WTF man???
Yeah that was not good, instead of concentrating on 3rd and 9 i think it was, so they were expecting pass anyway.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

This team lacks talent still and has a ton of injuries at the spots that are letting us down. No starting caliber Safties, no OLB or DE, no 1st WR or TE. The pass to Hankerson for the TD that he dropped would have been Garcon=TD, the pass to Paulson would have been Fredd Davis=completion. They are missing too many parts. If they loose a couple of O-Linemen, we won't win another game. As it is, they might get Garcon back after the bye and their starting Safety. Got to win against the Panthers, then come out of the bye 4-5 with the division ahead of us. With some healthy players they can beat the Boys and the Eagles.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

If we get a win going into the bye week I can see us finishing 7-9 or 8-8. I would consider either of those records a successful season.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I remember when Shanahan was hired he said he had a year to study offense and defenses in the NFL and that he was ready to coach again. The disappointing part is that in that year all he could muster was Jim Haslett for his DC.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

No, firing Mike Shanahan doesn't make sense. Fire Jim Haslett. Our defense has never been in the top 10 ever since we made the switch to the 3-4. "Mirror to the Steelers defense" ...my ass. Anyone else like the idea of going back to the 4-3.

And the hilarious thing is Garcon had his best season as a pro with Dan Orlovsky and that other scrub they had at qb last year, not with Peyton.
Have you not watched us the last three weeks? 38 points against Minnesota, and RG3 played out of his mind. Like arguably the best QB performance of the season. Then 23 points against NY. Then 12 points yesterday.

Do you not understand what trend means? Or is it the downward concept?

^^ Arguably the biggest criticism/indictment of the regime to date. We threw millions at FA, at an enormous opportunity cost, and used a high round pick on another WR, and yet the WR corp is a "major disappointment."

For the life of me I cannot grasp how people point out the repeated failures of this regime, but then say they're getting it right or will get it right, given another few years.

The complete lack of talent minus RG-3 that you see is completely Shannys problem. Cant say the cake is bad but the baker is good.

In what world is 7-9 a successful season. Losing = success? Interesting concept.

MY guess is that he was not suppose to throw to RGIII unless he was wide open.

given the circumstances, i can pick up what he's putting down.

call it making excuses or tapered expectations.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

This is a silly thread. Our offense is finally good and our defense got screwed as a result of the salary cap penalty. We had a bad game on offense yesterday with a bad case of the drops. No Fred Davis, no Garcon, lots of dropped balls. It looked like the players on offense were playing tight against a great defense. Our secondary is garbage without having Orakpo there to lead the pass rush. Even with the current coaches, I think we could improve a lot with some good free agent targets and draft class to fix the back end and build more depth in the front. A middle of the road defense with this offense would have us competing for the division title. Anyone remember the calls to fire Tom Coughlin before his superbowl run? Why fire the guy who has put us right on the cusp of where we want to be? Fire Haslett? Maybe, but only because I believe he has limited upside, not because I think he is incompetent.
