Redskins TE coach Embree departs for Colorado

By Barry Svrluga


Redskins tight ends coach Jon Embree spent time in the locker room after the Giants game shaking hands with tight ends Chris Cooley, Fred Davis and Logan Paulsen, making plans for dinner when Embree is able to get back to Washington after his introduction as the head coach at the University of Colorado later this week.

"It's a job I've always wanted," said Embree, a Colorado alum.

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said he meant to address his team about Embree's impending departure after the game, but in the wake of a 31-7 loss it slipped his mind.

"We're very happy for Jon," Shanahan said. "He'll make a heck of a head coach. ... It's a dream job for him. He's done a heck of a job for us, and I wish him well."

The score is whatever.

The thing that ticks me off is that this whole affair was Zorn-worthy.

The team looked unprepared, got smashed early, then played like they didn't give a big fat you-know-what and gave up by the middle of the 2nd quarter.

WTH.

Where are the professionals that are supposed to be running this show?

I saw no difference between what got rolled out on the field today, and the maulings we took at the hands of the Gmen under Zorn.

None.

5 turnovers?

A punt blocked by a dude that we cut?

And this recent Haynesworth debacle is just the cherry on top. We could have used him on the field - I don't care what anyone says. Our Dline was PATHETIC and we absolutely could have used AH.

I know. The apologists will take a dump on AH and say that Shanny needs to bench him b/c its part of building a "winning" culture.

That's some winning culture we saw today...bravo Chief Architect Shanny...

John Embree...now there's a smart guy who knows when to jump from the sinking ship...

That was painful to watch. From the defensive tackling, or lack thereof, to the 'quality' decision making of our QB. Dreadful, just dreadful and I don't blame the TE Coach for running far and fast. Just another Redskin dumpster fire.

Let's keep this in perspective. Look at this team's recent history against the Giants.

Some scores have been closer than others but haven't legitimately been in any games against the G-men since '07.

This team forgets how to play football when it sees those NY helmets.

They just can never seem to do anything right against them.

The Giants own us.

Too many losers on this team that don't expect to win. Cut bait, move on and up.

AH draws a double every time he's on the field. Makes everyone better. We do not have 3-4 personnel right now. Where is the play to the strength of the talent in all 3 areas?
HTTR!!!

That's my point. There was no difference between what we saw today and the Skins "recent" history against the GMen under Zorn.

Shanny's had this team all offseason and 13 games into the regular season - plenty of players on both sides of the ball that were handpicked by Shanny; coached-up by Shanny.

And at the end of the day, it all made you feel like the days of Zorn.

The good news of the day:

Dallas was officially eliminated from the playoffs!!!

Awesome. Sometimes Dallas misery is just as good as Redskins joy.

Now, I guess we want Dallas to keep winning so that they have a worse draft pick next year. How 'bout 'em?

Yes, let's keep this in perspective. Only 143 days till the draft and right now Skins are picking btwn 8th and 12th. So that's a LOT of bloggery yet to happen.

You got to win to re-inforce the 'winning culture.'

And so, Shanahan had better watch his locker room as pro athletes don't like dictators whose philosophies aren't earning wins.

I feel ya. You'd expect to see improvement at this point, but it seems as if the team remains stuck at square one. I can't figure out on player to single out and say that person balled out. Maybe Rak, but with Zo on the other side, teams have schemed him out. Zo for the next guy up to replace Rocky Mac when the team let's him walk next year.
