Previewing every NFL game
by John Czarnecki

Washington: Owner Daniel Snyder has hired a coaching consultant during the season, and both times — Mike Nolan and Steve Spurrier — the head coach was a goner the very next season. Jim Zorn appears to be a dead coach walking with old-timer Sherm Lewis hired to oversee his game plans. Word has it Snyder approached former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan in the offseason to be his head coach and has made another attempt during the season, only to be rebuffed both times. Despite being owed millions by Denver owner Pat Bowlen, Shanahan does want to return to the sidelines, but he wants to wait until the league season ends and consider his options.

Let's see. "De plane" was seen in Denver after the loss to the Lions, which could very well mean that they met with Shanahan. But then the unconfirmed meetings get interpreted as job offers, followed by the inevitable "rebuff" when the hire doesn't happen.

Wouldn't it make for a better report if they at least mentioned other possible conclusions?

How about contingency plans? Meet with people they may want and see if there may be a fit if they do decide to make a change?

If they have met with Shanahan, it doesn't necessarily mean that they've already decided to make a change, or that any offers were made.


JJ ripped into the Skins today before the game, and I have to say, he was right on every point he made
