Jim Haslett is reportedly drawing interest from BUF but is not expected to be among top choices.
I'd like to see another year (or two) with no changes in the front office.
I think a little continuity would be nice.
I really hope we don't lose Kyle.
Brown is one guy in the front office I don't want to lose. He has been the one and only competent employee it seems.
I've never understood knee-jerk firing people as a solution to a problem.
I've never understood why swapping for a new guy to try something different. That's throwing spaghetti on a wall. Neither will stick.
When a boss has a well-chosen deputy who is struggling, you help him work out the problem before even thinking of firing the person. It's expensive to replace an executive. The new person needs more time to resolve problems than the incumbent would have, and firing someone is as likely to raise suspicions about YOU as to fix a problem.
No one knows the talent better than Haslett. As long as there's no infighting among coaches (See Eagles), the Redskins are better with Haslett than without him.
There are many questions about coach Raheem Morris. He is obviously a talent who must have learned something as Bucs head coach, but that team went into a 10 game losing streak last year. He was fired because he could not pull them out of it. The worst performing unit on defense is his unit. One of the players he endorsed has been suspended. That's who you want for DC? :confused:
I want to see Morris prove it with success by the secondary before promoting him to DC.
Washington's 2011 and 2012 free agents have done so well, that I give Shanahan benefit of the doubt for how Meriwether, Jackson and Ced Griffin would have performed as safeties. Thus, I'm judging Haslett and Morris by how well they deploy talent available. I think they've been fairly creative given the limits of Reed Doughty, Madieu Williams and Jordan Pugh. These aren't stars, or starters. They are back-ups. I don't think Williams would be here if Meriwether and Jackson were healthy.
I'd let Has go for a HC job, but would lock him up here otherwise. Lets take a longer look at Morris. If other teams see him as a talent, they'll want to interview him for a DC post when this playoff run is cone. That will tell a lot.
We are Redskins fans. We've seen Daniel Snyder and Joe Gibbs churn coaching talent. We know what that does. We see what it's doing to the Browns, Jets and Eagles. We got a problem? Work it through. Getting better is better. Different isn't always better, and it take two or three seasons to tell.
