    Next Coach?

    Roman should, and probably will, stay right where he is. The grass ain't always greener.......... As for us, won't make a hill of beans difference who our next coach is if the current team president is still in the building. Snyder could take a lesson from the Panthers' owner and start handing out pink slips right now. It would give us a head start on hiring credible leadership for the FO --- a REAL Team President, and a real VP/GM; no more of this nostalgia nonsense with Doug, who isn't performing a single, genuine NFL executive role whatsoever.

    Paloffs is Now: 2007(merged)

    The only way we would've succeeded with Gruden (i.e., playoff run) is if the rest of the division absolutely stunk, which is how it happened in that 2015 season. He wasn't a total coach. He was an OC who was given too much responsibility. The tone of making AP inactive in that first, just plain dumb. Lamont Sanford dumb.

    You raise a very valid point, and I think most of the credible scribes on this beat have questioned why the FO didn't make this move in the off-season if the ice was so thin that they'd be willing to fire Gruden so quickly. If patience had already worn so thin (as well it should have), they should've cut him loose in the off-season, for sure. I do think that an entire off-season would've given Callahan a chance to make some changes to the coaching staff, and my guess is that the team would've had a much better start. But then again, maybe Callahan wouldn't have pushed for McLaurin? Who knows. I agree with your point, though, and think that scenario would've generated more wins.

    Next Coach?

    Riddick would be a terrible choice for GM, so I'm hoping Snyder doesn't go in that direction. As far as the next coach, it's gonna be tough because all of the likely openings will be far more desirable than being in Ashburn, especially if it's under the current Team President ---- Atlanta, Jets, Jax, Giants, Detroit.....maybe also the Browns. I think David Shaw will be a good pro coach, if he wants to move back to the NFL.

    Do the Redskins have a future guard in Flowers?

    At the end of the season, Flowers will be following Callahan wherever he goes.
  6. For me, O'Connell is just a guy who was pushed on Gruden by the FO, in conjunction with Morocco Brown. If there's a housecleaning in the off-season, everybody needs to go, and no HC in his right mind would keep O'Connell around knowing how and why he was hired. He hasn't accomplished anything whatsoever in the league to warrant the kind of "our next HC" talk that so many on here continue to utter, and even while here, he hasn't shown anything. I agree with Keim -- let him get several seasons under his belt to develop experience and then assess what he can do. As of right now, he hasn't accomplished anything. And even in Ashburn, he hasn't been a real OC.

    The Race to Black Monday 2019: 12/30/19

    I want Garrett to get a lifetime contract, Supreme Court appointment-style. Come on, Jerry! @Rdskns2000, ol' Mike Brown didn't want to hire Taylor. The kids had a lot of say in that decision. I hope for Taylor's sake that the young man can turn things around. Otherwise, I wonder if Brown will be as patient as he has been in the past.

    Next Coach?

    I agree. Keim has said that the next coach will be someone young and desperate for that first HC gig, or a retread who's grateful for getting a chance to give it another shot because no one else would open the door. Sadly, I think this is the state of things. No one with half an ounce of self-worth will subject himself to serving under the current team president. There SHOULD be some good options this off-season, and the chance to lead the squad in Ashburn won't be at the top of anyone's list. The QB situation complicates this whole thing tremendously. Maybe a prospective new coach tells an outright lie like Gruden did, pretending he wants to work with the young QB and can tailor an offense to his strengths. I still don't get why so many people on here think O'Connell is HC material? I've asked for someone to explain that, but there have been crickets. I wish someone could rationalize that for me.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Lions

    I definitely understand your reasoning on that @Gibbs Hog Heaven. I just think you nip that kind of behavior in the bud early by exacting some real discipline in response. I know how I would handle it, but then again, nobody has ever asked me to coach in the NFL (nor will they ever, that's for sure). Just eager to see how Callahan handles it. You can't just run off and start taking selfies when the game is not over. Neither Sims nor Moreau, and neither Dunbar were childish enough to go that route, and they arguably were the reasons the game was won. I want the kid to be successful. I don't follow college football as closely as I once did, so I can't say I was either for or against drafting him; or that I thought he would be a better pro prospect than the others who came out. I just don't like this look.

    Next Day Thread: Redskins vs. Lions

    If I'm the HC, he sits the next game. As a starting QB in this league, you need to lead and you need to be aware. He did neither with that selfie nonsense. It's complete immaturity. What a terrible, terrible display of look-at-me-ness. I get that the kid was excited for his first win, but it certainly wasn't because of the overthrown, lack-of-touch passes that sailed way too frequently, or were underthrown. He needs to learn that it's not all about him. I hope Callahan takes a strong stance on this. We've seen before an egotistical young QB who felt empowered because of his relationship with the owner, and we know how that turned out. Next coach could be in for quite a dynamic.
  11. With a real HC and a bona fide OC, this kid and the others can do some damage. The current OC, despite the unwarranted kudos he routinely gets on this board, wouldn't be employed anywhere else in the league right now had the FO not forced him on Gruden.
  12. I like this kid, and I think he'll be good. Like a lot of the young talent on this team, though, you have to clean house of these coaches and bring in a group of coaches who can maximize their talents. I really like Cavanaugh, but the way the coaching staff was put together and utilized under Gruden never gave Cavanaugh a chance to do his thing. That's a real shame.
  13. I agree with both you and @NickyJ. I can't see Kitchens lasting in this role. And if Dorsey makes another HC decision like this, I don't see him lasting in his role, either. A lot of question marks on that coaching staff.

    !!!!0mgz!!!! Trent Williams finally showed up

    I'm not sure what those quotes prove or disprove there, @Califan007. Hall is free to say whatever he wants. It does not mean that what he's conveying is accurate. The "maybe so" bit is what many will (and did) take and make the situation to be about money. It's not and never has been.
