What do you guys know of him?

Is he ready to be a head coach?

We're debating about him on Chefsplanet.

If he learned from his mistakes McD might be a good choice as hong as he had a strong GM to answer to.

He sure was for us but if he ever learns to not be a dick he might turn out to be a good one.

First time coaches often suck. See Shanny in Oakland.

I do not think anyone knows for sure if he is ready. I think he'll take over the Skins when Shanny is is done. It's hard to tell with him in Shanny's shadow.

I don't think he is quite ready - I have no doubt he is a skilled offensive coach but I would like to see him get another year or two as a coordinator before making the jump.

Right now I would consider Mccoy a better candidate.

Do you have RGIII? I guess if you guys get Geno he could come in with same system. People comparing the 2 players are going to be dissapointed though. Geno has 0 deep ball accuracy compared to RgIII. Geno more another Cam Newton at best. The league will figure out he only throws short passes and runs a lot. Load up the box because he doesn't throw the deep ball like rgIII. None of these other running qbs do.

I don't get the hate for Mike Shanahan just like I never got the hate for Tebow and never got the hate for Jake Plummer. All those 3 have done for this franchise is win playoff games (and in Shanny's case 2 SBs including that 98 team I would put up against any in league history). Was it time for Shanahan to go when he did, yeah, but I don't hold any ounce of hate for him and what he did for the Broncos.

I got the hate for Orton - though once he stopped starting and now he's gone the hate just didn't have depth to it, and I understand the hate for Cutler with the way he left, even if it wasn't his fault, he still shat on the fans on the way out the door.

Shanahan voluntarily took the Oakland Raider HC job. His job description under Al Davis was to beat the crap out of the Broncos. Isn't that a good enough reason to at least dislike Shanahan?

Shanahan was brought into the NFL by Reeves as one of his earliest hires, promoted through the ranks from WR coach to Offensive Coordinator, then Shanahan defects to the Raiders.

That's kind of disgusting. The Raiders. Shanahan voluntarily takes the HC job under Al Davis where his job description is to beat the team that brought him into the NFL. One of the most bitter rivalries in the NFL, and Shanahan jumps ship to the rival from the team that brought him into the NFL.

I got my issues with Mike but taking the Raiders HC job certainly ins't one of them. What is he supposed to say, "No thanks Al I don't want to take the HC job that I have worked for all my life for because it's the Raiders EUUU"

let me say I took a job once as the state manager for a company in STL.. I was promised one thing a certain % of the profits plus a really good salary and loads of benefits, company car gas etc....

After being on the job for two weeks and going over the P&L statement, I sat down with the Owner and gave him the cold hard facts that the previous guy had sold all the decent assets and the company would not be profitable for a couple of years..

Gave him the option of upping my salary or looking for another manager because I was not going to work on that salary alone.. HE chose to go cheap..

I was hired in LA two days later..

sometimes you have to play hardball with owners

It's certainly one of them with me. Shanahan takes the arch-rival Raider HC job where his job description is mainly to beat the Broncos, since the two teams were vying for the AFW West title at the time. Most people won't agree now, but, if Shanahan would have gone on to beat the hell out of the Broncos for ten years what would you say?

I'd say he proved himself to be a good coach

what a ****ing nerd. if the rival of the company you work for offered you a raise of 1000% to man the position you've always wanted to man, you'd shove over an old lady to suck some dick to get it. get over yourself, jesus some people are idiots.
