Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

There are a number of areas that can be questioned - selling the house for RG3 (I'm still in favor of this), passing on the chance to draft J.J. Watt or Robert Quinn in the 2011 draft (booooo!!!), etc. For me, the one decision I questioned from the beginning was ditching the 4-3, a perennial top-10 defense, and wasting resources building a 3-4 that would have been much better served bolstering the O-line and speed at WR. Shanahan knows exactly one thing about defense - he is clueless when it comes to building a good one. He broke the one part of the team that didn't need fixing when he arrived. What decision gives you the most heartburn with this broken team?

Giving up the farm to get RG3. No first round picks for 2 years. Bad move.

Donovan McNabb <-- the only caveat being it netted us Alfred Morris.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Honestly I'd say the 3-4 defense and the whole McNabb fiasco.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Depends on what RG3 becomes. If he is bust it would be trading for him.
If not, McNabb.

Morris is a pretty nice silver lining for suffering the McNabb fiasco.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Shanny f*cked up the rotation by not sitting RG3 after halftime in the Seattle game.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

  1. Hiring Haslett
  2. Trading for McNabb and Jamal Brown
  3. Re-signing a 37 year old MLB to contract when better (and cheaper) options were there
  4. Not pulling Griffin in the Seattle playoff game.
  5. Signing Josh Morgan to that moronic contract
  6. Not releasing Moss in off-season



Here is my list of Shanahan major fuckups, and I've listed them according to how horrible they were.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Not bringing in a more competent defensive coordinator. It's way too early to bitchin' about the RGIII move.

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

Yeah last yr we were all saying it was a great trade for Griff, he's fine it's the other fuck ups that MS has done. Last night he looked like he knew he was done and didn't care

Re: Worst Mistake of the Shanahan Era

I'd agree that the worst mistake Shanny made was scrapping a Top 10 4-3 defense that didn't need to be overhauled.
