Consider what Gibbs, the man they call "The Doctor," has done. Almost without exception, linemen were better as Broncos under Gibbs than they were before or after. Jones spent nine years with the Browns and Ravens, but his only Pro Bowl appearance came under Gibbs. The Ravens saw Harry Swayne's production with the Broncos and signed him to a rich free-agent deal. The Seahawks did the same with Brian Habib. Neither was as productive for his new team as was his replacement for the Broncos. Gibbs helped seventh-round draft choice Tom Nalen become arguably the premier center in the NFL.

Gibbs took Matt Lepsis, who was undrafted, and made him into a very effective right tackle. He made a premier guard out of the undersized Neil, whom one offensive line coach said would be hard-pressed to start in any other system. He found a way to get solid production out of Schlereth, a player who had undergone numerous surgeries (the count is 29).

"What he's done is make them better as a group than as individuals," Chargers defensive coordinator Joe Pascale says.

Gibbs, 59, crafted great offensive lines mostly with players other teams had no use for. Unlike just about every other coach, Gibbs didn't lobby to have his team select players for him in the high rounds. He preferred the leftovers, players who have something to prove. Gibbs tore these players down further, and then built them up.

"Alex Gibbs is an absolute wild man, a tyrant, a fiery little guy," Bunting says with a smile. "And he's a good friend. His system is like Tiger Woods' golf game - it's all about repetition, repetition, repetition, doing the same thing, over and over and over again. You don't have a lot of different runs. But you get very good at the ones you do have. You use the backs for pass protection. We were at Kansas City when I saw how good Marcus Allen became at pass protection. Very seldom did we see our quarterbacks get hurt."

Gibbs took his ideas from Kansas City to Denver in 1995 and began developing outstanding offensive lines using smaller, quicker, more agile players than was the NFL norm. Those linemen were technicians, dancing laterally along the line of scrimmage and taking their opponents in the direction the opponent dictates. Their quickness allowed them to attack their opponents off the ball, get to the second level where linebackers roam and clean up loose ends downfield. Tailbacks spent little time running parallel to the line of scrimmage; the worst you can do, in theory, is no gain. One of the bread-and-butter runs is the cutback: the tailback presses the line, presses, presses, the play evolving like a stretch play or outside zone play; then he cuts back against the grain.

Morgan Keegan

"They knock out one yard, two yards, three yards, then, crack, bang, 60 yards," Chiefs Coach Dick Vermeil once said of the Broncos' run

Throw in a RB addition (i.e. Mendehall, free agent,etc) and that kind of combo upgrade could do WONDERS for this football team.


GOOD STUFF BTW!

I don't have powerpoint yet....

I have never been to this site so not sure what it is, but as soon as i find powerpoint to download, I will try to post anything that might be good

Wolf, you can always download OpenOffice (http://www.openoffice.org). It is a free office suite and it should do the job for you.

*******************************
As was reported earlier, that's the physical profile to look for in OLineman that
the Texans retain from the current roster and seek in the Draft and FA to add
to that roster.
Good find Wolfy !

Mendenhall

Why waste the first-round pick when you can get a Terrell Davis in the
6th round ?

Why waste the first-round pick when you can get a Terrell Davis in the
6th round ?There is no gaurentee that you can find a Terrell Davis to me I think teams get lucky in situations such as that, so I would rather go with a guy that we definately know is a superior talent that gives us a clear advantage instead getting lucky in the 6th & 7th round.

I just have issues with Mendenhall's overall game (blocking, receiving etc..) He's shown to be a great runner but the other stuff looks as if he can't take it to the next level.

Really? How do you figure that when he is being touted as the whole package? Besides, most kids coming out of college need help in the blocking department and we have the right coaching staff in place to teach that. It doesnt matter anyway we are not going to get the opportunity to draft him because all the guys that we all want are going to end up getting drafted before we select at 18.
