Mike Shanahan: No plans on resigning

Throughout the saga surrounding Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan the last few weeks, many pundits have focused on Washington owner Dan Snyder as a potential source of frustration for Shanahan. But in examining the situation in Dallas, perhaps Shanahan should be pleased with the setup in D.C.

One a two-game losing streak and in danger of missing out of the playoffs, Dallas owner Jerry Jones admitted this week that his team may have some "inadequacies." What makes Jones' comments interesting is that he also serves as the team's general manager. So if the Cowboys are inadequate, isn't Jones responsible?

Certainly some of Dallas' troubles can be blamed on injuries, particularly losing starting linebacker Sean Lee, as a Dallas radio report shows.

Losing a key defensive player hurts any team, but injuries are also part of life in the NFL, especially late in the season. Any questions about holes on the Cowboys roster should be aimed at the owner's suite.
