While Shanahan is a proven failure as a personnel guy, there's no book on Cowher, since he's always relied on a good GM to provide him with players. He could have been great having final say, he could have been as bad as Shanahan, or he could have been worse.
We need someone to help improve the offense as well as being a respected coach, which is Shanahan. It seems that if you are getting your facts from Wilbon then you are using other opinions to form this garbage you spew. I wondered why you never made sense, and now it's very clear. please tell me what Cowher would bring that Shanny doesn't, I'll wait until you email Wilbon and get your answer.

Cowher is going to be lucky if any team wants him if he doesn't come back soon.

I expressed my opinion almost 24 hours before wilbons article. I've already expressed my thoughts on why cowher is superior and there's no need to restate them. You can read them for yourself.

No matter what is said in press conferences, Snyder is reserving final say for himself and he'll be just as involved as ever.
I haven't seen a single move yet outside of the coaching hire. This isn't exactly a new thing when a team wants somebody; other than Cowher who do you think that we should have looked at?

You don't always need your number 1 want.. I'd think being a Skins fan would've taught you that by now.

So are you implying that if your favorite, Cowher, was being hired and introduced today that you'd have a different opinion of the 'process'? You're all over the place with your quarrels with the hire. First it was Shananhan was nothing without Elway, then it was his record, now it's the process.

Are you a sommelier because you sure seem to know a lot about whine.
lol great points

The Broncos will still owe Shanahan approximately $3.5 million per year in 2010 and 2011 to essentially have him coach the Redskins. Then again, Bowlen will save roughly $3.5 million each of the next two years now that their former coach is no longer unemployed.

The fact Shanahan settled for about the same money he made with the Broncos and turned down a more lucrative offer from the Buffalo Bills should quell speculation he was trying to sell his services to the highest bidder. Shanahan's primary goal in his quest for his third head coaching job was to find a team with a vacancy that had the best chance to win the Super Bowl.

I like to hear that Shanny wanted to be here and wasn't looking for just the money.
that's pretty cool to hear

BHA, I've got your back on Cowher. If we were going to get a "big name," he was my preference. His previous teams were more consistently competitive than Shanny's previous squads and that appeals to me. Plus I dreamed of partnering him with Jimmy Raye, who would do Allen's job.

I don't know about the rest. BA, MS, and Snyder have been friends and spoken informally for years. Certainly Snyder, not Allen, chose Shanny weeks ago from the team's point of view. But Shanny also chose us. It was a mutual agreement among friends.

There was a day when such a transition was impossible from Snyder. Even if this transition does not live up to its promise, Snyder FINALLY showed at least some recognition of the right way to do FO things.
