The problem with Denver was the defense but instead of keeping Mike Shanny and just fixing the D the owner blew up the entire team
2005 13-3 (Lost Conf Champ)
2006 9-7 9ers beat them in OT to keep them from making the playoffs
2008 8-8 Lost last three games and the 4 game lead in the division
If I’m not mistaken Mike S lost his coordinators after the 05 season and never recovered
They have one of best owners in all of sports.
It looks like this is blowing up in Bowlen's face, but everyone makes mistakes. If McDaniels fails it'll be because he turns the players against him. The Cutler issue... Schefftler... questioning Marshall's toughness and then benching him before a must-win game. That's just ignornant and a fool allowing his ego to get in the way. Still, he turned their defense around, quickly. Plus, he got pretty nice production out of his offense, which everyone expected to fall flat without Cutler.
Bowlen didn't see Shanahan taking them to the Superbowl anytime soon, so he made a drastic change. He feels an obligation to the fans to win. Him and Shanahan would close friends. He made probably the toughest decision of his career all for the betterment of his franchise. I wouldn't call him a douche of that.
