Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Btw. This has been the easiest first half schedule the skins have seen in many years. Whata waste.

I see that after the last few weeks. After beating NO, figured wins vs Rams, Cinci, Vikes, Bucs, Car and maybe Gmen. Had leads late vs NY and Atl. All for not. Rams will get a nice pick.

If we are going to lose, I say we hire Jim Mora. At least the post game pressers would be entertaining.

Great. That stays in my head for a solid hour if I even think about it.

The rams game killed us, we would have started 2-0 and it seems like a small deal but that helps the confidence of a rookie even more

You look at the NY Giants in the 2005 Draft the only had four draft picks

2nd Round (43 selection) Correy Webster DB
3rd Round (74 selection) Justin Tuck DE
4th Round (110 selection) Brandon Jacobs RB
6th Round (186 selection) Eric Moore DE

Three of those four were solid hits, Tuck obviously being a big time stud.

The Skins just don't seem to hit on their drafts like that, period, which is why the team is where it is record wise.
That's one of the reasons I'm saying it doesn't matter if we fire Shanahan. We're going to suck next with or without Shanahan, and probably suck the year after that and the year after that...

Yeah, I know I'm being reactionary, but here's a thinking exercise: imagine you're a Broncos fan and the Raiders had drafted RGIII. Would you be worried that the Raiders would be a better team for the next decade? No, you wouldn't be. Why? Because they're the Raiders; they'll always suck. If we fire Shanahan after this season (a move to which I'm not necessarily opposed) then we'll just be having this discussion again in three years.

Shanny was getting free money from the Broncos when he decided to take the Skins job. He's loaded, with a mansion back in Denver. He's not here just for the money.

Umm we will be having this discussion again if we hire the wrong guy - not if we hire the rite one.

I agree with Mike and I don't think he's putting players down. I think he's just saying he simply does not yet have what it takes to win and does not need to get to 4-10 to say so.

After evaluating the needs of the team, he can fill in the gaps starting with priority #2 since RG3 (priority #1) looks like he is working. With so many glaring needs, It's going to be tough to say what priority #2 really is. There are so many it seems... Being the HC of the Skins is not easy. There is no one guy that can walk in here and have immediate success.
Well it sends wrong message to team,like he's given up
Mike n mike and Ron jaworski were discussing it this morning
They're shocked he would say what he said

So on my Iphone - no internet here yet - i have tapatalk. It has different tabs for the different threads and sometimes due to the small screen it gets confusing. I punch the un-read tab and see a thread entitled "the walking dead- season three". I go oh man someone started another thread about Shanny. So i start reading it and Im going "what the hell is everyone talking about"- i was literally so confused.
I watch crap loads of TV but The Walking Dead isnt one of my shows. Thought that was pretty funny. Didnt want to get into it on that thread but had to share.
Also I guess its a pretty good show if it warrants a thread but I guess im probably too far behind at this point.
