Sometimes you're just in the right place at the right time at these NFL owners meetings. One of the more interesting exchanges I've ever witnessed at one of these occurred Monday morning while I was interviewing Mike Shanahan. The new Redskins coach stopped mid-sentence in one answer to greet and meet second-year Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels -- his successor in Denver -- for the first time.

"Hey, Josh, how are you?'' Shanahan said. McDaniel quickly replied: "I didn't have the chance to meet you before. It's my pleasure.''

The past and present Broncos head coaches then stood and chatted amiably, comparing notes on neighborhoods in Denver, and life in the Mile High City.

"We're only 10 minutes from work, and the kids love [the neighborhood],'' McDaniels said. "Coming from Boston and New England, it's totally different, but they love it.''

Shanahan, who just opened a restaurant in Denver, told McDaniels: "I was there 21 years as an assistant and head coach, and of all the places we've been, and we've been in a lot, it was the best place to raise a family. We thought it was the best for the kids. Your family is going to love it.''

How many Broncos fans would have loved to capture that little snapshot on their cell phone camera?

How does Shanahan maintain that aged lobster look?

Did Josh get a raise?

That picture of Shanny. LOL

Imagine waking up to find him lurking beside your bed, staring at you with that expression. I'd absolutely **** myself.

From the greatest coach in Broncos history to his exciting successor who we hope can meet and exceed his predecessors success. Very cool, best of luck to Shanny in DC but I'm glad we made the move.

Found the pic on Knowshon's site, it amused me to see our RB dressed up as Michael - making him a smooth criminal.

lol these are head coaches of NFL teams, you swear like you'd be a threat to them. In all honestly, you'd probably be a pea compared to what they've seen.

Unless you're a fat ass.

I miss Shanahan still. I think he could have delivered another trophy to us.

Oh well. Josh is the man of the hour, hopefully the decade, and I'm looking forward to seeing his vision come together.
