Default Schefter: Ellis met with McDaniels Thursday, Frazier & Morris still in running

Denver narrows list of coaching candidates
By Adam Schefter

At this time last week, in this space, it was suggested that New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was the leading candidate for the Broncos head coaching job. The point is still valid, only now itís stronger.

Broncos chief operating officer Joe Ellis spent five and a half hours in Massachusetts on Thursday night, conducting a second interview with McDaniels in which he was said to be just as impressive as he was in his first meeting with a full contingent of Denver officials.

Now there is a growing concern in Foxboro, Mass., that the Patriots are on the verge of losing their offensive coordinator, the man who is in charge of the offense and helped elevate the play of quarterbacks Tom Brady and Matt Cassel.

Though Denver refuses to say anything, it clearly has McDaniels in its list of a select few finalists. The others are thought to be Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and Buccaneers defensive coordinator Raheem Morris.

But Denver has been so busy this week that is is possible, even likely, that it will make its move as early as Monday and introduce the next coach of the Broncos early this week.

The Broncos also have made it clear that, even though their defense is in disrepair, they want to hire the best head coach, even if he doesnít come from the defensive side of the football.

Ah, Spags. We never knew you.

This kinda sucks. I don't really want any of these guys. And if it's McDaniels, prepare yourself for another five years of crappy defenses.

Boy, I really had hoped that Denver could get some of that NFC East toughness in it. Guess we're going to try to win with twinkletoes offense. Of course, we've seen that Spags' defense can stop McDaniel's offense, so tell me again why we aren't hiring Spags?

I was just reading this article. It sounds like McDaniel, which is ok IMO, he has experience on both sides of the ball, and broke some NFL records on the Off side of the ball. He's young but I think a good hire.

Here is some more info on him...

I would take McDaniels over Frazier if he brings in a DC like Dom Capers.

Your logic here is completely flawed. Just because we hire an offensive guy, it doesnt mean he'll ignore the defense. This isnt some role playing computer game. He could hire an experienced defensive coordinator and they could gear the draft and free agent signings towards defense. Brian Billick was an O-coordinator, yet Baltimore always had great D's. We just need a leader and a culture change. Who says McDaniels cant bring that

Exactly. I'm not in favor of the McDaniels hire either (I want Spags) but this "our defense is going to suck if we hire this guy" nonsense is just stupid. Our defense is going to suck no matter what we do if we don't get some players.

I'm with you there. At first I wanted to see Spags, but I've been leaning more towards McDaniels after I read the rumor about Capers. I've been wishing that we would go back to the 3-4 for years and Capers was instrumental in putting Pittsburgh's D together. I think we have just as many needs trying to build a 4-3 as we do a 3-4 at this point. If it is down to McDaniels/ Morris/Frazier, I'm all in for McDaniels. I think Frazier has only done a so so job with the defense in MN & as far as Morris, I'm just not thrilled with someone who really hasn't been a coordinator.

No our defense lacks great coaching. You bring in an offensive minded guy who cant motivate a team as a whole like a HC is suppose to do. SOmething Shanny failed @ doing.

Get ready for the hire and fire games of DC's the next couple years. Defensive minded coaches bring toughness and attitude to a team as a unit. What is the point in hiring an offensive minded coach and shanny is a offensive minded guru?? For all that we should just promote Bates to HC....I mean hes one of the young bright minds in the NFL on the offensive side of the ball.

If McDaniels is the pick we need to get a very serious DC to pair with him...I wonder if McDaniels with Morris is a possibility.

If I remember correctly, Capers was the head coach at Houston. We're talking about Capers as the defensive coordinator here, not the head coach. He's the person mostly responsible for designing Pittsburgh's 3-4 defense.

So just because McDaniels is an offensive guy, now he's weak willed and can't motivate? Are you just making this **** up as you go along? Lets say they brought in Capers to run the D. Experienced, head coach twice, would automatically get respect. Whats your problem with that?

Yes, that's why you bring in a good DC and assistants. Just as one example of why your theory doesn't hold water, how was "offensive minded" Brian Billick's defense in Baltimore? Going the other direction, how is/was "defensive minded" Tony Dungy's offense in Indy?

Probably not since he's the DC in Tampa, but it is a nice thought. But I actually prefer the Jim Johnson/Steve Spagnuolo brand of D over the Tampa 2.

What I've been preaching the past few days. Another example of a great X's and O's coordinator failing as a HC.
