The skinny is Spagnuolo ranks 4th among free agent head coaches, meaning Bill Cowher, Mike Shanahan and Mike Holmgren would all be hired ahead of him.
That is, if Cowher and Holmgren are looking, which we believe they are not. That leaves Shanahan as the best candidate, and it is believed that he will take the Jets' job.
Spags will most likely end up in Denver. We don't think he's crazy enough to go to Detroit, St. Louis or Oakland should those latter positions open up. The Broncos are a good fit for Steve. They have a franchise QB in Jay Cutler and a solid organization with a dedicated owner in Pat Bowlen. The piece of the puzzle that needs fixing is the defense, and that is where Spags comes in.
