Mike Shanahan's Reputation Is Far Better Than He Actually Is

Occasionally, I write guest posts for  Today they posted an article of mine that I wrote about  Washington Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan.

In the post I discuss the history of Mike Shanahan's coaching career and make a claim that he's not nearly as good as his reputation.  He has two fundamental flaws: he can't organize the defensive side of the ball, and he has little ability to select a quarterback (in his history, both Elway and Steve Young were already there when he coached them to Super Bowls, two of the greatest QBs ever).

He also proved in Denver that he can't properly run a team when he's given full control, and that's a major reason why he was fired there.  Apparently, Washington owner Dan Snyder didn't get that message and gave him the same duties when he hired him.
