He'd have an open checkbook, but at what price? I wonder if Shanahan wants to work for a guy like Snyder at this stage in his career.

I hope he makes a better choice than that.

I've always figured it would be either Washington or Dallas... what other owners are going to throw 10+ million a year at a coach.

Snyder wants to hire the guy who raped him on a few trades. It's understandable. What's the clinical term for it again, where the victom identifies with the perpatrator?

that is the perfect place for him. if he can get Washington even slightly competitive in the NFC East he will become a god to that teams fanbase

he needs a situation with Snyder or Jones who will give him control like he had in Denver, where his only superior was the owner.

I would love this. A few of my good friends are Cowboys fans and they want Shanahan bad. I would love to have him beat up on them a couple times a year. I won't be able to root for him if he goes to the Cowboys.

I'd like to see him back in SF. Followed him when I lived up there before he was our coach, and always thought the city embraced him.

You're probably thinking of Stockholm syndrome... victim identifies with or falls in love with captors.

Oh God. If he ended up with the Cowboys or Deadskins, it'd be hard to continue to like him.

It's amazing what a rumor of the Bills wanting you for their HC can do

I hated Chuckie when he was with the faiders, But that superbowl beating he laid on them turned me into a fan of his.

Shanahan could really get back into the groove if he really decided to forgo the GM responsibilities, and went back to full time coaching. Glads it's the NFC.

At least he'll have a RB to trade for some picks or something.

I would love to see Shanny with the Redskins, he could pull a Mangini and trade for a few players like Scheffler and Hamilton and he will be off our books so Bowlen will have more money to sign Kuper, Marshall and Dumervil - it is all good.

Marshall will probably take 80% of the available funds to retain, so say goodbye to everyone else.

As long as he stays away from Jerry Jones and Al Davis.....he should be alright.

I hate Redskins fans... Hoggets seriously... though I guess pigs and the capital makes sense these days... never mind.

Yeah I'm all for Shanahan in the NFC. I do NOT want to see him in the AFC one bit.

The problem I see with Jerry Jones and Shanny going to Dalls was the fall out Jones and Jimmy Johnson had. We all recall how Jones out right fired J. Johnson after having won Jones two consecutive Super Bowls and turning the Cowboys from a 1-15 team to eventual back-to-back SB Champs. It was Jimmy Johnson that engineered the 24 player deal for Hershel Walker. Johnson took all those draft picks and turned Dallas into winners. And what does Jerry Jones do.....he Fires Jimmy Johnson over a spat of egos!

Point is, can Shanny trust Jerry Jones? We all know Jones is a hands on mettlesome owner and has to be in the limelight alongside the HC......I don't think Shanny would like that environment. Shanny has vision of Jerry Jones firing him after he returns Dallas back to the top of the NFL as well.

Working for Jerry Jones could equal sleeping with a Rattle Snake.

Why would we give up Scheffler?
