Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

The injuries did not ruin our season, the injuries coupled with every other factor have ruined our season. As a matter of fact I don't know if our season has even been ruined. I expected a roller coaster season. Also It's much easier for an established team like the Patriots to get over injuries. When you're a young team that is trying to take it's first big step as a team, injuries are a killer.

NE lost Brady for an entire season and still won 11 games (or was it 13, can't remember for sure). That's almost as amazing as what the Pack and Giants accomplished, because losing your franchise QB is huge.

The "injury ruined our season" excuse holds no water, as there are too many cases that prove otherwise.
11-5.
I dont remember any of us growing group of "doubters" ever once even mentioning the words super bowl, yet it is always thrown in our faces. I just want to be relevant when it gets cold outside...............

completely - this is one case where I have been defending Shanny. All he was saying was - "now were going to see who fights and who doesnt" - I never once read anything else into that.

Stop making so much sense.

Just curious what you mean by " every other factor" exactly?

Haha. I remember 5 in a row or we dont go. My first ever skins home game was the dismantling of Dallas and Parcells when Cooley went off!

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I didn't really have a problem with what Shanahan said. I thought it was self-serving, sure (it usually is), but I didn't have a problem with him saying it.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I do believe that Shanahan should be given the full year, but I also believe the handwriting is on the wall. Have to let the year play out, and if the team can manage 7 wins or more, then he should return. Having said that, I don't see this team getting to 7, and Snyder would be able to fire Shanny with minimal backlash.

This team is all about Griffin now, and his growth and satisfaction with the organization is of paramount importance going forward. Snyder is going to sit down with Robert in a fancy restaurant somewhere late in the season, and some frank discussions will take place. Like it or not, that's just how it is, and I am ok with it.

I don't believe that Mike would ever relinquish front office control at this point in his life, and I don't think he can win with total decision making authority. Snyder will then be able to make the move, and justify it.

If you find out where exactly let me, GTripp, Mechanix, Goat, Alvin Walton, Slingin Sammy, and Okie know where so we can get a table near by and talk really loud.

Yeah, that's exactly what this organization needs.. Listen to you crazies again. Reason why this team is in the boat it is now is because you were the poison that would pay so much for tickets to see Albert Haynesworth and Jason Taylor in Redskin Uniforms.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Well said bro. Typical Redskins fan wants us to bring in another coach every 3 years like it's going to fix this culture. The culture is we don't keep HC long enough to truly change this shit show. Just like this country we go into a recession and we think 4 years later after the shit show it would be smelling like roses. Just saying stay the course it will get better if we have faith in SHANNY to fix this.

Well, I don't know if Snyder will have a sit down with Griffin, but if he is even considering a possible HC change, he should at least get some feed back from RG before doing so. In other words, firing Shanahan if Griffin is 100% behind him would be a huge mistake in my opinion.

I think they would sit down and have a general discussion about life in DC, and Robert's overall thoughts about his first year. And then guage his impression of where the team is and where it is heading. Robert is the future here, Shanahan may or may not be.

It is common knowledge that Turner is still coaching because Rivers publicly and privately championed his return. Irsay said that he had sought Peyton's input to maintain continuity in Indy when Dungy retired. Jones did seek Romo's endorsement of Garrett before hiring him as HC, though that turned out to be a mistake. Certainly Kraft isn't discussing Belichick's future with Brady, but it's a good bet they do meet privately and talk about whatever is on Tom's mind.

It's just a smart business practice to keep your main guy happy, and communication is the best way to do it.
