Holy ****...

I mean I can see why, but holy ****.

"On January 5, 2010, Shanahan became the offensive coordinator of the Washington Redskins. On the same day, his father Mike Shanahan became the head coach of the Redskins."

Not too surprising. I hope, for the Redskins sake, Shanahan's staff isn't soon filled with buddies and ex-players. That was one of his weak points, IMO, during his tenure here in the post-Elway era.

That seems to be mcd's problems as well. It will only intensify as he purges the roster even more in 2010.

Kyle did a fine job in Houston. Shanny wouldn't let him work for him until he'd proven himself. I think it's cool, and it's not like Mike isn't going to have veto power.

How so? I only know of two guys he gave minor roles. The coordinators and position coaches, to my knowledge, have no previous direct ties to McD. So where is the problem?

I really don't get (and I am not even talking McD) why anyone has an issue with coaches taking along familiar people. It HAS to help to start off with a couple friendly faces and it reduces a lot of time getting people into the system. Just an observation I guess, I could be wrong...people just make too much of little **** like this. Now, if he goes with Slowik, that is just stupid....familiar or not.

Forget just the pitch sweep. I thought one of our best plays seemed to be a check down pass to Moreno. What was he averaging - about 6 yards a catch? The dude has great hands and could have had an even better year had he been like Matt Forte ala 2008.

If our line has a hard time opening up the tough lanes, just get Moreno past the line then let him catch. The dude has awesome hands for a RB.

It will be interesting to see if they can turn that team around. I want to see how the offense turns around and if they are keeping their QB. If they can get an offense next year, they could be pretty good.

To me it's only a problem when you put under qualified and/or incompetent people in important positions. I'm not aware that McD has done that, so I don't have a problem with the familiars he has on the staff.

Please. Shanahan was the king of nepotism while he was here. He frequently gave coaches and their family members cushy jobs even when they weren't qualified. Sometimes it worked out (Bates family) and most of the time (Slowik family) it didn't.

So he's not qualified to run the offense there? Come on dude, who else is going to run it? Dennison? Great guy and all, but more of an OL coach with a title.

Shanahan is big into his nepotism, no question about it.

But hiring Kyle is hardly bringing in someone who isn't qualified for the job. Guy has proven he's a a very good young OC.

Wait and see who the rest of his staff will be, if he brings Slowik as anything other than DB coach then it'll be criminal.

I'm pointing out that it's not exactly nepotism when someone is extremely qualified:

"Coach of the #4 offense in the league. Last year? #3 in the league while their starting QB missed 5 games with injury. Two top 5 offenses in his two years as an OC"

Kaylore hates Shanny, and he's going to make sure you all know about it.

How come nobody is bringing up nepotism with McDaniels? Wasn't it him who got the Broncos job and then hired his brother onto the coaching staff and his previous experience was coaching JV high school football?

NEPOTISM INDEED!!!!
