Default Mike Shanahan at Patriots Practice

http://tinyurl.com/ks4y2m

FOXBOROUGH -- Longtime Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan was a guest at this morning's training camp practice.

After the Patriots stretched, Bill Belichick called the players together and introduced Shanahan.

"He said that he wasn't here as a media guy or a coach, he's just here out of mutual respect, because they had a lot of good battles," relayed rookie quarterback Brian Hoyer, when asked about the message.

Hoyer said he couldn't hear Shanahan -- "I was kind of in the back because I'm a rookie" -- but he thought he heard Shanahan thank the players for the opportunity.

Shanahan, who last week attended Pittsburgh Steelers training camp practices, spent time speaking with Patriots senior football adviser Floyd Reese and owner Robert Kraft at the practice.

-Mike Shanahan a guest at today's practice. He addressed the Pats briefly after stretching drills.

-Belichick told the players there have been some great battles against Shanahan.

Funny reading the comments on this article. Pats fans saying they should bring in Shanny for Rb's coach, or Offensive Coordinator. haha. Kinda weird seeing our coach/ex coach mingle with the enemy. Now we have come full circle.

awesome, thanks for sharing!

I love shanny making the rounds and retooling for his comeback. He's putting the rest of the league on notice. Can't wait to have him back coaching some team. He's going to be reinvigorated and have some sweet new ideas...I'm sure of it!

I hope he goes the the NFC. I see the Bears/Vikes as possible landing spots depending on how their seasons go.

Seems to be visiting only the latest SB winners to incorporate whatever he can for his next HC gig. If he visits the Giants, it'd be a smart move IMO.

my favorite comment:

haha, Hoyer couldn't ever hear Shanahan... if there was such thing as a book titled 'How You Know You Are Going to be Cut from an NFL Team', within the top 5 list would have to be: "If a legendary soon-to-be Hall of Fame coach visits your camp and talks to the team, but you are too far away to even hear what he says... you are going to be cut"

Cowboys are going to be a heck of a ball club with Shanny as the HC. i really like this Camp tour shanny is going on.

Next on his schedule is the Texans camp, then Cards, and then finally Gators camp, where he will get to learn the tennats of the spread from Urban Meyer.


If i were jerry jones id be ready to fire wade within the first 5 weeks of the season, make garret an interim coach, fire him at the end, and make Shanny the next HC.

Now he just needs to visit the bucs, titans, giants, eagles, ravens and bears(?). Maybe after all of that he will realize that he needs to drop Slowick like a bad case of herpes and let someone competent run the defense all on their own without his interference.

If he brought Slowick with him though, would it really suck that bad?

Shanahan should have done the Pittsburgh/NE tour a few years ago to see how they were putting their franchises together.

I don't care what the haters say. I love and will always love Shanahan. We were two years away from Superbowl contention.

But oh well...

You go Coach.

But I thought he was the Mastermind? Why does a "Mastermind" need to go and see how others run their teams?

Face it Shanny now see's that his ways had gotten stale and he's looking to see what makes other teams better. He's a good coach that was just in one place too long.

It seemed like Mike was too entrenched with operations at Dove Valley. Being responsible for things other than X's & O's prevented him from staying ahead of the curve when it came to schemes and gameplans.

I think Mike is smart for doing what he's doing. I hope he lands in the NFC with his next head coaching gig. I know one thing for sure: he's not gonna be coaching in Oakland!

You go Coach.
3 years, at the absolute minimum.

Assuming he'd

a) Hire a DC who has a clue what he's doing.

b) Not abandon said DC's scheme after 5 games.

If you genuinely think we were going anywhere but backwards with Bob Slowik in possession of a headset on Sunday's then I'm really not sure what to tell you.

Truth is that we'd have certainly been as bad, if not worse, this year than we were last year with Shanahan in charge again. We'd have stumbled through another season of mediocre, embarrassing football and then maybe fired Slowik.

At that point, we'd have still been at least 2 years from achieving anything.

Agree with the second line of your post.
