Just curious -- if Haslett is fired, who do you want to see replace him?

Todd Bowles. I would give him a chance.

Re: Week 15: Redskins vs Cowboys Gameday thread

Having scored touchdowns on 3 consecutive possessions in the 2nd half to tie the score, the Redskins got the ball back from the Cowboys at their own 4 yardline with 4:46 to play. The Redskins had ALL the momentum

They also had the QB who "knew the two-minute offense" well and who had "adequate cardio-vascular conditioning". [Remember, that was why he went into the Detroit game with less than spectacular results about 6 weeks ago.] They needed to drive the field for a score to win.

Six plays later - after sacks - the Skins had to punt from their 8 yardline (net movement = 4 yards) and the Cowboys got the ball on their own 48 yardline with 3:11 to play. [Was anyone confident that the defense would keep Dallas out of field goal range at that point? I certainly was not.]

After the field goal put Dallas up by 3 points, the Redskins got the ball back at their 20 with 50 seconds to play - - but with no timeouts because those were correctly used on defense to preserve time on the clock.

The Skins needed about 50 yards to have a fair shot at a field goal to tie the game. Let's just say it didn't happen.

When the game came down to what Al McGuire always called "winning time" - - final 5 minutes and the score is tied - - the offense sputtered and the defense gave up enough yards to give up a score.

The game was close; the game was exciting to watch. But in the end, this was the same result we have seen from the Redskins for the past couple of years. Key offensive drives don't go anywhere; key defensive stops are rarely made.

The only difference between yesterday's final five minutes and the final five minutes of a close game coached by Jim Zorn last year was that Zorn had a special consultant calling the offensive plays from up in the pressbox and Mike Shanahan did not.

If Haslett were to be fired Wade Phillips would be a really good option to run our Defense.

Todd Bowles huh? That wouldn't be yet another emotional reach back to a bygone era for nothing other than nostalgia's sake would it?

Oh really? Also there's Jim Mora Jr. if you don't like Bowles.

Re: Week 15: Redskins vs Cowboys Gameday thread

Okay, pretty nice resume. But the fact that he was a Redskin under Joe Gibbs during the glory years has nothing to do with wanting him to coach here?

I'm just sick of hearing the name of every former Redskin who happens to be coaching somewhere as a candidate to come here, -- as if coming back would somehow re-create the magic of the 1980's in Washington. It's like writing checks on a bank account that has long since closed.

No that has nothing to do with it, he has been mentioned as a darkhorse candidate as a HC. His resume speaks for itself.

He has been, but would you have thought of him if not for his Skins past?

Yes and no. The fact that he has gained his coaching experience under Parcells and Sparano and is a solid coach is what's appealing. I guess the same could be said about McCardell whom I don't recall having any previous experience and is doing a decent job.

Re: Week 15: Redskins vs Cowboys Gameday thread

I don't really care for Haslett but can he be fired one season after transitioning to the 3-4 defense when they obviously don't have the personnel to pull it off? I mean he doesn't have a good track record anyway and I wouldn't mind seeing him go but would that even be fair? I think we should have stuck with the 4-3 until you have the draft picks to get the talent you need to pull off a new defensive scheme. What do I know though right? It's not like our defense was bottom of the league this year. Oh, wait....
