As though there was not enough drama in the NFL this season, we have even juicier news than Plaxico Burress shooting himself in the foot, Tom Brady being out for the season, the Dallas Cowboys not making the playoffs and Brett Favre being "forced" out of Green Bay. Mike Shanahan with his Team

Long-time Denver Broncos head coach and most recently executive VP of football operations, Mike Shanahan was fired Tuesday. Shanahan was dropped two days after the last day of the regular season, where his Broncos lost a decisive game to division rival, San Diego Chargers. After going 8-5, the Broncos lost their three remaining games, being the only team in NFL history to lead a division every week, and then lose that top spot in the final game. All that being said - what the flying fuck, Denver?

Loyalty, motherfuckers, do you speak it?!

Let's see...Mike Shanahan was with the Denver Broncos for 14 seasons. Over that span, he had a 61.6 winning percentage, won back-to-back Super Bowl titles in the 1997 and 1998 seasons, and only had two losing seasons in 1999 and 2007. Before being let go on Tuesday, Mike Shanahan was the longest tenured head coach in the NFL, with the next closest being Jeff Fisher of the Tennessee Titans who has 11 seasons under his belt.

There were certainly some obvious firings that were going to take place this off-season, but Shanahan's name was not on anyone's radar. In my opinion, this was a horrible decision by the Broncos' owner Pat Bowlen, and I sincerely hope it bites him square in the ass. On behalf of Mike Shanahan to you, Mr. Bowlen: go fuck yourself and the horse you rode in on.

What makes this even more bizarre is that it even took the players by shock - just imagine your current manager being fired out-of-the-blue, even though he seemed perfect for the job and did it for 14 MOTHERFUCKING YEARS! Broncos' starting quarterback, Jay Cutler, had this to the Rocky Mountain News after he found out:

I'm disappointed, I'm shocked, I'm not happy about it, I'm not pleased with it at all. We had zero inkling this was going to happen. I didn't have a clue.

No big deal though, if Cutler becomes too outspoken - which he typically is - just can him too, right? He only racked up the most passing yards of any Broncos QB in 2008, surpassing John Elway's previous mark, but who cares? It's business, baby. Right?

Mike Shanahan watching Jay Cutler Throw

The only way there could be any justice in this is if the Kansas City Chiefs pick up Shanahan as their head coach, and he beats the shit out of the Broncos every time they face each other in division games for the next 14 years. I'm not even a Broncos fan and I still feel this is a piece of shit move of epic proportions. I sincerely hope the Broncos' record drops like a turd next season, you assholes.
