Glad he is gone!

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP)—New Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton(notes) didn’t get the warm welcome he anticipated when he made his unofficial debut at Invesco Field on Thursday night.

Orton was booed by the crowd of 13,402—the largest crowd ever to watch a Broncos practice—when he was picked off twice by free agent cornerback Andre’ Goodman(notes), the second of which was returned for a long touchdown.

Shanahan had to go. Marginal coach at best.

He'd fit in well in MN.

Call him marginal, and I am sure he'd show you his rings. He turned Elway into a champion, by figuring out passing the ball every play doesn't always work.

That was in a different era of NFL playcalling and as evidenced by his success, or lack thereof, in the last half dozen years he's clearly become a mediocre coach. We're in a era of pass first, run second and Shanahan didn't adjust. He keeps playing musical chairs with his RB's but that's not the issue.

MN is in the same boat with an outstanding runner in Peterson, but until they add some passing to their offense they are going nowhere and that is why Shanny would fit right in and remain a marginal coach for a terrible team, with terrible players, in a terrible stadium, with terrible fans, and terrible cheerleaders (© Dan Cole).

lol...broncos were 3rd in the league for passing yards per game last season....their passing rank has gone up every year the past few years.

you mean they have a [PoorWordUsage] hole defense and can't stop anyone so they lose.....all the teams that win have strong running games and good defenses...only pass happy team that wins anything is the pats.

pitts has dominated for years with a strong running game and real good D...big ben barely has to pass he just needs to make a few good plays....giants D and running game was real mean when they won it all...not like eli is some great passer.

saints throw the ball all day and can't win because of a junk D and not a strong enough run game.

all the vikes need to do is keep teams honest and make them respect the pass which we know forsure they don't do with tjack.

Pittsburgh had the 20th-something ranked run offense last year and Arizona was right there with them if not dead last, and in case you forgot they played each other in the SB. I think AZ's defense gave up a pile of points throughout the year too.....just like Denver.

Anyway, Shanahan is washed up and I think he's got some head issues. The guy is whacko.

Shanahan's demise was wanting to play GM as well with the personnel decisions. XO's, halftime adjustments, ect. he's more than enough coach. If you believe in games he has coached that he didnt, on occasion, out-coach the guy across the field from him you need to go dip your head in a washbasin full of icewater.

I dont agree with passing first running second. Running controls the clock and the flow of the game. You need to be good at both running and passing generally great teams do pass better but they control the clock with running. What good is getting a touchdown if you get it in 20 seconds and the other team controls the ball for the next 10 minutes and scores?

sounds like the 98 vikes lol....we would score almost everytime we touched the ball but then we'd let them score almost everytime they got the ball back....imagine that team having peterson and the defense we have now...that would be sick!

Shanahan had his time in the sun but is overrated IMO. I hope he stays away from Minnesota...he's a complete control freak!!

One of the best coaches in the NFL bar none to say other wise is well PREPOSTEROUS!

Of course coaching is overrated and its more about the players but we'd take Shanny any day and Sunday.

Shanahan could have any Job in that arises in NFL if he wants it.

Case closed.

Well, after running the Broncos into the ground and drafting like an [PoorWordUsage] the last three years, he certainly doesn't have the opportunity to coach the Broncos anymore. He didn't step down...he got canned just like he should have.

I'd take Cowher any day over Shanahan.

What I was referring to was when he first got there all they did was pass, and Elway never really had any help. He implemented years of good running games and they won the Super Bowl. They have turned back into a passing team and look what has happened to them- no longer making the playoffs.

i agree zamboni...i wasn't goin against anything you said i was responding to LMITOUT's statement of "That was in a different era of NFL playcalling and as evidenced by his success, or lack thereof, in the last half dozen years he's clearly become a mediocre coach. We're in a era of pass first, run second and Shanahan didn't adjust. He keeps playing musical chairs with his RB's but that's not the issue."

I suppose when you have Childress anything looks good right about now, even that psycho Shanahan.

Now that you mention it, he does have that Anthony Perkins look a.k.a. Norman Bates.

    • I get that, not the point, or i wouldnt have posted in the first place. How about he is stubborn and wont wear a life jacket and instead of freezing in his old deer hunting garb a pair of new outerwear designed for ice fishing would be great and as a bonus add safety?
    • You were definitely against it.  BD not.   And, as the old joke goes, it is a matter of price.   If they can get jobs for 700 bucks a year subsidy per job, might well be worth doing.  On the other hand 200k per job or whatever it really is seems too expensive.     But if you are one of the purists, then oppose everything.    I'm not that doctrinaire. 
    • I thought it was worth mentioning that I;ve found great mounting boards and mounting ideas from checking the catalogs of some taxidermy supply page and catalogs. 
    • I get being concerned about the ones you love, that's aways a good practice, but it seems like no matter how well I try to educate my wife on ice safety and my precautions regarding it, she still thinks I'm going to die.  If they have $400+ to burn, so be it, but I've compromised by saying I'll wear a life jacket out the first time or two.  Seems like a more economical solution to me. 
    • I agree with Hawg and Sea Hage. This is a convection heater and heat rises through the top vents. At 15k BTU the area where you put the fan will reach 300+ deg. f. and deform the fan blades as they are made of plastic. Put the fan at the bottom as suggested. Your main objective is to get hot air circulation through the house. The floor will usually be cooler due to the holes but with the fan blowing at the bottom cold air is returned at the bottom of the heater through circulation. My house is same size as yours. I have a 9k BTU Dura Flame convection heater and tried several fan configurations. I did burn up the fan blades when installed as in you pic running at about 7k BTU. I than converted it to a forced air with air flow fan control using temperature controlled relays. The burner I posted earlier is from that heater where I increased the BTU to 12k. The temp in my house is very consistent floor to ceiling and operates same as my home furnace. May be a bit of overkill for what your looking for but really works well with great comfort at any outside temp and wind.   The bump  on the air duct has 3 four inch compute fans to maintain. Behind the white framed box I put a 4 speed auto fan for fast warm-up I turn off when warm. Runs at 12.5k BTU. The pipe duct going to the door I added this fall to heat my attached flip. Cold air return is opening below the heat chamber and at the auto fan.   When I am not in the house and want to keep it warm, I turn off the temp control relays and open the door to the original convection and turn the heat down.  
    • I have a Crossfire II 4-16x50 on my .308 elk rifle and I love it. Great scope, very clear and bright and Vortex quality. I have not had a single issue with it and the Crossfire is on the budget end of their glass. I've great reports from those with the higher end scopes. I wouldn't hesitate for a second. As far as which one to choose, I find the 50mm scope a little big and heavy. You'll likely have issues mounting to an AR due to its size. Mine had the benefit of the barrel taper allowing for the larger lens to fit. If I had a flat top like an AR it wouldn't fit as well. 
    • This is a post on the low flame issue that was brought up awhile back along with a question. As most said the low flame is normal and says so in the manual. I just picked one up, a used one. Hooked it all up and had very minimal flame. I have several of these units in rental houses so I am able to compare. The unit I just picked up is an abnormally low flame. I took a little square head bolt out of the black pipe that goes directly into the burner and blew it out. This was a mistake as at this point I can not get the burner to light. Ok now I need to get to the burner. I took apart the unit and took the burner out and blew it out real good then reassembled the unit and wa-la great flame and great heat, better then my newer units.   Now for the ? part of my post. I am having a 10degree drop in the temp before the unit starts back up. My other shacks are not much better but a little. Anyone have any experience with this issue?
