I bet they will upset USC when they play later this year.
Damn this whole time i never really paid attention but i got john & jim mixed up that was a semi-blonde jessica simpson moment.

Re: I wish we hired Gregg Williams as our coach.

Maybe Williams is just a good coordinator, that doesn't necessarily make him a good head coach. Maybe he'll have a good second stint as a head coach. But he could also falter again. He has alienated management in more than just Washington, and he seems to be best suited to focus singularly on one unit and have someone else oversee everything and be a buffer between him and management.

How did he piss off management here? Was it the first play of the Buffalo game after #21 passed?

I don't think that one incident was as big a deal as it was made out to be. It's more that he just has a "rough around the edges" personality. There were some pretty ugly rumors about his time in Buffalo. Domestic stuff, but nothing ever verified so it probably was just ugly rumors

Not really, the score of the first game was misleading. They gave up 27 to Detroit, but that was mostly off of turnovers/big plays in special teams. They were really only victimized once by a big Calvin Johnson play. Other than that, the D looked good.

The Philly game wasn't great, but they forced a few turnovers and scored defensively on a long INT return by Sharper. They had 3 INTs of Kolb that game.

Last week, they held Buffalo to just 7 points.

And then, this happened yesterday. The defense hasn't been amazing, but considering what the Saints had been, it's pretty damn good.

I'm of the opinion that Gregg Williams is good at doing "more with less" and can scheme his way to having a good defense. I think when you don't have a bunch of superstars it's easier to create pressure with different blitz packages because the opponents can't really key on guys and that's what's working really well in NOLA right now. It almost looks like he's running a 3-4 down there with guys coming from everywhere and others dropping into coverage. The Saints D looks very confusing right now.

Williams has a stronger track-record than anyone on our staff, period.

That said, and it's certainly obvious by now I'm a big fan and totally believed he deserved the HC job here, I'm very happy he landed where he did. I think he'll acquire a SB ring within a year or two and that wouldn't likely have happened coaching in D.C.
good post. I was also hoping he got the gig here. I know much has been made of his 'ego' but he learned from observing Gibbs & would've been able to grow as a head coach here if the Danny let him.

Even if true, that was in buffalo, and he is owed some leeway for his past. Like anyone, I would think he's learned & matured in the biz. What really did he too to alienate the skins mgmt.?

I'd say it's pretty telling that since 2004 when he became our DC he's never been considered a serious candidate for a head coaching position anywhere else. You don't have to be touchy-feely to be a head coach in the league but apparently being a complete prick isn't the way to get it done either.

After I believe the 05 season he had an excellent shot to get either the St. Louis, Houston, or Kansas City job, but ended up getting a comparable amount of money to stay on as DC with us. He was definitely considered seriously by those teams.

Re: I wish we hired Gregg Williams as our coach.

I totally agree with this post, the way he has been coaching lately is just remarkable. Makes me just wonder, what in the hell is blache doing? We have some of the best pass rushers in the league and we can barely get the blitz game going.

I don't have specific examples in front of me.

But in the case of management here, I should clarify that I'm really talking about Cerrato (not Snyder). And many would say this is another reason Cerrato has to go, because it was really Cerrato who showed Gregg Williams the door and kept Fassel away too. Two strong head coaching candidates. Particularly the latter, in my opinion. Still though, there's no reason to believe Williams will be a successful head coach given another opportunity. Just the hope.

I kinda figured VC would've been the one that butted heads w/him. One thing GW has going for him on his resume is that his only job was in buffalo. That's been one tough place to win since the advent of unrestricted free agency. Since we beat them in the super bowl, both teams fell off & have been stuck in mediocrity.

That's entirely possible. See Norv Turner.

Hey cowboys fan!! Well he might or might not have been liked by Cerrato but Snyder makes the decision. I just see Williams as someone who is strong willed and not passive and that is something that probably would and had caused him to bump heads with upper mgmt. He was brash and blunt. Didn't bite his tongue and DS wants someone who will speak when spoken to and not give their opinion on FO matters. Tht's probably why he didn't work. Danny had promised him th eposition if Gibbs didn't work out or that he woudl atleast take him into serious consideration. But he didn't thus we are where we are. Blache needs to tune down his ego which he did the past week and go back to what works and stop thinking he is a defensive genius. Disguise blitzes, bring more of them and use your personnel better, which he did last game.
