What is Mike Shanahan going to do? Will he even be the coach next year?
With the team playing as badly as it is and Shanahan's losses when it comes to the Donovan McNabb and Albert Haynesworth situations, it's a fair question.
McNabb just signed a new contract, but there's an escape clause for the Redskins for next year. That being said, there are rumors that Shanahan may once again bench McNabb, who has been inconsistent all year.
McNabb is no spring chicken, but Rex Grossman is a backup quarterback for a reason.
The Redskins probably are going to draft a quarterback next year. The question is whom and in what round?
UPDATE: McNabb has been benched for the rest of the season and Shanahan is evaluating the rest of the quarterbacks.
My instant read on this is the Redskins probably will try and trade McNabb before cutting him, but McNabb will not be back in Washington next year, of that I'm pretty sure of.
So it's a draft pick for the Redskins as I find it doubtful at this point they're going to trade again.
This is assuming Shanahan also is around for the 2011 campaign as well, which is no guarantee at this point.
