You know........the dude has been here for 10 games trying to combat 10 years of poor management and equally poor player aquisition. He has two rings and a strongly positive reputation in the league as a Head Coach and a winner that is well deserved.
He deserves better than that..........

Smile Re: Analyzing Mike Shanahan at the Midway Point

I think he is doing a pretty good job. You got to think about the players, alot of these wouldn't be in the league next year. You got to give him 2 to 3 years. A few free agents(25 years and under) at bargain price and a strong draft and every thing will be better next year. Yeah the O-line isn't great, but you need weapons that threaten the defense to have a explosive offense. A he gave these over the hil guys a chance, time to clear house.

Re: Analyzing Mike Shanahan at the Midway Point

One thing this year will prove is that it's easy to look like Jim Zorn coaching even if your name is Mike Shanahan. Plus he's saddled with his inept son, Kyle, who doesn't have the knack for calling plays unless his QB is Matt Schaub, and even Schaub is losing now in Houston. Also, who shoulders the blame for turning in a top 10 defensive unit into one that's worst in the league? I've been blaming Jim Haslett, but ultimately the HC has to be responsible. Maybe next year will be better (It couldn't be worse), but we don't have too many draft choices, which means we'll be a patchwork team again.

Thanks Shanahan...you win.
I know Shanahan is supposedly trying to change the "culture" of the team in disciplining guys like Haynesworth. Yet I wish he would focus more on changing things such as trying to fit schemes into players and not the other way around; or playing worthless players (Rabach, Heyer...and before he was cut, Galloway).

Players make plays, play calls don't make plays. Kyle didn't turn into a bum over night, we just don't have the talent that he had in Houston.

Amen.
Hey, we can look forward to having the best behaved team in the NFL. At least we got that going for us. :cheeky-sm

Seriously though, the choice of players and where they are playing is still very frustrating.

Re: Analyzing Mike Shanahan at the Midway Point

Mike Shanahan has shown that he has not missed a beat since Denver 2008. That means good and bad things. The offense, despite being horrible, showed at least some signs of life against the Giants, which is better than what Zorn's O display against them. He also has a knack for finding offensive gems from the APPARENT scrapheap.
However, old dogs can't learn new tricks, and fielding a defense that isn't Swiss cheese is a new trick he can't learn. The philosophy shift was necessary, the switch to the 3-4 was unnecessary. He also makes questionable veteran signings like Ron Dayne, Galloway, etc.

Also, be afraid if Rogers doesn't come back here. He drafted for "need" at CB in Denver, and those corners did not pan out at all. He had to trade away Tatum and Bell and George Foster(he did get rid of two busts) to get Dre Bly.

He deserves no more than a D at this point. Right now, I give him an F.

I'd be very surprised if Rogers doesn't return
