Firing of David Gibbs break from protocol for Shanahan - Denver Post - Bill Williamson
Thursday, November 11, 2004 - The anticipated quiet of the bye week lasted three days as Broncos coach Mike Shanahan made an unexpected and unprecedented decision to fire defensive backs coach David Gibbs, despite a strong season by the secondary. Gibbs - the son of longtime former Denver assistant Alex Gibbs - joins former defensive coordinator Greg Robinson as the only position coaches Shanahan has fired since taking over as head coach in 1995. Gibbs is the first Denver coach under Shanahan to be fired in the middle of the season. Denver has the No. 2 pass defense in the NFL and a 6-3 record.

Spencer new DBs coach - Denver Post - Patrick Saunders
Thursday, November 11, 2004 - Three months ago, player-coach Jimmy Spencer was one of the guys, sweating it out in the summer sun, trying to make the Broncos roster as a backup cornerback. Now Spencer has replaced David Gibbs as the Broncos' top defensive backs coach, becoming those guys' immediate boss. Spencer insists there won't be any power struggles.

Shanahan calls Miami rumors "ridiculous" - Denver Post - Bill Williamson
Thursday, November 11, 2004 - Broncos coach Mike Shanahan laughed off a report Tuesday that he could be in line to become the next coach of the Miami Dolphins. "I heard about it when I was jogging on the treadmill this morning, and I just about fell off the treadmill," Shanahan said Wednesday. "It's completely ridiculous." The NFL Network reported Shanahan could be the eventual successor to Dave Wannstedt, who resigned Tuesday as the Dolphins coach. The report indicated that if the Broncos' season goes south, Shanahan and Denver owner Pat Bowlen could come to a mutual agreement allowing Shanahan to leave.

Final-stretch forecast - Rocky Mountain News - Lee Rasizer
November 11, 2004 - Somewhere deep in Pat Bowlen's desk is a schedule on which the Denver Broncos owner plots out how he believes his team will do each season. Sure, he'll make his 16-0 public pronouncements each summer; this is what Bowlen really thinks will happen. Every so often, he'll dig out those prognostications, match them against real results and . . . see how wrong he has been. So, when Bowlen peers ahead after Denver's 6-3 start, he doesn't claim to be any kind of expert. Yet he also has a strong feeling about the Broncos' final, seven-game push following this weekend's bye.

Secondary coach Gibbs gets fired - Rocky Mountain News - Jeff Legwold
November 11, 2004 - What was supposed to be a routine defensive staff meeting Tuesday afternoon quickly changed Jimmy Spencer's professional life. The Denver Broncos' coaches had gathered to break down some video in preparation for the team's Nov. 21 game against the New Orleans Saints when a somber David Gibbs entered the room. Gibbs told his colleagues he had been fired. "David just walks in and says he just got fired," Spencer said. "We thought he was joking. He shook our hands and said good luck to everybody and left.

Shanahan: Rumors about Dolphins job 'ridiculous' - Daily Camera - Ryan Thorburn
November 11, 2004 - Mike Shanahan, for the second time during this bye week for the Broncos, said he isn't looking for a new job. Denver's head coach, in his 10th season on the job, was thrown into the rumor mill for the Miami Dolphins' vacancy created on Tuesday when Dave Wannstedt stepped down after a 1-8 start. The NFL Network's Adam Schefter, a former Broncos beat writer for the Denver Post, said Shanahan could be a "surprise" candidate for the opening in Miami. "I heard about it when I was jogging on the treadmill this morning and I just about fell off the treadmill," Shanahan said after the Broncos' practice on Wednesday morning. "It's completely ridiculous." On Monday, Shanahan put an end to speculation that he would be a candidate for the University of Florida job for a second time in three years, stating that he was committed to working for Pat Bowlen through the 2008 season when his contract ends.

Broncos At the Bye - DenverBroncos.com - Andrew Mason
Thursday, November 11, 2004 - Fretting about past shortcomings and lamenting what might have been is human nature. Avoiding these traps is essential for success in any field -- but especially in the hypercompetitive world of professional football. That's exactly what the Broncos did against Texans, and in doing so, they turned a potential bye-week crisis into a placement on solid ground. "I know that the players come back and say, 'God, I wish we could have had two of those three losses -- or even all three of them -- back,'" General Manager Ted Sundquist said. "But I don't think it was ever a case of things that can't be corrected that will allow us to pull some games out that might be similar." Learning from them, on the other hand, is essential.

Change at Midstream - DenverBroncos.com - Andrew Mason
Wednesday, November 10, 2004 - When Jimmy Spencer reported for work at the Broncos' Dove Valley headquarters on Tuesday, the last thing he expected was for his duties to be different by the end of the day. But with Head Coach Mike Shanahan's decision to dismiss secondary coach David Gibbs, the parameters of Spencer's work shifted. After a year-plus of serving as assistant defensive backs coach -- with playing duties atop that until three months ago -- the 35-year-old coach found himself in an expanded role. Spencer and defensive/special teams assistant Kirk Doll will jointly handle the work in the secondary. The two sit at opposite ends of the experience spectrum.

Bronco Dan's Week 10 Fantasy Preview - DenverBroncos.com - Bronco Dan
Thursday, November 11, 2004 - Since the Broncos are off this week, it's time for something a little different in this space. Instead of picking the weekly Bronco to watch, we'll name Denver's fantasy MVP through the first half of the season. Nine games in, there are a lot of candidates. Reuben Droughns has certainly been the breakout star. Rod Smith continues to be productive. And Jason Elam may be the best fantasy kicker in the league. But Jake Plummer has been the Broncos best overall fantasy player. He's already thrown for a career high 19 touchdowns, a number that is currently the third most in the NFL (behind only Peyton Manning and Daunte Culpepper). He's also thrown for 2,282 yards, also third most in the league behind the Colts and Vikings signal callers. With those kinds of numbers, it's impossible not to go with Plummer – the Broncos fantasy MVP during the first half of the season.
