You don't ever know if who you hire is the best hire until you see how they perform the job. On paper, some other coach might be the perfect fit but can't translate it into his job. At least we know that Shanahan has been very successful in the NFL and knows how to win. His resume speaks for itself. I'd hire him in a heartbeat.

With that said, I agree with Paintrain and think "Best post ever" sentiment.
I get it, our win-loss record is shitty, but with the move of hiring Allen and then getting Shanahan, isn't Snyder trying to turn those numbers around? I mean I don't think that Snyder ever brought someone in and thought to himself, "I hope this adds more losses to the team!!" My point was that Snyder is trying, has he made some piss poor choices? Sure, but other than when he brought back Gibbs, this is probably his best move since he owned the team, IMO...

Both Shanahan and Cowher have impressive resumes. Who's the best one? That's pretty subjective. Strong cases can be made for both. But it comes down to who is the best fit for the organization. Shanahan just seems to be the better fit for a variety of reasons. If Cowher had a genuine interest here, I'd find it hard to believe he wouldn't be considered.

Re: Snyder Hires Shanahan Not the GM

It doesn't even matter if Snyder wanted Shanihan. What matters is that we will have compitent people running the football operation. Do you really think that Shanahan & Allen are going to let Snyder tell them what to do? They may let him feel involved but I am very confident that Snyder will not be making any more football decisions as long as Allen & Shanihan are in town. That is what really matters.

We've all been screaming for a 'football guy' which Allen clearly is. We clearly need a powerful, respected head coach, which Shanahan clearly is. Look, Snyder is going to be involved at some level. Get used to it or get over it. I'm choosing to believe that he's going to let Shanahallen do their thing and not micro-manage them.

If I'm proven wrong then blast me for being naive but the negative nellies who will find something wrong with everything the franchise does are really annoying.

Re: Snyder Hires Shanahan Not the GM

I think when you are looking for a new coach, it's best to strike quickly. We saw what happened 2 years ago when you string out the coaching search.

This process didn't start yesterday... Allen and Snyder undoubtedly had a plan in place weeks ago.

Yeah, 10 weeks.

Gruden apparently out of the job hunt also.

That leaves Tom Cable and Fassel.

Re: Snyder Hires Shanahan Not the GM

It appears obvious that Snyder hired them both, therefore the question will linger in the minds of many, Did he do what he's doing because he's actually changed his ways, or did he do what he had to do? I'm inclined to believe there's a little of both.

Two years ago we were forced to string along the coaching search because no one wanted to work for Snyderatto. Cerratos gone now; Snyder's allegedly stepped back, and a real GM has been hired. Two years ago Bill Cowher told Snyder, No Thanks. Yesterday, he called; presumably to ask for an interview. The change in our front office structure has completely changed the "appeal" of the redskins head coching job. Shanahan doesn't have any other legitimate potential suitors right now. We have all the leverage. There's no reason to rush things. The job has only truly been vacant one day. Instead of handing the job on a silver platter to anyone, we should interview several top candidates. Shanahan may end up being the best option for us out there, but it would be foolish not to consider all our options.

You don't know that he called to inquire about the HC position. You just know that they reportedly spoke to each other

Cowher incidentally is reportedly scheduled to meet with the Bills again.
