Maybe if McNabb tried a little harder to stay in shape and didnt throw dirt balls every other pass, he might still be employed.

The only QB that Shanny hasn't made look good at times is McNugget. As a HC I doubt many other HC's has sent more different QBs to a Pro Bowl as Shannny.

I agree, with mikey as his coach I doubt any QB can reach their potential.

Elway only did it with Kubes as his go between. None of the other QB's he brought to town where stellar..

Please no one mention cutlet as we all know that he is a turn over machine..

IIRC after Elway we have had 14-15 QBs that have started at one time of the other.. Most of those on mikeys watch..

he has been in WAS and gone through 5-6 or more already..

he is a loser as a HC great OC but dos not have it to win consistently..

once on the internet forever in the minds and souls of real people..

I just read that Manning met with him and his kid while in DEN before going to PHX. Guess that even MAnning knows..

WOnder what would happen if Indy passed on The kid from Standford and they drafted him.. Does anyone think that he might not want to play for mikey and force them to trade him to a real HC..

Much Like John did way bay and Eli did not to long ago..

That's complete bull****. Elway and the Rat were so close that Reeves fired Shanahan for allegedly scripting plays behind his back. Shanahan was a big part of Elway's success both as his offensive coordinator and as head coach.

The Rat is so hard to work with that Steve Young considered coming back to play for him with a skull full of oatmeal. They must have had a terrible working relationship in San Francisco too...winning a superbowl together.

Shanahan runs into trouble when he comes across jackasses who don't want to work. Plummer, McNabb, Haynesworth...etc. Guys who just want to show up on Sunday and take their check.

Seriously...I don't know why some of you dumb-dumb's even bother trying.

Shanahan has a poor record as a head coach? Cripes.

Shanahan's 2006 draft is on the all-time top 10 list. He can find the talent. Any coach with a 20-year track record is going to have a few down cycles when it comes to talent acquisition.

and which of those players are still in DEN under contract..

If they were so good why did he get fired after two years with them..

mikey is a ****ing head case.. time to understand that..


if it was not for 4-7 round picks he would not have been able to field a team, for most of his time in DEN..

BTW just which of those teams played the last 4 games like they played the first four..

He won loads of games with smoke and mirrors and when the opposing coaches figured it out we got our asses handed to us..

might I add how many play off wins did he have without HOF players.. Won a lot of early games each year and rarely won the last few..

Sorry but with out John E he would have been unemployed soon after the first seasons..

The biggest factors in Shanny being a god were.

1-He had John Elway
2-He had Gary Zimmerman
3-He had Shannon Sharpe
4-He had Terrell Davis
5-He had Steve Atwater
6-He had Rod Smith and Eddie Mac
7-Neil Smith
straight 5 men who are good enough to be HOF and 3 that already are right? Not sure about that.

Not to mention Howard Griffith one of the best FB's who was playing at the time, Stinky, Romo, etc. It was a mix of nasty and finesse that almost any coach could have won with IMO.

Dude I don't know what you are on... but Shanny is an excellent QB developer and maximizer. You do know that before being our coach he was our offensive coordinator. He also coordinated Steve Young... and came back and made Elway a champion.

He is a hard headed coach... dictator in a way. He uses a system that he has used for a long time that works. As long as the QB he has is somewhat accurate, he will make him better that his capabilities permit him. Plummer was a great example of this. But once you go rouge on his system... well that's the end of you. Hence QBs with problems with him. Shanny made Kubes... and maximized Elway to his full potential. Not the other way around.

The best part was when you said he is a loser HC... like... really? Other than his last 3 coaching year... the man has been gold. Yes his act got stale around here... but to think less of him?... The man has HoF credentials... you don't make it there being a "loser HC".

Denver still has their starting guard (Kuper) and a former NFL sack leader (Dumervil). Cutler and Marshall were parlayed into value. 2 1sts, 2 2nds and a 3rd, it's not Shanahan's fault the picks were not all hits.

They were a young developing team so having some growing pains was to be expected. Bowlen didn't have the patience to watch it sprout. When your average age on offense is 24/25 and you rank second to the New Orleans Saints in average yards per play, you have a chance to be really good for a sizable window.

Donovan McNabb continued carving out a career as an outspoken TV commentator Friday, leveling some criticism in the direction of Tim Tebow.

McNabb was back on ESPN's "First Take" following a controversial Thursday appearance during which he criticized Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

The six-time Pro Bowl quarterback switched gears Friday, saying Tim Tebow should get off Twitter and that he, not the new Jets backup signal caller, was the most unfairly criticized quarterback in the history of the NFL.

When the subject of a recent Twitter message was brought up, in which Tebow thanked Broncos fans for their support and promised Jets fans he would play his heart out for them, McNabb said the popular quarterback needed to start studying football and take a break from social media.

"Let it go. At some point let's focus on getting into camp and learning a new offense," McNabb said. "There's no need to keep trying to have the fans behind you.

"Every time that we look up there's something. He's reaching out to fans, telling them 'I love you, I'm working hard.'

"As an NFL player, and as a veteran in this game, no one cares what you're doing during the offseason," McNabb continued. "They only care about what you do on the football field. This is why a lot of people in the Denver Broncos locker room had an issue [with Tebow]."

Are seeing a trend here?

Known quarterbacks that, having played for Shanny, have issues with him.

1. Elway

2. Bubby Brister

3. Plummer

4. McNabb

1. Elway and Shanny aren't pissed off and angry at each other. The Peter King column about Manning's week of FA reported that Elway was texting Shanny while Manning visited him in Denver at his house. Reach.

2. Bubby Brister is pissed that Shanahan decided to proceed with the youth movement/Brian Griese vs. going with him. Bubby's pissed because Shanny lent him the keys to the corvette and he finally had some career success. He wanted more. Nothing really to see here. Bubby wasn't that good.

3. Jake Plummer's career stats at AZ 90TD's/114INT's, losing record, in Denver 71 TD's/47INT's winning record and 3 playoff appearances. Mike Shanahan single handedly saved this boy's career. He's pissed because we got trounced in the playoffs three years in a row by double digits deficits because he couldn't keep up with the Manning's and Roethlisberger's of the league and Shanahan had to fix the situation. Anybody who doesn't understand why Plummer is pissed, is an idiot. The guy is immature even at this age. Jake was upset he wasn't allowed to go draw plays up in the sand vs. spending the time needed to be great and that's why Denver moved on. They never got the commitment to take advantage of some of the great seasons we had... especially 2005. We should have a trophy for that year. Jake melted down in the clutch like he always did.

4. McNabb would have an argument if he would have produced at Minnesota. Instead, the guy had his work ethic/conditioning questioned by Shanahan, after TO had previously questioned it and when given a chance with the Vikings, he validated those questions as Minnesota cut him outright for a rookie 2nd round draft pick. McNabb can act pissed. He did it to himself.

04-01-2012, 02:35 PM
Shanny only drafted a few QB's his whole time in Denver, and those were always lower-round guys except for Cutler. I don't know what the deal was with him, I guess he figured he was smarter than everybody else and could develop a lower-round guy. One of his biggest mistakes was Griese, who he gave that huge contract to.

Other than Griese and Cutler, who did he draft at QB? Jeff Lewis, Matt Mauck, Van Pelt.

He goes to WASH and instead of drafting a QB last year he goes with Rex Grossman and Beck, after trading a 2nd rounder for McNabb. I guess he was just waiting for the right prospect, like with Cutler. Now he'll have RG3 at a steep cost.
