What if you bring in Greg Williams and keep Raheem Morris?

Yep. Williams might want his own defensive staff though. Idk how realistic any of that is.

Agreed. The best available coach - by a mile - just got hired in Tampa. Whoever we hire, they'll be a downgrade from shanahan. That much is certain

Of course you didn't. Everyone had just blindly jumped on the Briles bandwagon without knowing shit about shit. Everyone is looking at all of these candidates through rose colored glasses. It's amazing how the irrational hatred of shanahan has got everyone looking at mediocre guys as messiahs. All of you, answer me this -

How confident are you that ANY of these guys you've got hard ons for would have done better than shanahan inheriting cerratos roster and having the salary cap penalty?

Keep in mind that almost 50 players on the roster zorns last year were completely out of the league 2 years later. Shanahan inherited a roster that devoid of talent and the cap penalty prevented him from fixing it as quickly as he otherwise could have. I'm not trying to whine about losing shanahan as much as I'm pointing out that you have no rational basis for believing Any of these college coaches or nfl coordinators will improve on the foundation shanahan built vs tearing it apart.

Umm. Doesn't have anything to do with being "blind".

I'm not going to judge a coach or team based off one year of penalties.

22 wins in 4 seasons is pretty mediocre for any head coach. Doesn't get any more mediocre then that.


Its not about the Cerrato team that any coach would be inheriting. It would be about what coach is going to with a ream that Shanahan made. Slow Defense and a small offensive line. Only one playmaker at WR and a RB who we are not sure will be able to play outside a Shanny zone offense.

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

Also the penalties make sense because they do run so many more plays then typical teams

Shanahan was less than mediocre, want proof look at his record post Elway and Washington. Dismall

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

It sucks we're already into gamble candidates ie coordinators without HC experience and pretty limited success. I mean at least McDaniels had a ring as DC.

Maybe the bad rap is making a difference in the A list guys minds. Hoping we don't end up with another Zorn type hire, tho still prefer that to a lowlife like Shanahan. With Lovie gone my next guy up is Gregg Williams. Sure bring Briles in to run the offense. Even call him HC if that's what it takes. But at this point we need a leader of men and there's only ? marks on the interview list.

Y'all realize that the order in which candidates are interviewed has zero to do with the order of interest in them, right?

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

I just don't get why everyone thinks we need a HC with HC experience. Most the current NFL coaches that are having success didn't. We have gone through so many retreads, and really never have given an unproven guy much time to develop (Spurrier, Zorn ; pretty sure they wouldnt have, but look at Gibbs slow start). I'm glad there aren't many "experienced" HC out there to confuse this search. I want a young guy that Our young talent can relate to, will listen to, and will play their hearts out for. I want a guy that will get creative and adjust game plans and schemes based on circumstance and available talent. I want someone with those intangible leadership skills, someone with "it". I don't know what "it" is, but I think that is really what matters when choosing a HC when the "experienced" pool is running dry or not what your looking for. I hope Bruce knows what "it" looks like, and that he finds someone who has it.

Anyways, chill out, these are only the first few interviews. I have a feeling I ought to watch the playoffs this year (usually don't care if it isn't Skins), chances are that's where our future coach is.

I really like what McDermott's players had to say about him.

They'll have every opportunity to quickly improve the roster. The Skins are in a better cap situation that any team in the NFC and all of Shanny's signings over the years have been team friendly. The next coach isn't inheriting a Haynesworth or Portis-like contract. They'll have a full compliment of picks starting in year 2.

And the cupboard is not bare, at least on Offense. They were the #1 rushing unit just last year and top 5 Offensively. It will all come down to the play of RG3. Reed can be a legit #2 and garçon lead the league in receptions and Alfmo put up 1600 yards just a year ago. TW is one of the best left tackles in football.

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

Briles shouldn't even be considered. And i dont get what the hype around Bevell is. The Seahawks aren't known for offense and after everything I have read I certainly don't get the interest.

McDermott seems a better choice if it were between the 2
