    Had Shanahan had a HOF bound QB after Elway retired in 99, I'm sure Shanny would have made several return trips to the Super Bowl while in Denver between 1999-2008.

    Oh and by the way, Shanahan had a year away from football after Bowlen fired him over horride Defensive performances. The year away allowed Shanny to do a lot of soul searching in this regard. In Washington he has left the Defensive side of the ball to Jim Haslett while concentrating on the offensive side of the ball.

    Once again, Shanahan is just a prennial pro bowl future hall of fame QB away of returning the Skins back to Super Bowl appearances.

    Someone needs to pick his brain and find out his secret.
    Its no secret, Shanahan has some of the best zone blocking assist. coaches in the NFL who are experts at teaching RB's how to run in a zone blocking scheme. Hell even Moreno is a zone blocking RB who would excel in that scheme. The zone blocking scheme is a great counter measure to keep high scoring passing attacks on the sidelines, if you get the correct RB's in that system.

    Its been 3 years since the Broncos fans have not seen a zone blocking scheme in a Denver Bronco offense on the field. We can all see over the last 3 years how the fans long for a return of the zone blocking schemes that made NFL teams respect the Broncos running attack. The last 3 years teams don't even bother to stack the box to stop Denver's running attack......because the Broncos stop themselves!!!

    John Fox needs to learn the zone blocking scheme if he wants to see improvement in this area.

    meh, until I see a winning record and the Redskins in the playoffs, I won't be so quick to put Shanahan back up on a pedestal.

    2 seasons with the Raiders, 14 seasons in Denver, and he had 7 seasons total, where he posted double digit wins. 7 seasons out of 16, isn't all that great. and in this league, unless you're the Seahawks and in a bad NFC West, you usually need double digit wins to get in the playoffs, especially in the NFC East.

    we'll see how well his team performs in the 2nd half of the season, before I crown them NFC East champs. They still have to go up against NYG and Philly.

    shanahan also is not pleased with the running game

    Ryan Torain looked amazing last game getting 7.1 a carry, helu is getting 5.3 a carry


    66 carrys 233 yards in four games isn't overly impressive.
    Doesn't matter. Tim is still the starter, Torain is still 3rd string.

    The Redskins run game looks nice that's the point, doesn't matter which of them is having the better year.

    Actually he wasn't demoted, Torain was just giving more carries on Sunday. The Redskins still have Tim listed as the started with Torain as 3rd string.

    Shanny likes to rotate his running backs, no matter if they are impressive or not.

    Next game Helu might get the majority of the carries and look the best, or Hightower, or Torain. You wont know till gameday.

    Maybe if we keep our fingers crossed, in 2yrs if Shanny gets canned Pat will bring him back....I can hope.

    I've got mixed feelings. I can't stand the Redskins and Dan Snyder but really want Shanny to do well.

    I know Pat Bowlen was frustrated but I think he needed to give Shanahan a little more time. Cutler and Marshall had just gone to the Pro Bowl, Scheffler, Hillis, Royal and our O-line all looked good, and there was always a CHANCE that he would have eventually gotten the defense to at least a respectable level.

    Oh, well. Spilled milk and all that....

    It's very impressive how the Redskins were supposed to be a joke, and Shannahan has them 3-1. Plus, if Torain or Hightower played for us, they probably would've sucked.

    to Mike. I'm rooting for ya!

    When I watching the game I couldn't help to think there is only so much you can go to the pass play action when the running game is not working ...It seemed like almost every pass was ppa ...

    He do it again, Beck will be in quicker than Chris Johnson can run.

    Shanny doesn't let QB's preform bad. 1-2 screw ups the back-up is in.

    We need Shanny back.

    All kinds of examples ...

    A lot was made out of the ending relationship between Plummer and Shanahan nevermind though that he revived Plummer's career,Not that his career stats look good but could you imagine wo ....

    Not saying that Davis,Sharpe,Smith wouldn't have became the players that we know them as now on different teams ... Just saying 6th,7th,and undrafted became one of the most dominate offenses of all time ....

    I'll never take anything away from Shanahan ... I will say this though his ability to insert players get production and win would eventually catch up with him in his ending years in Denver ...Can't go back but I would certainly like to seen him with a few more years of the '06 draft ...

    I'm certainly impressed with Shanny. Truth be told, he could take anyone of us, and we'd have 1K rushing yard seasons. He knows the running game.

    If Washington could get a TRUE franchise QB, and fix up some spots on defense, they'll be contenders.
