When Mike Shanahan took the job as head coach of the Washington Redskins, he was expected to do what he did with John Elway in Denver. He had Donovan McNabb—a veteran quarterback who should've had a Super Bowl Ring.
McNabb played only one season in Washington and did not have much success. The biggest success for that season was beating the Cowboys and the Eagles in Philadelphia.
Last year, Rex Grossman said he believed the Redskins were the team to beat in the NFC East. He was wrong.
He couldn't have been more wrong.
The Redskins should improve this year, but not enough to contend for a playoff spot.
Last year should be considered a lost season for Shanahan, but instead, it has put his job in question for various reasons.
