I imagine he would have some knowledge of running a ZBS, although I would much rather have Alex Gibbs back.

The shadow of Shanahan isn't that daunting... especially if you are defensive coach. If you think you can rebuild the ruined defense, this is the best job available in the NFL right now.

I think it's just fine following Shanahan, especially when the table is now set on offense: Cutler/WRs/TEs/OL. They just need a RB or two, they even have a kicker, otherwise the focus is all on the defense. And there are some pieces on the defensive line that Shanahan brought in (Dumervil, Moss, Crowder, Thomas, Powell) who haven't yet flourished as a whole.

Bowlen said in the presser, ALL coaches will be let go. and ALL of the personnel department will remain.

I really hope he reconsiders and at least keeps Bates and Turner on the offensive staff.

He worded it a little more carefully than that... something like, he didn't "anticipate" any of the coaching staff would stay.

However...

That's really just setting things up to allow the new Head Coach to make the decision, which is 100% the right thing to do. Also, I heard on the radio that Bowlen okayed Jeremy Bates contract extension a few days ago... so he's not cruelly being thrown out the door.

Another interesting point was that Bowlen indicated he was looking specifically for a coach, and wasn't thinking about a GM at this time. Perhaps the power situation with Shanahan has taught him a lesson?

SPAGNUOLO TO INTERVIEW WITH BRONCOS

Posted by Mike Florio on January 1, 2009, 1:45 p.m. EST

Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com reports that Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will interview on Saturday for the unexpected head-coaching vacancy in Denver.

It will be, per Glazer, an “informal” interview, due to the fact that Spagnuolo has committed to other interviews during the Giants’ playoff bye week.

Spagnuolo has interviewed and/or will interview with the Lions, Browns, and Jets. Last year, he was considered for the Redskins’ job, but opted not to leave New York.

Glazer also reports that the Broncos will interview Bucs defensive coordinator Raheem Morris on Monday.

Since former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan held full authority over the roster and, as a practical matter, the personnel side of the operation, it remains to be seen whether Broncos owner Pat Bowlen hires a G.M. and a head coach, or a head coach who will operate with the same degree of control as Shanahan enjoyed.

The challenge of hiring a G.M. and a head coach is that it can get pricey — especially with a reported total of $21 million owed to Shanahan over the next three years.

ENGLEWOOD — Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said the process of finding a new coach would begin quickly with the arrival of the new year Thursday.

He meant what he said.

The Broncos moved quickly on New Year's Day, locking up interviews with three NFL assistants as well as making a preliminary move to contact University of Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops.

Bowlen could not be reached for comment on any of the day's events.

But the Broncos have finalized meetings with New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, newly named Tampa Bay defensive coordinator and former secondary coach Raheem Morris and New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

Spagnuolo will be the first to interview for the Broncos job since Mike Shanahan was fired Tuesday, with a meeting set for Saturday with Broncos officials.

Morris, who Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden recently promoted to replace the departed Monte Kiffin to run Tampa Bay's defense, will meet with the Broncos on Monday.

Also Thursday, the Broncos made preliminary moves toward Stoops, whose team will play Thursday in the Bowl Championship Series title game in Miami.

Wednesday, in his lone public appearance since Shanahan's firing, Bowlen continued to express the Broncos' job would be attractive to prospective coaches because of the offensive performance this season and the youth of the roster.

"This job . . . this is a very highly thought-of job and I expect to get a very good head coach. . . . I want him to be a 10 in every area," he said.

That appears to be the case in securing an interview with Spagnuolo, who will be the first in line for the Broncos because of rules regarding assistant coaches with teams in the playoffs.

When interviewing a coach with a team that has a first-round bye, as the Giants do, the Broncos are facing a Sunday deadline.

After that, assistants with playoff teams can be interviewed only after their teams are knocked out of the playoffs or in the week immediately after the conference championship games if their teams advance to the Super Bowl.

Because of that Sunday deadline, the Broncos aren't expected to interview Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz - the Titans have a bye this weekend so he will not be in the first wave of their interviews.

But Spagnuolo is a popular target around the league.

He spoke with the Browns on Thursday, is scheduled to interview with the New York Jets on Saturday and the Detroit Lions also have asked for, and received, permission to interview Spagnuolo at some point.

He moved the Broncos interview to Saturday evening despite the team being the last one of the four to contact him.

Because of the interview with the Jets and the Giants' preparations for their playoff game in a little more than a week, the Broncos will interview Spagnuolo in the New York area.

The Broncos are expected to interview McDaniels on the same trip as their interview with Spagnuolo.

The Redskins made a significant push to get Spagnuolo after the Giants' Super Bowl win against the previously undefeated Patriots in February, with Redskins owner Daniel Snyder bringing Spagnuolo to his estate for two days.

But Spagnuolo elected to stay with the Giants.

Giants players routinely have lauded Spagnuolo's preparation and the Giants finished fifth in defense during the regular season despite defensive end Michael Strahan's retirement and the loss of defensive end Osi Umenyiora to a season-ending injury early in the year.

Morris just was promoted by the Buccaneers to replace Kiffin, the team's longtime defensive coordinator who left to coach with his son Lane at the University of Tennessee.

A personality many in the league say people just gravitate to, Morris will be a popular head coaching candidate, several general managers predict, in the coming years if he is not hired by the Broncos.

The Buccaneers were second in the NFC against the pass this season and fourth in the league.

For his part, Stoops, who visited Broncos training camp during the summer with his coaching staff, is a known quantity to Bowlen.


But his contract at the football powerhouse averages about $3 million a year, and he will earn $6 million this year because of a $3 million bonus for staying at the school 10 seasons that kicked in on New Year's Day.

Bowlen is an Oklahoma graduate and he did spend some time with Stoops during the visit in August. The Broncos had not had any direct contact with Stoops as of Thursday, but they were making overtures to his representatives.

It is unlikely Stoops, who also was considered for the Redskins job last year, would consider an interview before his team faces Florida at Dolphin Stadium.

The Broncos also have discussed Minnesota Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and could seek permission to speak with him once he is available to interview. The Vikings play host to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday in an NFC wild- card game.

Because of the league's Rooney Rule, the Broncos have to interview at least one minority candidate for the job and the league would prefer more than one is considered.

edgerrin james (assuming he has a good postseason,) might be a hot commodity, as he just asked for a trade

if you remember, we tried to pursue him in 2006, but we were obv. outbid by the cards. What do you think about Edge running in a 2 back system for us? The upside is he recently showed he still has a burst last game of the season, however the down side is why take a back that has had his fair share on injuries when we just put 7 guys on I.R.?

How about a durable guy like LaGarrette Blount in the 2nd round?

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.

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.

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.

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.

“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?

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.

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. =)
