Since we start a new GoT thread for every new season, it seems as though we should do the same for football. Granted, the Snyderskins aren't as fun to watch as Game of Thrones, but almost 420 pages (coincidence, not a reference to anything that might make watching a Skins game more tolerable) with a thread title that proudly announces things like Quick re-signed seems unwieldy as well as obsolete. I suppose the first announcement will be when we re-sign Josh Johnson. Landon Collins aka Sam Spade part deux signed. DRC signed. AP re-signed. LT Donald Penn signed RB Wendell Smallwood Ereck "Dead" Flowers.
If the Redskins win 3 of their next 4 games, the drop in draft position will be the least of our worries. It will be enough to allow Brucifer to convince Lord Farquaad that the team truly is close - Callahan will have had a winning record under his tenure, and Dannyboy's pick Haskins went 5-3 as a starter, which would project to a 10-6 season record. Furthermore, he will warn it would be ruinous to Haskins development to force him to learn a new system all over again in his second year, so continuity is necessary. 2020 will feature Callahan as permanent head coach and the sheep molester will live on for another year as team President. The NFC East teams are all beatable - Wentz looks lost without DJax, the Giants and the Cowboys coaches are dead men walking. I would expect the Packers to embarrass us, but they seem to come out flat against us. 6-10 will be a disaster, but 4-12 would allow for at least a glimmer of hope that things might change...maybe.
Who is accountable for decisions at Redskins park? It is a puzzle, wrapped up in an enema, shrouded in anonymous sources trying to blame others. Coaches are inevitably taking blame for personnel choices they may have privately opposed. Everyone's employment is so tenuous that long term strategy is ignored for the sake of overpriced short term fixes. No change in coaching can ameliorate the current dysfunctional disaster. Snyder has proven time and again that he is incapable of finding a capable coach. If Brucifer Prince of Dimness picks the next coach, his primary criteria will be: 1) someone who is too weak (and /or loyal) to threaten his job. 2) someone he knows from either TB or Oakland (see reason #1). Here is my proposal: Hire Ross Tucker as Team President. He began his career here and I believe has a cordial relationship with El Dano. He is a Princeton graduate, so he is obviously quite intelligent. Since retiring, he does football analysis for radio, so he is still up on the game. The fact that he was a journeyman player means he has seen how things are run in different organizations. Ross Tucker would then hire a GM, whether it means promoting Kyle Smith, or finding someone else with a PROVEN track record of success (unlike Vinny, Brucifer, or even Scotty Mac who had terrible records when they were fully in charge). Tucker and the new GM would then hire the new coach. The Tampa Bay contingent is cleared out, from Brucifer on down. Other than Kyle Smith and Eric Schaeffer, I don't expect anyone from the current FO to remain. Most importantly, the GM is solely responsible for personnel decisions, ending the toxic culture where everyone avoids responsibility for mistakes. This is a return to the structure we had in the eighties, and that most successful teams employ - a defined hierarchy where the coach is under the GM. JKC hired Beathard because Beathard already had 2 rings. Beathard, against JKC's wishes, hired Gibbs. When JKC started handing control over personnel to Gibbs, Beathard quit rather than let his reputation be sullied by poor choices he did not even make.
I am going to predict it's either the Lions or the Bengals. With the Browns now on the upswing, one of the other perennial disappointments needs to step up to make sure Dan and Brucifers' Skins can be firmly established as the elite bottom feeders of the NFL. As bad as it is seeing Sean McVay elsewhere, watching Kyle Smith draft probowlers elsewhere whilst Brucifer, Prince of Dimness, fumbles in the dark might feel worse.
