Darth started the thread and everyone wanted to talk about it, the discussion was the reason I started looking at the options....

Interesting reading going back over this thread.

And if they had paid attention to you and done a lot more of what you had in mind, we'd be in much better shape. I said it back then and I'll say it again: 1nik for GM!

We went 0-5 and then 8-3 the rest of the way with TONY BANKS at QB.

We need to do this again. Let go of (release, trade, whatever makes sense) virtually every high priced guy. Accumulate compensatory picks. Pick LINEMEN. Find a runner. They are everywhere. If the hole is there Rock or Betts or some other guy (did we cut a guy named Mason?) we never heard of who costs less than 1 million can run through it and if it's not there he can slam it up in there for a yard or two. We should NEVER spend big bucks or 1st round picks on a runner.

Many teams have shown us we could be better than we are now in TWO years while getting YOUNGER and CHEAPER.

Thank you, Mr. Shanahan.

I'm still a big fan of this FO and what they've done ..

as far as Mike's job as HC - I'm waiting to hear about RG3's knee ....

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

What's RG3 knee got to do with Shanny's job as a HC?

I would say most NFL HCs would have done the exact same thing! I have know problem with a HC letting a player that says he is OK and the Drs clear him play in a game.

Chris Clemons didn't have a prior injury and still toe his ACL (w/o contact). Who knows, but RG3 could have injured his lee in that game even w/o it being injured prior.

You can disagree with him leaving RG3 in the game when out was clear he was ineffective and I would understand that, but judging his coaching job based on the outcome of his knee exam is very short sighted in my mind. To me one had nothing to do with the other!

I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I can understand the question - I am ONLY pointing to how things were handled by Mike since the play involving Ngata

Mike is ultimately responsible for everything that happened and as HC, in my opinion, he did not handle the issue with RG3's knee very well at all

I did not mean to imply that the ONLY thing that mattered was IF RG3 required surgery ...
I should have said that AFTER the visit to Dr Andrews - in my opinion, Mike needs to clear the air about how he 'managed' all this

I think he should but I doubt seriously that he will

It's all over now and we just have to hope that Mike, Dr Andrews and RG3, all learned a lot about this



HEY - I feel Mike should have done better at a lot of things regarding RG3 since he hurt the knee - that's just my opinion
I DO NOT think he should be let go but, he would, IN MY OPINION, be a better man if he tried to be straight with all of us about this
NOT GOING TO HAPPEN :lol:
