Default Guess who got off the plane in Cabo direct from Chicago?

At 12:15 today a friend talked to Mike Shanahan on the direct flight from Chicago. My friend is a big Bears fan and he struck up a conversation with Shanny in the immigration line. He asked Mike right out if he was going to coach Chicago. All Mike would say is Chicago has a coach. My friend said Mike was very amenable and they had a pleasant conversation. He doesn't understand why McD doesn't use Hillis more.

THERE'S A Good chance the Shanahan will be reunited with Cutler.

Why else would he be coming from Chicago if not interviewing for the Bears job.

We should trade hillis to chicago. Hopefully some shanny/cutler/hillis fans would follow.

Isn't that were Shanahan is originally from? Didn't he grow up in a suburb of Chicago?

If they were actively interviewing him, it wouldn't be a secret and it wouldn't be on a busy Sunday.

Adam Shefter, who has good connections with Shanahan, said on his pregame show on KOA that Shanahan won't be coaching in Houston or in Chicago next year. Shefter said because of Kubiak Houston is out, and that Shanny also has a strong relationship with Lovey Smith. Never heard the Shanny/Smith connection before but that's what Shefter said. Adam thinks Shanny coaching Washington or another nfl team is more likely than shanny coaching houston or chicago next year.

If Angelo has any type of brain, you hire the guy who brought two super bowls to Denver and helped send Cutler to the pro bowl during only his 2nd full season as a starting QB.

If they were interviewing him then Lovie has a very solid grievance. Can't be interviewed until there is a position. Besides Baja, Travishammockery doesn't start until the offseason!

I've never heard of any Chicago pizza joint offer turkey as a topping, so I don't think Mike would go there.

You're right that has to be considered a possibility too.

This is no ruse and much of what I said before is true although I do admit to some embellishment

No need. Cutler has NFL pro bowl talent, Matt Forte would extremely benefit from Shanahan's ZBS. Chicago doesn't have great offensive linemen, but I think Kruetz could easily play another 4 to 5 years in a west coast offense. Shanahan has made a career out of turning retread offensive line into solid performers. Combine that to the fact that Jay has pretty good pocket awareness, he'll trim their sacks down with a better scheme around him.

haha. Hillis permeates every Broncos conversation.

I wonder if Shanahan misses the Broncos, if his heart is in Denver, or if he is just another professional shark

Yes, Oak Lawn. Southern Suburb.

Perhaps he still has a relationship with his family.

His 35,000 sq foot, monument to excess is in Denver....and his new restaurant.

Maybe his heart follows his wallet?

Too bad the Bears won't fire Lovie Smith
