Yeah he really does like Tebow a lot. I'm still unsure on Tebow. He's not a conventional QB, but so what maybe he's got "it" Probably not my top choice though

He plays with a passion that I rarely see. Maybe Gruden and Tebow can light a fire under this team. Haha, just trying to stay positive.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

Somehow it still feels like the offseason around here. I think that's the culture that Snyder has fostered that instead of looking to the next game, we're looking towards the next press conference.

In the past 10 days 'sources' have said that Shanahan, Gruden and Holmgren are all done deals. 'Sources' have said that Ceratto will be promoted/demoted and that he will be left in place. 'Sources' have said that Shanahan would work with Vinny and won't work with Vinny.

Anyone else exhausted? I think the anticipation and rumors are more exasperating than the games! I hadn't been this engrossed in Redskins drama since the Cutler/Sanchez days.

Probably not my first choice either, and definitely needs a lot of polish if he wants to be a successful NFL QB, but Gruden is great with quarterbacks...

Tebow's big toe has more intangibles than Jason Campbell.

I like to watch games just to see where we go wrong. Things are looking up though, Jim Zorn said that we are getting close....

Jim Zorn also said we're an improving team right after we lost to Detroit. Fail.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

I can't belive some of you are even talking about Tebow being our next QB. What a joke. Do any of you honestly think he's got the talent to be an NFL passer? C'mon!!! Stop the nonsense.

What I'm saying is, Gruden will get his players, Synder has relented in the past.
Absolutely agree. Arguably that's one of Snyder's/the Front Office's biggest weaknesses. Greg Blache you want Adam Archuleta? Here you go. Al Saunders you want Brandon Lloyd? No problem we'll get it done. Joe Gibbs you need TJ Duckett? Take him. There's not enough "no"

I think he has the talent to be an NFL player, full-time QB I'm not sure. I think people dismiss him because he's unconventional but it could work. Again, he's not my top choice if we were to draft a QB.

Do you think that if the NFL gave us all 96 timeouts that we get for the year in week one that we would use them all by week 9?

and then there's "oooh this guy is awesome we need him" like the AH deal, now AH is arguably the best guy at his position, but why not bring in someone like Canty and then spread some of that money around? God forbid a starter get hurt because there's nobody behind them that's starting quality. Look at the giants line, they've got enough for 2 formidable squads.. so you don't lose the whole group if one guy gets hurt -- plus you have some bait to dangle when somebody wants to trade for a great player

despite the highest money spent on the roster, nobody wants our guys except maybe cooley.. nobody else is worth taking the contract of, we need to look at how we do that while we're speaking of FO inadequacies.. it gets us by year to year but holds us back big time, you can't trade for picks, you have to wait 2 years to cut a guy that you couldn't even get a 7th round pick for, etc

Every QB is a crapshoot coming out of college really. For every Ben Roethlisberger, there's an Alex Smith. You just never know.

Tebow is a leader, a physical specimen, and can sling the ball. He may not have a pretty delivery, but just because Kiper and McShay aren't sold on him doesn't mean he won't be any good. He's certainly not the "joke" you think he is. Chad Bradford is a fragile statue, and I'm not so sure about Colt McCoy either. If I had to guess, I'd say Tony Pike will be the best pro QB out of the current senior class. Case Keenum is pretty darn good too, but he's a junior.

Heck...who thought we'd be respected again after Danny's clowns with Spurriers gators.
All it took was a half a season without Gibbs to have everything start to collapse again.

I really think a lot of you have underestimated how well Gibbs did under the circumstances....to me....if the best Gibbs could do is win a playoff game...thats as good as is possible under the current management.

The only person that could do as well or better would be Parcells...and he aint going anywhere....and to be honest...I don't like him.
I am pretty worried about the next 3-4 years unless something major is changed...and I am not just talking about a new coach
It's funny, weren't a lot of saying Gibbs must go when he was here? Well this what you got, enjoy.
