Default What are the chances Shanahan doesn't coach next year.

he has had a chance to see there is life outside of football 24/7 and Bowlen will give him 7 million to stop and smell the roses. besides it has to be sobering to see what McD has been able to do with his old team.

Poll coming;

100% he won't coach next year.

i think he'll do TV work next year and then wait for the ideal HC opening.

I don't know exactly what the language is, but he has an obligation to find employment in order to keep getting the $7 million from Bowlen. I don't know if it has to be head coaching employment.

I bet Cutler has called him more than Daniel Snyder at this point. The rat will be in Chi-town with his boy lover. While Denver will have their high first round draft selection and Franchise Orton!

I would be shocked if Shanny would ever agree to that. Probably not even legally enforceable.

Not guaranteed. Orton is a FA. Wouldn't it be insane if he stuck it to Denver to be paid like a top 5 QB in the league? ha ha. What to do, what to do?

Shanny will be employed the day the Season ends if not before! Rumors he goes to Washington before the season to get the jump on the Competition..not sure how credible that would be. Dallas is the most likely spot and this next year..Shannahan and Jones have a relationship already and would be the best fit, ala Jones and Johnson!

Personally, i think that Shanny should sit out and collect his 7 million. That would be awesome and to be honest, he deserves it for his run in Denver.

Unfortunately Lovie is going to off himself and I can definitely see Mike in Chi-Town or Dallas next year.

They will be winning very soon in that scenario.

For sure...100%...why else was he visiting all the winning programs training camps? You wouldn't be doing that if you were just going to sit out for another year....

I get this sickly feeling that Shanny will take the San Diego job once the team bounces Norv Turner. Dallas and Washington have meddlesome owners. San Diego will give Mike the power he wants, and probably the money too.

Well that would just pit McD vs. Shanny yearly. Funny how that would work out.

McDaniels has pretty much exposed Shanny for the "has been" he is.

Still, there are a couple of owners who like "has beens".

To go to SD AJ Smith will have to be out too and Spanos won't get rid of his buttbuddy! Shannahan and Jones are already tight, and Snyder will have to out bid Jones for shanahan

I think he does.

BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUT...

If I'm Shanny I'm just kicking it back till my contracts runs out. 100 hour work days is not worth it when you're getting paid to do nothing.

Just relax.

I don't want Shanny in the AFC. NFC would be perfect for me though, next stop Chicago or Dallas.

A) He's a restricted free agent.
$2.562 million =First- and third-round
$2.017 million =First-round
$1.417 million =Second-round

No team will give up First & Third. If they do then Denver turned Cutler into 3 1st round selections!

B) Orton is not a dummy. He knows it's Josh McDaniels that has turned his career around. Orton will want respectable cash, but he knows the longer he stays with McDaniels the better.


Stop being a downer.

I just don't think this is necessary, or true. It looks like Mike became complacent here, but I thought he was on track and would've drafted defense out the kazoo this last April. The Slowik loyalty remains baffling to me, but I seriously question the 'has been' tag. We'll see how he does with his next gig and I'd bet it will be very successful.

Where ever he goes Slowick will follow and that cancels out anythign Shanny can do on offense.

I'd love to see a Shanny team go head to head against McDaniels. Sorry Shanny was good, but now it's McDaniels.

He does indeed.

Bowlen will be liable for the difference in Shanny's new salary versus the 7mill for which Bowlen is contractually obligated.

Nice deal.

Actually I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up in Carolina or Jacksonville. Both haven't been mentioned but they have strong running games, veteran defense and good young lines that would fit Shanahan's offense

Bowlen still owes Shanny 7 million per year over the next two years so he isnt' hurting for money. There's no rush for Shanny to return next season should he not get the situation he's looking for.

Teams will be scouring the coaching backgrounds of young assistants hoping to find another McD.

Copy-cat league, they'll want younger and cheaper if they can find a candidate.
