Bugel to announce retirement

Joe Bugel will announce his retirement today at Redskins Park, the Redskins have said in a statement released by the team.

It was widely expected that Bugel, 69, would retire after the season, given the changes that were looming at Redskins Park after a 4-12 season.

Thanks Buges for helping the Skins win some super bowls and thanks for coming back and trying to help them get there again. Kudos with the work you did with a line that probably couldn't have on a junior high team this year. Enjoy your retirement!

As someone who lives up here and has been to many a philly game (baseball, football, hockey – never actually been to a sixers game) Red, it would be a CERTAINTY, that you would find the trouble you “wish” for. I agree with you, their fans are horrible. Not every single fan of course, but most philly fans like to claim that a few bad apples ruin their rep. Well, let’s just say that if the typical fanbase of a city/team has 1% bad apples, then Philly has at least 20%.....even the chicks will throw down. The worst thing is that the 20% who are “bad” are actually proud of it. They will actually razz little kids if dad brings them to their first game and they so much as wear the other team’s hat. Pretty sad actually. Most of the folks I work with won’t take their kids to an Eagles game until they are at least 14, and they are Eagles fans.

Don’t wear any skins gear you cherish to an Eagles game, because it WILL get ruined. Period. And if you are looking for it, you better bring 10 friends…. I would love to be able to wear my skins stuff to games up here, but unfortunately, it’s just the smart thing not to. It is ridiculous, but it’s just smart. Shouldn’t be that way, but it is.

Haze,

From living in South philly myself for 4 years I would add to your statement "The worst thing is that the 20% who are “bad” are actually proud of it. " The other 80% are as proud of it as well, they are just not gonna act.

The 'Skins won't be the same. I'll miss seeing his old, wrinkly, puzzled face on the sideline. I just think about how much worse the OL would've been w/out him. Cheers to you sir.

With Blatche still on the payroll...I see Blatche giving a good full analysis of every defensive player out there to Haslett. Letting him know who needs more needeling then others.

I see good things for this defense. Especially OSackpo, AMontgomery, Gohlston, And HAynesworth.....

4th Floor beating the WaPo by ... wait ... how does 4th's post post-date the new thread ... which wasn't there at 10:20? Anyway, not surprising. What would be surprising, now that they've hired Haslett, would be if Blache has NOT (yet) retired.

Bigfoot, the batteries and CP's mom are separate incidents. CP's mom got a beer spilled on her (and she responded by punching the offending beer-spiller* in the nose). Also, the batteries are separate from the booing of Santa Claus.

Ahhh ... maybe that's it ... maybe Joe Bugel wanted to retire BEFORE the team announced that they had signed the new offensive line coach.

Buges has been superior his whole tenure in D.C., an old-school, hard-nosed football guy who got results and churned out an awful lot of superior offensive linemen (nice to see Grimm up for the Hall, but how about Jacoby???). Best of luck in everything Coach!

Usually when I roll to the game I go with a group homies.

Have they ever thought: "If I were to lay hands on this guy, is it a chance he could be strapped?"

They should, just sayin'.

From the Svrugla article linked at the top ... "I could tell you," center Casey Rabach said, "but it'd be all bleeps. I mean, he loves to use the F-word a lot."

I hope that Mr. Bugel considers a career transition to joining us as a poster up here.

He's actually joining Carroll's staff in Seattle. Not sure why, but I don't think Shanny even made a run at him.

The other problem with Philly fans is that they make sure the odds are in their favor. You will not be in a 1 on 1 fight. It's typically 15 on 3. Don't act like a tough guy or they will jump you. Roll in a large group and try to bring that crazy guy. Every group of friends has that crazy guy. He's kind of annoying at times and may get you arrested but you'll need him there if anyone starts any crap.

Well, they might be scared to actually fight, but unless you sit in the very top row, you WILL get all sorts of food/drinks/snowballs, whatever thrown down at you. Guarantee it.

Unless they are playing the Mets, or a playoff or otherwise important game, Phillies games can actually be a good time. Much more of a “family” atmosphere than Eagles or Flyers games. But I still wouldn’t wear an O’s or Nats jersey. Still a chance that it would get ruined with ketchup/mustard/beer. Just wearing an opposing hat won’t draw much, unless it’s a mets hat.

Your Starting 3-4 line could look like this
Jarmon, Jeremy, DE, 6'3", 277
Montgomery, Anthony, NT, 6'6", 330
Alexander, Lorenzo, DE, 6'1", 297

Al, when Haynes is one of the best DL in the league, why is he not starting in the 3-4 alignment??

Reason I am pulling Haynsworth out is due to word that he does not like playing NT and I would use 3-4 when he is on the sideline at the oxygen machine.

You Starting 4-3 line could look like this:
Carter, Andre, DE, 6'4", 253
Griffin, Cornelius, DT, 6'4", 303
Haynesworth, Albert, DT, 6'6", 350
Orakpo, Brian, DE, 6'3", 260

Your Starting 3-4 line could look like this
Jarmon, Jeremy, DE, 6'3", 277
Montgomery, Anthony, NT, 6'6", 330

Your Starting linebackers in a 4-3 can look like
OLB-?
MLB-LFB
OLB-RMac

Your Staring linebackers in a 3-4 can look like
OLB-Orakpo
ILB- LFB (not ideal for the spot though)
ILB- ?
OLB-RMac

Posted by: alex35332 | January 13, 2010 10:19 AM | Report abuse
I like your thinking. But it might be even easier than that.

Starting with your 4-3:
Carter..Griffin..Haynie..Orakpo
Wilson..LFB...Rocky

bring in LoAlex for Wilson and have
Griff...Haynie...LoAlex
Carter...LFB...Rocky...Orakpo

Then you can slide LL up into an 8 man front and have a 3-5*

*Championship!

Freddie, playing Fletch and Rocky at ILB would leave us completely vulnerable to the rush up the middle. And if you thought Haynesworth hated the scheme this year, just wait until he's nothing more than a $100 million decoy in a 3-4 at NT.

Draft some LBs that could play ILB and a NT, THEN make the switch. Until then, stay with the 4-3 or just have a couple 3-4 packages.

This is what I am thinking, I think we should have a 3-4 package next year, If we keep Monty, he is a solid fit for that NT spot, right size at least.

We still need linebackers with size and speed.

he was poorly coached by REdskins PR in his media response(s). It unfairly exposed him as being disloyal to Zorn.
The real non-class move was Snyder or his henchmen (Donovan) not stepping up and saying they approached to him.. He didnt go behind Zorn's back and initiate the interview. The Front Office kept quiet and let him squirm on the hook.

Guys,
I'm seeing Anthony Montgomery being tossed around alot. Unless, Haslett finds a way to motivate the lazy SOB, he could be gone. It appears we should have cut him and kept Antonio Dixon (the U). Word on Montgomery has always been that the sky is the limit for him, but he had horrible desire and work ethic. If he had Golston's heart he could be a top tier DT...

I wouldn't count on him at all and his contract may be up anyhow.

Before you go all "Mighty Moral" and sh_t you should know that I wouldn't carry it into the stadium or arena... I couldn't if I wanted to.

Yeah, I have "protection". A few forms actually. Do I carry one with me at times? You bet your ass I do.

When you have a few nice things and people know this, they're literally gunning for you... I make sure I'm "good" when I go to certain neighborhoods or when I'm going out for a night on the town. People are plotting on you more than you believe, and where I'm from it's trendy for someone to take what they want by any means necessary.

And again, before you go "Mighty Moral" you couldn't understand what I'm talking about because you're not from where I'm from nor live the life I live, and that's not to say that I live illegit at all.
