There is no way Dallas of the 90's, The Bills of the late 80s, or the Steelers of the 70s could have been competitive long term with free agency. Even the Skins would have had trouble since it's unlikely we could have retained the Hogs for a long period.
Good point Mc2guy. Free agency is the main culprit for so much turnover in the league and one of the things I dislike the most. I think you hit the nail on the head.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Matty has an excellent article about an uncapped year listed under Redskins News by Mark Maske. There will be tougher restrictions on free agency in an uncapped year.

Billick is meeting with the Bills as well this week

I think though that in the end the sleeper choice there will be Brian Schottenheimer

I think Billick would take it but I would be shocked if Cowher did.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Of all of the jobs that are potentially out there, Cowher wants Buffalo?

Charlie Casserly on CBS Pregame expects Mike Shanahan to be Skins Head Coach - Kyle Shanahan to be Off Coor & Mike Zimmer to be Def Coordinator..

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

According to pft, mort said the league is requiring the skins to interview a minority candidate again after Zorn is fired. This could delay things or create problems if no minority candidates agree to a sham interview. At this point, jerry likely knows he won't be retained in any capacity so I don't know what motivation he has to interview again.

This is complete and utter bullshit if this is true.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

I'm still not 100% on Zimmer. I mean I think that may play out for a while while Zimmer sees what other opportunities may be out there

Kyle Shanahan for sure, he'll be on board probably at the end of the month

No it is not. The interview with Jerry Gray was complete and utter bullshit on Gray and Snyder's part.

If not Kyle then maybe Jerry Gray. Gray and Mike's kid Kyle are both UT graduates and Gray is very big into the Austin thing. Could it be something to the Gray interview for DC as opposed to HC, or perhaps even another interview?

My understanding is that it's more of a request than a requirement, since Gray was interviewed when Cerrato was in charge and now Allen is in charge.

However, I think the bigger issue is that whatever the Redskins did they clearly checked with the Fritz Pollard Alliance and got its blessing but maybe didn't quite check with the NFL league offices. It's a bit surprising if they didn't do that. But if that is the case, it still strikes me as a bit odd that the FPA said it was fine.
