As reported by the Denver Post last hour, the Broncos have hired Dennis Allen, secondary coach for the New Orleans Saints as their new defensive coordinator.
Doug Lee will have more on this story in the morning, but I'm comfortable with this move. Perhaps Allen has learned a few tricks from Greg Williams, current defensive coordinator for the Saints. Williams is known for his ultra-aggressive blitzes. One has to believe Allen has been playing close attention.
With this move, let's hope John Fox wants to inject more aggression into the Broncos'
old new 4-3 defense next year.
The Broncos could have waited and interviewed other candidates. However, as a general rule of football fashion, aggression never goes out of style.
Bringing the house is the new black, if you were wondering.
