I wonder if any NFL fans like their team's D? ---Quote--- *TheMachinist* Watch the Bills defense make the Redskins QB play like Mark Rypien in...

Are you sure the last comment wasn't taken from this board at some point, and the team names switched? :)

Serv, I'm curious. Lotsa chatter on Shanny elder, but only one comment on Kyle that you posted. Were there more, or was that pretty much it?

(I love this feature, btw, great job as always, one of the things I look forward to every week)

G., that was the only post I ran across that specifically referenced Kyle as the main subject. The Shanahan threads in general read like they could have been copy/pasted into any thread about Shanny on any Skins board and fit quite nicely. I thought there were some pretty valid points made on both sides actually.

Yeah - serv gets mad props for his reconnaisance skills. Man can snoop and poop with the best. We may even get him a Ghillie Suit :) Great job serv!

Some pretty sharp posts there by rival fans - UDFA in particular wowed me.

Aren't you being a little premature on deeming Shanahan as a failure? In only his second year he has substantially turned over the roster. He has gotten rid of the high priced divas (such as Portis, Hanyneworth etc) and added a number of contributing mid-level free agents. When he took over the team it was at a very bloated cap level. In a very short time span he has shed a lot of the high priced and non-productive players and put the franchise in a very sound and flexible cap position.

The Skins simply don't have a franchise qb on their roster. They didn't reach to address that critical need in this past draft. They will in next year's draft or through free agency address that position. When MS took over he made it known to the very impatient and petulant owner that it was going to take 4-5 years to build a roster to become an upper echelon team. In two years he has done a lot to move this franchise away from the past short term approach to a more football (less marketing) type approach to building a winner.


Smart guy.
