Re: Would You Want Cowher To Replace Gibbs?

Cowher gets too angry and frustrated to deal with the skins organization, he wouldnt be able to deal with snyder, just like shottenheimer

I don't think Cowher has ever said he's going to "retire". In fact, he hasn't said anything yet.

But all along the word has been that he's ready for some time off. Not that he's calling it a career.

Re: Would You Want Cowher To Replace Gibbs?

One more thing, I liked Russ Grimm, and according to many accounts, he's a great coach. But aren't we falling into a trap when all we do is yearn for the nostalgia of the glory years in Washington?

I mean here we are, three years after the return of Joe Gibbs. I was on cloud nine when he came back -- I thought, FINALLY! -- the white knight has arrived to right the ship and bring the franchise back from darkness. Well, here we are. 6-10 the first year, a last ditch rescue of the '05 season (where we were headed for disaster), and 5-11 in year 3.

At some point, we have to let go of the past. Let's stop writing checks on an account that has long been closed. If Gibbs couldn't salvage this wreck of a franchise, how can Grimm do it?

Re: Would You Want Cowher To Replace Gibbs?

First I want Gibbs to complete tenure #2 before I even think about another coach, and there's no telling where Cower will be when that happens. I would say "no" to him anyway because there's no way he and Snyder could coexist.
Second, we need a GM to hire a coach, as long as Snyder is hiring coaches, we have reason to be skeptical, his track record has not produced much thus far.
Third, we need to consider a bright young mind with a future in coaching, not some retread whose coaching skills have already been left on the field at some other team's expense. We need to do like the Jets, New Orleans, Chicago have done, hire a young coach with a future, and if successful, will limit the need for change every three years.

Well I think it's as much to do with him being a solid coach as it is his history with the Redskins. I wish Gibbs had some hotshot young prospect on his staff that could inherit the throne so to speak. But the Gibbs' coaching tree is more like a twig unfortunately.

Regardless, I want Grimm to get a shot at being head coach once and for all. I think he deserves a shot now, especially with all the openings we might see.

Re: Would You Want Cowher To Replace Gibbs?

Cowher is a great coach. His philosophy is a little bit different from the skins. Like for example, building a team from the draft, being a young defensive team, doesn't sign to many FA's, is good at evaluating talented players, etc. Year in and year out they compete for the SB. They don't always win but every year the Steelers have a legit shot at it. That's the kind of organization to model.

The Steelers are owned by the Rooney family, one long rooted in the NFL with both history and tradition on their side. The Redskins are owned by Daniel Snyder...........I rest my case.

Re: Would You Want Cowher To Replace Gibbs?

Not to hijack this thread but suppose you could choose (in a couple of years) between Fisher and Cowher, who would you take?

I think Fisher would be a better fit for this team, this town. I have a feeling Cower is closer to burn-out.

You people just make me want to knock my head against the wall! Fire Gibbs, are you kidding me???? You are the most unpatient people in the world!!! Why don't you people take a deep breath, okay. Have a little faith in a man who's been to the promised land three times and to the second round of the playoffs last year! This year was bad but let's have a little faith here folks!! Cowher is a very good coach, but he's no Joe Gibbs! Now if you say Cowher could take over for Gibbs once he retires again, then it might be a thought then. As far as I'm concerned Gibbs can stay with the Redskins for life, he's darn well earned it!!! I guess most of you people are either too young are too stupid to remember or realize what a darn good coach he is!!

Re: Would You Want Cowher To Replace Gibbs?

Many of you are missing the point: Cowher figures to take a couple years off and return to the NFL, likely to a team that will pay him more than the Steelers.

The timing coincides with Gibbs, who figures to coach the Skins for 2 more years.

As for Fisher vs. Cowher, I don't see Fisher being available given that he just re-upped his contract after an amazing year with Vince Young. Fisher is a great coach and a great guy, but Cowher understands "Redskin football" to the bone. Who does Jerome Bettis remind you of? Exactly.

I've heard Cowher express his respect for Gibbs in the past. Also Wisenhunt and obviously Grimm hail from the first Gibbs era. They have very similiar philosophies.

Is Paul McCartney as good today as he was with the Beatles? Was George Lucas' Episodes I, II, and III as good as IV, V, and VI ?

Sometimes, people get spent. They don't stay great forever.

I am not quitting on Joe Gibbs, and I'm not calling for him to step down. And he might, in fact, lead this team to consistent playoff contention.

But that clock is winding down.

Valid point. I think Gibbs has a little more character than a couple of hippie entertainers though!
