No need for poll for me...I say YES!

And the best part is I have no idea why I feel that way, but I do.

I think he's experienced, has skill at finding players that work in his defense, and he seems to not take any shiit off the players. Denver needs this at this point. I think he will be fine as long as Champ says so....Uugh.

It is to early to tell, but it's fun to see what your gut says now. We don't have to be right, we just need to speculate.

I remember reading that Capers was going to be on staff. Has this changed?

near the bottom.

Says he is likely to join "in the coming days."

As linebacker coach?

Sounds good to me.

The guy wont be worth a shlt unless he gets players. His record and body of work proves that. We dont get players in here expect us to be right back in the 30s in terms of ranking as well as giving up over 400 points next year. He gets players in here he will be fine.

Only time will tell. I liked the Ray Rhodes hire but that didn't work out too well.

Nolan has a lot of experience so at this point seems like a good hire.

Nolan is absolutely the right choice given what we know now. It's easy to say, "Way too early to tell", but we have to hire a coach now. We can't wait 2 years and see how things go before we hire a DC.

Nolan has a history of building solid defenses, and he also has HC experience that will provide a solid sounding board for McDaniels. Above all he's a guy that Josh can trust to take care of the defense while he deals with running the offense and dealing with the responsibilities of being a head coach.

I think Nolan is a great hire.

Only if our offensive linemen can also do that annoying stand up routine before every snap.

All good points. With Capers also coming in that will give McKid some great experience to draw on when times get a little shaky. I was really happy with the decision to go with Josh McDaniels, now even more so considering he's surrounding himself with a lot of experience. SMART MAN!

What's the point of putting Rex Ryan on the poll when there was zero chance Denver was going to get him as a defensive coordinator?

Hard to say but one disconcerting thing is Dan Revees went on and on about what a great coach Nolan is on Sirius Radio tonight.

Nolan was my pick for DC...way before McDaniels came on board, by the way McDaniels was my #1 choice too. It's apparent Bowlen follows my advice.
