I've warmed up to the guy and I'm sick of a defense made up of Canadian football level talent.

I just hope he does Jay and company right

Ron Rivera.

Played under Buddy Ryan for 85 Bears, maybe the best defense of all time.

Coordinated the Bears' defense in Super Bowl XLI. That defense was a turn over machine, aggressive, and nasty, they just got gassed in the big game.

Linebackers coach under Jim Johnson in Philly. Another aggressive Defense that went to 3 NFC Title games.

Took over Chargers defense in November and made them aggressive and mean. Made Manning look like a hack.

The key word for Rivera is 'aggressive'. Given Denver's passive defensive play, this guy would light a fire under their ass and return the Broncos D to an attacking style.

21 years in the NFL, give the guy a shot.

ETA: Plus, if we can get Rivera, we take our division rival's defensive coordinator in the process!

I was listening to Fox Sports radio last night and they had Brian Billick commenting on the playoffs thus far. It got me wondering why nobody is throwing his name in the speculation ring? After all, he IS a Super Bowl-winning coach...

None of the above. I don't like the idea of hiring someone who doesn't have head coaching experience to try and fill Shanahan's shoes. I think it would be better to bring in someone who has had HC experience, made their mistakes, and know what they'd do differently this time around. Like Shanahan and Belichick were when they took their respective jobs.

As far as hiring a 32 year old for the position, I think that's a recipe for disaster. If we're serious about winning a Superbowl, we shouldn't even be considering a head coach that young.

Spagnulo or however you spell it, he is a Defensive whiz that can draft real defensive potential. The O has players already set we just bring in a great O coordinator and we are set!

I say Spags, because it makes for the cleanest transition. I actually think that Morris would do a great job also. I don't want to see Garrett or Stoops as coach.

I think Morris being a young guy is more of a possitive than a negative. He is vibrant and can relate to the players.

In the end I want the man with the plan I know, than the man with the plan I am unfamiliar with.

Spagnuolo because he has a better chance of fixing the defense than anyone else.

Well if history is any indicator on the OM this poll proves Spags wont be getting the job.

I went with Raheem Morris. The more I have read about him the more I am intrigued. His age is worrisome but so what. He brings a fresh mind to the game and a passion that this team could feed off since they are themselves young. I think it would be very interesting.

I don't want any of these young guys. I don't want to spend the next three years suffering through their OJT period.

Ron Rivera is intriguing for sure, too bad bowlen didn't go after singletary, that would have been ideal for this team imo

Urban Meyer.

1) He's been a HEAD COACH, not just an assistant, so he knows what it is like to deal with being the top guy in an organization and having everyone look to you for leadership. With ANY assistant who has never held the top spot, you can only guess whether he's going to be able to do it. This guy has proven he can.

2) People say college coaches can't win in the NFL, but some do. It's a question of how fast they can learn. Three times he's taken new jobs, each one a step up the ladder that required learning new things, and all three times he's achieved instant and dramatic improvement and overwhelming success. At Ball State, Utah and Florida, he was named either conference or National Coach of the year at each stop, twice within his first year on the job.

3) He's young (44) but not to young, meaning the pace of the work load will not keep him from performance and he's older than the players so his age will not lead anyone to think he can be ignored or disrespected.

4) He's intimately familiar with the SEC programs where the best college talent in the country is waiting for their shot at the pros.

5) He has an outstanding mind for the game and unlike any coach on that list he's the only one who can say he's achieved the pinnacle of success performing in a role where he was the one MOST DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE for that success.

5) He's lived in Colorado and he stayed at CSU longer than he did anywhere else he's been, which tells me he likes it here, something often overlooked when predicting whether a person will be successful in a new job.

6) He's the closest thing out there to a young Mike Shanahan...and despite his deserved reputation as an offensive innovator, he believes defense is they key to winning championships, so he will hire a guy to run that side of the ball who knows what he's doing.

7) He loves speed...that's what I want on both sides of the ball.

We didn't get it done in the redzone with Cutler this year and Bates playcalling and a new fresh perspective for Cutler would do him wonders.

Not to mention McDaniels has also coached on the defensive side of the ball as a secondary coach. I think that makes him a more well rounded coach and more suitable to be a Head Coach than any other candidate. He can bring someone like Crennel/Nolan/Pepper Johnson to shake up the defense. I'd prefer to get Pepper Johnson, since he has DL experience and has coached under Belichick for 14 years. McDaniels and Pepper have Super Bowl pedigree...McDaniels knows how to get it done on both sides of the ball.
