Problem is the fans. If we are truly upset with ownership, why do we keep buying the product? Boycott.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

I'm a big fan of Gruden, he's a great motivator, he loves to run the ball, he's a true student of the game, and he would be a good transition from Zorn to his WC based offense. However, to state the obvious something needs to change upstairs to have any lasting impact from who is coaching the team. Until then, who cares.

I've been in boycott mode for the last 3-4 yrs. I don't have season ticket so thats a no brainer. I want to buy a new hat so bad or a Jersey but I am not until this whole mess is fixed and the Skins are a respectable team again, not a team that people circle on their calender every year cause they count it as a win.

I'm leaning toward picking up a Capitals Jersey. I know they have been having their fair share of problems winning games but you can honestly say they look good for the most part and have gone the "Rebuild" mode already and are on the upswing. Plus 2-3 losses don't matter when you playing 80 something games.

Hopefully the Nats will do something with their 1st round pick.

and hopefully the Wizards will atleast show up in their games this yr with a new HC and Scheme.

Short answer:

Vinny ain't gonna get fired here.


Until and unless Vinny is convicted of a felony and suspended by the NFL Commish, he and Danny Boy will stay tight.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

Maybe those who have already paid for their season tickets and are not going to sit at home for one game cause they paid for it could find something to do as a small sign of protest. Maybe wear brown paper bags over their heads for a quarter. That may not be feasable but you catch my drift. Take signs that say fire Vinny or something. I have to imagine that the media will pick up on it and show it all over ESPN or the news papers and drive DS crazy.

Maybe purchase "Chucky" dolls and wave them at the next game.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

I'm doing my part. I haven't been to a Redskins....home game in 10 years. What the hell is wrong with the rest of you?

I just heard on ESPN 980 (in DC) that John Gruden appears to be the front runner for the Skins new Head Coach. They are referring to as it is a done deal. That must make JZ feel...GOOD

LOL. Then maybe we need the same people who ran the sting against Marion Barry to assist.

Sounds good to me....most likely they are reading what the media is saying. but if not then can I ask who the front runner for the GM job is? LOL.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

From what that dc examiner article states about Gruden, it kinda scares me. If he truly wants an owner who'll spend $, then we're right back where we were 10 years ago. Of course the saving grace might be the economy, even the danny has to watch his spending, cap or not.

The guy couldn't even develop a QB or pick one while in Tampa. He had 5 at one time and rotated them all, cause they sucked. What do you think he'll do here? He's over rated just like Cowher and Shanahan, the only former coach I would consider is Holmgren.

What he'll do here is get the guy he wants with Snyder's bucks. In Tampa they didn't spend the money he felt they should have in order to win.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

I hope Gruden doesn't come here. He had some terrible offenses at TB that were constantly running dink and dunk crap, couldn't settle on a QB. Plus he got fired for not being able to communicate with the players. Then after he got fired all his dirty laundry came out, the players were just ripping him to pieces. IMO he sounds like an asshole. No thanks. There are plenty of guys out there that would be better than Gruden. But the first thing Snyder needs to do is hire a competent GM and let him make the hire... but that's not going to happen.

Re: Sources: Gruden the front runner

Since Snyderrato isn't going anywhere I am only for the Gruden thing if they blow up the roster, otherwise they are just running in place. It will be a different year with the same sad story.

why would gruden come to skins when we've proven our model to be a recipe for failure? i know it comes down to the money, but really, why would anyone (smart) come here without a change in the management structure?

Can we arrange to have compromising photos of Vinny with a sheep sent to the Washington Post?
