I'm a bit disappointed in myself for not noticing this yesterday, but Lavar Arrington pointed out on NFL AM this morning that Shanny was the only person who stepped up to the microphone yesterday with the television screens behind the podium turned off. No Redskins logos shining behind Shanahan as he gave those non-answers. He's toast.

Less then a week ago I posted a thread called conspiracy theory.. hoping mike understood this wasn't our year but would have some pieces in place to go deep next year. After watching HIM, not the crap on the field but the man, I see a man who has quit long ago. He has give. Up, and the players showed what a coachless team looks like. There is no more fight in that dog so you take him out, plain as day. His awkward presser was the final nail in the coffin... Anyone would be a fool to let a man like that carry on destroying your franchise.
+1 - This team was on fire the 2nd half of last year, AND they have upgrades to certain positions this year; there's a change in the climate here … more and more this year MS seemed to be withdrawn.
Just go on the Skins' website and watch the press conference - He's burnt out here, and the straw that broke the camel's back was the Seahawks' game controversy.

THIS IS NOT GOOD - I'm in favor of getting rid of Mike IF he's 'LOST' the team - HOWEVER - I ESPECIALLY DO NOT WANT SNYDER INVOLVED - AT ALL

IF WE DO HAVE TO CHANGE HCs - we need Bruce to bring in a guy like Russ Grimm or find a STRONG NFL HC

Dan Snyder needs to leave ALL decisions up to Bruce and guys that KNOW SOMETHING/ANYTHING ABOUT THE NFL
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

The problem with a new coaching staff, as Gruden pointed out on MNF a couple of weeks ago, is what if they come in with a completely new scheme that Griffin can't excel in? Then we spent a King's ransom for nothing. Shanahan needs to finish this season out, and wait to see what happens in the offseason before they make a decision on bringing him back for year 5.

^^ :shock: We WILL see a new HC here soon if Mike wants to leave or if he's really 'lost the team'

The ONLY concern is Dan Snyder - he needs to stay away and not have anything to do with things here

Firing Shanny, or even the entire coaching staff (even if it happened right now) could hardly be viewed as a "knee jerk" reaction given the team's performance over the course of the entire season...I wouldn't have had a problem with them being let go at mid season, that's how bad this team has been this year....

say what? - :shock: The only person that would do something like that is Dan Snyder

Nobody with any football sense would bring in a HC or OC that do not know how to take advantage of all that Robert can do as the leader and QB of this franchise

Maybe Gruden was talking about himself?

I'm VERY sure that Gruden would find a way to help his OC take full advantage of all that a QB like Robert can do :D

I really doubt that Gruden would come here and I cannot fault him for that :D

Dan Snyder and "football sense" should never be uttered in the same sentence. And Gruden brought up a great point, if they bring in a guy who doesn't do the read option college style offense and Griffin has trouble adapting to it, the guy could switch to Cousins. It's a legitimate point.

it's really not a legitimate point - we are NOT running the read option this season - Kyle has been trying to get Robert to 'adapt' and that is an ongoing process
it's very clear to most of us that Robert is the best choice to be the QB here and for years to come

Why would anyone think that Cousins might be a better QB than Robert?

any HC coming in here is going to try and help Robert become the best QB he can be BECAUSE Robert is much more talented than Cousins

You would think, but it sounded to me like Gruden was saying that if he were the coach, he would make the change to Cousins.

Doesn't matter who they bring in as OC. If Snyder is showing preferential treatment to Griffin, that's a recipe for disaster. EVERYONE on the CBS pregame show yesterday confirmed this. Even if it's not true, the bug is still out there, and people would be leery to walk into a situation where the QB can undermine the head coach.

Why do you say that? Because you don't think he would want to, or you don't think The Danny would ever hire him?

100% agree. Anything that involves Snyder ends in failure. He needs to stay back ---- far back. If he is going to keep Allen, have him run the coaching search.

And MS should see out the season. Firing coaches mid-season is useless; especially when the OC and DC are directly tied to you.
RIP Sean Taylor. You will be missed.
