That's it! I've wanted to place his teeth. Of course they're rat teeth. Brilliant!

I'm excited to see what they put together and how well the system runs next year.
Isn't this just the 'see what people have done in the past and expect the same result in the future'?

Kind of like bringing back Gibbs, Joe Bugel, The Smurfs #2, Wanting Russ Grimm as coach.

I'm glad these guys had successes where they were but that doesn't translate piece by piece to our team. They have completely different variables here then they had at their respective places.

...The same result or pattern will not translate piece by piece to our situation in Washington. Eventually one has to work with the independent variables or available resources in front of them.

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

Meh, anything is better than Zorn but I'm not totally sold on Shanahan. You just have to wonder if he is capable of winning especially after 3 consecutive mediocre seasons. God help us all.

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

I guess some ppl ( skinnytee) would think hiring Jesus himself would be a bad hire lol Seriously man this is shanny's team, Allen will also have his say in every matter.. What would make you happy? I guess some people will never be satisfied..

I watch college football like it's my job and I'm telling you this kid he's not that good. He oozes of bust.

Did Elway ever win a superbowl without Shanny? People keep throwing around the info that Shanny couldn't win without Elway. Well, Elway couldn't get the job done as well withouth Shannahan. Im guessing there was quite a few players that made the Shannahan/Elway era successful. We always give a coach or player to much credit.

I'm not totally thrilled on Shanahan having final say on personnel either-though I'm sure there will be a strong staff supporting and informing him-Shanahan is notorious for being a risk-taker in personnel decisions. So we'll have some head scratchers for sure.

But I'm excited about Shanahan the coach and Kyle Shanahan the OC

Just grosses me out. Shanny is up $7M, I think he can afford the penthouse suite at the Four Seasons in downtown DC.


I'm not comforted by the fact Shanny is literally getting into Snyder's bed tonight after being wined & dined & $6.9'ed.
You really do get riled up about the most inane things don't you? It's not like Snyder lives in a 2 bedroom apartment you know

It's much less than what Shanahan was originally asking for. That's all I know

Re: Shanahan The New Head Coach Of the Redskins

Do you know if this means Shanny will have final say on the draft SmootSmack? I would expect him to have a strong imput but I'm hoping BA has final say in that area.

This whole decade is starting out in a better way than Snyders first decade. I hope it is the rejuvination of this franchise that every fan has looked for since JG was re-hired.

I hope Mike brings a passion to win and he and Allen make the football decisions while Snyder stays out of it. I think we'll only know if this is the MO in a couple years, based on the W-L record.
They'd been to the playoffs twice in four years before Zorn. Plus owners are usually going to just refer the prevous regime. I mean I could be wrong but I don't think when the Lions hired Jim Schwartz they were like "for just about the entire franchise's history we have failed to live up to our expectations..."
