Adopt-a-Bronco:
VP John Elway
Default McCoy on 87.7 The Ticket - 1/20

• In football business, want to stay in one place as long as possible if it’s a nice place with a good organization. Was on his way out, had other opportunities but then Coach Fox came on and after talking it was a great opportunity couldn’t pass up.
• Fox will fit in because he’s a people person, a great leader and motivator. Has a defensive background. We’re in a similar situation to Carolina when Fox came in, saw Fox come in and do good things in the early development of the team. Players really like him and will play for him, he does things in their best interest. He’ll be great for the team and organization.
• Offense needs to be more consistent, playing complimentary football. Arizona game is an example when the offense didn’t help the defense because of 6 turnovers. Offense has to take advantage of opportunities. Have to be better on 3rd down, were good early in the season but slipped as season went on. Need to be balanced, with players understanding their role.
• Going to sit down evaluate positions of needs next week in Mobile. Staff will back next Thursday at Dove Valley to discuss opinions people have.
• Told all the QBs, Fox is going to play the best 11 guys every Sunday. Doesn’t care where you were drafted, what your name is, how long you’ve been in the league. Went through it in Carolina with Jake Delhomme. If he had a rough week, fans would be all over the team to make a move and Fox stuck with him because Delhomme gave the best chance to win and next thing they were in the playoffs, Championship game and Super Bowl. Fox will do what’s best for the team.
• Told Kyle Orton of Fox’s philosophy on playing. When everyone gets in he’ll sit down with each player and determine what’s best for the team.
• Great opportunity to call plays and run the offense. Fortunate to be tutored by many great coaches. Josh McDaniels is one of the most intelligent coaches ever been around, very creative offensive mind – really understands all three phases. Dan Henning in Carolina took him under his wing, Bill Musgrave in Carolina got him into the business, Richard Williamson who retired last year and Jeff Davison – been tutored by these guys along with playing for Mike Holmgren, George Seifert and Steve Mariucci. Taken a bit from each of these guys in his career.
• Foundation for offense is in place, going to keep same terminology. Will do something’s different in line with what McCoy’s done in the past other place. Will sit down as a staff Thursday and take everyone’s input. Ran the ball differently in Carolina with Dave Magazu coming in to coach the OL, worked with him for 7 years – there are something’s that will change. Everyone knows about Fox’s past, going to take advantage of the players we have. Through the lockout, things may change in regards to OTAs and mini-camp.
• (In response to question about Tim Tebow’s reputation as a clutch player and Orton not being one) It takes all 11 guys, everybody has to play better in the 4th quarter. Also, Timmy could’ve done some things better early in the games. Matter of everyone being on the same page and playing as one. Struggled in 4th quarter early this season, have to a better job of coaching.
• Will be working directly with Tebow every day during the season. Talked with him after the season ended, mentioned he has things he can help Tebow with. Great thing with Tim is if you teach him some things, he’s going to work as long as possible to correct it and do what you want him to do.
• There was a definitely a reason they were conservative playcalling against Oakland. Have to but players in the best situation to succeed. In Tim’s case he hadn’t taken a lot of reps. Oakland plays tight man-to-man, have to be careful especially with Nnamdi Asomugha there – don’t want to expose a rookie QB. Have to do what’s best for the team and get Tebow success early on. Plenty of young QBs are thrown in, wing it all over the field and have their confidence destroyed. With Tim, tried to do things he does well with letting him run and get him comfortable. Firm believer have to make sure the QB understands and knows what to do every play. If they don’t like it or know it, already two strikes against you – the game moves too fast. As a rookie QB, so many things defenses do – until been in the league playing for a year or two you’re going to see something new every other snap. Tried to minimize mistakes and let him play natural instead of worrying about every detail.
• Learned from Henning, can’t worry about what people think about playcalling. For example on 3rd and long draw against Oakland, Tim scored on that play. In San Diego game, 3rd down conversion was QB deal. Just have to call the game the way you think. Don’t want to put defense in bad situation. When playing rookie QB, may call a more conservative game.

How much of a push do you think we'll do in free agency? they mention sitting down and evaluating positions of need, we obviously won't be able to get too much in the draft

Why does everyone say that Mcd is the smartest brightest mind in football? I just don't see it

Probably because the dude really is a bright football mind. Bad manager, questionable morality, but football smart

It is probably true. There is just a lot more to being a coach than knowing what you should do in a certain situation or being creative. You have to be able to sell your plan to the players, teach it to them so they know what they are doing in every situation, and then motivate them to actually do it with some intensity. I think McDaniels just lacks all of these other basic skills when it comes to coaching. That and his personnel decisions were really his downfall. You can be the best play caller in the world and you won't go anywhere with such inferior talent.

Now that you have disclosed your opinion maybe they will realize their thinking is flawed.

I really like the fact that we are going to be using the same terminology. I think that will cut down on errors and mistakes as our guys will not have to yet again, learn a new language of plays.

Esp. helpful for our rookies- tebow, thomas, decker etc.

You have to be able to sell your plan to the players, He did that as reported by Dawkins and several others


teach it to them so they know what they are doing in every situation,He has been credited with being a great teacher, Kup's dad said Chris said he learned more from McD than any other coach he ever had

and then motivate them to actually do it with some intensity.he seemed to run hot and cold on this one.

I think McDaniels just lacks all of these other basic skills when it comes to coaching. That and his personnel decisions were really his downfall.McD gets a failing grade around here on this but it is too early to tell on some of the guys. I give him a C+

You can be the best play caller in the world and you won't go anywhere with such inferior talent.

It was Spygate II that mainly did him in.

Well I guess it wasn't Mcd's offense prowess that made New England go since the juggernaut didn't miss a beat without him

Brandon Lloyd said on the Fan that opposing defenses were calling out our plays based on the formation. Alfred Williams laughed and then apologized to him. Hopefully they tighten that up.

irrelevant, there are a lot of excellent football minds in NE, because they succeed still doesn't mean that McD was not also an excellent mind. They haven't won any playoff games without him. Don't let his Failure as a HC...maybe as a person cloud the fact that while not everyone who knows him likes him, they almost universally say he knows his football.

This is the funny thing about the current board personality. It's either all good or all bad. Red light - green light.

I don't know about the smartEST, but remember how we went 6-0 and then lost a ****load of games? Our players didn't suddenly get worse, McDaniels just ran out of ways to hide the lack of talent. The win over the Patriots was his piece de resistance (add accents where necessary there). We had no business winning that game.

Don't get me wrong, I still wish he ran the ball more.

We haven't won any play-off games without Shanahan...

I just wanted to post that so you can see how much sense your post makes...

Why is it so hard to separate the duties of a head coach from the duties of a offensive coordinator

We know Josh is a great OC and knows his Xs and Os. However he was hired here to be a head coach not an OC



If you think HC and OC are synomous then that right there is the real issue
and to say see Josh got another job ha ha is assine. He will go on to have success being a OC anywhere in the NFL

Question is has he matured enough to be a HC. Is his integrity issues deep in his core values. Can he learn how to motive 53 distinct personalities and have them moving in the right direction. Visison is great team first do your job is awesome, executing that visision is another thing.

Helps to have talent
