Default combine elements of shanahan, reeves and mcdaniels to make your perfect coach..

as far as specific schemes they use or personality/coaching traits they have. i dont know a lot about reeves, before my time, but some of you geezers do.

Reeves' discipline since his teams didn't seem to commit a lot of penalties, Shanahan's offensive schemes and taking advantage of matchups, and McDaniels understanding of a whole team concept and people focused on doing their jobs.

Dan's ability to get to the Super Bowl, Shanahan's ability to win the Super Bowl, and McD cursing on the sidelines at the Super Bowl.

I would have gone with McDaniel's slightly crossed eyes or chihuaha-like demeanor, but that's a pretty good list.

I liked Reeves Physical teams, he wanted to keep games close. He liked to win one on one matchups and they had decent D's his whole tenure. He always had good kickers and the ST's coverages weren't terrible.

Shanny though had the best Offensive mind. I still haven't seen anything from McDaniels that screams genius but it could be that they are still learning how to execute his system.

Shanny was more of a finesse guy, his D's after the SB run seemed to be geared toward speed. Robinson gave him a D that would bend but didn't break and Shanny had TD during the SB run to shorten games which kept the D fresh and made them better.

McDaniels seems focused on playing physical with intensity and limiting mistakes, although they sure do have a lot of flags, especially in the redzone, for a team that is supposed to minimize mistakes. I think once he gets more of his type of players in it will be easier to judge what I think he excells at but his attention to all 3 phases of the game is nice. He does know football but he needs to channel his emotions better and resist the questionable 4th down play or onside kick too early in games until he has players that can get them done.

McDaniels youth and enthusiasm

Shanahan's offensive game plans

Joel Collier and Mike Nolan as co-defensive coordinators

Honestly this is enough, we don't need Reeves. The one BIG missing ingredient is a good GM/drafter. In my many years as a bronco fan I'd have to say the John Ralston/Carroll Hardy tandem were the best drafters (many impact players in the early 70's - some people say this was all Ralston but Hardy as scouting director had a big impact too)

Ralston setup the base of the 77 team, Red tweaked it with a few starters like Mauer and Bernard Jackson but they had great depth because of Ralstons drafts.
edit: How could I leave out MORTON!

you think if Ralston wasn't "voted" off by the team he could have taken that squad to the Super Bowl?

finishing up the book '77 and just wanted to get a fan's perspective

That was a great book.

I think it would have taken Ralston more time to get there, he seemed to be more calculating and in it for the long haul whereas Red came in and seemed to infuse the team with "hey, we can win now" attitude which I think was missing.

I remember watching Ralston's coach show on the local station and thinking this guy was very dry.

He gave Denver their 1st winning season but I think it would have been 2-3 more years before he got a QB and figured out how to beat the better teams week in and out.

I just wish that Shanahan would have hired Nolan on his own to run a 3-4, then we would be in great shape.

Ya what he said, nice, simple and to the point.

I would like to add Shanahan & Co. did a good job of bringing in quality free-agents in the beginning that helped Broncos win the Superbowls. But , in his later years not so much.
