Doesn't it strike you as odd that, in that report, The Chin called Allen, rather than the other way around? That report seems fishy to me.

I think Cowher misread the market for him and now he is calling around to see what possibilities may be out there at this point.

We've all been screaming for a 'football guy' which Allen clearly is. We clearly need a powerful, respected head coach, which Shanahan clearly is. Look, Snyder is going to be involved at some level. Get used to it or get over it. I'm choosing to believe that he's going to let Shanahallen do their thing and not micro-manage them.

If I'm proven wrong then blast me for being naive but the negative nellies who will find something wrong with everything the franchise does are really annoying.

Paintrain:

I think you got it right. Allen/Shannahan will be a more competent "football pair" at the top of the organization than has been here since the departure of Bobby Beathard at the end of the 1980s.

I am willing to suspend my disbelief that Danny Boy will step out of the way for a while and let these guys try to put some order into the chaos that is this team. Allen said in his presser that the new coach - - presumably but not yet certainly Shannahan - - has to be able to get the players already in the locker room to perform at levels they have never performed before. That means lots of these guys are going to be coming back. That means Danny Boy isn't going to go nuts in an uncapped year and try to buy up half the league. For the recrod: That's a good thing.

That's how i interpretted it. Cowher really should have returned to coaching last year. There look to be very few openings this year and as the head coaching vacancies are much more limited.

That was exactly my point. Allen should have been the one calling The Chin. The fact that he didn't (combined with history) makes me feel Allen is just doing Snyders bidding. - which is fishy.

It could just be an erroneous report and Cowher is no more interested in the job than he was before. If thats the case, then Shanahan is the best we can get.

Why else would he call?

Read the thing about the Bills job too. Lucky Bills.

Perhaps Cowher is interested in one of our assistants? Like SS said, he is meeting with the Bills today. I think this is his second round of talks with them. Maybe he is asking about the availbility of one of our coaches that is currently under contract?

The last I heard, it was no extention, but he can coach out the last year of his contract.

Could have been various reasons

-Following up on our conversation just wanted to let you know I'm not interested for sure

-How much money are we talking (so he could use that as leverage elsewhere)

-Did you see Brothers and Sister last night? Holy shit I wasn't expecting that to happen

-Look I'm thinking of taking the Bills job and I'm putting my staff together. I know you've worked with so and so. What can you tell me about him?

Right. And Fox might still say no to that.

Re: Snyder Hires Shanahan Not the GM

Cowher calling to ask about some of our staff seems more likely than discussing the vacant HC position. Me may be interested in Gray, Polermo, or someone else.


Also, news reports also revealed the fact that half of what was wrong between Shanahan and the Bills job was that Shanahan wanted the Bills to bring in Allen as the GM with him. Well DS got wind of that one, probably from talking with Shanahan himself, and went in and hired Allen in order to get Shanahan. We effectively hired Shanahan around week 13.

Re: Snyder Hires Shanahan Not the GM

Sounds like Allen is involved to me:

Mike Shanahan and Washington Redskins working on contract - ESPN

Quote:
Allen had interviewed Shanahan via phone Monday morning, a source close to the situation told Schefter. The Redskins and Shanahan reportedly began talks last month, a day after Allen was hired.
