Snake Terrorizes Spineless Redskins

After practice, defensive end/strong-side linebacker Chris Wilson noticed a small snake in the locker room near wide receiver Malcolm Kelly's dressing stall.

Everyone thought Wilson was kidding, until Kelly noticed a little, thin snake slithering along the baseboard. "Somebody do something!" Wilson shouted.

Right tackle Stephon Heyer rushed to the rescue. Heyer struggled to get a handle on the slippery snake, but eventually grabbed it and held it high as players, team staff and reporters looked on.

Heyer dropped the snake as it began to move, prompting fullback Mike Sellers, standing a few feet away, to say, "Stephon ... if you bring that snake over here. What you doing? That snake could be poisonous."

Heyer picked up the snake again, brought it outside and placed it on the ground. "All taken care of," said Heyer, who re-entered the locker room and teased his teammates for their reaction to the tiny snake.

"I don't feel safe anymore," Kelly said, jokingly.

Megskin ... here it is ...
_____________________________

I was thinking about Aikman this afternoon, mostly in response to etrod (correctly) noting that, by Week 8, we will be discussing the replacement for Zorn's replacement.

Shanahan, Cowher, Gruden, etc. -- the guys with Championship bling -- would never agree to kiss The Owner's ring. They have too much pride, plus it wouldn't work for The Owner anyway, but he would have to give up his GM role (and be bored hanging out with Vinny like Rich McKay does with Arthur Blank).

Zorn has that entire ego to manage (or, more accurately, operate under) in addition to his other head coach duties. He only really took the job b/c he wanted to be the Offensive Coordinator ("I Moved My Family to Washington and All I Got Was This Lousy Head Coaching Job"). Now that he's got the gig, there is no face saving way to step down into the offensive coordinator role anyway, so if he goes, Skins lose not only a head coach, but also the offensive coordinator (not sure I remember lots of talk around the league that Sherman Smith was going to be THE next big thing as offensive coordinator ... he's Zorn's pal ... he'd go too).

Anyway, starting from the ground up, who has the diplomacy and chops to do to ego management on The Owner. It has to be someone who is slightly oily and has a little bit of football celebrity cred on his own. Mariucci should have been that guy (I agree with JLaC's early prediction), but because JLaC published it, that meant The Owner couldn't do it. Maybe now that Jasno is gone, The Owner could reconsider.

The other guy would be Aikman himself. Aikman, unlike every other talking head in Big Media (except maybe Peter King, and oddly, Florio) LIKES the Skins. Seems odd for a guy who lost his career by being sacked by the Skins, but giving props to the Skins has to mean some level of acceptance of the business model. He might just be oily enough to pull it off. You've heard his football thoughts out loud. He could figure out when to throw a red towel, when to go for first down on 4th, how to call plays. He was a QB for crud sakes.

Obviously, never having coordinated before, he'd need to have some strong coordinators underneath to run the real show. Offense? Bill Musgrove (Musgrave?), formerly Gibbs' guy (Gibbs 2.0) at QB coach left on good terms ... and turned first year QB Matt Ryan into Matt Ryan of Matt Ryan/Joe Flacco fame. Defense? He's already here. Jerry Gray.

(Sacrificing a chicken to get this past the blog moderators)
DcSween's Coaching Setup
Troy Aikman = Head Coach
Bill Musgrave = Off Coach
Jerry Gray = Def Coach

Looking at this setup I don't feel encouraged that it would work. Aikman has zero coaching experience, plus I don't think he'd actually stand up to Snyder. Musgrave was here once already, he's surely got enough intelligence to not make that mistake twice. Jerry Gray, now, isn't this the guy that we had coaching the dbacks a couple of years back when there was some "miscommunication" going on about how they were being coached and everyone was torching us with the deep ball and Grilliams had to step in and, well, un-you-know-what everything? Yeah, yeah, I know, look at our dbacks now, but still, this pick doesn't inspire confidence in me.

Howabout the following will never happen lineup:
OffCoord: Cam Cameron
DefCoord: Ron Rivera
HeadCoach: Marty Schott/Bill Cowher/Holmgren/Grilliams/Anyone smart enough to tell Snyder off.

You'd still need a real GM though, one responsible enough to pry Snyders death-grip off the wheel. People like Marty and Holmgren think they can do it all and usually do a pretty poor job. That said, I wish we could have gotten Rex Ryan, at least it would have been entertaining.

Wow, sween. Aikman? That would rattle some cages around these parts. Can't say I see that happening though.

I'm with you on the fact that no control freak super coach would ever get hired here again after the Marty experiment. Snyder just can't keep his hands out of the cookie jar.

My guess is that after an exhaustive (read: Cluster F*uck) search, the Front office would bring in a semi-sucessful pushover retread like Mooch or Fassel.

Posted by: Original_etrod | September 18, 2009 2:42 PM | Report abuse

after reviewing the 1st Q of the Giants game last night with my trusty DVR and notebook, I have to stand with my original assessment that the end around call ruined the game.

possesions was NY 10:53 & WAS 2:49, and the D still managed to stop a 4th and inches. Then the Giants started the 2nd Q with the ball on our 44, after our run, run, run sequence (we should have done that on the first drive)

did any RB have a better 1st touch than Portis' 34 yard scamper???

Haynesworth was awesome, he caused a fumble by jumping the snap count and shallaquing the center, stopped the 4th and inches play, and manhandled whoever was blocking him.

Landry missed 1 tackle, but made 4 or 5, and 2 probably saved TD's, and 1 ended the drive on 3rd and short. He did have the hit out of bounds, although we held them to 3 on that drive.

Fletcher decked Jacobs.

Randle El could have thrown that pass away, but it was still a bad call that killed the offensive rhythm.

Not much he could do in Jacksonville b/c Del Rio had dibs on defense ... my guess is that Del Rio and company were paying the man a courtesy in giving him an office for a year.

So far, however, in one game, he's turned a completely horrible defense in New Orleans into a slightly less horrible defense, allowing only Detroit to score only 27 points (though Saints only allowed 33 rushing yards ... and 9 of the 27 were field goals ... so the D only allowed three TDs ... which happened to be rushing TDs).

Alex, was just trying to get you riled up. I've never been a big fan of Westerns. My favorite Ford film is The Quiet Man.

Vegasskin - I think the reason that Zorn is afraid to air it out is he doesn't trust JC to run his offense. He doesn't seem to realize that if he doesn't let JC run the offense, it curtains for both of them.

Don't be surprised folks if the skins either lose or just squeak out a win over the Rams. This offense is as bad as it gets. I don't know who you blame it on as there seems to be more than enough talent surrounding Campbell. I honestly don't know if it's Campbell or coaching but when I watch the rest of the NFL, NOBODY has as many problems moving the ball up and down the field all game long like us. It's a waste of WR, RB, and TE talent if you ask me.

Russ Grimm for HC.

I'm still hopeful a HC change won't be necessary though.

Just another reason to miss the Hogs (as if one were needed).

They would've caught the snake, cooked it and ate it.

This is a game that will definitely define Zorn's coaching abilities. He had some chances last year against the same team as well as a few of the other lower echelon teams and failed miserably to come up with any offensive schemes or plays to justify his coaching abilities. If the Redskins do not win convincingly against the Rams and later against Detroit, then the owner must make a decision to bring in someone else at the end of the season. Squeaking by with wins against these weak teams will only prolong the agony of a disappointing season later. Losing will actually hasten the reality of real changes needed. Only winning convincingly and statistically will help Zorn. I like him, but if he can't do the job, he's gotta go! Spend those millions on someone who can recognize a weakness on the other team and continue to attack it until they adjust (eg. Tom Brady against Justin Tryon in the pre-season).
