Mike Shanahan the Mastermind?

Early on in the season, Denver Broncos coach Mike Shanahan reminded everyone that coaches can effectively "ice" a kicker. And with that, he ruined football. Ok, maybe he didn't ruin the game, but that move has since become more played out than Peaches this season. We used to worship the man here in Denver, but lately a few blown play calls, some terrible clock management, and some unforgivable personnel moves have caused many of us to question the Master's mind. Check out this slide show of a select few of Shanahan's most egregious gaffes from the 2007 season, and feel free to add your suggestions in the comments section below.
