Nice quote from Snyder:
"Itís exciting again, but itís going to take some time. Weíre going to be patient and build something special here."

No question we've got some real pros running the show now. But we're still in the honey moon phase. If we win 4-7 games which could happen cause the schedule is tougher then we're going to try and run these guys out of town. Let's remember that although Shanahan is a great game day coach he did have his share of failures in Denver. And Allen had his in Tampa. But everyone gets fired in the NFL. I know we're in good hands but the future is now plan does worry me.

The best thing I can take from all of this is Snyder's attitude change. If Allen/Shanahan fail, at least Snyder will know how a proper front office should operate.

Everyone plays nice...it's the honeymoon phase. When Shanahan doesn't perform I'm guessing the dream will come to an end.

Agreed. I'm through getting too excited about this organization in the offseason. For sure this is as stable as the team structure has been since Snyder bought the Skins, but until I see it on the field....

Yeah my giddiness is contained at the moment but I can't wait to get it underway. It's not like Shanahan had a great last few years he was coaching but pretty much every elite coach has had a similar run. The fact that he took the year off from football and used it mostly to study the game and perhaps adjust his approach to his own coaching, much the same as Coach K does at Duke, rather than stay stuck in his ways speaks a lot for his commitment to the game.

There's no doubt in my mind that we will field a much better product than we've seen over the past several years; it will remain to be seen if we can reach the upper echelon of the NFL though.

I am thinking Snyder will have some patience. How long was he patient with Turner? I would like to believe that he might still turn to Coach Gibbs for advice.

the scary thing is when marty was here he half righted the ship and was kicked outta town. i'm with you i've been dissapointed by this team too many times in the past few years. it feels different this year but i'm still going into the season thinking that 8-8 would be a pretty damn good year

We won't know Snyder's real growth until the 2nd coach after Shanahan. I am hoping that is a LONG time from now.

I say second, because his first will be shaped by the events under Shanahan/Allen, and could be a good choice, but his second will show whether he reverts back to the VC proxy history, or that he has really learned from this last decade. If he has really learned, and he becomes a great owner of a great franchise, than this first 10 years will soon become a speck in Skins history.

Think about what you said. If they fail why would he think thats the way a front office should be run. We kind of said the same thing about Gibbs II.

Let's temper the excitement and be cautiously optimistic about the upcoming season.

If they don't win right away I'll not be pissed. 8-8 will be acceptable to me next season, as long as we keep improving and actually stand a chance of winning every single game we're in.
