I would like to give John Elway a shout out and a thank you here but first I wanted to speculate a bit on who would be the right guy for the head coaching position and why so just hear me out.
It sounds really good and it looks really good on paper Kyle Shanahan and Bobby Turner come in here and install the zone blocking scheme with all the angle blocks. Something that the Kubiak regime should've done.
We all believe that with Kyle Shanahan possibly coming in here would keep Wade Phillips and this defensive staff intact which it might. But let me ask how many of our defensive coaches are going to want to take orders from little Shanahan?
Not only that but does he have the right personality to control some very big personalities and egos on this defense especially without Demarcus ware if he decides not to return?
This defense imposed their will upon the Denver Broncos locker room. Now we don't know what happened behind the scenes but with guys like TJ Ward, Aqib Talib and Von Miller, I'm not sure Kyle Shanahan a first-year head coach can control this locker room. Why would they listen to him?
I believe we need a strong willed extremely strong leader to control this team, an extremely strong leader that will hire a great offensive Coordinator to install his system and run his scheme without any interference.
That guy I believe could be a 47-year-old Vance Joseph. He is somewhat older than Kyle Shanahan and has the experience just as Kyle does but his age might just be the difference here. He was part of a championship Colorado buffalo team and can lead in an authoritative way to reach this young team.
I like the Kyle Shanahan scenario but I'm not sure he's right at the moment I think that's Joseph would come in and this defense wouldn't miss a beat.
I believe Vance would put the right offensive Coordinator in place to run this offense.
Now would this offense be dominant? I'm not sure but if you got somebody like Mike McCoy or Norv Turner I believe it would be.
However we don't need them to be dominant, we just need them to be above average and our defense will take care of the rest.
Right now in Denver and all over social media all Bronco fans are calling for Kyle Shanahan. Hopefully it doesn't influence the team any or detour Vance Joseph! Elway knows best and I am very great ful for that and I believe he will make the right choice for the right reasons even if the fan base doesn't understand!
Another thing I just want to send kudos to John Elway for putting the Broncos first before his friend.
We don't know what actually went down behind the scenes but if the rumors are true and Elway requested that Kubiak fire some of his friends but he just did not have the heart to do so, he decided to step down and so it kind of tells you who's more dedicated to the team.
Not to discredit Gary Kubiak but if Kubiak did put fRick Denison and Clancy Barone before the team will then we are very fortunate that he decided to retire. John Elway is for the Denver Broncos not the Gary Kubiak's and by the Gary Kubiaks I mean rick Denison, Clancy Barone and whoever else that needed to go.
