Antonio Pierce on the Skins

If you care about this, you've already read it, but just in case here's what Antonio Pierce said about the Skins yesterday:

Giants LB Antonio Pierce came to the Giants three years ago, signing with the team as a free agent after spending his first four pro seasons with the Redskins. So he knows a little about the franchise in our nation's capital. A franchise that continues its search for a new head coach, a search that is nearing a month in duration.

Pierce said it was not surprising that the vacancy has remained for so long, considering it was a team in turmoil during his days in Washington.

"It's tough. When I was there, we went through three head coaches, four defensive coordinators, four linebackers coaches," said Pierce. "Four of everything. And that's not good. Too much turnover. You never get the continuity you need as a team. You never feel like you know anybody in the organization because there's always a new coach, a new system, new terminology. So it's not something to look forward to. When everybody was talking about our head coach here, that's one of the main reasons I didn't want him to go. I don't want to deal with a new coach, someone coming in with a new regime, a new system and new way to work out. I'm OK with Coach Coughlin. I'm good."

This is nothing that any Skins fan hasn't felt over the past few years, and he didn't even say it in a particularly biting manner, but I still heard from some Skins fans who were miffed. Unless he said something else that I'm missing.
