He was not a starter during his tenure there, and if he was, I believe it was because he was a depth guy.

He was in the process of taking Marcus Spears job because he was playing better than he was. The only reason the Cowboys didn't resign him is due to salary cap issues.

You do see the logical flaw in arguing that Shanahan/Allen acted in 2010 the way they did because they had no choice, and then not holding them accountable for the cap penalty, right?

Even if you believe that the NFL jumped its authority with the cap penalty, as I do, you still can't put it on anyone but the current regime. This could/would have been a past issue in 2010 if left to organic means.

Vinny's influence on the 2011 Redskins was less than 1/2 a percent. At this point, he's a completely negligible character in the teams current situation.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Wade Phillips doesn't really run a three four. He runs something much closer to a 4-3 where the linebackers (instead of the DEs) have rush/contain responsibility.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

They aren't a straight 3-4 in Dallas lol. They're hybrid, and the Cowboys even laughed about re-signing him because they said he wasn't worth the money we gave him....looks like they were right.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Bowen is one of our more solid starters, really not sure why he's being called out.

I heard someone on ESPN say that Wade runs a 3-4 which is closer to the 5-2 defense because its a surprise when the ends (OLBs in this case) aren't rushing the QB.

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Had heard this around this same point of the season last year but, the end is near:

@JayGlazer on @FOXSports just reported that Dan Snyder was not happy with Mike Shanahan's comments last Sunday. FWIW. #Redskins

Yeah, but the fact the very next day he blamed the media for twisting what he said was just as pathetic. Got on Mike Wise's case about it. Instead of just saying.........Hey, I ****ed up and I apologize to my team".....he then makes the situation worse.

Being a arrogant egomanic only works when you are winning.
