This is just a hypothetical question, but considering people were quick to say this of Joe Gibbs I say this question is totally fair.
The Redskins are better run organization, save the Albert Haynesworth situation, and anyone can see that. But two games in a row we have seen the team fail to make adjustments and losing because of that. In Shanahan’s last few seasons in Denver, he experienced late collapses. In 2008, the Broncos crashed to earth, despite leading the AFC West and missed the playoffs all together. Was that because Shanahan was unable to adjust and keep his team moving forward?
Two quick points that have led me to this idea
1. With the clock ticking and the pass game needing to come into play, why was Torain still in there? Result the pass protection suffered and he even contributed in giving up a sack.
2. The middle of the field was extremely soft, why no adjustments? And why not play the run tighter?
I have yet to see Mike Shanahan make a mid-game adjustment. That is what I am looking for. I just hope it happens soon.
I think I am going to be sick…but what do you think?
