Shanahan said what?
 
[I]Mike Shanahan says Redskins had ‘playoff-caliber’ offense in 2011.[/I]

Does he know how many games we won?
Did he even notice our QB situation?
WTF?

Didnt he get Shutout for the first time in his career? Seemed like they went a month w/o scoring a TD, unless it was during mop up time.

He's talking up his team like a head coach is supposed to do. What is he going to do? Slam his own guys? He makes a great point. Our offense was doing well until we had all those injuries. Our starters were killing it in the ZBS until the wheels fell off the wagon with all the injuries we had.

Take away the injuries and who knows. I think that's all he was saying.

Shanahan says a lot of things, and I don't put much stock into half of them.

IMO it wouldn't have been as bad if they hadn't put Ch(B)eckdown in for Grossman. That coupled with our injuries sank our offense.

We do not have any playoff caliber QBs, thats just nuts.
Sounds like something Vinny would say.

Grossman did go to a SB... just sayin'

He basically said could of been without all the injuries and mentioned they need depth. Best thing i took out of it is you can't bet the farm on that 1 guy which re-enforces there approach of not giving up the farm to get 1 player.

Goes back to the Beck/Grossman thing last year. He is being a Coach here not a true talent evaluator. He knew last year our QB situation was not the best but instead of saying our QBs suck but we'd have to give up too much to get somone better and have a ton of other needs to address, he gave the guys on the team his full backing and created competiton for the spot. Good for him. He is doing the same thing here.

Who is giving 100% for the guy that told the nation you weren't good enough, but it's how we have to handle it and we have a plan in place to eventually replace that person.

Shanny keeps getting blasted because people take his word as gospel. He might not be the best at lying but he does it to protect and inspire the players on his roster. Even with McNabb.

IMO the Skins bagged the season when they panicked last year and went to Beck. That was the only thing Shanny has done that I didnt think was a good move and I suspect he wont panic like that again.

He rode there on the Brian Urlacher/Devon Hester train.

LOL, is that Lavar or Chad Dukes posting?

Re: Shanahan said what?
 
my all time favorite Shanny quote and excuse:

"The cardiovascular endurance that it takes to run a two-minute, going all the way down with no timeouts, calling plays, it's just not easy. If I thought it was the best situation to do, then Donovan would have run the two-minute offense."

lol Shanny is a card

Re: Shanahan said what?
 
It's painfully annoying to have an HC who says things devoid of reality. At no point in the last two seasons did any facet of the team approach playoff caliber. As pointed out in the article...the offense was shockingly anemic before all the injuries.

This article doesn't bode well for the rest of the Shanny adventure. He doesn't seem to grasp we need an overhauled scheme and new coaching attitude on offense. At no time did Kyle's, or is it Mike's, ahhhh hell who knows, at no time did the offense show the tempo of a solid offense, let alone playoff caliber. And the scheme, which seems to rely on defenses being weak in the middle of the field, isn't going to take flight regardless of the personnel.
