In all seriousness, I want Gibbs back. If Gibbs decides to retire, don't expect a great 2008 season as new head coaches often struggle in their first season with a new team. And expect to see JC regress, or not progress, if we replace Saunders and force him to learn a new system.

If we had to get someone else, I'd probably go with Cowher since I like the guy, he likes smash-mouth football and great defenses, and he is a proven winner. That said, several teams will likely be after him and he supposedly wanted to stay out of football until 2009. He could be saying that he doesn't want to return to football in 2008 to gain leverage in contract negotiations, but who knows.
Someone from this site was going to be a poll option, but that would have totally skewed the results.

You know what's funny about your compliments of Cowher, smash-mouth, great defense, proven winner....hmm, who does that sound like?

So if you (not you, but the collective you) complain about the current coach what will you say about Cowher?

Up until recently I would have said I'd love for it to be Grimm. I wish he'd been on our staff the past few years.

However, in recent days I think I've come to the conclusion that while I don't know how good a head coach he'll be Gregg Williams should be the next coach. I know he rubs a lot of people the wrong way at Redskins Park, but for the most part he at least has their respect. And most importantly, he has Gibbs' support.

And the team could benefit from continuity. People hate to hear it, but it's true...we are so close.

As for other candidates, I've always liked Bruce Arians

I'm not sure about Grimm either. No head coaching experience, and he's spent a lot of his time with Cowher anyway, so he's molded in that style as well. So if we say Grimm, why not just say Cowher?

I agree to an extent with the continuity. I think if Gibbs does step down he will stay on as team prez, in which case I would be surprised if it wasn't G.Williams.

If Snyder goes after Cowher people may say, "here we go again, Danny looking for the big name, super expensive big splash." That said, I still think Cowher would do well.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I gota go with GW. He is going to bring continuity with this team and he already has a rapport with the players

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I think GW should be the next coach! When this happens the Redskins insure that the team will not have to learn a new offense, or learn a new defense...just learn to close out games that have eluded us for the past 7 or so years.

Coach Gibbs will and will always be the savior of D.C. and will continue to fight for the organization but in another capacity other than coach

I noticed the irony when I wrote it. Pretty funny huh.

I obviously have a lot of love for Grimm. But, I don't know what he's like as a coach. I've heard good things, but not enough to make me feel very confident in him. I haven't heard anything bad, but I haven't heard that much.

I would prefer either Grimm or Mike Singletary.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I voted 'Other'. I would like to see an unknown take the reins, much like Gibbs and Cowher did. We need a gutsy, innovative guy that will stay up all night trying to figure out the best way to win each week. Also, one who isn't worried about current player relationships. This will allow the new coach to bench or get rid of any player regardless of who it is. I want a guy who makes every member of the team from the coaching staff to the players afraid for their jobs.

Bottom line: If "he's" hungry, then I want him coaching the team.

Mike Singletary, nice choice. I thought I heard he was a head coaching candidate at some college though.

Baylor maybe?

Great points about Grimm.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

It hard to say who be be a better head coach, without know knowing how they would assemble their staff. For instance If Cower took the Job, he'd probably call the defense, but who would be his OC? If Grimm or Cower took the job GWill would more than likely be gone. I believe that if Gibbs leaves and GWill does not get the job, we give him another Million from the Snyd. Its a tough call, but some level of change may be required.

I had never thought of Singletary, but he's universally respected. I do want to see Gregg Williams get his shot here. He remained loyal to Gibbs when he could have left for a head coaching job after his first year here.
