I was a Spags guy but I'm behind this hire. I hope they bring in Sean McDermott from Philly so we have two, hungry young coaches and a Jim Johnson disciple running the D.

Too young and comes from a line of over rated coaches under Bellicheat.

No.

Ill trust the Board who hired him that they made the right move with the options available, but canning Shanny was not the answer if this move is what comes from that. UGh

Yes. I'd rather have Shanahan, but I wanted McDaniels from the start.

Yep from me. At least he was the only one on the list I wouldn't have been pissed over.

I'm leaning on the side of nope. Offense was not entirely the problem. The only positive is that this guy might be able to turn RZ FG's into TD's.

No, because we basically just hired a more inexperienced Shanahan.

What's the point? The offense wasn't broke and I have no faith that a 32 year old KID has enough connections in the NFL to get the right defensive assistants in here to fix what was broke.

The good news is, he wont be here long. I hope he has great success but the track record of former New England assistants is pretty piss poor.

I'm OK with it since Bowlen didn't just jump at a DC thinking he's the savior but Urban Meyer was the right choice IMO...though maybe he wouldn't have come here. Of the guys on their list, I had him ranked 1st or 2nd behind Spags.

I'm not thrilled. It might turn out well but I'll be uneasy til there are signs that they are going to fix what's really ailing the Broncos: defense.

I thought anyone could do better than Shanny.

If they hired Oprah I would be expecting a SB in 2009.

I am glad we stayed in Bowlens wheelhouse and hired a young assistant that has had SB experience.

If he sucks I get my season tix quicker, if he wins We all win.

I'm definitely confused, here.

Wouldn't say I'm disappointed. These guys have been groomed in winning organizations. Shanahan came from this exact kind of environment. But, I'm a little worried about their clout, defensively. The other kid sounds like a fine secondary coach, but our real problem is in the front seven. Can a couple of young guys, one an offensive mind, fix these massive problems we have?

Who knows, but it's a new day rising and I'm excited.

Yep from me too...he's an innovative offensive mind (that also has some d experience) and learned from one of the best. His hire clearly does not mean defense will be ignored, so no one should b**** about that.

I'll embrace him as the new coach, just like everybody else should. He's young, has a great mind, and should work well with Cutler and the offense for years to come. The defense will get fixed, thats a given, there is no way Denver can repeat this seasons performance again, it can only move up from now...and if he brings in Mcdermott as the DC, i'll embrace him as well. Time for a new reign in Denver!

not who I wanted, but if he can reenergise the franshise and the players, I'll be fine with it. i'm also curious if this guy is smart/balanced enough to pick right right guys for the defensive staff. I still think Denver is better suited to stay in a 4-3 alignment. I admit, the rumors of Capers are what turned me off. I'll reserve judgement until i see who's running the defense, especially the front 7.

1. I want to see whether he'll keep the offensive staff.
2. I want to see whether he'll keep the run game system...I understand he has his own pass offense and that's fine and good....I think actually from an article last year, Bates said they modeled alot of their spread stuff this year from the Patriots, so from that perspective things probably won't be too different.
3. I want to see who is his DC.
4. I want to see how the triangular relationship works between himself, Bates and Cutler and how he addresses it this offseason.
5. I want to see him articulate specific offseason plans for improving the team.

I don't believe swapping a 32 year old kid for a HOF offensive mind results in a net gain for this team, but I will reserve judgment until I get answers to these questions.

A big nugatory for me. I want defense, defense, defense. Bringing in another offensive wunderkind doesn't do it for me. But I'm an optimist. I'll keep a good thought.

You can't really argue with McDaniels results the last two seasons. A record setting offense in 2007 and then in 2008 maintains a solid offense with a QB who had not started since high school. I'd rather have kept Shanahan, but if he bring in a good defensive staff headed by someone like McDermott, I will be happy given the circumstances.

No thats not a given. Yorue either high or stupid. Its the biggest problem with a team and Pat hires an offensive coach...a 32 year old at that. Its a major **** up by Pat and, no, there is no entitlement to fan support.
