  • Mike Shanahan’s Brilliant Last Act

    This guy rips Shanny a new one:

    If you listened to the post game shows today, you wouldn’t know that Mike Shanahan has led his team to a 3-10 record. You wouldn’t know that his record as Redskins head coach is 24-37. You wouldn’t know that his roster, as constructed, is poor to put nicely and downright terrible and embarrassing to be blunt and honest.

    You won’t know that his coaching staff is a mess. That the only reason defensive coordinator Jim Haslett still has a job was because, to get back into the NFL, he was willing to forgo autonomy to Mike Shanahan (meanwhile, the other candidate, Mike Zimmer, is coordinating one of the NFL’s top defenses). You wouldn’t know that Bob Slowik, a below average coach, was shoved into a role as linebacker coach, a role he’d never held before. You wouldn’t know that that the Redskins have had 3 wide receiver coaches in four years, none of whom had coaching experience, and in the case of Mike McDaniels, had only previously experiences coaching running backs.

    You wouldn’t that Mike’s had complete control of the franchise for four years, with absolutely zero input from principal owner Daniel Snyder. That the team is constructed entirely of players he chose. That, though he was certainly screwed, he played a key role in the Redskins getting a $36 million dollar cap hit, in large part because he wanted to get in a pissing contest with Albert Haynesworth.

    You wouldn’t know about the infamous Shanahan Doghouse, or the mediocre draft choices, or the offensive line that never seemed to get better, or the defense that, like so many Shanahan teams, couldn’t gain any traction, or the special teams unit disasters that span two coaches.

    What you’ll hear a lot of in the next few days isn’t about Mike Shanahan’s failures as a head coach. Instead, you’ll hear about Dan Snyder and Robert Griffin III’s “relationship”.

    By conveniently leaking info over the course of the last few weeks — about RG3′s insecurity, about Dan’s meddling — Mike Shanahan, effectively, found a way to absolve himself of any and all failure of the organization. No, none of this is Mike’s fault. It’s Robert Griffin III, the insecure quarterback who rushed himself back because he was scared of losing a job to Kirk Cousins. It’s Dan Snyder, ever the meddlesome meddler meddling his way into ruining the team’s championship chances.They say the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. I don’t want to call Mike Shanahan the devil, but he certainly did a great job of convincing everyone that he didn’t exist, didn’t he?

              My buddy is from Nashville, he is very plugged into the sports scene there... he believes the Tightends go balls to the wall for Cutler (Vandy Kid, has a house in NVille, is often seen there regulary in the offseason), and Cutler has said Shanny is by far his favorite coach of all time to play for (Does Shanny get canned??). Word in Munch is not considered a long term solution, and Locker is too injury prone (even though he runs for his life) to count on long term.

              Sounds pretty realistic to me....

                If Org's did not study 00-08 part of Shanny's era here before hiring him and not pause then lol at them.

                Shanny will get hired again but, that team better have a very good or great D in place to even consider him. I might even go as far to say a Kubes Shanny combo ONLY or no thanks at this point.

                          This was a brilliant breakdown of yesterday's, well, breakdown.

                          "Worst Pass: Early in the game, before the stadium was enveloped by the stench of disaster, Griffin had Pierre Garcon wide open on the sideline. His throw was as accurate as my phone’s autocorrect feature. Which is to say, broccoli. Wallpaper. Hairnet."

                          ... and I L'd OL.

                            Shanny will always be my Fav HC here 2 SB rings. Even with that since those rings he has been overrated by many and been avg/below avg since.

                              the 1 guy who gladly accepted all the credit for the brilliance of these 5 people... shanahan.
                              And as each one left, the real shanahan was more exposed.
                              mastermind / figurehead.

                              His entire team quit on him yesterday...
                              did someone say leadership?
                              mastermind or master-ego.
