Default Good McDaniels interview with Woody Paige

In the Denver Post today - read it at:

http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_11543218

I like this quote:

"we've got a lot of room for improvement on offense, in our kicking game, on defense. There's not one specific area. We need to get better everywhere. I am all about all of them."

I know the defense has been the focus and I'm anxious to see what changes McDaniels will bring there, but to hear him say the offense has "alot of room for improvement" is interesting.

Why is it a shocker Denver easily could use another WR and RB with gamebreaker speed on O. It is just overshadowed by a really bad D. Our O was not as good as it should have been. We had a decent running game for a few weeks. Getting hit like we did at RB was unreal but, considering our running game was not that great Jay had decent time to throw most of the year.

Scoring in the red zone and short yardage could use improvement.

Our entire offense needs to be looked at. Outside the normal 15 sripted plays there were weeks towards the end of the season it looked anemic and disfunctional. I know the 6-7 RB IR guys hurt us but None of those guys were big time playmakers and I thought Jay did a lousy job of keeping his head in the games at times and his pouty indifferent attitude was frustrating to watch. At some point he needs to become a leader and carry this team and I didn't see it this year. Its for these reasons I'm really happy bates is gone and McDaniels will refocus on the offense as well as building up the Defense.

In his each of his four seasons as a tight ends coach in the NFL, one of his players led his team in receptions. Barone's tight ends totaled four Pro Bowl berths and one All-Pro selection.

Barone, 45, mentored Chargers tight end Antonio Gates in his two seasons with the club as his star pupil caught 135 passes for 1,688 yards and tied for an NFL-high among tight ends with 17 touchdown receptions over that span.

Before his stint in San Diego, Barone was the tight ends coach for the Atlanta Falcons from 2005-06 and helped tight end Alge Crumpler earn a trip to the Pro Bowl in both seasons, including his All-Pro selection in 2006. He entered his coaching career in the NFL as the assistant offensive line coach for the Falcons in 2004.

Before his NFL coaching career, Barone spent 17 seasons coaching in the collegiate ranks primarily with the offensive line. During that span, 27 offensive linemen who played for him signed NFL contracts. He coached five Outland Award (awarded to the best collegiate interior lineman) semifinalists and three Rimington Award (awarded to the nation's best collegiate center) semifinalists."

Gee Rev, Guess 1 all pro and 4 trips to the probowl isn't two guys to all pro so it rates the sarcastic post, eh? How about adding something to the thread instead of just being a punk?

is is obvious the offense needs work. we left at least 10 points on the field almost every game. we couldn't run the ball to save our lives, too many dropped passes, bad bubble screens every other play.

we had the 2nd most yards gained as an offense but we were like 16th in points scored. the entire team needs a lot of work.

And how many probowls did Gates and Crumpler have before he showed up to "coach them up"?

why does that surprise you? The offense was 16th or something like that in points scored. That will not get it done.

Very true, but the Shanahan fluffers like to say our offense was 2nd best in the NFL and that the O rebuild was masterful and complete.

It piled up a lot of yards for sure but Cutler and the team can improve in the redzone area.

Shanny being such a guru on offense I never could figure out why we were so weak in the red zone in his era.
