i was always amazed at how often teams would run the same play after showing the beginnings of that play during a false start or encroachment - or, in this case, a timeout.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Can we get Smoot in here to expand on this?



LL ‏@HTTR24_7

Coaches should trust him more and get off their "3 year plan".. The kid is progressing at a rate that out paces that plan. Let the kid throw




LL ‏@HTTR24_7

Before you hate on Griff understand that he is being held back, he's not a fan of the option.




If he doesn't want to run it or isn't a fan of it, why the **** are we?...lol I understand wanting to start him off slow, but it appears the kid can handle it so why not roll with him?

Hmmm...

The "insider world" is a small one. Only so many sources out there

He's got the right idea. There's more....

It's the same thing every 4-5 pages. People say the same thing. One corner you have the Shanahan haters who spew non sense about anything to damage the man reputation

Then you have people like me who are realists and didn't pick Shanahan as their head coach choice, but know it would cripple us for longer if we were to drop him now, then to give him his full contract term.

Besides.. most of your posts Punch are barely 2-3 sentences... I don't want to hear about mine.. So please refrain yourself. Thanks.

Edit : For example.. Your last 8-10 posts alone in this thread don't even equal 100 characters.
Numero Uno, if you are the type of person that dislikes watching the same movie over and over, or reading a book for the second or third time, then maybe this thread just ain't for you. If we rehash the same points over and over, we apologize. And we do not try to harm the man's reputation. Gimme a break. He has done that for himself, with his foot in mouth moments and his 33% win percentage here at Washington. How about the fact that out of his 20 seasons as head coach, he averages just 8 wins a season, and 11 out of 19 seasons his record was .500 or worse (stat would be much worse without Elway, btw) We don't spew nonsense, we spew our opinions, and of course will put whatever spin on the arguement that we feel will get our points across. This wonderful discussion forum promotes discussion, although Its getting quite tiresome having to explain and justify our posts to you, just because you are a realist, and we are imbeciles.

I know its been said many times before, but no-one is making you read OR comment on this thread. I think its great that SmootSmack and Matty have dedicated an entire sparkling brand new thread for us that think the current leadership is not up to snuff to discuss and argue. Those people within OUR little club that we like to refer to as "realists".

The eagles will run and throw all over us the way our defense has been playing. They (Vick and the Eagles) put up almost 500 yards on the Saint's. I just hope that we follow suit and still win considering.

Its not BS. There have been plenty of coaches to lose the locker room during many seasons in this league. In fact, plenty of us used that rationale to reason out why we should've gotten Fatal Bert out of here even sooner than we did.

Preventative Maintenance. I just pray that he hasn't lost em this season, cause with three years of bringing in "your" guys, and now they lay 3 straight stinkers, and are at odds with the DC and HC, well, that just doesn't bode well for his 5 year plan. Years 4 and 5 might just be a salvage operation for the new incoming coach in 2014 if the players aren't buying in as of now. It sure isn't going to make anything easier, thats for sure...........

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

as an aside ... @ punch it in: I find it hilarious that in 3 months, your post count is about 30% of my 8 year post count. You're starting out at EarthQuake like proportions.
