Here's a scnadalous rumor I am just now coming up with. Mike Shanahan is a native of Oak Park, Illinois; nearby suburb west of Chicago. Jay Cutler plays quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Both men were employed by the Denver Broncos last season and got along very well, especially as most QB/head coach relationships go. It seems to me as if Jay Cutler has been throwing some passes so bad, it's as though he's trying to get his current coach Lovie Smith fired, perhaps in order to give the Bears a reason to bring in a future Hall of Fame coach and native son of the Windy City.
We shall see, but I'd be willing to bet that if things keep up like this in Chicago, then Mike Shanahan will be tops on the short list to be the Bears new head coach.
