Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Honestly I felt strongly in 2008 that Jim Fassel was exactly what this team needed. Or Mike Sherman. I think someone who's already been a coach but is looking for a second chance to get his first ring would be ideal.

Oh well, we all know who our next coach is anyway

Really? Would you mind pointing out anyone who has stated or indicated anywhere in this thread, they Love Shanahan?
The majority in the poll are just bright enough to understand that the constant...torching and "rebuilding" of the Team/Coaching staff is a recipe for more of the same.....

You're doing exactly what you accuse everyone else of, taking things to the extreme.

Oh come on, all the great things he has done? The amount of times i have heard how much better off we are than three years ago? The constant referincing to the 20th century Super Bowls? Coaches change all the time in every major sport. They succeed or they fail. It isnt the "changing" that leads to the same old shit its the "wrong decisions" that lead to the same old shit. Bound to land a solid coach eventually. Hoped Shanny would work out. He isnt. He wont. If we win 6 or less i say thats that.

If you truly do not think the team in place today is not superior to the team MS inherited, you certainly are not up for....any realistic discussion.

Yes but they did have their first four non- losing seasons in those years. He took over a joke and made them respectable almost immediately. Shanny took over a joke and made them - well as of today - a joke - a younger joke with slightly less wins.

And if you watched the game today you would know better than to use "this team" and "superior" in the same sentence.

This thread is pointless because Shanahan isn't going anywhere until his contract is out, unless it is of his choosing. Drafting RGIII locked in 2013, nobody is getting fired offensively and risking screwing up the best thing this franchise has had since Sammy Baugh. There will be significant changes on the staff but those wanting a new head coach will be sorely disappointed.
It's going to be a new system next year even if Shanahan survives.

The thing to avoid is having Kyle leave to take another position next year, changing systems, and then having to conclude what we already know about Mike in 2013, forcing another system change in 2014.

Just accept the inevitable, and get the long term solution in here. One change, get it right.

Unless someone can come in here and turn things around on a dime and do no wrong, we're always going to hear the same crap.
I have eternal hope that the next hire is the right guy for the fanbase and franchise.

The Redskins are not an easy job for a coach. It takes a special person to win here.
