Top to Bottom, Shanahan Takes Charge

Top to bottom, Shanahan takes charge of Redskins

Quote:
But Shanahan says there's no chance of winning it all if everyone isn't buying into the plan. He likes to tell the story of how he jettisoned former first-round receivers Mike Pritchard and Anthony Miller in favor of undrafted Rod Smith and free agent Ed McCaffrey during his early years as head coach of the Broncos, the lesson being that no one is irreplaceable
That right there is a strong message to Thomas and Kelly...though I think they both make the final roster

If Kelly makes the team I hope it's on IR. Part of me thinks that Kelly should get a chance, as if you release him after telling him to make sure he's healthy it sends a bad and dangerous message. Still at this point I would much rather see AA (Armstrong and Austin) over Thomas and Kelly.

Re: Top to Bottom, Shanahan Takes Charge

Austin has shown me little...He needs to play well tonight imo...

If Armstrong plays well tonight and doesn't make the team,then we will finally know that NFL is all political BS cause that would be a crime and he would be snatched up immediately by someone else.

I want to see banks get more return chances than last week. That guy is down right dangerous.
Currently....my favorite NEW Skins
I'll actually be pissed,if he doesn't make the team.
I think he could run backwards better than ARE did for us..

I also really like that Perry Riley Kid as well from LSU.
If he plays lights out tonight...I'm not sure he doesn't make that 4th LB spot.
Probably not cause there all against 2nd and 3rd teams...but this kid can play.
Good tackler as well.

we need that around here.

Great read. Shanahan has really made an impact from top to bottom in this organization.

Re: Top to Bottom, Shanahan Takes Charge

Yeah, good article -- Shanahan is a great coach not only because he is a great 'coach' but because he brings credibility and a proven track record to the Redskins. You can't oversell the importance of organizational structure, especially in a corporation as varied in its functions like the Redskins.

Re: Top to Bottom, Shanahan Takes Charge

The article quotes Shanahan as saying that he does not carry a 2-point conversion chart because he does not need one. I found this to be tragically ironic against the Jets. Shanny should have gone for 2 on our last touchdown, which was engineered by the unstoppable Rich Bartel.

We scored with 2 minutes left, putting us up 4 points at 15-11. If you kick the extra point you go up 5 points - there is not a big difference between 4 and 5 points so late in the game. But if you get two points, you go up six points, which covers you from the scenario where they score a touchdown but miss the extra point (as had already happened earlier). If we miss getting 2 points, then we're up 4 points, which again is not that different from being up 5 points.

This was not a big deal. It was not a gamebreaker or anything. But still we should have gone for 2 points. I think Shanny should carry a chart.

Re: Top to Bottom, Shanahan Takes Charge

I hear ya Lotus, but I think it is preseason, and shanny didn't want to risk OT, more than getting the 6pt lead. Besides, our D will actually stop teams in the clutch this year!

Armstrong is making the team, I wouldn't even worry about that.

What part did you not understand that you had in bold?

Politcal B.S. is when you do something for your party rather than the team.(people)

In other words..keeping Malcolm Kelly and cutting Armstrong would fall in this category.

One is a 2nd round pick and making more money
the other isn't

Keeping Willie Parker and or L.J. over K. Williams
Both are 2-time pro bowlers
the other isn't

Does that makes since now?

Hopefully,this doesn't happen in the Shanny regime,Politics plays a huge role in decisions made regardless.

From draft pick status
Money they make
etc.

What,you think Adam Archuleta was good enough to start over the guys behind him at the time?
ah...now you see

That's what I'm talking about on that GM.

Re: Top to Bottom, Shanahan Takes Charge

I understand what you saying but the fact that Kelly was printed on the recent tickets makes me think they had BIG plans for him so if they can they might try to keep him IMO.
