Denver finalizes Brewster's deal - Denver Post - Bill Williamson
Tuesday, February 01, 2005 - Tim Brewster knows Pro Bowl tight ends. He thinks he could easily coach another. Brewster's primary task as the Broncos' tight ends coach will be to help Jeb Putzier make it to the next level. In his first year as the team's primary tight end, Putzier showed promise as Shannon Sharpe's main replacement. "He's just scratching the surface," said Brewster, whose deal was finalized Monday. "Jeb has all the makings of becoming an outstanding tight end in the NFL." Brewster has been credited with the development of San Diego Pro Bowl tight end Antonio Gates, who didn't play college football.

Krieger: Shanahan needs humility, less control - Rocky Mountain News - Dave Krieger
February 1, 2005 - Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. That's as definitive as you can get, which is why this interminable argument about total control in the NFL doesn't get you anywhere. It certainly seems to work for Bill Belichick and Andy Reid, who regaled the wretches with their wit and wisdom here Monday or, in the case of Reid, just the wisdom, and pretty small doses of that.

2004 Review: The Fourth Quarter - DenverBroncos.com - Andrew Mason
Tuesday, February 1, 2005 - The Broncos lurched into the last quarter of the season on a two-game losing streak and with control of a playoff spot slipping away. Denver's chances of winning a division were fading, and, as it turned out, were already gone because the San Diego Chargers would win three of their last four to finish 12-4. The Broncos had lost four of their previous six games after starting 5-1. To make matters worse, the Broncos started poorly against the Miami Dolphins, falling behind 7-0 in the opening minutes. But they recovered, took a lead, and eventually eked out a win over Miami. Two weeks later, they were back in control of their playoff path after beating the Tennessee Titans and watching the Baltimore Ravens and Jacksonville Jaguars fall on the day after Christmas. Denver didn't yield control from that point forward, and clinched a second straight 10-6 season and wild-card playoff appearance.
