Bills contact Mike Shanahan

Shanahan would not go to Buffalo. He's a west coast guy. Has a house in Baja Cali. He's waiting for Norv to get fired so he can stick it to the Raiders and Broncos twice a year again.

Well, the way the Chargers have been playing lately, they keep it up and Norv won't be getting fired, at least not this year.

I wouldn't be so sure. Spanos is thinking Super Bowl or bust. Norv gets to the playoffs but ownership and AJ Smith want a championship. Shanahan has 2 as HC.
Why don't we contact him?

Cause Singletarys speeches and tough attitude are way better than a coach with an incredible resume, or did you forget that?

So did he laugh at them and hang up?

For the YORKIES and the WZ fans as well. Yes that is sad.
Well, according to this, no meeting was scheduled or anything: http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/11/18/bills-havent-asked-for-meeting-with-shanahan/

I don't know if you'd want to meet with him during the season publicly.

You de-legitimize the interm HC.

Schefter reports there are, Carucci denies it. who is right but Schefter has the better track record FWIW.

The other candidates the Bills have on radar according to Schefter are Jim Haslett, Kevin Gilbride and Marc Trestman. Bills fans better hope Ralph Wilson gets his meeting scheduled and offers the money to Shanny.

Are you sure ? Last I heard he was still living in his Denver mansion although it had been sold. Nonetheless he grew up in Illinois and spent much of his NFL coaching career in Denver so that makes him a midwest guy no ?

Taking the Buffalo job and making them relevant again would cement his legacy moreso than taking the gig with the Chargers. Also the Chargers would have to part ways with AJ Smith as he will want full control. Same with the Bears and Jerry Angelo and the Skins and Vinny Cerrato. And how well would Shanny like answering to Snyder and his love for FA spending as opposed to rebuilding that team properly ? Buffalo is the most likely of all those teams to be the first to offer him full control.

I think if Buffalo ponies up the money Shanny will be very serious about the gig.

You are also a WZ fan. If you post on this forum you are a WZ fan. Next time you classify all of us on this forum as a WZ fan, you should think about it. That statment tells me that you don't consider yourself a WZ fan. How can you not be one? If you don't classify yourself as one, then why are you on this forum?

San Diego seems like a good fit, but once again San Diego is turning the heat up late. No guarantee Norv gets fired.

As for the location argument. That's a fail. Shanahan will go the team that offers him the most money and the most power. Take that to the bank.

He adapted to the west coast lifestyle. Even Denver is more attractive than Buffalo and it's not about the money. With coaches like Holmgren, Gruden ,Shanny or Cowher it's about control. Ralph Wilson would need to let Shanny get his own GM or player personel type guy. There is no way Cerrato does not get fired at the end of the year. So Washington seems like a better fit for Shanny.

Your partly right. It's all about control not money. I just said location because how else will Shanny keep that golden tan he has year round
