Yeah McDaniels, stick to offense if you want your team to succeed.
That was I took from the Bronco's message board.
I had to laugh at all the "pure 34 vs Nolan's 34 hybrid" posts.
Ahhh... memories... Its funny to see other fans go through the same Nolan arguments we did.
Hard to stay a pure 3-4 for Denver when they lack the personnel to truly run the system full time. Going back and forth between both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes makes it harder for team to decipher what it is you are trying to do and going to do, and it forces them to prepare for both looks.
Yeah, I remember having those exact same conversations about our team. That's why I found it so funny.
I don't know how much truth there is to this, but the broncos fans seem to think their earlier defensive success was due to Nolan and his hybrid scheme. Then McDaniels forced him to run more of a "pure" 34 and the defense fell apart. There are some fans that don't see things that way, but most seem to hate losing Nolan.
