Not sure how much McD actually contributes to the overall D. When we had a sucky personnel we had a sucky defense and when we had really good players we had a very good def. It is actually really tricky to grade his overall performance. With our current defense I think alot of coaches could make it look great.
It like the Miami heat. You could give me the coaching job and I would still win the majority of the games. I just tell the Lebron, Dwade and Bosh to do their thang and get PAID
How much credit would you give the offense coordinator for the broncos?
That is with any coordinator. I said when he had nothing to work with. Watch and see what he does when he has all the pieces. It doesn't hurt when your last two draft picks (Kuechly and Star) were in the running for DROY with one winning it. When a guy like this has all the pieces or most of them. You move up in the rankings.
Rivera has his hand in the cookie jar but not as much as we might believe. The coordinators get their game plans together and go over with RR. RR I am sure gives his two cents worth and maybe even a nickel on defense but this is McDerrmott's defensive team and he should get more credit than he does.
Anyhow, We goTop 5 again. We got a good chance of losing him but we have two great positional coaches ready to step in and keep it going.
