It is probably the best possible outcome at this point because I highly doubt that our next coach will not have a super bowl ring.

I don't think Shannahan is the best GM but it would seem a WC guy would bring continuity on some level as far as the offense.

Now watch the coach bring in a 3-4 guy and our defense goes to hell...

Odds on favorite for sure. Lock? Not sure about that. But maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part

Re: Our next coach??

A month ago when Dallas was playing well and the pillsbury dough boy seemed likely to stay on as HC in dallas - Shanahan probably did seem like a near lock. but If Dallas fires Phillips, I think all bets are off. As disgusting a thought as it may be to imagine, any skins fan wanting Shananan should be rooting for Dallas to win atleast one playoff game.

Don't assume Dallas will make it. This is December.

Also don't assume Shanahan will be an option in Dallas. I was talking to a friend in the Dallas media recently about that and he said that Jerry is less likely to do that since he's got lots of money/debt tied up in the stadium and is not inclined to pay a coach $8-10 million like Shanahan will command. Also, he may not want to give up as much control as he did to Parcells, which Shanahan will also command.

I don't assume they will - i'm just saying if you (general you, not you specifically) want Shanahan here, then you better hope they make some noise.

Excellent point. However, didn't jones take a "back seat" when he had Parcells?

Good point on the stadium. Hadn't thought about that. I still think he's a favorite though there. With San Diego about to give (unless they already did) Norv a contract extension, I think Dallas, DC, and Houston are the favorites. In that order

You think Jason stays if Shanny comes here?

No idea. I mean Shanahan did pass on the chance to draft Campbell back in 2005. But that was probably more so because of what he got in return.

I would guess that if they are in a spot at the end of the year to draft Bradford (and maybe Clausen) in the first round then maybe they will let Campbell go. But I don't think they will be, and they will keep Campbell.

As I mentioned in this thread, or maybe another (I can't remember now), that Campbell's agent and the Redskins FO are allegedly secretly talking about an extension. I don't know if that's true. Alls I know is the last time I heard something like that from the same source it was about Betts getting a contract extension....and a few weeks later he did.

But it doesn't make much sense then for the team to be talking about extending Campbell if Shanahan isn't on board with the team, but might be soon.

What happened to the love affair with Jason Garrett? How quickly Jerah forgets.

Seriously though, Garrett's star has fallen but if Shanahan isn't the guy in Dallas it wouldn't surprise me if Garrett is. And if Shanahan is, Garrett I'm sure will be a head coach somewhere else in 2010.

Re: Our next coach??

I really hope Shanahan doesn't come here. How many defensive coordinators did he go through in Denver? How is it that he leaves, Cutler is right behind him, in comes some punk kid who only has a job cause of Tom Brady, he brings in Kyle Orton who stinks, also brings in Mr. Vanilla Ice Cream and they're most likely going to make the playoffs with an improved defense. Now how does that happen? Shanahan will fit in well here cause he's always going to go for the quick fix free agents just like he did in Denver. And in the end that's what got him fired.

I agree with you there. I could see him getting promoted in Dallas if Jones wants to be cheap - he couldnt be any worse than Phillips - but I don't see him getting serious consideration anywhere else. If i'm not mistaken, the guy wasnt even interviewed for any of the HC vacancies in the last offseason. Additionally, if he were really "all that," Parcells would have hired him instead of Sparano in Miami.
