That whole organization is a microcosmic reflection of their **** head owner, Dan Snyder.

Obviously Snyder isn't innocent but Shanahan has literally done nothing over his 4 years as coach and he had COMPLETE control over the team. Dan Snyder was just a signature most of the time. That's DC sports for you.

Complete control? Don't think so..and 4 years is hard to make something happen when you don't even have a solid piece at QB to begin with or throughout the time.

"Dan Snyder has given Mike Shanahan everything he wanted. Mike Shanahan told Dan Snyder not to hire him if he didnít give him five years to turn things around. Dan Snyder gave him a 5 year contract. Mike Shanahan asked for total control, including the role of general manager. Dan gave it to him (despite the fact that the actual general manager Bruce Allen wasnít totally sold on Shanahan). Dan gave him full control of the cap, full control of player acquisition. He built him a training bubble, remodeled Redskins Park, renovated the stadium, okayed the trade of three first round picks to secure a franchise quarterback."

Okay I'll agree with you on the time table. However, Snyder did give Shanny control over things that coaches shouldnt have control off. Be a part of? Sure but not the guy making decisions like that. But even with "complete" control he couldn't put together an offensive line to protect RG3 from being sacked or taking hits all the time. He's benching RG3 because he doesn't want him to take anymore hits, whose fault is it that he's taking these hits? The ****ty O line and whose fault is it for the O line? Snyder and Shanahan.


I feel terrible for his son, Kyle. Hopefully he doesn't get shunned out of the NFL after this circus act.

This Green Bay win completely makes up for the Denver loss.

Am I wrong for basking in the sucketh that is Tony Romo (AKA Danny White 2.0) as much as I do?

Miss Amy's sensibilities and the language filter prevent me from telling you what I really think about you.
