When Mike Shanahan was fired I felt very angry and then overwhelmed with concern. Sure Shanny had evolved into something more of a "my way coach" than 'the mastermind'. Two years seems like yesterday but I was really excited to see Denver line up one particular coach by the name of Spagnola. Sadly, we chose Josh 'Freaking' McDaniels. I was not pleased with this and to fast forward the stripping of a franchise I'll post the following names. Cutler. Scheffler. Hillis. Marshall. Nolan. Turner. Dennison.
As of now, we're in the market for a QB, TE, RB, and stabilizing our coaching staff. You see I'm a firm believer that it will always come down to coaching. So regardless how we feel about QB1 and QB2, the coaching staff have to believe that the best player to execute can be trusted. Freaking McDaniels tore up a reputable franchise in a matter of two years. I don't care what the Patriots did during their 19 and "NO" season. They lost in the Super Bowl and records are measured second behind Super Bowls. What a mistake.
Now I am not a Tebow fan but I get it. He has potential. As does every Bronco currently trying their hardest to make the 53 man roster plus the practice squad. Except I want players that can progress and in that process help others get better. Guess its why I really enjoyed Cutler's development but Shanny really handled the Plummer situation horribly and that's my point.
Many of us wanted Cutler over Plummer (who had over 60 wins) for his mobility and diversity (mobile/pocket passer) and we're doing it all over again. For once as fans we need to understand that EVERY team goes through their dark ages. Hopefully that has ended with the dismissal of Freaking McDaniels. Fox is a proven winner regardless what we read from his time in Carolina ( I live in NJ and he did great as DC for the Giants).
So for as long as I can remember, I am placing my trust once again on Elway and the people he's surrounded himself with and support the coaches as they mold a team with an identity built around the defense and a solid offense. Until then I hope as fans we can get over the yester-years and get through this together. I guess I have to start first...
