Re: Report: Shanahan in Talks with Redskins

I'm hoping we get Shanahan though, man is an offensive genius. Our defense is on par as it usually is, add in a good offense, oh my lord.

Back to the good ol days!

If Shanahan is hired in any capacity, Zorn had better be fired immediately. There's simply no justification for stringing him along any more. I know Snyder needs to do whats best for the franchise long term, but there's got to be some decency displayed here. I'll be disgusted if Shanahan is hired as Team President and Zorn stays on to coach 3 games, then is fired and Shanahan becomes the head coach.
Someone mentioned in the other thread about the possibility of him being named President or something now.. and head coach later. I know that if we hire him in any capacity right now it's nothing but inevitable that he'll get the HC title eventually though.

Re: Report: Shanahan in Talks with Redskins

[quote=CRedskinsRule;641925]Personally, I think one human of every ethnic group/sexual orientation/gender should be interviewed for every job available. Further, the presidency ought to be changed from a one person job to a cooperative hegemony, again with one of every ethnic group/sexual orientation/gender represented. Further, the UN should have multiple representatives from every nation one for every ethnic group/sexual orientation/gender.

Granted nothing would get accomplished, but hey BONUS![/quote]

LOL, nothing gets accomplished now as it is. LOL.

Shanahan was contacted back in Oct. I don't doubt that a deal was arranged in regards to him coming in at the end of the season. Plus the reports are Shanahan is trying to assemble a team of coach's or has been calling around. You don't hear that about Gruden.

Lastly I don't think the Rooney Rule states when a HC is fired that's when the interview process starts and a minority has to be interviewed. It has been reported that Dungy was contacted and he turned down the job. Rooney Rule taken care of.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Irish minorities?

Re: Report: Shanahan in Talks with Redskins

I'm just hearing about it on ESPN980 myself. Someone very high up in the organization (either Snyder or Allen) is adamantly denying that Shanahan was there this morning. Frank and Thom pointed out that it really wouldnt make sense for them to meet at Redskins Park. where Zorn and the rest of the staff is preparing for the MNF game. JLC will be on shortly to pass on what he knows.

Re: Report: Shanahan in Talks with Redskins

ESPN980 says that Fox has retracted their initial report as being incorrect. Shanahan was not at redskins park today. Zorn will be the coach the rest of the season. JLC is up next...

I totally agree, Zorn should be given every opprotunity without looking over his shoulder the rest of the season.... Disfunctional organizations
start looking for coaches while they stilll have one...This is crap, if they arent going to retain him...Fire him right now.....

Re: Report: Shanahan in Talks with Redskins

I was leaning toward Shottenheimer, Cowher or Gruden only cause I felt we needed someone who was not going to take the crap from the players but I guess I would be happy with Shanahan. I hope he's able to bring in Kubiak with him and Alex Gibbs. Alex had the Denver OL working like a fine oiled machine. I presume he would bring in his son.

What is the other front office position that they might be looking to fill besides President? I think we can figure Shanahan will want the HC/President position. Is it the head of scouting or some other position?

I hope whoever comes in picks up better talent scouts and better positional coach's (cough, WR coach, cough).

MODS are getting pissed.

I would have taken Dungy over Shanahan though. To bad he declined.

Why? so he can sit on his sofa at home instead of sitting on the sideline collecting DS's money?

Zorn, Zorn, Zorn....why are we even worried about what Zorn thinks? He's not game planning, he's not calling plays, and he has not gotten this team in a position to play in the post season. The team is 4-9. They are out of contention. I really don't care if the team lost the last 3 games, we are out. The only thing we can do is play spoiler and check out our rookies and see what they can do for next year.

It's not like Zorn has turned this thing around or something. I think we all know Sherm Lewis fixed what Zorn could not.
