Time has seemed to be at a stand-still the past couple weeks since the news came across that Mike Shanahan was not going to be retained. In the blog/fan-site world, the end of the season brings ample opportunities to write about what went wrong, where the team can improve, who might be brought in to help, etc. The Broncos, for the past 15 years, have been a standard of consistency and stability, at least at the top, which made what we here at MHR do year in and year out pretty stable as well. That all changed on December 30th, and until yesterday we have been a 24/7 coaching search web-site.
Thankfully, that has come to an end. Now that we know Josh McDaniels will be the man to lead the Broncos into the future, along with Mike Nolan on the defensive side of the ball, we can jump with both feet into the pool of "Re-Loading Season 2009". More on that later.
First, I want to welcome all the new members of MileHighReport.com. The site has been generating alot of interest, especially during the past couple weeks, and we are glad to have you. Should you have any questions, comments, complaints, or suggestions for the website, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. This site, from Day 1 was created to provide Denver Broncos fans from all over the world a positive place to talk Denver Broncos football. I feel we have done just that and will continue to fill the void left by an ever-decreasing main-stream-media(MSM).
Remember, every member here at MHR is part of the commentary, using the FanPost and FanShot sections. You are all part of the coverage of the team. I feel we have the finest contributers on the web, but what makes HR great is the contributions we get from everyone, whether you have been a member since 2006 or signed up last night. Have an opinion, write a FanPost about it. See a link to Broncos news, post a FanShot. Read an interesting quote, FanShot it. Just be a part of what we are doing and fear not the dreaded "Message Board guy". Post-count, length of membership or "reputation points" do not equal your football IQ around here. We want your opinion.
That leads me into what you can expect from MileHighReport as we head into Re-Loading Season 2009. Here are just a few of the features you can look for --
- The Greatest Broncos of All-Time -- By The Numbers -- A look at Broncos greats through the years based on the jersey number they wore. Starting at 00 and heading all the way to 99.
- MHR University - With a new coach there will likely be a new scheme. All signs point to the Broncos moving towards a 3-4 defense, and Josh McDaniels isn't a West Coast Offense guy. What does it mean for the Broncos? MHR University will have the answers.
- NFL Draft 2009 -- The crown jewel of the 2009 Re-Loading season, there will be more to come in the coming days so I don;t want to spoil the surprise. Just rest assured that MHR will be your only destination for Broncos Draft Coverage.
- MHR History -- A look back at the lives and times of Broncos players from the past. There is much more to the history of the Orange and Blue than John Elway and Terrell Davis and we prove it!
Those are just a few. Everything you enjoy about MileHighReport will still be here, including all the features you have come to enjoy. The football off-season is the longest in sports. MHR has you covered.
