Thank you for hiring Chris Foerster as your O-Line coach
San Francisco 49ers fans
NFC East pass rushers
Best pawn off to the Redskins since the team got 3rd and 4th round picks for Brandon Lloyd
Not all the posts reflected this perspective, however;DeMarcus Ware is going to have a field day whenever he plays Washington now.

The only thing to be said in his favor is how little talent he had to work with. Fans, being fans, like to think our guys are decent. They aren't. This is one of the worst lines in the league. Heitmann is vastly over-rated by fans on this site. Staley is solid, but nothing to get excited about as a LT. Sims and Snyder are awful. And, I can see potential in Rachal, but he certainly hasn't reached it yet. Both he and Baas are sub par and would have a hard time finding a starting spot on most teams.

He has a tough task in Washington, as Mike Shanahan plans to make the offensive line his top priority and rebuild from top to bottom
There's the problem if he teaches zone blocking with the Ravens.....the Ravens O-line has been for the past decade a big mauling O-line with Ogden being the most athletic player despite also being huge.http://ravens24x7.blogspot.com/2006/08/so-tell-me-why-does-chris-foerster-get.html
Looks like he wasn't too well liked in Baltimore as well. From what little I could find he seems to teach the zone blocking scheme.
That being said, who would you have recommended for the coaching staff and how do you come up with a C- grade?Wow...
I'm willing to give all these new coaches a chance, but if you ask me, Shanahan is a solid C- in recruiting top not coaching talent.
