He should get to make that decision. Can't see how he would have taken the job with the condition he has to develop Howell. If SH really ends up being QB1 it should be because EB really likes him.

Really hope this works out. But with the way things typically go for this franchise, I can't help but think it's not going to work out the way we're hoping and we find out the Chiefs success was all due to Reid and Mahomes and EB was just along for the ride. Really hope to be proven wrong here.
Third times a charm for Washington when dealing with Andy Reid.

My guess is we're all on board with "square one" if it involves getting rid of Snyder.

Drop me off at Square -100 if Snyder is gone.

Andy Reid always gets over on Washington. Whenever he needs to dump someone he calls Dan.

I disagree. I think move keeps Snyder here as Owner. I think he has inflated the price ,rumors are no bid has come close to the 7 Billion he is asking for.

I really don't see how hiring a new offensive coordinator changes Dan's mind on selling. Why?

He cannot possibly be worse than Turner. Reid kept him around for a reason and says he is ready. Players say he is a motivator.

I hope in a couple years he is a very successful HC and alot of other teams are wishing they would have hired him. A lot of that is gonna depend on Howells progression and what we do about the Oline this offseason. We certainly got the weapons.

I'm beginning to think he never was going to sell the team.

I personally think he was willing to sell initially because he believed that he was going to have no problem getting the 7 billion that he wanted.

Now that it is known that he isn't getting anywhere close to that, he can just come back and say "I wanted to sell but I didn't get my asking price".

I think that Dan has been of the mindset for the past several weeks that he isn't selling and has just been doing due diligence for IF someone shows up out of the blue and offers 7 billion.

This.

I'm not expecting a lot out of next season. But I'm happy we got a competent OC to hopefully make it an entertaining and not-hopeless season nonetheless.

There are two potential outcomes that I see:

1. The 2023 season is a dud. The offense sputters, we waste another season with these weapons and limp to an average record = everybody is fired.

2. The 2023 season is a success. The offense is top 10-15, the defense is top 10, we compete for the division title, make it to the playoffs and win at least one game = RR stays, finds a new OC, and EB is a head coach somewhere else in 2024.
3. Offense is successful but Defense isn't, average record, new owner likes and trusts EB and is happy to make an easy move to keep being the new nice guy in town, elevates him to HC.

Not saying 3 is more likely than 1 and 2, but this possibility exists.

Now, do I think that's EB's reasoning and why he took the job? Absolutely not. I just think he failed so many HC job interviews before and has realized he needs to get out of Andy Reid's shadow to get some real respect and eventually land a HC job. Rivera won't shadow him at all, if the offense works well all the credit will be EB's.
