Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

As bad as Haslett is we don't have any players. The player/personel Mike Shanahan is going to be his downfall more so than Jim Haslett. I don't think he survives this. Losing to Carolina at home with the tough part of the schedule coming up....we're looking at possibly having a 3-5 win season. The Rams could possibly have a top 3 pick next year from the Redskins.

To add to this, and it just hit me while take the trash out. (which is what mike should be doing) How does he expect the players to buy into a defensive scheme that his own coach doesn't even buy into? (or want to run) How can you effectively run something you don't have your heart into? How can you get your players to buy into that when they know your heart isn't into it?

So yeah, this was a HUGE mistake by Mike.

You mean in that year off he couldn't find somebody worth a damn to run this defense? Romeo? Phillips? I know Zimmer was his first choice, but god damn there had to be somebody else.
Yep, when your best starting field position is the 35 yard line going in to the 4th Qaurter.. Well, that's saying something..

I don't even think the Offense has been in many good positions this year. Our defense is the main reason for our downfall at the moment. We don't hold anyone down, we allow teams to chew up clock, and break off big plays when they need them.

Same old song and dance this year.

The below rant is my feelings after todays game.

After todays game and seeing the play calling and the performance of the players I do think it is time for a (Coaching) change. I can handle the Rookie QB making mistakes, not the veterans. The guys are to slow and missing assignments. This is a direct reflection of the coaching staff and the FO. At some point all jobs are held to be accountable. Coach Shannahan is not getting it done, and play calling is absolutely pathetic and getting worse. I understand that the team has had injuries, but so does all the other teams that seem to find away to find away to win. We just get worse, the Redskins are going for a 6 to 7 win season, which agian is where we have been for last 15- 20 years. I know that we are all getting sick of this.

Thoughts?
I think If you want to wager on that 7 wins you should inbox me.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

This "he's not a serious coach" argument is such weak shit. What the **** does that even mean?

Look at TB, Indianapolis, Miami
I think it is fair to say the "doubters" are going to have to get a bigger wagon

Shanahan seems to have a good track record with offensive talent?

This is fun.
The point is that a coaching change isnt always the dagger of death. I said before and ill say it again. Its not the change that hurts its making the wrong decision. Wise you choose and prosper you will ( in a yoda voice).

He's obviously a good coach, he won two SBs. Maybe hes just not right for Washington? Who knows but what is a fact is this team hasn't gotten better in the win column since he's been here

Boy was I drunk on kool-aid after that TB game or Minn? Either way looks like your off the hook for that 10 jersey.

Agreed. Bruce Allen sunk the Bucs and got Gruden fired. He's gonna send another quality coach to the TV booth. How long has WR and the secondary been an issue here? And he still can't improve them?
