Shanahan Gets the Boot

Wow. I simply cannot believe what just happened - Mike Shanahan was just fired as the Broncos head coach and director of football operations. I've been sitting here for about 30 minutes now trying to wrap my mind around this craziness. I am not a fan of this decision at all but now may the speculations begin...

Regardless of whether one agrees with Shanahan's dismissal, we should all be happy from a fantasy perspective... no more of those random running back shenanigans! (though obviously it was a necessity this year)

Just to dispel any speculation... I'm not considering the job.

That's pretty crazy, as it seems like he was doing a pretty good job grooming the diabetic wonder. Though "D" has been an issue under his tenure, so I wonder if ownership is looking to go with somebody that will shore up that side of the ball.

There's this consolation... they're not the Chiefs. *sigh*

Shanahan has been donking it up hard in the AFC West since Elway retired. I think it would be truly awesome if they managed to convince Shottenheimer to coach the donkeys.

:D

Well buy looking into the past couple of drafts (Clady, Eddie, Marshall) that Denver has had it appears that they have some people in place in the front office who can step in and find talent on the Offensive side of the ball. Now can they find some Defensive players? Who else can handle the zone blocking scheme?

Here in NE the talk is of course Cassel, Pioli, & McDaniels and take some enjoyment from the misfortunes of the JESTS and Brett FRAUD. Good chance that Pioli goes to Cleveland seems to be a good fit although not sure that McDaniels (Canton, Ohio guy) goes with him but if he does don’t be surprised if Martz ends up as the new OC in NE. Other likely candidates to be HC if Pioli goes to Browns – Ferentz (HC Iowa), Pat Hill (HC Fresno State), maybe the Man – Genius but think he might end up as the DC.
