Every fall is an exciting time being coached by a Shanahan. Neither Mike (head coach) or Kyle (offensive co-ordinator) is loyal to more than one or two particular players.

Earlier today my counterpart Andy Miley shared his Senior Bowl thoughts.
I’ve always loved the Senior Bowl. The Senior Bowl has been the unofficial kick-off to the next fantasy season for as far back as I have done dynasty fantasy football.
