    It's true - Just saw it on NFL.com - no article yet but it's on the breaking news banner on the front page.

    Watching NFL network right now and they are reporting it too. Must be true.

    Now the thought is, is this good or bad for us in the AFC west division. Shanahan is predictable and we have a good record against him lately.

    Sorry to see him go.:icon_rofl:

    Unless he ends up with another team that we play a lot, I think it's good for us. He's a dirty coach - teaching his guys to cut block and hurt guys intentionally.
    I'm glad to see him gone, just for that.

    Watching NFL network - they have Terrell Davis on now, he looked like he was going to cry.

    Now the question is - who will they pick-up for HC/OC/DC? Sounds like Gilbride may be in for Oakland [god willing]. I'm dying to know who may be headed to mile-high!

    Big Al missed the Raider trip to Tampa Bay last weekend. Could be his tenure with the Raidahs is coming to an end. Too bad, he's been a great asset to the Chargers over the last decade or so.

    Press release just read on NFL network confirming Shanahan firing.

    My Christmas just keeps getting better! Guess Shanarat has to look in the mirror now. He ran out of fall guys.

    The Jets, Lions, Browns are looking for coaches. I doubt Davis would hire him back. Shanarat's ego would collide with Weird Al's.

    What effen luck...:icon_shrug: He gets fired with 20+ million left to pay on his contract. He'll laugh all the way to the bank while he heads out to coach another team... or takes a year or two off.... still laughing.

    Guess we can add "coach killer" to the list of reasons Cutler sucks!

    Does anybody think this is a good move on Denver's part (despite of our hate for him and the Donks)?

    After finishing the way they did, I would say yes but if I were a Donks fan, I'm not sure I would approve. The Donks do have talent on their team but still plenty of holes to fill.

    I feel kinda' bad (not really). I had to break it to my ex-teammate & bronco fan buddy via text message:

    ME: WOW... I thought he'd retire... but fired?
    HIM: WHO?
    ME: UH OH... you'd better see for yourself.

    :lol::lol: Poor guy

    The team that lost Sunday Night was going to fire the head coach.

    The Donks fans are cheering like we did when Marty was fired.

    Cowher is not going anywhere. He has all ready told the Browns no, he is not ready to get back into the saddle again.

    And if he does decide to get back into coaching, New York, his daughter is going to Princeton.
