In Shannys defense i am still not convinced he wasnt just saying that he wants to see which of his starters are going to fight through the rest of the season and not that he is going to play a bunch of rookies ala pre-season and throw in the towel.

Maybe he was but he needs to make that clear to the players because even they are saying they had a problem with it

I just don't think the coach should be saying it's impossible, he's the leader.
I've been a big MD supporter. What he said just goes against every life lesson I try and teach my son.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I don't have a problem with what he said necessarily, only 3 teams have rallied from a 3-6 start to make the playoffs, so he's just stating the truth. I just think he should have saved that for when we're officially eliminated.

Not sure if he said it as a self serving measure, like hey can't fault me the rest of the way, we're playing for next year. Or did he said it to try to fire up the team. Either way, he shouldn't have said it.

I can be a bit of a Shanny apologist so I've refrained from weighing in but I didn't really get 'I give up' from his comments. I got more of 'lets see what these guys are made of and who really wants to be here' but I get the other perspective. Probably shouldn't have been said the way he said it or given some additional clarification when it was out there and being dissected.

Its time guys know you dont come here for the paycheck any longer.

If you can't read between the lines, Mike is ready to clean house.
The first thing MS did when he got here supposedly was clean house - get rid of all the problems and bring in young players with good attitudes - supposedly. So now after three years if he has a bunch of slackers doesnt that fall squarely on his shoulders. I mean the team that literally did not show up for two weeks is his team. I will give him a pass because i think his words were misunderstood - i think he was saying we are going to take a look and see who is going to fight through this season. Regardless of the message he was trying to send though - the team he has built has become an epic fail and i will not give him a pass on that. No way. No how.

I think JK summed it up well

Did Mike Shanahan raise the so-called white flag on the season? Sure sounded that way. I get what he was saying: at 3-6, this is no longer about being in the playoff hunt, but about fighting through adversity. Since 1990, only three teams have been 3-6 and made the playoffs – the 1994 Patriots, the ’95 Lions and the ’96 Jaguars. So, yeah, he’s right. At this point it’s not about the playoffs and that’s how many in the locker room took those comments. However, it still was an unusual comment for a coach. Very unusual.

To a degree, you’re always evaluating your talent to see who you like and don’t like for the future. And perhaps the message was simply: ‘We’re about to find out what we have.’ But having covered many seasons where the Redskins weren’t good at this point, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a coach talk about evaluating players and finding out “who is going to be on your team for years to come,” at this point in the season. That sounds like late December talk once you’re officially out of the playoff hunt. Shanahan was right that the Carolina game was a must-win. He’s also right that their season took a different turn Sunday. But my guess is that a number of coaches around the league were surprised by what he said. I know I heard from one on Sunday who definitely was – as was Tony Dungy, who said as much on NBC. I don’t know that I question the leadership among the players; your most important player on offense works as hard as anyone. Your best leader on defense works as hard as anyone. It should flow from there, right? If not, why is that? You have to question many things at this point: are guys not being used properly? Developed properly? The questions now become bigger than about a particular game.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Fred Smoot on 106.7 the Fan talking about they should get rid of Shanny and bring in a coach like Andy Reid.


Andy Reid?....../facepalm


Fred Smoot is such a assclown.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I don't believe he should be fired, but he need to take a stronger hold on the play calling. We got a top tier qb, and he needs to create more down the field throws. He also needs to play younger players, especially wr's who can catch!

Horrible at clock management, play calling is horrible in red zone, and simply can't get results out of the talent he has.


Pass.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I agree. I don't want Andy Reid. We need a young coach in here with some attitude that knows how to make game day adjustments.

Lets not use the word "clean house" then but rather, refine.

Here’s Mike Shanahan, the team’s coach, in the post-game press conference: “When you lose a game like that, now you’re playing to see who, obviously, is going to be on your football team for years to come.” While he did say he “takes full responsibility” for the team’s third loss in a row, he also said he was “disappointed” and that “now we find out what kind of character we’ve got.”
Well i again have no problem with what he said - i understand the context of it - i have a problem with the fact that their is a reason the team is giving up. Not playing hard. Not good enough. Were missing a couple key guys on d. Were missing a couple key guys on O. Ive seen the offense play lights out though without Garcon. Not sure Fred Davis can help what i saw yesterday. Injuries we have now certainly are not most of the team. The Giants just won a superbowl with mega injuries and do you remember the injuries to the Pack when they won it all - my God. They overcame and won championships. We cant even beat the friggin Panthers.

Please break down how many were injured and for how long. I'm not buying this.
