    This is huge.

    I wonder how it will affect the Texans, because you KNOW it will.

    Yep, and he's done even worse without Kubiak.

    It'll be interesting to see what he does from here. Take a year off maybe? There's no way he'd come here and work under Kubiak and his son. If he did, the poster's who are always clamoring for National exposure will surely be happy.

    That's a shame. I like Shanahan. He's strictly an offensive mind and the Broncos have most of the pieces in place on that side of the ball.

    Their defense on the other hand, just sucks.

    Damn, I'd rather have the rat Shanny as coach of Cowboys than Wade. I think their offense is still good and he has done well with Cutler. He also made a guy like Jake the Snake watchable. Their defense sucks.

    Cleveland? One thing is for sure. If Shanahan wants to work next year, he will be employed. However, with $20 mil now in his pocket, he might want to move to Houston to be with the grand baby.

    VP of Football Operations here?

    This has to instantly be the most attractive vacant position, right?

    The Jets are overspenders with a huge question mark at QB.

    The Browns are severely overrated and have questions all over the place.

    The Lions are the Lions.

    The Broncos have an elite offense in place, an elite QB in the making, but a horrible defense.

    Is that a place Cowher might end up in? Did Denver also fire their GM?

    I think Shanny was the GM. They might have had someone with the title but Shanny made all of the player personnel decisions.
