    After years of having no offensive line, except for the one consisting of Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato, and that father and son clown act, the Shananigans, It is nice to finally see a youth movement arriving in Washington in the most vital of all positions. Sadly, our head coach thought it best to waste a year acting like an ass, trying to assert dominance over certain players he took personal vendettas against. Compared to Bill Belichick, Mike Shanahan is a toilet fish. How he found work in this league could only have happened in Washington…..HAIL TO THE REDSKIN PLAYERS….all the others can go to hell!
