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.
