    Denver East should do the same.

    :thinking: Is this the quickest a coach has ruined a franchise?

    Noooo, wish they would have held onto him for another season. Oh well, thanks Josh for helping out the Raiders in your short time in Denver...you will be missed. :cry2:

    Talk about epically ruining a franchise. Traded their best players away and got nothing. Now the next coach gets to pleasure of figuring out what the heck to do with Tebow.

    Damn, it was probably that Quinn Hillis trade that did it, or the Spygate deal. Or maybe trading Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler.

    That's a good point.

    McDaniels seemed to be the only one in the NFL that was willing to take him that high...

    Leading candidate to replace him for the talking heads - Gary Kubiak.

    Josh McDaniels is an epic failure. I bet he's really good at Madden though.

    McDaniels traded Jay Cutler for Kyle Orton and a couple of draft picks. Doesn't sound bad, right? Well, he used one of his first rounders to trade up in order to draft Alphonso Smith, who was traded to Detroit for their current tight end, Dan Gronkowski. Tim Tebow has as much playing time as Steve Slaton right now.

    He then traded a sixth round draft pick, a conditional pick in 2012, and Peyton Hillis, an all-pro RB, for Brady Quinn, who is currently a third string QB.

    He also traded away Tony Scheffler, a great pass-catching TE that is comparable to Owen Daniels a couple years ago.

    I could go on...

    Would be awesome if they offered Kubiak the job (and he took it) that way McNair doesn't have to waver on the decision on whether to keep him or not.

    Man, that Spread Offense is awesome in the NFL ain't it Josh? (without Brady anyhow). Totally worth blowing your team up for.

    I can't say I'm surprised after all the Broncos are 3-9 after going 8-8 the season before, although two seasons is not enough time to evaluate his performance IMO. Given the scandals and all, it was probably time to let him go.

    Makes me wonder why we're holding on to Gary Kubiak after his back to back 8-8 performances. :thinking:
