Unless you meant to highlight the "up and coming mind" phrase? In which case, I'll concede you may have a point.

So far, Cowher is my favorite candidate. I did like O'Brien but the Texans ruined my fun.

We disagree. While I don't have a preference FOR anyone, I do NOT want Cowher in our FO. He is out of touch... and has a big chin.

:D say no to "the chin"
Getting our QB back will help a lot but we still have a lot of issues to address

Players and coaches need to believe that they can be successful - they are not playing with that attitude - big changes are coming

On Total Access (NFL Network) Clinton Portis said he wants to see Cowher hired as HC in DC. Goodness, I hope that doesn't happen. [-X

He was also gung ho about Mike coming here 4 years ago. So I can now say forget Bill and feel good about it.

Had to happen sooner or later lol

Out of touch in the sense he's been out of the league for 7yrs? Definitely a valid concern.

No Cowher. He hasn't coached in years the game has likely passed him by. Give me a top-notched OC that will work with RG3 to bring out the best in him. Darrell Bevell is #1 on my last. He has done remarkable things with Russell Wilson and I feel he is a great playcaller, (Something that we are not exactly used to having around here). Then hire Greg Williams as DC and hopefully, we'll be back to the playoffs in no time!!!

Welcome to.the site! Great first post man... An opinion with supporting statements and/or facts is rare gift lmao
I'm with you on the Bevell thing... Only the interwebs (squawk fan forums) are apparently claiming he doesn't call all the plays and/or can't take the credit for grooming Wilson. Not sure where the truth lies jus thought I'd pass along the rumors.

...and yet ANOTHER record setting performance by "RG3 the third"!!!!

Bill Cowher worked for one of, if not the, best owners in football, and all of sports for that matter. I just can't imagine that he would come to Washington and be a part of Tiny's circus of an organization. Why tarnish his reputation for a three or four year gig like all, except for Marty, of the Little One's previous hires did. And besides, Cowher has already won a Super Bowl. Surely Tiny is not dumb enough make that mistake three times...oh wait...scratch that.

Out of touch in the sense he's been out of the league for 7yrs? Definitely a valid concern.

Joe Gibbs, while out for longer than Cower, had also lost touch with the ebb and flow of the game... rules changes, evolution of play development and game planning philosophy related to that, game management (including clock management). It had a negative impact on his effectiveness, from which I think he never quite caught up... and he's a much better coach than Cowher.

This would be the lamest possible hire I could imagine.

Shannon Sharpe, his colleague at CBS, says there is 0% chance Cowher leaves to coach the Redskins. I hope he's right.

He actually typed a lowercase "o", but I think he was trying to type 0. :lol:
