This is a 3 year plan but its a 3 year plan that gets us a superbowl.


1- bring in a young coach who is ok with just being a "one side of the ball" guy. but who will have the final say. preferably one who wants a high tempo pass heavy attack with bits of the read option and zone involved. YOu play Rg3 and morris to their strengths, in year one you shotgun draft Olinemen and sign any obvious upgrades in free agency. this is your priority. nothing else matters. you let the offence be creative and have fun, but with an eye on keeping Rg3 clean. in tear 2 you go get some more receivers and more olinemen.

2-go back to a 4-3 but you move rak to DE and you use kerrigan as a sam/ de on long passing downs, you use cofield as the 3 tech and bowen as the 1 tech or base end. you look at carriker as a base end if hes healthy, then you look for a NT and a base end in the draft. to develop.
you also look for upgrades at corner and safety but they arent imperative in year one. unless an obvious one falls to you somehow. in year two you get Dlinemen and best player available. we have holes everywhere on defence.

3-you bring in a high pressure defence guy, someone who wants to blitz and play aggressive defence, you let him know that your expectation is high energy defence and turnovers, and that you are ok with taking risks. he needs to know we wont be spending resoureces on the secondary for at least one season so he will need to be creative, because we want to build from the lines back.

4- you attack other teams practice rosters, if a team has a great dline but has young guys on their PR you go get them and give them a shot, same thing at every single position, we need to find guys and thats a good way to find hidden talent.

5- you set expectations properly, we dont need another shanny coming in and saying we are a superbowl team, you admit that you have holes and you let us know the plan to fill them.


normally I would say you draft and build your oline firstthen your run game, then you grab some recievers and a qb, but we went ass backwards, so now we need that OLINE asap, we have 2 decent receovers and a good te, so in year two we can go more defence and keep an eye on Oline, we should be drafting at least one decent round Oline every year, now in year 3 we go all in, we fill whatever holes are left after 3 drafts with whatever free agents are available and we go on a run.

if we go 3-4 we are still short a nosetackle and at least one effective DE and 3 linebackers because Fletch is done. we will lose rak because effectively he and kerrigan play the same position in a 3-4 if we go back to 4-3 we have a good rush end in rak, a solid 3 tech in cofield, a solid 1 tech and base end in bowen and a solid rotational base end in carriker. we have a great sam in kerrigan who can flex to de on passing downs riley would be a solid mac, so wed need a will.

My real reasoning is that we need to make certain that we do not sell out for one year which is likely what shanny will do if he is given one last year.

I guess we can pray that Louis Nix drops to us in the second round, or Hageman from Minnesota. McCullers from Tennessee seems like a Shanahan-type pick (besides the fact that he's an underclassman), because he has under-performed, but played better against tougher opponents. At 6'8, 360lbs, he would be quite the road block in the middle of the DL.

Well, not being ready to to scuttle the ship, yet, I'll present a different formula. I'll also assume Shammy is still too arrogant to admit the 3-4 has been an unmitigated disaster, and stick with it. This includes Haslett. I don't see him reversing a Shamahan decision.

1. Upgrade, as best as can be done, through the draft, free agency, trades, maturation of existing younger/practice squad players, or kidnapping.
RT-S-NT-RG-WR-S-ILB-DE Easily doable. The degree to "how much better" is the $64mil question. But better, can't be that hard to do.

2. Fine a goddamn return man that can return both KO's and punts.

3. Reduce season ticket prices. And don't raise them again until after 3 consecutive non-losing seasons.

Shanahan had the look of a guy with no answers walking off the field after the loss to the Giants.

Due to his own stubbornness and that if his son the Redskins won't run a traditional WCO that will accent getting the ball out quick and avoiding long developing two man routes off play action.

Use Griffin's mobility but side to side so he can buy time when things break down to make plays down the field. But no more triple option with Griffin getting clobbered by DEs and strong side linebackers.

On defense Shanahan admitted he wanted to install the 3-4 on his next team when he was sitting out 2009.

He never considered how much that would cost Washington in terms of picks and free agents to dismantle the 4-3.

Remember Andre Carter and Lorenzo Alexander as outside linebackers?

Kedric Golston as an undersized DE at 280?

Inside linebackers Riley and Fletcher playing at 240 and 245.

Go look at how big the Steelers backers were when they won the Super Bowl.

Anyone remember Jerry Ball?

The guy was 5'10 and 330 pounds and was a pro bowl NT for 5-6 years with the Lions.

Almost unblock able because of his strength and low center of gravity.

So I just need to shrink a couple inches and scarf down 150 pounds of cheeseburgers and Guiness?

Fine.

Anything for the team.
