Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

So... the plan was get younger across the board, build an offense that can run the stretch run effectively, find a franchise QB, increase scoring offense, increase takeways on defense.

Seems pretty clear to me.

Mission accomplished!

Shanahan's stunning Redskins turnaround - NFC East Blog - ESPN

Love this perspective of how talentless this team was when Shanny took over:

"Back on June 13, Shanahan sat in his office in Ashburn, Va., and pointed to a spot on the wall near his office door. It's a spot that is concealed when the door is open, but with the door closed you can see the names of dozens of players no longer on the team. The names are on the same kinds of labels Shanahan uses to arrange the neatly organized depth chart he keeps on the same wall on the other side of a mahogany bookcase and much closer to his desk. But these names of former Redskins are thrown up there haphazardly, as though he just wanted them gone but didn't have the time to dispose of them properly.

"Just look," he said, pointing to the labels. "We've cut 150 players since I got here and only one of them is starting for another team -- Carlos Rogers in San Francisco. We've got a whole new team." "

Gene Smith fired for Gabbert trade w/Shanny. Heckert fired for getting beaten by Shanny on RG3 trade. Interesting.

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

Not gloating but I've said since the offseason began that my evaluation of Shanahan started this year because of the overall job he had to do and the stunted offseasons in 2010 and 2011. So far, he's proven to do exactly what we all wanted once he got his QB and RB in place. The offense is explosive, the defense is productive and the team is the NFC East Champion.

Saw something this morning that of the QB starting yesterday, included in the 5 oldest are Romo and Eli. The future is so freaking bright in DC, we could be in line for a division run similar to what the Colts had during the Manning era.

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

Hmmmmm......I think I would have to seriously consider the performance of the 2.7314159265359 year portion (in his 5 year deal) of his contract in its entirety and not just a.....7 game winning stretch.......

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

I have a feeling they may wait to extend Shahanan. He has another 2 seasons remaining on his contract. But if they void those two years and give him another deal then I wouldn't be surprised either.

LOL. Just pointing out that this is something that's being discussed since before the Redskins clinched on Sunday. I think I told the other mods about it maybe a couple of weeks before I posted it here? Think it was around Thanksgiving that I first started hearing some true rumblings about this

They were thinking about it around Thanksgiving? We weren't even at .500 at that point. I find that sort of strange to begin extension talks given Shanny's career win-loss record with the Skins, and the fact that they had no clue of the impending 6 game win streak. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they are doing it, but given the record at Thanksgiving, I would have said, lets see how next year goes...

I guess we wanted him on the cheap?

Re: Are you buying into the Shanaplan?

Yea I'm with mbedner, it's surprising to know that the FO started considering it at that time. I guess Snyder and FO liked what Shanny have done with the team, he definitely turned it around.
