    I know. I want him to be able to start assembling a staff ASAP.

    But in a way, (in my best Cartman voice) how sweet would it be for the Broncos to win the Super Bowl. Then Gary would have participated in 7 Super Bowls and won 4. That would be great. I just hope he has been assembling a staff in his "spare" time!

    Yeah, but him assembling a staff in his "spare" time might be the reason they get beat! :)

    I know I will be rooting for the Broncos. I want Kubiak in here too.. but I think it would be great for him if he could leave the Broncos with a superbowl win.. not to mention how great it would be to see the Broncos beat out New England and Indi to go to the superbowl :).

    You cant ask for much more than that.. getting a new head coach that just won the superbowl with his past team.

    And I dont think it will KILL us to wait a couple more weeks.. I dont think the serious coach hiring around the league will happen until after the superbowl.

    If they had any other opponent, I would want the Broncos to lose too. I just can't want New England to win anything.

    What about Jerry Gray? He resigned from the chargers. Has anyone heard reports of him "sidestepping" and becoming OUR defensive cord. under kubiak?

    Jerry Gray is with the Bills. He is currently still with the Bills.

    Still has visit a with the Lions, but is not above a lateral move to be DC in Houston.

    This is the main coach I am concerned with, the DC. I know Kubiak will take care of the offense, no matter the coordinator. If Jerry fits the mold of a DC that he wants, then great. I just want the DC to be Kubes' hire, not anyone else's. It has been mentioned that Gray is the DC with the Bills. Since Mularkey resigned, I don't know what his status is at the current time.

    The only thing that concerns me about Gray is how Buffalo's defense fell so far this year. They were only two spots ahead of us in Total Defense. Why did they fall so far? Did anyone follow the Bills closely this year? In 2004, they were the number 2 defense in the entire NFL. They were the number 8 defense in points allowed. I know they have talent. What kind of injuries did they have?

    Not that bad of an article. Relatively well written.

    Gray is a good coach, but his defenses tend to play inconsistent on a regular basis. If you look at 2004 his best season as a DC at the beginning of the year the team was drastically underperforming. This year he had the same talent, maybe a little older, but with the injury to takeo spikes the defense just crumbled.

    Agree with that assessment. It also must be said that the Bills offense did not do the defense any favors this year.

    Sounds good for Kubiak. Is Gray the lead guy for the DC job? Who are the other canidates?

    Starting today or Sunday they will have transcripts of all of the Broncos they have interviewed about the guy to show how well he is respected. McClain was on last night and said since they can't have them all in the paper they would put them online to read.

    Patience? Patience is so easy to preach, but when it comes time to practice it . . . it's the NFL, remember? The fans want to win NOW!

    When they go 5-11 next season, which is a reasonable expectation after going 2-14, will you still be excited about having Kubiak as the HC?

    I doubt it.
