Shanahan was so good that since his Golden Cow John Elway retired he has won exactly ..........1 PLAYOFF game. He was crap as a GM too. Lets sign the entire cleveland defensive line and see how good they will be in Denver.....yeah how did that work out. Oh hey how bout that Maurice Clarett signing.... or wait wait how about that Javon Walker deal? Shanahan's claim to fame is his zone blocking O-line that makes 1000 yard backs out of average running backs. Other than that he's an average coach. Oh and he hasnt had double digit wins since gary Kubiack left for Houston.

Is McDaniels the answer, I doubt it, but hell Shanahan is no GOD himself!

Well since this is HH's thread, I'm gonna just not care about your posts in here nor your opinions within it.

The Broncos' fans lose one today and we're gonna learn what the Colts' fans pre-Peyton Manning felt like. I just wonder how long it will be before we get our Cut-That-Meat to replace what Cutler would have done here. Once Josh McDaniels' tenure goes down in a firey crash, maybe we can get a real coach back in here too.

Good points Speed. The Rat, as I used to call him, had his blunders and now his downfall. I wish he could have stepped back to QB coach or something. He didn't get it done... fix the defense that is. He sure left the offense in fine shape though! So at least we have that to look forward to next season. Oh wait

Don't forget this one stat Speed; Cutler was 13-1 when the opposition scored 21 points or less. Let's not soon forget just how pathetic the Broncos Defense has been in the last 2 years! If McDaniels can fix that, we may have some hope.

There's two good posts in this competing thread here which I refuse to post in. They are here and here.

Oh RedSocksFan, one more thing;

Go Dolphins!




And how much use did these jerseys from those fine sportsmen get in that Pro Bowl game after that SB XVII?





Well if I'm gonna go there, I might as well go all the way here;



Speed: Back on topic indeed. I could care less about the Patriots, especially in this Denver Broncos thread. HH will be in later to add some relevant topics, such as Denver Broncos management. Thanks for the rep back Speed. Or not.

The more I think about the Pats, the more I like the Steelers.

Oh, and this one good pic of mine keeps getting taken off. It must be a copyright infringement or something. You all know the one? I'll just go freehand here and see if this will fly

One thing is for sure, you can say and talk all you want about the Patriots and the whole spygate thing, but the bottom line is the Trophies are still in New England and they are still the most successful team of this decade. Thats not debatable.

Back on topic.....

Will go a little further on this later tonight but have a quick observation on this.

When you have a car that is breaking down on you, what do you do? You fix it. When the transmission is locked up,won't downshift, and the brakes worn down to metal on metal, what do you do-replace the engine? No, you overhaul the transmission, and replace the brake drums and pads.

Denver couldn't stop a '59 Edsel for half the season. By the last month of the season not only was the transmission out but so were the brakes. The engine was running fine but the brakes and the tranny lost the last few games of the season.

The new owner of this car hasn't read the owners manual to it. He may not even have a manual to it at all. Maybe he is using the owners manual of the last vehicle he drove, but the Bronco engine he has now has overheated.

So has the fanbase.

Very good analogy, HH. Along those lines, I just blew a head gasket. Then I decided to not get mad. What's another couple of few more years before the Broncos get back on top and enact some revenge on those chowds... remember that last game? Nothing like getting kicked when you're down.

But that's cool. We'll wait.

Its nice having a head coach whose last job was to crouch under Blowchuck's desk and give him Monicas.

Oh thank you! See, even rivals can root for each other once in a while.

I'm still amazed at what Miami almost pulled off this last season; and what the refs did for the... I won't go there.

Go Broncos!

HH - I love your passion for your team. I can relate to any fan with your love for your team, but I think your anaology is not a fair one. Comparing a broken car to a football team is apples to oranges. People and machines work on 2 totally different premesies. 1 I agree McDaniel and Bowlen should address your efense ( I skipped the D because there was none in Denver last year). That said They also have to look at every possibility to improve the team over all. If trading cutler nabbed them a top DL or LB and a great pick, they have to be able to explore that or ANY other possibility. If they would have traded for Cassell and gotten him and a pick that they could use on a defensive player why not look at it? Should they have been more honest with HIM....100% yes, but in the long run he shouldnt be so sensetive either. If Joe Montana can get traded and Emmitt Smith can get traded what makes Cutler so special to think he couldnt be?
