And it kills me when I watch games at home and I see a player that gets a penalty on another team and he walks off to the sideline and immediately a coach goes up to him and coaches him up. We don't see that here and I don't understand it. We haven't seen it in a while.
I'm telling you, Dan did this contract in a moment of weakness, and Shanny got to hear how Steve Largent told espn that Jim Zorn's contract says "he has to listen to everything Dan Snyder says." I don't know this for a fact, but I am guessing, and reasonablly assuming that Mike has a pretty strong contract in that regard.
EDIT: Dan doesn't want to get sued for breech of contract... I know he's that smart.
That year seem to beg for a rebuild but he didn't go there.They were already missing picks via Vinny and they compounded it by trading more for McNabb. Really IMO an awful year for multiple reasons. He did seem to get a hit with Trent Williams, this year he's stepped up. Perry is decent but not great. They had few picks that draft. J. Brown trade bad. Carriker trade good.
The following year, I thought both the draft and free agency were decent. Kerrigan, Jenkins, I like Helu when healthy. Royster seems decent in limited opportunities. I have been critical of Hankerson, Robinson and Paul but I'll give them some time. FA -- Bowen, Cofield, Chester --decent.
This draft so far looks ok but too early to tell -- free agency looks bad unless Garcon can get on the field.
My problems with Shanahan are:
1. Defense -- can he hire a good coordinator, and can he acquire difference makers. I got my doubts. and IMO you can't be a winner in this league if one sidfe of the ball is a disaster.
2. Coaching -- I didn't really expect this as an issue when he was hired, but i got concerns about him in terms of clock management, motivational skills -- and the penalty issues indicates that he might not be as detail driven as I thought.
3. Building a roster -- I don't think he's been a disaster, and i like how they have handled the cap and contracts. i don't think he's terrible at it but a mixed bag, more good than bad. But are you going to be a winner in this league with C plus, B minus type of work which is how i'd rate him.

Top two pass catching weapons (Garcon and Fred)
Top pass rusher
Top safety (not great, but top safety nonetheless)
Top 3-4 defensive lineman.
That has a serious impact on your talent.

Locklear has been decent at best and helped by a vet QB who knows how to get rid of the ball.
Polumbus has graded out pretty good at times. It's a wash, at worst.
As much as I love RG3, he is still a rookie and he took some bad sacks against CAR that weren't on the o-line.

"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."
