  1. Eric should be the logical choice for Bronco’s Head Coach. First of all, he’s probably the best qualified man for the job. That he’s got the local connection as a member of the Golden Buffalos National Championship Team should make this a no-brainer.

  2. Isn’t this a gross conflict of interest to interview within your division?! Shame on Eric and the NFL !

  3. The Broncos are an unstable franchise. Soon to be sold and the people doing the hiring could and probably will be fired.

  4. I much prefer George Paton’s approach to hiring coaches, even if John Elway’s hiring of John Fox and Gary Kubiak paid off well. The VJ and VF hires (and poor FO moves), no bueno. Hopefully Paton picks astutely but I like how he’s casting a wide net. That’s good for candidates and for the Broncos.

    Says the Raider fan whos “stable franchise” lost 2 head coaches, a GM and a 1st round pick in one year. ..

  6. George Paton is taking his time and I appreciate his tedious due diligence in the interview and hiring process of the next head coach. George is looking for an offensive minded head coach that will mesh well with Aaron Rodgers once he’s acquired in the offseason. Aaron will step into a ready-made offense.

  7. since Bieniemy has been such an argument topic last few HC hire cycles, seem like teams are playing hot potato to see who will finally hire him to silence the crowd and the other teams can hire ‘their guy’ and claim they wanted Bieniemy..
