WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - The Redskins’ devastating 34-27 loss to the Vikings Thursday night makes them 3-6 on the year, a long shot to make the playoffs, and brings Mike Shanahan’s future with the franchise into question.

Shanahan, now 24-33 in Washington, isn’t getting the type of production out of his team that warrants a new contract, and frankly, if one look could tip Dan Snyder’s hand as to his plans to either extend Shanahan or not, it would have been his face as he exited the Metrodome in Minnesota.

“I watched Dan Snyder and he just looked like he was seething as he walked out of the stadium,” Mike Jones of the Washington Post told the Junkies Friday.

“Because the NFC East is so pathetic, looking at the schedule – Dallas has a pretty tough schedule coming up, Philadelphia has a tough go – there still is a sliver of a chance,” Jones said of Shanahan’s potential to get extended, when asked if the writing was on the wall for the coaching staff.

“If they are competitive – there is a chance that they could finish 7-9 – I think that gets it done for Mike Shanahan,” Jones laid out the terms for the current regime to survive this season. “Even if they’re close at 6-10, that might as well.”

With just one year remaining on his contract, Shanahan will enter a lame duck year next season, should Snyder choose not to extend his stay in Washington.
