3 seasons total. I think the NFC East is going to eat him alive. They don't play finesse ball out there like they do out here.

Shanahan is not a guy to build a team from the ground up. he needs to have a foundation in place and then incorporate his own players into that team.

this one is so hard to say. the first thing shanahan did was take washingtons good (not just yardage, ppg good) defense and change it to a 4-3, which doesnt make sense. but thats what he studied all offseason so...?

it really depends on if hes learned football is a team sport, trying to plug holes on defense while building an offense doesnt work.

1) Fail. It has been a 4-3.

2) Fail. Moving to a 3-4 wasn't the first thing Shanny did...in fact, it hasn't been determined what scheme they will run.

3) Fail.

Shanny slowly builds a contender but never quite gets there, gone after 3 seasons

Firstly - when did this become a Redskins board?

Secondly - Snyder hires a Super Bowl winning GM and then hires a two-time Super Bowl winning head coach. You question this recipe, but worship at the altar of Bowlen and his Boy Blunder?

I wonder if half this board even watches the NFL...

I say he coaches there for ten years and then hands off to Shanahan Jr. who then hires Sims as his OC and all three get tattoos.......

Snyder hired a 3 time Super Bowl winning coach. How'd that turn out?

Who only took the job, so his sons could get the opportunity to coach in the pros and had been away from NFL for over 10 years, in which he paid no attention to how the game had evolved.

I think that people underestimate how good Shanahan is. He spent the last year refocusing and figure out what he needs to do, to be successful. He add a darn good coaching staff and has owner that willing to spend money. He going to far more successful in DC, then most people on this board want to believe.

After a couple years of building/developement, Shanahan and Cutler will battle it out in the following 10 NFCCG's. They will claim 8 SBs between them in that time.

If he can get his hands on a good qb, he'll get in the playoffs in a year or two. I like Haslett but I can't figure why Shanny is taking a good 43 defense and turning it around. I think he'll be their coach for several years, well at least 5 before he hands it off to his kid.

Campbell buys Shanahan another year. He'll stay with him for one year, see what he can do with him. If it doesn't work, rather when it doesn't work out he'll axe him and Shanahan will get this season as a throw-away season. After that, who knows. If Mike keeps Slowik on the DB's then he'll be fine. If he allows Slowik to undermine his defensive coordinator and then eventually force him out like he did Coyer, then Slowik will drag Shanny down and right out of the hall of fame.

I personally think he's learned his lesson on defense and he finally has a d-line that doesn't suck. His biggest weakness is no longer a problem so he just coach and win and he'll do fine.

He will win a SB in Washington sooner than later.

I'd say more like 5 years before he might be on the hot seat. I do see his team as eventually becoming scrappy and contentious, wouldn't surprise me to see them win their division within the next three years.

I think he'll get 4 years, not five. If he isn't in contention for
the bowl by then (meaning division winner in the playoffs) then Snyder
will lose patience, as he has before.

He'll turn them into a playoff team, but won't make the Superbowl. 6 seasons not 3.

i meant to say 3-4, woops. either way, he changed what was a really good 4-3 to a 3-4, why? and yes he did change to a 3-4.

Probably there 3 years tops . . . no one can stand working for Snyder. Not a genius offensive coordinator, not a disciplinarian, not a college hot-shot coach, not a HOF coach . . . . and not Shanahan.

No he hasn't. They are still consider what scheme to run.

From Washington Post of 25 Jan 2010

"Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett recently said he is considering changing from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense. "

Plus if read on in the piece, you would know that Washington did a lot of hybrid fronts last season.

"During a conference call with reporters Monday to discuss his first Pro Bowl selection, Fletcher said the Redskins have the talent to succeed in any scheme. "I think we do," he said. "There's a lot of teams that play 34 defenses. And really, some of the things we did last year were of a 3-4 defensive concept even though we didn't necessarily call it a 34.

"Our main defense was basically an under front that was similar, really, to what Dallas did ... the way we aligned our front. The only difference was instead having a stand-up outside linebacker, Andre Carter just had his hand on the ground. You can imagine him standing up, we're pretty much Dallas."

Fletcher is on his vacation and has not spoken with Coach Mike Shanahan or Haslett, but said he would be fine with any scheme.

"I can play in whatever defense," he said. "I feel comfortable in a 4-3, obviously. I feel comfortable in a 3-4. Whatever they feel like they want to do."

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/redskinsinsider/jason-reid/fletcher-says-hes-game-if-reds.html

In fact one of the reasons Haynesworth was bitter last season, was the Skins had him playing the role NT in some sets and not letting him just rush the QB.

Why don't you have the balls to post the real poll.

Which coach will last the longest?

Know why?

I'll tell you why.

Your polls are like MSNBC.

You forgot to add that 10 years from now Shanny returns to Denver as the HC, and becomes the 3rd HC in Denver since Bowlen originally fired him.

Meanwhile, 6 years from now McD leads the NE Patriots to the SB as they're HC.

GO FIGURE!
