Default Shanahan was our last visible link to the Super Bowls

Sure there's other staff left over, but they're all behind the scenes and rarely get camera time.

When I watch the Broncos next year, there won't be any faces from my favorite two seasons. I'm still a Broncos fan, and only a Broncos fan, but they feel a little less like my team.

Bleh... I still give Turner and Dennison the nod since they've both been coaching on this team since before the Super Bowls.

You'll feel better once we start seeing this team compete. I remember feeling that way when Reeves was fired. It just didn't seem right to me, and I wasn't so sure about Wade Phillips as a HC. But once they took the field, it was still the Broncos.

Was there a point to that? I was trying to make a guy feel better. What are you trying to do?

Yeah, I caught that... but to what end?

I think everybody here is clear on the fact that I think Bowlen made a mistake, and that I'm currently not a fan of the man. I'm just trying to understand what the point of bringing it up in this thread is.

im a fan of the broncos, i always hope we go to the super bowl, and will support the coach and owner in whatever direction it takes them to get there. theres no question pats only goal is a SB trophy, i will trust his judgment in what it takes to get one, he has succeeded before and has been to the big game a LOT.

honeslty, i am glad the last remaining parts to the Super Bowl teams are gone. I am thankful for the titles they brought us, but that was a decade ago and it is time to move on.

We can't keep living in the past, and remembering the golden days, we need to move forward and create new memories and titles to build on.

the same man threatened to move the team before too. hopefully he made the right decision here, but we don't have a great owner.

the vast majority of owners and players in the NFL disagree. ill take their side. even shanahan admitted it after he got fired that bowlen is (in his words) the best owner in all of sports. there is a reason nearly everyone said the broncos is the crown jewel of available coaching jobs this offseason.

As a long time Bronco fan I have a different take on this, "Winning is everything." mantra most put forth here. What I want to see is a good football game with both teams playing like they want to win. Mike Shanahan's Broncos have not given me that for several years now. I am glad he is gone and it was the right thing to do for this team.

Just like the Raiders are no longer about "Pride and Poise" the recent Broncos did not play up to the standard that is fun to watch.

players and owners love art modell too. i think his threats of moving the team were a pretty classless thing to do. maybe that's just me. maybe its different because his were empty rhetoric, where modell went through with it. i dunno.

well first off you must have just become a Bronco fan when rat fink Shanahoohoo came our coach, The Broncos have not looked like the Broncos since the 98,99 and Kubiak left the Broncos. Your beloved Shanafag was NEVER part of that and never will be in my mind. You all can fool yourself by his rat faced horse**** but i never will. Maybe now the Broncos will gain the passion and heart they once had now that that cocky hom0 is gone.

You should stop being a fan, go be a KC or Oakland Fan they like dip****s like Shanadumbass that WALK INTO A SUPERBOWL TEAM, instead of building one. im so sick of you retards that think you are football experts and make absolutely no sense.

and btw if your two favorite seasons are in this decade you are as worthless as a used condom. please commit suicide as soon as possible. and honestly i mean that...

blah you suck!
