    Too good of a mind not to be a HC.

    i suspect he will be a head coach somewhere in 2009...

    if for some reason he is not, it brings up an interesting question

    while i would love for him to run our offense, is it worth it to hire a guy who in all likelihood is one and done? we would have to change our offense this offseason and next offseason. i dont know if that is the healthiest thing for our offense

    No way he wont be hired. If he would have had a better GM, I bet the Broncos could have been something. Sometimes coaches try to take too much control, it costs them. I'd love for him to be our OC. Never in a million years.

    He is only 56, so he can go around for a while yet, or has he said he will retire at some age?

    Sometimes Head Coaches are happy to go back to being an assistant, if they fell they have achieved everything they wanted to, which he has with the SB wins. It depends how much of a task he wants or if he wants an oceans 11 scenario.

    Hes obviously been there before and he could have almost any job he wanted.

    I guess that road is long and windy and we don't know what lies down it for McDaniels, Shanahan and the patriots.

    But i think it would be a good fit.

    #12 Jersey

    He would do a good job but I doubt this will happen.

    I saw parts of the press conference. Called each other something like best friends, and Shanahan called Bowlen the best owner in sports. Both choking up. Kind of sad really. Comparatively speaking, if, in a mad world, it came down to Irsay firing Dungy, I would feel nothing.

    No Jersey Selected

    I would love to see Shanahan here as an offensive coordinator but I do not think that will happen. I predict he ends up with the Cowboys.
