Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I wanted to pick Gregg for obvious reasons, but if it ain't broke....Bill will bring a more hard nosed approach to the team. Gibbs is kinda laid back, and let's the players set the tempo. I will welcome anyone on the current coaching staff, except for Al. Don't like him, never have never will.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I voted for other but I dont have a name. I want the Skins to find the next Mike Tomlin or some other young coach that can establish his system and stay awhile if it workd.

Cowher would never work with this team as they are now too used to Gibbs easy-going, we are all family ways. He's too loud and too harsh on the players. He would never work with these guys.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

A new coach will bring in his own players over time anyway, so you can't make a coaching decision based on your current roster.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

cowher is not the answer. He won his superbowl, now he wants to be with his family. We need a young innovative hungry coach....who really has the time to invest into this team, and the drive to take us to the superbowl. Paying a coach who doesnt wanna come back billions of dollars is not gonna "make him wanna come back" it's just gonna make him want the money.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

We should stick with Grilliams if gibb's leaves, but keep him on a short leash, kindof an interim coach....he he has immediate success stick with him.

Who says that Cowher doesn't want to come back though?

I think he's just enjoying his time off right now and he can afford to sit back and wait for the perfect opportunity to come along. I'm sure he probably has a few jobs in mind. He still has plenty of quality coaching years left in him. I don't see him taking a long break.

I think the whole "innovative" thing is somewhat overrated. I'd be happy with running the counter tre every other play if we were getting first downs and finishing drives with touchdowns. Whoever can motivate these players to execute up to their ability is who I want to coach. I think that's still Joe Gibbs. I think this 2nd time around has been tough but I truly believe that we are going to be a very strong team next year. I want one more year of Gibbs 2.0 before I'm ready to throw in the towel on a HOF coach who has the players' respect.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I voted for Grimm, and I disagree with comments about innovation, he is only a coordinator in Arizona, not the head coach. I don't recall Arizona being overly conservative with WRs such as Anquan Boldin (spelling) and Larry Fitzgerald. I think Grimm would bring the toughness you would expect of a Redskins team, and new ideas due to his time spent in Pittsburgh and Arizona. I don't like the idea of a retread coach. I think Wade Phillips is an exception just because of the vast amount of talent stashed on that team by the Tuna, just wait until Jerry Jones gets back into the thick of things in terms of draft picks and FAs. I suspect Romo was a Parcells pick, not a J. Jones pick.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

The current staff has not done much at all. GW did nothing in his first tenure as a Head Coach. My first choice would be Grimm... he is a Redskin who has a great coaching line. If we don't go with Grimm, then you have to go with a proven winner year in and year out... that means Cowher.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I've never understood why some people are so on Grimm's nuts. Is it just because he's a beloved former player??

You can say that about plenty of guys, most notably Bill Belichick.

Hell, if Norv gets chance after chance I don't see why GW shouldn't get a 2nd shot.

That and his apprenticeship as a player under a HOF in Gibbs and as a coach under a potential HOF in Cowher

Actually, I will disagree with you on Belichick.... He actually had the Browns in the play offs the year before.... but after I believe like 5 games, Modell announced the move... and everything fell apart.

Belichick also had alot of success before and AFTER as a coordinator... GW is hot and cold with us.

Partly - YES... but he also has had the right experience as a coach... he is due to be a head coach... why not with us.

Re: If Not Joe, Then Who?

I think Gregg Williams could really pull this team together. He's got the defense ready to go all year and now he knows a little bit about how to motivate guys and get their heads in the game.
