Nothing like being negative without knowing what your future DC will do. I've seen 4 years of his work and is as good as the other candidates. How about giving him a chance instead of whining about it?

Re: Redskins promote Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator

I'm willing to give it a shot. Let's see what happens. Manusky was a good player for us and played under one of the best DC's ever. Obviously he needs more players.

Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it. Man's been fired from 3 defenses. How does he get fired from SF if his defenses are so great? Is there anybody who has worked on the west coach as a coach or a player that you don't like?

For the second time, we had an opportunity to hire a guy that could elevate a good defense to great. Or an average defense to good. That's the difference a good coach makes. Instead, for the second time, we hire a guy who's been fired for running crappy defenses. What's to get excited about?

I only hope the fan base will get behind the move and give him a chance. I do not want to see post in November bitching about the move.
Ha!

If McCloughan gives him a talent upgrade as expected, and we come out with a mediocre to poor defense, I'll be calling for Gruden's head after two games.

This move reeks of limited comfort zone.

Re: Redskins promote Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator

Indianapolis Colts: Greg Manusky

From just 2014...this kinda gave me a chubby:
The defense finished 11th in the NFL in yards allowed, an improvement of nine spots from a No. 20 ranking in 2013. The Colts also finished second in the league in third down percentage allowed (33.3%), which was the lowest single-season percentage allowed in team history since 1972. From Weeks 4 through 7, the Colts only allowed one third down conversion in four straight games, marking the longest such streak by an NFL team since 1970.

I agree with the proven winner and am underwelmed by his overall defensive rankings.

2014 in Indy wasn't so bad and he is a former Redskins (wishful thinking)

Greg Manusky must prove Washington Redskins made right hire to run D - Washington Redskins Blog- ESPN

Agree with Keim here that this move must work or it's likely going to cost Gruden big. Of course McCloughan is a big piece here too, we need some serious upgrades on the defensive side from free agency and the draft this offseason.

Re: Redskins promote Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator

Look, I was actually on board with Barry getting one more year, so I'll give Manusky a chance. But this just had blah written all over it. I want to know the reasons why we didn't get and/or choose Pettine?? He was actually my first choice even over Bradley and he's still out there.

I might be wrong, but I like Gruden as our coach. I want to extend him and SM, but I agree, he better be right here. Hiring the right assistants is a huge part of the job.

Re: Redskins promote Greg Manusky to defensive coordinator

Not extending Gruden might have cost us one of the big names. If this was the plan all along then what wait 2 weeks? Nobody wants a one year gig. Gruden might be out the door after next season if we stink.

I think Gruden has to win at least 8 games or he's gone. He will likely have another QB to try and do that with too. it's going to be hard, but he can do it if we have even an above average defense next year to take pressure off the QB.
