Re: Raheem Morris to the Redskins

Told you guys Keenan and Jackson were headed out. Morris could still leave if someone names him defensive coordinator, which probably explains why Slowik is still there

What is funny is that I don't remember anyone during the season saying "the Redskins need to upgrade their secondary coach." Raheem Morris is a relatively big name for a position coach. But I also don't remember people saying, "the Redskins don't have enough 'name' coaches on the staff."

At no point next year will I be able to judge Raheem Morris on the quality of his work here. Neither will anyone else. I hope he does really well. But we'll probably never know what kind of effect he is having on the players' lives, without having that personal connection with the players.

If you find that analysis to be negative, you can just block me now.

Re: Raheem Morris to the Redskins

I don't mind the Morris hiring, I just wanted someone different to coach the secondary. Hopefully Morris is a better position coach than head coach and we get something out of that unit. Don't know how to feel about KM being let go, I mean how can you evaluate your receivers when you have sh*t at the QB position. But then again there were dropped passes here there, so who knows. Maybe some change in that area will help. Still, this team needs a QB, and you can bring all the assistants you want, it won't mean squat if you don't have a decent QB behind center.

Preach. The qb position is vital to the team's success. We won't be anything without a quality one.

And thats what Morris offers: a different voice to a struggling position group.

If you believe we're in need of a different voice, then it's a good move, right? If you believe that the Redskins can't have enough continuity in the coaching staff, then it's a bad move, right? I'm not surprised that the concept of continuity hasn't come up in this thread, as it's become a self-serving argument over the years.

All the other losing teams are switching up (tweaking) their coaching staff. Why not the Skins?

Because the Skins have coaches who are better than us. Or something. I'm with you: I don't even really understand the argument for or against Raheem Morris.

It's news to be sure. But one of the questions I asked myself right after I heard about the hire was, "wow, Raheem Morris?! How did the Redskins land him as a positional coach?!" And then I remembered that Tampa's season was pretty unwatchable this year. And then it made sense to me.

I think he's overqualified for this position, which makes it cool that we have him, but not a lot more than cool. I hope he does really really well.

The only continuity I have seen on the defensive side of the ball is terrible play from the safeties and corners. I know this may be a stupid thing to say, but the 3-4 switch should not have anything in the secondary, yet they continued to struggle. Despite what other people think, I also think the FS position has suffered since Sean Taylor's passing. I thought Atogwe would be the answer, but obviously injuries have affected his play.

I agree with everything you wrote here. The secondary was a weakness of the 2009 team, and we haven't improved it from then,

People should know from reading my opinions the last few weeks that I do not fear organizational change within this coaching staff and can even see its value. I think people would be hard pressed to argue that Raheem Morris was the the long lost missing link to our defense, but I don't think it hurts at all to try his coaching techniques with this group.

Re: Raheem Morris to the Redskins

After trolling and insulting Bucs fans hard about this guy's incompetence as head coach on Yahoo, now I have to cry as they can now troll me when DeAngelo Hall has his next OMGcanyou****ingstopsucking moment.(not his fault)
