That confused me as well. Why walk around with 4k and your passport for a trip to Pittsburg. It makes no sense.

The passport is for when he gets run out of town.

There have been reports Albert Connell has been detained trying to board a flight to the Caribbean using a stolen passport and 3700 cash money...interesting

You guys are missing the obvious - bounty money.

I can see Shanny slamming the cash on the table:

"Any defensive player that touches the opposing QB before the whistle will receive ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS."

"Any player who makes an open field tackle... BOOM! There's a g-note for you!"

"If the other team is forced to punt, ALL DEFENSIVE PLAYERS will receive ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS."

Ok I'll stop...

PS - The passport is obvious too - postgame trip to Canada for drugs and prostitutes.

Really really don't wanna sound like I'm defending Shanahan, but he's had some good defenses. Solid to elite defense helped him win SBs, and he had a few more top defenses in Denver. But he's a sub-par GM/talent evaluator outside RB and QB (I guess). And now he's a terrible effing coach too...

Haven't you been saying we have a talented team?

It sounds crazy at first but I think this team (talent-wise) is very similar to the one Mike inherited with the exception at QB, where this squad gets the clear edge on talent. But the other similarity is there's almost no depth, which was the main complaint about the roster he inherited. Where did we start the season with proven/quality depth outside WR and possibly TE? Obviously not in the secondary. And not on the d-line either because as soon as Carriker went down the d-line couldn't make an impact. Same can be said for LB. Offensively, we have no real depth at QB, RB, OL. We have ok depth at TE and WR, but outside of Moss nothing special (yet) among the guys still healthy.

Or, it's the really, really bad coaching on both sides of the ball. We won't know until a new regime takes over, but my gut is there's sufficient talent to win more games than we lose even with four or five starters out, apart from RG3.

I read that article yesterday. Shanahan has drafted great in the first round in 2010, 2011, and 2012, but other picks in the later rounds with the exception of Alfred Morris have been quite poor. Terrance Austin was probably one of his best late round picks but I question the drafting of Aldrick Robinson and the selection of Selvish Capers. Even selected Hankerson in the 3rd round must be questioned. Drafting wide receivers who are fast but can't catch the ball is definitely Shanahan's fault. Or drafting receivers with size and big hands but can't catch is also his fault.
