I'm not taking any side. Just saying if we learned anything from last year (and 2005 and 2007) it's you can't rule anything out and the season is never truly over until it's over.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

Despite what some are clamoring for, I doubt Snyder fires Shanny unless the bottom completely falls out (4-12 type) and/or there is major dissension between him and RG3. He promised 5 yrs and if fires a well regarded NFL coaching lifer then he's basically affirming everything bad people inside the game and out have said about him and the organization since he bought the team.

That being said, IF he does that then look for someone who runs an up-tempo/no huddle/spread scheme that Griffin reportedly prefers or someone with a strong defensive background (Zimmer or Ray Horton comes to mind) or a shot at a Belichick/Carroll round 2 type who flamed out once but was well regarded (Spagnuolo, Childress, Wisenhunt) who are chomping at a second chance to prove themselves.

I can't see Snyder going the college route again after Spurrier and not the retread route either after Schottenheimer, Gibbs and Shanahan.

Honestly, I'm not excited about any of them.. With no first round pick and a number of starters with expiring contracts, I'm Rod Gardner (50-50) on if this offseason is the time to be making such a big change.

Teams hadn't played against an offense like ours last year, now they've studied and started to figure out our offense. They've punched us, and we haven't counter punched them back. Its basically a lot of little things adding up to one major problem with us and some of those things, such as demeanor and will, aren't in-season fixes.

My point is talent wise it's the same team that won 10 games a year ago. That's why the lack of talent excuse is a weak one IMO.

Right, and in my previous post, I was saying that age, desire, motivation are all major factors in a players talent.

In some ways, we're more talented this year, but last year's team was excellent at putting defenses in no-win situations and then physically punishing them for their indecision.

I don't think they have the talent available to do that this season. RG3 is more limited, Chester is more limited, Paulsen is more limited, Davis hasn't made any impact, and the strength in numbers approach by the offense just isn't that much of an advantage against bigger, faster, stronger defenses.

Ultimately, despite the best efforts of Kyle Shanahan et al, the Redskins need to win more one on one battles on offense (to win games) than they are capable of right now. And do that that, they need a talent infusion. But in the mean time, a better offensive approach could help put lipstick on the pig.

The last three games, the Redskins have been pretty much what they are: above average offensively, average defensively, horrific on special teams. I think the team is just out of upside at this point. There aren't many more wells to tap into to improve the performance of the roster (although game management could be easily and instantly improved). Fresh blood is needed.

If he sits idle while Shanahan wastes another season of his investment in RG3, that's pretty much the mark of an owner who doesn't have the balls to stand up for himself.

You may be right but it's a no win situation really.. Fire a 'legendary coach' or sit on your hands and hope for the best, either way Snyder looks bad. Really Snyder's only out is to not offer him an extension making him a lame duck and hope that Shanahan quits/retires. I think Shanny's ego is way too big for that though.

Well, it's a no win situation if the goal is to not be criticized by anyone, but if the goal is to get it right and do the best thing to help the Redskins win, it's an easy and obvious decision.

Shanahan is a legendary coach for his accomplishments with the Denver Broncos, but he's been very forgettable here. The Broncos were making an aggressive move to fire the most successful coach in their franchise history. Shanahan hasn't even been the most successful Redskins coach of the Snyder era.

Yea, Cleveland, Detroit and Oakland are completely turned around and winning like crazy.

So how about those games were Robert had a hurt knee and was less than superhuman? (pretty much every game past Baltimore)

You think it was Rob's play in the last game of the season that won the NFC East crown for us? Not even close.

I concur. Doesn't sound like he's interested on any level.

Funny you say that, because in this weeks MMQB Cowher basically says "never say never".

This is one of the dumbest things I've seen posted on this forum, and that includes the drunk thread.

Tell me how Oakland has been turned around? Jacksonville? Didn't Mike Holmgren get run out of town in Cleveland b/c he didn't do sh*t? Arizona after Kurt Warner left?

Were any of those teams blindsided by a $36 million dollar cap penalty or had their QB taken out with a season ending injury during their playoff run?

None of us have anything to cheer about lately and everyone is entitled to complain about it. But this bitter biased bullsh*t you spew every day is ridiculous.

Re: Who's your pick's for next HC, DC and OC?

I doubt that firing a supposedly legendary coach after four years, or 80% the way through, a five-year contract would have any impact whatsoever on the interest of desirable Head Coach candidates. That would hardly qualify as a rash act on the part of Dan Snyder, IMO.
