You have someone to take his place? Bring in 3-4 more O-line to change the scheme with, and so fourth? Let's here it.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Unfortunately no because Shanahan had to play with fire and get a huge cap hit. That's why next season will be no different than this year. AKA. Can his ass now. Get someone in here to put their scheme together, and go from there.

A big help for the 3-4 would stop bringing in 4-3 players to play a position they have no business in. Oh how much common sense would fix a fair amount of our problems. That's too easy for Shanahan though because he has to let his pride get in the way.

Wait.. So you're saying it's Shanahan's fault we took a big cap hit, and that we should bring someone else in because he should of known better?

What players were brought in that can't handle the 3-4 at the moment? I'm just wondering if you actually believe what you are saying or even know what you are saying or maybe you're just shooting fireballs out of your ass.

You shouldn't listen to all the hear say and believe it. Shanahan needs to improve to stay here, but he's doing no worse if not better then what the Redskins are use to in the past 2 decades. Is that to say it's acceptable? No, it isn't but the players are young and I think it's to early to say.. Well, they are not going to mesh or do well.

This is what a revamped roster in two years of off season building looks like. I just think it's unfair to throw stones at a guy who came in on day one and said it would take 5 years to turn things around. He's in 2.5 at the moment..

Of course this is Washington and the Colts are 6-3, so we should be too. Right?

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

He has full control doesn't he? Then yes, he's the reason. He has the final say and didn't stop anyone. Whether there's collusion involved or something more, the truth of the matter is, something was said and only us and a few others decided to test things.

Bowen and Cofield are two players who have no business being in the 3-4 IMO. I'm not even sure that they belong as backups. Ryan Kerrigan for the most part hasn't been all that impressive, nor has Jenkins who some argued could be a starter.

In the past 20 years, the Washington Redskins have been worse than 6-10 (Shanahan's best record) six times (one of which has happened under Shanahan, 5-11). Shanahan, if he's lucky, will end up 4-12 which will be one win better than the worst of 3-13, but that's not to say Shanahan can't go 3-13 this season.

I'll give him the first two years as they were the major parts of a rebuild, but for a man who claimed QB was really the last major missing piece, that sure has changed drastically. Yes injuries don't help, but you build with quality depth, something the Redskins lack in all compartments.

Hopefully the rookies can come through, but let's be honest, they need time to groom, they can't be thrown into the mix day one and expect to perform.

Not to mention using your teams strengths. Seems like they still fail to realize they need the offense to score in order to win. This is an offense who even without Garcon and Davis can put up at least 30+, yet the play calling keeps holding them back.

Should we be 6-3, I don't know, but we shouldn't be worse than teams like Minnesota, Tampa Bay and Indianapolis who are in their first and second year of rebuilds, meanwhile we should be just about finished with ours.

This is hard to do when you have seven starters out for the year with injuries. This is also hard to do when your secondary can't stop anyone in the NFL from attaining long gains through the air. This is also hard to do when your head coach insists perpetually that this team is better when it isn't. This is also hard to do when the offense keeps producing enough points to win games but yet your defense can't stop the opposing offense and ends up giving games away time and time again after the offense puts you in position for a win. This hard to do when the Redskins fans know in their hearts that the Redskins are just as good as any other NFL team but fails to show it. This is hard to do when you know the Redskins should be in the division lead and they're not.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Pains me to say it, but Tripp probably had a good point earlier in this thread. Either you move on from Shanahan now or you commit to him for more than the two years he's got remaining (and perhaps Kyle as well)

Because what's the point then of Mike publicly stating it's a 3 year process for Griff when he'll only be here 2 more years himself?

Did he say that? That just sounds like a coach trying to buy himself more time to me

I think this argument is the weakest, yet its one people keep repeating. Keeping a bad coach just for continuity's sake will only set the team back farther than it already is, especially with the uber questionable moves Mike has made, ( and could still make) and not worked out.

Everything Mike Shanahan has said here, no matter what it is, seems to be the wrong frikkin thing. The Haynesworth situation (not that the wrong move was made, just that the way it was handled left A TON to be desired), the mcnabb conditioning crap, the way he manages clock during the game (even worse than gibbs, never thought Id ever say that, the way he is handling adversity this year.........this guy is an egomaniac, it seems the players know it, and aren't too impressed with the product and squad that he himself has created.

Its a shame its going to take 2 years away from RG3 with this regime for everyone to understand Mike Shanahan is an old has been coach who hasn't won squat in 14 years after Elway. It sucks to be a Redskin fan right now, and it sucks even more knowing you might have one of the most talented kids ever to play QB wasting time with an old has been coach and his son.

The only real optimism the skins and their fans have is knowing that RG3 is here, and will always be here. I'm just looking forward to the day in which he can start digging the franchise out of this mess. Right now, as it seems, the hole is getting deeper. Watch the eagles come out and spank us like red headed step children. I have a bad feeling we might not even get to 6 wins this year.

For a team to not be able to match the win total they had the year prior with John Beck and Rex Grossman, having one of the top talents at QB on your team, that tells me this team is NOT moving forward, and RG3's and ALmo's efforts are just enough to keep this team from really dropping off the cliff.

Don't blame Shanny for Vinny's mess. He was only cleaning up his garbage. Had he not done what he did, our cap would have been ****ed.


Also, I thought you were done with the Redskins?

Just sold my tickets and parking to #Eagles fans. Hope they piss off the entire section while the Redskins get murdered.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Here's what I'm referring to

Quote:
What we've done over time is develop to where we're only doing things Robert is comfortable with," Shanahan said. "He's a rookie. You have to do that. So we put the offense in over the first two weeks of OTAs, and the first two weeks of camp, and we saw what he was comfortable with. Over a time frame of about three years, we'll put everything in, and he'll really be able to branch out. But initially, we're gonna do what he does well."
