    Not a lot of people saw that coming, even with the epic collapse.

    Wow! Broncos fire Shanahan

    Pretty amazing move on the surface, but not when considering his team's performance over the last few seasons.

    Pete Shepherd just announced on WEEI that Denver fired head coach Mike Shanahan.

    That's pretty surprising, but man, they SUCKED this year. Don't be surprised if he becomes the next hottest thing on the market.

    No kidding. I'll bet he has an interview with the Jets within 2 weeks.

    Crap, you beat me to it. I was just thinking the same thing.

    That's ok, we're headed towards a plethora "sign so-and-so" threads too...

    He was fired with years remaining on his contract, which means he's being bought out. Wouldn't surprise me if he takes a year off, at least, vs. jumping right into another job. I'm hoping both he and Cowher pass on the Green Beans.

    The Jets now have two shots not to screw it up. Let's see.

    Disable Jersey

    Jets want Cowher. Why? Because Cowher will sell the expensive PSLs for the new stadium that are presently going begging. Woody Johnson will pay really BIG bucks for a name HC.

    Along the same lines that's why Cassel will NOT go to the Jets. Favre is a big name. Sells seats. And yes, Jets fans ARE football ignorant.

    Stunner, although they have been struggling. As we play @ Denver next year, I am happy with this move :)

    Great coach-I'm sure he'll land another job pretty quickly. I'm not sure who Denver thinks they're going to get who's better?

    I'd say, if Kansas City gets their head out of their ass and fires Herm, Shanahan would be a great fit there.
