    I'd rather have Kyle over Mike personally.

    But that's just me. :thinking:

    If we don't go 10-6 this season, I hope we do find a new coach. 4 years is long enough to get us that far in my opinion.

    But man o man, I hear a lot of jokes coming here shortly. Lol! :jogger:

    We have to at least see how the Texans do this season under Kubiak. He might get them into the post season to like a 12-4 record. You never know. He needs at least one more season to see where he can take this team.

    Well he is the only one of those three whose an employed NFL head coach at the moment for starters. Mike senior was fired because he was supposedly out of touch with today's NFL players. If there's one thing we can say about Kubiak for sure its that his players are behind him and support him fully and would go to bat for him. You can't say that about half the league's head coaches.

    I think Kyle is too young for it at this point but he's getting there faster than I thought possible. I look forward to seeing him call the plays this year, although all his calls will be under the Kubiak microscope so Kyle shouldn't get full credit if we improve in the red zone and cut down on turnovers this year. Selfishly, I would like him as the OC for as long as possible and he could be gone as soon as next offseason.

    I voted no thanks. I like the way Kubiak and Smith work together. Besides, the bolded part of your statement is, in my opinion, just not true.

    IMO I think unless Gary Kubiak visibly losses the team and/or they spiral into a 4-5 win season he'll be here next year better or worse.

    He's got the staff he wants and he's got some good pieces in place to make a playoff run this year.

    Don't care where Shanahan lands, long as he doesn't replace Del Rio in Jax.

    I've said it before, I don't think Kubiak gets fired unless the team melts down. And I think this is the best team we've ever fielded.

    might I ask why? why? we are talking about a HC who has won 2 Super Bowls and led teams to the playoffs. Gary has done ZILCH as a head coach.

    I like Gary but blind homerism like this makes me question some of our fans' expectations, grasp on reality, and objectivity.

    I support my team but to act like Gary is a better and more qualified HC than Shanahan is ridiculous. I hope you are an Aggie because that is about the only scenario I could see someone favoring Kubiak over Daddy Shanny.

    Well, while Shanahan is a proven coach, on the flip side one can argue he didn't do crap after Kubiak left his staff (not to mention Elway), infact that's when his success and playoff appearances fell off and ultimately he ended up getting fired.

    Lets be honest here. What exactly did Mike Shanahan accomplish after John Elway retired?

    Elway retired after the 1998 season and Shanahan was fired after the 2008 season.

    Here is is record over that 10 year period:
    99: 6-10, miss playoffs
    00: 11-5, lose to Baltimore in AFC wildcard
    01: 8-8, miss playoffs
    02: 9-7, miss playoffs
    03: 10-6, lose to Colts in AFC wildcard
    04:10-6, lose to Colts in AFC wildcard
    05: 13-3, lose to Steelers in AFC Championship
    06: 9-7, miss playoffs
    07: 7-9, miss playoffs
    08: 8-8, miss playoffs

    So, in 10 years he made the playoffs 4 times and went out of the first round 3 times. And you know who left the Broncos after the 2005 season...

    You can make the case that for the early part of the decade, there was little real competition in the AFC West. While the Raiders did make 1 superbowl, before and after that they were pretty much door mats. The Chiefs have been basically one dimensional for most of the decade. While San Diego has gotten better, it was only after 2004 that they began to step up. Even so, all Denver had to worry about was SD.

    In contrast all Htown has had to contend with is a tough Indianapolis team and either a tough Jax or Tennessee. Htown has never been the second best team in the division: only 3rd or 4th.

    While it is great to get to the playoffs, Shanahan gets far too much dap for someone who really benefited from one of the best QBs in history, a stout D, and an amazing Offensive Coordinator. He is one of the most overrated coaches in history.

    Simply because Mike Shanahan has better credentials is no reason to assume he'd be better for this team today. The guy won two superbowls almost 15 years ago with John Elway as his QB, Kubes as OC, and Alex Gibb as OL coach. If this team fails under Kubiak, I don't think Shanahan is the right voice to repair it. He certainly didn't prove to be able to fix an ailing defense in Denver the past 5 seasons. Basically, he would come in here and preach nearly identical philosophies to a group of guys that would have heard it and experienced it fail for 4 years. I just don't see how that dynamic would be an answer to another mediocre or poor season.

    Everybody just sees a name and goes goo goo. Now if we struggle and Cowher becomes available, I'll take that guy.
