This is ok. Really, it is. This happens. Shanny was not producing, he had an extensive amount of time after Elway and he just was not getting the job done. I believe in an interview Shanny even says as much, that is, he said something along the lines of "I wasn't getting the job done."
Yes to John Fox, no to Josh McDaniels.
You just get too comfortable....Shanahan would be the first to tell you, he was in a box, and had no motivation really to get out. Getting fired can wake you back up.
I personally have found seeing Shanahan from a Redskin fan perspective as pretty enlightening. I viewed him though my Bronco soft light filter for most of his time in Denver.
