Adopt-a-Bronco:
VP John Elway
Default Perry Fewell and Gregg Williams to interview for HC

Broncos officials will travel to Atlanta to interview Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey on Friday. In addition, the Broncos are looking to line up interviews with two defensive coordinators, Gregg Williams of the New Orleans Saints and Perry Fewell of the New York Giants, according to John Elway, who will be announced today as the team's vice president of football operations.

But I don't want any of those guys.

It's really starting to look like Cowher and Chucky are done, isn't it?

Fewell knocks out the Rooney rule.

Williams? We'll see. I think there are better defensive HC candidates though.

This is good. We're actually interviewing a good number of people rather than rushing through it so we can hire the guy we've already arbitrarily decided on. That approach didn't work out so well last time.

By the way, Fewell seems like a solid candidate to me...

They were never an option. Gruden makes a ton in TV and is looking for the perfect job. Cowher supposedly has a list of 3 teams and Broncos were not on it.

You don't know for sure what jobs the guys are interviewing for. Sometimes guys do move laterally like Nolan from Denver to Miami. You might interview a guy just to pick his brain with no intention of offering him the head coaching spot.

We are all opinionated and I guess we sort of know football. But lets not go thinking any of these guys get where they are because they stink. Buffalo was a tough place to try and build a team and Mularky didn't get it done. But then he went back and has had some success grooming Ryan. He sort of fits the mold of someone who has learned, paid some dues, had time to reflect, and now maybe could get another shot.

Mcdaniels will be in same boat someday after he takes an OC job for a couple yrs.

Studs takes care of that. I would think it's safe to say Fewell is a serious candidate.

Did the Vikings have to interview a White guy before hiring Frazier? It would only be fair!

Seeing as that's not how the Rooney rule is worded, no. White coaches aren't a minority amongst HCs after all.

I tend to think it's a bit patronizing, but seeing as black players are a large majority while black head coaches have long been a small minority, I don't find myself feeling too bad for the white man.

I like both options more than Mularkey, and Fewell is no doubt a top candidate.

Well Wheres the Mexican coaches at? We have more Mexican players players than ever beofre. Shouldn't every team have to interview a Mexican now too? I know the equal oppurtunity thing is not really equal anything but come on. Where is the common sense in these rules?

My prediction of Perry Fewell is looking like more of a possibility. I still think we might be laying in the weeds for some other coach.

I would imagine being the guy interviewed solely to fulfill the Rooney Rule requirements doesn't feel so hot about the Charade. It would be insulting being interviewed knowing they are doing it just because you have black skin.

So much for the local media's belief this will all be about nostalgia. Not one candidate has come in for an interview who is a "nostalgic" selection.
