This poll question has closed and the results were divided. "Best man for the job" had the most votes, but only 32% of the voters made this selection. The second highest vote getter was "Prefer Doman to Anae" with 29%, but very close behind was "Would rather have Detmer" with 26%. Some voters (8%) "wish Anae had stayed" while another small fraction (5%) think Doman will be "the next Doug Scovil."
With the way Doman has been talking about keeping defenses always guessing and throwing the ball very well, he just might end up on the same plane as Doug Scovil. I have to admit that the thought of having Ty Detmer, in any capacity, gets me excited. In the end, if I was to cast a vote, it would have been for "best man for the job." After experiencing the fall out with Jaime Hill this year, I think it is critical that a "Bronco Mendenhall type" be in charge of the offense. Doman is that type of guy. Additionally, he has been with the team for several years (both as a player and coach). He knows the culture and the players. He knows what works and what doesn't work. Doman can take the offense to the next level in the fastest and most pain free way possible.
Thank you to everyone who voted. Don't forget to vote in this week's poll: "Was hiring Joe DuPaix a good move?"
