While speculating on where former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels may land on the most recent edition of ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, Chris Mortensen reported, “Don’t be surprised if Charlie Weis doesn’t return to Kansas City.”
Despite Kansas City’s stunning turnaround this season and the success of quarterback Matt Cassel under Chiefs Offensive Coordinator Weis, Mortensen speculated that McDaniels could soon replace Weis as KC’s offensive coordinator:
“Josh McDaniels got the most out of Matt Cassel. There are some issues to work out, but watch that.”
Given KC’s remarkable season, many would find that move surprising.
But not as surprising as where a well-respected newspaper columnist and radio host reported Weis could land if he departed the NFL team after just one season.
Or before this season is even over. Read more…

Mike Klis of the DENVER POST reports that Mike Shanahan has agreed to become the next head coach of the Washington Redskins.
Shanahan is expected to sign a five-year deal worth about $7 million a year, with the Redskins making the official announcement on Wednesday.
The move is also good news for Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, who expects to save $7 million for himself.
Remember how smart Brandon Stokley was to start the season - having the presence of mind to kill the clock before scoring against Cincinnati?
Presenting the new and not-so-improved Stokley, from yesterday’s game against the Eagles:
In his defense, coming in from out in the cold wasn’t such a bad idea.

UPDATE: McDaniels after the game when told his comments went out on-air: “It’s the NFL Network, It doesn’t surprise me.”
Has there ever been a teevee network more plagued with broadcast gaffes than the NFL Network? Thursday night’s embarrassing moment came when Denver Coach Josh McDaniels was heard clearly by viewers screaming, “All we’re trying to do is win a motherf—ing game!”
(Editor? Five-second delay? Anyone?)
NFL Network wired McDaniels for sound for the game, and inexplicably played back unedited video of his expletive-filled rant, which followed a penalty-laden offensive drive that stalled in the red zone.
If you were with me Sunday night, McDaniels’ outburst in no way surprised you, considering his emotional outburst directed at the Chargers before San Diego throttled the Broncos 32-3 at Invesco Field.
Video of McDaniels melting down Thursday after the jump.
Earlier today I posted that San Diego’s XPRS-AM radio reporter Marty Caswell reported there was a rumor going around Invesco Field in Denver that Broncos Coach Josh McDaniels had “taunted” the Chargers linebackers before the Broncos lost to San Diego 32-3.
Chargers Linebackers Shawne Merriman and Stephen Cooper confirmed to Caswell after the game that McDaniels had indeed taunted them, with the coach reportedly saying to the San Diego linebackers group, “We own you guys.”
Cooper and Merriman weren’t the only Chargers reacting to McDaniels. Caswell reports that Chargers linebacker Shaun Phillips was next to pile on the coach. Read more…
Marty Caswell, reporter for San Diego’s XPRS-AM, Tweeted this during the Chargers 32-3 rout over the Broncos today in Denver:
Wouldn’t be out of character for McDaniels. I’m guessing he’ll be asked about it at some point today or tomorrow. Not that it matters to anyone besides Denver sports radio show callers.
For 59 minutes of gametime, the Denver Broncos as Cincinnati Bengals were playing like two teams who had zero preseason hype coming into the season, which is exactly what they were. A late touchdown gave Cincinnati the lead at 7-6, but it was long since clear that there would be no real winners from the game - most certainly not the fans.
Lucky for America, though, Gus Johnson was calling the game, and when Gus Johnson is on the mic, incredible things happen and Gus Johnson loses his s–t. So after the aforementioned touchdown, the Broncos were backed up to their own 13 yard line. And with Kyle Orton as the quarterback, so you know perfect passes weren’t exactly in the offing. And let’s start the video there, which you can watch below.
