I know some still don't want to believe it, but yeah he's given up his power.

3) I think we're looking at 10-6 next year. Not because Shanny is so great, but because we won't drop those games we're suppose to win in the closing minutes.

I'm pretty encouraged.
whoa, hold your horses there...I am as optimistic as anyone but a 6 game swing, I don't see it 8-8, 9-7 at best

Re: Shanahan presser thread

Guys I think it's unrealistic and unlikely that Snyder will completely recede into the background, kick his feet up on his desk and say I'll see you guys in December. That ain't happening. EVERY owner is involved to some extent.

What I think is different this time around is Snyder won't exert pressure to bend the GM's will to what he wants and thinks should be the direction. Snyder is now one voice in the overall process of making things click. He's no longer, if I could use this term, Alpha and Omega.

Again considering how we lost many of our games, I don't think a six/five game swing is unrealistic. That's just me. Many of the games we lost, we weren't outplayed. I think we all can agree on that.

you know what...I am thinking over all the losses right now, and I think you're right. New Orleans, Dallas, Philly...we clearly outplayed them and lost because of 1 or 2 plays and a s*** kicker. Plus the losses to Detroit and KC should just not have happened and that's 5 games right there..

I recant my statement, I don't think 10-6 is that far out of reach actually

Re: Shanahan presser thread

Teams going worst to first isn't uncommon, so why not us? Gotta have hope.

Remember, Miami had a 10 game swing when Parcells came in, and I think our team has more raw potential then they did. Alot of our issues revolved around self inflicted wounds, and poor coaching. I don't see those being as likely today as they were the last game of the season.

Let's remember that he had that in Denver and that's basically what got him fired. I'd prefer that he leaves the personel side to the front office. I'm fine with him having control over who stays and who goes. But I don't want a HC that wears too many hats. He needs to come in here and install some leadership, discipline and fix this high school offense.

Exactly, I'm not saying we're going to the Super Bowl or NFC Championship or anything, but a playoff berth is reasonable to expect in Shanahan's first season.

I know one thing, the NFC East is going to be hella tough next year.
