I'm curious, what did you expect to happen when Gibbs resigned? Did you think nothing would change? A coordinator would step right in and keep the status quo? I'm sorry but changes were inevitable, and I think Snyder is making the best of a situation he wasn't prepared to face this offseason.

Chaos? I don't see chaos. I see a methodical approach to do what's best for the team, and I believe they'll be even better next year.


Help us Steve Marriucci . . . You're our only hope! LOL

I agree that there was gonna be change, and at first I was impressed with Snyder's patience, but now I'm not so sure. I mean the man has thrown around offers to a couple of retreads, allowed the fans to influence his HC decision, and sabotaged and legitimate chance to hire anyone but Fassel because of the hiring of his coordinators. On top of that, there doesn't seem to be a clear plan in place in what they are looking for; looking at a DC coordinator who runs a 3-4. Now there are rumors leaking that Danny and Vinny are chomping at the bits for Chad Johnson, and have even brought it up in the interviews!!

I am becoming less optimistic about this by the minute. I'd like to give DS the benefit of the doubt, but Im not sure he has earned that. His past, and the lack of methodology to his approach, makes me feel incredibly apprehensive about the next coaching era.

Why is Mooch better than Fassel? Answer, he's not

Fassel is a coach desperate for a HC job in the NFL. What he brings to Snyderato is a coach that will bend to all their demands, which is what they are lookng for.
IMO Gregg Williams was removed from consideration because he did not agee with what Snyer wanted. He wanted to run his own ship. Which is what any good HC candiate would want. I still believe the main sticking points between Williams and Snyer was GM, William does not like Cerrato and who would be offensive coordinator.
We will see what ends up happening. Maybe Snyder will build a Superbowl contender. But as long as Snyder and Cerratto call all the shots, I say it is unlikely.

Re: After Mooch interview, John Clayton still predicts Fassel

I know this sounds crazy but do you think it is possible that Fassel would get the job for a year, after that he would be released so the Skins could pursue Cowher? I think it would be far easier to get rid of Fassel than Mooch. The majority of Skins fans are already ready for Fassel to be fired after next season.

Re: After Mooch interview, John Clayton still predicts Fassel

I am not so sure Cowher would wnat to be the Skins HC under these conditions. I am not so sure Cowher would want to be told who his coordinators are and not have a say in who is in the FO. Danny Boy made his bed with Cerrato...

Why would that be,the assumption Cowher would come here kills me.If the Carolina Job is open there is a 125% chance he'll go there.Lets not forget people are taking themselves 'off' the Skins list for reasons not told.

Re: After Mooch interview, John Clayton still predicts Fassel

As I said before IMO Fossil is already the coach. Snyder is stringing this along to let the fans chill out and accept the idea of Fossil as head coach...or at least take the edge off the anger. They keep interviewing to make it look like they are undecided. It's all a hoax...they found out fans like Mooch so they interview him to shut us up. That's all this is...

First off I am not a big Cowher fan, but he was underpaid for most of his career in Pittsburgh. He is going where he can get money and control. Carolina would not outbid Snyder and snyder could offer him the same final say that Gibbs has and he would take the job. Time and time again we hear this person won't work with Snyder and it's proven wrong...Cowher's next job is all about the green. That's why he left Pitt...this stuff about a break is nonsense...sure he's taking a break but when he comes back he wants his payday.

Re: After Mooch interview, John Clayton still predicts Fassel

Who really cares. There's not much difference between Fassel and Mooch. It's almost comical that people are so against Fassel. I almost want to see him get it now just to piss people off.

Coming back from a large deficit in the playoffs (I think 2002) and beating the Giants seals the deal for me. I've seen them coach quite a bit living in SF and I'm sure Oakland Red also has seen Mariucci coach. MOOCH, MOOCH!!!

I admit I was (and still am - for what it's worth) opposed to Fassel over GW.

But, as time passes and inevitability increases, I am not jumping on the Fassel hate train. The man has been to the Super Bowl. If/when he's named coach, I'll root for the Skins and hope they do well. Fassel will be okay. As for all the haters, let's hope you all have a huge "mea culpa" at the end of the season.

Sometimes I think the hate at Fassel is just fan reaction to Little Danny and the Evil Dwarf and bears no relation to Fassel's coaching abilities.

I have seen him coach, and I used to strongly dislike the 49ers, but when he became the coach, after awhile I saw a team that in spirit reminded me of Joe Gibbs' Redskins in some ways. And I found myself pulling for them when it didn't affect the Redskins.

Mariucci is a special coach.

I'm sure Jim Fassel is a fine man. We need someone with a special capacity for inspiration given the upheavel.

As far as what I would have expected, I would have expected we stay with the same offensive system, to allow the team to continue its definite progress with Al Saunders' approach, and I expected we would make a real run at the Super Bowl next season.

I expected that Gregg Williams would have a chance to coach the team and, with his strong and positive relationship with the players, take the team to the next level, building on the strong foundation that Joe Gibbs left.

I would not have expected that we tear up the offensive structure, going from a number based system (Coryell/Gibbs) to a word based system (Brown/Walsh) and expect the team to learn an entirely new football language, a team, further, whose players have not only been playing in the current general system for a long time, Saunders' version of it for two years, but whose talents would seem to best fit the current system.

I would not have expected the team be torn up right after the beautiful way that everyone came together to honor Sean Taylor, coming through the tragedy with a grace and grit that no team has ever shown in the face of such sadness. And Gregg Williams was a very big part of that.

Fortunately Rex Ryan was not available, or we would not have Greg Blache as defensive coordinator, who will give the team continuity with the system on defense.

Those are some of the things I expected.
