Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

So going back to 2011, who would you have brought in to play QB?

Anyhow, carry on
It's not the trade. It's Mike Shanahan saying "he'd put his reputation" on John Beck being a good QB. He actualy tried to sell that nonsense to the fans. WTF was he looking at that made him think Beck could play? But that's all in the past. Hopefully we're headed in the right direction, but I can't say I'm 100% on board simply because of a 5 game win steak.

See, here is part of the problem. Its the same problem I have with GTripp. You both seem to to think that building a team in the NFL is a one year proposition. Where you say throw away a season, I say didnt get locked into a bad QB and waste 4 or 5 seasons. I have tried to make the case that passing on Gabbert was a good thing, and the responses I get are more about me having an attitude because I believe that the only way to build a team is "my way".

But the whole "All it takes is one year" is a clear sign that no team building is needed by the people who say it. And that is flat out wrong. If that was right, then Vinny Cerrato is the greatest GM to ever grace the planet. He made the most 1 year moves I have ever seen.

Finding the RIGHT QB is the most important piece to any NFL team. He found it... yet all you say (and others like you) is that a season was wasted.

I agree. If we had drafted Gabbert, Ponder, or traded up for Locker our franchise probably would have been handicapped for another 3-4 years, similar to Jason Campbell or Ramsey picks for the skins, because that is what happens when you reach for quarterbacks (the Jets are a perfect example). One offseason/draft will not and would not have fixed the Redskins, we are still a couple of more moves from being true contenders for the superbowl, nice seeing the pieces being built though. It is a lot easier when you have the right quarterback though.

1) it's not prescience to be evaluating 1-2 years ahead of what positions might be better to draft this year, and what might be better next year. The same could be said this year, when the draft is supposed to be deeper then the past few in defensive backs, and that happens to be a position of need.

2) evaluating talent often is a negative result more than it is a positive, meaning: do we want to pay price x(10th overall pick, or 8.5 Million existing contract, or FA asking 30mill over 2 years) for this player's talent level. If the answer is no then you roll with what you have and try to scheme around it.

Putting these two points together, you can see one(or more) rational explanation that doesn't rely on MS psychic abilities.

During evaluation phases, MS,KS, BA and scouts looked at all the pro and college qbs available in the off-season leading up to last season. They looked at a known quantity of Rex (ie with Rex will get us between 6 and 10 wins), along with a potential qb in Beck. Hindsight really does show us that the assessment of most of last years draft class was correct, and that they would not have presented long or short term gains over that, while this year, even had we won the top out number there would have been several candidates with better upside.

I don't think any of this logic is more or less than what a fan would reasonably expect of a solid FO trying to present both the best possible short term, and the highest upside long term.

Exactly, hindsight is a beautiful thing.. I guran-damn-tee it that those same people focused on Rex/Beck would be bitching up a storm if Gabbert/Ponder/Locker was our QB and struggling while our pass rush from the LB position was negligible. Now they would be saying 'We should have drafted JJ Watt or Ryan Kerrigan and waited on a QB! Look at what the rookie QB are doing!'
Plus even if we had drafted Gabbert/Ponder/Locker, we probably would have started Rex/Beck anyways. Even without RG3, there's not a realistic alternative that was available at the QB position in 2010 or 2011 that would have gotten us at the cusp of an NFC East title at this point.

Some folks are just pre-disposed to complain and focus on the negative.

What else was he gonna say?

Hey everyone we all know Rex and Beck blow, but they're all we got this year?

It was just coach speak. Nothing more.

Preach. Fans take stuff too literally. Maybe he should have said, "All our QB's blow, so we are going to go into this season to evaluate whose going to be here going forward and preparing for next season".

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

I want to ask the hatters, what were your expectations this season? And what were your expectations when Shanny and Bruce took over?

I think that would help me understand alot of things.

Dont talk about McNabb, Brown, and the defense...we know the regime's mistakes, No team is perfect. Sure, we know RT and the secondary is an issue and we should have resigned Carlos, we know these things. But what were your expectations?

Im not sure if you are referring to me, but i was def on the hater side during the early part of the season. I was stoked when they took over. I didnt blame shanny for mcnabb. I thought he had something left in the tank. He had a great year prior. When beck n rex took over i wasnt upset about not drafting a qb. We had a ton of holes. Wasnt till this yr when i realized how good rg3 was that i started questioning the losses. My expectations for this yr were if rex can win 6 Griff can win 10. Looks like i was correct. I always gave Shanny credit for denver - elway was a shell of himself n those sp wins were all shanny. I defended his presser after the panthers game too. Thought it was taken out of context. My expectations for thus season n years to come are the sky is the limit.
So again - i questioned 3-6 start. Still do. But its over and we seemed to have turned a corner. Whats done is done. Im on board. Ask okie after the first giants game / loss - i said we r going to make the playoffs. I saw a team effort in that game.

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

You thought we were a 10 win team? wow. I thought at 9 wins we would be exceeding expectations.

Thank you!!! . . . i am sick of people talking about shanny staking his reputation on Rex and Beck . . . he was standing up for what he has . . . as any coach would . . . that's it . . .

And just think where we might have been if we hadn't had injuries and been the most penalized team in the league. Think about that. It blows my mind. We are the most penalized team in the league and are making a push for a 10 win season and a division championship. That needs to be a big off season coaching point, have to clean that sloppiness up!

Because we had a rookie qb rite? I was a huge fan of rg-3's in college, and liked him alot coming out of college. Once we had sealed the deal with him i seriously thought that even as a rookie he was an immense improvement over rexy or beck. So yeah ten wins seemed possible to me. I also thought our schedule was easier than last years. I was so terribly dissapointed with the slow start that i started to really question what Shanny was doing. Maybe i was over confident but based on the marked improvement at the qb spot which seemed to be the one thing holding us back in so many close losses last yr i didnt know how else to explain the losses.
