It's not a speech so much as it is perspective. Comparing us with the Pats must be a joke, because I cannot take that seriously. There is a world of difference between what they've put together and what we've got. We maybe have 3-4 people on our entire team that would make the cut in New England, and that probably includes coaches.

And regardless of what other big name coordinators are or are not doing, the fact remains that Richard Smith has proven nothing but being ineffective as a DC. The verdict is out on the Sherman/Kubiak hybrid offense, but it's not looking good and, in fact, has proven to be vanilla and without flexibility.

The Redskins have how much money tied up in DC and OC? Does not seem to be doing them any good and those two coordinators were high on a lot of peoples list, including the DC for either the same position here or HC when Kubiak was hired.
Starts with the owner. The Redskins have done jack crap since DS bought the team.

Please do not misunderstand, and think I like Richard Smith and his schemes because I do not. Also, I was not comparing our talent to that of New England, my referance was to the coaches they have had. They seem to keep getting hired as head coaches and what has any of them done since leaving the nest?

My point, not so precisely put, is that big name coaches do not neccessarily lead to success. The assistants have to work with the HC and have some sort of philosophical agrrement versus differances (I.E. Kubiak and Sherman, Richard Smith, frank bush).

To take it two steps further, what are the odds Dunta is the only player with a poor opinion of Mario? Unlikely, since they do get to see the film.

The fact of the matter is, I think many of Mario's supporters here would see more flaws if he was wearing a different uniform and playing exactly the same way.
