    The Broncos have requested permission to interview Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett for their head-coaching vacancy.

    Owner Pat Bowlen's plate is filling up and it's unknown when he'll interview Garrett. The league's highest paid coordinator, Garrett oversaw a Dallas offense in 2008 that took a step back after finishing No. 3 overall the year prior. Garrett turned down the Lions, but Denver is a far more attractive job

    • I don't really want another old runningback here. I'd rather address it in the 2nd round unless we can get a great value with our first pick. With our schedule next year, this is a 2 year turnaround minimum, we can't afford a 30 year old RB.

      • Hey just seeing if anyone would like to join the new Forum Mock.
        Right now nobody has signed up to be the GM of the Broncos and there is also an expansion team in this forum mock. So go check it out. Signups are scheduled to end Sunday night.

        • Looks like we're going to be hiring McDaniels, Bowlen has moved the interview with Morris from Wednesday to Tomorrow, apparently so he can get the minority interview over with to hire his candidate. I was really hopeful for Spagnuolo, but it looks like we're getting McDaniels.

            if that's the case, then why are we interviewing leslie frazier?

              So far, that has been true. However McDaniels is a different kind of coaching prospect than, say, Romeo Crennell. He needs to be judged on his own merits.

              I believe he could do great things with our offense and comes from enough of a team-focused enviroment to know the importance of bringing in a veteran DC to help him establish the new regime. The change to 3-4 (likely, considering the Patriots connection) could be interesting... certainly a good way to clear the dead wood out of the defensive roster.

              • I've been told by someone that knows Spags personally that he is going to choose from one of these 3 options.

                Broncos
                Jets
                Giants DC

                Spags did not tell him that himself, but I just thought I would pass it along to you guys from someone that is close with him.

                  Spagnuolo certainly seems like the best fit when you consider our need (defense) and personnel (4-3). It also has the potential to keep more of our existing offensive coaches in place, while killing off the crap we have running the D.

                  That being said, I'm still fine with McDaniels if that's the way it turns out. Either way, I think we'll see a stronger set of coordinators get put into place which should help in terms of restoring the power balance (which is something that definitely went awry during the later years of Shanahan's tenure).

                  • If I were Spags, its a no brainer.

                    I think its btw the Broncos and Giants DC for him. I hope and pray he stays, but he's as good as gone.

                    At least he's going to a team I like.

                      Do it.
                      I posted this in the coaching thread earlier.

                      http://www.myfoxcolorado.com/myfox/p...Y&pageId=3.2.1
                      “What people don’t realize is that when coaches go into these kind of interviews they aren’t doing a power point presentation of their resumes; they are presenting and impressing with their philosophies. Sometimes they will be asked to draw up there X’s and O’s on the white board and explain their theoretical game plans and strategies,” said another NFL agent who wished not to be cited as well.
                      “Morris can go in there and blow the socks off the Broncos with all that alone. He’s a football guy with an untouchable connection to the players of today; and from what I hear, they need a man just like Morris in Denver. They don’t need a cookie cutter to solve that mess of a performance they had in San Diego, “ the same agent continued.
                      “Are you [edit] me? If anyone can change that organization it’s him. This guy is a forward thinker. He is qualified in the sense of giving a team a fresh look,” said Simeon Rice a former Bronco and Buccaneer.

                      “Are you for real? That would be a good look,” said Broncos running back Andre Hall.

                      wtf?

                      “Please, I don’t care if Colorado voted for Barack Obama, this is and will always be a Republican state. There is not going to be a black face as the head of our team. You know how they play these politics,” said an offensive starter who asked not to be named.

                      • Hey guys! I'm participating in the forum mock that Neko4 posted earlier in the thread about, and I chose the Broncos. I'm gonna be doing everything from coach selection, roster moves, FA signings, and drafting. I have an idea of what I want to do, but I'd love the opinion of Broncos fans as I haven't watched many Broncos games this season.

                        Most importantly, are there any Broncos FA's that ya'll are passionate about re-signing? Jamie Winborn? Ebenezar Ekuban? Kenny Peterson? Tom Nalen? Marlon McCree (I've put up Marquand Manuel in the expansion team's draft)? Those five are the ones I'm most intrigued about, but any opinions about lesser known players like Paymah would be great too.

                        • Winborn is still under contract in 2009. Webster is the FA. The "pile of crap" assessment still fits just fine.

                          Ekuban is the only every-down DE we have. He's mediocre at best, but we're so hurting at that position that I expect he'll stick around.

                          UFA's worth resigning if they come cheap:

                          DE Ebenezer Ekuban
                          CB Karl Paymah
                          DT Kenny Peterson
                          RB Michael Pittman (assuming the old guy has something left)

                          The rest need to be ditched.

                            winborn is a pile of crap. ekuban... meh. i wouldn't bother. i'd probably keep peterson for cheap, rotational stuff. nalen doesn't seem likely to return. mccree is worse than winborn. paymah's a decent dime guy, but i don't see much more from him.

                            depending on your coaching moves, i'd have various suggestions in the draft. if it's an offensive coach, i'd almost certainly go running back, assuming wells is there. if it's a defensive coach, i'd personally go with mays->linebacker->DT as the first round pick, though it'd be difficult to go wrong with S or LBer either way. i personally think DT is a mid-round pick, but others may have different opinions (or a higher opinion of the DT talent in the draft). interior OL is a mid-round need.

                            further, were i denver's GM, i'd look hard at throwing money at haynesworth (as much as it may pain you personally as a titans fan) or peppers, were they to become available. also keep in mind that dre bly is a nickel back at best, though a scheme that generates pressure and gives safety help might make him a legit starter again.

                            also, keep in mind that basically no matter what you do, there's a good chance i'll violently disagree with it. =P
                            Right now, each team is putting up 4 players into a pool for the expansion team to choose from. If a team's player gets picked, the salary and cap hit are lifted from that team and placed on the expansion team. I put up Marquand Manuel, Daniel Graham, Brandon Stokley, and Jamie Winborn up for eligibility. After the expansion team has chosen, we'll place tenders on RFA's and place the franchise tag on a player if we choose. After that point is where FA starts.

                            I plan on going after a defensive coach. I don't think I'll go after a 3-4 coordinator like Rex Ryan, as that won't do any good in a game that just looks at the short term, so I'm thinking about Steve Spagnuolo or Jim Schwartz. I think Spagnuolo's scheme would be better suited to compliment Denver's offesne than Schwartz's would be, though.

                            As for the draft, it really depends on who I go after in FA. I may be a Titans fan, but I want Haynesworth on my team, which is the Broncos in this case. But, I'll pass on the huge contract for players under the radar who combined may help the team more. I'm aiming for Mays in the draft, and then going BPA relevant to positional need in the rounds afterwards.

                            Lol, I don't mind if ya disagree with me. I don't exactly consider myself a Broncos expert. :)

                              it's true Titan, You can Hire Spags, End up signing Peppers, and Haynesworth, and then draft Mays in the first, and get Spikes to drop to you in the 2nd. And he would complain you didn't help the offense. =)
