Snyder is not w/out blame here. Obviously he did some things that undermined his head coach.

Closer to $13M for the whole staff, and another $10M or so to hire a new one. That's a lot of cheddar.

I'd milk one more year out of him in 2014. You can still try to sell the 2011 playoff appearance to the fan base. If you wait until after 2014 to change coaches, you're one year closer to getting out of cap hell. If you change coaches now, it's auto failure for the next guy. Stafford isn't an NFL quarterback.

Exact same situation in Dallas with Garrett, except that I feel his decision making is actively part of the problem. Dallas can milk a rebuilding year out of him, but they have to change before they compete.

I don't know if anything I can say to make you understand that Shannhan drafted RG3 to save his hide. Shannahan had complete control of personnel. All decisions were Shannhan's. Owners always have relationships with their super stars. To say Dan should not speak to RG3 is crazy.

Re: It's official: Shanahan fired

I don't know how many MS apologizers still exist out there. This has gone from bad to worse to a total shit show in the last eight weeks.

Good Riddance on the ousting of MS and cronies.

Schwartz ended what 0-4? They should have had control of that division with the Bears and Green Bay floundering. Schwartz convinced me in the last month he is horrible. He challenges Shanny and Garrett and I think may have my top spot as worse coach in the league.

Dan is spending the cheddar. Dan, it is your money, never hire someone that can position themselves to make you have to swallow in order to fire them. Make them accountable.

Redskins football, wash, rinse, repeat. Doesn't matter who they hire, under Snyder they are never going to be what they were 20+ years ago.

Shanahan was a bad hire to begin with, someone who's best days were behind him. Snyder likes the splashy name though. The culture and attitude on this team is so rotten to the core though, it doesn't matter who comes in, they are 4-5 years from contending, if they're serious this time, but I doubt it.

Meh.

He needed to put Stafford on the bench, and he can't be let off the hook for that. But by not doing so, he took a huge bullet for his organization. I hope everyone realizes that.

The Lions are a bad franchise.

Re: It's official: Shanahan fired

No one challenges Shanahan. We'll never see coaching that bad no matter how long the NFL is around. You'll be able to tell future generations tales of such incompetence.

Re: It's official: Shanahan fired

Shanahan failed but I for one thought it would work.
But Shanahan failed.
I am not gonna blame Snyder for putting faith that Mike Shanahan could get it done as a GM/HC. I would have never expected his coaching would be a bigger problem then his GM skills.

Moving forward this team can have success fairly quickly they have many pieces in place and a lot of money/cap space.

We do need a new model in the front office. And it appears Bruce Allen has assumed that role.

Oh, please! The things that were reported as meddling by Snyder were small potatoes.

I think that Shanahan and his media mouthpieces blew up a few minor annoyances to Shanahan into the appearance that he was somehow hindered in doing his job by Snyder's meddling. What a crock that is!

We finished 3-13! We went 0-8 without a single win in the second half of the season! We didn't win a single division game! How bad does a team's performance have to be before the HC takes the blame?

A trained monkey, blindfolded and put in a straight jacket by Dan Snyder, could have coached this team to a win over somebody in the second half of the season.

RT "@kentbabb: The roster is jacked, QB is a diva/head case, owner a meddlesome maniac, and there's no 1st-rd pick. Terrible job"

Can't say I disagree..
