You can't throw teams up for a positive and not expect the same negative reaction. You cannot compare one team to another. Coaches go from one team to another and be successful, and sometimes don't.

It's not a fair analogy to assume if we dump Shanny and pick up all these available winning coaches on the market that we will win a SB.

I'm not a Shanny lover, but he said 5 years and i'll give him his 5 years.

Maybe we don't need to go after a big name coach?

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I can't believe people are asking for Shanny's pink slip already. Look at the Browns. Have they made bad decisions to led to their streak of sub-mediocrity? Sure. But what else is going against them? Any time they get a coach, they get fired and start from scratch with a new scheme. Look at the best teams consistently in the league. They build from the ground up, with a consistent focus and scheme that doesn't change from year to year. Everyone is always looking for the next "great coach" when things don't work out in the short term. Well who is to say the next hire will be any more competent than the one that was just fired? And all you have accomplished by doing that if they new hire is not successful is blowing up any continuity the team had.

This team has been bad for a long time, with a ton of terrible personnel decisions by Cerrato. We aren't going to turn things around with a snap of the fingers folks. Shanahan has a winning pedigree, he just needs time to get the building blocks in place. Our defense is atrocious this year. That will obviously be addressed this off season. We have had a lot of injuries and have not had the depth to replace them, again due to poor personnel decisions of the past leaving huge holes in our roster. Everyone needs to chill the heck out and pull for the team to get pulled together, not pulled apart.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I was surprised to see it was Phillips. Geez oh man Phillips took over a team loaded with talent. The last time a coach walked into that kind of situation was...holy sh!t Mike Shanahan in Denver?! Mike is a better coach than Wade. Makes me feel lucky we have him lmao

Did you see Parcells went 10-6 in his first year, and Dallas was 5-11 the year before?

Parcells led the cowboys to the playoffs with Quincy Carter at qb

December 2010 called, it wants its argument back.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I am so disgusted and disappointed that at this point, I couldn't tell you if I'd be opposed or happy to see Mike Shanahan go. I understand both arguments for and against. I'm just at this point where I'm tired of the bad luck, bad choices in coaching, bad choices in players. At some point you'd think things would change.

Yeah, and I see he was 0-1 playoff wise there. 34-30 overall regular season. Yawn. What are we talking about again?

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I think in the end, Mike's downfall (if there is one) will be his decision to go with Haslett as his DC. This was by far his biggest mistake. (not even the McNabb trade) Not sure what the **** he was thinking bringing in a guy who didn't want to run that particular defense, nor hadn't ran it in 11 years. You mean in that year off he couldn't find somebody worth a damn to run this defense? Romeo? Phillips? I know Zimmer was his first choice, but god damn there had to be somebody else.

Becoming a serious football team. First, you start with a serious coach. Then...

I agree. He does have to answer for that and it's the biggest reason we're going nowhere this year.
