What Now?

Daniel Snyder and Vinny Cerrato met again late last night figuring their next plan of attack. The attempt to land three coaches in one swoop, packaged together, does not look to feasible right now. Looks like the only way they get Baltimore Rex Ryan is by naming him head coach...

Fassel, Ryan and Zorn

All of my reporting leads to this trio topping the coaching staff. They have yet to finalize deals but are the top choices for the positions and league sources said the Redskins would like to announce the coaching moves en masse, rather than individually, and that could happen tomorrow. Jim...

Continues to look like a pair of former Ravens could be perched here in a matter of time. I keep hearing that Fassel is in a great position to get this job, and when it all hits the fan that former Baltimore DC Rex Ryan would replace Gregg Williams if...

PS - Beware DLD

The other paper got something major wrong in its "story" today, if that's what you can call it that. The Redskins have never asked for permission to speak to any Giants coaches, according to numerous league sources, which I reported yesterday. And the article also gets the process wrong -...
