Default Confusing Issue, If Rumors Are True

From the Josina thread, rumors are running rampant that McD wants to clean house with the rest of the "Shanahan" guys, and that we should cut him slack because he didn't have his guys to run his system.

Here's the confusing part:

If you didn't want any of the pre-existing players that had been impact players, why take the job at all?

I would really take anything said in the lockerroom immediately following a 44-24 loss with a gigantic grain of salt. I would also pause over who is the jerkass running her mouth.

Well then call this premature speculation.

IF it is the case, why take THIS job? Why not a different team with more patience, lower expectations, higher draft picks?

To answer your question, I'll just sum it up in one word...control.

so what you're saying is he cares more about himself than he cares about the denver broncos.

why is this ok for coaches, but not for players? why can coaches hide behind that line?

because his ultimate goal is to win games, and hes been given reign to do that.

Those are the downfield plays, man.
The dink and dunk passes are of the 2-yard variety

So he had no other offers? You're saying we were the premier HC spot, and we hired the guy who no one else interested him? Simply not true. Please try again.

no, his ultimate goal is to have success, like any player. why is it a guy like brandon marshall can bust his ass on the field, put up the numbers and obviously help us win, but it doesn't matter because he's "in it for himself," but a coach doesn't ever have to answer those same calls?

it's a joke. no one associated with any organization gives a **** about the colors unless they've been there for at least ten years. it's all in the fan's heads.

You mean when he ran out onto the field after week five when we beat the Patriots and he celebrated like he just won the super bowl, upstaging his previous head coach in the process?

McD needs YEARS of experience before he's going to scratch that "genius" potential he has in him. Unfortunately, I doubt he reaches that level in Denver.

A couple of scenarios.

1. The attitude problem from some of the players existed under Shanahan, who was more adept at keeping it under wraps. A New HC comes in expecting these "stars" to behave in a professional manner and they did not, and McDaniels exascerbated it with his disciplinary stances.

2. McDaniels has it in his head that he requires certain players for his schemes, and needed a season to see which players left over fit and which ones did not. So regardless of what we did this year, some fan favorites from last season would have been gone anyway.

I'll bet you there are still 7 Shanahan guys starting by opening day next year.

-Doom
-Clady
-Royal
-Kuper
-DJ
-Bailey
-Peterson

That's about a third of the starting roster.


Much more likely, he wants to get rid of a certain type of personality.

Shanahan cleaned house when he came in, too.

It's what most coaches do.

Most teams who switch coaches aren't switching because the roster is so stacked full of awesome talent.



Think about it.

there is no way eddie royal starts next year. I wonder about Champ. Peterson is a McD guy by virtue of sucking his dad's balls.
