Mike Shanahan And Leslie Frazier Given The Boot As Coaches

You knew that Black Monday was coming after some of the teams struggle all season long. The Washington Redskins said goodbye to Mike Shanahan after a 3-13 season and the Minnesota Vikings said goodbye to Leslie Frazier as well. Both coaches struggled to get there teams to play well this season. Minnesota and Washington along with Cleveland are looking for new coaches.

 There could be a few other teams that fire there coaches as well. I think Tampa Bay and Jacksonville could be two teams that may pull the trigger. Both of these teams struggled this season as well. No matter what happens we will see some new faces in new places this upcoming NFL season. Winning is what you must do and when it does not happen usually the coach must go.

Is the Risk Worth It For the Washington Redskins?

The Washington Redskins will be moving up in the draft thanks to a trade they have made with the St. Louis Rams. Did the Redskins make a wise move? They did it in the hopes of drafting Robert Griffin III. Washington will give up its first- and second-round selections this year, plus first-round picks in 2013 and 2014 in the trade. This does seem a lot for a player that has yet to play an NFL down for a team.

Robert Griffin III seems he has all the tools to be successful, but that is no guarantee. The Redskins have so many holes on their team I think he will struggle in Washington. The Redskins are giving up a lot to get him and this puts a lot of pressure on him to perform at a high level. My personal opinion is he is a talented player, but not a franchise quarterback. I could be wrong, but we will find out real soon. I think Washington would have been better off to go in a different direction, but we will have to see how it works out for them.

Donovan McNabb Trade In Place To Go To Vikings

It looks like the Donovan McNabb experiment is over in Washington as there is a trade in place to move him Minnesota. The details still have to be worked out, but as long as the deal does not fall through McNabb will be wearing purple in the 2011 season. This would be a good fit for McNabb who comes to a team that is good and has a chance to lead them to the playoffs. In Washington they were not going anyway, so it is a fresh start for McNabb.

For the Redskins it was a easy way to end the Donovan McNabb experiment, and they can move on from it all. Many people thought McNabb to Washington was a good fit, but it never was. He did not get along with Coach Mike Shanahan and leaving is probably best for both sides. Each side gets a fresh start and that is what both need right now. It will be interesting to see how well Donovan McNabb does in Minnesota.
