    Plug the holes Mike, plug the holes...

    All the top teams build the team through the draft and make some tweaks in free agency. Glad we're doing that.

    Have you ever noticed how some of the great GMs, Coaches and so on, have a long run, but once they go downhill a bit, they seldom learn a new way of doing things. They were hot employing a certain style / strategy, but once the magic goes, they seem to only remember the banner days and how they managed then.

      Of course.. They better get rid of Haynesworth first before getting free agents. Gives them more money to spend.

        The only thing good they've hit on recently was Brian Orakpo.....
        Of course they do, but it starts and ends with drafting. If Shanny doesn't draft well, these free agent signings won't matter.

          I do agree. It's hard for these guys with huge egos to learn from their mistakes and do things differently.

            GREAT MOVE, GLAD TO SEE THIS REGIME WANTING TO GET BETTER.

            "Washington Redskins expected to pursue multiple free agents."

            RETARDS, THIS IS WHY SHANAHAN SUCKED.
            Well said. In my books, Shanahan is still a top-3 coach in the league. He'll turn that program around.

            His two biggest issues right now are Haynesworth and McNabb. He didn't sign Haynesworth and is just trying to make the most of that situation. Mcnabb was a mistake, but a mistake many other coaches would have made. Who could have known that this highly-accomplished veteran wasn't scheme-versatile?

            If Washington can get a quality NT and Beck turns out to be what Shanahan thinks he is (and NO coach in the NFL knows offense and QBs more than Shanahan), they'll be in good shape.

            Another thing people overlook is that the ZBS running game takes a season or two to kick in. Remember Kubiak's first year in Houston when they struggled to run the ball? Look at them now.

            I see Washington owning their division starting 2012, if not sooner.
            Hoping for a defensive-minded head coach and a return to the ZBS on offense. At the very least, no more cheaters for head coach.
