I believe that if Snyder drops the hammer on Zorn and Vinny after this year he's going to give whomever comes in full control and autonomy to make all of the football decisions. Even he is smart enough to realize that everybody else has it figured out and he's got to get with the program.

Here's the challenge with the 'Big 3' though:
Cowher-He's very close to Marty, like mentor-mentee (or is it Mento?) close. It'd be really interesting to see if he'd come here after Marty was one and done.

Holmgren-If he comes, that means we just fired his boy Zorn and his system wasn't being run effectively. That's two major strikes to overcome.

Shanahan-He has a strong relationship and strong admiration for Jerry Jones. He's also known to be a bit of a front runner and from a pure talent base a Romo-R. Williams-Witten-Barber/Jones may be more attractive than QB TBD (cause Campbell will be gone if Zorn goes)-Moss-Cooley-Portis. Just some food for thought.
What's Floyd Reese, Charlie Casserly, and that X-tampa Bay guy doing? Did Dan fire CC?

Russ Grimm! Not Cowher! Cowher is old and wouldn't come back for longer than four years anyway. Russ Grimm is young...........well, young enough! and he would know what do do with this power running game that Joe Gibbs built. He would know how to incorporate the downfield pass with it as well.

He would also know, before the season starts, Sellers is a premier full back in this game. He can not only block very well, but he can run and catch the ball too. AND! Get this! Russ would know that a back up center CAN'T BE BLAMED FOR POOR EXECUTION WHEN IT COMES TO BLOCKING SUGGS AT THE TACKLE POSITION!!!

Russ Grimm! We should have hired him for this job! Someone that knows the power running game. Someone that has coaching experience and a superbowl ring as a coach and a player..........Zorn doesn't have one period. And someone that always builds good lineman wherever he goes...........With Pittsburgh it was about run blocking with Arizona its about pass blocking. You name it Russ will bring it!

"We like it so much we're gonna run it again!" - Russ Grimm to Randy White while running 50 gut eight times in a row, which killed the clock and secured the NFC Championship.
"And the Redskins went down there and manhandled them and they basically undressed them and now everybody's been lining up to get a piece of them." - John Riggins on the last game we played in Texas Stadium

Re: Some offseason optimism

I think that the best optimistic thing that I can say about the Skins is that Vinny is close to losing his job. Perhaps the best thing that can happen for this team is to blow it up and bring in a new GM and Wow, Russ Grim that would be nice. It'd be like bringing Joe Gibbs out of retirement. I like Russ and Joe but they couldn't control the players. Seriously, we'll never go anywhere as long as the players know they'll be there longer than the coaches, and Vinny is up there making stupid mistakes taking their side. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think I am.

Re: Some offseason optimism

I think some front office names to watch out for in a couple of years are Ron Hughes of the Steelers and Chris Polian and Tom Telesco of the Colts
