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.

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.
Excellent post. I think Snyder understands now that his intense participation of the past is the wrong approach. He still will have some involvement and still has things to learn (like patience), but to me this is the most important development with the Skins since Snyder took over.

We'll still make mistakes. But at least they will be the mistakes of football professionals rather than those of owners who play Madden in real life.

Re: Shanahan presser thread

Anyone else find Shannahan's quote from Marty, in that he said "if you have a chance to work for Snyder, take it." surprising?

I think now more then ever that Marty's main beef was Vinny. If anything I'm starting to think that Vinny was the Dick Cheney of the Redskins.

Re: Shanahan presser thread

Maybe Shotty blames whispering-in-the-wings Vinny, not Snyder, for how things went down.

But, yeah, I was surprised to hear that.

Was interesting to note that today he was nowhere near the podium, someone did say he was in the front row but that's a departure from his norm.

Excellent comparison! And just like Cheney, Vinny is history.

No trophies either. I liked that. I really wonder what they're going to do with Clinton Portis? We gotta get the scoop on that.

SmootSmack, what's the word on the street, bro?

What a message that would send if they cut CP loose.

Re: Shanahan presser thread

I think a lot of us are forming our opinion of Snyder based on speculation. We don't know the full extent of his involvement when it came to hiring coaches and bringing in players. I'm sure that he will allow Shanahan and Allen to run this football team. These are guys are great football minds. Why does everyone assume that Snyder will interfere with them running our football team?

I'll bet they wait for March 6, the day they go officially uncapped, to turn Portis loose. It would be nice if it were sooner, though.

And Snyder was like Obama thinking he could fix everything with money.

It would appear from the way he sounded he feels as though he can work with Jason but he needs to see more (like offseason preperation and conditioning) from Portis before he makes a decision. He'll be looking for a certain level of commitment from Portis.
