Not so bad the first 2 or 3 years after Elway, but then they REALLY started to go downhill. I lived in Colorado Springs at the time. I heard the talk radio around there. Noone thought Shanahan deserved the job after 2004. He completely screwed that defense. He has shown nothing but the same tendencies here, and I just hope that our stud QB can do everything in his power to get us to a superbowl in spite of a HC and OC that prefers to have him run a dozen designed runs a game against linebackers that eat glass for breakfast. I really hope his plan is better than that, cause Griffin is the ONLY reason we were even competitive in any of the games this year. I doubt anyone will attribute any of our success to any schemes or gameplan. I just hope the young fella stays healthy.
Word to this, among my family in Denver Shanahan is practically a four letter word. Elway on the other hand is still seen as THE MAN.

Normally I would say Rex is blowing smoke out his @$$. However, this particular comment is so insane I think someone actually blew smoke IN his @$$. And it went straight to his brain.

So try again after you reread what I typed because even though you quoted me, you didnt respond to what I had typed.

Editing to add: Stud qb... bad defenses... Kinda sounds like Belichik the last few years
Also worth noting the AFC West division was putrid for most of Shanahan's tenure in Denver. If reg season wins are what you want, well I still don't see how Mike is your guy lol, but he's a dud in the playoffs since Elway retired. Point is sure he won reg season games in Denver but any Bronco fan will tell you, rather adamantly in my family's case, that those were not...competitive...teams.

Also, how on earth do you compare Belichick to Shanahan???? Bill took that team to the Superbowl and nearly won, whereas Mike can't even muster a winning season.

Mooby and Gary84clark... Please pay attention to the /Sarcasm at the end of my post next time when claiming that I called Gabbert a Stud QB...
That it has. As a fellow lover of sarcasm, that's my bad. Party foul on me, won't happen again.

Please enlighten us as to other Shanahan successes in Washington?

Seriously, SS, I love you man but a "newcomer" to the board might suspect your on the team's payroll.

Could you ask your family in Denver what they think of Dan Reeves? The guy that couldnt win with Elway yet seems to be considered a good coach by most people, including what Denver fans I have talked to.

I've heard em compare Reeves to Marty Schottenheimer (spelling) as a guy who could see talent and build a hell of a roster but not see it through to the end. For my own perspective I felt like Schotteheimer got in his own way come the playoffs...maybe similar with Reeves?

I didnt compare Shanny to Belichick. I compared the comment that the Skins have a good offense and bad defense to what the Patriots have had lately. Of course Belichick never wins anything without a massive lucky 6th round pick that no one, including Belichick, thought would amount to much of anything. Tom Brady says hi...

And the putrid AFC west was in SB's and AFC championship games with former Redskins QB Gannon as a Raider. If thats Putrid, then we are back to needing 20 undefeated seasons and 20 SB's in a row to consider anything Shanny does here a success.

Re: Around the NFL...Week 4 Style

As far as CLE goes if you dont think they are on par with us as far as sucking goes lets make a apples to apples comparison. How did each team fare against CIN?

They suck and we suck. IMO CLE seems like the better two when comparing the two.

So the guy that couldnt break through with that STUD QB is not a four letter word, but the guy who broke through, not once, but twice is a four letter word. Interesting...

Something else happened for Denver to hate Shanny this bad. Did he cuss out fans and in general be a douche there or something?

A lot folks say it was Terrell Davis was the major factor for those SB.

Which would be a Shanny 6th round pick in Denver. Which should mean they hate Reeves and love Shanny.

It's just stupid to say Mike wasn't a huge reason for those two super bowls. I mean BB didn't do shit in Cleveland so does that mean he wouldnt be a good coach without Brady?

He did take em to the playoffs once. He also won a boatload of games the year brady got hurt n cassell played. That being said i cant stand the guy. But i do respect him.
