Said that Zorn asked that as soon as a decision was made, to let him know.

BA says he won't get into the talk of who the successor is.

Wants a leader to lead these men, a leader that is passionate about football, the skins etc. He keeps saying "Passionate". (I guess staying "medium" wasn't passionate enough lol).

He wants a committment from the players, the likes of which they've never made before. Same from the Coaches.

Assistants fate will be decided by the new coach.

Wants to find a coach that will lead the men already on the roster.

BA won't speculate on the new HC. he's dodging questions like a pro lol.

wants to supplement the talent already here.

says he can't evaluate the talent in a 3 game window...wants to look at past seasons, games etc. No final grades will be given on any player right now.

So far he announced Jim Zorn was relieved as head coach. Then he took questions.

-He met with assistant coaches. The next head coach will determine their fates.

-They will be aggressive with looking for a head coach. Someone passionate about the Redskins and passionate about football.

well he certainly talks well.no appearance by shanny,but the day ain't over yet.a high point for me was the way he talked about getting the current players to play better as opposed to the disaster 2009 season.
i think a lot of players are gonna be gone,starting with portis.

That's not connecting for me either. It's alright, I'm listening on the radio.

Saying he wants a HC that will demand a higher level of commitment from players, expect players to show a higher level of commitment to team;

HC will pick his own coaching staff;

Will be "aggressive" in their search for the right HC;

"Changing the way the team has done business in the past"

IH Brave

He also keeps saying, the status quo is not good enough. They are going to change the way they do business.

Shows image of Blache walking towards Redskins Park. Darn I was hoping he would be walking away from it.

He keeps talking about leadership and wanting someone who knows the Redskins history. The whole time a clip of Shanny on the sideline w/ Denver is being shown.

All depends on CBA .

Once again says teamwork + talent = success

Believes this team has some talent that will step into a new role.

I heard earlier that Redskins1 landed in Denver at 8:40 this morning. They thought Shanny may show up and surprise everyone. Didn't happen though. lol

Here are some interesting points I think he made:
∑ Assistant coaching staff to be determined by the head coach.
∑ Going to be very aggressive to find a coach to lead these players.
∑ Biggest asset may be current players who are not playing to their potential.
∑ Best way to improve a team is by addition, not subtraction.
∑ Premature to come out with any final grade on the players.
∑ I want someone who embraces the Redskins history. Itís about leadership.
∑ This team has talent and has leaders.

That pretty much sums up his press conference. Excellent post.

other than a few george halas quotes,this is the same B/S we have heard the last 3 weeks.and i don't care who the next coach is but portis is a cancer that needs to be removed.i'd rather see ganther and mason as 1 and 2 than have CP back.

That's because he is out here in Colorado.

I'm assuming he was in Denver or on his way back.

decent pc with no real new news. he did say "do you want to ask if the coach has certain initials?" its has to be shanny
