    ...and Greg Williams is out, anyone think there is a chance he may be hired as a defensive assistant? Was he in Buffalo at the same time as Wade? Do they have a relationship? I bet he'd like to stick it to Snyder for passing him over after he accepted a raise instead of pursuing head coaching jobs a few years ago.

    He has a good defensive mind and would be a good addition if his ego can withstand it...

    I doubt we'll see Gregg here. Besides, it's not Wade's decision and it's obvious Jerry isn't too concerned about what his lame duck HC wants.

    I hope gregg williams is candid about what he thinks of snyder when he leaves!!!

    It will be funny when he lands on his feet.

    good luck to fassel, something tells me he is in a no win situation.

    Wow, ownership retaining coaches for the new coach to work with?

    Jerry is a trendsetter.

    Is Danny really going to hire a retread like Fassel?

    That'd be almost like Jerry hiring someone like Wade.

    DS and JJ are like two peas in a pod.

    Wow, I didn't see that coming. I would have sworn that Greg Williams had this one in the bag. Interesting. I don't see anyone on the Skins staff that I'd want, but it seems there will be some coaches looking for work.

    Would R Ryan implement the 3-4 in Washington?

    That's what he primarily coached as the base defense in Balt, correct?

    If these rumors are really true, I think the redskins are going to go through a MAJOR rehaul, setting them back at least 5 years.

    Everyone on this team loved gregg williams, and when he leaves, these people are going to be pissed. I will not be suprised when a lot of people are going to ask out of D.C.

    Right now we have no where near the personel needed for a 3-4, but I would imagine he will start trying to bring people in.

    But who knows, I think everyone in D.C. is just in absolute shock right now.

    Well, at least Gregg Williams will get that $1 million dollar bonus for not becoming the next head coach.

    The only good hire in that Trio is Rex Ryan.

    Rex Ryan isn't someone I want going to Washington... Actually, I would rather have Garrett HC and Ryan DC in Dallas.

    Yhea, you guys will need a complete overhaul with respect to LBs for sure.

    You'll probably need to draft a new DL as well.

    Wonder why Snyder decided to switch to a 3-4? (assuming he does)

    I don't think Fassel would be that bad of a hire.

    I can think of a lot worse candidates.

    I see Danny working. There is a trend around the NFL of veteran coaches doing well in second chances.

    The Super Bowl has two of those coaches. Then you have Tony Dungy last year.

    Heck, even Norval made it to the AFC championship game during his third stint as head coach.
