Re: Redskins Name Ike Hilliard WR Coach

I want Darrell Green coaching our DBs about as much as I want Michael Jordan coaching the Bobcats.

Yes. It begs the question, "How is this guy substantially different from McCardell?"

I believe all of them are in the HoF... and none of them had "anything near distinguished" coaching careers.

Yes, Mike Ditka was a great player and he had a good run with the Bears. His time with the Saints - - not so much.

Yes, Bud Grant was a good player and had a good time as coach in Minnesota.

Yes, Dick LeBeau was a hell of a player and is a damned good DC.

Mike Munchak's first year as a HC has been promising...
You left off our guy, Sammy Baugh.

Sammy Baugh went 7-7 in both 1960 and 1961 as head coach of the New York Titans in the old AFL. He coached again in 1964 as head man of the Houston Oilers and finished the season 4-10. That ended Sammy's less than stellar coaching career. The greatest Redskin player ever turned out to be average or below as a head coach. Oh but what a player he was, quarterback, tailback, defensive back, and punter!

Well to be fair, he didn't do so bad considering the Titans were a new franchise...but then again it was only an 8 team league

Not really a big deal people. Give it a chance and see what happens.

Thanks for the addition. I had forgotten about the NY Titans; plenty of old AFL fans have also forgotten about the NY Titans.

And you are correct in adding Sammy Baugh to this list. He is in the Hall of Fame as one of the great QBs ever - - and had a great impact on the game of football because of his passing proficiency - - but was a mediocre coach.

As far as Ike Hilliard goes, I couldn't care less who he played for. If Michael Irvin came to coach the wideouts, I wouldn't give a crap as long as he made the players better. Bottom line I want coaches who can coach. Everything else is mostly irrelevant.
Just as an aside...I've decided he should only be referred to as "Peyton's little brother"
