So as one of the 'Fire Shanahan' proponents, what is your (or anyone else who wants to fire Shanny) SPECIFIC plan to get this team back on the right path?

Who would you have picking personnel?
Who would you hire as head coach?
What offensive system would you want in place and who (OC) will run it?
What defensive system would you want in place and who (DC) will run it?
Who are your building block players for the systems you recommend?

Bowman, Snyder and gholdson were not high draft picks. The 49ers are only one example, what the Giants did the first three years under coughlin also showed they were building a team. What we have done under Mikes tenure is lose one more game every season. To say that some one inherits a talented team is basically saying the coach gets the most of his players unlike the coach before him. That is what Harbuagh does, that is what Coughlin does, that is what Sean payton does, Belichick, Smith, all the good coaches in the NFL. Coaches get the best out of their players... Shanahan does not do that. Orakpo, Kerrigan, Carriker, Fred Davis, Trent Williams, Landry, Rogers, Fletcher (excluding this year) Redskins are talented, but its obvious they are not coached to be the best they can be.
If you were paying attention you could. The Niners were a 'sleeping giant' for years out west. Remember, most pundits picked them to win the West the year Singletary crapped the bed with them. They had talent but needed it to come together. Can you say we've had comparable talent? Really? No other team has completely remade their roster and had fast success.

So based on you rattling off Harbaugh, Coughlin, Belichick, Smith all of the 'good coaches' are you implying that any of them would be winning with our current roster (and injuries) AND that talent is secondary to coaching ability?

Yes, Shanahan made a bad trade for McNabb. Any other 2010 thread topics you'd like to revisit? Are you suggesting fire him now for a 2010 move?

Although I doubt if Shanahan gets fired, I'll answer these questions.

#1. I would prefer having GM Bruce Allen picking the players.

#2. If Mike Shanahan is fired, I would pick a coach like Mike Singletary. Singletary wasn't good in SF, but neither was Bellichick in Cleveland.

#3. I would employ a west coast offense. If Singletary opts not to keep Kyle Shanahan around, I would definitely see Brian Schottenhiemer or maybe somebody who is well versed in the west coast system.

#4. I like that DC from Notre Dame. He runs a crushing 34 defense.

#5. Hard to answer this question. But I would get draft picks and key free agents to bolster this defensive system. I like who we already have, but the entire secondary would be revamped.

This should be a fresh thread.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

LOL! Mike Singletary? You gotta be kidding me! Brian Schottenhiemer has already been in Washington. While I could be wrong, I doubt he'd want to ever come back.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Though I wouldn't do it, I don't know if it shouldn't happen either. It appears he's lost the team to an extent and I'm getting sick of his excuses. Just waiting for the new scapegoat to hide behind. DeAngelo Hall?

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

um, belichick started in cleveland, not the with patriots, so he didn't come close to winning a SB in his 2nd year.

No..it's too many other things, not just the McNabb deal. I'd like to see him go but for the sake of RG3 hopefully gets one more year.

You are more of a cap whiz than I am, but was that not the going rate for that type of band aid at the time? I am not talking about Garcon, but Josh Morgan. Who else was available and what was their going rate?
