    HH : Coaches Edition of Speculation Publication ;Only Kotwica to Atlanta is official

    If I had to guess: Jets are willing to offer the DC job to Gregg site unseen (thus the existing negotiating window). Gruden prefers to keep Manusky. Snyder implored Allen to look at Gregg as DC. Skins/Gruden agreed to meet with Gregg, but won’t just offer the job until they’ve met and can feel good about working together. Allen’s appeasing Snyder by bringing Gregg in, but also backing Jay by requiring a meeting to be held before a formal offer is provided.

    Jason La Canfora was just on The Other Pregame Show this morning. Said Gregg Williams will be negotiating with the Jets today. If deal doesn’t get done, Dan Snyder has Redskins One standing by to bring him to Washington. London Fletcher (also on) said Snyder regrets letting Williams go in 2008 for Zorn, and that the players loved Gregg.

    If the Redskins do bring in a new President of Football Operations, hope is they either choose someone with a proven track record of success in a front office or a hot up-and-comer. It’s not a great year to hire a head coach with 8 other openings, but it could be an awesome year to hire a front office exec. with no other openings. Examples of preferred targets: Experienced GM: Ozzie Newsome would be ideal. Already friends with Doug. Proven success in the NFL. Only 62. Retiring from Ravens after this year. Played at Alabama (along with much of our roster). Or Up and Comer GM: Eliot Wolf. Currently Assistant GM of the Browns. Comes from the Packers scouting tree. Supposedly adept eye for talent. Not Exciting: Hiring an old coach to run the front office (e.g. Marvin Lewis) Hiring an old GM that underachieved (e.g. Charlie Casserly). Keeping the status quo w/ Bruce. Skins fans have learned their lesson. We need a real Front Office Leader.

    Yes, I believe the Bengals rely on their Coaches to scout players more than other teams.

    Bobby Beathard has Alzheimer’s.

    Bill Polian won NFL Executive of the Year six times. He was a proven winner in running NFL Personnel Departments. His teams consistently won. The Redskins need to find a younger (or still active) Bill Polian, not get cute with gimmicks. For all of Snyder’s marketing investments, he’s never (with the expection a previously-fired-twice-for-cause Scot McCloughan) invested heavily in a player personnel superstar / front office. It’s beyond frustrating. He needs to find the next young Bobby Beathard. To me, Gruden is a good enough coach. We need better players and a more consistent roster. Find the guy who can do it and not get taken to the cleaners by the Packers while trading for a non-factor like Clinton-Dix.

    You’re correct in that he didn’t spell that part out. It’s more my opinion.

    Have you listened to the interview? Adam insinuates Bruce is smart because no matter what happens, he gets to keep his job. Bruce is excellent at positioning himself with Snyder. Bruce is also willing to take the public fall for Snyder mistakes (such as, I believe, multiple instances of the Cousins situation). The fans blame Bruce, so the owner takes less Bullets. There’s a lot of value to the owner, I can see why he’d be hesitant to move on. Snyder is huge on loyalty and Bruce uses that to his advantage by appearing extremely loyal. Adam is tight with Mike Shanahan (Co-wrote a book) who i believe thinks he was betrayed by Bruce to Snyder. I don’t think Adam and Bruce are close at all. Adam just inferred he’d be very surprised if Bruce loses his job because of the hold he has on Snyder.

    Agreed ... I read one article describe him as having Scot’s eye for talent without the drinking. Would want to at least talk to him. I wonder if Bruce and Ron Wolf are friends. They both have a Raiders background.

    Dan’s biggest problem is Dan. Tonight’s performance seemed awfully similar to Spurrier’s final game as coach (Week 17 2003 - 31-7 loss to Eagles). McNabb dancing in the end zone. Non-competitive team. None of the 2003 Players are still here. Spurrier’s gone, so is Vinny. Two things remain. The well-run Eagles organization / owner, and the sloppy, small-time feeling Redskins organization and their owner. I’ve seen this movie before. We can blame Bruce all we want (and we should), but this mess was here before him. The common denominator is Dan and his terrible organizational culture.
  12. Thx for sharing. Would be a popular move.
  13. Thanks for sharing TK. I’d love to see the Skins send the Eagles home for the offseason with a loss. With all of the “can Foles do it again” hype, it’d be great if Josh Johnson and the crew knocked them out.

    Right there with you. Last two drafts have been strong.
