The success of Rogers and Carter this week is finally making the obvious clear to so many deluded fans. The Skins are on a 5-year plan. They have to be, because when Shanahan came on he decided to remake the defense in addition to building an offense. He inherited a perfectly fine defense, lower top 10, and blew it up. So instead of needing only to focus on repopulating nearly every offensive position, he set him self up for rebuilding the entire team, nearly every position. What could have been a three year ramp toward competitiveness and respectability, because of that decision, could now take half a decade or more. And who knows whether it will work out in the end. For that, you have to blame him. And Snyder, for buying in.
