Default Pat Bowlen wasn't comfortable with McDaniels as HC.

If you weren't comfortable with his experience, then why the **** did you hire him?

I wish someone at the DP had the balls to ask Bowlen if firing Shanahan was a mistake.

When I read that earlier, I had the same reaction. It makes me kind of wonder if he's saying he had doubts but he listened to Ellis.

Pat was probably afraid McClueless would trade HIM too!

In fairness, I'm convinced Bowlen didn't pull the trigger on that signing. My theory is that somehow, Bill Belichick got into Bronco HQ and did the whole deal.

Also, I have a completely new level of respect for Belichick. Not only does he put together a tough team, but he manages to send out his colleagues to destroy his enemies via Trojan horses. Browns? Check. Jets? Check. Broncos? Boosh. Chiefs? Possibly an additional layer of punishment for the Broncos.

You don't have to go out and hire a coach who's been a coach before or is a little older. There's a lot of young talent that's as good or better than a guy who has left the game and are getting older and now decide they want to get back in."

I don't think anybody could have possibly contemplated the train wreck McKid would become. I harshed the guy hard for shipping Cutler etc but he seemed to have his shT wired tight when he came out winning his first season and put us on the map...at least for a little while.

I think McKid does make for one hell of an interview. I'm sure he does a "wow" whiz bang presentation but the proof is in the pudding and now the guy's got some pudding. At some point down the road this heaping helping of humble pie could be the building block for a bright future for the guy. A lot of young prodigy types rarely get humbled that quickly and that harshly and when they do even fewer rebound from it. Those that do tend to put that learning experience to very good use. Prick will probably win 5 SBs. I hate that guy.

McD wasn't old enough and lacked requisite experience. Also, Shanahan had too much power and responsibility. So obviously you go out and hire the youngest rookie head coach, and give him too much power and responsibility.

We have a serious problem.

And pair him up with the Dominos delivery boy and yeah, you get a problem.

I hate Xanders. I just hate the guy. If he's got talent I have yet to see it and I would really like to. Really really like to. I'm not even sure what he does but I am sure that whatever it is I can do it better. I guarantee it. Whatever Xanders can do I can do better. Ride a bike, screw his wife, raise his kids, do his job, make a steak. Pick it. RaiderH8r>Xanders.

If he didn't think he had any experience why did he hire him? Better yet, why the hell did he put him in charge of nearly the entire team?

My problem isn't the fact McDaniels got canned for his poor record, my problem is that NOBODY in this organization takes responsibility for any of the **** ups that have occurred the last several years.

Xanders takes zero responsibility and neither does Ellis. Bowlen doing a spin job on his **** ups and doesn't acknowledge canning Shanny was a mistake.

Why do people pretend Pat is involved in the decision process anymore?

Ellis did this.

It's just plainly obvious to me that Pat is losing his marbles, and Ellis / Xanders have no business whatsoever in an NFL front office. Does Elway become owner by proxy in the next couple of years? Or does he become GM after some on the job training and canning Xanders? What in the hell does Ellis even do at this point?
