I'm arguing with your assertion that because, probably bitter, Broncos fans in Denver believe Shanahan has an MO to alienate players...then it must be true.

But JoeRedskin, for example, gives another opinion...then he's just a homer?

That was so crazy!!!! Couldn't believe the Tebow mania but I'll say that a big part of it was the proximity to Focus on the Family and a lot of the Christian Right that jumped on that bandwagon. Most of the broncos fans I know didn't think Tebow was anything but a short term sideshow. Some of them even said it wasn't so much broncos fans fanning the Tebow flame but fareweather types who were really just religious and making it a football thing.

None of my Denver folks miss Tebow in other words. On the other hand some of them are already complaining there's no long term plan at QB with Manning in his twilight, pisses me off.

Well, I really don't get much sense of bitterness from them. Shanny is more of an afterthought and how it usually comes up is chiding about how awful he's been in Washington. But that's really the norm outside Skins world, shanny gate last year is still the thing most talked about. And a lot who feel bad for RG.

Denver fans hating Shanny would be like Redskin fans hating Joe Gibbs. It amazes me that I only hear this babble from the same two people.

Re: Redskins Try Out 18 Players

Really could care less what Denver fans think of MS. This is a different era, different place, different GM, different owner.

Unless they endured 10 yrs of Cerrato and bad decisions, then they can't talk crap. MS/Allen are 100X better then what we did have. But... They don't get this ship righted soon I can see this being just another HC who has come here and failed cause 5 yrs is the longest Snyder has given anyone.

Maybe Gruden then? lol.

You must know a lot of Broncos fans out there in WV.

In all seriousness though you're missing the point. Some broncos fans don't think Mike had a lot to do with those SBs. Elway and a lot of the talent was already there, and Elway has since proven to be a much better team builder than Mike and since Elway is doing it in Denver, Mike is more of an afterthought.

You can make a good argument Elway never would have won those Lombardis without Mike, mostly because of the running game Mike brought to Denver, but immediately you should realize the offense we see in Washington hardly resembles what Mike did in Denver. That team ran the ball effectively almost every game and used it to set up big plays in the air. Aside from last season, which again looks more and more the result of a gimick offense, Mike hasn't put together a dominant running game here.

I think Mike did walk into a perfect situation in Denver. The stars aligned for those two years. Since then, he's been mediocre (the AFC west was pathetic for a lot of mikes tenure in Denver) to flat bad in Washington. Last year th stars aligned such that the division imploded. It's not much better this year and mike has a chance to take advantage of it again, but anyone who says this is a serious team is on serious narcotics.

Re: Redskins Try Out 18 Players

so if this were NE, you'd be the bitter browns fan complaining about how belichick has no idea how to be a head coach and should be fired right?

kraft must feel like an idiot for giving such a has-been a second chance... if only you could have been there to save him from himself, maybe they could have won something by now.

There is a phrase for fans like that. And that phrase is "simple-minded idiots."

Schlereth has actually been very quiet about Shanahan, as have most players and coaches. The shit show in Washington isn't something most want to comment on.
Worst-run organization to Division Champ in 3 years is a failure?

Re: Redskins Try Out 18 Players

@ Goat.

Alllll of this started when you asserted that MS has a knack for alienating players and coaches. I asked for names and you cited one guy in 20 years. Since then you have slipped back into your generic criticism of MS, your reliance on a small sample of Denver fans as and your assertion that last year's success was due to a "gimmick".

As to the first point, I asked for examples b/c, despite having an ego the size of a small country, with the exception of Haynesworth in Washington and Plummer in Denver, every player I have seen speak about MS has said he was fair and that no one was ever "given" a spot b/c of their draft spot or their free agent contract. In fact, outside of one or two, I have never read a disparaging remark about MS from one of his players and have read nothing but praise from his former players. The assertion that he has alienated players or coaches (again, Alex Gibbs being the exception to the rule) seemed to me to be one of your unsubstantiated "I talk to Denver oil men" statements (b/c the fan base is always THE most accurate assessment of any situtation). On this first point I stand by my assessment of your statement - one or two players in 20 years who can't get along with a coach is not a "knack" for alienating players. Your assertion is baseless rumour and typical of your "MS = Bad" assessment.

As to the rest, there are lots of legitimate reasons for critiquing MS time here. At the same time, the assertion that last year's NFC East was just luck based on a gimmick offense and was divorced from MS's coaching is just such ignorant BS that it does not warrant discussion.

Re: Redskins Try Out 18 Players

I'm with you Joe, I do not believe the argument has any factual basis either.


I've noticed that the majority of people who use the word "alienate" are usually fishing for anything they can find to criticize someone. The fall-back route is usually "alienation" accusations. It's a popular buzzword in the media and politics.


We're "disenfranchising" Native Americans from enjoying football too because we're "alienating" them by our lack of "diversity" in our identify. We need to get some "gravitas" and learn to "coexist" with the "progressive" population. We just lack "awareness" and "sensitivity" about "racial equality".
