Mike Shanahan: If He's Fired in Washington, Does He Go Back To Denver?

I have just read this piece by Jack Gorman here on B/R: 


If Shanahan was fired in Washington should the Denver Broncos try to get Shanahan back to Denver ??

Could the history of the "Dynamic Duo" of Shanahan and Elway reunited give the Broncos the direction that they need so badly.

From what I have read Shanahan really likes Tebow, as does Elway supposedly, and it doesn't take a lot of imagination to see history rewriting it self.

Actually I think the the perspective of reuniting Elway and Shanahan, could be just the medicine that could bring Bowlen and Shanahan back to the table again.

Personally I think it is hard to be impressed with how Shanahan has handled the situation in Washington - and its really hard to see how the Redskins are a better team year one after Shanahan.

But you could also say that it is hard to say that the Broncos are a better team now than when Shanahan was fired.

If I was the marketing manager for the Denver Broncos I would be in the 7th heaven with Shanahan back in Denver. It does not take a lot of imagination to picture how Mile High would go crazy with Shanahan back on the sideline with Elway in the background and Tebow leading the Broncos in an Elway'esk manner.

But is this more the just a fantasy in Bronco land ? and would it really make sense ??
