Demarcus Walker Jersey
<!-- body { font:12px Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #000; background-color: #EEF2FB; margin: 0px; } --> The search for a new head coach is quite the experience. Not for the people who are involved in the process Demarcus Walker Jersey , but for the fans. Though I’m sure the people who make the hire would agree it’s not something they would prefer to do that often. When teams make clear who the candidates are, fans begin the process of pondering who they favor and loathe. Since Vance Joseph was fired last Monday, fans of the Denver Broncos have done that with the five (known) candidates to become the organization’s 17th head coach. As it stands today, John Elway and the committee have done four interviews and have one left scheduled for Monday.To play off of that, here is how the MHR staff lists their favorite and least favorite candidates. Included is a bio for each with some background on who they are and where they come from. It’s not as extensive as the “get-to-knows” I did on each of the three candidates from the last search for a Broncos head coach, but there are two more candidates and it seems the interviews started quicker this go-round (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it).On the latest MHR Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I were joined by Ryan Edwards and Andrew Mason to ponder the strategy for the next Broncos head coach. We asked the hosts of First & 10 @ 10 on Orange & Blue 760 who their favorite is, and you’ll find out shortly who that was ... 1 — Vic Fangio The current defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears is my and the staff’s choice to be Denver’s head coach. One of the big reasons is the success of his defense and the Godfather-like attitude he’ll bring to the Broncos locker room. The key is who Fangio’s coordinators are, especially on offense. But the way he coaches, his system and the respect he’s earned from players is incredibly enticing. When you consider the torment Patrick Mahomes will cause over the next decade or so, an “evil genius” like Fangio is crucial.Personal Birthdate: Aug. 22, 1958 Birth place: Dunmore, PA.

As noted earlier , Mase and Ryan both had Munchak as their favorite to become the Broncos next head coach on the podcast. After listening to both of them, it’s intriguing. Munchak is known to develop players, and he could improve one of the biggest issues in Denver for the last few years — the offensive line. Plus, the fact he’s spent some time in Pittsburgh will help him evolve and grow from his first stint as a head coach with the Tennessee Titans. Munchak is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame as an offensive lineman.Personal Birthdate: March 5, 1960 Birth place: Scranton, PA Education: Scranton High; Pennsylvania State University Coaching resume 1994-96: Houston Oilers (offensive assistant/quality control) 1997-2010: Titans (offensive line coach)2011-13: Titans (head coach) Head coach recordRegular season: 22-26 (.458)Postseason: No playoff gamesCareer record: 22-26 (.458)2014-present: Steelers (offensive line coach) Pittsburgh offensive rankings in 2018Total yards per game: Fourth (403.3)Rushing yards per game: Thirty-first (90.3)Passing yards per game: Second (313.0)Points per game: Tied for sixth (26.8) 3 — Zac Taylor Perhaps the biggest risk/reward candidate of the bunch. The current Los Angeles Rams quarterbacks coach is only 35, and you’re left to wonder if the hype has more to do with who Taylor works for — Sean McVay. There is potential Taylor could also become the offensive coordinator for one of the two guys listed above if they land the head coaching gig. The thought amongst some is, if Elway doesn’t go with Taylor now, he’ll miss out on him and we’ll see Taylor become the next McVay.

It says something that there was a tie in our staff poll. For me, it was Pagano followed by Flores. As with Taylor, I wonder if Pagano could be the defensive coordinator for either Fangio or Munchak. In terms of Flores Shaquil Barrett Color Rush Jersey , Broncos Country wants no part in another New England Patriots coordinator.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Pick whichever saying you want, they all apply, here. I was about to take a hiatus from writing for the next few weeks, as I’m getting ready to head up to the West Coast for a wedding (which I am the groom), but this coaching staff forced my hand. I had to come back from vacation for a quick Pete Baron-style rant. While I can’t do it quite like Pete can, I’ll give it my best shot.Coming out of Sunday’s abysmal game, one of the main storylines, (you know, aside from the inept passing game and the secondary’s inability to cover the other team’s only receiving threat) were the three offsides or “neutral zone infraction” penalties incurred by Von Miller Brian Dawkins Jersey , all in quick succession within the first half.Head coach Vance Joseph had some harsh words after the game on the topic:While I appreciate where Joseph is coming from, I would beg to differ. Yes you do do it, and yes you can do it. Von Miller can.Miller has literally made a living off of guessing/predicting the snap count his entire career. You don’t change that now because he guessed wrong a few times and got a couple of five-yard penalties.Has Vance Joseph watched the AFC Championship game in 2015 against the Patriots where Demarcus Ware and Von Miller terrorized Tom Brady en route to one of the sweetest Broncos victories ever? Want to know how they did it?Ware and Miller anticipated the snap count and played off of the center’s movements to get after the quarterback even faster.Are there a few offside penalties as a result of this style of play? Sure. But if it gets results, who cares. Miller doesn’t.Let me translate that for you. Shooters shoot. Want to know who has led the league in offsides penalties over the last three years? Von Miller. Also want to know who is one of the best pass rushers of all-time? Von Miller.If Miller let an offsides penalty keep him from being aggressive, he wouldn’t be leading all defenders since 2011 with 97 freaking sacks.Besides, a quick look at the others joining Von Miller at the top of the offsides list every year is a “who’s who” of pass rushers - including Melvin Ingram, Jadaveon Clowney, Chandler Jones and Myles Garrett. I wonder if their coaches publicly call them out for getting offsides penalties too?Joseph’s message on Sunday should have been to keep rushing, keep shooting and eventually he would get home. It shouldn’t have been benching his best defender to make a statement and then publicly calling No. 58 out after the game for trying a little too hard to make a play to make up for the inevitable challenge screw-ups Joseph would make. Did I just write that out loud?Never change, Von. You’ll still be kicking ass and taking names in the orange and blue next year, which is more than we can say for this coaching staff.
