Re: Spagnuolo is looking good (Defense)

Don't know about the Spags logic here...He just won a SB as the DC but I don't know that he can handle a HC job. Plus we already have continuity on Defense with Blache...WHy do we want another defensive guy coming in and messing with things? Why not get an offensive guy, who will work with Zorn (who is himself inexperienced)? Mooch is starting to shakeout as my favorite candidate...Besides, he is worth it for his "Mic'd up" segments on the sideline when he is yelling at refs and shouting to players, jk. But seriously the guy deserves his own show for those sound bites.

Re: Welcome Home Spags!!!

After watching the G-Men defense come together this year... shut down the Cowboys and Pack on the road... make the Patriots offense look weak. My pick is officially Spags.

Absolutely, but to do so we need defensive coaches who would put pressure on the FO to actually draft a monster DE. For years, the Skins have been in love with drafting secondary and LB's, completely forgoing d-line.

Re: Welcome Home Spags!!!

I'll give you guys the Giants line is much better then ours, but....donít you feel that our LB's, and secondary are better. What I'm getting at with Spagís is that he will have better talent in two other departments + we are just stupid if we donít draft D-End with our first pick this year. I could go Moch or Spags at this point, but itís hard to decide as we have absolutly 0 insights into who wanted the coordinators that we have already hired.

Re: Welcome Home Spags!!!

LOL Spags is the flavor of the day.

I think he did a great job with the Giants D but I'm not so sure I'd want to crown him just yet.

I think Fassel will be the guy.

Re: Welcome Home Spags!!!

I am not ready to crown Spags as HC...like most here agree he did a great job in the Super Bowl but what we all saw was a good old fashion domination by the D-Line! Plain and simply the DE's got to Brady...and when that happens your holes in the secondary are covered up...Lets take note for the draft!

Re: Welcome Home Spags!!!

I heard on ESPN Radio this morning that Spags is scheduled to meet with Dan Snyder about the head coaching position in Washington.

Who better to coach in the most talented and dominate division in the NFC, than a coach with several years experience (Philly and NYG) coaching against that division?

Spags is an excellent candidate.

Im down with Spags or Mooch, and wouldn't be completely disappointed with Fassel. But you can't give a cool nickname to him. . . sooo

Re: Spagnuolo is looking good (Defense)

While I agree that 1 year as a DC doesn't make a coach, from all reports the guy is pretty impressive. He spent 7 years (i believe, w/out looking it up) working as a position coach under Jim Johnson (Eagles). So, it's not as if he's a newbie. So i wouldn't be that upset.

Now, why would we bring him in when we already have a DC in Blache? Maybe Spags has a problem w/ it and Danny Boy would just let Blache have a DC title for kicks-like last year. I just don't know anymore.

That part doesn't make much sense to me either. You would think that Spags would be heavily involved with the D if he came here, and with Blache I'm not sure he would be very happy to have a hands on HC. Unless their defensive philosophies are similar... which I really don't know.

Yep. Last D-lineman picked in the first three rounds of the draft by Washington?

Kenard Lang - 1997. The Redskins have never been a team that has put much of an emphasis on drafting high for D-linemen.

I find it funny how everyone thinks Spagnuolo has some magic defensive plan or something. What he has is 3 guys that can simply get after the passer. Actually 4 but Mathias K. is hurt. IMO the GM should be getting the credit. Where did Justin Tuck come from?? NE's O-line just got beat down all night long. Man on man. Plus some nobody came off the bench and got a sack at the end of the game. Nothing fancy about it. But everyone on here is going to think this guy is something special. Let's see how good his defense is when Daniels is rushing the passer. It always comes down to personel people. We're set with the defensive coaches.

You do realize that Spags would no longer have the luxury of having ends like Strahan, Umenyora, Tuck and Kiwanuka, right?

How do you think he will fare with the likes of Philip Daniels, Andre Carter, Demetric Evans and Chris Wilson?

Unless Lil' Danny doesn't care who the new coach wants as a D-coordinator.

Well it really wouldn't matter what Snyder wants, the decision would have to come from Spagnuolo as to whether he would be comfortable with that setup or not. Or maybe he's already approved the setup. Who knows?
