GOOD OL' FASHIONED STANDOFF: In DC, Mike Harris writes Shanahan is "doing his level best to get fired," because if he "walks, he doesn't get" the $7M owed in the final year of his contract. If Snyder can "wait for Shanahan to get so fed up that he quits," he "doesn't have to pay out that load of cash" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 12/10). Also in DC, Maske & Jones report Shanahan and Snyder spoke yesterday, but there was "no apparent resolution to Shanahan's status with the franchise on anything more than a temporary basis" (WASHINGTON POST, 12/10). Shanahan said, "All I'm saying to you is I get along with Dan quite well" (WASHINGTON TIMES, 12/10). In DC, Jason Reid writes for Snyder, the departure of Shanahan would "open a door," as he could "finally structure the team's dysfunctional football operation the right way." Snyder should "hire a true general manager who possesses the scouting chops to improve the talent on the field" (WASHINGTON POST, 12/10). Also in DC, Mike Wise writes, "There is only one era that needs to be over today: the Daniel Snyder era, which 14 years later has yet to begin in earnest." Wise: "When will all those maddening falls and winters at FedEx Field manifest themselves in something other than brilliant marketing and windfall profits?" (WASHINGTON POST, 12/10).
