Default How would you react if Bowlen fired McDaniels and rehired Shanahan?

Since some are throwing out crazy hypothetical situations, I want to get the reaction to this. What if you woke up tomorrow morning and news broke that Bowlen had fired McDaniels and his staff to rehire Shanahan, the Goodmans, Bates, Slowik and company? What your reaction be?

Then I'd think Bowlen should sell the team, because he'd no longer be acting in a rational or in control manner.

No need to rehire them they are still getting paid. Just make them come back to work.

I'd throw up, and would not be surprised if the NFL forced Bowlen to sell the team and move it to LA.

Nope, you get Shanny as he is. The good and the bad. Cutler's happy yet the DB's go back to playing 15-yard cushions. I'd imagine Shanny brings back some of the recently departed defensive players too.

Does McDaniels little brother stay on the coaching staff? We can't afford to lose him.

I would palmface at the situation in general. If Nolan stayed as our DC I would gradually become superstoked. I wouldn't be able to read any sports publications for a while though because the team would be a laughingstock.

I think we should have a contest as to who can make the most ridiculous thread.

I submit this one and the $100,000 to quit Broncos thread as my nomination.

I'd expect more "Bowlen, you gutless drunk" threads that would have to be merged with the original "Bowlen you gutless drunk" thread... We're talking about easily a 100+ page thread

If Slowik came back I wouldn't watch the Broncos except to make fun of them. I'd be cool with Jim Goodman, though.

Considering Shanahan was adamant Slowik was going to remain his DC, and the fact they were good friends, Coach Slo and his 15-yard cushions would be back in the house! I'd also look forward to the return of "the teacher" Jacob Burney!

Gay post - you want to throw out some scenario that will never happen just to get our reactions. Dude, go by a Rubicks Cube or something.

What I'm trying to do here is gauge if the Mane would prefer if things had been left alone with Shanahan, Goodman, Bates and Slowik or not.
