Re: What happened to Richie Petibon? I love youtube

Petitbon was the greatest DC that we've ever had. He would've been a good HC, but he suffered from inheriting a team that had grown old and Gibbs left him with nothing. The offensive line was as bad then as it is now. Casserly got the talent for Joe (except when Joe insisted on trading UP to draft Desmond Howard, who looked like a sure fire all pro, but couldn't run routes. Petitbon could change his defense at half time and come back out and demolish any opponent! Who coached the Broncos when they jumped out to a 10-0 lead and then Doug Williams destroyed them? I know Petitbon changed his defense and even Elway couldn't mount a comeback! But I hope Shanahan wasn't the Denver coach.

One thing about Shanahan, he shipped us Clinton Portis for a Hall of Fame CB PLUS a 2nd round draft choice. He looked like a genius in that trade. Plus he took an offensive guard that the Redskins cut (like we didn't need O-linemen then!) and he made at least two pro bowls blocking for Elway!

You've got your time frames all mixed up. Portis came after Elway.

I think he was talking about Schlereth. I think the Skins cut him because of injury risk.
He also made the Pro Bowl in 1998. I don't see any others from his Denver tenure.

Was he also the coach when we won against Miami? The Super Bowl was probably the reason they drafted Dan Marino the next year. They completed 4 passes all game. Since after halftime they had none (and only 2 first downs and 34 total yards), I guess we made a halftime adjustment! I remember I was watching with supporters for both teams. After Riggo scored we only had a 3 point lead with 10 minutes to play, but all the Miami supporters left because they knew they wouldn't score any more points! They scored their TDs on a 76-yard pass play on Miami's second series and a 98-yard KO return. (27-17 final score.)

That Bills team was basically "The Greatest Show on Turf" for that era, and Petibon's scheme battered them that day. Kelly was picked off 4 times, and Thomas, who led the league in yards from scrimmage, was held to 40 total yards. That game wasn't nearly as close at the 37-24 final score, with the Bills getting two TD's in garbage time after the Skins took a 37-10 lead going into the 4th quarter. I will always remember that defensive game plan as Petibon's Masterpiece.
