Redskins will hire McCardell to coach wide receivers

(Updated, 9 p.m.)

The Redskins will hire one of their former wide receivers, Keenan McCardell, as wide receivers coach, according to an ESPN report.

The team interviewed at least three candidates for its final opening: former Bucs receivers coach Richard Mann, former Bucs receiver Ike Hilliard and McCardell, also a former Bucs receiver.

McCardell was in Mobile, Ala., this week for the Senior Bowl, trying to find a coaching job. He also interviewed for Tampa Bay's vacancy.

McCardell started and ended his playing career in Washington. In 1991, he was the 326th overall pick -- that's round 12. He was on injured reserve when the Redskins won the Super Bowl that year and was released following the season.

McCardell, a two-time Pro Bowler, also played for Cleveland, Jacksonville, Tampa Bay and San Diego before returning to Washington midway through the 2007 season. He played the final 10 games with the Redskins and eventually retired following the season.

Though he played for the Bucs before Bruce Allen took the reins, McCardell does have ties to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He was in training camp with Houston in 2007, where Shanahan was an offensive assistant.

The Redskins don't have any more major coaching openings. Depending on how big a staff Mike Shanahan wants, they may add more positions. While the team has announced Kirk Olivadotti as a defensive assistant and Sean McVay as an offensive assistant, Shanahan could still add quality control coaches.

Zorn could interview Thursday or Friday

As the Redskins lock up another assistant, a former Washington coach could be inching closer to a new job. Jim Zorn has spoken to the Ravens' about their vacant quarterbacks coach position, according to Aaron Wilson of National Football Post and the Carroll County Times.

Wilson reports that Zorn could be interviewed as early as Thursday for the job, which was vacated this week when Hue Jackson became the Raiders' offensive coordinator.

Al Saunders, the Redskins' former associate head coach -- offense, is also thought to be a candidate and many league observers think the Ravens might simply bump Saunders up from the consultant position he holds with the team rather than add a new coach to the staff.

In Mobile this week, Zorn had nothing but good things to say about the Ravens, Baltimore Coach John Harbaugh and the prospects of working with a young quarterback like Joe Flacco.

He was my second pick, after SGT Schultz.

Schultz is the #4 pick.

Not that it matters much for coaching, but I never though much of Hilliard as a WR.

When the Skins signed McCardell during Gibbs 2.0, I was among those wondering why. But he was terrific and reminded me that a WR with modest talent and the right approach can accomplish a lot. If he can teach the things he learned along the way to DT11 and MK12, he'll be an excellent hire. Of course, if he can't teach ...

***OLD WHITE GUY POST***

Was LeBeau the chef who also did the brilliant teapot wiring, or was there another POW who did the McGyver stuff? Great show. We had the one B&W TV and we watched it as a family, followed by I think Barney Miller, All in the Family. Alice got in there somewhere. Laverne and Shirley was still huge. Jeffersons.

RIP Pernell Roberts. When I was watching Bonanza, I think it aired Sunday am, got me one hour closer to football without having to watch Oral Roberts.

Keenan was a 12th rd pick in 1991 and all he became was a top 15 catch guy of all-time. He wasn't the most gifted WR but because of work ethic, precise route running, and heart he lasted 16 years. Regardless of experience he should be an upgrade over Stan Hixon.

People question tenure and success (Shanny) and then question talent and lack of tenure (McCardell). Not you Zeke, others...

The actors who played the four major German roles-Werner Klemperer (Klink), John Banner (Schultz), Leon Askin (Burkhalter) and Howard Caine (Hochstetter)--were Jewish. Furthermore, Klemperer, Banner, Askin and Robert Clary (LeBeau) were Jews who had fled the Nazis during World War II. Clary says in the recorded commentary on the DVD version of episode "Art for Hogan's Sake" that he spent three years in a concentration camp, that his parents and other family members were killed there, and that he has an identity tattoo from the camp on his arm. Likewise John Banner had been held in a (pre-war) concentration camp and his family was exterminated during the war. Leon Askin was also in a pre-war French internment camp and his parents were killed at Treblinka. Howard Caine (Hochstetter), who was also Jewish (his birth name was Cohen), was American, and Jewish actors Harold Gould and Harold J. Stone played German generals.

As a teenager, Werner Klemperer (Klink) (son of the great conductor Otto Klemperer) fled Hitler's Germany with his family in 1935. During the show's production, he insisted that Hogan always win over his Nazi captors. He defended his playing a Luftwaffe Officer by claiming, "I am an actor. If I can play Richard III, I can play a Nazi." Banner attempted to sum up the paradox of his role by saying, "Who can play Nazis better than us Jews?" Ironically, although Klemperer, Banner, Caine, Gould and Askin play typecast World War II German types, all had actually served in the US Armed Forces during World War II – Banner and Askin in the US Army Air Corps, Caine in the US Navy, Gould with the US Army, and Klemperer in a US Army Entertainment Unit.

This (I wrote it in all caps, but then said "nah, that's kinda gay" NTAWWT), is exactly who should be a position coach.
The players that are complete naturals have no idea how to coach fundamentals or instill discipline.
It's part of the reason why MJ couldn't do squat as coach-on-the-floor and why Frank Robinson couldn't give much guidance to his hitters: too much talent and not enough knowledge of connecting the dots to the building blocks to success.
Work ethic, intrinsic motivation, and stubbornness always required.

Keenan McCardell is an excellent choice for receivers' coach. I am so happy they are putting MK, DT and MM's development in the hands of a guy who knows how to be a receiver in the NFL. The more I have thought about it since the season ended, the more I think the team should part with both Moss and ARE and start the youngsters. They were part of the old regime and they really don't fit into the future plans of the team. I also don't believe they are an optimal height for the WCO. Maybe the Redskins can grab a few unsung free agents to round out the roster including a guy with barn burning punt return abilities...

What about Pike as a 4th round pick for a year or two of development behind soup? I for one would be down for C. McCoy around the same place in the draft if he is still there.

As far as potential FA to bring in:
1) K. Dansby
2) C. Pitts
3) Wilfork (esp. if we make a transfer to 3-4 defense)
4) And maybe see if there is a starting RT.

As far as draft:
1)Okung
2)Lupati (if not there, E. Norwood to stack LB corp.)
4)C. McCoy
5)E. Olson
7)T. Holliday

"This all stinks to high hell."

I hear you, but the Dems control the government, and any issues they have are born of the fact that it doesn't wield power so much as fight over the tiny whiny kingdom each liberal represents.

Take health care, for instance.

The Dems could've passed it from day one with a majority vote a long time ago, and we would've been talking about something else.

But the old liberal bulls thought they were more important than the prez's pet issue, and fought for advantage while the GOP giggled from the sidelines.

So if you a republican, you sit back, and let the Dems get full view from the electorate.

And if all voters see is petty infighting and greedy liberal politicians, the only change we'll believe in is one-term Obama.

The Reps at least show their displeasure and throw out or dont vote when they screw up, just if the Dems would so some of the same maybe get something done that makes sense.

Now to football:

I believe that we are a top ten def this year no matter what scheme they want to use. Possibly even top 5. All with very few changes. The question is the offense. I sorta like that early draft exercise as posted earlier tonight. I dont know much about the college guys but I think we have to take a shot at a QB early (#4) and if we can get a 3 for Soups then 2 OL at 2 and 3. I just think that Shanny and Co will get us at least 7 wins this year. I think that Soups is a 7-9 to 9-7 QB, in other words a capable back-up for someone for a game or two.

P.S. I try to make all my comments without compassion unlike a lot of posters here that seem to fall in love with some players. My love is for the REDSKINS and any players who can make them contenders year in and year out with a trip to the promised land once in a while. This bottom dwelling just plainly sucks.

By the way, i heard all the coaches were at the pracitces but the top of the food chain wasn't. Did Shanny tell him to just concentrate on making money and forget about all the traipsing around and looking for the next headline splash. I sure hope so.

What I meant was he and Shanny work so well together that they don't want to split up and just keep rolling along winning div titles and a few of the big dance. and they decide that they dont want to coach against each other just whop up on all those teams that they might have gotten slighted by.

McCardell, known as "Thunder" of the part of the duel receivers, "Thunder and Lightning" with Jimmy Smith, is an excellent choice. A Blue Collar worker that needed technique to succeed and developed it. He is an example of what can be done with the right player, possessing the right attitudes and the right opportunities. Of course, the right QB, the right running game and the right offensive line, sure helped him along the way, in those years that he earned his accolades. I think that the Skins are on the right track with teachers, now I wonder who they will choose with their 1st and 2nd round picks?

Clarkson is a tool of the first order, primo chopper, but TG still good sometimes. The one when they went to the South was a cracker.

I wonder if it keeps picking up ratings if one of the big networks will give it a run. I mean it can't be any worse than CSI-Minnesota, This time the minority guy is CANADIAN!!! That show doesn't exist yet but it is the next logical leap in the series of spinoffs.
