Will Jay Gruden be the Next Joe Gibbs?

Posted by: AustinSkins on Saturday, August 16th, 2014

For over twenty years, Redskins fans have been longing for the leadership, stability and track record of success that their beloved team enjoyed under the leadership of Joe Jackson Gibbs. Since then, fans have endured a struggling franchise under the leadership of too many coaches to mention. None of them had a winning career record in Washington.

Gibbs came to Washington as a relatively unknown offensive coordinator from San Diego, after the team had endured another miserable 6-10 season under Jack Pardee.  During Gibbs’s first 12-year stint, the Redskins only suffered one losing season and went to four Super Bowls, winning three of them. But when Gibbs arrived, he was just an unknown protege of Don Coryell, assisted by seasoned coordinators in Joe Bugel, Dan Henning and Richie Petitbon.

Over the years, Gibbs forged a team with a family identity. He demanded accountability, but his players loved him and he seemed to get the most out of everyone on the squad. While the team boasted a handful of standout players, their success was due largely to innovative play calling and tight cohesion in all three aspects of the game. Gibbs introduced the largest offensive line at the time, and mixed up a power running game with creative pass plays from his “Air Coryell” days. Petitbon was a master at disguising defenses and making halftime adjustments. Special teams held its own, and Mark Moseley set a field goal kicking record. All the way around the Redskins were a balanced, powerful team that routinely built leads that were insurmountable.

Impact of the Redskins Rookies

Posted by: hail2skins on Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Trent Murphy

The 2013 NFL season was, frankly, a huge disappointment for the Washington Redskins, especially after having made the playoffs in the season before. However, the NFL Draft is always a chance to improve, and can act as an NFL teams guide as to how the upcoming season may unfold.

The Redskins would have ended up with the second overall pick in the 2014 draft, however, the Robert Griffin III trade meant that St Louis had possession of the premium pick. This meant that Washington was without a first round pick, and would miss out on the premier players in the draft. Despite this, they decided to trade back with their second round pick, moving down 13 spots and picking up an extra third round pick.

Trent Murphy, OLB, Stanford

With their first pick, the Redskins picked up one of college football’s best pass rushers in Stanford outside linebacker Murphy. Playing in one of the toughest conferences in the Pac 12, Murphy led the nation with 15 sacks, becoming one of the key players on one of the nation’s toughest defenses. He will be able to play straight away, and will come in primarily as back up for Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan.

Morgan Moses, OT, Virginia

Moses came into the draft in many first round mock drafts, and was a surprise slider in the draft. The Redskins were the lucky recipients, picking him up in the first round. Moses is a solid tackle who will compete with Tyler Polumbus for the starting right tackle spot, as well as backing up star left tackle Trent Williams in a great value pick.

Spencer Long, G, Nebraska

Some will complain at the lack of value in this pick (Long was projected as a seventh rounder), however, Long provides much needed depth on the o-line and could potentially compete for a starting job.

The Best Of The Rest

Washington picked up some cornerback depth in the fourth round with the selection of Clemson’s Bashaud Breeland, who fits the current NFL trend of being a bigger back (5’11’’, 197.) They also added offensive weapons for RG3, with Tulane wide receiver Ryan Grant coming in to add to a bolstered receiving corps. Along with Grant, the Redskins also took Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk, who was one of college football’s most electric playmakers. If he can earn the second spot behind Alfred Morris, the Redskins could have an excellent duo of second round picks in the backfield this season.

Morocco Brown Moves On

Posted by: hail2skins on Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

Morocco Brown is leaving the Redskins to become the VP of Player Personnel for the Cleveland Browns and a lot of Redskins fans are wondering why.  Brown’s responsibilities included scouting free agents and Redskins opponents.

There are a lot of fans who believe the Redskins did well in signing free agents this offseason.  So again, why would you let him walk.  Why is a guy, who was praised by GM Bruce Allen, allowed to just leave?  Why didn’t the Redskins elevate him.  Below are Bruce Allen’s comments after the firing of Mike Shanahan:

“I see some people who have to be given an opportunity to succeed,” he said. “I think Scott Campbell running a college draft will be as capable as any personnel director in the NFL. I know what Morocco brown can do in free agency. I’ve seen the grades of the player he’s given in free agency. To blame them, I think, would be unfair to not give them an opportunity to succeed.”  Source

I would sure like to hear the justification for letting Morocco Brown walk after making statements like the above about him.  Granted, Brown had interviewed for several GM positions and wasn’t offered any.  We mus also take into account that he has been here since 2008 and he doesn’t really have anything to support why he should be retained.  There is however, the comments made by our current GM Bruce Allen and the work that was done this offseason in signing free agents.

The question now is who will replace him?  Recently hired Doug Williams, maybe A.J. Smith who has been working part time with the team?

In my opinion the Redskins need to find a young, very good talent evaluator and provide him with room to grow.  If what Bruce Allen said about Brown is true, then we just let one get away.
