Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Devaluing Haynewsworth and Davis to the point we wasted chances to get something good for them

Yep what a waist of 4 years this was and has been, yeah we got RG3 and ALF but we r still a shitty team and a shaky future so really nothing has changed much

In general, Shanny has not done a good job of protecting the value of the team's player assets. What happened with RGIII in the Seattle playoff is another example of that, IMO.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Landry and Rogers could be added to the list.

Seems minor compared to the major problems I see on the field. An extra 5th or maybe 2nd round pick? Dont think that woulda fixed much, but a issue that coulda been dealt with much better.

Possibly as to Davis. AH was a waste of player - that we got anything at all for that trainwreck is amazing to me.

yep, overall He's done a bad job as a HC, he should be fired and if not it's a damn shame that he isn't. I'm so over this staff

To be honest, how much value did any of these guys have to begin with? Fred was a free agent this off-season and garnered really little to no interest. Should he have just played Fred even though Reed outplayed him, just so he could get his value up?

In regards to Haynesworthless, how much value could we really garner from him? Exactly what was he supposed to do with him? We heard what Cooley had to say about this clown. We saw him giving up on plays and laying down during the Philly MNF massacre.

Not to mention the $36 million cap penalty that is associated with Haynesworth. Double f-up. The Davis thing will be Antonio Pierce & Carlos Rogers all over again. He's going to go somewhere next year where someone will overlook his lack of being perfect and find a way for him to make plays and he's gonna be a beast.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

The McNabb move was pretty inexcusable. Going into the second season with Grossman on top of the depth chart and Ryan Torain at RB was pretty much the death knell on the Shanahan era.

Mike was a dead man walking prior to the cap penalty. The RG3 trade was a blatant attempt to liquidate future assets to put a winning product on the field immediately, because after two full seasons there was zero foundation.

  7. Trading so much for RGIII when our team lacked so much talent.



Here is my list of Shanahan major fuckups, and I've listed them according to how horrible they were.
I agree with all of this and will pass judgement on #7 in a couple of years.

Last year he was worth every penny, and I believe we will see it again next year. I am really disappointed in the staff's inability to train him properly even as the season has gone on. I get he rehabbed last offseason but why is he still making some of the same dumb mistakes.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Switching to the 3-4 defense.

Almost all of our current problems can be traced directly to that bone-headed decision.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

I think the execution of the 3-4 switch was worse than the decision. Almost every team that moves from an even front to an odd front saw a first year bump. Our defense crashed. Lotta personnel errors in there. And Haslett's installation was sloppy.

Gimme a break! Everyone and I mean everyone was onboard with the move to get RG3. The same people now saying it was too much to give away would have been screaming bloody murder that this organization wont do what's needed to win if they hadnt pulled the trigger to get RG3.
