I don't know if the Drew Brees of the Schottenheimer era would have turned this offense around anyway. Payton and Brees are a fantastic duo, but I don't know if it would have worked here.

I know but damn I hate missing out on QBs

Let me answer for Smootsmack- Hell no. I'll be the first to admit, MS has bungled the QB situation to an extent. However, look at the steamy pile of ish of a football team he was handed. An old, crappy roster bereft of speed and talent. You can't turn that around in 22 regular season games. We're getting younger and faster, but this team was so badly in the toilet when the current coaching staff took over. You don't hire a 2x Super Bowl champ only to fire him so quickly.

Things take time. And for god's sake, he's 3-3 not 0-6.

Also, who in the media is calling for Shanny's head?

Jason Reid will be tomorrow in the WaPo you can bet. And most of the DJs on 106.7 (not they really matter). But when you hear so many voices saying the same thing, you get concerned...

First of all, The Junkies are a bunch of losers. They aren't sports media. They're local crap. And Jason Reid? Really? The same guy who SWORE the fix was in all summer long and that there was absolutely no question John Beck was going to be the opening day starter? LOL. That guy isn't even worth reading. He's absolutely terrible.

Oh trust me, I know, but like I said, I get worried given the way coaches are so easily cut loose in this town. I just desperately want continuity and get nervous we won't have that if we have a bad season.

I've never agreed with you more than on the last two posts of yours

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Panthers)

You asked me this same question last spring. Answer is still no. In a previous life I worked with those 106.7 guys. Totally unprofessional group of people. The stories I could tell you...are not for a family site like this one

Re: Smoot Lays the Smack Down (Redskins vs. Panthers)

People always overreact. Sure, you feel bad about losing, but as always the sky isn't falling.

1) Beck looked good. One reason he didn't look as good in the first half was they were running 90% of the time. He didn't get a rhythm until the 2nd half. There were 3-5 dropped passes that didn't help, and our defense sucked big time to destroy his chances. We can win with him if our D gets back.

2) Defense What happened? What's up with that talk about a top 5 to top 10 defense?? Was not having Atogwe to back up Hall/Wilson the reason? The D was the reason we were 3-1, and it is one of the reasons we lost the last two games. The first half against Eagles and the 2nd half of this game the defense gave up scoring drives 7 of 9 drives. Like they weren't even playing the game. Given the Bills offense, we're going to have a tough time next week as well.

3) Shanahan will not be fired. That just stupid.
4) Injuries - Every team goes through them, but seems like our best / key players are always fragile. Moss, Cooley, TW, Hightower, Atogwe, Licht.
5) Remember, each loss hurts, but perhaps the silver lining on these is that it was supposed to be a rebuilding year and the losses give us a better shot at a better draft pick /QB.

On the whole, I'm starting to think secondary/CB is a bigger priority than I thought for next year.
