I think the term "winner" is stupid.
One question is this though: Who are Shanahan's "guys?"
The thing I always found interesting about Parcells is that when he took his show to a new team, he would immediately sign three or four players from one of his old stomping grounds. Dave Megget. Brian Cox, Jumbo Elliot. There are others I'm forgetting. These guys seemed to serve the role of leader, informer, and sounding board for Parcells. Did Shanny bring any "guys" in? Does he have any "guys?"
