Redskins Set To Introduce Shanahan

It’s January, the most exciting time of the year to be a Redskins fan…too bad none of the excitement takes place on the football field. The Redskins are set to introduce Mike Shanahan (forever to be known here at Fatpickled as “Old Wooden Teeth,” at a 2pm press conference as the new head coach and Executive VP (Vinny’s old title.) The reports say that Shanahan will have full control of all football decisions. I believe that to be true in the case of Bruce Allen, who was accentually hired by Shanahan…but in Snyder’s case I’m not so sure. We also have a war of words between Jason Campbell and Clinton Portis over leadership and work ethic. Never a dull moment in January…wait till free agency opens! More to come later, here’s a few links:

Cooley likes Shanhan hiring and the GM/HC relationship. (Redlasso)

I know Bill Romanowski takes a lot of pills…currently he’s taking the Redskins are going to the Super Bowl pill. (D.C. Sports Bog)

Cheers and Hail
