If McDaniels goes about his bussiness like billichek, you can probably expect him to make some trades for draft picks/FAs, more likely for picks. Whom do any of you see getting traded. I'm thinking dre bly.

Champ
Boss
Either Doom or Moss, whichever doesn't project to a good LB.

I'd list "anyone possible on defense" but I don't think any of them have trade value.

There is a sense in which a new coach can make the kinds of difficult decisions that might be necessary (trading Champ, for instance) for long-term sustained success in today's NFL. Of course, if any coach ever perfected the art of buy-low/sell-high, they would probably make a better living in Vegas with a lot less stress. Whatever else will be the case, McD will see our players with a different (and perhaps fresh) perspective.

I, for one, am willing to live with almost any decision he makes in the short run, because our franchise is clearly in need of change. It's hard as a Bronco fan to remember that we are privileged, and that consistently being competitive is a luxury many fans know nothing about, but I yearn for another championship, and so I'm willing to see some shake-up for that elusive mountain-top experience. After all...rise or fall, win or lose, my life goes on...

I highly doubt its Doom. He seems to be the only player from the current front 7 that would actually benefit from a move to the 3-4.

You think he will be able to make the transition to stand up and cover?

I don't feel that the hiring of McDaniels will lead to any similarities of NE trading players for picks. Bowlen has said that after Shanahan there would be a separation of GM and coach duties. Goodman may trade players to transition to a 3-4, but his style in terms of FA/Trades has yet to be seen (unless he had input on Niko, Boss... which would suck).

Really? that surprises me. I realize his unique ability to rush the passer, but somehow I think that his lack of height and agility/speed make him even more a liability in pass coverage than someone like Greg Ellis who made the transition in Dallas from 4-3 End to 3-4 OLB. I would thik that a team like Tampa or Washington (yes please-we'd like another) would love to trade for a guy like doom.

I agree. He's a little small, but it's intriguing to think what he might be able to do in the 3-4. He's a solid tackler, has nice run-down speed. I'm not sure how agile he is side-to-side, and I do worry about him getting engulfed, at times.

Where do you see him playing, SoCal?

I wasn't asked, but I can ONLY see him as a weak side OLB.

Why are you guys stuck on this 3-4 idea. No one with the Broncos has said anything about the 3-4.

So what if they've said anything. I think most believe its better than a 50/50 proposition that they'll switch, thus the speculation. Besides, haven't there been revealing quotes from the FO about switching?

Nolan coaches the 3-4, McDaniels coaches the 3-4. Denver experimented with the 3-4 last year so the players that don't get cut will be familar with it.

nolan also admitted we dont have teh players for a 3-4, and he will evaluate the personnel and devise a scheme thats best suited to it.

I just don't see it. Where are we going to get a 3-4 NT? and a 3-4 NT backup? Even if we draft one, we won't have a NT to fill in if the starter (rookie?) goes down?

Maybe if we had a couple big DT's who could move to NT, but we don't even have that.

I'm just not convinced. The personnel aren't there, and there aren't that many FA's moving from their 3-4 teams who are worth a ****.

I would think it would have to be WOLB. That way he needs only to shed the block of the back to get to the QB as a pass rusher. And, as you noted, this would make him a more effective run defender, especially in pursuit.

The only area that concerns me is pass coverage. I would suspect that we would play more zones, though. I'd rather not see Doom in M-M on the HB. They might be able to mask his deficiencies by limiting him to playing flat coverage. It is something to be worried about (pass coverage), but overall, I think it benefits him.

I think it maybe champ because new England never seemed to pay top dollar for corners. Hate to say it but I think it very well may happen!

We're alot closer to a 3-4 than you think, Doom & Moss are both cause of their size tweaners,who get moved to LB in 3-4 defenses. Robertson played NT in a 3-4 prior to comming to us.

well its not like we have the talent to run a good 4-3 defense.
We are going to a 3-4, but it may be something we transition into.

Well, since we don't have any real defensive personnel to speak of, now would be an ideal time to make the switch.
