I'm not a fan of the DonoShan.

Someone came up with Shanovan Era. It just sound better.

Agreed. "Redskins Ride the Shanovan to Super Bowl Title" sounds better

And a right tackle, and some guards, and a safety. I think that in previous years playoffs would have been a no, but in the east the eagles have gotten worse, as have new york, so we have a chance to move up. plus we play the rams and lions this year. We do have a tough schedule however with three solid NFC north teams and 4 afc south teams we could lose to. My guess is we are 9-7/10-6 with a chance going into the last week.

At this moment, this is not a playoff team.

A lot of elements have to come together quickly, but I think most will agree it's going to be interesting to see just what all the newness is going to produce.

Despite all the changes there will be many who will be profoundly dissapointed if this team does not make the playoffs.

Since Coach/GM Shan took over, the over-riding question has been; "Who is the QB and leader for this team?" It was clear from the beginning that Big Mike wanted his own guy to lead his team. He finally found him right up 95 in Philly. ShanAllen now know what their QB's abilities are, and they can pick and choose the players to fit the scheme they intend to run.

McNabb will be the locker-room leader, and the on-field leader that Coach Mike wants and needs. Offensive co-ordinator Kyle can now unleash his full playbook, and have full confidence in Donovan being able to run and execute all the plays.

The receivers will all be better as Donovan is a move in the pocket passer who can extend plays, the running game will be better as defenses have to respect McNabb's arm, and the line will be better because Shanahan knows what he is doing.

I don't know how they will do it yet; be it trades, the draft, or picking up additional free agents; but we can rest easy in knowing that Mike and Bruce will get the pieces in place to compete this year.
There are 2 main reasons that I believe the Redskins will make the playoffs this year:

Reason number 1: Mike Shanahan, and Reason number 2: Donovan McNabb.

I rate Shanny as 3 wins better than Zorn, and McNabb as 3 wins better than Campbell. I can now see this team winning 10 games this year.
Philly is now rebuilding, and I expect a sweep. I believe we will split with Dallas and the Giants. I expect wins against Detroit, Tampa, St. Louis, and Jacksonville. Remember, Mike Shanahan is coaching. That would give us 8 wins, and DonoShan will find a way to win at least 2 games from the remaining opponents: Packers, Vikes, Colts, Texans, Bears, and Titans.

Shanahan and McNabb already have the full faith, confidence, and trust from the players. McNabb knows how to lead, and he has a Mission now. He has something to prove, and I expect him to have Laser Focus on the task at hand, and to keep everyone else focused as well.

My prediction: Playoffs this year, and a Super Bowl Championship in 3 years. I believe Mike and McNabb both retire after 4 years together.
Now is the time to get behind this team and enjoy the ride.
Best point so far regarding the mcnabb acquisition! Execution, execution, execution.

SHUT THE F' UP!!!

So, what's this thread about?

They better prepare for disappointment. This team wasnt 1 player away from being a contender and still has a lot of weaknesses.

Agree but, (most) teams that have gone to the SB were not 1 player away from being a contender. But somehow they got there anyway. That is the reason why you don't see a lot of back to back SB teams.

A lot of guys are using this "were not going anywhere because we are not 1 player away thing" but if history proves anything it makes no diff.

If they play inspired and as a team they can overcome there "weaknesses"

IMO

Re: How DonoShan will take us to the Playoffs this year.

IF we get to the playoffs it will be a testament to Shanahan's abilities to get the most out of his players, not merely because McNabb is here instead of Campbell. Every action that the FO has made has been to get this group of players focused on winning, not focused on individuals. We have had talent for many years, we have not had that talent work towards the same goal. Maybe now we will, but it is still WAY to early to predict playoffs, or even an 8-8 record.

This team is being constructed to "win now".....expectations are high, just as they always are this time of year. The thing to watch for will be the fan reaction if this outfit does not perform to the expectations.

Honestly, haven't we always had a "win now" mentality? or the "1 big player away from the superbowl?"

I honestly can't remember 1 year where anyone ever said we are preparing for the future.

Things seem no different now than with Snyderato....Old players being signed, trading draft picks, win now, etc....
