This just in. After 14 years, 2 Super Bowls, and countless games with that maroon face, the axe fell on Coach Mike Shanahan of the Denver Broncos. This makes him the 4th NFL coach in 2 days to get his walking papers, including the NY Jets’ Eric “Mangenius” Mangini, Cleveland’s Romeo Crennel, and the Detroit Lions’ Rod Marinelli (big surprise!)
The difference between Shanahan and the rest? Yes, Mike Shanny got fired, but he also walks away with more than $20 million. For that kind of money, especially in these hard-ass economic times, who really cares??
