Shanahan says Redskins are building "the right way"

By Dan Steinberg

I know these are just semantics, but nothing is going on, and I need some cheap Redskins traffic. Last offseason, the rhetoric was about how The Future Is Now, even though that wasn't what many fans wanted to hear. This offseason, the rhetoric seems to have shifted.

Redskins.com
has a video of Shanahan addressing some Virginians in honor of the 40th anniversary of their move to Virginia. And the rhetoric was about taking things slow.

"In order to build the type of team that I think we'll all be proud of year-in and year-out, you've got to build a foundation," Mike Shanahan said. "And I promise you, we're gonna do it the right way. We're not gonna take any shortcuts. When we do start going in the right direction and start winning the type of games in the playoffs that you'll all be proud of, that you've grown accustomed to through the years. I think you'll see that hey, we're gonna do things the right way. Like I said from the start, you want to do [things] with the right skill and with the right type of mindset with our players. You want to make sure you take your time and do it the right way."

Take your time? Not take shortcuts? Really?

"You've seen it before, people are trying to take shortcuts to win one game," Bruce Allen said at the same event. "No."

Sweet. No more shortcuts.

Just don't draft Ricky Stanzi. He's a good kid, deserves better than to play for the Redskins.

USA #1

Ditto what XCountryTrevor said.

If they're serious about what they're saying, it would be a first under the Snyder regieme

Whatever. They'll always suck. Can't win at home. Can't win in the division. They'll never host a home playoff game.

The Detroit Lions have shown more progress coming off a season where they lost every game.
