You have to hand it to Daniel Snyder. He ran Mike Shanahan, Kyle Shanahan, Sean, McVay, and Matt LaFleur out of town over the past 10 years. Granted, Shanny Sr. was 24-40, but he did reach the playoffs with Kurt Cousins. So, Danny boy ran them all out of town and hired Jay Gruden. Who he just fired. At 35-50. Like Mike, he had a one-and-done playoff year with Cousins but the rest was a mess of firing quarterbacks, .and meddling in football decisions.
When Kyle Shanahan was asked what he liked about his time in DC, he said he liked working with his dad, and enjoyed working with the other coaches on the staff. When he was asked what he didn’t like, he said “everything else”.
Shanny’s not the flashy type but that quote opened up a lot of ears around the NFL. Mainly because Snyder has the uncanny ability to piss off everyone who works for he and Bruce Allen, the architects of disaster in Washington, to the tune of 140-185. So, while Snyder looks for his 10th coach in his 21st season as owner, he gets to revel in the fact he hired and fired 3 of the hottest young coaches in the NFL. And dragged Kyle’s dad through the mud among the backstabbing and meddling, I think we don;t have to worry about this game being overlooked by Kyle.
