Good listen - ex-Seahawks LBer KJ Wright on Dan Quinn.

I like some of his suggestions like Quinn should still be the defensive playcaller. All the hot new HC's mostly still do the things that got them the job in the first place, like Kyle S, Matt Lafleur, Sean McVay, etc.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

Might as well get used to half the fans like the hire and other half don't ..every loss next year will be I told you so .. wins the same!!

My biggest question is WHY were we so enamored with Johnson to begin with ?? Yea he seemed like a young bright Offensive guy but with NO head coach experience how was that ever gonna work without huge risks.. I'm beginning to believe that We in fact were not sold on him 100% and it was all media driven!
If we were so set on him why was the other candidates all Defense guys ? Why didn't we have a backup plan for Another offense candidate? Glenn was D,Weaver was D .. other than Johnson was there another Offense guy we were interested in .. Let's see Johnson was O , McDonald,Glenn,Weaver,Quinn all D that doesn't sound like we were all in on an Offense coach to me ! Read into it what you want but it could be a clue or omen that we are not gonna go QB at the number Two spot... IF we don't are all you guys that are saying we gotta trust the new regime still gonna be good with that ? This should be interesting indeed..

They said from the beginning that they weren't looking for an offensive or defensive coach. They were looking for the best leader.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

Chief .. what part of Johnson did they think was a leader ? He had no experience at all with anything other than calling plays . If they wanted the best leader he would have been last on the list .. #1 Harbaugh , #2 BB ,#3 Vrabel,Quinn (tie) those are the proven leaders ! At this point I am on board with Quinn because he is the closest to my choice Vrabel .. who evidently wants too much control but good for him if I was gonna be blamed /fired for team I would want the say also . I know people beat up on BB but he is greatest modern coach ever regardless and is currently unemployed.. My favorite head coaches are Mike Tomlin, Andy Reid,Pete Carrol, Sean Payton,Bill B,Mike Vrabel ,both Harbaugh .. the second tier is Antonio Pierce,Kyle Shanny,Dan Campbell, hopefully Quinn will prove to be the leader we need !!

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

I don't get why people don't understand the concept of due diligence and playing by the NFL rules.

Due diligence - Arranging interviews with the "hot" names (including Slowik, Johnson, Macdonald etc). Arranging interviews with "retreads" that may have leadership qualities that stand out (Quinn, possibly Belichek)

Playing by NFL rules - no in person interviews until after the divisional playoff game

Between those 2 things, Washington did end up picking a known leader, albeit a former cowboys coach

No, we didn't win the off-season hiring cycle, but how has winning the off-season worked in the past.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

Charley Casserly chimed in on the hire, successful drafting, and what went wrong for Quinn in ATL.
Talked me off the ledge a bit.

Cre, again much love, but I think this job with all the brash high class advisors combined with landing the top GM talent was a win…these expectations after this screamed a better option than Quinn. We are getting a retred with his record says he better have a solid OC in order for him to succeed.

While I understand all the we are moving on from a Snyder lead org and we should be excited…I can still understand the pessimism of not being able to land that HC. The bigger decision still could be who is no 2 in the draft, but I still believe in scheme over talent.

We need to nail that OC as much as the no 2 pick.

I can't tell you if they even thought Johnson was a leader. I don't know what they knew, and neither does anyone else on here. I'm pretty sure that was the point of the interviews though, and why they didn't go into them with offensive or defensive goggles on - so they could determine who would be the best leader for the team. My guess is early on, Johnson didn't shine in that aspect, he knew it, and he bailed.

You are assuming they had these candidates ranked going in. My point is, I don't think they did. He was identified as an option from the beginning, and now he's the HC. Seems like their process worked.

After a couple interviews, did they want Macdonald over Quinn? Maybe, but I'm not sure we'll ever know that. Could be the other way around, and that's why Macdonald went to Seattle.

It's a done deal now though. The defense is most certainly going to be better. So like others have indicated, it's all about who the OC is now.
