    He was given an opportunity. I believe he still has the skills to be a Head Coach, but you cannot do it with your son as the Offensive Coordinator when he doesn’t have the skills or the expertise to do the job. Should have let Kyle go first.

    Anyway, on to better seasons.HTTR

    Good Riddance,

    Mike is arrogant to the last, citing the cap penalties mostly for the abysmal record as HC for the Redskins. Never once have I heard him say, ” I should have used the clock better” or ” Don’t know why I usurped my authority over my DC and inserted plays in critical times that then affected the outcomes of games”, or ” I should never have insisted we run a 3-4 when we didn’t have the personnel, nor a coach that had extensive experience running that scheme”, or ” I never really had RG3’s health as my top priority as reflected by my decision to keep him in the 2012 playoff game” or, ” I shouldn’t keep deflecting blame to others for my epic failures as a HC”. Finally he should apologize to Dan for stealing his 35 million dollar salary and padding the pockets of his son and all his Denver buddies he brought along for the ride. Didn’t much care for the man when he was hired, but now I really think he is lower than pond scum and am very very glad he is gone.

    All I know is the only common thread over the last two decades is Danny Boy. Too bad someone couldn’t figure a way to fire him.

    I agree with RAH. We did not hear much from Bruce Allen this season, and I thought the GM was supposed to be football man?
