I think we will pick up a great WR or two next year, but if Shanahan is still our HC, I'm not too sure he will do anything about the line. That's what I can't get my head around about MS...he doesn't see the line as being a major issue.
Won't happen... you much first start by building "The Hogs"... Shanahan is wed to his zone blocking scheme, with light, athletic linemen... The Hogs will never be reproduced under his watch...
Unfortunately, it is exactly that kind of OL that would give Bob the confidence to work on his pocket skills: work on reading his progressions... read defenses... set blocking assignments... focus on unfamiliar mechanics... and, most importantly, to slow the game down.


I like your logic. I mean its rare to see a QB do consistently well who's constantly under pressure.

Just a pipe dream, but I'd love to see Russ Grimm as our line coach. Agreeing with what you said above, I think he & MS are completely incompatible though.

Your post brings back some good memories.

to have a chance to win the game at the end after all those turnovers was a good thing ….
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - unfortunately with Dan Snyder, it is what it is
