Don't take it so personal.
You're right -- that was a little too grouchy. I was just surprised at the response it got.

You all would rather talk about Shanahan sucking or he should be fired, but not about the positives or other threads on this board. I feel like I'm dealing with a lot of these people when I come to this board...

I think we all want to discuss the things it would take for us to get better and that means talking about what problems we have that need fixing.

You dont have to worry about fixing the postive things to get better......, That is, of course, unless its your defense. And your defensive personal and scheme happen to be the strength of your team and you want to change it because, um... well, i guess because it was just as pressing as..... or because an overhall was needed since.... Wait why did Mike make the change again?

If Shanahan said this or anything like it publicly Snyder needs to fire him immediately, as a matter of principle.

Is there a link to the story?

Wow if true I agree he needs to be gone.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

You guys really think he said that? It's an opinion from PFW

Quote:
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said after a 21-13 home loss to the previously 1-6 Panthers that he would begin evaluat- ing which players would be part of the picture in 2013. Where Shanahan failed previously was not properly doing so this year.
Shanahan thought he had a playoff-caliber roster, and what holes there were could be caulked by the dynamic talents of pre- cocious rookie QB Robert Griffin III. Shanahan was right about Griffin — the kid is good — but wrong about the other 52 guys.
Why else would he gamble and give up so much (first-round picks gone the next two seasons), even for as rare a talent as RG3? If you had told Shanahan that the picks he would give up would be top-10s, I guarantee he would have hesitated.
As executive VP, this falls on Shanahan. Sure, he unearthed a nice fit for his zone scheme (sixth-round RB Alfred Morris) and the team has lost four starters to injury, but that also reflects on the depth of the bottom half of the roster — there is next to none.
When Shanahan was dusting the NFL in the 1990s with his offense, he could get away with undersized linemen because he had whiz OL coaches like Bobb McKittrick and Alex Gibbs, star receivers such as Jerry Rice, Rod Smith and Shannon Sharpe and Hall of Fame QBs in Steve Young and John Elway.
Griffin is great, but even he can’t compensate for this mess on his own. Years of bad personnel moves, some under Shanahan’s watch, have left the Redskins’ till mostly bare. — Eric Edholm

I dont think the team has regressed.. I think its currently plagued woth injuries and any team would be struggling with the same amount of them.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

I'm not sure Shanny would have used the picks wisely even if he had them back. I was one of those guys who kept wanting to build the o-line and getting a pass rushing DE who could actually pressure the QB and have to be accounted for. At one point I thought we could trade down..get an extra pick and get Aldon Smith. But I in no way regret trading up for RG3. It was always about getting a FQB with a lot of posters. Well I'm glad we waited for this one. Couldn't be happier about that. But we obviously didn't do much for the rest of the team before we got him. Trades for Jason Taylor and McNabb still make me sick every time I think about it. And as much as I respect Joe Gibbs.....giving up a third rounder for a RB we neither needed or even played for us..well....we've made plenty of stupid moves with draft choices.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Wasted picks for McNabb, Jason Taylor. Also lets not forget about the wasted draft picks on Devin Thomas and Malcolm Kelly. Just imagine how solid we'd be if we'd drafted wisely and used those 3 2nd round picks and that 3rd rounder on the team instead of trading them away from nothing.

There's a 1st time for every thing. Don't know how far into the future it will happen, but one day a NFL head coach will win Super Bowls with two different teams.

Heck Holmgren almost did it with Sea. If the refs hadn't blown some calls (which the NFL apoligized for) he could've broken that trend.
