Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

In a few hours all of this is going to be moot any way.

True. It will be official what we've pretty much known for a while (Report: Shanahan to DC done deal)

i think statements like this, or "its not even debateable that cowher is better than shanahan" come off as ignorant.

Sure, I think it's safe to say Shanahan will be official very soon.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Personally I would prefer Cowher to Shanahan. But to claim that there is a wide gap between them is problematic. There are good arguments for both.

My preference soon becomes irrelevant, anyway.

And I think it is fair to say he would not get that here. Shanahan has a higher upside out of the gate, and knows DS and BA and can work with them. Cowher would come here like a raging maniac and tear the team down, DS would get antsy and we would be right back to where we were with Marty. IF this franchise is going to work, there has to be cohesion and understanding of proper roles. I think Shanahan showed far more ability to work with what Bowlen wanted, and that allowed Bowlen to trust him. Cowher simply came into a family that believed in stay the course and we will win. And he did eventually. We are not a "stay the course" franchise. We need a coach and GM who DS respect completely, and who can talk to him clearly. I think that makes MS a better fit here, even if BHA's statistics show Cowher to have had a marginally better career.

Hopefully Shanahan's not getting tips on coaching the Skins from his golf buddy
