I think the Redskins should have stuck with the continuity they finally got going towards the end of the season and just made improvements on the OL.
I think paying a bunch for Shanahan, who couldn't make the playoffs the last three seasons in Denver and who's not much of a defensive coach will prove to be starting all over again once he brings in all new people.
I think the Skins should have just fired Zorn and made Sherm Smith the coach.
I'm sorry CCJ but you are so wrong about this. The staff Shanahan is assembling trumps the garbage that embarrassed us two weeks in a row on prime time football. What continuity? The team that went 4-12 with abysmal stats?
Shanahan is a winner. People bring up the lack of playoff wins without Elway but what great coach has won without a bonafide superstar QB? Shanahan was getting there with Cutler but the Broncos messed that up and look at them now, they appear to be headed the same path the Redskins were two years ago.
Shanahan is bringing in Mike Zimmer who people are crediting for the turnaround of the Bengals defense and Kyle Shanahan who is regarded as one of the brightest young offensive minds in the league. Most likely Alex Gibbs (the best OL coach in the league) will be joining him as well.
Sherm Smith? Seriously? Shanahan has the 2nd most wins of active coaches and the third best winning percentage. You don't pass on that chance to promote Sherm Smith who hasn't done squat in the league, let alone turn around one of the most horrid offenses.
