    I am of the opinion that the coach doesn't particularly matter given the way the FO runs the team. Bruce hiring another coach is an exercise in futility. The only advantage to that is it brings optimism to the locker room in the form of a spark. I don't think Gruden is a bad HC. He does some things ridiculously well. His shortcomings could be made up for with assistant coaches given more autonomy. But he is a sitting duck where he is right now. Seems to have very little control and the "same ole Skins" status is strong with him. The Skins likely need a new HC despite my opinion of Gruden. But Bruce doing the hiring is a giant elephant in the room.

    Im totally not down with the forgiving and forgetting Spicer thing. I would still like to kick his ass.

    Can we just round up all these flat-earthers, drive them to the rim and push them over?

    Trents value will never be higher than in the next 2-4 weeks. A huge part of his value is the remaining two years left on deal at a fair price.

    No to Ramsey. Get rid of Williams. Trade Kerrigan in the offseason. Let Norman walk (his contract is up, correct?) Say goodbye to Jordan Reed (if his contract is up either work a sign and trade or let him go... [we could have traded him before this], if we have him under contract trade him). Accrue draft picks, don't pass them out.

    He called us mediocre! I've got your seat saved on the bandwagon if you're ready.

    I also just listened to Jay on rhe Redskins Talk Pod. Summary for defensive issues: lots of new pieces, takes time to gel. Ok. I buy that. I ask you, why In the name of all that is holy are we going into week 3 taking about needing to gel when the NFL Gods and the CBA have provided 4 preseason games to work on things? As I’ve said, I don’t really care about how you prepare the team, but it better work. Whatever they did didn’t work. Again. Jay said we were vanilla against Dallas because we were missing Moreau and Dunny. Weren’t the other DBs on the team (minus 1) in training camp? I just can’t imagin Belichick being like, “damn, we lost 2 DBs, guess the rest don’t know what to do...” Hell no. If you’re on that team you are EXPECTED to know what to do or you’re on the next plane out of there. This is the type of thing which drives me crazy. This is year 6 of Jay’s offensive system, year 3 for Manusky, and even though we’ve had stability, players still don’t know where to go, so you can’t stunt, can’t blitz, etc? The reason you want to have stability is so that players don’t have to learn new things. Nothing here is new and we still have breakdowns. Im as big a supporter of getting Bruce out of here as anybody, but I just don’t feel as though the current roster is being even remotely maximized. Jay even called out the coaching about 6 times in his interview. I’ll give him credit, he’s caught on his coaching staff Is part of the problem. Now he needs to fix it somehow. He also said several times he thinks they have the talent to play with anybody. I’m not sure I agree, and I’m not sure he’s helping his cause by saying it. I’d really like to see what this defense could do under a different DC. I’d also like to see what the team could be if coached by somebody who knows better how to prepare the team. Jay just flat doesn’t know how to do it, or hold his coaches accountable for preparing the players, or else in week 2 of year 3 in the same defense Norman and Nicholson wouldn’t be staring at each other as a reviewer torched them. I will also say in listening to Jay, he seems like a really nice guy and he’s easy to root for. But at this point, he’s proven over and over he just isn’t a good HC. He’s probably a great OC. But there’s a huge difference in responsibility between HC and OC. Hiring a staff being chief among them...

    We should have targeted a Case Keenum long ago....traded Kirk & left Smith be. Eventually we backed into finding out that these dudes are all the same, just pay the one nobody wants and protect him until you find the special young QB in the draft.

    I agree...that's why I'd continue to classify these hires as shortcuts. You're trying to impose a culture change from middle management. The change needs to come at the top layers of the organization and then a coach needs to be hired who fits that culture and organizational philosophy. That's how your pro scouting, college scouting, free agency strategy, draft strategy, and coach's decisions all align.

    IMO Jay has checked out. I believe he knows that he's gone. He's got 6 years of nice paychecks from Snyder plus another year coming after this one. By my count that's about 35 million. I really don't think that he isn't overly invested anymore. The disconnect between him and the front office is obvious. Manusky is terrible. He has be let go because teams convert 3rd downs at a alarming rate.

    Honestly, this made my day. Awesome. On a more serious note, the Redskins, whether that be GMSM, Bruce, Jay or Dan, or some combination of all of them, were right about Kirk. He is exactly who we they said he was: the best of the good. That said, they still handled the whole thing completely wrong. If they didn’t want him, they should have either just let him walk after 2015 or signed him to a 3 year deal after 2015. This 2 year of franchise tag stuff cost them in every way possible.

    - "You know the easiest scheme. GO GET THE QB". What a concept! But if we did that we might give up a big play? Better continue to play it safe. Greg Manusky

    Jones has a lot more college experience than Haskins. I've stuck my neck out that Jones is a dink and dunk QB with a low ceiling but maybe high floor -- so hopefully i am right about him. I like Haskins over Jones albeit I had concerns about both. But I do think Jones is more pro ready.

    Before Pats signed OT Caleb Benenoch, Texans hosted him. 49ers are hosting OT Sam Young today.... there's plenty of need for an All-Pro like TW.... The iron is blazing hot. (but we are stupid)

    This bull headed stubbornness of Bruce's (and Dan's too), is maddening. Interestingly enough many of us here have said Bruce and the team have no long term strategy. It's today and today only. Absolutely horrible approach unless you are in fact winning. It's clear Trent does not want to play here. Move him! He could have done this last summer when many of us here said to do so. But no, he is right and the rest of the world is wrong. Every day that goes by I hate Bruce Allen more. Worst NFL executive in the NFL, maybe in all of sports. No vision. No true football acumen. Yet sure he is the smartest one in the room when he may just be the dumbest. Not to mention at last some evidence he is dishonest. Total POS! Ok, rant over. Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    The owner and GM are arguably the worst in sports. Bruce Allen is an idiot and Snyder has ruined a historical franchise through complete negligence.

    There's absolutely no use in bringing in top flight talent if the coaches aren't going to use those guys in a way that fully utilizes that talent. Too many times, we've drafted or picked up a guy in FA, only to ask him to do things that were counter to the reasons why he was a coveted player. We can't get out of our own way.

    Correct, I'm a DC sports fan complaining on a DC sports forum.. I was calling out Braves fans invading the Nationals twitter account. I'm not following the Braves twitter account and posting after every game on theirs... And here you are, a Braves fan in a Nationals thread, further proving my point
