Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

Let me throw in a name of an interesting prospect and with ties to the Redskins.

New Orleans Saints - Pete Carmichael Jr

One year under Marty here, and I am sure he is aware to stay as far away from Danny as possible.

I am not in favor of hiring a guy who is currently not calling the plays to be the Head Coach. If we end up with a True head coach, say Russ Grimm and bring in someone as OC, like Carmichael that will call plays it could work. Keep the defense the same or promote Gray as DC.

Yep, I was just going to post the same thing. She sounded like her sources were pretty reliable too.

Honestly guys, I don't see Gruden, Cowher or Shanahan coming here. Definitely not the latter two.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

Gruden won in Oakland, id say he can win here. We definately need a HC with a sack.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

Honestly, I think Snyder would do good finding the real Jim Zorn. You know, someone beneath the radar, fairly young, but seasoned enough to actually make the next jump to head coach. Obvi Josh McDaniels would have been an ideal choice.

I'm not so caught up on the names out there because you know what, we've had all the big names come here. And the results have been pretty bad.

I don't know if he's ready to be a HC yet, but he has impressive creditials.

Exactly. That's why I like Cameron, Harbaugh (Stanford coach) and Carmichael OC for Saints. Gibbs was an unknown when he was hired by JKC, why can't we do that again instead of bringing in retreads. Holmgren would be the only coach with experience that I would consider.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

I think you can forget DS going under the radar. This is a A-1 first class burn job by JZ and there is no way DS takes a chance on another unproven coach. Period.

I think Harbaugh might not be returning to Stanford next season. His services will probably be available.

You have to figure there will be at least three sure vacancies next year:

Tennessee
Washington
Buffalo

Kelly Johnson said during the post-game that her best Gruden source says Gruden believes the QB carousel he was handed in his final years in Tampa ultimately led to his firing, and he's really only interested in going to a team that has an established starter. I don't know if that situation will present itself for Gruden, but that's certainly not the case here.

Well that counts us out of the running. Some say JC is not starter quality while others say he is. Either way I would have to imagine JC is tired of the crap that goes on here as well as with the front office wanting to trade him so I presume he'll go elsewhere. Leaving us with no real starter.

but the only thing that would entice Gruden to be here would be the fact that DS spends and spends and spends. DS needs to hire a GM who will be frugal with his money. I just don't get why he does not do that. It would mean more money in his pocket. Especailly if they simply use the draft more vs. throwing buckets of money at FA.

and by the way I'm on the fense with Gruden. I think he's funny and entertaining and will set our primadana's straight, but I still think we need a better GM then what we have now. Some one who knows the system the HC is emplimenting in order to get the right players to fill the team with.

M.Schottenheimer(GM)-B.Schottenheimer(HC)
M.Schottenheimer(GM)-B.Cowher(HC)
Holmgren(GM)-Gruden(HC)
Holmgren(GM)-Shanahan(HC)

My choices in order.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

IF DS and VC were to tell Gruden they would draft the QB he wanted then im sure he would think about it. Maybe bring in Garcia who knows the WCO to get us by until the rook was ready.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

If they had kept Marty back in the day, this would have been a natural option by now

M.Schottenheimer(GM)-B.Schottenheimer(HC)
