Frankly, I think we absolutely have to hire an offensive minded head coach. The development of our QBOTF, whether that's Siemian, Lynch, or somebody else, absolutely depends on it. If we had a top 10 veteran QB already on the roster then it wouldn't matter as much. Whoever we hire must be a guy who can get the most out of our offense. We have talent on defense and as long as someone doesn't come in and completely blow it up, we'll be okay there. Our future depends directly on fixing the Oline and developing a quality starting QB.

Clearly, but I suggest the Broncos consult us fans before hiring another offensive minded coach.

If Kyle Shanahan gets an interview and is able to bring his dad on as offensive coordinator and keep Wade, I would love to have him. Wade needs to be retained at all costs though, guy was a significant reason we won the Super Bowl. Vance Joseph would be a great option as well, depending on who he brings in to run the offense.

Vance Joseph, with the caveat that Wade Phillips would stay on and in charge of the defensive side of things and a veteran offensive coordinator is brought in. Vance can focus on head coach duties while learning the ropes and not being saddled with the load of play-calling. Not an unheard of proposition.

Or Peyton Manning. Just because he'd be a better option than Tim Tebow.

I would love to see Peyton coach this team.

I would also think Kyle is the most likely and best fit considering where our QBs are at, and Dennison needs to go.

I would consider Mike McCoy also as offensive coordinator.

Kyle would decide on his OC though......although if I was Elway I would tell him that Dennison is off the table. This years offense was horrid and thats at Dennisons feet.

Peytons issue as a head coach would be can he learn to temper his expectation of perfection with unperfect play.

I think Dennison can stay, but it needs to be as an offensive line coach or offensive assistant. Guy is simply not coordinator material, and every time he has had the title it has mostly been as a figurehead who organizes game plans rather than calls them. The offense was extremely stagnant, and showed very little willingness to highlight our elite receivers on the outside.

Both had 1000 yard years, yes, but the WR screens and big plays in the short passing game we had under Manning were a thing of the past. Even in a down year, Sanders and DT had more opportunities. For whatever reason this year, Dennison and Kubiak abandoned the entirety of the Manning plays this year, and we saw the result on the field. The next offensive coordinator, and hopefully it is a guy like McCoy or Ken Whisenhunt, needs to bring a modern passing game to the table. The YAC totals just speak of horrible offensive design and execution across the board.

2016 DT YAC: 316 (1083 total)
2016 Sanders YAC: 259 (1032 total)
Vs.
2015 DT YAC: 498 (1304 total)
2015 Sanders YAC: 377 (1135 total)

Dennison simply rode what was already built by Gibbs when he was the oline coach. He was a shit ST coach, did nothing but carry on what was already built as the oline coach, and is a shit OC. The guy doesn't do anything to deserve staying around. He needs to be gone.

I think I would die of laughter if Elway hired (even offered) the job to McDaniels. I would just read the reactions from those who still think Cutler was a franchise QB. That would be funny as hell.

It seems to me as of now that the choice is going to be between Kyle Shanahan and Vance Joseph.

If Dennison is hired, it would be a big mistake. I agree with everything you said. He has shown true ineptitude, and him being a HC would be a big mistake.

I would like Elway to approach Dennison and say something along the lines of this....

That may or may not be true, but even with Shanahan and Kubiak aside, McDaniels and Harbaugh both thought enough of him to allow him to be on their staffs. Again, I don't think he is coordinator material, but his deficits are with his unimaginative passing game and insistence on a huddled offense. Guy is still an asset to any coaching staff, but he has no business being anywhere near play calling or the passing game.

Seeing as how the guy has gotten two interviews to be our head coach in the past, I feel there will always be a job for him in the organization. With a coordinator title again is highly unlikely.

I'm a little baffled that so many people are all in on Shanahanahan, Jr. The old man's tenure didn't end all that well.

This is us now
Total offense - 27th
Rushing yards - 27th
Passing yards - 21st
Scoring - 21st

Now this is the Falcons
Total offense - 2nd
Rushing yards - 5th
Passing yards - 3rd
Scoring - 1st

Not to mention he's taken Matt Ryan who has struggled over the last few years and turned him into a passer just barely under 5,000 yards (some of that praise goes to Cooter also)

I'm kinda baffled why so many people are of the mindset that the old man's tenure has any bearing over Shanny the younger's potential with us. I am not my father, I have learned from my father, but I do things my own way. Much the same, Shanny Jr learned from his father (who was a brilliant offensive mind) but he's proven himself a capable offensive mind on his own. It's really unfair to judge him based off his father because he's proven that he's a capable coach on his own and moved outside of his father's shadow.

Agreed. But I would throw Peyton Manning into Shannhan's downfall. He was building teams to beat the Colts who bounced us nearly every year we did make the playoffs. Our best year after Elway left was with a VERY balanced team in 2005/06 that saw Jake Plummer take us to the AFCCG after we took out Brady and Manning got wiped out by the Steelers in the other Divisional round. Then that crazy Shanny eye started twitching because his new plan was to outscore the opponents with Jay Cutler's potential. Cutler was the beginning of the end for Shanny, but it started with not being able to overcome Peyton. He had QB envy when he should have left his focus on a solid D and a wicked running attack.

Funny how Peyton Manning manged to bring this franchise down, only later to build it up to a contender.

This is us now
Total offense - 27th
Rushing yards - 27th
Passing yards - 21st
Scoring - 21st

Now this is the Falcons
Total offense - 2nd
Rushing yards - 5th
Passing yards - 3rd
Scoring - 1st

Not to mention he's taken Matt Ryan who has struggled over the last few years and turned him into a passer just barely under 5,000 yards (some of that praise goes to Cooter also)

I think Shanahan could be a very good coach, but to play devil's advocate here, Denver is hiring him as a head coach, not an offensive coordinator. And Matt Ryan is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. He's thrown for over 4,500 yards the last five seasons. I don't really call that struggling. It's not like Shanahan made him one of the best, he is one of the best. We also don't have Matt Ryan.

With quarterbacks more on par with Denver's talent at the position, he had an offense ranked 27th in scoring and 23rd in yards in Cleveland in 2014. His best season was probably 2012 when he had a Washington offense under Robert Griffin finish 4th in points and 5th in scoring, but in his other three years the Redskins were ranked in the 20s in yards and teens in points.

I think he is head coaching material, but I'm leery of looking at the offense in Atlanta the last two years with elite talent at every skill position and equating that to Denver's situation where the only elite talent is at wide receiver.

I'd be curious to see who his offensive coordinator would be.

I will agree with all of the above, but I will add Atlanta has had improvement in the last two years with Shannahan.

That is true. Modest improvement and the addition of Devontae Freeman, which I'd say was a marvelous talent evaluation and acquisition.

MO, I get where you are coming from and I actually agree with you to a small extent as I was actually talking about his Browns tenure with a coworker the other day, BUT I think you are being borderline insulting to our QB's to even mention them in the same breathe as cleveland. I would actually put our QB talent more on par with what he had in Washington to be real honest.

His offenses he's been in charge of have ranked
2008 in Houston
3rd in overall offense
4th in passing yards
13th in rushing yards
17th in scoring

2009 in Houston
4th in overall offense
1st in passing yards
30th in rushing
10 in scoring

2010 in Washington
18th in overall offense
8th in passing yards
30th in rushing
25th in scoring

2011 in washington
16th in overall offense
14th in passing yards
25th in rushing
26th in scoring

2012 in washington
5th in overall offense
20th in passing
1st in rushing
4th in scoring

2013 in washington
9th in overall offense
16th in passing
5th in rushing
23rd in scoring

2014 Browns
23rd overall offense
20th passing
17th in rushing
27th in scoring.

All of this essentially supports your thought process (which I get a whole lot more than "he's Mike's son and mike didn't end his time well here) I get what you are saying, that he doesn't do well if the talent isn't there, but what I can say is that I think he's a great X's and O's coach and has a wealth of knowledge. I'm not worried about the talent part because I trust John Elway to make the talent happen. All Kyle has to do is coach.

To further speak to your comparison to the Browns. Brian Hoyer took the majority of the snaps that season...While the yardage numbers are similar, that's about where it ends. TS was 5% more accurate, threw for 18 TD's compared to hoyers 12 and 10 interceptions compared to hoyers 13. Hoyer also had a better line blocking for him, though not by a lot. I'd take TS over Hoyer. I know that isn't saying a lot because Hoyer is terrible, but the biggest thing I would take into consideration when comparing TS to other QB's is his TD to INT ratio. Even comparing TS to all of the QB's that Shanny Jr had in washington prior to 2012, TS put up better overall numbers and threw a lot less picks (this in his first year starting) Maybe you are right, maybe he'll only ever be a game manager, but so is Alex Smith, and I'd take Alex Smith right now. The game manager title gets used in a derogatory fashion, but I don't think it's always a bad thing to be, especially if you have a defense built like ours.

Yep, same coaching tree, similar defenses. Vance would likely have input over the defense, but he would let wade continue with much of what he's already doing.

How does the name Bill O'Brien sound? Apparently the season-long blame game between GM Rick Smith and Head Coach Bill O'Brien is boiling over to the point that Bill O'Brien expects to be dismissed or resign once his postseason with the Texans is over. O'Brien was not consulted when the front office committed to Brock Osweiler and been adamant about this all year.

O'Brien has won two division titles in two years but each time it has been with a disastrous offense. Of course, Coach Foulmouth came into the league as an offensive coach.

Sorry, not insulting to our quarterbacks, more speaking about what I see. They aren't better than Cleveland's quarterbacks at the time.

Denver's problems on offense won't be solved by a head coach or a coordinator. There's a fundamental talent problem on the offensive side of the football.

Besides, I hope whoever comes in is a delegator and a leader, rather than someone who will delve deeply into scheme on either side of the ball. Let the coordinators do that. I believe Shanahan is a good to great offensive mind, but if he's the head coach, he's got to hire a coordinator to fix the offense as much as they can. The fundamental fix has to come from Elway (I think he's fully aware of that, I'm not suggesting he isn't).

I think people are heavily supporting the hire of Shanahan as a fix-all to the offense, and I don't think you can accomplish that in the hiring of a head coach.

Trench issues, fix those, things get better.

QB is what it is, you arent just going to find another manning out there. See if either of these guys can develop while you get that oline working.

Need a big ole fatty to anchor that nose spot, and abit rotation at DE, add a better coverage lb and well maybe both guys in the middle.

Well shoot, the list got bigger...

And that's where we disagree...It's not a talent issue, it's a coaching issue. That and an inept line issue. More than anything I actually think Barrone was the biggest issue, dude cannot coach up an o-line at all...
