Broncos' Fangio: 'Von Miller can play even better'

Vic Fangio

You know, we've been the No. 1 defense here [in Denver]... we've been at that [level] before.

The new Denver Broncos head coach joins the team after serving as the defensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears, where he led that team to finish the 2018 regular season ranked first in scoring defense (17.7 points allowed per game), takeaways (36) and interceptions (27), and third in sacks (50) and turnover differential (+12).

"It's always good when you have a guy on your side of the ball and can take matters into their own hands", Parks said.

After back-to-back losing seasons, the Denver Broncos have a new coach - and he's a major change of pace from the last one.

Fangio's cause in Chicago was buoyed by the presence of outside linebacker Khalil Mack and rookie inside linebacker Roquan Smith.

"It is bittersweet to move on", Nagy said in a statement.

But upon further review, taking into account the potential importance of meshing with Gary Kubiak, who could make his way back to the sidelines this season, Stokley said his money is on Fangio getting the job.

"Pritchard and Cecil" co-host Mike Pritchard agreed with Stokley assessment, saying in hiring Fangio and pairing him with Kubiak the Broncos tick off one of the coaching attributes sought out by general manager John Elway: expertise on the coach's given side of the football.

"I think that's great". I'm looking forward to working with both of them. Kubiak led Denver to a Super Bowl title in 2015 as the team's head coach, before retiring due to health issues. "That's exciting; I know the guys that play on offense are geeked up right now".
