I have a feeling the GM was already consulted....or at least consultants

I’m confused did I miss the hiring of a GM?   I’ve been waiting for this my whole life and I missed it!?

Apparently the Rivers hire satisfies the Rooney Rule. I mean... I have a vowel at the end of my last name, too. They could have interviewed me to satisfy it. That’s how cheap the rule really is.

He will fulfill the Fooney requirement.

 

Ah, ok. That makes sense then. He satisfies  the rule.

According to NBC Sports channel (I'm watching the post game show now)  Rivera is just meeting with Redskins officials Monday.

 

Not that he has been hired.

 

This according to Finaly.


Shortly after he said that, someone buzzed Julie Donaldson on her earpiece and told her the scuttlebutt was that he’d be announced tomorrow as HC and that’s what the “meeting” is for. In Callahan’s presser, he already knows he’s out and that something’s going on.

Dude, you got to be careful and sure when you post stuff like this.

 

I'm just repeating what she said.  I wrote "expected to be" :P

No you didnt...

I think that behind the scenes the new GM has already been notified

Julie literally said it after the Finlay segment so who knows.  I should maybe edit title with rumor. 

 

They just put up a graphic saying "Rivera to meet with Redskins on Monday".

 

 Didn't say anything about being hired yet.

Huh? Eric Schaffer is a numbers/cap guru. Why would you make him VP of Football Ops? 


I know he’s the numbers guy. My guess is that Rivera will have so much say in personnel that Schaffer will basically be there to make sure it all works. Didn’t really say whether the scouting department would be kept intact.

I have a feeling urban Meyer will be a gm in some way.  He may not want to coach but he surely knows college players enough to draft good ones? Idk, I just saw smoke so I’m guessing a fire somewhere

That's my gut feeling too. Urban in as GM. Schafer and Kyle Smith given shiny new titles and promoted.

Ah, yeah that makes more sense. At first I thought they were going to have Schaffer making football decisions and I was like "huh"? I'm really wondering who the GM will be.

Kyle Smith and Rivera have a connection together from their days in San Diego.  Kyles's father A.J. was the GM of the S.D. when Rivera was their as LB coach.  So he probably get some say.  Schaffer named TP.  Guessing here.

Hiring a coach before the GM...man this organization never gets it right.


The insinuation from Finlay is that the GM is coming from in-house or that there has already been consultation with whomever the new GM is.

So is Rivera basically Mike Shanny 2.0 with personnel say and without Superbowl wins??

We know nothing of the specifics as this =is all speculation  at this point but this we know- Unlike Shanny Riverboat Ron is a defenesive coach and he will return us from Shanny's 3-4 to a basic 4-3!

IF Dan wants Rivera he'll be our new HC.  Simple as that.  Kyle Smith will be the new GM.

Just to put this out there. Rivera has explicitly said he doesn't want personnel control. He wants some input but not control.
