It's a bit surprising if they didn't do that. But if that is the case, it still strikes me as a bit odd that the FPA said it was fine.
Pretty much what the RI is refering to:Redskins Insider - Report: Redskins must interview Gray again

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Ok I'm officially pissed. It was my understanding the Fing NFL informed them the interview was carried out legally. I understand the interview was BS. If I was Gray I wouldn't feel comfortable interviewing for a job that is not vacant and I still work for the man. However "IF" the NFL did say it was ok, how can they decide to change the rules all of a sudden? Pier pressure? Fans and media around the league get to them so they decide to tell DS to conduct another interview? Now that's BS also.

I just wish for once the Fing NFL would get their itshay together and decide the correct answer prior to making a decision. Then you don't have to change it every time.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

ESPN just sent out a text that the Skins plan to fire Zorn tomorrow. I guess for the rest of the country this may be considered breaking news...

Kyle Shanahan for sure, he'll be on board probably at the end of the month
Where does Kubiack fit it?

Apparently they got that from ESPN and ESPN has since backed off those comments. Shannahan should be ready to be announced tomorrow.

I heard on CBS that Kubiak is staying in Houston.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Shananhan, Kyle, and Zimmer sounds like a great mix.

I just find it hard to believe that Zimmer will be here. He is still coaching and is still focused on the bengals job. How can he come here or have thoughts of coming here even as the Bengals have won thier division and are also lookiing to make a playoff run?

The Bengals will not pay him what he's worth. He'll either get a head coach job or come here. Washington is the more liekly scenario.

The Texans finished 9-7 and may make the playoffs, why are we still discussing Kubiak?

To me all the signs, stars, and rumors point to Shanahan. No one else is even mentioned. It would turn DC upside down if Shanahan said no and went elsewhere.

Oh I'm sure some would be estatic like the ones who don't want him at all but since the break we have heard that he might be coming, 2 weeks ago we heard he was rumored to be the next HC, a week ago the contract was signed and Shanahan ready to take over, fans finally somewhat warm to the idea and BAM... he goes elsewhere.

That would be the ultimate suckage.

Well Parcells has done that twice, to Tampa in '92 and to Atlanta in '07.

Rumor was if he lost his last 2 games he would be fired. He won the last 2 games. Rumor is the owner would keep him if he ended well, broke even 8-8, and won the last 2 games.

here's the question. Did Kubiac say he was staying? or was it the owner? It still doesn't mean Kubiac can't quit and be hired by Shanahan. right?

I was kinda hoping we could pick up Alex Gibbs as our OL coach so I guess I was hoping they would fire Kubiac and look for a new HC. It would make our chances greater of picking up Alex Gibbs. If Kubiac stays I can't see us being able to raid their coaching staff. Shanahan won't burn a friend like that.

Re: Report: Shanahan to DC done deal

Shanahan is about as sure a thing as a Antwaan Randle El fair catch. But just like ARE busted out a 43 yard punt return today...there's no telling what might happen with Shanahan.
