Shanahan Fired As Redskins Coach

Mike Shanahan was fired as coach of the Washington Redskins on Monday, one day after a season that began with great expectations ended with a 3-13 record and eight losses to close out the year.

Shanahan had a 24-40 regular-season record, plus one playoff loss, and coached them for four seasons of a five-year contract. The Redskins had losing records in three of Shanahan's four seasons.

Owner Daniel Snyder said in a statement that "Redskins fans deserve a better result. We thank Mike for his efforts on behalf of the Redskins. We will focus on what it takes to build a winning team, and my pledge to this organization and to this community is to continue to commit the resources and talent necessary to put this team back in the playoffs."

Never hire an NFL coach with an Irish name,even if he was born and raised here.

Snyder is an ass. It all starts at the top. Bad ownership translates into bad teams.

Bill Walsh - 49ers
Tom Coughlin - Giants
McCarthy - Packers

Not an exhaustive list of Super Bowl winning coaches.

Don't think Shanahan did a good job in DC but fail to see where his ethnic background, or any other coach's for that matter, plays a role.

You're penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct!

Put on your seat belt,because 2014 will be the year that insulted your intelligence in many ways.Among the issues that will arise will be the Supreme Courts involvement in forcing the Redskins to change their team name.If they succumb to that request and violate the constitutional amendment that allowed that or any name to be used,the floodgate will open.THOUSANDS of pro,college ,and high school teams nationwide will be targeted.
