So coach speaks up and tells the truth and you jump all over him?
Don't tell me you your self doesn't see the season as being over?
Another Knee Jerk Thread
The game today was awful. It was a humbling reminder of the kinds of losses that we seem to have on a yearly basis.
I am a big supporter of Shanahan. I still am. He has made some missteps, but I still think ultimately he will get it right. However, I don't agree with his press conference statements. But getting your butt kicked will make you say some crazy things. As exhibit "A", I offer you ES.
thanks to soup for the sig!
Instead, he sounds defeated. And that attitude WILL resonate.
The only hope is that the players say, "no, **** this. We're not going down without a fight". Which would either mean Shanahan is a master motivator or a total flop in everything he's done in DC.
Not taking sides one way or the other, but many people on this board we talking about the season being lost weeks ago because of our ****ty secondary. Suddenly, everyone wants to fire Shanahan.
Let's remember, our overall defense was lacking on talent. Now, Orakpo and Carriker are gone. Face it, we weren't that good when they were playing. The only decent player in the secondary is Hall, and he is average. Fletcher aged a lot this summer and should retire after the season. Throw in crap schemes and you have a recipe for disaster.
We have 2 decent receivers, Garcon and Moss, and only one of them has played any real time this year, and he's the aging one. Brown hasn't seen the field, and probably wont. Helu is out, Royster is weak. The salary cap debacle cost us at least 2, and as many as 3, starters. We also traded a second pick away to move up for RG3. Plus, we took Cousins in the 4th, meaning that we essentially gave up two high pics this year. That is a lot for 1 team to absorb in a year and be competitive.
Not saying Kyle's play calling is great, but until last week, it was scoring us some points. Either he lost his touch, or they have seen enough of us to have an idea what's coming.
So apparently he's either above reproach for what comes out of his own mouth in your opinion. Or your reading comprehension really is that bad as I never suggested we blow the whole thing up.
Sorry the difference and justifiable criticism there-in is apparently lost on you.
Anypne who defends Shanahan today should be prepared for 5 -11 next year too.....why would we expect any different?
What you call a whine is what some of us call yhe truth......

"Washington strolled to the NFC championship, outscoring their two playoff opponents by a combined total of 48 points. Their domination was more than impressive, it was historic. The 1991 Redskins boasted the largest average margin of victory among all Super Bowl champions."
--- America's Game
So, are people mad at Shanahan for saying it...or because his words ring true?
Where is this from the coaching staff? Nowhere to be found...
Emotionally: Yes never give up!
Logically: **** it! Every player on the team is on notice. Either you want to play or you don't. Either you want to be here next year for the playoff run or you don't.
Personally: It is a shame to have someone like RG3 and not do anything drastic to justify the price you paid to get him.
