On this Reaction Monday, Big Al and DMac, The Drive, discuss today’s news that the Broncos will interview Vance Joseph tomorrow for their Head Coaching vacancy. Adam Schefter of ESPN and Mike Klis from 9NEWS join the show to give us some perspective when it comes to this Broncos coaching search, also, who the finalists are for the job and who else could be joining the Broncos’ staff when a Head man is named.
The Drive with Big Al and DMac LIVE in studio on this Reaction Monday as the weekend had a chance to free up Vance Joseph’s responsibilities with the Miami Dolphins as the Broncos were able to schedule an interview with Joseph for tomorrow. Rumor has it that Mike McCoy could become Joseph’s Offensive Coordinator if he lands the job here in Denver. Adam Schefter of ESPN joins the show to talk about the Broncos’ Head Coaching position and the odds that Vance Joseph has in landing the gig. Alfred asks Adam if the new Coach will be “forced” to play Paxton Lynch. Adam also shares that the Broncos were impressed after interviewing Kyle Shanahan this weekend. Listen to the conversation with Adam HERE! The Big Three at 3:30 brings up O.J. Howard and if he’d fit with the Broncos, a female high school basketball player dunked in a game for the first time ever in a girl’s basketball game in Colorado.
Football at Four underway with Big Al and DMac discussing the prospecting of a Mike McCoy return to the Mile High City. News comes out that the University of Colorado and Mike MacIntyre have agreed to a contract extension keepin Coach Mac in Boulder through 2021. Mike Klis from 9NEWS joins the show to give us some thoughts regarding Vance Joseph’s projected staff if he does get the Broncos coaching job with Mike McCoy and Joe Woods as his Coordinators. Mike this McCoy would rather be a Head Coach sooner rather than later, so the stability wouldn’t be there. Mike thinks the two finalists are Kyle Shanahan and Vance Joseph. Listen to the entire conversation with Mike HERE!
The third and final hour of The Drive underway with Big Al and DMac gets going questioning whether or not a first time Head Coach can command the respect needed to run an organization properly. Can they accept when they’re wrong or when they need help? Alfred’s #1 concern is whether or not this new coach can control this locker room. The Closing Bell rings on Peyton Manning for being elected into the College Football Hall of Fame and NFL teams that host games, as all home teams won this weekend in the NFL as trending up. Trending down is Joey Porter for allegedly assaulting a door guy at a bar and getting arrested. Also trending down are the Oakland Raiders after losing to the Texans the way they did this weekend. The show wraps with the fellas giving their opinion regarding Odell Beckham Jr. allegedly punching a hole in a wall after yesterday’s loss in Green Bay and how he’s been acting this season, in general.
