    It is very hard for minorities to consistently break through the barriers put forth by management, the owners and the league. 
     

    There are tons of qualified minority assistants coaches, head coaches and GM who do not get the opportunity because unqualified guys like Joe Barry, Jeff Fisher and Bruce Allen continue to “magically” qualify for these positions. 

     

    What about the lack of white/asian/arab/hispanic players in the NFL? Is it fair to question the barriers put forth by management/ownership that prevents that? No. it's all performance based and the lack of those groups being involved. Coaching is no exception here.

     

    There isn't "tons" of minorities in the coaching/front office.

     

    Bruce Allen, Joe Barry, Jeff Fisher looked promising at the time of hire and was not just "magically" hired. Minorities and majorities was over looked in all of those hires. Was Huge Jackson "magically" hired in Cleveland?

     

    Coaching and playing the game are different fields of study and require a much different qualifications. This generates a different result. Most players don't move on to coaching after playing in the NFL. This is what makes Ron Rivera is rare, not his heritage, but because of making it as a professional football player and as a head coach which is something to be proud about. Same thing for to Jack Del Rio.

  2. What was the reason for Riverboat to sign so fast with us after week 17? Did he not consider other teams? Once week 17 concluded, it was already a signed deal. Sweet pay check? Is it a power/control in the front office? Was no other team interested? Knowing Bruce was getting canned?

     

    Whatever the reason, I think this is a great hire. Even if we don't win with Riverboat, I think he will change the atmosphere in the locker room which could be the foundation of becoming a respectable franchise.

    Yes. It's going to take Bruce Allen gone, it's going to take a new coach, and it's going to take some great new talent like you can get with a #2 pick. 

     

    It hurts to lose to a division rival, but this is EXACTLY what the team needed to make the three things above a lot more likely. The rookies and young guys played well. There's a lot to look forward to with the right additions and additions by subtractions. 

     

    Winning this game meant NOTHING beyond a few good feels for the rest of the day. In fact, it would've hurt us. See above. I'm very happy with how this turned out. I feel very good about Haskins, I love our core of young players, and I want Allen GONE and Chase Young HERE. Big picture, baby!

     

    I understand where your coming from. Losses will hopefully force Snyder to make changes.

     

    Rooting against Redskins... even despite the circumstances..... I just can't do it man. No matter what. I watch the redskins hoping we win the game.  Even when the season is over by October, a victory still feels great and a loose still stings.

    Video

     

     

    I'm unimpressed. Tepper sounded dishonest over the Ron Rivera firing. He said Ron Rivera is a good coach....but he fires him.... during mid season based on performance. Sounds like politician running for congress being interviewed by his own secretary.

     

    His "processes" talk didn't really explain how/why this would make a difference than the current structure. Not saying that was a bad segment of the interview, but it's hardly anything for us to be jealous of or not. He doesn't really tell us anything.

     

     


  5. Unsure why some new owners here think changing the team name and uniforms is a top priority.

     

    With the assistance of the NFL, hiring a consultant to make the initial big decisions on hiring the big heads of public relations, advertisement, front office. Then have those new hires make all the decisions without my permission for the Redskins moving forward.

     

    Then get on board with Renovating FedEx with my own money and renaming it to Redskins Stadium or Jack Kent Cooke Stadium  in 2027. I'd turn it into a amusement type park and not charge for parking,

    Just out of curiousity, where did you stand in the years leading to his departure?  I'm just interested to see if any of Kirk's biggest detractors are willing to own up.

     

     

    Actually, I stood more with Kirk than against when he was here. But in his final year here, I supported the skins for dropping Kirk because money was too steep and he didn't seem to want to play here. Looking back at it now, we really screwed this up. I think the team should have done way more to work with Kirk because he's done a lot for us.

     

    To me, it's more clearer now to see that our offense has significantly regressed after we lost Kirk. Certainly there is other components that plays into the regression of our offense such as the destruction of our good wide receiving core which is another story..

    they were ok.  lets see what they do against minnesota thur.  that same defense, on a field that is NOT a slip n slide, will get ambushed. 400 yds , 30 + points.  stop with the defense talk.

     

    As I said, we've seen worse performance in slip n slide conditions against worse teams. 49ers played in the same conditions. Im sure Vikings will have a better performance than 49ers did. NFL is a week to week league.

     

    It's gotta mean something positive for us at least for today. Hopefully it's a sign we are trending up, defensively at least. I guess my expectations are much lower than the average fan, I expected us to get creamed, regardless of weather conditions, but we had a realistic chance of defeating a damn good team at the end.

    wow.  you don't even realize how much the field & weather had to do with that.  You're gonna be all shades of dissapointed/surprised when Minnesota puts up 400 yards and 30 points on this bad defense on Thursday.

    Wow. We're we born yesterday? I've seen skins give up more in worse weather conditions in just the last few years. Why is the rainy weather suddenly an excuse? Give credit where credit is due.

    You all are nuts.  Why in the Sam hell would Tomlin come here?

     

    If, IF he gets canned by Pittsburgh, he goes on tv to get fluffered for 5 years while his perceived value continues to rise and then he gets to pick his spot.

     

    or, he comes to this **** hole. 

     

    Remove your blinders, Skins are getting a has been or never was.

     

    If the paycheck/power is enough, Tomlin or nearly any coach looking for work will sign. We've seen it in the past. I remember back in 2000 on ESPN, Marty publicly stated he would never work for Daniel Snyder and.....a year later he was working for Daniel Snyder. I'm sure Joe Gibbs thought the same thing prior to 2004, Mike Shanahan as well. Money and power certainly changes a coaches mind.

    I'd have to back to Norv's first season, 1994, to remember a worse team than this one. And that was a salary clear-out, rebuilding year.

    I dunno man. I think the 94 team is one of the best of our cellar dweller seasons. Most of the games lost in 94 was by a touchdown or less. They remember they weren't good enough to win, but they didn't make it easy for most opponents.

     

    I'd say it's a tie between our 2013 season and this season so far.

    What the **** is this?

     

    You've got a guy posting about real life tragedy, with people's clothes being melted onto their skin and you come at him with this ****?

    One trash person laughs at his posts, another complains about memes when it's not memes, but what seems to be actual photos of his neighbors devastation, and then you top it off with some dense ass attempt at victim blaming?

    Some of the people posting on this site disgust me.

     

    RELAX. If you're going to quote me, please talk to me directly, not to an audience. :)

     

    Not speaking for user twa, but where does twa think the tragedy is funny? He laughed at a Asbury post, but it wasn't at the victims. I stand correct on my response to AsburySkinFan.  Look at his recent posts, I think it's fair amount of evidence to make the claim of playing for teams.

    Funny how @twalaughs at this and yet it actually happened 10 miles from my house...literally this exact scene...to the letter.

    This is your GOP, they don't give a **** about people, it's profits and military they care about. If the rich are hurting then the government opens her legs wide, if it's the average person then the whore house is closed for business. Oh, you have some land that a wealthy developer can make money from? Well, now the government is against you taking away your right to your own land, making you a serf to the corporate greed.

    Nothing has changed.

     

    Talk about playing for teams. Wow. It's always the other parties fault with you, isn't it?

    I stand corrected, it must have been because Dan loved what he was telling him. He was reaching out to the fans, he was trying to bring respectability to at least some of the "entire organization".  So, if Dan wouldn't allow someone to handle a portion of the organization, what makes you think he will let someone handle the entire thing, oh wait..he has and does..his name is Bruce Allen. 

    One other thing. if we had an owner that would speak to the fans and explain why certain people were let go or the direction the organization wants to go we wouldn't have to speculate. 

    So why bother speculating anyway? Something to talk about in the off season? I don't understand.

     

    I really don't care hearing the reason why this employee was fired which is probably more professional to keep it behind closed doors. Maybe its me, I only want to see the solution on resolving a issue. Will it make a difference if Dan or Bruce speaks publicly about any issue? Not to me. No drama needed. Just fix the issue.

     

    And you're right, Snyder has been willing to let others run the show for better or worse , so it's not illogical to suggest him hire a consultant on a short time basis. To be fair, Snyder has been willing to try different things and take new ideas into consideration.
