**** the ZBS. This looks like a case of the Broncos going with what they know.

The perception that we're unable to come up with fresh ideas is what's scaring away some of the better candidates.

Well...he fits the bill of someone who knows what it means to be a Bronco and "connect" with the fans.

He went to High School in Colorado, and played Linebacker for us for NINE YEARS.

That's before he was an assistant here for THIRTEEN YEARS.

Dude's been a Bronco almost his entire professional football life.


Would mean us going back to Broncos football though.

West Coast Offense and ZBS.

If we can't get him, maybe Steve Watson is available.

I never got the fascination with Dennison. I thought he absolutely SUCKED as special teams coach, rode Gibbs coattails with the OL and then schmoozed down to Houston with Kubiak and became OC of an already talented offense which was basically Kube's offense. This would be as bad as Fossil - almost.

I'm basing this off of 1) what's apparent to me (yes, it's my opinion) and 2) lombardi's piece 2 weeks ago. I'll find a link if you want.

I wouldn't want to see us go back to the zone blocking system. We need to push people off the line, in order for Tebow to do his thing...

I agree completely, except I think he would be worse than Fassel. Fassel would at least be a positive in Tebow's development. I don't see Dennison having that ability at all.

When he was our special teams coach we sucked ass to the point where if he didn't have unique ties to the team he probably would have been fired. He has done next to nothing to warrant serious consideration for HC.

Come to think of it, you may be right. Worse than Fossil.

It's funny, I remember constant calls for his firing while he was the ST coach. But now we want him as our head coach. Sadly I fear we may have to take what we can get at this point.

Definitely worse than Fassel. Fassel took a team to a SB and a couple other teams to the playoffs. I mean, he's not my first choice... but I'd take him over Dennison.

Yea, it sucks being the first pro sports franchise to ever have a down year, or go through a rebuilding process.

Dennison would have been a decent choice after firing Shanahan. We had a lot of pieces in place. He could have kept most of the offense in tact, running the same system and found a good DC. We are past that now tough. This is a different team, a team in shambles. I don't think Dennison is the right guy, with the right system, or experience to come in and put it back together again.
