FFS. This is so disappointing. We had a chance to get a Coach that:
A) Has won a Superbowl and has been a very successful HEAD COACH. K1 would have to respect his accomplishments.
B) Has a system that allowed 6'0" Drew Brees to be wildly successful, which would be a great motivator for K1.
C) Demands discipline and hard work and accountability
D) Has ties to other coaches and can put together a great staff.
E) Would have the credibility to tell MB if Kyler is going to be the Franchise QB or if they should move on.
F) Would not stand for K1 coming off the field barking at him.
Now we will most likely get some 1st time coach that will flame out in 2 years, K1 will still be here underachieving but just good enough to keep getting extended, and the cycle continues.
I don't think the Broncos gave up that much. If he is as much of a difference maker as everyone is saying, that's worth a late 1st and 2nd. I wouldn't give our first this year, but there had to be other options (even a player) to throw in to make this happen.
We should have kept Keim around long enough to broker this trade and then send him packing.
