shanny will forever be know as the coach who played RG3 when he was hurt and benched him when he was healthy.
after to listening to all the press conferences i was most impressed with cousins. Maybe because his conscience is clean and he has nothing to hide .

Honestly, how many coaches could have stepped into Dan Snyder's 4-12 mess in 2009 and taken that team to the playoffs? He's like a less successful Jerry Jones alternating between legends and unproven coaches every other hire. The next coach will be unproven if Snyder's pattern holds up hiring Spurrier, then Gibbs, then Zorn, then Shanny, next up...?

Kubiak would be a great choice, bobby turner would stay to work with kubes.
He might even convince philips to join him.

I asked this earlier and no one answered it.

If you are Daniel Diaper Snyder, would you sign Shanahan to an extension? Is he your coach?

or

You own a football team, would you sign Shanahan?

Steve Young wasn't considered a HOF QB then, IMO. And the argument can be made that they are HOFer's because they worked woth Shanahan...so I think the point is moot.

Skins fans are split.

1/3 want Snyder gone.

1/3 want Shanahan gone.

1/6 don't care.

1/6 are waiting for their Ratbirds fan applications to be approved.

The guy who said Tebow was better than Cam Newton and would revolutionize the game, that Shanahan would win a Super Bowl in D.C., and that Jay Cutler was going to be a championship caliber QB is making IQ judgments on other people. Good stuff.

I fire him after the season...so no extension.

Depends on the team. Texans seem like a perfect fit for him.

I gotta hope there's some middle ground on where people stand on Shanny. He's the greatest coach in Broncos history, hands down (I hope in two seasons Fox can enter the discussion but a lot of things have to go right between now and then for that to happen). 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.

At the time they were hired, coaches like Red Miller, Dan Reeves, and Mike Shanahan were what the doctor ordered and all three led the Broncos to some of the most exciting seasons ever and 6 SB appearances between 1977-1998. By the same token at the time they were fired they deserved to be fired.....

Mike is unanimously considered our greatest HC due to the back to back titles won. But it's not 1997-98 anymore.

Mike Shanahan coached the Broncos for 14 seasons averaging 9.8 wins per season....... His Broncos finished top 10 in scoring 10 times and 7 times in points allowed

Mike Shanahan went 138-86-0 as Broncos head coach (.619) and went 8-5 in the post season with 3 AFCCG appearances and 2 conference titles and 2 SB titles.....as Redskins head coach he is 24-37 (.393) and is 0-1 in the post season....as the Raiders head coach he went 8-12 (.400)

Overall he is 170-135-0 (.557) and 8-6 (.571) in post season with 3 AFCCG appearances, 3 AFC titles and 2 SB titles.

However, since his last Broncos playoff season (2005) his teams have gone a combined 48-62 including playoffs (.436%)

Without Elway he is 124-125-0 (.498%) including post season......so yeah he's a bit over rated now and deserves to be jobless.

Yeah...I think everybody appreciates what Mike did here. He worked here a long, long time.

I do thank some are attached to a distant past relative to the coach he is today.

I don't think the Texans will hire him. I think if he does get another gig, it will be some place that will be diffcult to succeed at as well.

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...

That right there. You can't say anything if you make that statement. Just hide in the corner and be seen and not heard.
Just nonsense.

Shannyham is making one last desperation move to get his name in the limelight before Dan Snyder gives him his walking papers.

How ironic: Shanny leaves in RGIII against Seattle last year instead of benching him in favor of Cousins. The Skins would have lost anyway, but this this dumbass move sealed their fate.

Fast forward to this disastrous season. With nothing on the line but Shanny's tarnished reputation, the Mastermind benches RGIII for Cousins when the season is already in the toilet.

Shannyham is and will always be his own worst enemy. You da man, Shanny! You do man!
