Roman's style is like Gibbs, big physical OL, a tough pounding type RB and wide open offense with the right QB, in our case RGIII. He did it with Luck, don't go by his #'s look at his success with QB's. He knows to adapt to the type of QB he has.
So again this goes to my previous post, our roster isn't suited to that style of play. You're good with starting over again with the OL because we aren't big & physical, RB because Morris is perfect for our scheme but probably wouldn't fit as well in others and WR because we don't have weapons for a 'wide open' scheme.

Offense isn't close to an issue for us, we need to fix the D.

I don't care 4-3 or 3-4, both work if schemed properly. We've got major backend personnel issues but if those get shored up and we're healthy on the front 7 I think our defense would be decent under a better coordinator. I doubt changing back to a 4-3 would magically transform us back to a top 10 unit.

True, fix the defense first but there is nothing to say you couldn't gradually change the players to fit the scheme that he likes

I agree with this. I like the 4-3 better and I think it is easier to get players that fit the 4-3 scheme than the 3-4

Offense is fine, we have the working pieces, a RT is needed. D is the main problem.

Knowing is half the battle. At this point we have to battle with what we have. Hell seems like we have solved the kicker problem that has plagued us for years. Come the offseason i think the issues are pretty much as obvious as can be. Garcon's injury is the one x-factor for me. If it is a career derailing injury than wide reciever becomes an issue(moss is probably due to age in his final year). Not sure we have enough cap space/ draft picks to fix wr , rt, maybe mlb, and our secondary.

SS reported on the friction between Fletch and a couple of other players with Haslett. And SS said he already knew some of this was going on and wasn't surprised by some of the rest. Just curious what it takes for something to stop being a rumor and becoming a fact in your eyes. I heard the economy sucks and unemployment is high....I guess we'll have to wait and see on that one too huh?
No because the economy sucking and the unemployment being high is actually facts.. There is numbers and stats behind it.

I've seen this before on different scales around the league. People here something, and then assume it's right and then spread it around for a little jest.

Ill start believing a rumor when it's not a RUMOR Till then, i'm just going to enjoy the game this Sunday and the rest of the season.

Yeah but this info is coming from reliable places. If you are waiting for Shanny to come out and say he has lost the team or for Griff to come out and say he is not happy it aint gonna happen
Im with ya about enjoyin the game though.

How many losing teams with this kind of internal strife rebound under the same regime/leadership?

Kinda gets back to that "how long do you give them" debate.

Replacing a Shanny with a Gruden, Cowher...just not a strong move imo. Doesnt make sense to me.

A move that I wouldnt mind (braces for attack) when it comes to retread at head coach would be Reid WITHOUT Marty Morningweg coming along.
If Gruden or Cowher called and said they WANT to coach this team, do you at least set up a meeting?

Well, I would first ask each one over the phone "what is a sycophant?" Gruden would obviously know and would set up a meeting. Cowher would not and would be hung up on. Upon the arrival of Gruden to our meeting, I would have on my finest boots, Doc Martins of course, and after walking through all the bullshit of this thread they would be quite filthy. Id first ask how bad to you want to coach this team and raise my shit kickers for the bootlickin'. Gruden would squint real hard and then remember his easy job at the mothership and probably walk out. Neither have what it takes to do the job.

That's excellent. For the record I'd be more excited about up and coming HC talent too. A guy who knows his stuff, is hungry for battle and doesn't give two shits about the media nightmare all coaches face in DC.

The fact of the matter is that all big market teams face media nightmares. In every sport. Winning makes them go away. If Washington had a problem as far as getting people to want to take the HC job it was Snyder. He seems to have backed off and let the football people do their job this time around, therefore, i would imagine, setting a precedent for any future regime.
