Bowlen, in a telephone interview on Monday night, was asked if coach Josh McDaniels will be fired at any point during this season.

"I am not interested in making a change," Bowlen said.

OK, what about the 2011 season? Will McDaniels be back for it?

"Yes he will," Bowlen said. "I am not interested in making a coaching change."

Bowlen is still paying large sums of $$$ for Shanahan.

Having to pay for Shanahan, the remainder of McDaniels contract if he's fired and then for a new coach is quite a chunk of change.

For a billionaire, those sums are minuscule, although the word on the street is that Kroenke, the owner of the Rams wants to swap with St. Louis, thus taking over ownership of Denver. The Rams would then go to the highest bidder and possible move back to Los Angeles.

Let's get a few things straight about the Denver Broncos from the only person who has the answers to bubbling Broncos questions: the team's owner, Pat Bowlen.

Bowlen, in a telephone interview on Monday night, was asked if coach Josh McDaniels will be fired at any point during this season.

"I am not interested in making a change," Bowlen said.

OK, what about the 2011 season? Will McDaniels be back for it?

"Yes he will," Bowlen said. "I am not interested in making a coaching change."

So, there you have it. Despite the Broncos' recent taping scandal, their current 3-8 record and McDaniels' 5-16 record in his last 21 games, this is Bowlen's coach. Today, tomorrow, next season.

McDaniels, 34, became the Broncos' coach last season and won his first six games. But the stretch since has been a trying one of alternate prime and poor play. Mostly poor.

Toss in last week's revelations that the Broncos former videographer, Steve Scarnecchia, taped six minutes of the 49ers' walkthrough practice the day before Broncos played the 49ers on Oct. 31 in London, and the swirl of controversy around McDaniels has heightened.

Scarnecchia was fired, McDaniels said he never viewed the tape, and the league fined both McDaniels and the franchise $50,000 apiece.

"I'm very happy with Josh. Josh is doing a good job. I wish he had a few more wins, but we've got five games to go."
- Pat Bowlen Bowlen said: "Josh had nothing to do with that. The former employee did it on his own. There was no direction from the head coach. Josh did not order it. We're absolutely positive this was done by the former employee on his own.

"I'm very happy with Josh. Josh is doing a good job. I wish he had a few more wins, but we've got five games to go. I've got 27 years in this business. The ball bounces funny and it doesn't always bounce your way. We've had bad breaks, injuries. I've been around football long enough to know this happens and it's a part of the game. We've still got a chance to make the playoffs. People have been in a position like ours and it's been done before.''

The Broncos that McDaniels inherited included quarterback Jay Cutler, receiver Brandon Marshall and running back Peyton Hillis. Cutler is with the Bears, Marshall with the Dolphins and Hillis with the Browns. Bowlen knows the Broncos' current struggles are often magnified when considering those players are no longer members of the franchise. But he is not wallowing in regret.

"People get traded,'' Bowlen said. "Sometimes you look back at it as the right move. Sometimes you look back and you're not as happy. It's the nature of the game. I'm not commenting on any one of the particular players we traded. But I know we have bought some people in here who can and will help us."

Bowlen described recent reports that he is in poor health and no longer first-hand running the Broncos as "pure B.S."

"I have no idea where that came from,'' Bowlen, 66, said. "I don't run the triathlons anymore like I used to. I do leg work on machines and do the bike. I'm not as strong as I used to be, but I'm still good.''

And ready to help McDaniels where he can, he said.

"I think what I can do is bring my advice and he can take it or leave it,'' Bowlen said. "I think the coaching staff around him is very important. The head coach is the most important. But the staff is also important. Josh has surrounded himself with good coaches but it may get to a point where some of them have to go. I don't know that yet. Josh is around the football team. He knows."

Bowlen made it clear that if McDaniels doesn't know that, he will make that decision for him. Thus, though Bowlen is certain McDaniels will be retained, he does not offer the same for some of McDaniels' assistants.

"I am confident if he doesn't have the right people around him, that he should change coaches,'' Bowlen said. "It is something I have always left up to my coach. But I always reserve the right to make that change. I have done it on an isolated basis. It rarely happens. He picks the coaches. But, absolutely, I have the right to make those changes."

We have a winner!!! Do the rest of you even follow sports? Owner gives vote of confidence to coach...coach soon to be fired. FYI...Broncos aren't paying much if anything for the rat. Redskins contract negates settlement...NFL rules. Broncos would only owe the difference if he was making more in Denver than DC.

Bowlen actually amended his comments:

This has been a very trying and disappointing season for all of us. We haven't had the success we had hoped to achieve. Josh McDaniels is the head coach of the Broncos ... and you always strive for stability at that position. However, with five games left in the 2010 season we will continue to monitor the progress of the team and evaluate what's in the best interest of this franchise.

That's not a vote of confidence at all. So by the reverse-mojo theory, Josh WILL will be back.

I see that as a recruiting tool statement for the next head coach. Now "unofficial" team sources will start making contact with available candidates to gauge interest in the "possible" opening. Dan Snyder is the king of this. Most colleges do it, MLB and NBA tams do it. Never make a move unless you have a couple of options ready to go.

Right now I have to believe him. He'd be paying 2 people that have nothing to do with his team. However if Gruden will accept the job you have to believe that McDaniels was fired yesterday. I don't think Cowher would take the job. He's already turned down other jobs in the AFC because he apparently doesnt want to coach against the Steelers.

Bottom line - I don't think his job is safe at all. Bowlen is a smart guy and he realizes that unless he's going to fire him now, say something generic. Obviously, he doesn't want to pay 3 coaches, but in the grand scheme of things ... it's not that much $ for a billionaire - what are we talking about $10-12M in 2011 potentially for 3 coaches?

McDaniels is a dead man walking...

Broncos issue statement contradicting Bowlen’s comments on McDaniels’ future

Posted by Mike Florio on November 30, 2010, 5:38 AM EST

As soon as we read Thomas George’s article containing comments from Broncos owner Pat Bowlen indicating that coach Josh McDaniels will be back in 2011, we had a pretty good idea that the commitment eventually would be proven to be meaningless.

We had no idea it would happen so soon.

The Broncos issued a statement on Monday night contradicting Bowlen’s comments.

“This has been a very trying and disappointing season for all of us,” Bowlen said in a written statement, according to TheDenverChannel.com. “We haven’t had the success we had hoped to achieve. Josh McDaniels is the head coach of the Broncos, and you always strive for stability at that position. However, with five games left in the 2010 season, we will continue to monitor the progress of the team and evaluate what’s in the best interest of this franchise.”

The statement didn’t address George’s FanHouse.com article, or Bowlen’s comments appearing in it.

At best, Bowlen’s remarks to George were a trial balloon, and the team quickly realized that it was made of lead. At worst, the conflicting comments will cause those who believe that Bowlen is having health issues that affect his memory and/or communication skills to feel even more strongly about those suspicions. (Bowlen strongly denied in his remarks to George that he’s suffering from any health issues that would impact the owner’s ability to run the team.)

Either way, the message is clear — McDaniels’ vote of confidence had a shelf-life of a couple of hours.

Side note ... I have read a few things that hint towards Bowlen possibly being in early stages of Alzheimers. I really hope that's not the case, I watched my grandmother quickly lose it all because of that... it's incredibly sad and tough to witness. Pat is just shy of 70... so, it's a possibility.

I believe this could be true. The Rams have already been traded for another team (Baltimore Colts)...the NFL wants a team in LA...Kroenke Knows what he is doing as an owner of teams...and if Bowlen hasn't set up a succession plan his family is screwed...it's happening in Jacksonville and Buffalo, and already happened in Miami and St. Louis. If the Rams move back to LA look for the Jags to move to St. Louis.

McDaniels is a dead man walking...What I heard on the radio this morning is $7 1/2M for mcdouche and the rat next year. Add whatever he would have to pay a 3rd coach on top of that. While a lot of the fans and media out here want mcdouche fired, not many expect it. Most seem to feel that Bowlen is too cheap to pay 2 coaches not to coach his team.

Josh McDaniels has another ghost

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on November 30, 2010, 10:05 AM EST
Troubling statements continue to come out of the Broncos organization about Josh McDaniels.

When owner Pat Bowlen isn’t vacillating about McD’s future, co-workers of the beleaguered head coach talk out of turn about him through the media. Someone within the organization spoke to Michael Silver of Yahoo! about the root of McDaniels’ problems.

“If he treated people right, everybody’d just keep their mouths shut. But when you treat people like a piece of [expletive], this is what happens,” the source said.

McDaniels said he wasn’t going to chase ghosts when asked if he’d find out who leaked information to FOX’s Jay Glazer about his coach’s meeting. But McDaniels knows that the sniping he’s taking from within his increasingly toxic building is doing damage.

Bowlen mentioned in his remarks to Fanhouse.com that McDaniels has the right to clean house on his staff after the season. First, the coach has to make it through the next five weeks with minimal drama.

If the ghosts continue to out-number the wins, it will be harder for Bowlen to keep McDaniels around.
