Report: Brian Flores 'long shot' to become next Broncos coach
Not hard to believe.
Their last HC hire was an unspectactular defensive coordinator. Why would they hire another?
Flores is a better leader.
Next coach there is clearly cannon fodder, and will continue to be, until the Broncos either luck into a QB again, or Elway leaves.
My guess Broncos are all in on Nick Foles.
Or Joe Flacco. Wouldn't be a terrible landing spot for him, assuming Manny Sanders comes back.
Flacco im going to say Dolphind
That would be interesting. Go from Ryan Tannehill to Joe Flacco and save money in the process.
I never knew that was even something that would be likely.
And the most useless thread created on this day goes to...
Look the reality is a lot of guys are getting “interviews” only because of the Rooney rule...the Broncos never had any intention of hiring Flores....
So our defacto D coordinator possibly taking a job with a hated rival has no value at all?
Agree to disagree
IMO Brian Flores is a longshot period for a HC in the NFL, and not sure how anyone could hire him based on a small body of evidence, in a year or two more likely..
Who's more qualified...a coach who has been a DC for 10 years for a mediocre coach and a run of the mill org or a coach who has spent 13 years operating in mutiple roles in scouting, front office, offense, ST and a sucesssful DC while being mentored by the GOAT of coaches for the best organization in football?
Do not disagree, however if I were an owner would probably prefer someone with more of a body of work and more on the field evidence than Flores can produce currently. Look at the continual bashing in Detroit by the press about Matt Patricia, they are treating him like someone who has no idea of what he is doing. We can see the culture he is trying to create, the Detroit press is more intent on bashing him than trying to understand where he is going.
If he comes up with very creative defensive game plans that are executed well against teams in the tournament, that sentiment may change quickly.. difficult to determine if he is the DC or the Defensive Play Caller under the tutelage of BB....
As evidenced by this board and sportstalk, fans are quick to jump on any bandwagon and follow any conspiracy theory, I know media and sports talk do not matter but when you are in a sea of "nattering nabobs of negativity" and you are scrutinized for everything you do, it makes the job harder...
Flores should stay with Pats for a couple more years.
I compare Anthony Lynn and Vaughn Joseph on the sidelines. Lynn looks engaged and fierce. Joseph looks perplexed. Flores is more Lynn than Joseph.
I see what you are saying.
Fat Matt is digging his own grave in DET. He is not media-savvy at all. Hes a no BS kinda guy and that is not helping him. BB isn't either but he can get away with it.
Guys like Andy Reid, John Harbaugh and a handful of others were hired as HCs but were not OC or DC and went on to be successful. It can happen.
I have no idea if Flores can be successful or not. So many factors. As you know I don't think one year as a DC when he has all this other experience makes him a lesser candidate than a current hot coordinator.
