Of course they're not right all the time. They're not wrong all the time either.

Games aren't played on paper as we know. They're played by little men inside our TV sets.
Are you serious? I was poking fun at the opposite i.e. analysts were praised by the homers for saying the Shannahans were mentoring RG3 well, but the analysts near-universal conclusion RG3 should have the better year because of his surroundings is now pretty well kept mum.

Shouldn't take a 3-13 season (3rd year in) to tell the gdamn ownership this is a loser regime. Anything less than 6-10 should be automatic.

Has there ever been a HC win less than 18 games over three years and keep his job in pro football? Seems impossible but who knows.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

“You will have to ask Dan Snyder that,” the coach bristled Monday. He leaned intensely over his lectern at his weekly news conference, his tanned complexion the usual beet-red, as if every corpuscle was racing to the skin’s surface. He scanned the room for perceived enemies.

On television, the 20-minute exchange between Shanahan and reporters who cover the team came across less as a postmortem after Washington’s third straight loss and more of a referendum on the My-Way-Mike era.

“If he feels like this team is going in the right direction, then you ask him not me,” Shanahan said. “I know I am going in the right direction.”


My word Shanny is a douchebag. I think at some point soon Dan's common sense will kick in and he'll kick Mike down the road. I can't imagine a more pathetic response from any coach, let alone in the NFL.

I'd like a new coaching staff because I want a new regime for us to bitch about from day one

I was just talking in general, not that specific case per say.

fair enough?
Even with the cap hit there were teams with less room than us.
RG-3 and Almo are better rite now than alot of veterans at their respective positions.
The Panthers were 1-6. I dont care what they are ranked or for that matter anyone. Our strength of schedule is faaaar from the toughest in the league.
Injuries are league wide. They are every year. Just that we have zero depth to mask them.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

You can have excellent depth everywhere. Certain injuries hurt more than others.

As far as strength of schedule for 2012...

Redskins Strength of Schedule is One of the Toughest Based on Many Different Statistical Looks - Hogs Haven

Word. No I don't really pay attention to analysts one way or another.

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.

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.
