I was thinking the same thing when they showed him on the sideline today. But now Philly would have to give him permission since Nolan is the DC he won't be getting promoted in Denver.

I'm hopeful somehow Bates stays on as the QB coach.

I'm getting over Bates. I'd love for him to stay, but it's not like McDaniels doesn't know what he's doing should Bates (or McDaniels) choose to move on.

That's not entirely my area of concern.

How much time will a rookie headcoach have to devote on one-on-one time with Jay?

He'll probably spend more than he should his first year because he'll be teaching his system and still do things like an O coordinator. Bates is good, but McDaniels system is more QB friendly. Jay is going to love the ability to make calls at the line like he did in College. We need to see who the next QB coach is before we freak out, though.

If cassel can win 11 games with mcdaniels, Cutler should be able to do the same thing,,, maybe? I know it all relies on our defense.

Was I the only one yesterday drooling at the Ravens and Pittsburg defenses. They freakin swarm to the ball like maniacs

You should. Those are the best defenses in the league. It would be unrealistic to expect that next year, though.

I know, but it made me so damn jealous. Both of those offenses are so boring, their only jobs are to manage the game, becuase they're defense is going to keep them in it everytime! Man I wish we had that.

Dude, this is the Orangemane. If Denver doesn't that level by the end of preseason, then number of thread calling for Defense coaches heads will be about 100. I am sure that Popps 100 years of sitting and watching football on TV will be able to tell the coaches why they suck too.

I was thinking the same thing too. I would kill to have that type of a defense. Let me ask you this: What type of an immediate impact could Polamalu make on our defense? I think he'd be incredibly valuable.

He'd make an incredible impact. One thing to consider is that if we had those types of defenses, there's no way we could have our offense long term - it would be impossible to afford that type of talent on both sides of the ball. Pittsburgh and Baltimore decided to spend their resources on defense and then do what they could to field a competent offense. Denver has taken the opposite approach for years and with the young nucleus of this team entirely on the offensive side of the ball, it's likely to continue. Our hope has to be finding a formula like Arizona has used this year or Indy in 2006, having a top offense and getting our defense to middle-of-the-pack status where it can at least create some turnovers. If we can get our running game going to the point where we're scoring TD's instead of FG's, and our defense finishes in the middle of the league in ppg and turnovers - we'll be a very competitive team.

Source: Capers to sign with Packers Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy's new defensive coordinator will be Dom Capers. A source familiar with the search process said Sunday night that McCarthy and Capers had reached an agreement on a new deal that would bring the longtime defensive coordinator and former head coach to Green Bay. Capers made himself known with a 3-4 defense, but he has worked with other defenses as well and probably will employ a hybrid 3/4 - 4/3 defense. This past season, Capers was a special assistant with the New England Patriots, coaching mostly in the secondary. Capers was the fourth of four prominent defensive coaches to interview with McCarthy. He visited Friday night and Saturday with McCarthy and then agreed to a new deal Sunday night. Terms of the agreement are not known. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)

Very True, however we do have a lot of money tied up on defense i.e Champ, Dre, and DJ, and some lame FA's we all agree on. Our problem is that we paid the wrong guys. We spent so much money on Champ's incompetent brother Boss, Niko Koutiv-I-suck, and big D-Rob on the D-Line, and Dre I'm getting to old and am over-paid. These guys ate/eat up a lot of money on the defensive side.

If we had spent our money wisely we could have asily had the "middle -of-the-pack" defense you're talking about, and probably been a threat to the rest of the NFL instead of a nuisance. Even if we had just spent our money on one key guy, like a polamalu, or someone of his caliber, we would've been in the running. We have to draft at least one key guy (you know who) and sign one key FA or nothing will change on the D-side of the ball

This is one thing that I will think will be addition by subtraction. I know Wabbit commented on it sometime during the 2007 season that we had a very large coaching staff and that it's possible some players were getting conflicting coaching or something to that effect. Too many cooks in the kitchen and all that.

I'm hoping that a more simplified coaching staff will allow the players to spend less time thinking and more time playing.

Coming back to those D's, there are three positions that I really am jealous over: NT, MLB and S. Those seem to be the major parts to their Ds. I am uncertain s to how Denver is going to get those parts, but they need them bad. My guess is that FA is going to determine how the Denver draft goes, maybe this year more so than in the past .......
