Default SI.com article on Broncos moving forward

Not really a lot of news, kind of sums up the past couple of weeks. Talks about the coaches that have passed and spins it pretty negative. Also reiterates Elway's commitment to Tebow.



ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- John Elway hasn't even interviewed his first head coaching candidate and already the Denver Broncos' new football boss is 0-for-2.

One day after Atlanta offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey canceled his interview with the Broncos, Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh decided to join the San Francisco 49ers without ever hearing Elway's offer.

Elway had told Harbaugh he'd love to talk to him about the Broncos job if he decided to jump to the NFL, but Harbaugh didn't consider Denver as a destination, interviewing with the 49ers and entertaining a cross-country courtship by the Miami Dolphins this week before accepting San Francisco's offer Friday.

The Broncos are in need of a massive makeover following the Josh McDaniels misadventure, which included a series of bad personnel decisions that led to a 4-12 season, the worst in franchise history.

The major rebuilding project needed in Denver might be scaring away some coaching candidates.

"Elway has indicated his next coach should be a believer in Tebow, the rookie quarterback who started the last three games after supplanting Kyle Orton but needs to transform into a pocket passer to be successful in the NFL.
"When Tim came out of college, he didn't come out of a pro-oriented type offense. He came out of the option, the shotgun, the pistol/cannon look ... so footwork-wise and technique-wise what I've been able to see over the last three games is that's got to improve," Elway said.
"I think we have high expectations of Tim to come in and do it right now because of who he is and the college career that he had. But there's a lot of things that the next head coach who comes in has got to be able to work with him on as far as the technique and accuracy."

The part about not interviewing Harbaugh is a fair point to make. John dismissed it as him wanting to coach college but then ends up with egg on his face when, that same day, Harbaugh goes to the Niners. It seems most likely that the Broncos simply aren't willing to pay Harbaugh's asking price but admitting that publicly would make a liar out of Joe Ellis, who previously said something about signing 8 head coaches if they have to.

Mularkey didn't cancel as much as he postponed. Peter King's original tweet said he was only keeping his interview with Cleveland as arrangements had already been made for him. He wants to focus on the playoffs.

For Harbaugh, it was between Miami, SF and staying at Stanford. Miami was backing up a brinks truck, but bailed on him. So he opted to stay close to home.

Sometimes, it's not as sinister as it seems.

If someone does not want to coach the Broncos or does not want the challenge of building a team, then I don't want them anyway. They can go **** themselves.

Mularkey already passed. I wouldn't mind Rivera, it would weaken a rival and hopefully make us better.

One day after Atlanta offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey canceled his interview with the Broncos, Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh decided to join the San Francisco 49ers without ever hearing Elway's offer.


Mularkey canceled his interview with the Broncos that was slated for Friday night in Atlanta, saying he wanted to focus on the playoffs, although he kept his scheduled interview with the Cleveland Browns on Saturday.




Joy!

Does anyone else not really care what Mularkey thinks? This is a guy that thought it would be better to air it out with Tommy Maddux and Kordell Stewart instead of running the ball when Jerome Bettis and a dominant defense was on that team. His loss, not ours.

Not Mularkey but the Harbaugh thing is egg on the face.

I think its the other way around. Harbaugh had an incentive to stay in the Bay Area, take more money than the Broncos can probably offer, and ESPN stated he wanted to play in the NFC on a team he thought could easily make the playoffs (which is any team in the NFC West).

The Mularkey thing is more of an indictment of how much status the Broncos HC position has lost. The Broncos will most likely pick a coach soon, most likely before Atlanta is out of the playoffs. Mularkey not rearranging his schedule for an interview for even next week to me says "please pick someone before my schedule opens up."

Sounds like Elway just wants to undermine Tim. We should all probably hate him.

Except Elway went on the radio and dismissed Harbaugh as wanting to remain in college the same day he signs with the Niners.

I think that these coaches want their cake and to eat it too. I doubt they want to come into a situation where the front office is reeling back personnel control after the two previous coaches made a mockery out of general management.

i believe the Bowlen will pay whatever it costs to get the right guy, and just because Harbaugh had all the hype going for him, is a guy coming from college with no NFL HC experience truly worthy of being one of the top paid coaches in the NFL? i consider this more of a wariness from the last hire. they went out for the guy with a ton of hype and ended up a bottomfeeder two years later for believing the hype and not going for actual proven ability.

Except he has already been a head coach at some level, is 47 years old, and has been a player in the NFL. Elway was interested in him but then suddenly he's a no-go because of Pats **** up with Josh even though Harbaugh isnt really like Josh? It seems more likely that its about money.

Experience working with a mobile, left-handed QB. Check.

Head coaching experience. Check.

A good X's and O's man, looking for a chance to make his mark. Check.

Sounds awful. Let's hire someone who's never been a full head coach, or has never coached in the pros. Much better solution.



The problem is that nobody here knows what they want.

I think it's the fact that he doesn't have to move his family. I also think he's going to regret the choice.
