Re: Jay Gruden hired as head coach of the Redskins

Interesting tidbit:
David Elfin ‏@davidelfin 4m
A year ago today, @RGIII was going under the knife. Today he gets a new coach.

I think personnel choices will be crucial to the defense regardless of who's DC. We need a starting caliber ILB and a consistent FS. I would love to see us go back to the 4-3.

I don't either. It's kind of reminding me of the Zorn hire, where the assistants were pretty much picked for the HC. I really hope that Gruden makes the decision, or holds the power of who he wants on his staff.

I am with you. I can't understand why we kept Haz. But hopefully there is a better explanation than "It was Shanahan's fault."

Re: Jay Gruden hired as head coach of the Redskins

Jay Gruden is clearly a Bruce Allen hire.

Someone mentioned Haslett as Asst. HC. and Raheem as DC. I'd have no problem with that. To have Haslett serve as a mentor and advisor to the young HC makes a lot of sense to me.

I hope that Gruden has a proper appreciation of the importance of Special Teams. We need immediate improvement in that area.

agree. I personally dont care if we go 4-3 or 3-4, rather see someone else run it even if its Morris. I think the Haz carry over has Danny hands all over it, dont like it.

I think the big difference is that Zorn was completely overmatched in any role above position coach. Also, those were Cerrato/Snyder decisions independent of the HC search. Gruden has relationships with all of these guys already so the 'conversations' may have been to hold these guys around until after the process so he could decide if he wanted them around as well.

Haslett is staying? Are you kidding me...... This reeks of Danny trying to save a buck and throwing him onto Gruden

Re: Jay Gruden hired as head coach of the Redskins

Don't forget that Haz was Gruden's boss with the Tuskers. The choice to retain Haz may have more to do with JG than with Snyder.

Lol! Nice. Joe Theisman was a partial team owner of the Tuskers and Doug Williams was the Tuskers General Manager. Don't forget the Shottenheimer (Marty and Kurt) angle with the Tuskers/Destroyers. Oh yeah, Kurt Gouveia was the linebackers coach and Mike stock the special Teams coach. There's probably 100 other people that have Tusker - Redskins connections in the past 4 years...

C'mon, man! When did Danny ever worry about spending a few bucks on a coaching staff? He'll pay for the right people.

Re: Jay Gruden hired as head coach of the Redskins

Rumblings on Twitter that we're switching to the 4-3. I like this (if true). Cofield was a very good 4-3 DT in NY. I hope Riley is up to the task of being the MLB. Maybe Orakpo and Kerrigan as DEs?
