    Fan base? He saw who I voted for and figured we need to hire one of those guys....I voted for multiple candidates

    Only reason he looked at rest was because I had multiple options for him so he checked out what the rest of the fan base wanted.

    I am watching some of the Hackett clips or videos of him chattering constantly on the field. His (IMO) over the top positivity and joking around would get on my nerves pretty quick. Heard his Star Wars comments from an interview. Just seems trivial and too accommodating to please. IMO From all I have seen he is respected and has great relationships with his players.

    This is definitely a “ me thing”. I am almost 60yrs old and my experiences with coaches was more the Drill Instructor, shake me by the face mask and cuss me out for a mistake. I thrived in that culture. I was willing to sacrifice, work and “run through a a wall” for them. I realize it is old school thought and wouldn’t work with today’s sensibilities and young men.

    I understand that Hackett and the relationships he has with his players and staff is based on his personality as much as the Xs and Os and the reason he was hired. That being said, I hope Hackett is the HC needed to change the culture of the Broncos. He was not hired to relate to an old fan like me. Just get the kids ready to play every week.
    I thought it was interesting, in the "behind the scenes" video, that one of the team members emphasized the players position that they wanted accountability. It was presented emphatically.

    This implies the players may have been as frustrated by Fangio's lack of accountability as the fans have been. Maybe even frustrated with the front office's lack, as well. I hope that message was well received by Paton and communicated to Hackett.

    I get what you're saying, and I agree with you. But we need a change and hopefully this will be the change that works.

    (And by the way you're not that old)

    Hopefully we will show Improvement immediately, and build on whatever good stuff we have going.

    They won't admit it. But it's bc of rodgers.

    The first ten options, from Mayo to Callahan, are actually on Broncos GM George Paton's current interview list. The bottom three before "other" are longshots but show up in betting sites —yes, even Peyton Manning!

    4081 votes total

    They are also doing individual profiles of candidates including interviews with writers of the other teams' blogs at SBNATION and there's yes/no polls on each page. Some candidates have multiple articles with separate polls in each one and separate results so it's kind of chaotic. But here's a few of those (linked back to those pages if anyone here wants to read or vote):

    Do you want the Broncos to hire Jerod Mayo as their Head Coach?
    • 23% Yes (250 votes)
    • 77% No (842 votes)
    1092 votes total

    Do you want Nathaniel Hackett to be the Broncos Head Coach?
    • 90% Yes (1263 votes)
    • 10% No (147 votes)
    1410 votes total

    Do you want the Broncos to hire Eric Bieniemy to be their Head Coach?
    • 52% Yes (1266 votes)
    • 48% No (1156 votes)
    2422 votes total

    Do you want the Broncos to hire Dan Quinn to be their next Head Coach?
    • 49% Yes (1001 votes)
    • 51% No (1031 votes)
    2032 votes total

    Do you want the Broncos to hire Kellen Moore to be their Head Coach?
    • 57% Yes (1364 votes)
    • 43% No (1049 votes)
    2413 votes total

    Would you like it if the Broncos hired Brian Callahan as their next head coach?
    • 56% Yes (658 votes)
    • 44% No (509 votes)
    1167 votes total
    Looks to me like the greater Broncos community doesn't mind the hire.

    Tyrone Matthieu was out. I’m sure a lot of that had to do with Spag’s defense looking the way it did last night. There’s a reason the Bills were attacking the deep middle of the field. Even the best coordinators look bad when their best players leave a game early…
