Now news out of One Bills Drive is that the Buffalo Bills are attempting to arrange a meeting with former Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan. Sources include Adam Schefter from ESPN. You can find his write-up here .
Now what does this mean? First off, I’m quite happy. i’ve been calling for Shanahan all season long. I think he would do wonders with running backs Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson. Shanahan’s used to taking no-name guys and making them 1,000-yard rushers. Lynch has done it every season so far, and Jackson could do it in terms of yards from scrimmage.
The one possible issue I see with this is that Shanahan in Denver tended to not pick the greatest players for his defense. That would have to change if he’s brought in with the power to not only coach, but also call the shots general manager style.
I would like to see him either bring in an established defensive coordinator or keep either Perry Fewell or Bob Sanders, the defensive line coach who was the coordinator for the Green Bay Packers previously.
Obviously nothing will happen right at the moment, but it certainly is a fun time to be a Bills fan.
