    sounds good. alot of coaches get in over their head being coordinators and head coaches when they are betteer suited for having a lesser positon.

    one example i think Mike Martz is an amazing offensive coordinator, but i wouldn't want him as a head coach.

    Excellent. Now all we need are TE's that make a difference.

    True that. I commented on another thread that it looks like Kubes is loading up on coaching talent that has a LOT of TE and LB experience. Perhaps he has already identified a couple of possible problem areas. :rolleyes:

    I think Kubiak will install a lot of things that we haven't seen in four years. TE as an offensive weapon being one of them. I'm stoked to get a new system in that will have some diversity to it. :redtowel: FINALLY!

    I wonder if Pope, Lewis, Klopfenstenfenstein, or Davis is in our future.

    So now we know Pariani will be TE Coach. Where do we stand on the OC & DC. Is DC basically between Bates/Gray now? And OC, I think Dennison was the last name I heard. Is this right?

    Not sure about the DC thing, but now that Himmerdinger has been released by the NYJ, he is the most likely candidate for the OC job in Denver. If that happens, Denver MIGHT be more inclined to let Dinnison go as I think he was the "Plan B" option at OC if Himmerdinger wasn't able to come to Denver. I suspect we will have to give up a late round pick though.

    I want very little to do with these underachieving coaches like capers.

    He can have a small role on our team, and since we dont even have a capable TE yet, he can have that role.

    DC and OC are MAJOR concerns for me. He seems to be bringing in guys who have previous ties to him only. We need the best at those two vacant spots that we can find.

    Yes, we are getting a tight end coach. Unfortunatly he will go down with an injury to his clip board hand during the first game of the preseason.

    :ok:

    Given how much Carr liked to throw to the TE his first couple of years, this could be an exceedingly good hire: 1. a TE coach who is really experienced coaching TE's (S.F. and Denver); 2. someone who has a good relationship with Kubiak and understands the way he likes to do things.

    I thought that this info was interesting: "He is one of only 15 NFL coaches ever to win a World Championship with two different organizations, and one of just nine ever to win a title with a team from each conference. "

    Here's a good article where Pariani talks about his philosophy with TEs:

    Ok, first I got to say I don't like tight ends for the most part. So, explain why we need a coach for tight ends? To me that is like have a coach for left tackles. Can't the receivers coach or O line coach handle? Just asking.
