Default Does Shanahan make it through the season?

Mike Shanahan said after the game today that the season now becomes an evaluation for next year.

He's now 14-27 (.341) in Washington. Is Snyder going to cut him loose?

No chance. He has at least 1 more season with his QB and Snyder would be a first class idiot not to give him at least 2 more.

That loss today against a team they should beat at home is typical of a Mike Shanahan team.

How often did we lose a game we should have won under Mike, especially the last 3 years?

Every endangered head coaching job in the league has Chip Kelly's name penciled in.

I'm not sure how shanny is overwlemed. his kid is running the offense, bruce allen is running the front office, and his best friend along with two former head coaches are running the defense.

injuries have ruined this season.

Nope, he will survive this season no matter how bad it gets with his status quo work (Solid running game, no defense, no adjustments).

BUT he will not survive next year. He will essentially be working for that 5th year next year.

I was extremely pissed when MS was hired in DC. Redskins fans who don't follow Denver now understand...

Totally agree with this . Next year is his waterloo. After that he will get O coordinator jobs at best, or no GM duties if he gets another HC gig.

He makes it through this season.

Maybe if they start 0-4 or 2-6 next year Snyder gets antsy and fires him but I can't imagine him not starting next year as the redskins HC.

It is hard to win games with a Rookie QB no matter how good they are.

Watch Snyder fire Shanny and hire McD who will piss off RGIII and be forced to trade him.

Shanahan is proving what type of coach he is without the HOFers

Is Indy giving up on the season? Seems like they are the #6 seed right now

Shanny is a fraud and will prove to be again next year

Shanahan proved that before he left Denver. If he would just see that he is not a GM......GM's know there is a defense also. It was his downfall in Denver and will be in DC.

IMO, him and holmgren have ruined their legacies due to their stubborness of getting involved in the GM portion of the game.

Good comparison. Holmgren was akin to Millen in Cleveland. I would really like to see someone stand up to Shanahan and take those GM duties from him and see what happens. I think if he stuck to coaching he could possibly have more success. I don't know. He could possibly walk too if that were to happen. Hopefully he doesn't trip over his ego. Ah hell he's already done that.

"Shanahan knows the deal. His teams pack it in every single year unless they are a completely dominant team.

Since the 2005 season his teams have all won 1-2 of the final 6 games of the season. Since he's come to DC the team packs it in even earlier. "

jeebus, scary trend.

Yep, it's going to get ugly for shanahan this week (considering it is the bye week) and next.

The thing that's going to kill him the most IMO is that defense. The skins have never EVER in their history been this BAD on defense. This is the NFC East, a division with its foundation being tough, physical defense. He can hide behind Haslett for now, but eventually they will come after Shanahan.

If I was to bet, I would say he doesn't get rid of Haslett during the bye week because then the heat comes solely on him. He will ride the injury excuse until the offseason to buy more time and then "fire" haslett.

You are right on how overrated he is and he always has bad defenses. Even our SB team D was pretty bad overall but were good at getting big plays and turnovers. He will fire Haslett and use DC as escape goat like he always does.

In 1997 our defense was ranked 5th, scoring defense was tied for 6th. In 1998 it was ranked 11th, scoring defense was 8th.

Shanahan was here too long, but early on he had pretty decent defenses to pair up with our offense.
