Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

For what it's worth Wilbon said Shannahan will be the head coach of the Redskins by the time PTI goes off the air.

So in your opinion, the Eagles surrendered a first round bye and the ability to have a playoff game at home, risked getting their starters hurt, JUST so they would not "show thier hand"?

C'Mon are you SERIOUS? Were you on Zorns staff?

When you make a speculation, at least have the courtesy to have evidence to back it up.
Totally serious. If they win would they get the bye? I think there are other NFC teams that have the bye and I don't think any were NFC East teams. Most likely they would have faced Dallas again. Why go out and play your hand? If they lose they knew they would get Dallas and would have more current film to study as to how they would be played. If they lose you don't think Dallas is going to say hey it worked lets just keep up the good work. Practice the same routine for the play offs and have the Eagles come out and stop everything your trying to do. Basically ensuring them a pass to the second round.

Yep I guess I'm just crazy. I most likely am wrong but I don't like either team. It will be funny if I'm right though. The Eagles come out and blast Dallas in the play offs.

As the day worked out, Philly would have had the bye week if they won. I think Dallas played to get in, something they haven't done in a long time, and Philly played an overconfident game after several tough but strong wins. I would be shocked if Philly doesn't hand it to them when they meet Saturday night. I would hate for Dallas to break their streak.

No, I know Shanahan is interested in the 3-4. He even went to the Steeler's and Patriots camp prior to this season back in Aug. in order to see how good 3-4 defenses are run.

I thought he was wondering why Zimmer himself. I presume cause he is one of the easiest to get since his contract is up and Cinci has not offered up a better dollar amount.

I know I'm giving Sand a hard time. Unfortunatly with the Eagles you never know what team will show up. Flip a coin. They could show up and lay a duck again, but I doubt it. I also don't believe Dallas is just so good they will shut out the Eagles again. Not going to happen. But I do believe Dallas may have shown too much of their hand. They were way up and still trying to beat the Eagles into submission. I think it will fuel the Eagles for being embarrassed and they will come out with a better game plan.

So I hope. I too don't want Dallas to break their streak. Then I can watch the Saints or Vikings hand it to the Eagles.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Looking at the bracket I guess it would be the Saints to would battle whoever wins between the Eagles and Dallas.

Also, we might be adding Rick Dennison as OL coach, Bobby Turner as RB coach, and Jeff Goodman as Director of Pro Personnel, while Brown gets bumped up to Director of Player Personnel and Scott Campbell is shown the door. All very speculative at this point
I would be pretty happy if that happens. Zimmer is an ex-cowboy so I kinda don't want bring him onboard.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

I think it's kind of funny that a good amount of our potential head coaches look the same . Two of them for obvious reasons.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Who would be your defensive coordinator if you could chose from any of the guys in the league?

Zim is a good choice I suppose although after watching last night's game I don't know if he is that great either.

I would love to have GW back, but I doubt that will ever happen.

If I had to answer that question I would like to have Dick Lebeau, but that ain't gonna happen.

Mike Shannahan has been my pick since last year, I know we have a great season ahead, just remember and I am laying this out front, No matter what shanny do, if someone blast him, I will be blasting you, because for once, even including Joe Gibbs, we have a coach with a 2K style.....

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Would Shanny want someone who has trouble writing the word "does" defending him?

I'm not blasting him. I'm blasting you, you didn't say anything about blasting you.
