Broncos finish staff with former Texans coordinator

Ri. Smith

The 2010 Denver Broncos coaching staff is complete.

Following the hiring of Dennis Allen as the team’s defensive coordinator, the team announced Tuesday they’ve hired former Texans defensive coordinator Richard Smith as linebackers coach and former Rams/Panthers assistant coach Ron Milus to coach the secondary.

If we wanted to be cynical smartasses, we could point out that the Broncos coaching staff will now be an excellent mix of the two worst teams in 2010 (Panthers, Broncos) and the unstoppable Texans and Rams defenses from 2008.

But we’re not cynical.

    But we’re not cynical. -GR

    Why stop there? Smith and Milus were both on Shanny’s staff at one time.

    You are overdue on some Broncos bashing though. The last few reports ya’ll have penned have been way too sterile.

    Nice. Maybe a lockout or strike is actually the best thing for the current Broncos in the short term?

    You don’t have to be Nostradamus to figure out the Broncos future! :(

    There’s a fine line of “wanting to be cynical smart asses” & your true talent of actually BEING cynical smart asses when it comes to your love of the Broncos. Last time I checked, these coaches aren’t actually scheduled to put on the pads and play defense.

    “It was lucky, really”, said head honcho John Elway, “I was just standing there waiting for the stoplight to change, and this handwritten ad on a signpost caught my eye.”.

    I have an idea, Broncos.

    Since you were a 4-3 defense in 2008 and changed to a 3-4 defense in 2009-10, why don’t you switch back to a 4-3 defense? Now you can let go the 3-4 players and try to get back all of the 4-3 players you let go 2 years ago.

    I agree with half of that……….but I would take the smart off the front of that description to be most accurate for you, Gregg.

    It doesn’t get any better as a Raider fan to see the Donkeys in disarray, while being led by horse face himself.

    ron milus also coached the broncos secondary in 2000 when they were second in the league with 27 interceptions.

    if you wanted to do a solid job of reporting, you could’ve mentioned a positive like that.

    but you’re not a cynical smartass?

    Speaking of being cynical smartasses, is that photag of Smith a mug shot? C’mon PFT, throw up another glamour shot of Al Davis…

    A Raider fan talking about disarray after firing their coach after their best season in years. Hi-effing-larious.

    No, ACTUALLY, the Broncos finally have stability and are in the right direction.

    Why do all these assistant coach pictures look like mug shots

    At this moment, I’m kind of encouraged as a fan of the Broncos. While the Panthers and the Broncos were the two worst teams in the league last year, they’re keeping coaches from the stronger parts of the teams. On top of that, the defenses are now coached by guys who may not have had the most talented rosters, but still managed to have opportunistic defenses, and really, that may be as good as the Broncos D gets next year.
    And when breaking down the coaches and the teams they come from, how do you not mention the D-coord is from the Saints? Who… won a Superbowl? Weird.
    Oh, and Raiders fans can’t talk about disarray. You fire one coach who starts building the team in the right direction, then another who actually motivates the team to win for the first time in a decade or so. My official opinion? Until Al releases control of the team (probably from his cold, dead hands), the silver and black will never make the playoffs – regardless of how bad the rest of the division is.
