Mike Shanahan lays it on the line
During an interview w/ The Fan 950 this morning, the coach shockingly threw down the motherfucking gauntlet. Here's the money shot:
"We will not miss the playoffs"
He even went so far as to say that not only would the Donks be playing in January, but they could do "something special" when they got there.
Now, has anyone ever heard Shanahan offer up any kind of insight or some bold prediction during an interview or press conference or anything like that? No. The man gives you nothing. He spews the same old bland lines and lame cliches that almost every other coach and player in the league gives. Shanahan and Belichick are the masters of talking to the media while not saying anything.
LOVE the enthusiasm from the coach. Love. It.
I don't think this is just him issuing a challenge to the team. That's not how he operates. I think that if he's jacked up enough to actually say it, he's gotta be serious. He didn't say that shit last year, or the year before, or the year before that. I've never heard him say it. I think he actually believes it.
