    Default Mike Shannahan may be a possibility as the next HC

    Woody Paige and Mike Klis are both reporting that Elway ALMOST brought Mike Shannahan back at the end of 2017 season but was shot down by Ellis. Thoughts?

    I like Shanny. Don't like the optics. Maybe if he brings Wade on as DC and upgrade the QB position, and Elway keeps drafting like 2018. I do think Shanny is an outstanding HC and would love to cement his HOF bid.

    Limit Shanahan to coaching and I'm fine with it.

    The original story feels like elways side of the story, this feels like team Ellis firing back to paint a different narrative.

    I believe klis is also reporting that elway has already been informed that bringing shanahan back is not an option (that would include 2019 I would assume)

    Honestly, shanny having a say in the offense wouldn't be bad. He could build an offense, just sucked at putting a defense together.

    I salivate at the thought of Lindsay and Freeman in a Shanny-style offense... Honestly Shannahan's biggest obstacle was Peyton Manning during his tenure here. We can take a Plummer-like QB and do some damage. Or I could only be remembering the good times. Who knows?

    I don't know. I love Shanny, he had an offensive scheme that he could draft for and it worked mostly (except for the small OLine at the end that couldn't convert short yardage). His defenses were ass mostly and he sucked as a GM.

    At least he was competent as a head coach, better than what we have now.

    This move screams that Elway doesn't have what it takes to hire an up and coming HC however.

    No thanks to Shanny. That ship has sailed. Also, Klis says hes not on the radar for next year (reposted from the fire VJ thread):

    I said all of this a while back. Not sure why now everyone is talking about it.

    Well he definitely missed the boat with his first one.

    i remember bob slowick, and i say thank god for joe ellis. . . elway needs to come up with a forward-thinking approach. . . not make a desperation hire based on nostalgia because he can't come up with any better ideas. . . shanny is an absolute non-starter for me. . . those old coaches always want a significant voice (if not final say) in personnel, and he was atrocious at it. . .
