Denver Broncos Coach Shanahan

I got the following from a great free newsletter offered by the NFL. You get weekly updates on what is happening around the league. You can subscribe here.

The following is from a week ago. Sorry - just got around to posting on it now, but still worthy of mention...

The NFL has fined Denver Broncos Coach Mike Shanahan $20,000 for publicly criticizing officials in Week 3's game against San Diego.

The Broncos were penalized for having too many players on the field, which nullified a 61-yard punt return for a touchdown. Coach Shanahan was quoted as saying the call was "horrible," adding "those calls aren't made in high school" to reporters.

Typical of today's society…God forbid anyone wants to actually play by the rules! Better yet, according to Shanahan, I guess we should take lessons from high school football on how to run the NFL!

I've never heard anything much about Shanahan before today - whether good or bad. Maybe in this incident, the 'high-altitude" air got to him. However, for now, he is going down on my list of "bad coaches".
