Since the other HOF players seemed to confuse you. Let me be more specific..

Factor out the HOF QB. And how many playoff wins does he have.

ONE
.

There, is that easier.

Of course I'm going to call out SoCal when he goes out of his way to attack me. Now I'll be sure to include you with your butt buddy.

I'm done with this shanahan subject, we will see what happens but I'll be here piling on both of you since you two are deciding to douche it up. You deserve it after attacking me for no reason
I'm the biggest instigator? Really/ What did I saw that wasn't true? Socal is not my butt buddy I hardly know him. Cali-john is my butt buddy!! He has a dog that looks like a furry penis!!!

Do you really think that John was not a HOF QB before mikey came to town?

How about Brady under any other HC does he become a HOF player?

Same goes for Bart star.

They IMO were HOF coaches. They created their teams from the ground up they did not inherit all of their HOF players.

Mikey won ONE post season game without JOHN.

I doubt that he can win another one without him. Time will tell.

Actually John was not a HOF QB before Shanahan came to town as his QB coach, and his OC, and one could even argue that his bust was not a sure thing before Shanahan came in as his HC. Shanahan had far more impact on John's NFL development than any single other person.

Let me ask you this, was Belichick a HOF head coach before Brady came to town?

When Elway then retired after the draft and after Rich Gannon had already signed with Oakland he was pissed. I guess he wanted Gannon. I wonder how things would have been different wiht Gannon leading the tema for 3 or 4 years after all he did lead Oakland to the SB in 2002.
I remember listening to Nalen talking about how he was for sure Elway would of played another 2-3 years if Shanahan would of stepped down. Nails said Elway didn't like the way Shanahan was so stubborn and it caused conflicts between the two.
I am a big fan of Elway and Shanahan. If it wasn't for Shanahan, Elway would of never go to another superbowl much less winning one. Because of this, I don't think Nalen is correct. Elway has much confidence in Shanahan and his system. However, I don't doubt Shanahan being stubborn, but not to a point where it caused Elway to retire.

In all honesty, I was a Terry Pierce fan. For a year or so, anyway. I made up for it by drafting Woodyard in the mock.

I can't recall any coach winning a superbowl without a HOF player or a team full of all pro's. I guess you can argue for the Pittsburg team that won the superbowl several years ago, but I think Palamalu has a very good shot of being HOF. Not only that, Big Ben is one hell of a QB.

Clearly Elway loves the Broncos and Pat Bowlen, there is a reason he stayed away from Dove Valley until Shanahan left. I would not be surprised if Bowlen consulted with Elway before firing Mike and Elway gave Mike a thumbs down.

I'm just glad Bowlen fired Reeves. What was Reeves going to do, bench Elway and start Maddox? WTF?

See? Coaching can make the difference. I never had a problem with Shanahan as a game day coach. Frankly, he's one of the best I've ever seen. It was his Napoleonic tendencies that I didn't like. I mean, who builds a house like that?

I doubt that if Elway was in on the move, the next move would've been to hand the keys and all FO authority over to kid wonder. Man was that dumb.

I don't think so. They'll need to win another SB. I see Ben going down hill fast did you see the punishment he took today? He takes that every single week. I think his skills are going to start to erode.

Either that or some woman is going to shoot him in the balls.

I don't understand the hate for Shanny. Maybe disagree for his love affair of Slowik. Or some of this personnel moves. But without shanny there would've been no Terrell Davis. And without Elway there would've been no shanahan. Without Terrell would there have been trophies? It was the perfect triangle where all 3 were needed to come together.

There is no hate for Shanahan. It's just a handful of people keep perpetuating that myth. If you talk about anything that doesn't reflect Shanahan in a god-like light, the sophomoric name calling begins.

they got pretty lucky today. Defense was having all sorts issues letting a garbage eagles offense move at will. Foles has freaking absurd happy feet and panic attacks at the slight hint of pressure.

but hey if shanahan can keep this going and bring #4 to DC, I will customize those shanny jackets with glee

edit: there is something to be said about division games and how tough they are especially with this being Andy Reid's last game, the eagles came to play. However, if the skins put that kind of effort against Dallas especially on defense, Romo and a hot cowboys offense will demolish them and the skins will be relegated to hoping GB and Detroit help them out, which I would not want to count on...
