this has been gone over ad nauseum. He was turning over the entire roster, offense first. He went 8-8 with rookies and 2nd year players up and down the roster, and massive turnover from the 2005/06 teams on defense due to injury and age.

He was building a machine, and was cut short. Now he is once again building a machine in DC, doubters looking dumber by the day.

Shanahan is the best offensive mind in the game, how Broncos fans forgot is insanely stupid. Those questioning his defensive ability forget the 97-00, 05 teams.

He's an offensive coach first, therefore he likes to build his teams around smart, mobile QBs, excellent O-line play, seam threat TEs, one cut runners, play action, and balls of steel. If you focus on his defenses, you're completely missing the point.
