Redskins' Kyle Shanahan fine with all his critics | John Keim
"I expect to get criticized," he said. "I expect it from you guys. I expect it from my wife, and I expect it from myself. It's embarrassing. I've never been shut out before, and I don't ever want it to happen again, but it is what it is, and you've got to man up and deal with it." Yes, even from his wife. "She was pretty short with me," he said. "She said run the ball more." (OK, NOW IT's EMBARRASSING).

Jason Cole: Redskins should fire Mike Shanahan - DC Sports Bog 
"I do not believe in guys winning a Super bowl one place and trying to recreate that magic somewhere else. I don’t think they have the energy, the emotion that it takes, the patience that it takes to really do that job. So Mike’s got to go, I’m sorry." (wait what?)
