07:22 AM ET 12.17 | In the midst of this dispiriting run down the stretch of a dispiriting season, media outlets have reported in recent weeks that Mike Shanahan wants out. [Shanahan] has routinely denied to respond to any such reports when asked during his various news conferences over the past two weeks. He walked off the podium Sunday following the game when asked a question about the source of the reports. "I can't do anything about those reports," Shanahan said Monday. "I can guess where they come from. I know there's a lot of people, maybe in my past or maybe [defensive coordinator Jim] Haslett's past or with [offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan] -- hey, not everybody's happy. When you do have three wins, it can be a little bit tough. A lot of things do come out. It's part of this business."

The man in the mirror.

Maybe, just maybe the Redskins (players, coaches, and GM) aren't as good as they thought they were. You are what your record says you are. Instead of hurt feelings and sniping at each other, maybe they just need to get better and win.

Shanahan is a joke

Yeah... They come from your close friend at the Washington Post.

When Snyder had more control over the team, we won more games... Just sayin.

This fool has double digit losses in 3 of the 4 years he's been here.

PLEASE fire him, so the stadium isn't empty next season, at least.

I am definitely not a Redskins fan, but still remember the teams of the Jack Kent Cook era. It is sad to see such a proud franchise run into the ground like this. I also remember the stories of people passing down their season tickets with a years long waiting list.

Dallas has the same problems, but it seems the opposing teams fans fill the stadium for Jerrah.

It's sad to buy EXPENSIVE tickets for a big game, only to be surrounded by opposing fans at home.

I tried for almost 20 years to become a Redskins fan, but I just couldn't do it. I became a Ravens fan and have been so happy with them since I did. They are fun to watch. If you watched the game last night against the Lions, you know what I mean.

Me and my wife watched that game... She says, "The Ravens are mean and dirty..." I told her... "That's how football really is supposed to be, we've been watching the Skins too long."

All this talk, gossip, and politick doesn't change the fact that massive change needs to happen on that team from top to bottom.

Many teams lose each year without their top guys former or current stabbing each other in the back in public like they are doing here.

The Leaks came from the White House!!!

December 17, 2013  08:56 AM ET

I can bet my bottom dollar that RGIII is leaking most of this information!!!!

Can I pick "All of the Above"?

It's a good thing the Skins are such a mess. I would have to climb the clock tower if Dallas sucked this bad and Washington was undefeated.

It's as ugly as I've ever seen it.
