Re: Should Mike Shanahan Be Canonized?

I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the idea of giving a guy a five year contract, swearing to be patient knowing the job may take five years, and then wanting to fire him halfway thru his contract because the job isn't done yet.

Sorry. The game was rather a bore. Sure, a couple of long passes... but, really, who would enjoy play calling like that?

Personally I want to see progress at the midway point - otherwise I want to cut my losses and start fresh while my prize posession - RG-3 is still a spring chicken. Maybe not your take on the situation but its not mind boggling that the 5 win seasons are making people wonder if it was a good hire is it? This all however is a discussion for another thread. This thread is about how we are going to honor Mike for that friggin big win today against the birds! We manage a win on turkey day and couple that with a Gints loss to the Packers and the Redskins are playing for the division lead on MNF against the Giants! - AWESOME

Can we re-open the phoenix? This one kind of fizzled out.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan Be Canonized?

This is thread of the year.. Did you see his post game speech? I mean, people say he doesn't have an impact in the locker room just show their bleeding ignorance. He is a motivator..

Can't help but like Shanahan. At least a little bit.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan Be Canonized?

I really wanted to bump the "Should Mike be fired thread" but it's locked. Would of loved to re-live all those glorious opinions from the torch lighters who now are the same people rocking Mike Shanahan T-shirts

Re: Should Mike Shanahan Be Canonized?

Dare I say Shanahan could get some coach of the year consideration if we win out and take the east.

I wouldn't mind that if it was someone like Jim Zorn who we were talking about or Spurrier but with Shanahan it's a different story. I mean I'm not ready to give up dime a dozen 1,000 yard rushers and a blocking scheme that makes Offensive Lineman.... overachieve.

On top of that theres the roster turnover which happens with virtually any coaching change but seeing the troubles with Denvers offense after Shanny left makes me more hesitant to pull the plug. As many Denver fans will tell you their offensive line went from being a top 5 unit to a liability with virtually the same personnel in less then a year.
