That's the awesome on the part of Shanahan. He takes care of his guys in a very positive manner. You should all be proud of him and them. It's okay to express your feelings and even blubber a bit.

He hired Slowik again? I woulda thought with all the hate from Broncos fans that guy would have been selling insurance by now.:wiggle:

See who was right? He isn't the coordinator....

Anyways, I like that these guys are getting into coaching. It would be fun following their careers if they become serious. Shanahan is the man.

Shanahan didn't coach in 2009 after being fired by the Broncos,
he spent much of the year working out of a Centennial office building with Slowik, planning for his return to the NFL. Davis met Shanahan at his house to talk about the future.

Mike Shanahan hearts Bob Slowik

Right, it was all Elway. That is why Elway had 12 SB wins before Shanahan showed up... Being a crap team right before Shanahan became head coach and them going on to win the most games ever in a 3 season span sure supports that as well...

About what was "asked", you were asking a rhetorical ****in question, so obviously you weren't truly looking for an answer, so that pretty much deems the above quote, dumbass post #1381717... for an online acronym.

Speaking of, I'm not 100% sold that Shanny decided to just help these guys this season... why none of the seasons when he was in Denver did they decide to come back?

It almost sounds to me like he could have had this planned out, and possible bringing some Bronco greats into D.C. to help instill some of his culture and philosophy into the redskins.

I was saying that I answered a question. Nothing you said had anything to do with the conversation taking place. He asked why Elway wasn't there. No one gives a crap who you want more.

How much has Elway been at this camp anyways? I sure haven't heard much about him. I have heard a lot about the guys that want to help coach the Redskins. How many players is Elway working with? How many are these interns working with? I would say the multiple interns are doing a lot more than Elway.

Anyways, Shanahan did bring in guys when he was here. All of his ex players that wanted to get into coaching have always been welcome and have always been around. This isn't something new for him. How is it that all of you "fans" don't know this? Someone even pointed it out already in this thread and you still come with that? Wow, talk about dumb...

Show some proof of it then. I would love a quote from either that proves this... I do have a question though. If there is bad blood, why would I care? Does that make Shanahan a worse coach? Does it take away from the great things he did for this team? It doesn't for me...

They are different players? No way! You mean the same guys don't just intern all the time? You mean after interning they either decided they did or didn't want to coach? You say that is the reason for interning? Man, this is some crazy stuff.

That's EXACTLY why I said, I'm not 100% sold. Get it? I find it a coincidence all 2 future HOF's, including a league MVP/SB MVP, decide to come in this season.

Yes, I claimed the players are different than the others he brought here... are you going to tell me Terrell Davis and Atwater are on the same level as Kubiak, Keith Burns, etc.? Or would you say, they're the same?

Like I said, you're too easy.

This is specifically what I said...

Speaking of, I'm not 100% sold that Shanny decided to just help these guys this season

Here is a quote from TD in the article...

"Basically I said at some point, I might look at coaching, just as part of a long discussion we had about a lot of things," Davis said. "Then in the spring he called me to see if I would be interested in giving it a try, to do an internship to see what I thought, or how it would go."

There's 1 case of proof. The idea is mainly intuition.

So to recap for you, it just seems like a coincidence... a perfect scenario for some greats to come instill Shanahan's culture and philosophy. The point is not about Shanahan helping his people, we all know he does. Get off that.

And FYI, the first thing I did was read the article... but it looks like you didn't fully read it or understand my post... "playa." LOL

So they are different becuase they are better players? You do realize this is for coaching, right? Atwater said he just now wanted to get into it as he just finished raising kids. How do you know that conversation with Davis wasn't recent? Shanahan talks to a lot of his old players. He holds charity golf and invites them to things like his restraunt openings. This is exactly the way the other players came in to Broncos camps. Shanahan knew they were interested in coaching and brought them in to learn. Pittman just got out of football so I don't know why he would have been here sooner... You are reaching. Yes, Shanahan probably made it a point to have some of these guys at his first camp. He will also make it a point to have guys at his 5th camp if he knows some that are interested.

Anyways, way to cherry pick your quote. Here is the rest " why none of the seasons when he was in Denver did they decide to come back?" Again, this was explained in the article....

Yes, I get this. I am asking what it has to do with this conversation. I love Rod and I love that he comes in to help. He isn't looking to get into coaching though and those are the guys Shanahan is bringing in. Rod is just looking to help his old team. That situation is completely different than what these other guys are doing.

And to further that, he is the secondary coach. Those years when the Broncos had huge turnovers and Champ Bailey was having his big interception years, that was when Slowik was secondary coach in Denver. The guy is a terrible defensive coordinator, but I think he is actually a great secondary coach. Champ said he learned the most from Slowik, really respected the guy.

Shanny will always be one of my favorite coaches of all time. I like Red Miller as well. Wanting a change in coaches is one thing...hating on Shanny after he's gone is another.

Say what you will about him...but he was the mastermind. He was doing things in this league that blew other teams out of the water. He is an excellent coach...a HOF'er in my book!

He and Elway had a falling out when John and Janet got divorsed. Shanahan and his wife were close with Janet Elway. Stuff like that happens and I'm sure the relationship was strained.

I think with a year off and time to regroup...he's going to do great things with the Skins. Not this year....I just don't think they have the horses to compete with Dallas...but, you just never know. If Portis can find his old self and McNabb can some how make studs out of a group of no-name receivers...who knows.

I love the fact that guys are willing to go work for Shanny. I often wonder if all the hate for Shanny comes from kids who weren't alive to see the Broncos come so close but never taste the victory of a Championship. To have gone to 4 Superbowls only to get blown out and to live through that as a Broncos fan the entire time...and then to finally make it over the hump and win the big one. There's no way in hell I'll ever turn my back on Shanny or Elway for that matter!

This has nothing to do what they did on the playing field. It an opportunity for former players to try a different like of work. Great football talent doesn't equal great coaching ability.

Shanahan has for many years given guys that played for him an opportunity to experience what means to be coach in the professional ranks. For some (Kubiak, Burns,Dennison) it been a success transition for other it hasn't.

BTW Elway is one of the great player ever, that doesn't mean he would be good professional coach, because there is major difference in the skills it requires to be successful. And reason Rod Smith is still in Denver doing stop in work with the team, is because he stated before his outside business interests are were his passion is now, and he doesn't want the grind of being an NFL coach.
