broncos need a HC who will get the most out of the team, and I'm not 100% sure Fox is that guy. I like Fox, I always have, but that SB just sucked.

The Broncos had a chance make a comeback starting in the 3rd quarter, that is, they should have gone into the locker room, regrouped, got fired up and come out and played their best football of the year. Instead, the friggen special teams gives up another TD.

Again, I'm all for some heads rolling, starting with the coaching staff. The special teams coach is a nice start, IMHO.

Love him or hate him, Foxy's not going anywhere.

Our best hope is to bring in a real fiery bastard at MLB or FS to pump up the nasty.

Unfortunately I don't see that person out there.

He's as good of a name as anyone out there IMO. Plus it would provide some continuity.

yep, I still say this defense needs a "leader" and more attitude. Look at the great defenses in the NFL, starting with Seattle. Carroll is a defensive coach and he and the GM have assembled a nasty defense.

Niners have a nasty defense too. Carolina has a talented young defense and their starting MLB, Keuechly (spelling?) is a beast.

Manning is Manning and the Broncos will score some points, but when the chips are down, it's the defense that keeps you in the game. The Broncos had Romanowski as the MLB on the SB winning teams. I say they need another, nasty ass, mean MLBer who just assume punch you in the mouth as look at you.

I think Elway got along okay with Reeves until the whole Shanahan thing happened, with Mike creating plays under the table for John and then getting fired for it by Reeves. Of course, it seems that Shanahan and Elway also had a falling out at some point when John was trying to get into a FO position.

True. 46% completion percentage isn't going to cut it in the NFL. That was as Elway would say, "unacceptable."

Elway is one loyal mo fo. Yet again this is his team, make no bones about it.

You got to wonder what Elway was thinking on Sunday night. Looking across the field I imagine he thought he'd rather have Carroll coaching his team. It all depends on their relationship though. If it's good, he'll stay.

What's his feeling toward Kubiak?

I would take Deone in this draft. He's SS but better than what we throw out there.
