I honestly don't know why any of those guys choose to leave college for the NFL. Spurrier leaving Florida to come here, for example. Completely boggles my mind.

I think Detroit is a much better head coach job than the Skins job because the Fords are much easier to work for than Snyder and they won't intervene and mess things up with "bold genius" trades, Detroit has more talent on their roster than the Skins and even modest success would be well received in Detroit. The media coverage would also be less intense in Detroit since the Lions really share the spotlight with other teams with very devoted fans. The Pistons, Tigers and Redwings all are much more established than their DC counterparts. Even the bigger college programs in Michigan help to reduce the intensity of focus on the Lions. The University of Michigan and Michigan State athletic programs dwarf the DC area college programs. would be better also The only positive I think the Skins have over Detroit is free agents would probably rather move to DC than Detroit.

I'm so bored today...was certain there would be all kinds of news stirring. It seems to be all the same ol speculations as before. Talking about the major news outlets btw

CSN narrows it down, similar to what ESPN was saying.

That is still just a bunch of speculation by a reporter justifying a byline. Until there is attribution, it's junk.

I'm nervously optimistic that we're going to get away with this ... I was worried that Snyder might want to get back into things ...

I am glad that Mike is gone but I'm actually optimistic that Bruce Allen and the guys in the FO here can pull this together and continue to make remake this franchise

we do have some very good players to build around and we are very solid as far as the cap and the salary situation is concerned

GO BRUCE GO - bring it home

Robert has to make a huge effort to show he's got what it takes to be a future great QB - we need the real RG3 not the hyped version

So, Darrell Bevell and Sean McDermott "confirmed" so far. Interesting to see that they're considering the possibility of a defensive head coach.

If I were a control freak like how Snyder...at least was, I'd be all in the press conferences defending my name. I think the fact that he's absent is evidence that he's taken a more hands off approach.

What get under my skin now is these commentators, etc. who were once talking about how Snyder was meddling too much are now changing their stories to "well you know, Shanahan was meddling too much and Snyder should have stepped in." :roll:

How some of these writers still have jobs is beyond me...

like some of us have been saying for a while now - most of the BS that was 'reported' at the end of the season was just that

I even started to think and worry that Dan might have been a part of the problem here ... :oops:

we now see that Snyder has indeed let things go to a certain extent and the way he's letting the football guys do their thing is clear evidence that he was not interfering or meddling as so many of these reports were trying to intimate

Mike did not get it done but it was not due to anything that Snyder did or did not do ...

I just love it that all the doom and gloom guys are having it handed to them ...


onward and upward - thanks Mike, we owe you a lot but it's time to move on :D

Actually it sounded to me like Bruce was pointing his finger at Mike for leaks and such.

Who are they?

I have no clue how that would work out, but I bet he couldn't do any worse than Mike. You have to go way back to the early 60s to find a worse Redskins team.

Obrien is off the market, per ESPN's Adam Schefter... signing with the Texans...
