The lack of accountability is disappointing and insulting, particularly for yours truly, who has defended Mike through what I thought were dark times. As we look at the tattered remains of another season, I feel lied to. I feel like I was sold a product I didn’t get. I feel I was sold a Bill of Rights about respect and culture and accountability, but that the head coach couldn’t be bothered to follow those ideas.
Mike Shanahan's Brilliant Last Act as Redskins Coach; Making Everyone Forget He Sucked

Pretty much sums up my feelings.

This. I guess it's Cooke's fault.. Amazing how Synder can get a pass for making the Redskins a complete joke for 20+ years..

I don't think Snyder is blameless but he certainly gave Shanahan almost anything he wanted these last 4 years and it still didn't work.

I guess that begs the question: How much influence do other owners have on the team?

Now, not as much probably. But in the days of Gerald Snyder and Fred Drasner it was a bit different

Maybe Mcnabb was right about Griffin and Shanny and the whole scapegoat thing

yeah its becoming easier and easier to not really care much about the skins anymore, honestly I really don't know or care if and when MS will be fired and who he will be replaced with, we suck with anyone it seems. Sad but we are basically the new Bills or Browns of the NFC

Re: Mike Shanahan was Ready to Leave Washington after 2012 Season

Sitting round here talking about Snyder and how much blame to access is a waste of time. He's done the right thing bringing in AJ Smith and Bruce. Getting mad because Dan wants to talk to Kyle or he has a good relationship with RG3 is exactly what the outsiders and the media want you talk about.

Blame clearly falls on the play of the team and the coaches on the sideline, everything else is just bullshit.

The jets who have a way worse offense than the redskins and a QB not even close to griffins level is 6-7 and in the playoff race , rex Ryan should be a COY candidate because he's been great this yr. What's Mike's excuse? Hell for all we know mike may have wanted to get fired the whole season

So your not worried at all that Synder will screw up thin next hire like all the rest? What gives you any confidence that Synder will get this ship pointed in the right direction?

Bruce and AJ Smith. I know from the outside the team and the situation looks bad. If you look at our cap situation, FO, the key talent in specific areas, I really think the future could be turned around rather quickly. Skins in good positions with several personel decision in the offseason too. Division is weak.

Our record is lousy, but we were a playoff team last year. If you compare this situation to when Zorn was on the way out, we are in a lot better shape.

While it's no surprise that Snyder has continued to meddle, in no way does this excuse Shanahan who's been a bloated, arrogant, overrated "coach" for far too long. No matter what has happened with him and Snyder, Shanahan has screwed up enough here to warrant his firing, which I've been hoping for a long time.
