Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

This is good news! I'm having a hard time seeing the downside of this hiring. I do not see BUSINESS AS USUAL.

He has always been a genius, Belichick became a genius when he got to New England, because in Clevland, he wasn't even close, Yea Shanny has two superbowls with John Elway, but guess how many Belichick has with Tom Brady, and without him he has none. So let's not make it seem like mike is a failure. Because he is far from it.

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

I found the "Rise and Fall of Zorn" article interesting because it says that one of the first things that Bruce Allen did was cancel Friday coach-owner lunches. Allen apparently did so on the theory that the buck stops with him, not with Snyder. So Rick Snider's cynical article is already mistaken in saying that, "no one will push for Snyder to throttle down his involvement." Bruce Allen already has.

We have an organizational new day! True football people are running the team with minimal interference. Glory be! HTTR!

I doubt Allen or Shanahan would have come here unless they were 110% sure that they would be calling the shots. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if there is language in their contracts ensuring they have control and Snyder needs to keep his nose out of things.
I'm sure Marty thought the same thing when he signed. I'm sure Jim Zorn thought he would be calling plays when he signed. Last week Bruce Allen had "final say." This week, its Mike Shanahan. As far as Schefter, he's far from neutral and I wouldnt expect him to say anything else. I'm not beleiving Snyder's committed to staying out of things until I see it for an extended period of time.

The Broncos will still owe Shanahan approximately $3.5 million per year in 2010 and 2011 to essentially have him coach the Redskins. Then again, Bowlen will save roughly $3.5 million each of the next two years now that their former coach is no longer unemployed.

The fact Shanahan settled for about the same money he made with the Broncos — and turned down a more lucrative offer from the Buffalo Bills — should quell speculation he was trying to sell his services to the highest bidder. Shanahan's primary goal in his quest for his third head coaching job was to find a team with a vacancy that had the best chance to win the Super Bowl.

I like to hear that Shanny wanted to be here and wasn't looking for just the money.
Denver pays 1/2 his first two years pay? If so, quite a financial triumph for the SKins! Is that legal?

What are you basing this on? Do you have any evidence to support any of your rambles?

I believe Denvers money is on top of the 7mill that he gets from the skins. So he gets 10.5 mill each year for the first 2 years. No matter what, he won't be hurting, and we didn't just throw high bid money. Maybe that's why it took a little longer(2 days, not 1 ) He expected to say a number, 10mil, and get it without a fight, I think Snyder has been know to do that in the past.

So you're saying the team is never going to change. Then why bother even commenting on these things? I think everyone is in wait and see mode, but you sound almost sure that this is going to fail.

Everyone is NOT in the wait and see mode. Everyone is drinking the koolaid. I would love if the Poll in this thread had an option for wait and see. its certainly where I would have casted my vote. I'm almost certain it will fail because this is too similar to the Marty and Gibbs situations and neither of those worked out. I think Shanahan-the-coach is the 2nd best option we could have gone. if I had to rate my happiness with that aspect of the hire, i'd probably say 8 out of 10. Its just his personnel history and the front office structure that i think is likely to screw this whole thing up.

Snyder may very well have changed and is now willing to leave the big decisions to "football guys." Bruce Allen may have somehow learned how to be a personnel guy. Shanahan may very well have learned how to be a personnel guy too. but given the histories of all three men in the areas i mentioned, I feel skepticism is appropriate in this situation.
