    So its a return of the Belichick/Shanahan coach meeting,its been a few years since the two great minds meet again.

    Without looking into it more,I beleive that Shanahan is the only coach in the past decade to have had the better of Bill Belichick to which I believe he holds a 5-3 edge in wins between the two

    I still today beleive that when it comes to intelligent game planning and smart Head Coaches,Shanahan is second in line to the way Belichick handles Xs and Os and football intelligence

    I bet the two will be discussing on what a waste Haynesworth was to both teams sometime this week ;)

    So Shanahan when in Denver did have some good games against the Pats with the likes of Orton,Plummer at QB so this time its Grossman who is in the same type of quarterback.

    What do you see in this weekend's matchup between a team heading to the playoffs and a team likely to be picking a top 10 draft pick? - Do you expect a dogfight or an easy win?

    I found a relevant article for this topic: (Its an oldie but goodie.)

    Pats-Broncos history lesson - Boston.com

    There were also three other matchups between the coaches:

    1/14/06- DEN 27 NE 13 "The Ben Watson game"

    9/24/06- DEN 17 NE 7 (of note, leading WR was Doug Gabriel)

    10/12/08- NE 41 DEN 7 (of note, Shanahan fired later that year)

    So you're right OP, since 2000, Shanahan is 5-3 vs. BB. I would caution a guess that no other head coach has been more successful.

    All games against Shanahan were fun because we knew that across the field was just as an intelligent,sneaky,clever and knowledgable coach in Mike and he still is even though he has had to deal with players that do not play as well as they should, considering the talent level on that team.

    My favorite 'Chess' game between the two coaches in the last decade was the MNF game at Denver when the Pats used an intentional safety to win the game,that game showed that Belichick was indeed a genius with the chance he took in a game we might have well lost in the 14-2 season of 2003.

    I really wish that the Redskins had beaten the Jets yesterday...not only because the Jets might have been close to elimination,but that Shanahan is one of those coaches that rarily loses 2 games back to back games at home.

    Rex Grossman loves to go deep. Hopefully he lays out a few ducks.

    Shanahan's Redskins are not Shanahan's Broncos.
