I agree with Daseal we have to crawl before we walk. The changes that have taken place have given us hope, now we need to see hope transform into reality. I'll be watching.

I want to see every player subject to the same team rules - - particularly when it comes to practicing and conditioning.

I want the Redskins to be the youngest team in the NFL - - meaning that a lot of "long-in-the-tooth vets" will be looking for work.

I want the Redskins to make a decision on who is their QB of the future by the end of the 2010 season - - and then to stick with that decision for at least the next 3 full seasons.

Most of all, I want to hear that Vinny Cerrato has gotten a job as a Sherpa taking mountain climbers up Mount Everest so that he is far enough away that he cannot find any opportunity to nibble on Danny Boy's earlobe and throw sand into the gears of the new regime.



Not far enough away. Vinny needs to be on the moon or, at least, in Antarctica.

Shanahan is a Offensive Genius, thats without question, Jason Campbell or Sam Bradford, we will Score and adverage of 26 points next year, now I am thinking outside of our division, we will have a light schedule, so we won 4 games this year.... can anyone say without a doubt that is we had this adverage per game, we couldn't have won 6 more games. Dare I say 7? So my theory is that Shanny will have us starting off hot.... like 4-1 then we taper off to 2-3, so now we are 6-4, then we finish with a winning record the last 6 games. 4-2, which makes us 10-6, I think somewhere in there, it will be a game we might pull off, with a lil magic.... maybe 11-5, So my final anaylis is that we finish the division, the top team in our division or second place. Which 10 gets us in the playoff's, 11 get's us a home game. I can see us doing something special in the playoff's and maybe losing the 2nd playoff game going into 2011 with Superbowl asperations.
The enthusiasm is great, however transitions take time.

Your Top 10 Defense could possibly have a completely different look if Shanny and (Your DC Here) implement a hybrid 3-4 defense similar to the Steelers and Patriots. I don't see the dropoff being great, but it's going to take time for the defense to re-gel and assure that they don't let games slip away in the waning moments. And while Shanny is an offensive genius as you call him, it's going to take time to teach up the offensive line (whomever is left over plus whomever comes in via draft and free agency) the new blocking schemes. Plus while the offense is similar in nature, there is going to be a learning curve, especially if Campbell is here running the show while Bradford/Clausen/Tebow/McCoy learn the ropes.

10-11 wins would be awesome, but is it realistic? Any improvement is good improvement. I think 7 wins with 2 coming in division would be a vast improvement over the 4 wins and 0 division wins from this year. I'd say 10-11 wins might be possible in 2011, but more probably in 2012.

here here! I don't expect this team to win a playoff spot. If they start to put pieces together, then i'll get excited year 2 or 3.

I really was pulling for Gruden but since the writting is on the wall. M.Shanahon is a proven coach but I'm not that familiar with him. What type of offense does he run again? I am excited to see what he does with the O-LINE.

Like most have said just discipline and a true chain of command no more, i got a big contract so i wont keep my conditioning attitudes. I truly hope DS keeps his relationships with the players professional and that he doesnt give the players that option where he is available for consultation.

Vinny doesn't pick players, oh hey look! 2010, great success.

I think overall people will be happy with a winning season. Sadly, there are a bunch of Shanahan haters already that I'm sure they will be bitching and whining the first time we lose a game and won't be happy with an 8-8 or 9-7 record.

There's no way anybody could have said it any better.

good post, and i agree. the first thing that came to mind after the giants game was what i was watching wasn't even professional football. im not sure what it was? i have never seen the skins look like that, even in some of the bad years. i hope to god we will never look like that again. while i do care about our record, lets get top the point where we are competitive EVERY week

Shananahan is able to get the team to look as good on the field as they do on paper.

I would be ecstatic with a 9-7 wild card birth.
