Default Since PFT is the end all/be all of sources for some, McD mandated Nolan blitz less..

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...less-blitzing/

As folks in Denver try to figure out why Mike Nolan is no longer the team's defensive coordinator, Ron Borges of the Boston Herald reports that the divorce was caused not by Bill Parcells sniffing around for someone to run Miami's defense, but by Broncos coach Josh McDaniels trying to tell Nolan how to do his job.

Per Borges, McDaniels told Nolan "in no uncertain terms" that the Broncos would be blitzing less frequently in 2010 than they did in 2009.

And so the two men decided to part ways.

A cynic might think that McDaniels simply wanted to hire former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees(of course, they need more of those!), and that Pees possibly was motivated to add to the coaching staff a guy with NFL head-coaching experience, who could be a viable candidate to take over the Broncos on an interim basis if the 2-8 momentum to end McDaniels' first season continues into his second.


Keep leading us to the promise land McD, running off good players and coaches alike.

Borges has been shown to be wrong a LOT on this.

Per Schefter: Hearing Broncos-Mike Nolan breakup had nothing to do with blitzing more or less. Nolan had another option, so did McDaniels. Each moved on.

per Lombardi: Despite what you've read, the blitz package had nothing to do with McD-Nolan divorce. Just two different coaching styles.

What's particularly awesome is that bpc has actually posted in the other thread about this exact same thing!

I'll take Schefter's word, he's pretty much the Chuck Norris of NFL reporting.

The Broncos blitzes brought mixed results this past year. Sometimes we got there, other times we didn't and the times we failed hurt us terribly, with middle of the field was opened up for receivers and the like to make big gains and big time plays. If the coaching philosophies of the two didn't match, it was best to part ways. I'm glad Nolan ended up with the Dolphins, who have Porter and Taylor ready to be aggressive and rush off the edge for him. I also expect the Dolphins to key in on another linebacker with the arrival of Nolan there.

The implications of Nolan's departure could resonate through our draft. I think the selection of McClain was highly indicative of Nolan's desire to have athletic guys on the inside. With him gone, I'm not sure where our defensive focus may lie when it comes to the draft. Hopefully getting bigger players up front at some point in time.

Heck, whether or not the "blitz" talk led to the "divorce" remains to be seen. Probably untrue. Someone here had reported that Nolan was interested in other jobs even upon accepting Denver's offer. Nolan is in a better position to incorporate his philosophy with the Dolphins now than he would have been here another year. JMHO.

Funny, guess who is the only Denver area reporter to retweet PFT unlinke Lombardi and Schefter? That's right, Mrs. Journalism herself, aptly named Man Mattress by PRBronco, Josina Anderson.

BPC and Josina have the same agenda.

I'm beginning to think they have similar anatomy as well.

That's right. My sole focus now is to dig out that little tic McDaniels who has infected my franchise.

I was willing to give him his three years before the whole Nolan incident. Now he just needs to get the **** out.

Ultimately his fate will be decided by FA and the draft, so I'm pretty sure his next wave of Patriot backups and his draft board of 30 players will assist him in offing himself after this next year.

This is the last thing we needed in fairness.

BPC is actually somewhat intelligent, he's the leader that mock, BF7, rasta and the rest of the hysterics have been crying out for.

Forum's gonna get messy this offseason.

My reaction to when Nolan got forced out, the latest in a long line of F' ups over just one short year by McD:

Nope. Josh initially denied Nolan permission to talk to the Dolphins, and that was AFTER Pees became available. Had he really wanted Pees, there would be no reason to block Nolan.

I disagree with you here ... I think the free agent class was excellent.

And the draft class looks bad only when compared to Jim Goodman's three that preceded it. If you compare Josh's '09 draft class around the league, it's probably somewhere right in the middle. Although I suppose seeing that we had 3 of the first 37 picks, we probably should've seen a bit more this year.

Yeah, I want to get Jarvis Moss, Tim Crowder, Ryan Harris and Marcus Thomas EVERY YEAR.

Also, it's not at all surprising that BPC loves PFT...Both 3 letter acronyms that hate the Denver Broncos.

I've come to the point where I believe the worst, most unreasonable and insufferable posters/fans are those revisionist-historians that deny the brilliance of Jim Goodman's drafts. It's just not possible to do so.

Those four draftees you mentioned there? THREE of them are rock-solid, average to above-average NFL contributors. So if that's the best you can do to discredit him, you should probably re-think your evaluation of his work. Let me help you re-think: Of the 21 players Goodman drafted 4, 3 and 2 years ago .... ONLY 2 ARE OUT OF THE LEAGUE! (Eslinger and Torain, and Torain succombed to a physical weakness Goodman/Shanny knew existed but took a chance on anyway).

If they kept records for this stuff, I have little doubt Goodman's three seasons would be among the very best three season runs, at least since the post-merger combined draft.
