Does Shanahan have super powers?

In the past couple months, Shanahan has seemed to have developed an uncanny ability to slow down time and acrobatically dodge bullets. a la the Matrix.  Or at least see into the future, a la that weird gypsy head thing from the movie Big (could that thing see into the future?  anyway...I digress).

The first bullet that Shanahan dodged would be letting Javon Walker walk.  The national media seemed to take this as a sure indication that Shanahan had finally 'lost his marbles'.  However, shortly thereafter Walker had his infamous Vegas incident.  Then he showed up to training camp looking out of shape and nothing like a pro-bowl talent receiver.  Now Walker apparently no longer wants to play football.

Bullet number two is Travis Henry.  Once again, the pundits in the media thought Shanahan had cracked when he released his presumed starting running back during OTAs.  However, shortly thereafter, Henry failed yet another drug test which would have effectively ended his season. 

Bullet three?  NFL sources are reporting that Todd Sauerbraun will be suspended four games for his altercation with a taxi driver in December.  As we all know, Shanahan let Saurbraun go at the end of last season for, in my opinion, kicking the ball to Devon Hester not just once...but twice. 

In light of Shanahan's recently discovered super powers, how can we interpret his recent playoff prediction and handling of the John Lynch and Jason Elam situations?  Maybe he knows something we don't!
