FALCONS SNIFFING AROUND SHANAHAN?

A league source tells us that the Atlanta Falcons are exploring the possibility of pursuing Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan.
As the rumor/scuttlebutt goes, Shanahan would run the show in Atlanta, as the head coach and de facto G.M.
Though he’s still under contract with the Broncos, the thinking is that owner Pat Bowlen might be happy to let him leave, given the struggles of the team in 2007.
Another name that has emerged in Atlanta is Chiefs V.P. of player personnel Bill Kuharich. It’s possible that both Shanahan and Kuharich could join the Falcons, with Kuharich serving as the G.M. but Shanahan calling the shots.
I wonder if we can get them to take a guy with experience as a GM and send them Carl Peterson instead. Perhaps we could get a draft pick...lol.
But on a serious note, I hope the Falcons take Shanahan. He's done great things for Denver and i'm tired of this coach being in our division. I was just as happy to see Marty leave SD. Kiffin and Turner don't exactly strike fear in the heart of anyone. lol Norv will drive that team into the ground in no time. But Shanahan on the other hand, has built division winners more than once.
