Default mCd's scrubs vs Shanny's scrubs

Which coach will leave behind more players who don't make it on to another pro-football squad after getting cut.

Shanny set the bar pretty high but mCd, in his infinite wisdom, made a trade for Voltron and he drafted a dude who was arrested for teh Rape so it could be a closer race than it appears.

Shanahan. Half the team never played again. That was pretty bad.

For as much heat as I took for sticking to my guns about looking at the glass half full I am going to get as much mileage I can.

BTW it is a valid question, look at the roster.

The Rams have Sam Bradford starting, obviously, and veteran A.J. Feeley as the backup. Last year they had Thad Lewis as the third string quarterback, and many fans are hoping he can develop into a possible wildcat option, but that will take some time.

Pott will compete with Lewis for the third string job. The advantage he had over Lewis is that he is 6'5" and 222 pounds, and is more of a pure passer.

The short and quick passes he used at Texas Tech is particularly appealing, since the Rams run an offense that uses short and intermediate routes.

Mmm hmm... and how many of them were PS guys? How many were at the end of their career anyway?

It's like holding Buckhalter against McDaniels. It was a better signing than I expected it to be... but anyone think he's gonna play again?

Look at our roster and probably 20-40% of the names you won't even know:

http://www.denverbroncos.com/team/roster.html

Cut them, most won't play again, and we can have another adorable presser by Xanders praising how well he and Fox work together!

The deciding factor is whether Fox feels it's an important PR move to cut crap that can't play just to replace it with crap that can't play.

i am ot arguing some were never going to play anyway or others were done. but when roughly 35 players that were released by a new regime are let go and only 1 of them finds work afterwards, there was a massive cluster**** on the team the year prior.

although looking back at that fact, Shanahan was doing an incredible coaching job with basically nothing on that team.

Yeah, I'd totally agree if that were true.

But it's not true.

Not even ****ing close.

sorry i overestimated a bit. it was 29 players who were released or waived by McDaniels that were on the SHanahan roster the year prior.

of them only
Jamie Winborn - has played 8 games after release from Denver
Marquand Manuel - no longer in NFL
Niko Koutouvides - ST in Tampa
Dre Bly - no longer in NFL after 1 season with 49ers
Mike Leach - still LS in the league
Brett Kern - punting in Tennessee
Jack Williams - can't find much on him only played 1 game for Detroit in 2009 and is still on their roster
Joshua Bell - played in Green Bay for 4 games and then nothing

so of the 29 released or waived 8 of them played again. of the 8, 3 are no longer in the league, 3 are ST players in new cities, and 2 have had limited playing time after Denver in their new cities.

I would rather have the guys that are out of the NFL. We allowed less points with them when it was all said and done.

Just at a first glance. WTF are Cutler and Crowder doing on that list? Did you forget the point?

Want to take a look at a lot of guys from McD that will be gone really fast?
Lance Ball
Correll Buckhalter
Jeff Byers
Stanley Daniels
Britt Davis
Mario Haggan
Steven Hauschka
Nate Jones
Chevis Jackson
Lonnie Paxton
Brady Quinn
Lee Robinson
Cassius Vaughn
David Velkune
LenDale White
Matt Willis
Kyle Orton

Not all of those guys will be gone this year, but a lot of them will be out of football like a lot of those Shanny guys people bring up. Yes, a lot of guys are out of football from that 2008 squad. That happens with teams, especially ones that suffer loads of injuries like we did that year. 7 RB's on the IR, remember that folks? That means we had to sign an extra 5 RB's out of our ass to field a team that year.

Swing and a miss.

Of course they didn't. Shanahan was a vastly superior game day coach. But that's not the point of the thread.
