    I don't think you give him enough credit. He had a bad GM and still managed to win, should have won a SB but his OC (a guy we would all kill to have as our HC btw) let him down. Granted, Quinn could have and should have stepped in and demanded more running and settling for the FG. I think Quinn probably learned a ton from that experience.

    Quinn is a good football coach, denying that is illogical.

    With that said, my first choice is Hackett my second is O'Connell and my third is Callahan. Yes I would much prefer the young OC guy, but I also won't be mad if it's Quinn.

    Good grief. I can’t believe folks are still blaming that SB loss on Shanny.

    It was 28-3 at halftime. The entire loss falls on the defense. Be logical and honest and tell me I’m wrong.

    I've blocked most of it out. All I know is if they run the ball instead of pass on that one drive they kick a FG and win the game. You're right it's overly simplistic to blame it all on Shanny but I stand by my opinion that 2 run plays and a FG they win and it becomes an almost comeback for the ********* in NE and we're not even talking about this.

    one bad play on offense vs. an all-time defensive collapse. . .
    “When we do find that guy, we’ve got to have the continuity on the offensive side to where we can train him and develop him and get him there. This is our fourth offense in probably three or four years. Quarterbacks need to be developed. You don’t find one ready-made. We got to have a solid system in place for when we do go after whatever guy it may be, a young guy or a trade or whatnot.”

    It wasn't just a defensive collapse. Of I recall there was some turnovers, short fields and lack of drives that put Atlanta's defense in bad spots too.

    My overall point is that Quinn is a guy who can lead a team to a SB victory, I have faith in that. Like I said he's not my first choice but he's also a guy I'd be proud to root for. I also trust that he'll be a big upgrade to what we've had.

    Bronco land is looking up guys. We're on the precipice of getting a gajillionaire owner who will probably sink a shit ton of money into our team and area, a new HC who is either going to be a young offensive juggernaut or at a very minimum he'll be the adult in the room and make good decisions, and probably a new QB. This is exciting guys, embrace it.

    Quinn could be what the front office is looking for. We -fans- are ready to move on to something new, a young offensive minded coach. Could Quinn bring Kellen Moore as his OC?
    That will be fantastic and easier for me to digest

    I will feel the same way about Quinn that I did about Fangio. Blah in the hopes they can prove me wrong, but doubting it will ever bear fruit.
    Draft a QB, get an edge rusher, Find a RT and we can get back to doing things right

    Also F Cousins and any other scrub QB in Denver ever again, and please make Hackett our HC as well, Thanks!

    This ^

    It was the change in offensive philosophy that along with bad defense allowed the Pats to get back in the game. The Falcons totally went away from pounding the ball which does fall on Shanahan there.

    Same.

    Dude has a history of starting out strong and then collapsing as the season (and games) wear on. If he is chosen i pray he proves me wrong but i just dont see it.

    Shanahan has addressed it a couple times, and I at least respect his explanation -- basically saying that they were going to stay aggressive, trust putting the ball in the guys hands who got them there, and on the flip side if they convert a couple of those first downs instead of having the worst possible outcomes, then the game is iced...

    Obviously I was also first guessing it in the moment, and hindsight is 20/20 they should have run the ball -- but it's kind of a live by the sword and die by the sword mentality with guys who have aggressive coaching philosophies. I respect it and miss having a coach with that type of mentality.
