Here We Go Again

Posted on: January 26, 2008 8:27 pm
It looks like Daniel Snyder is being Daniel Snyder again, clearing house and "rebuilding" the Redskins at the coaching level. I suppose he and Vinny Cerrato haven't realized that great teams require coaching stability, and that firing coaches left and right doesn't help the franchise improve as a whole. Great coaches are much more valuable to an organization than great players. We have seen this time and time again. A great coach can take a mediocre team and turn them into a great team, but usually the opposite isn't true.
So now Gregg Williams is out, as is Al Saunders. I doubt that either of them will be on the market for very long. We still don't have a head coach. It would seem to me that Snyder is trying to build the entire coaching staff to fit around Jason Campbell, who has been tagged "the franchise player", like Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. I'm not sure it's going to work, though. It's as if the front office is putting all of its eggs into one basket with this move. Time will tell if Snyder finally got it right, or if it's more of the same. One thing is for sure, though; we need a General Manager. Badly.
