Hey Rev....Do you think Shanny will finish his career in DC with a better win percentage than McD did in Denver?

If I were Snyder there is no way I would sign him to an extension.

If I owned a team that had an established star at QB and Shanahan's only responsibility was coaching, and my GM and front office had final say on all personnel decisions than yes. I would hire Shanahan. However, if I owned a team with no star QB there is no way in hell I would hire Shanahan as anything more than Assistant Coach/Offensive Coordinator

If the Skins lose out he will have had a .375 winning percentage

McDaniels had a winning percentage of .393

Ouch

Depends on the team. Texans seem like a perfect fit for him.
I don't think it would work. There is a lot of talent on the roster, but they have no QB, and I don't think he could handle working underneath Rick Smith when he used to outrank Smith in Denver.

Doesn't matter, because McDaniels left the Broncos with talent and some real NFL coaches. He also left them all their draft picks and some.

Shanahan will leave Washington a garbage roster and a ****ty coaching staff that will most likely be cleared.

Not to mention losing their 1st round pick which is currently the 2nd pick in the draft.

These same people who LOVE Shanahan, absolutely LOATHE McDaniels won't admit that to you though.

Hated Shannyham after 1998, hated Josh "Stalin" McDaniels from day 1. But I would re-hire Stalin as Director of Scouting in a heartbeat.

McDumb-dumb made some pretty good draft picks. And he never, ever drafted anyone named "Sir Mawn Wilson", either.

Sir Mawn is a super bowl champion though.

True. He did get a ring in 1999 for the Broncos victory against Atlanta in SB33. That year, he started in 0 games and had no receptions (he was a practice squad player only).

http://www.nfl.com/player/sirmawnwilson/2503758/profile

Here's his full resume:

Denver Broncos (1997)*
Arizona Rattlers (1997)
New England Patriots (1999)*
Tampa Bay Storm (20012002)
Buffalo Destroyers (2003)
Carolina Cobras (2004)
New York Dragons (2005)
Austin Wranglers (2006)

* = practice squad only

Thank you, Shannyham, for drafting Sir Mawn Wilson!

Word on the lightrail is that Snyder is the guy who was in love with RGIII and wanted to move up to #2 to select RGIII, mortgaging three 1st round picks in the process.

Shanahan wanted Tannehill at #6.


That's why Shanahan picked Cousins in the 4th round, and that's why he's going with Cousins now, to prove that Cousins is better than RGIII. Is this true or false? I always thought Shanahan wanted RGIII, because RGIII idolized the Broncos SB teams.

If true, it would lend credence to why Shanahan wanted out last year. Hamstrung by lack of top draft picks, while forced to play a guy he never really believed in.

Moving up 4 spots to pick a smallish read-option guy, while blowing multiple high draft picks seems like a very Dan Snyder thing to do.

Shanahan doesn't give a **** anymore, and is rolling with his guy, Cousins. He wants to get fired.
Maybe so. But in that case, doesn't this also mean that his plan last year was to play RGIII against Seattle so that the guy *WOULD* completely blow out his knee?

If so: mission accomplished!

If Shanny doesn't keep RGIII in during that playoff series then this is a moot point. Plenty of coaches get stuck with players they initially weren't fond of. They still mold em and make it work to their advatage.
Shanny's idea of a fix was a washed up McNabb, John Beck and Rex Grossman.

The next coach of the Skins will likely jump at the chance to coach RGIII and do well there.

Well, you can't have it both ways.

Last year Shanahan was a good coach, because he brought a rookie QB to a 10-6 record, 65% comp, 20 TD's and 5 INT's.

But now Shanahan's a bad coach because the guy broke the rubber band in his knee, is still healing, had no offseason, and is having a subpar year?

Because we all know RGIII is the biggest issue with the Redskins, not the 31.3 points per game they've given up

A healthy RGIII just put the redskins on his back. It wasn't shanahan.

Now that RGIII is not healthy, shanahan's **** job of personnel and team construct is exposed. Offensive line and defense have always had terrible personnel, it was simply that a healthy RGIII was such a dominant force last year.

Everyone is falling for this rope a dope. The offense is so far from the biggest problem on Washington it isn't even funny. This was a masterful way to completely distract everyone from the worst defense in the league. Where's the outrage about that? That's where Shanhan has failed again...not with the QB (though Shanny's people skills are lacking).

Eh,in fairness, I think 99.9% want Dan Snyder gone just due to his body of work in DC. But yes, its is pretty split between Shanny and RG3/Snyder.

Anyone who thinks Snyder isn't a meddler is drinking some Potomac River Kool-Aid. I'm not saying Shanny hasn;t done anything wrong but i'm not willing to give him more than 49% of the blame at this time.

Snyder wants to be a celeb. He wants to be Jerry Jones but at least JJ put on helmet at one point in his life. I bet JJ dont get Tom Cruise in his owners box 3-4 games a year like Danny.
