That's what I said as well but that's the word around there. Pittsburgh is tired of him and he is gone. I don't believe it either but if its true I think I would take him in a minute.

Is there anyone out there around the Pittsburgh area hearing the same thing?

Re: Choose Your 2014 Redskins Head Coach (Volume 2)

I retract my early vote for Shanahan.

Now that he's blatantly acting in the best interests of the team to screw with Snyder...forget him.

I had previously held to the idea of seeing what he could do with a full salary cap...well you've burned that bridge, Mike. Please leave.

I'm not sold on Briles. I'm not sold on Chip Kelly's recent streak of success. This division's weakness is the only reason they're sitting on top right now and I do not believe he'll have long-term success...so trying to replicate what Philadelphia is doing is not the right move. The only reason to bring in Briles is to make Griffin's job easier, but I also think that would hold him back from developing into the pro QB he needs to become for a long career.

I've always liked Jon Gruden but I'm not sure I trust him after his recent comments that Cousins should be playing. I still maintain the best thing for Robert right now is reps.

Bill O'Brien is intriguing. I am stuck here in the middle of Paterno country and I really thought Penn State would be really harmed by the NCAA sanctions and reduced scholarships. O'Brien has done an incredible job with the team who was playing at a competitive disadvantage, something Shanahan could not do wit the salary cap penalty. He also has pro experience with Belichick, which is invaluable.

Jay Gruden is an outstanding choice, but I also think we need to bring in a defensive-minded coach like Lovie Smith. I'm fine with Jay as HC if we can bring in a top defensive coordinator. I don't know if Lovie would settle for a DC job with other teams like Houston probably pursuing him for a top job, but landing both Jay Gruden as HC and Lovie Smith as DC would be the best possible scenario to me.

Ken Wisenhunt could be a good choice.

I'd trust Singletary as a DC, but not HC.

Sumlin could be a good choice to help develop Griffin into a pro QB.

Aaron Kromer has had great sucess at building offensive lines, which is one of our greatest needs.



I'll rank my new choices:

Lovie Smith
Jay Gruden
Bill O'Brien
Ken Wisenhunt
Kevin Sumlin
Aaron Kromer
Darrell Bevell

I've heard rumors that he's a candidate for the Texas Longhorns.

I don't think that rumor would start without one about him losing his Pittsburgh job.

Jeff Tedford would also be a great choice

Couple of names to think about-Tag Ribary and Duke Tobin
SS, after the past events of this very embarressing week including a direct shot yesterday "Dan doesnt care about the other positions", are the odds pretty much Shanny doesnt return? Is it pretty much wrapped up? or is there still a 10-50% chance Shanny returns?

To be fair he later clarified:

Quote:
Shanahan also said: ďThatís what you do about a quarterback. Heís your franchise. Thatís why you ask those questions. You donít do it about the other positions. Dan could care less about the other positions: ĎHey, thatís why you coach. Thatís why I own.í I understand that. Thatís not a problem. But I do ask it about a quarterback because weíre gonna have a circus atmosphere any time you make a decision like that.Ē

Shanahan later clarified that remark in a conference call with Atlanta reporters, saying any owner would be concerned about a decision regarding the quarterback and Snyder leaves all football-related decisions solely to him about players at other positions.

Mike Shanahan says Daniel Snyder, Bruce Allen on board with benching of Robert Griffin III [updated]

Re: Choose Your 2014 Redskins Head Coach (Volume 2)

I would love to have Jay Gruden as our HC. But how interested is he in coaching the Redskins? And also, is he interested in the Texans' job? Because if it comes down to a decision between the Redskins or Texans, I can't see anyone choosing us. Houston is in a prime position for a young head coach.

He's interested. But if the Titans job opens up, that's probably his top choice

Re: Choose Your 2014 Redskins Head Coach (Volume 2)

Not trying to be a dick but what is the appeal of Jay Gruden?

I don't know much about him and Cincinnati isn't doing anything offensively that says genius.
They are 10th on offense with a lot of talent and we are 9th.
He's never had a top 10 offense.
Is he just the next Gruden?

What about Todd Bowles? Former Redskin, knows and respects our history, well respected coach. I wouldn't mind seeing him at least get an interview.

I don't understand why people are so attached to former players of the Skins. AKA: Russ Grimm.

What does knowing our history have to do with being a good coach? Shit I know our history.
