Mark Schlereth Points Out Shanahan's Big Fault (Again)

A month and half ago, I had the pleasure of talking to the former Redskin and Offensive Lineman for Shanahan in Denver, Mark Schlereth. In that interview, he highlighted Shanahan's horrid cycle of bad draft picks and subsequent, poor free agent signings. Mark was on Mike and Mike again talking about Shanahan:

"I would say the one criticism I have is a lot of times he's such a control freak that he doesn't allow his coaches to coach," Schlereth said on Mike and Mike in the Morning. "I think that's an issue. You have to have a system of checks and balances where you can argue, you can fight and you can say, ‘We're not going to do it that way.' I don't know that he still has that in the place that he is now, or at the end of his tenure in Denver."

Pro Football Talk  makes a lot of good interpretations on this. Is it functional for a Head Coach to do all the work? I can't recall micro-managing ever working. Either way, it appears on the outside that from 2009 to 2010, the Redskins traded one dysfunction for another. It's easy to say this one year in after a horrible season, but the Redskins are sitting with two less draft picks and more holes than Ken's tightie whities. Both situations stink.

Is it time to post this picture yet?
