    Are you implying that VY won't be drafted, but rather picked up as a coach and then made assistant head coach/player? I kid, I kid. :cool:

    Kubiak not taking Greg Davis is a good thing. I can't believe I applauded a non action.

    That is good and bad... energetic, enthusiastic, open to new things... no experience, maybe too risky

    I like the idea of a young coaching staff.

    I feel that a young coaching staff is going to be more open minded to changes and player request/suggestions than a veteran coach who is too prideful of his ways.

    i like that he is not getting the top guys because if they do turn around the defense then after next year they might take off somewhere for a head coaching job. this way they will probably stay for a few years and then leave for a HC job some where, but to leave after one year would be a bad deal for coach K.

    I'd rather have guys that he is comfortable working with than big names that will leave after a season or two for better jobs.

    I like the idea of younger coaches because it's easier to talk to people that are closer to your age. The younger coaches no "more of what the players are going though" and they have "been there" more recently than the older coaches. Not to take anything away from the older coaches, but I mean, I think you get along better with people closer to your own age. That's just me. JM:twocents:

    Big risk in my book. The minute it hits the fan you might get a few of the Vets talking about how they know more about what they are doing than the kids teaching them. Relating to the players and getting their respect are two different things.

    I have seen staffs with more experience at the iHop. Young guys want a leader, not someone that they can talk to about Half Life 2.

    Two interesting facts about the Denver Broncos and Mike Shanahan:

    1. No coach has more wins since '95 when he took over the team.
    2. Since '00, they're the only team in the NFL who have neither had a losing record nor a Top 10 pick in the draft.

    Now take a look at the links below. Pay special attention to names like Dennison, Heimderdinger, and Turner since they've been up for or held head coaching and/or coordinator positions in the past. They're all well-respected throughout the league, and they all have one thing in common: all began their NFL coaching career in '95 under Mike Shanahan with the exception of Kubiak who had a whopping one-year stint as a QB coach. Brewster's the other big name, and he didn't land his first NFL job until '02.

    Karl Dorrell is another coach given his first NFL stint by Shanny back in '00.

    Other notable hires by Shanahan with little NFL experience were Greg Robinson and Brian Pariani.

    It appears that Kubiak is following his mentor's lead, and he deserves a chance to put his product--players and staff alike--on the field before getting lambasted.

    Kubiak getting lambasted. Interesting choice of words. :hmmm:
     
  20. I'm going to say it right here and now, if Capers had stayed he would have a better record next season than Kubiak. If Capers could go from 7-9 to 2-14, he probably could have got them back to 7-9 again. That being said, people need to be patient with Kubiak because he gets a free pass this 1st season. If Shanahan gave young coaches and coordinators a chance and it worked, then maybe Kubiaks selections should be given a little slack.
