    Well its no shocker here. It seems we are in talks with the Denver OC. Im sure the talks are just a formality. He probably was the OC in waiting behind shanahan.

    Not saying I dont want him here, I just think there are better OC's out there.

    Actually it's no surprise really that he's going to be interviewed and likely the next OC here. At least in name, because I doubt Kubiak lets go of the reins of play calling.

    What is a bit of a surprise is that Kubiak managed to get the interview first instead of Shannahan. If he does get the job I wonder what the chances are that Gibbs goes to D.C.

    Didn't know they're best friends. I guess that's kinda cool if they wind up coaching together

    I don't have a problem with it.

    If Kubiak's gonna run his system, he may as well get his own guys to run it.

    Dennison will be a good hire.

    He understands Kubes system and is a ZBS OL coach.

    Exactly...he'll be the OC Monday. Now I wonder what kind of relationship he has with Marshall. I'm not saying I would give up a first rounder for him becuase WR is not a weekness/need, but how rediculous would it be to have AJ and Marshall for a defense to try and cover.

    What other OCs are you thinking about? I think Rick Dennison is exactly who we need.

    That would be awesome if he could help bring us Marshall. I would not give up a 1st round pick, but would a second (say, next year's second and Andre Davis?).

    I don't want Marshall yes, he is outstanding but does not know how to deal his problems and he's a headcase him and AJ might cause both lockeroom and coverage problems.

    I would take Marshall way before TO. Its seems like there is a ton of people on here that would want TO, how would Marshall possibly be worse?

    Marshall is worth more than a second rounder. I'm pretty sure we would have to give up 1st rounder.

    Dennison also went to Colorado State... He's has both the required pedigrees!

    Don't forget that Denver HAS to get rid of him. They are not in a very strong position for this deal. It also hurts them that Marshall is considered a "head case" so not as many teams will be interested. There might not be many better deals out there then Davis and a 2nd..then again maybe there is.

    He's not the Denver OC, he's their O-Line coach. Who else do you think is better out there that knows the offense and won't install a totally different system?

    He's almost overqualified.

    Hopefully it works out similar to the last assistant Kubiak wanted to hire but wasn't able to until a later date (Bush). Looking at his resume 2008 was very impressive.

    "Featuring two tackles in their first-year as starters, Dennison's offensive line was one of the league's most productive units in 2008. Denver's 12 sacks allowed were a franchise record and tied for the NFL lead, and its 6,333 yards of offense ranked second in club history for a single season as well as in the league for the year. Despite being forced to place seven running backs on injured reserve, Dennison's group of linemen also helped the club rank third in the league in yards per rush (4.8)."

    He was my 2nd choice behind Munchak when the list came out and hes probably a better fit. I won't be terribly disappointed if elder Gibbs decides to hang em up or depart to Washington now.

    I wouldn't turn my nose up at Marshall if he passed the requisite interviews with all the Texans staff and they determined he wasn't the monster he looks like. I don't know if that would actually happen though because he just might be all the trouble he appears to be.

    I hope the Broncos let go of Peyton Hillis.

    A second and fourth and Davis then ;).

    Denver has to get rid of Marshall anyway. I'm sure there is some team that would give up their first rounder though. I wouldn't, and that's because of Marshall's attitude. Still wouldn't mind him (or Terrell Owens) on the Texans (at the right price).

    He was Kubes replacement at OC when Kubes left in '06. Then he was demoted back to Oline coach when McD came in becUase McD wanted to install his own system but retain the ZBS.


    He is the best option for this team. If anyone says otherwise then they don't know what this team needs at the position.
