A call to suspend Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan.
(Page 2 of 2)
By refusing to exercise his authority when it was most needed — at a crucial juncture in a playoff game involving his franchise quarterback, 22-year-old rookie Robert Griffin III — Shanahan disgraced himself. And he failed his team, his quarterback, his players, the Redskins organization, and the National Football League.
It’s important that the NFL make an example of Shanahan and suspend him for at least several games. Otherwise, his bad and irresponsible coaching decisions will be emulated and repeated, and more players will needlessly be put at risk.
Suspending Shanahan will help ensure that head coaches take their responsibilities (to the game) seriously; it will help ensure that players get the protection that they need; and it will help ensure that fans are able to see great players, such as Robert Griffin III, play for many years to come.
Mike Shanahan is a great coach, but he made a very bad decision for which he must be held accountable. The needs of the league and the needs of the players are paramount.
Roger Goodell, do the right thing: suspend Mike Shanahan — now.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
