Iím not sure if this is been mentioned or discussed, but has anyone thought that maybe Washington is stockpiling Alabama talent with the plansTo make a hard run at Saban Should Gruden get fired?

Yes. I have mentioned that several times here. I think that is exactly what they are doing.

If that's the plan, I fucking hate it. He is too old and some guys are solely college coaches or pro coaches. He's the former.

Not sure Saban would be as successful in the NFL as in college. In the NFL he will only get one Number one pick, and in college he was getting several 4 and 5 star recruits.

Re: Nick Saban

Why not? It worked so well with him in Miami when he tucked tail and ran back to the NCAA after only 2 seasons.

Which would make it the most Dan Snyder move you could conceive of.

Well, a return worked for Pete Carroll. Sometimes people learn a lot their first go around.

He's getting paid a ton at Alabama and is a god down there. I don't think he will be going anywhere.

Don't underestimate the power of ego, and he's got nothing left to prove in college. I think he'd come back to the NFL for the right situation.

Re: Nick Saban

Step back and understand the big picture.

- Dan Snyder buys the franchise.

- Dan Snyder, year after year, spearheads splashy moves that create buzz and headlines. Deion, Bruce Smith, Spurrier, Gibbs, Haynesworth, RGIII...

- Dan Snyder sees the stadium full every year.

- After not winning much, Dan Snyder decides to back off his approach and let his people lead a more measured approach to build for the long term. Splashy moves are foregone.

- After continued mediocrity Dan Snyder in 2018 sees the stands empty, hurting his revenue.

- Dan Snyder concludes that the organization needs splash and buzz or his personal return on investment suffers.

I think the long experiment to build sensibly for sustained success is over. Snyder is going back to being Snyder. That means big splash at WR as hinted by JP Finlay, and it means doing whatever he needs to get his guy at coach, including instructing the team to stock up on Alabama players in a ploy to lure Saban, who once complained about not having control over his own destiny in the NFL.

Get Saban his guys and he may feel differently about the NFL.

Ready or not Dan Snyder is back. Woe is us. But that's the reality.

That and Alabama doesn't have a salary cap. A lot of college coaches are successful due to having superior talent. Going to the NFL they lose that edge.

These are excellent points. But they are points that Dan Snyder does not understand.

Good points. Like to add that college coaches absolutely love the schedule and workflow associated with coaching in college.

They do not have to be concerned with a CBA. NCAA regulations strictly dictate practice times and schedules with respect to academics.

Recruiting..... Most college coaches absolutely love hitting the road and recruiting these kids and meeting moms and dads etc etc etc.

I would only guess that successful college coaches try the NFL because it is just an itch they have to scratch.
