If they arent preforming up to their contracts then they should go. yes we would be in cap hell for awhile but Cowher went through the same with Pittburgh and they built through the draft and it seemed to work out for the best.

It's amazing how many former Redskins from the 80s/early 90s are in coaching/managerial roles around the league, yet not with the Redskins.

I don't know that Grimm will ever get his opportunity here (or anywhere), too many question marks.

I think we need a coach comfortable enough with himself to delegate responsibility

Sorry for the obvious take but I still think Zorn has what it takes if he just gets his head out of his ass in the RZ.
That's all there is to it if you ask me.

Ahh, thank you!! The only retread I would consider would be Dungy.

And I don't think it's a matter of just fixing the red zone issues because if it's not the red zone issues then it's another issue.

To answer the question of this thread - the type of head coach that the redskins need is/was a young gibbs. Zorn is not as ready as gibbs because zorn didn't prepare like gibbs before becoming a head coach.

Zorn will probably need to block out all of the feedback from fans and the media and focus on what he needs to do in order to get this team to perform at a high level. Hopefully Zorn has a plan and the confidence in that plan to execute it.
If an abject failure like Norv Turner can have a seven year run here in Washington with teams that more often than not showed very little promise, Jim Zorn deserves at least half that amount of time.

What's even more sad to note, if John Cooke had been successful in gaining control of the Redskins, Norv Turner may still be the coach. I vividly remember the words of his father Jack Cooke when he hired Norv, he said at the time Norv would be the last coach he was going to hire, and I'm sure he also at the time was hoping for a little longer life span.

Fans have been clamoring for coaches like Cower, Gruden, Shannahan and others. Cower had a twelve year run in Pittsburg with one SB trophy to show for his efforts. Would Mr. Snyders' impatient blanket spand that period of time without his coveted prize? Gruden's success in Tampa could be largely attributed to his predecessor Tony Dungy who had aready laid the foundation for his work. Shannahan was not the great coach once John Elway left the game.

Mind you, I'm certainly not knocking any of these very good coaches, what I am saying is that a HC must have time to build a solid program. The Redskins knew what they were getting in Zorn when they hired him , basically "on the job training" a coach with no prior coordinating experience at any level, therefore he deserves the benefit of the doubt. If they had higher expectations then they shouldn't have hired a coach so limited in scope. Given the proper time and support, it's my belief Zorn will become a proficient HC.

my rant is over, thanks for listning.....

True but the Steelers were not a good team when Cowher got there and he was taking them to the playoffs, how many AFC Champ games were they in during his tenure? Gruden won the SB with Tampa but he built up oakland before he was traded to the Bucs. Dungy built up Tampa from a laughing stock to a feared team. Shanahan, yeah he had a great QB and that helped him alot so its hard to get a good grade on how he would do now.

Good post...it's funny how many people bitch about Snyder and Cerrato, yet they have the following reactions:

- They want to bring in any offensive lineman from free agency without giving a chance to one of the young players we've been developing (and building through the draft)

- They wanted to offer multiple picks for Sanchez now that they see offensive troubles

- They want to fire their 2nd year coach who still has a .500 record, and after winning a game.

Well, when you put it that way you make it seem so... so... unreasonable. How could that be? We're "knowledgeable fans" here (well, except for irish)!!

You're right about Cower and I wanted to include that important fact in my post. Cower was always on the cusp of winning it all for many of those twelve years. Some think that for a good portion of that stretch he stuck with Cordell Stewart too long. Thanks for raising the issue.

Re: What Type of Head Coach Does This Team Need?

Im going to combine a few of those. I want a young head coach who maybe had a year or two down in college or a former player who was a leader on his team and is strict and in the players face.
