Default Schefter: Shanahan isnít a candidate in Kansas City

Shanahan isnít a candidate in Kansas City

Posted: Adam Schefter | Adam Schefter | Tags: Kansas City Chiefs, Mike Shanahan

Despite rampant reports that the Chiefs are negotiating with former Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan to replace Herm Edwards, they are not, sources said Friday.

The Chiefs never have made any contact with Shanahan ó never. And there have been no contract negotiations.

So unless people I have known for years are wrong, Shanahan will not be the next coach of the Chiefs. Itís not happening. People can keep talking as if it is, but itís not. Shanahan will not be the coach of the Chiefs in 2009.

WTF why do I keep getting calls on my cell phone from everyone asking me if Shanny is the god damn coach?

ESPN is reporting it.

Nail in the coffin right there, it will be announced right after the SB that Shanhan is their new HC.

Yeah. Because he's always wrong about Broncos-related news and is the kind of journalist to be in "denial."

It's also funny watching him try to one-up the most reliable reporter in the NFL.

I'm not inclined to believe that Schefter is wrong on matters pertaining to Shanahan. It would be news in itself if Adam ends up eating a **** sandwhich on this one...

You do not deny Scoop. Scoop knows all. He has his hit together, he keeps it right after the 's' so that its well organized. Schefter is probably the most reliable source for news in the NFL.

I still wish he wrote for the DP... I really miss his ten football restaraunt reviews.

Throw in the stuff Shanahan has said are the things he would look for in a coaching job, and it seems suspect.

The one things I can think of that he said he loved about Denver was the rabid fan base. KC obviously has that. Otherwise, it is one of the worst fits I can think of.

I don't know why we're even debating this.

Has anyone talked with Garcia?

Someone needs to talk with Garcia.

Let's settle this.

Schefter has a magic 8 ball that actually works, that's how he knows.

He really is.

For one thing, Chris Mortenson is the main source spawning these rumors, and Mortenson said a day or two ago that Herm would probably be out of KC by Friday. Could have been a total guess, of course, but it's Friday and Herm got the ax. So Mortenson appears to have some connection with what's going on in KC.

And ESPN has run through a host of people, from Bill Williamson to now Kevin Harlan, with these stories saying "I was told Shanahan wanted to coach in the AFC West" or "I was told Shanahan would only work for Scott Pioli".

And Schfter is standing alone.

It wouldnt be a calamity Isaac.

Shanny goes to the Chiefs, we can rest assured that they do no better than 9-7 for the next 15 years. No hall of fame QB on the Chief roster

Not that it matters you you but I had you on iggy for that longest damn time. After a while, it seemed like you would actually engage in sensible, civil conversation so I removed you. Now your back to your old antics and I'm kicking myself for taking your dumb ass off iggy. Well guess what? Now you on perma-iggy. I'd apprectiate if other members would not quote this dumbass, I no longer care what this douche has to say. Thanks in advance.

The difference between all those hacks and Schefter. Is Schefter has Bowlens and Shanahans phone numbers and get it from the horses mouth. Not from sources.

Gotta admit, I'd laugh my a** off if he became KC's new coach. I didn't want Shanny to leave, just wanted him to hire a new D coach and completely wash his hands of GM duties. If he goes to KC, he won't have the same power he had here and what would that say. That Pat was just too big of a p*ssy to ask Mike to step down from those responsiblities? I don't know, it is all speculation at this point. If we were to lose to KC with him as their head coach, I'd be upset, but also laugh at all of the bleeding va***** on here that wanted to chase away a HOF coach. We shall see.
