Darrel Green has offered to help!

Postby HEROHAMO » Sun Jan 12, 2014 10:31 pm

Darrel Green said in tweets and interviews before last season that he would be willing to help coach the defensive backs.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/foo ... _blog.html


Green mentions that it takes two to tango. Meaning the Skins have not reached out to him.

While I have no clue what kind of coach he is. I do know he does have knowledge he could share to help out our team. I mean heck why ignore the man? He is one of our greats.

Looks like he wants a role choosing the players. But he did say his last choice would be to coach the secondary.

I think it would be at least worth a shot. He is one of the greatest DBs of all time.

Green is one of the reasons I became a Skins fan as a young boy. (Hence the avatar) I love DG and would love to see him work in some area with the team.

The obvious place: let him start.

Green is probably better than any CB the Redskins now have. If he's "lost a step" he's probably two steps faster than the current bunch.

(Only mild overstatement.)

Hey Welch I think you may be right. Even though he has already played 20 seasons. I heard he still runs a 4.4 at his age. Amazing for a man his age. Hes actually probably still faster then all the DBs except Hall. No joke.

I seem to remember D.Green was quoted as saying that essentially the talent was adequate (though not good) and that subtleties like initial positioning and first step would make a big difference. Couldn't understand why the Coach didn't leap at the offer. He was one of the best ever at his position, he didn't seem to be concerned about getting a title or money, what would it hurt to have him mentor the youngsters?

I've got no problem with Green getting a job as a scout or a DB coach, but I don't know if Green would want to come in at that level. The only ex -skin that hasn't been coaching already that I would trust with any real responsibility is BMitch.

He has said that he would be interested in coming on and un-screwing the ST, but he would want a guarantee that he could bee out of there by six. I'm certain he would be a fantastic ST coach, But I don't think he wants to put the hours in that a coach has to.

I understand that auto correct often picks the wrong word, but you might want to peruse your posts after you submit them. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what you're trying to say. The part of the first sentence after the comma, for example. :hmm:

It won't happen and quite frankly it shouldn't, unless they hire him to be a FT DB coach. I'm not opposed to him coaching, or even coming in to talk. But I don't like the idea of him potentially undermining the teaching of the coach at that position. In addition, being a great player does NOT make you a great coach. So there's no way of knowing how effective he'd be unless he was in here full-time and 110% devoted to helping.

I agree. And, although he was one of my favorite players, I was always a little put off by his reaction to Marty trying to coach him up. Like he was too good to learn anything. I'm not sure how good of a coach he'd be. Still, I'm sure he does have a lot he could pass on to younger players.

This is true, but all things the same, he was tutoring D. Hall this year, and Hall was on fire.

Doesn't guarantee his future success in coaching, but worth a deeper look.

Green is my all time favorite Redskin so if it happens and goes bad, I'd end up wishing it never happened.

A DB coach must be an expert in technique...

I truly don't know that DG has ever worried about technique...
