[QUOTE]Rick Snider of the [URL="http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/sports/Sources_-Gruden-atop-Snyder_s-wish-list-8371348-64019622.html"][B]DC Examiner reports[/B][/URL] that sources have said that former Bucs coach and Monday Night Football commentator Jon Gruden is high atop the wish list of Redskins owner Dan Snyder to replace Jim Zorn. Check that. He appears to be THE choice Snyder would like to bring to the Redskins. [/QUOTE]

Gruden is willing to deal with Snyderrato in charge. That tells me, expect more fo the same.

I hope not. This guy had like 5 different QB's in Tampa Bay and could not decide who he's starter was. Name me a great QB he had? Rich Gannon, Jeff Garcia? PLEASEEE!!! No thanks!!

I guess I'll just merge the posts I had in the Shanahan Rumors thread about Gruden into one post here.

Well this won't please too many people

"Snyder is seeking is a candidate willing to leave major personnel decisions to Cerrato and the owner. NFL sources close to Gruden said that's not an expected deal breaker."

Gruden with Bruce Allen, heck even just Bruce Allen without Gruden, could have been nice. I'm not sure who the sources are who say Gruden is interested in the Redskins, I'm curious to know who they are. Not saying they're wrong but I've got arguably the best source when it comes to Gruden and in the last few weeks this source has repeatedly said "not interested" But...it's only October.

In the short term, I suppose this isn't awful. In the short term perhaps. I can see Gruden firing up the team and getting them top play lights out for a couple of years. But that will fizzle out rather quickly

It's probably not the most ideal scenario

I think part of why VC would stick around is it's just a matter who you get along with, happens all over the place, and Snyder and VC get along. Another, bigger, part of it is that even though VC has been around for the last decade for the most part it's only been the last two years that he had the final authority that he has now. And I know what you're thinking, if he's going to be patient with Cerrato why not Zorn? I don't know the answer. I do still suspect though that he (Cerrato) sooner than later won't have quite the input he does now. Again, unless someone like Jerry Gray becomes our full time head coach...and that would be a stunner.

Chris Mortenson has speculated that Holmgren as GM and Gruden as head coach will end up somewhere together...but not in DC

I can tell you that as much as I don't like Zorn right now I would be pissed if DS brought in Fassel. I can almost hear his brain now..." The fans will take anyone now so long as they have been a HC before. Now I can finally get the man I wanted all along."

I hope so. Who would Gruden [U]Keyshawn[/U] first. I'd say portis and he would want to keep JC at QB.

Its Vinny that has caused all this heart ache and pain I feel. Is there anyone going start an on-line petition to fire Vinny. Lets hope soon.

If Gruden is willing to take it with Snyderrato in place, then it will be Gruden. That si exactly what Snyder wants.

Too bad for Redskins fans. We lose again. As long as the front office remains the same, expect more of the same.

I'll take lights out for couple years and fizzle out over what we have had past 18 years.

i've heard rumors that gruden is interrested in coaching the chargers, if that job ever came open. i also heard gruden was interrested in coaching a college team, notre dame, i think. these rumors were heard on sports radio,so don't know how much truth there is to them.

What happened to the burgundy revolt? Picketing FedEx Field demanding that Snyder sell the team is the only way things will ever get better for us.
