Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

Hmm...with all of your comments, especially the one about Saunders telling his wife that this would be the last move, I got a thought into my head. Innovation is a huge part of the NFL, and with that being said, do you think that there could end up being two head coaches some time in the future (i.e. Gregg Williams- Head Coach of Defense, Al Saunders- Head Coach of Offense). I think this would be a very interesting concept and it could make a very powerful team. Who knows, something like that could revolutionize the NFL...

Well it could be damage control, but A. Saunders was on NFL coach speak right after the presser and he praised Ramsey up and down and said he had the luxery of having two #! QB's in him and Brunell .... said he followed out of college and was interested in getting him??

thats interesting. i mean its almost set up like that now. we have an offense coach who will likely call the plays in saunders. williams we know handles defense. neither wants to leave the area. i said this in another thread but being that saunders likely could have coached elsewhere, maybe he's willing to take "less" money to just be OC. that is an interesting thought and snyder certainly has the dough.

Well in a sense, but if you look at the '85 Bears...They had Ditka and Buddy Ryan. The titles really didn't suggest it, but they were pretty much run like they two head coaches. But ultimately, there needs to one head where the direction, game planning and key personnel issues flow from. One person will always shoulder the responsibilty and be accountable for the success or failure of the team, however.

Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

Heck, it's pretty much set up now where we have, potientially, three head coaches! As long as everybody is on the same page - and I have no doubts they will be - this is going to be great for us! I'll have to watch the presser when I get home. Interesting interpretation concerning Patrick Ramsey.

Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

Saunders is a quality guy, I was very impressed with his introductory press conference. He's going to be a great fit with this team and organization.

Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

And it just makes me more impressed with Gibbs--he saw what the team needed, and went and got his man (and props to Danny for making sure the price was right!). Again and again, we see the press (and some of us, at times ) say that Gibbs doesn't know what's going on in one thing or another--and then Gibbs comes out and proves that he's well aware of the situation, and he's already hard at work to fix things. Let the media say what they want--the guy knows how to win, and how to build a quality organization from top to bottom.

Saunders will fit right in. And I am VERY excited about seeing what he can do for us. Man, it's a good time to be a skins fan!

Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

While I'm not ready to admit super bowl like a lot of commentators are already doing, I am extremely pumped by this signing.

I can hardly wait to see what a top 10 offense paired with a top 10 defense can do.

Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

Saunders seems to have sense of humor:

George Micheal: How does a guy go from London, England to being a football coach?

Al Saunders: We came on a boat.

I really think if Andy Reid pulls a move like going out and getting the two best coordinators he can find and paying them top dollar to do their magic for his team that everyone would hail him as a genius. Not a nary would be said about "too many cooks in the kitchen". People hate the Skins for some reason so I have grown to expect it. Imagine if we had won the SB this year. I can guarantee that one of the more major sentiments we would hear would be something along the lines of "the worst SB winning team ever". It has become comically obvious that these feelings exist. When the leading internet NFL insider for the leading sports broadcasting company in the world says things like "You'll never win a SB with this coach" or "I hate you f%^&ers" it shows just how bad it has gotten.
Every fan feels that their team is getting no respect. Why just the other day some Seahawk fans I know were talking about how the media hates their team and how they don't get good press.

You need to win before you get any positive reviews. Skins deserve to be ragged on IMO simply because of the horrible moves prior to Gibbs coming back.

every year is different in the NFL and if a team makes it to the playoffs, they deserve respect. To say we didn't desrve to be in is total disrespect and BS!

When he was asked about the Personel on the team he talked about Brunell have his best year and a first round draft pick with a lot of tools, no mention of Ramsey at all. I think that is very telling. I am really looking forward to March first to see who we add to this team.

Very telling indeed, here's something along those lines from the WP:

Quote:
Gibbs called quarterbacks Mark Brunell and Jason Campbell to inform them of Saunders's hiring but said he has not talked to Patrick Ramsey, who almost certainly will be traded or released. Saunders referred to both Brunell and Campbell when quickly discussing offensive personnel yesterday, but did not mention Ramsey, a former first-round pick.

Re: Al Saunders Press Conference

I repeat myself like many posts.....Gibbs has always had future or prior HEAD coaches working for him. It all started with Hannifan in the early 80s......the true genius behind the hogs.(if you are reading this Bugel) HI JOE!!! I LOVE YOU.
