Unfortunately, that is not the prevailing opinion of Dan Snyder.
The Danny is #1 problem with the skins...and his meddlesome ways are the reason....and everyone knows it.

At least the #2 problem is now gone

Well, I tend to think it is overblown, not that it is untrue, just overblown. I want to say SmootSmack has said that as well but I could be wrong. Regardless of that though, DS started to try to change that image at the press conference by stating that Bruce Allens decisions are Redskin decisions. Did he stumble, was it hard for him to say, yes and yes, but I think he is trying to impress upon Shanahan and others that he understands the concept.

Also if you listen to cowboys fans JJ is the #1 and #2 problem with the cowboys, from there its a 3 way tie between Wade, Garrett and JJ. so i think it is fair to ask why would Shanahan want to go into that evironment.

In terms of your comments on the quality of players. I would think Shanahan has enough ego to think he can fix any player related issue, so that would not be his deciding factor.

And media wise, Dallas and Washington have fair shares of media attention assuming any type of competitive team.

Maybe I've missed it but I haven't seen one person in this thread mention Bruce Allen. According to the insiders around the league, Shannahan and Allen were a packaged deal. Sure it's possible he may go somewhere else, but the fact of the matter is that Allen was virtually hand picked by Shannahan to run the front office.

True! This was mentioned once earlier in the thread but I'm glad that you magnified it. This is very important. We hold the trump card, it would seem.

Maybe. But then he might be getting in the way of his son's possible promotion. I don't know if a dad will compete with a son for a job.

There are insiders (not myself) who say that is not true, and Allen in no way guarantees Shanahan

Brittany Murphy?

EDIT: holy cow, I just saw that she died of a heart attack. At 32 years old. Terrible.

On December 20, 2009, celebrity news website TMZ.com reported[14] that Brittany Murphy had died in the shower of her Los Angeles home of cardiac arrest. Her mother found her, and rushed to the hospital. Mainstream media sources later confirmed the reports via the Los Angeles County Coroner's office
RIP 32 yo very sad

Smoot, what do you think the chances are we get Shanahan? Or, put another way, what are the chances Jerry Jones DOESN'T want Shanahan?

Tough to say. San Diego is out now that they're going to (if they haven't already) give Norv Turner a contract extension. Bears are a longshot with the money they have tied to Lovie Smith and they're frugal habits. So that leaves Houston, Dallas, and DC as the most likely. And I think all have a pretty equal shot.

Dallas is closer to home for Shan Wow (Matty chose not to include my new nickname for Shanahan when he posted my text to him. That bastard-I'm adding him to my ignore list), and they already have a strong running game as well as Tony Romo (who Shanahan is a fan of, both are Eastern Illinois guys). So that's their advantage

Houston has probably the least "intrusive" owner and already has his son and many of his other former assistants on the staff. So that's their advantage.

The big question is really if JJ is willing to eat the cost of Jason Garrett or if he can convince Shanahan to keep him on the staff. Gun to my head today I'll say Shanahan ends up here. Cowboys either promote Garrett or bring back Mike Zimmer to be the head coach at a fraction of the cost they would pay someone like Shanahan. And Houston either stays with Kubiak if they make the playoffs, and if not goes after Bill Cowher (and short of that Leslie Frazier)

Interesting. I dont think money will be an important factor for Jones. According to PFT, he was offering to pay $25MM to host a boxing match there. I think a lot of what Florio writes is total crap, but i think he was on the money when he opined that Shanahan was just using Snyder to force Jerry Jones' hand.
