    that article is in the UT
    the columnist basically said that Shanarat buys into his own genius, that he has too many older players, that he relies on Brown castoffs that, though play better, can't get pressure or really stop hte run, and that Shanarat buys into the notion that anyone can be a 1K runner in his system. That last part has somewhat been proven true BUT that doesn't mean he has anything BUT so-so running backs

    In a 16 game season you can average 63 yards per game and be a 1,000 yard rusher.

    Shanny does by too much into his own genius. He's also seeing a lot of key players start to get old--Rod Smith, the O-line, John Lynch.

    I don't think the Rat is as big a genius as people make him out to be. He's a good play caller, but not as good of a talent evaluator as he's made out to be.

    there are three reasons why they think he's this genius offensively
    1. He turns everyone into 1000 yd rushers (which is a big thing to be as a running back) --> truth be told of all hte back's he's used, two have had success elsewhere (Anderson and Portis) and one had a good short career (Davis) but the others have been atrocious (Gary, Bell)
    2. His OL has been very good (and they use a good zone blocking scheme, regardless of how cheap the Broncos linemen are, and they really are, their zone blocking produces great results)
    3. He won two superbowls (but they were with elway, davis, mccaughery and Rod Smith)

    Marty better than Shanahan at developing young QBs

    Marty's been a better coach than Shanahan at helping to develop young QBs into becoming great QBs.

    Shanahan inherited Elway from Dan Reeves.

    When's the last good QB Shanahan helped to develop from scratch?

    He failed with Brian Griese. Jake Plummer, while not exactly young, hasn't improved since coming to them from Arizona.

    Shanarat's first real one may be Jay Cutler in a few years.

    Meanwhile, Marty as the HC helped to develop Kosar, Trent Green, Drew Brees, and now Philip Rivers.

    Hey, they might want to notice how thin our D is. It's not like we have all our playmakers out there.

    Ditto. I was like, WTF? I didn't know how we were going to stop the run without Cesaire, Phillips, Polk, McCree and Hart. Luckily, most of those guys nutted up and went back in the game, mostly because we had no one else left.
