Byner says goodbye to DC.

EB did a really good job here. IMO he was treated like crap on the way out, deserved much better.

Wish him the very best! CLASS ACT

Good luck to him.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

You have to wonder what it is or was about him that put the organization off? When everybody else got 3 year extensions after the 05 season and he was only offered a 2 year deal, well, you have to think Gibbs could have gotten him what he wanted but didn't right? I mean, he was the guy calling the shots and pulling the strings on the coaches.

JLC obviously loves Ernest for no small reason because he's nice to him and gives him info. Seems like the four horses have a lot of respect for him too. I know I love the guy and the fans do too. Just would love to hear the brass's explanation of why Ernest was treated differently by an organization that is not generally criticized for its treatment of coaches.

That's rough that we treated the man like that. He played and coached his guts out for the B&G. Best of luck EB.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

Ernest Byner was a great R.B for us and a great coach. I wish him only the best.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

"What we were looking for was a coach with characteristics. And our characteristics were starting with character, a character person. Joe [Gibbs] has such character and I've learned so much not only about him, but about what I and the Redskins want in the future."

Glad Snyder at least looks for character in others, not so sure he'd be able to spot it though ... But JLC is probably just bashing Snyder, you know how those media types can be ...

And I know he provided the plane to Todd Collins and I know he flew the whole organization to Miami, but damn. Hard to know how to take these kind of stories. To show up, with the expectation of signing a contract that was on the table and then be told not so fast. If he really did turn down the TB job, or at least take his name out of the running, that is such a giant kick in the groin.

I honestly do wonder what the 'other side of the story' is and why his contract was treated differently than everyone else's. Obviously something was up, someone didn't like him, or didn't think much of his coaching, or something. The immediate circumstances suck, and seem on their face pretty abhorrent, but I wonder why the situation even existed in the first place (why the shorter contract, etc.). Any insights?

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

When I hear crap like that it makes me not even want to root for this team. Byner was a true Redskin and to have him treated like that makes me dislike Snyder and Vinny even more than I already do. Very classless IMO.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

I wish good luck to him elsewhere, he did a great job while he was here with Portis and Betts. It's sad to see some things end like this but it's the nature of the business.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

Yeah there's gotta be more to this story. I mean seriously, you don't treat a real good coach this way. Maybe the RBs complained about something alot, maybe he beat the s#!t out of DS at racquetball, maybe he was suspected of being the mysterious 'anonymous team source' by the front office. who's to say, I just cant imagine doing this to what appears to be a great man and coach. There has to be more to this story, and well probably never ever know for sure.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

Well, I think we all think he was a great coach, and Gotta say he did a good job with Betts, although his fumbling issues were in the limelight constantly. All that being said, I'm not so sure another RB coach couldn't produce the same if not better numbers.
I am the type of person that appreciates dedication and devotion to a team, and Byner loved us, and I loved Byner. He will be missed here. I didn't think we would need to find another RB coach, and I am not happy by how it went down, but I'm sure we will land on our feet with this.
But still, I wish him the best.

Re: Byner says goodbye to DC.

I can't comprehend how someone like DS who claims to have been a huge Redskins fan growing up, treat Byner this low. They could have treated this with more dignity especially with his story as a player and coach for the skins. I know people will say "it's business", to me that's BS. This is our corporate America society attitude and I hate it.

I really don't get why they let him go. Does anyone have any real reasons for this? I don't think it's because Zorn wanted to surround himself with friends, there has to be something else. He did not do a bad job at all. It's not right how we treated him.
