i would take him as an OC.. but it probably wouldnt last more than a year or two before he is a head coach again.. no way a guy with his background doesnt get a head coaching job soon.. cleveland is probably on the phone as we speak since they want someone with experience.

He's gone.

A mounumental collapse down the stretch allowing the Chargers to win the division. No playoffs in three seasons. Only one playoff win since Elway retired.

The guy has run his course in Denver. He'll catch on elsewhere, though.

i thought the same thing. Shanahan in Cleveland would be nice. he is TOO good for a backseat job. but Pittsburgh COULD use him as an OC. i'd get behind that. =)

Brownies need to pounce on this like a starved man on a steak.

You guys have a future HoFer for a QB? If Brady Quinn doesn't turn out that way, Shanny won't do squat for you.

I'll trade having 11-5ish type records year after year..over more new england guys.

The guy creates a 1000 yard rusher s out of nobodies, something that cleveland has been lacking has been a ground game, something that is needed to win in the AFC North now-a-days...well....since the beginning of time really.
