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...

It's because skins fans are just tired of the SOS, losing. So no one really wants to look ahead right now, it's all about the present and why This team hasn't improved over 3 years.

You would think when fans start saying "Fire Shanahan" or "We're done" or "Start looking towards next year" that they would do what I do and literally look ahead to the future by looking at free agency or draft, but apparently not....yet...

Exclamation Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

In the current digital issue of Pro Football Weekly, they ran a short feature article on Shanahan and the Redskins' problems. The article states that had Shanahan known how bad his other 52 players were, he would not have made the deal for RGIII. PFW intimates that Shanahan did not expect that the Redskins draft picks (relinquished for Griffin) would be such quality picks. Had he known, the story contends, Shanahan would have never made the deal with St. Louis. Shanahan made the trade with St. Louis believing that his Redskins would be a contender right now!

I draw several conclusions from this story. The first is that RGIII notwitstanding, Shanahan is NOT a shrewd evaluator of football talent. Secondly, the Redskins could probably be 3-6 with a combination of Cousins & Grossman at QB; Shanahan has NOT wisely selected the players (and coaches) that are attempting to complement RGIII's skills, thus the on-field results are less than stellar even with Griffin running the offense. Third, I would say that even if there is but a shred of truth to the story, Shanahan has vastly underrated the Redskins' lack of talent and thus erred strategically in trading away such valuable draft picks. Finally, I would just say that if things are as bad as they seem right now, RGIII will be past his prime by the time the Shanaclan get things figured out -- if they ever do!

This seems like a simple case of the game passing-by a once outstanding football coach.

Not that I am defending the people that are posting here (or what is being posted here), but free agency/draft discussions are pointless and too early at this point.

What on earth are you talking about? I had a random observation that the Colts seem to have turned things around pretty quickly and it is really impressive given that they have a rookie QB and a really unfortunate situation with their head coach.

I like the Redskins (obviously) and it is tough to watch something you love, yes I said love, struggle for so long. What the hell do you want me to say? "Well I sure am glad we aren't as bad as the Chiefs" ?

Edit: *yes

So you had a random thought from around the NFL...and decided to ignore that we have a weekly around the NFL thread and post it there?

I wasn't talking to you directly, it was just a general thought more than anything.

Don't take it so personal.

hmmmmm, I wonder if they fit into the category of announcers/analysts that don't know what they are talking about, or ones that do. I guess it depends on the situation. A layperson could see the coaching on our team this year is holding the franchise back, not just RG3.

One playoff win in 14 years. Doesn't take a generic website sports magazine to figure this one out. Its just the vast majority of fans on this site are still in the denial phase.

Here is a link to fellow redskins fans, in the spirit of recovery.

I hope you find it in your heart to forgive me -- should I start a forgive me thread and post there?

You're right -- that was a little too grouchy. I was just surprised at the response it got.

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?

Re: Should Mike Shanahan be fired?

Ill say this. When we hired MS I knew that with the fact that no Super Bowl coaches have won Super Bowls with other teams, that that was unlikely to happen here. I figured that MS was more so a hiring to get our team in the right direction, and hand it over to someone else when he would retire (like his son Kyle for example). The problem is this team hasn't progressed, in most ways it's regressed.
