Makes me feel great about our talent evaluators.
I wanted the Skins to draft Nixon, so I was thrilled when they picked him up as an UDFA. Alas, they let him get away.

Nixon is big, athletic, and fast, with long arms. From the little I saw of him, I felt that, in time, he could develop into a starting NFL OT.

When the Skins draft McRib Bust in the 3rd Round, then keep him on the 53-man roster while letting a good prospect like Nixon get away, I can see why you might think that somebody at Redskins Park is clueless about O-Line talent.

p.s. Full disclosure: I am so done with Shanahan that I am likely to criticize just about anything he does or has done or doesn't do or hasn't done.

Re: Choose Your 2014 Redskins Head Coach

As much as I donít disagree that drafting under the Shanny reign has been less than spectacular, letís remember that every other team passed on Nixon. If he goes on to have even a solid career then maybe chalk him up as one who got away, but letís wait and see what he does in any given game-time for Indy.

Is there any further indication of where the process is with the new GM btw? I know Smoot mentioned a few weeks back that Morocco Brown was favourite. If thatís the case, do we have any idea what kind of coach heíd go for if indeed Mike doesn't stick around, i.e. a young up and coming college guy? A co-ordinator who is overdue a HC role? A former HC who has been out of the game for a period of time? Or someone else completely out of left field?

I don't disagree with the point that it is too early to conclude that Nixon will be a solid NFL contributor. My point simply is that for a part of our team that is a glaring weakness, seeing a guy we cut go to another playoff bound teams active roster is frustrating. (It would be one thing if it were a RB - we seem pretty set there. ). And it does make me question talent evaluation. It is spotty at best. I can only hope that Rambo, Thomas, and Amerson all pan out and become starters or real contributors. We will need that in order to be able to concentrate on drafting or signing guys pretty much everywhere else but at the QB and RB position, which are the only ones that I think we can safely not worry about this offseason.

Oh, and why aren't we auditioning a new punter already? Sav has been awful (I don't pin the botched snap on him this week or course), I imagine we could pick up someone at this point and see improvement.

Re: Choose Your 2014 Redskins Head Coach

Mort was on the radio in Atlanta this morning and a friend of mine sent me what he had to say about the situation in Washington:
Chris Mortensen had some critical words about Bob's leadership ability and said he blames Snyder for creating the problem. He did not dog Bob but questioned whether he could be the leader as a franchise QB. He said Baby Shanny was a great coach and it would be a mistake to let him go. Also said Daddy Shanny may not want to be back because he felt undermined by Snyder.
This was on 93.7 The Fan.

Looking at Gannon's stats, I don't think it has so much to do with Gruden as it does, specifically, with Tressman and/or Callahan. I credit Gruden for putting the right coaching staff together. However, we know if Gruden were to be hired, he couldn't go out and grab Tressman. Seeing how Tressman has faired with McCown, I'd wager that it was more Tressman developing Rich Gannon into the QB he became late in his career, than it was Gruden or even Callahan.

Looking at Brad Johnson's stats, he had just as good, if not better numbers before Gruden came to Tampa Bay. In fact, Johnson had his best, statistical season with the Redskins in 1999. Marc Tressman was still in Oakland when Gruden came to TB. With that said, I would think quarterback development is credited to Tressman and not Gruden.

So, if Gruden were to be hired, he would need to hit on the right coaching staff around him to make things successful. I don't really believe Gruden, himself, would be the savior for the Redskins. No more than Mike Shanahan.

Yeah, I was just posting for info sake.. I do think there's some unhappiness on Mike's end but there shouldn't be regarding Snyder. Unless there's stuff going on behind the scenes that's not out there, Dan has stayed in the background and let him do his thing.

it's obvious MS is not happy anymore in DC , look at his reactions on the sidelines and after games. Of course losing does that to u

Re: Choose Your 2014 Redskins Head Coach

our offense has no identity. besides sloppy.

i feel like the defense just lacks a playmaker or two. we need a beast defensive end, a safety, a cb. put a beast inside either orak or ryan and whoa.

Everybody talks about McCown and Trestman which is true, but look at his history dating back to Bernie Kosar at the U. Everywhere the guy has been his QB's and offenses have been at the top of their game - Scott freaking Mitchell. Lol

I agree. Snyder has been invisible. Shanny has won a single playoff game in 15 years of coaching. He has had more than enough opportunity to be successful in that time span.

- RGIII only needs to do his job on the field to be a leader.

- If Baby Shanny is so great, why isn't he a HC by now?

- Who cares if Daddy Shanny leaves? We don't need him to help us lose.
