Kubiak had to wait a year, but he finally has his guy:

Its always good to get a good experienced coach like Frank Bush on your team :marionaner:

I think he's really gonna help Demeco hit that next level!!!

should be an assist to Kubiak/Smith & Smith before FA & the draft, at least I'm sure he's been around enough to share some insight on players & assess their skill sets defensively, great addition to the team :elmo:

Adrian Wilson is one of the top safeties in the NFC.

i like the hire i just wonder when do we get to the point where we have too many chiefs and not enough indians in the coaching ranks

Interesting way they named his position.

Guessing that on game day Smith is in the booth and Bush is on the sidelines?

The Cards had a good LB corps, according to some Cards fans I know. I look forward to seeing Bush work with the defense.

Hey Chick, from what I heard from your good buddy John McClain, Richard smith will still be in control of the defense and you are right about him calling the defense. He will be calling the defesive plays from the booth.

How about that? We ended up with both Super Mario and Bush on the same team...:rolleyes:

Seriously though, good hire...:yes:

I'm a big believer in head coaches hiring the guys that they think they need. Good that he's on board.

By the same token, I'm not a big believer in owners hiring assistants (which seems more widespread lately.)

You'd think with Smith's firey attitude they would want him down on the field with the players?

Well, I'm not too sure why Kubes wanted this guy so much, but I'm glad he got him!

This might be a great thing (Having Smith in the booth).

He possibly was too heavy on the rah-rah-rah! motivational stuff on the sidelines, and now he gets to be in the booth where he can see the field from above, see what needs to be done, and make the appropriate adjustments and calls down to the sidelines.

Bush can then be the tweaker. He can pull guys aside and teach more fundamentals on the sideline in between possessions, getting them ready.

Having those two guys collaborating is going to be a good thing, IMO.

I like the move.

We finally got a Bush on our team, so get off our back ESPN!!!!

I think this is a great move on many levels.
If Rich Smith's defence starts to decline, I can see Bush taking over...let's hope that doesn't happen.

yeah it was posted last nightI really like this move. Bush has impressed me since he was a player giving his all. I hated it when his career as a player was cut short. I am pumped and hope March and April each add to my excitement.

Good Move!

Loved Bush as a player, scout and coach.

These young guys are getting a good deal by coming here. I can comfortably say we have a good coaching staff.

Our defense is going to be a bad motha next season. If we get rid of Carr our offense will be above average next season as well.

They've worked together before. There isn't a either or with these two. Both
have a common thread in that after the Oilers, both touched base with the Broncos. Bush is an astude evaluator of tallent. He is an excellent teacher and motivator. He has brought supieor tallent and molded it into a top three linebacker corps before.

Smith is a special teams over-acheiver wizzard. A lot of you in da Nile over the clubs overall tallent, have underestimated what Smith brings to the table. They both can coach a 3-4 or 4-3. The worry shouldn't be which guy is better. Who is on the feild, who is not. The greater worry is which guy we will lose first. I smell a Demeeco/tallent evaluator thread With Frank Bush. I see a motivator/specail teams guy with Smith. Smith will call the plays. Bush will get them ready to lock and load. Together they should mold the d into a top ten unit. I dunno and I ain't in the loop. JMHO.

Kubes has got the postseason mojo working. He now has his #1 and #2 choices for DC on his staff. If they work well together, this could be "the turning point".

Kinda nice connection between Mario and Coach Bush as they both went to NC State.

Quality coaching starters with excellent backups. Now on to free agency and draft to do the same with players.

Although there is potentially more choke team karma, I like the hiring of Bush.

i like the hire i just wonder when do we get to the point where we have too many chiefs and not enough indians in the coaching ranks

I thought about that, too, but I have to give Kubiak the benefit of the doubt. I think he's a sharp coach, so it'll be interesting to see how all these moves develop over time.

Interesting way they named his position.

Guessing that on game day Smith is in the booth and Bush is on the sidelines?

I was thinking about the same thing, and it's a good idea, IMO. A coordinator in the booth needs eyes and ears on the sideline, and Bush/Smith apparently have a great working relationship. Maybe FB will reel RS in a little bit, especially his tendency to call plays from an emotional state-of-mind.
