Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

I don't think I've ever wanted a season to be over as much as this season. Like at least when we've been bad in the past, I could still at least enjoy the football aspect. All this crap is taking ANY fun out of this.

I'll give you that and not blame Shanny for putting him there but he could have moved him to DE if we stayed with a 4-3. Biggest mistake was going to 3-4. We needed to improve the defense but it would have been easier by staying with a 4-3

The scheme isn't the problem one bit, it's who he chose to run it. Haslett wanted no part of the 3-4 and would rather run a 4-3. So why would Shanny get a guy who didn't want to run this scheme to be his defensive coordinator? By far, this has been Shanahan's biggest fuck up in DC. Nothing else, and I mean NOTHING else comes close to this mind boggling move. In fact, I should reflect my list more like this..

1) Hiring Haslett
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9) Trading for McNabb and Brown


We would not be in this situation right now had he hired a half way decent DC.

It's called having a real OL instead of undersized midgets that get manhandled.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Mike Shanahan quoted on profootballtalk.com:

“One of the reasons why we had the success that we had, probably the type of success where he separated himself from every rookie in the history of the game, is he was able to do some things that other quarterbacks couldn’t do,” Shanahan said. “We had a dual threat. Now that threat is not quite there, as strong as it was a year ago."

I wonder how that happened, Shanahan. You moron!

I change my vote from Mike Shanahan going away from the 4-3 to the harm he did to RGIII's career (and our chances of winning a playoff game last season as well as our chances of winning this season, and Dan Snyder's investment in RGIII, and NFL football fans everywhere) by playing RGIII when it was obvious that he was seriously injured.

I thought I had forgiven MS for that, but this quote reminded me that I haven't.

I think that Mike Shanahan's continuing failure to protect RGIII which, I believe, has damaged the relationship between HC and QB, will ultimately be the tipping point that incents Dan Snyder to fire MS at the end of this season. If RGIII gets seriously injured again this season behind this crappy OL, you can be certain that MS will be fired.

Blunt but true. I'm amazed by the basic maxims of football that Shanahan ignores. Here's one: "Good big people beat good little people."

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Worst mistakes in Shanahan era:
1) "No, Dan...I'm sure he's ready to be my offensive co-ordinator."
2)"I know Jim is risky, but once we put the 3-4 in place, and give him control, it should work out well."
3)"Call Andy. Tell him I'm absolutely interested. I think Don has a lot left in the tank."
4)"He doesn't look hurt.....keep him in there."
5)"Washington seems like it'll be a great fit for me."

"Yeah Bruce, pay Josh Wilson whatever he wants, he's about to breakout"

"Our defensive scheme really doesnt call for safety play, let's just ignore that position"

"Tanard smelled like weed when he was signing the contract?"
