  • Broncos Head Coach Possibilities

    I like # 2 & 3 on this list. There are more possibilities out there.

    Not buying the Harbaugh rumor.

    What’s your take?
    The Denver Broncos could be looking for a new head coach in 2022, and if they are, there are some names flying under the radar to consider.

    I am intrigued by both Callahan and O’Connell but admittedly don’t know enough about either one. I am disinterested in both Caldwell and Frazier. Both would be “safe” hires, along the lines of Fox I suppose, but also very boring and not needle moving. This organization needs a different approach right now I think. My top choice remains Hackett, and #2 might be Pederson with the right OC.

      I really think we need an offensive guy, young, can develop QBs & innovate on offense.

        That would be my preference as well, and by a wide margin. Another problem with defensive minded head coaches is that if your OC does well he gets poached, so you’re always facing that challenge. Not something the Broncos have had to worry about with Joseph or Fangio!

          I can’t believe what Harbaugh is getting paid at Michigan. He’s WAY underpaid. I think this “rumor” is all about addressing that.

            We just need an new OC to do that .

              I’d shut the board down and become a cricket fan if we hired Caldwell.

                He took a voluntary cut with his initial underperformance. I agree, now he wants it back.

                  I disagree in regards to Fangio.

                    You go offensive genius, defensive guru, of CEO type. All can work, but I’m seeing lots to pick from on the young offensive coach type.

                        Welcome home, Roh.

                        I keep thinking about Shanny angles. But he's pretty old to take on a new HC gig at this point.

                          To have anything Shanny gotta give Joe Ellis the boot.

                            Yeah, he’ll be 70 when next season starts. No thanks!

                              Hopefully he’s given the boot regardless.

                                Right back at ya, Beav.

                                Shanny is younger than Pete Carroll, who (come to think of it) might get fired any day now by the Seahawks. 🤔

                                  Nathaniel Hackett should be at the top of the list. I also like Todd Bowles. I never got the impression that he got a fair shake at NYJ.

                                    With the rules making it easier every year for offenses I want a coach that’s offensive minded that can scheme guys open. I also want a coach that coaches to the players strengths. Not forcing their coaching style onto the players. IE…ramming square pegs into round holes.

                                      John Harbaugh did that with Lamar Jackson. Imagine a clown GM and HC who states they passed on a great QB in the draft cause they didn’t fit their system….

                                        The top 10 offenses this year are: TB, Dallas, KC, Chargers, Bills, Rams, Ravens, Cards, SF, and Cinci. All playoff teams, with just Ravens out of the picture because of their injuries.

                                        On the opposite, the top 10 defenses: Bills, Panthers, NE, SF, Bears, Browns, Philly, NO, Broncos, Cards. Only 5 of 10 are playoff teams, which 3 of those 5 also have offenses in the top 10.

                                        It’s vastly harder to build a winning team around a defense, especially when you have a crappy offense.

                                          I don’t necessarily disagree with your point, but ranking offenses and defenses by yards probably isn’t the best measurement.

                                            It's hard to win without a QB.

                                            There have been a handful of coaches in the history of the NFL that could win without a QB.

                                            Joe Gibbs. and a handful of guys who could win in the regular season, and not championships. That's pretty much it.

                                            To demonstrate the point even further....14 teams make the playoffs now. Of the top 14 rated QBs by QBR (not a perfect stat, but it's reasonable) ...2 are giong to miss the playoffs. 14th ranked Russel Wilson, and one of Derek Carr or Justin Herbert. That's it. Outside the top 14, Dak Prescott (17th) and Jalen Hurts (20th) are in.

                                            NONE of the bottom 12 in the NFL are in. and just 2 of the bottom 18 are.

                                            Coaching around a crap QB is hard.

                                            Fangio would probalby be a decent enough HC if Denver had a better Qb...granted, some of that is Fangios fault for wanting Joe Flacco, and then wanting Teddy.

                                            Won't matter much who your coach is IF you don't find a QB.

                                              The coach matters when he’s the one choosing the QB.. Adam Gase ruined Tannehill…Vrabel saved him.

                                                SF, Ravens, Cards, are not top 10 offenses, and Carolina, Chicago, and Cleveland are not top 10 D. Yards mean nothing in both.

                                                  4 years ago, 3 of the final 4 QB's were backups and one of them won the SB against the best Qb in the league. Oh, and how about Ben Roeth in SB XL who had a 22.6 QB rating, or us with Peyton in 2015. I could comment on a lot of Qb's who need to thank their D's for a lot of their successes. Ben, Eli whose team beat the best QB twice.....due to defense. I'm not saying a team doesn't need a QB who can run the offense but teams that build solely around the offense usually don't meet success, like the Chiefs last year and till mid season this year.
