please don't misunderstand, i believe both carl & herm need to go but if we wanted to get cower, we had a better chance w/carl still there. if we don't get paioli i would not be opposed to marty at gm w/cower as coach.
Except that Cowher has already stated he's not coaching in 2009, and I thought the Marty/Cowher thing had already been ruled out.
We would be lucky to get anyone worth a shart at this time! I think Shanahan would kick arse! How many games has herm won us? 7 8 ya whatever....
Personall, I dont think its that far fetched an idea that Clark might be talking with other HC's. Look at it this way. If your the owner (chairman) of a NFL team and your current HC's record has declined every year and someone with a proven track record calls you or becomes available why wouldnt you entertain the idea? I know I would. Why did Gunther get fired after 1 season as a HC? Because Carl's good friend Vermiel was becoming available. Im sure if I thought about it harder I could come up with other examples. I think it would be entirely possible for Shannahan to come to the Chiefs. He's a AFC wester for life! :bananen_smilies046:
...except for when he was the OC for the 49ers :)
Maybe instead of Marty doing a Parcells type of role Shanahan will be? He was the GM for Denver as well.
BUT this is probably wrong because I'm guessing Pioli would not want a person coming in to act like a Parcells type of person.
