Washington Redskins: How Daniel Snyder found his man in Mike Shanahan

And how Clinton Portis was a selfish little bastard. I take back calling him a guy who gave about 85-90% to the team. He gave about 70% or less.

Re: Washington Redskins: How Daniel Snyder found his man in Mike Shanahan

Clinton Portis is a piece of shit, and I hope he never plays another down in the NFL. So glad that asshole is off this team and never broke Riggins record. It's a shame a good man like Zorn got shit on by our front office. Sure he was over his head, but they didn't help him much.

I also want to comment on our owner making decisions for a billion dollar franchise while liquored up. No wonder all his other business ventures flop.

Thanks for posting this SCP.

Re: Washington Redskins: How Daniel Snyder found his man in Mike Shanahan

I want to add, that after reading this, it answered the lingering question of why did this idiot (Zorn) run the swinging gate after the defense called a time out and prepared themselves.


It was his way of giving Dan Snyder a big fat finger (on national TV at that) while he was headed out the door. He knew he was fired.





Now that I look back on it, I applaud Zorn for that move. Snyder deserved to see that shit and be embarrassed.

Re: Washington Redskins: How Daniel Snyder found his man in Mike Shanahan

Dude, all this confirms is that Portis is a piece of crap, and DS is the biggest POS ever ... I don't give a crap how bad of a coach Zorn was. You can't cut a guys knees out from under him and then expect him to lead a team.

Re: Washington Redskins: How Daniel Snyder found his man in Mike Shanahan

Great article.

NC Skins would you really still want Zorn coaching this football team now? DS made a move and more importantly has stuck to his guns and stayed out of the way. I applaud the guy for it. The fact he made the flight to Denver after getting liquored up in an airport hanger with his private jet sitting outside, I find pretty damn baller! LOL... what a f'n story to tell the grandkids... As far as him failing in his business ventures, failure is part of life in business and he has had plenty of successes. Including turning our franchise into a 1.7 billion dollar team. He also had the business where with all to make the money to buy the franchise. The guy may have made a ton of mistakes running the Redskins in the past, but he finally got the hell out of the way and turned it over to a group of guys to lead us back to being contenders again. I applaud the guy for owning his mistakes and backing off to let football guys do their thing.

HAIL! We are back baby. We are back... We are getting Doug back!

Hell no. I didn't think Zorn was right for the job even back then. Going from a QB coach to HC without being a coordinator? That had "TRAP" written all over it, and I even admitted as much by saying he was in way over his head. It's like trying to learn how to swim by jumping in the deepest part of the pool. Often not a good idea.

I applaud DS for doing exactly what I've wanted him to do all along. Hire capable minds, and get the hell out of the way.

Agreed, it also makes Shanny seem like Danny's booty call. So there's that...

I am going to wait till the redskins are an above .500 team before applauding DS for leading us to 'being contenders'. Also, how has he owned his mistakes? his hiring of Shanahan shows off everything that is wrong about his ownership. I put him and Al Davis as the worst owners in the league.

Re: Washington Redskins: How Daniel Snyder found his man in Mike Shanahan

Thanks for posting this SCP. It just confirms my thoughts about CP. He was a major distraction and a Prima Donna who put himself above team. I'm glad he's gone.
