    I'd call my family in KC to congratulate them but they probably wouldn't hear the phone over their squeals of glee.

    Damn, I just wish we could get him back to the AFC East. (sniff) I miss that man. :D

    By the way... I know it's against the rules to copy and paste a full article, but it's kinda tough to avoid when it's a single sentence.

    Shanahan is supposedly nowhere near the Chiefs' radar. Ferentz is the front runner for the job.

    And oh yeah... sucks for Herm. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! :rofl:

    Why Chiefs won't hire Shanahan | Truth&Rumors | FanNation

    They've basically been bouncing around between available head coaches. Not saying it won't be Shanny, but I really think it's going to be Ferentz. He is Pioli's guy. If anything, I can see Shanny taking at least a year off from the job. I have been wrong in the past though...

    Either one is a good choice for them. Cant wait to watch Pioli work that draft. When he trades down and locals here groan, i'll be recognizing whats going on and smiling.

    I agree. IMO having been at one place for so long, if he comes back to coaching at all, he'll take his time and wait for the right ownership for him.

    I'd like to see Shanahan there just for the KC-Denver thing, that kind of thing can be fun with ex coaches.

    Don't forget Oakland..... Shanahan would be only the Chargers away from hitting the AFC West cycle.

    Re: Herm Edwards fired.

    I'm not sure if I agree with the Chiefs hiring Shanahan. Their offense is missing some key pieces but they're one really good quarterback and a downhill runner away from being a good (not great) offense. Their offensive line is decent last time I checked.

    I would have thought Pioli would seek a defensive minded head coach since that is the way we built the dynasty here and since the Chiefs defense is in much more need of help than the Chiefs offense. That's pretty much why a Shanahan hiring does not make sense to me.

    Re: Herm Edwards fired.

    This is very interesting if true, because we know how much Shanahan loves his quarterbacks and the Chiefs don't have one. This would seem to all but guarantee that the Chiefs either draft one at #3 or make a deal for one (say, Cassel).

    This offseason, with all the former Patriots people moving all over the board as well as the Cassel situation and the numerous potential draft picks for New England, is shaping up to be very interesting indeed.

    Re: Herm Edwards fired.

    Yep, it will make for an interesting division. We also could use the AFCW not sucking next year as the AFCN plays them and a loss here or there for Baltimore or Pittsburgh could help.

    I thought Gruden would have been a decent choice in KC

    I've got to say that, while it's very early in the process for these teams, I've been far more impressed with the way that McDaniels and Pioli have begun their respective tenures than I was with Mangini in New York.

    Scott, young players, not the Chargers/Broncos...

    All the reason for me to be happy and root for the Chiefs in their respective division. Reasons why I just can't?

    By the way Adam Schefter says the ESPN report that Shanahan is going to be the Chiefs head coach this year is NOT true.

    As I post that, ESPN is hyping Sports-Center with the Shanahan to Chiefs story, this should be funny. :rofl:

    Schefter is usually right on the money, I would believe him over BSPN any day.

    As would any sane person.

    Just another case of Chris Mortensen being the worst reporter of all-time.

    I think the reports about Shanny are being brushed aside until the Rooney Rule is satisfied. They first have to interview this guy:
