Redskins Coaching Options..

Now begins what unfortunately some people call the most exciting time of the Redskins season, the offseason! Here we go again another offseason of unknown, uncertainty, and Skins fans believing next year will be a Super Bowl year.

I think Dan Snyder needs to step back and plan for his new coach. He needs to change the coaching mentality in Washington. This can no longer be the place where coaches go to get a big pay day and continually have below .500 records. Snyder needs to start by hiring a football minded GM and let him decide who will be the next head football coach. But do you really think that Snyder will give up that much control? We will see...

The available coaches are quite intriguing. Did Bill Cowher already meet with Snyder? Will John Gruden give up his ESPN gig? Will RGIII be reunited with his college coach? See who else may be available to get the next head coaching job including what I think will be a great choice, Russ Grim former HOG...

NFC East the best division in Football?

The ongoing debate that will never end is who has the best division in football. Here is my take on where the NFC East stands...

Why the NFC East is the Best:

- This division continues to be competitive. Every year all four teams have a legit chance of taking home a division championship
- The last two years have had a season finally "winner take all" and loser go home game
- The Redskins and Cowboys have arguably the biggest fan bases and the most intriguing franchises in the NFL
- All four teams really hate each other and have a storied rivalry
- All four owners spend more money than any other owner in the NFL
- Some of the most exciting and intriguing players and coaches reside in the NFC East
- The Redskins will have the most exciting off-season in the NFL

Why the NFC East is the Worst:

- The teams are just are not good enough and never can play up to the expectations each year

Whatever you think, I hope your watching football this weekend. Thanks to the NFL we have games that matter in week 17.

RGIII not the same RGIII...

Robert Griffin III started Sunday Night Football out looking like the RGIII of old with a few good runs and scrambles outside the pocket. It seemed that Redskins fans were going to get the old RGIII back and turn the season around, right? Not so fast, RGIII struggles were still evident with multiple over throws and a costly fumble that just about sealed the fate for the Redskins on Sunday night.

It seems that its going to take a lot longer to get the old RGIII back in the burgundy and gold. Maybe he is not like the Adrian Peterson, maybe he is still hurt, maybe he is not as good as we thought? Whatever it is we need to stay behind RGIII and get this season turned around. It's going to take some huge upsets, and multiple winning streaks to keep the season alive..

Nationals Trade for Cubs Outfielder

The Washington Nationals have traded for Cubs outfielder Scott Hariston to bolster their bench. With the Nationals bench struggling and the need for a powerful hitter against left handed pitching Hairston might be the perfect fit. The trade become official this morning according to Adam Kilgore and James Wagner. Check out their story here: Nationals Trade. It is not official yet who the Nationals had to give up to acquire Hariston. Hopefully this is the insurance the Nats needed to get them going in the second half of the season...
