Many americans have forgotten this, but we used to believe in a concept called "personal responsibility." look at royal. Rod smith. The majority of the team. They get it. They are men who play football for a living. Maturity.

Shanahan was coddling some of the personalities on this team. He allowed cliques to develope. People have complained about it for years. Mcd came in and knew that could not continue if he had any hopes of building a long term winning franchise. I'm sure if it was spags, ryan or whoever came in here, they would have realized the same thing. The overwhelming majority of the players had the maturity to adapt to mcd's new protocols. Some didn't. Some don't.

It depends on what mcd is trying to build: A winning franchise, or a nursery.
