Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Speaking of schedule strength/ease I heard somewhere the Broncos had the toughest schedule up to their bye, and then possibly the easiest schedule for the remainder of the season. Pretty easy to see them make a SB run between now and 2014.

Hey.....sounds good!
If you don't mind, I'll PM you for some Secret Behind the scenes Redskin Park straight about the new staff. That way I can start bitching today about the New crew to avoid the holiday rush.......

Too Funny. We do need a change. Shanny ain't getting it done. If we are 6-10 or worse he should be fired. I know it would make it hard on RG3 but I think we would draw more interest because of him. We should also go back to a 4-3 defense.. it is easier to get lb's and cb's than true 3-4 NT. Rak, Kerrigan on the ends. Bowen,Cofield, Jenkens, Nield, Goldson as DT. Db's need a major overhaul. Linebackers need upgrade.

Our division is ehhhh. Giants twice. Bucs and vikes were on downslide when we played em. Got the rams, browns, panthers. Saints were god awful. Falcons giants steelers and kind of the ravens are the only real good teams on the schedule.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Shanny should NOT be fired. Lets throw out the 1st year. In my opinion that was a year to see if we could compete with the roster we had, and obviously that didn't happen. I believe it takes 3 years to turn a roster over from free agents to draft picks in order to show progress. Our roster was over aged, and over paid. Now we have young players at key positions that can help us for years to come. I dont think Haslett should be fired either. They are playing without 4/5 starters, two in the safety spot. THat is huge. I am surprised we didn't/haven't taken a look at Route to be honest.
But Shanny is moving this team in the right direction and needs to be given the time to make it work. Dallas and PHilly are going through major changes. Now is our time to stay the course and compete for the division title. Maybe not this year, but maybe next. Giants are getting older as well. IF we stay the course we can be steps ahead of those teams and have young players to stay on top for many years.

Its fun. And its the right thing to do.

Mattyk, that was from before the season. Thats so selective pulling that out. Just look at what happened during the first 5 weeks of the season.

Noone knew who the good teams were. The wrong teams were winning based on projections, power rankings, SOS, all that BS released before the season. If there was any year that BS strength of schedule that came out prior to the season has absolutely no relevance, its this year. You should know that. Lets pull a strength of schedule that has been taken after the first half of the year based on real play, rather than projections in July when teams rosters aren't even fully set yet. I guarantee you we wouldnt have among the most difficult in the league. Nowhere close. We are absolutely underachieving, injuries penalties options and all. JEEEZZZ.

Ummm excuse me Mike went to the playoffs since then which is almost like winning another SB because he played in the toughest division ever which science proves and all the idiots who talk about his win/loss record over the last three years can't see the big picture which is to say the rest of the teams in our division will get worse someday and then we can compete. I mean, pay the f*ck attention

If you can find an updated SOS feel free to post it. Bottom line is coming into the season our schedule was pretty tough on paper. Feel free to prove otherwise.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I don't think we should have hired him so I suppose I should think we shoukd fire him, but then that would mean I agree with (insert name) and that just sucks

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Shanahan is lucky RGIII is here, even though he (RGIII) feels that they (Shanahan's) don't trust him. Players already said **** Shanahan, but keep playing cause RGIII won't quit. Without RGIII, this would be BAD right now.

Dan won't fire Shanny though.
