Just would like to say hello to all. Im a new member here, and its very nice to see fellow fans of the greatest football team on earth. While this past week has been extremely trying on us, no doubt we will return to glory.
A little about me. I have been blessed with having the greatest job on earth in my opinion. I am the lead driver of the Denver Broncos. I had the honor of carrying my coach " Coach Shanahan" or " Coach " as I called him. He sat directly behind me less than 2 feet. He is a very nice and a class act. He always said Good Morning or Hello Michael and always shook my hand. I loved the smile he would get and the wink he would give me when I would tell him to " Run it up on them Coach, Leave no doubt " or when I would say as when they played the Raiders in Oakland. " Go wear that ass out coach !!! " and he did.
I, for sure will miss " Coach ". No doubt about that. I hope Mr. Bowlen will take great care and use extreme caution in selecting a new Head Coach.
Just my opinion. I believe the new head coach must be a defensive oriented coach. Mr. Bowlen cannot for any reason hire an offensive minded coach. That defeats the purpose of letting coach go, regardless of the nonsense that " it was time ". The new coach which should be Steve Spagnuolo. He is the best and brightest mind available today. I heard coach talk about him one day. The offense should be left alone. I say revamp the entire defense, keeping corners Bailey, Bly, rookies Jack " Ball Hawk " Williams, Linebackers Wesley Woodyard, and DJ Williams. Elvis Dumervil and maybe the old man Ebenezer Ekuban for leadership.
No doubt if Spagnuolo comes here, as well as he is liked in New York, there will most certainly be impact players to follow him. The danger in all this is if Coach Shanahan does decide to coach elsewhere this year, we stand to lose several high impact players on offense over the next couple of years. Most notably Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler. They were very close to coach and talking to them through the year very very loyal to him. The only thing that prevents this is locking them up NOW to long term contracts and winning starting next year. Anything less is a recipe for disaster and an early exit for the new coach.
