DENVER DUMPS COACH
I don't blame the NFL's Denver Broncos owner for firing Coach Mike Shanahan. I know he is a good coach, with Super Bowl wins, but the last few years his teams have been consistently mediocre. And I think he put way too much faith in quarterback Jay Cutler, who in my opinion, doesn't have that winning instinct that makes him a great player or team leader. Sometimes when a team is under performing, you have to shake things up a bit. And firing Shanahan may do that. It's the same as when the NBA's Sacramento Kings fired Coach Rick Adelman. I supported that move, too, because they weren't performing up to potential. Mrs. MM thinks it was a bad move to fire Shanahan. I am supportive. We'll see in the new year who was right.
