Former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski joined “The Sports Junkies” on 106.7 The Fan and provided great insight on why the Mike Shanahan regime can be successful.
Romanowski praised Shanny’s ability to game plan, saying he could out plan 90 or 95 percent of the coaches in the NFL.
“Mike Holmgren used to tell me this about himself. He used to say ‘I’m seven points better than any defensive coordinator in the league.’ Well guess what. That’s what Mike Shanahan is. He is especially early and then, you know, you can only game plan so much, you gotta have the horses to do it.”
Romo used to play for Shanahan while in Denver.
He also added that Rex Grossman used to have some form of an “it” factor like analysts say Tebow since he took a Bears team to a Super Bowl. Now, people are down on him only because that “it” factor has been beaten out of him over the years and a new surrounding could revive it back in him.
