His achievements as the Broncos head coach should be untarnished. But the team did sink into mediocrity his final years here. He's done nothing in Washington to make you think that was more an aberration than a trend.
I feel like I need to say this again (don't ask me why haha):

I have no beef with shanahan the offensive head coach. He's the same as john fox the defensive head coach.

HOWEVER, I absolutely do not like shanahan the personnel evaluator/GM, especially when it comes to defense.

As for egos, most in this business have it. You could say "mastermind" or "genius" got to shanahan's head, to his own detriment really...
