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

If anything it would be DonoHan. (1st part of one name and second part of the other name) As in 'Brangelina' or Bennifer or Vaughniston...jeez ppl...name combining 101...

Personally I think Shanovan or McNabbahan.

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....
Well!! I said when I first heard Bruce Allen was coming aboard, we were going to get older quickly, and draft picks were not going to be a plenty. My season ticket package was littered with "The Future Is Now" so reminiscent of the past.

I like Shanovan the best. Catchy. Maybe if we add Adams it can be Flozoshanovan. Heck. Let's keep adding all the old free agents. FlozoshanovanLJarker. Cool? cool.

That said, this off-season does not count in the 1 Player away scenario. We cut 10 players before FA started, that was a lot of deadwood. We brought in competition at RB, a new QB, and I believe a new OLine structure through the draft and FA. We are going under serious construction right now and if it is done correctly, we will compete. But it's not because we were one player away.
Yup. What this FO is doing similar but different than Snyderrato. As someone else mentioned, and as evident just by his comments on the Haynesworth issue, Shanahan is much more focused on the talent working as a team rather than aquiring talent for talent's sake. Yes we have holes. So does every team out there. The difference between teams that compete for the tops spots and the middle of the road teams is good teams maximize what talent they have and play to those strengths.

Seriously, does anyone think NO was the most talented team in the league? They had some serious DB issues. Offensively, their line is not made up of All-Pros last I checked.

Good coaching and by extension, good execution win games. With the talent level in the NFL, it's rare that you see a team just outclassed talent wise.

Well said.

and no offense, we dbut this is a retarded thread when on't even have a starting left tackle yet.
What makes you think we won't have a starting left tackle by september?
They have a great chance to get Okung, or someone in the draft. They can still sign a FA, or make a few trades. My point is, I feel very confident that Shanahan and Allen will get what they need to compete before the season starts. Do you really think they are done making moves to improve the team?

I am trying to understand why many people are so negative about the team, and the direction. They are trying to win a championship now! Mike's son is in line to take over the team when he retires. He will build this team up for long term success.

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

Of course it takes more than 1 player, but we now have a playmaker at THE most important position. That is huge. They can now focus on draft picks and getting system players in place to fill holes. The team is a whole lot closer to being a contender now then they were last week, and that is genuine reason for optimism.

I can deal with that. Or ShacNabb or McShan or DeMacShan
But Shanovan works as we are on the Shano-Van to the playoffs.

SHUT THE F' UP!!!

So, what's this thread about?
Having real optimism that the team will be successful.
The team is headed for an exciting season, and the future looks bright.

I am middle of the road, not really negative, but definitely a huge wait and see. But to claim that McNabb/Shanahan have us going to the playoffs, AS THE TEAM IS NOW, is way too early. Let's get to training camp, see how the LT spot is handled, and the OL in general. 2 weeks before the draft I would be calling any fan site thread that talks playoffs a retarded thread.

Your original post could just have easily been:
Hi I am a fan, my team made changes, we are going to the playoffs. Yay. (oh yeah we were 4-12, and let 10 players go, and don't have a starting LT on our roster) But we are there Man! Yeah!

I don't think it is too early, they have taken major steps toward improving the roster and the mentality, and there is plenty of time to go before the season starts. It will take more than just McNabb, but he is the key piece.
Vegas cut in half the Redskin's odds of winning the Super Bowl with just his acquisition. That is impressive!

Not sure why trying to have a positive outlook is reason for disdain.
For the first time in a long time, I have an optimistic view of my team.
I was never comfortable with Zorn and Campbell, and The Gibbs move for Brunell was a head scratcher form the get.
While I am not totally convinced about the shift to a 3-4, I do realize it is a high pressure defense, and where the league is heading.
We have the best HC/QB combination that I can ever remember, and that is a huge reason for excitement.
