Fire them all.  Shannehan made the decision to go to a 3-4 scheme when he had 4-3 personnel.    The fucked up d is on him.  The d was pretty good before he got here. 

I honestly don't see this franchise ever turning it around.  I care very little at this point. 

when the Redskins are so bad it rather embitters the town....

this is the problem with the washington sports fans.  they are so damn apathetic. take a lesson from boston, run some players out of town, create media shitstorms, boo your teams for underachieving.  don't simply "stop caring" when they start sucking.  care more, and call out who deserves to be called out.  the likes of dc sports bog and adam kilgore might be respectable sports journalists, but you need that asshole like TJ Simers or Dan Shaughnessy to show that your fanbase gives a shit.  until then, washington will always be a second-tier sports town.
They were definitely getting booed on Monday Night Football against the 9ers.... Not only that, but the fans left, and the 9ers fans raised all kinds of noise and started VERY clear "Lets go 9ers" chants. Now, if I was there, I would have booed the shit out of those 9ers fans. But, Snyder sees an empty stadium with just opposing team fans remaining. He knows. He saw the way the stadium was during the playoff game last year and during that 7 game win streak. He's not an idiot.

So how would that work?  Like the monarchy in England?  Kyle just steps right in?  Serves the Washington team right for having such a clueless, fuck-knuckle Napoleon as an owner.

the strong support by the fans continues to be a source of comfort and pride

Talk about fair-weathered fans.  Anyways, the Ravens game was crazy but at least they came through in the end.

Shanahan MAY be fired tomorrow....  You don't leak a story like this:

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/10101919/mike-shanahan-was-ready-quit-washington-redskins-2012-season

...unless you have one foot out the door.

Thoroughly entertaning early slate of games.  If the Brown had made that field goal (CUNDIFF!) and/or the Steelers had made that return without stepping out of bounds (IRONY!), maybe one of the best ever.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/is-mike-shanahan-or-daniel-snyder-to-blame-washington-doesnt-deserve-either-of-them/2013/12/08/346ccb90-6068-11e3-8beb-3f9a9942850f_story.html

Seems the headline of the article is a lie.    When all fans leave at half time they do deserve Snyder and Shanahan. 
This is what Dan Snyder deserves. Not the team, not at all, but Daniel Snyder and Mike Shannahan and his arrogance. Seriously? Allowing 300+ yards on special teams and the FUCKING SPECIAL TEAMS COACH REMAINS ON THE TEAM. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. He's a Shannahan guy, so he'll stay. Same with Jim Haslett. That cunt hasn't produced a top 10 defense in ALL of his years as a coordinator OR a head coach. What does Dan Snyder hate? Not making money. How doesn't he make money? Whent the stadium fucking clears. Fuck him and fuck the whole organization. They've treated the fans like whores for years and this is what they get. I feel bad for the team, but even they have quit. I've always considered myself a die hard Skins fan, but this is just insanity. The coach doesn't care, the players don't seem to care, what more can we put up with?

People were GIVING away their tickets on my social media feeds. Last week they were going for a whopping $7 on StubHub. Screw them all. It isn't fair weather, when the team loses 5 in a row, it's snowing and raining, you're down by 4 fucking touchdowns at the half, I'd be the first one out the door. Dan Snyder needs to see what he has done. Shannahan and his whole coaching staff SHOULD be booed out of the stadium. Worthless garbage.

I know this is football and your posting on this thread automatically makes you a blockhead, but can you please refrain from using the "c" word?
