Lofton, Schneider Out, Washington, Lal In

James Lofton has been fired, Schneider jumped ship to USC. Lionel Washington will coach the defensive backs and Sanjay Lal will be promoted to WR coach.

We also requested and received permission to interview Jeremy Bates for a position of the staff. The Broncos could block him from taking a position on our staff other than Head Coach. I believe we probably said he was interviewing for head coach even if that isn’t our intention.

Bates, called plays last season for the Broncos and is also a proponent of the ZBS a lot like Cable.

You have to wonder if this is a complement to Cable or a replacement.

So far, Davis is assembling a coaching staff without a Head Coach, which seems odd considering his health status. These are all moves that seems like Cable has some input on. I expect him to be hiring soon.

  • It better be or they are doomed in 2014. RT @RyClev: @ChrisHansenNFL You think the Raiders D is on par with the Broncos minus Ware?

  • Not w/o Ware. Shouldn't we hold him to higher standard? MT @RyClev: Peyton going against a better defense. Plus he didn't suck last year.

  • Unfair to Schaub to knock him for one bad day. Has as many interceptions in last 2 days as Peyton. Woodson x2 and Webster x2.
