I feel like we did put all our eggs in the basket with Johnson and then were screwed when he decided to stay. Iím not thrilled with Quinn but Iím willing to wait to see who our OC and DC are going to be.

I think the fans put all their eggs on the Ben Johnson basket and decided that he was the only coach they would hire.

I also think it is funny that Andy Reid will be coaching in his fifth Super Bowl next week, and he's a "retread" that was hired 10 years ago when he was in his 50s.

Its done, move on. Out of interest, what scheme did Dallas play on D? This may keep J.Allen engaged in staying for a fast turnaround. Looks like the OC may come from SF and the DC from Dallas.

I think the media was also edging us with all the Johnson talk. Granted no legitimate reporter was saying it was a done deal but they were saying Johnson was far and away the frontrunner for the position.

Also I think fans are just traumatized with coaches over the years. The surrounding staff and the players are more important than the HC to me. He calls the shots but everyone else is crucial to player development and schemes.

A lot of people in the NFL put Johnson as the favorite for every team, so are you saying that every team that hired someone else settled for their coach?

I am simply saying that if I had to wager whether Peters wanted BJ or Quinn and I had a chance to actually ask him I know where Id put my money.

Again I am not irate or in meltdown mode as reddit apparently is as per Rave, I am willing to give Quinn a chance. I am happy we have a GM in charge of personnel first and foremost and letís see how Quinn fills out his staff. We got 9 picks , 6 of which are top 100 and a boatload of cap space. I am more amped than I have been in years.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

Ben Johnson didnít want to be a head coach, heís choosing to stay in his current job as OC. Thatís on him, not us.

MacDonald went with Seattle, can anyone blame him? Theyíve been a well run franchise for years now and are in a much better position to win now. They also have a rocking stadium and fan base and gorgeous facilities. They also gave him a 6 year deal, perhaps that was more than we were willing to offer. Back up and look big picture, Seattle is a great job.

In the end you canít always get what you want. Often in life youíre forced into other options and itís totally out of your control but you make it work anyway.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

It will take a lot from Dairy Queen to erase the memory of the 28-3 meltdown in his lone SB appearance. Ugh. Hope itís better this time around. Just disappointing but not much to choose from.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

I'm indifferent. Don't hate it, don't love it. Would have rather not had a retread but I get why they hired him. He's got HC experience and knows how to run a team. Time to move forward.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

That SB w/ the Falcons was one of the worst choke jobs I have ever seen. But at least he got a team there.

The last time we saw his defense they were getting their shit pushed in by Green Bay.

This is such a yawn hire. But do I think this is an upgrade from Ron? Idk. Probably. He'll have less to deal with and can just focus on the team. Let's see who he hires as an OC.

For the last 2 years Dallas was fun as hell to watch on defense, high flying , hard hitting and creating TO's.

That has not happened in DC in years...

No we do not have Parsons or Diggs but Quinn will load up on defense in FA I bet.

Remember we have 74M and a ton of high picks.
You could say the only weak spot he had on his defense in dallass was his linebackers, and that's obviously been a huge weakness for Washington...so let's see if HE will finally upgrade this position here.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

On its' face not a great cause for optimism - IIRC 28-3 wasn't the only time those Falcons teams blew big leads under Dan Quinn.

He's walking into a much worse situation here than with the Falcons too - he already had a prime Matt Ryan when he took that job.

As others have said it really depends how he fills out his coaching staff. If they emphasize he's needed more for his leadership roles and he gets a couple young stud coordinators to call plays I'd be happy. But as of now it's wait and see - this looks like they went to their fall-back choice because BJ turned them down.

Re: Our New Head Coach - Dan Quinn

@JPFinlayNBCS
Text from AFC Coach after Rivera was fired: "Quinn is THE best head coach candidate out there. Will not find a more authentic leader of men with a battle plan for victory. Period...Leader, organized, vision, communicator, ball coach."

I was intrigued by Johnson but the guy was an OC for all of one season. No coach hire is a slam dunk; they all involve some risk.

I agree that the coordinator decisions and the draft are now key. And free agency where we have some coin. This team may look way different come training camp (and should). We may also have guys like Fuller and Kurl more interested in staying with a respected defensive coach.

Iím ok with this. Wanted Macdonald as my top choice, but so be it.
