Williams rules!

Much as I love listening to Gibbs every time he talks, whenever coach Williams says something, I get so fired up I feel like punching a hole in the wall. Here's a sample of some of his latest stuff--from skins.com:

From the Sidelines With Gregg Williams

I love his comment about Taylor: "The biggest thing I have to do, and I take it personally, is getting him to live here next off-season. But I have a lot more on my mind before that happens."

The only downside about having a coordinator this good is that he'll likely be a head coach for someone else soon. That's life in the NFL, I'm afraid. Let's hope that Danny-boy gives him the moon to hang around until Gibbs steps upstairs to the FO. If not, Greg Blache will be a great coach, but Williams is one-of-a-kind. :headbange

LDS gave Coach Williams the moon when he and HOF Coach Gibbs hired him. Coach Williams makes more than some NFL HCs!

My guess is HOF Coach Gibbs is out by year 4 or 5, and Coach Williams takes over.

Mind you, I'm not wishing such a thing, just guessing.

Re: Williams rules!

DW has kids in school and loves the DC area, so I wouldn't look for him to leave anytime soon. I agree that the most likely scenario is a secession, with DW taking over for Gibbs at some later date. In fact, I think I remember some news source intimating rumors last year that Snyder had essentially told Doug this was the gameplan, although this might just be a creation of my mind. Certainly makes sense though. The Buffalo debacle notwithstanding, DW is head coach material and will be succesful as such, whether its here or somewhere else. Bellicheck didn't get it right the first time either...

Re: Williams rules!

Gregg Williams will most likely be the Head Coach once Gibbs leaves....that might have been part of the agreement for him to come, I dunno. Gibbs is just plain awesome, but he won't be Coach forever, and I think Williams will take over.

Re: Williams rules!

I really like that scenario, though it will be tough when teams come calling.

It is so great to have a D we can be proud of again. Now if the O can just get it going....!

My friend is a DIE-HARD Bills fan and he remembers hearing reports of G. Williams starting training camp in B-lo with 14 two-a-days! Average amount that year was something like 8!! He also, would wake up the players in the early a.m. drill sargent style,yelling, screaming, etc ... I thought that was damn-funny!

Re: Williams rules!

Yeah, if we can keep the same caliber defense as we did last year and get the offense going (which I have a good feeling we will). This'll be a really good year.

Haha, I bet the Bills players were real excited to go to camp.

Re: Williams rules!

gibbs said in some press conferences last year that when he hired GW he made sure they agreed the williams would be here for the long haul, so i think Gibbs is honestly concerned with long term health (unlike parcells who's going all out to win now)... gibbs picked what will hopefully be our next great coach for forever (dude is young for a coach), he's given GW everything he's wanted (full defensive control, 2 top ten picks on defense, and he even threw in a young talented rb and a quaterback of the future, just in case).

that, of course, would be the ideal situation at least.

Re: Williams rules!

If a succession were to take place I would take a defensive guru, such as Williams, over an offensive guru. Notwithstanding the football cliché that "defense wins championships..." I believe his moxie for developing underrated defensive players would supercede a need to hire an offensive whiz. I mean thinking pragmatically, Joey G won't be around forever and to replace him with Williams would certainly be boon to the Skins viability down the road.

Re: Williams rules!

Gotta love this guy...running up and down the sidelines, hugging his guys, slapping high fives....loves the game and his players know it and perform.

Re: Williams rules!

I'm about to drop some Curmudgeon on y'all, so bear with me

I love having Gregg Williams here as our assistant head coach-defense but that doesn't automatically imply he'll be a great head coach. It's possible that he's learned from his first foray into head coaching and that he's learning from Gibbs and he'll do much better his second time around. But we probably shouldn't discount the possibility that maybe he's just not cut out to be a head coach. Some people (Turner, Rhodes come to mind) are great coordinators or assistant coaches but they miss that certain something that makes them great head coaches.

I'm not saying don't consider GW just to consider other as well. Such as Greg Blache-who should have gotten that San Fran job before they gave it to Erickson-or all-time Redskin great Russ Grimm.

Hopefully though, this is a question we won't really have to address for at least 4 more years

Re: Williams rules!

I'm going to agree with that. It's not be curmudgenoish it's beeing realistic. He would probably still have one of ht best defesnes in the league, but just maybe not have the rest of what it takes.
