Yesterday was known as black Monday around the NFL due to all the coaching being fired. Today we have news out of Denver that the firings in the NFL have not ended just yet. Mike Shanahan of the Denver Broncos was fired.
This comes as a surprising move considering that Mike Shanahan was one of the longest tenured coaches in the NFL However, the Broncos late season collapse seems to have been too much for management to handle. There have always been critics that said Shanahan was simply the product of John Elway, and the Broncos lackluster performances since Elway's retirement could make anyone believe that speculation.
