Yep, unlike "Awh Shucks Norv". He was happy with just about anything. Geez. It was 6 years too long on his contract IMHO.

Redskins Rock & Rule....purely subjective, of course, but it's in my DNA.:)

Amen Ideagirl.

I got so tired of all the media saying how raw a deal he got in DC, like 7 years wasn't long enough to produce a winner - which he never really came close to.

Norval always wanted to be a Cowboy... and he always will.

His departure was definitely belabored far too long.
Sean Taylor was one of a kind, may he rest in peace.

guys, don't forget SOS is the guy who wrote in some survey to new NFL coaches for a question that went like, "the most under-appreciated aspect of your offense": "touchdown passes" :)

Even better, it was in answer to "the most underrated aspect of the game."

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette of Sep. 22, 2002:

The eight new NFL coaches were asked to identify the most underrated aspect of the game. Dom Capers of Houston and Marty Schottenheimer of San Diego said, "Special teams."

Not surprisingly, Steve Spurrier of Washington said, "Touchdown passes."

The others:

    Bill Callahan of Oakland: "Character, heart and desire."

    Tony Dungy of Indianapolis: "Amount of weekly preparation needed to get a team prepared for Sunday."

    John Fox of Carolina: "The concept of team and points."

    Mike Tice of Minnesota: "Tackling."

    Jon Gruden of Tampa Bay: "Offseason program and great assistant coaches."

I'm with you, learnnew--I love our coach's answer!

I like the pouting, but would love to see more emphasis on discipline, special teams and fundamentals (particularly on the d-side / tackling).

I would've gone with you on that TH... fundamentals (cause it seems like when you get paid 6-7 figures your brains go on vacation and you need to relearn 12 years of football all over again) and tackling. I have never been so disgusted when I watch the people not run through the Skins, but through their limp wristed tackling.

They haven't tackled well since Pettibon was the DC. When you got hit by any of the front seven, you didn't stay standing up. Period. Now? Even when we stop people for losses, a lot of times it takes a gang to tackle someone cause they keep getting away.

I know we went through tackle drills every practice.

Amen, feelings exactly.

Although I love Lavar as an impact player and his attitude towards winning and the organization....he too would rather go for the "big hit" than a sure tackle and sometimes you see him flying by while the opponent goes rushing by into the secondary....and on to score.

Guess my feelings are that although I love the Skins scoring points and SS's emphasis on "passing TDs"....I know that defense wins championships and can wait to return to the day of a run-stuffing, pressuring defense that dares an opponent to try and beat us either on the ground or through the air....creating turnovers, sacks and just making life a living hell on the opposition's offense.

Anyone remember the Skin's last shut-out?
