Default Re: Mike Shanahan Fired From The Broncos!

i'd love him as a OC, but i really doubt that would happen. he's a head coach, simple as. i'd say he's the jets number 1 target right now, and the browns too.

or he could just take a break and become a cbs analyst

the Clevelanatti Browngels will do anything to win...ANYTHING! good thing Cowher didn't buy into that bullshit philosophy. he's settling on a team that could do better by rebuilding. to get the Browns any better, they should move again to another town. maybe Fargo, North Dakota or Boise, Idaho. they could use a frachise.

haha! yeah, it is pretty nice to have a few douchebag teams in our division to make things a tad easier for us. BUT, the truth is, we don't need an easy division to take what's ours. we could strive in ANY division.

Marvin Lewis should take the job with the New York Liberty WNBA team. a few wins would do them good too. too bad you can't have a tie in the WNBA! haha!

psssst....i'm gonna let you in on a lil secret.......the steelers DIDn't have a 1000 yd rusher........ what you really need to win the afcn......is too have 2 sucky teams that guarantee you 4 division wins a year.....

Actually, that was more due to Alex Gibbs and his shady blocking techniques than Shanahan. The Broncos' running game has been in decline since he left.

Also bear in mind that this is a guy who wasted a 3rd round pick on Maurice Clarett when he could have probably gotten him in the 7th and just said he was "happy" with his DC after the Broncos gave up 50+ points to the Chargers the other night to lose the division.

Good luck.

I am absolutely SHOCKED. The guy could be an arrogant ass at times, but I have always believed him to be a very good NFL HC. I gained a lot of respect for Rat Face after we played the Broncs in the playoffs in 2005 - he didn't make excuses for the loss and gave a huge amount of credit to the Steelers and the great game they played.

I have no doubt he will get another HC'ing job somewhere.

He'd look good in a black and gold jacket for league minimum

Seriously, I'm surprised, I thought they would stick with shanny forever. He's really been living off 2 super bowls 10 years ago and the zone blocking scheme
