2015 Dolphins Draft Picks
I work with a die-hard Broncos fan. I wanted to get his take on Gase as conventional wisdom is that he didn't have to do much because Peyton Manning was his QB.
This is what he said - "From everything I know about Gase, you guys got the real deal."
He added that Gase is two things:
1. An excellent Xs and Os guy who can adjust his system to the talent and can change the gameplan from week to week, quarter to quarter and drive to drive.
2. An excellent people person who can relate to all sorts of different personalities and is good at building relationships
He said that when Elway fired everyone, he wanted to keep Gase, but he needed to send a message. Also note, Fox immediately took Gase with him to Chicago.
He said that Gase's impact on Peyton Manning is understated because Manning is Manning, but that Gase played a huge role in setting up a system around Manning that took advantage of Manning's strengths, hence the record-breaking season. He also said it is no coincidence that the Broncos offense has gone downhill since Gase left.
Interesting insight from a Broncos fan. Most fans tend to rip former coaches.
