Holliday to Cards…Shanny Signs on in DC

Posted by sburk44 on January 6, 2010

Holliday gets 7 years for about 15 million per year. Rockies were offering more per year but not that long of deal a few years ago. Wish he was not in the national league, but at least his not in the Division. Purplerow actually thinks this is not a great deal for the Cardinals because of the long term issues it creates. Rockies are better off with only having 1 of these ridiculous multi-year deals (Helton) on the books.

Shanny gets 5 years and control of personnel…I know Gargs was giving me shit…but this is not a good situation for the ‘Skins. The best news is that their D is in decent shape, but will break down in a year or so as he spends all his time trying to get rid of Campbell and craft his own Offense.

I Don’t hate either guy…but I really dont want to see them do well either.

Shanny to DC?

Posted by sburk44 on January 4, 2010

As I mentioned before…My buddy Gargs thinks Shanny will be back to the playoffs before the Broncos. Looks like he will have to do it with Jason Campbell or a QB from this draft.

The only image to describe the 2-8 run to end the Season

While a Jets win tonight would have kept the Broncos out of the playoffs anyway – a bad loss (44 points!?) to the Chiefs ended McD’s first season as head coach, making the 8-8 finish I thought would be a ceiling for this team feel like a big disappointment. Even Jay Cutler having a terrible season and not getting in the playoffs is much less satisfying than I would have hoped.

My buddy Gargs thinks Shannahan will get back to the playoffs before the broncos do. I think this team will raise its ceiling to 10-6 next year with the release of the guys that gave McD problems (Marshall and Scheffler). For off-season priorities, I am mostly worried about the aging secondary and the offensive play-makers.


Jets dominated, so this game would have not have mattered. Obviously still a terrible way to end the season, but its really the Oakland an Washington games that blew our playoff chances.
