This isn't a big deal to me, but I figured I'd post it because we do have one Broncos fan on the board. I'm not sure how much of an impact he had on selecting players because the article makes it seem like Shannahan had that power ("In a brief statement Wednesday, coach Mike Shanahan said it was time for the organization to move forward and look at new directions.")

Yeah, I was under the impression that Shannahan already was HC/GM. I'm pretty sure he makes all the draft picks.

Shanahan is a good coach, but sometimes he makes some weird picks it seems.
Clarett?
He has made some good ones lately though.
Cutler, Marshall, Dumervil

Yeah, I agree. Makes some very weird picks, but picks on potential. Clarett had tons of potential, he just wasn't disciplined. That's always been his deal, potential over character. Sometimes it works out, he has made some good picks in recent years. Dumervil will be a star soon, and Marshall had a great year. Before he was killed, Darrent Williams was on the verge of stardom.

I agree on Shannahan. Some of his picks are questionable, but he is a big reason why Denver has remained a contender every year for a long time.
