The search started with a big letdown when it was reported Joe Barry is the new defensive coordinator. But then a day or two went by and it was not official. Then we got Vic Fangio to Ashburn and the world was once again right. Until Tuesday when we were all crushed again when Fangio ended up in Chicago and Barry finally in DC.
1- There were all kinds of defensive coordinator jobs open and only the Redskins talked to Barry.
It seems like all other hired guys got multiple looks from teams but not Barry.
2- I am going to pass on the 0-16 season in Detroit actually.
Most jump on this but I am not. That was a horrible situation.
3- Again let's make this team more of Tampa 2006-2010 or whatever.
I am tired of this continually happening. Still in shock that McCloughan was hired now and now wonder if he fits in with all the Bucs rejects in the end.
4- If it is true that Vic Fangio didn't take the Skins job because he was told he would have to keep Raheem Morris as secondary coach then Gruden should be fired immediately.
He is not fit to be a head coach. Losing Fangio also lost Donatell in the end. If Raheem is on the staff again I will be sick.
5- So supposedly they also like Barry because he is a ra-ra high energy guy. And why Wade Phillips wasn't considered.
I hate this reason even if Haslett wasn't an in your face guy either. I couldn't care less if the coach is acting like a maniac on the sidelines. Those douches usually fail when giving more responsibility.
6- If Gruden made the call this just feels to me like he didn't want a former or potential head coach around in a big spot like this.
All assumption by me but it just has this feel. Like Griffin not wanting Cousins around. And if it was part of his reasoning it will end his coaching career most likely if Barry fails.
7- This has a common feel to me.
When Randy Edsall was hired at Maryland he needed a top defensive guy and couldn't get a coach like Randy Shannon. He hired Todd Bradford from Southern Miss to everyone's shock. Guess what. Edsall had to fire Bradford after season one. Just has this feel.
