“I thought Tony was fine,” Schottenheimer said. “He missed a few throws, but with the exception of Brett Favre everybody misses a few throws. What we want to do is keep working with the guys we’ve got and try to get Tony more and more comfortable with all the receivers.”
That has got to be the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard out of a head coach’s mouth, and I’m including everything Jerry Glanville has ever said. The Redskins suck, and as long as Marty’s the coach, they will continue to suck. Tony Banks was NOT fine on Monday night. It’s not fine to fumble snaps, forget to go through your progressions and make stupid throws. Stephen Davis can’t get anywhere because the Offensive Line has been hideous since game one. Oh, and the fact that he doesn’t seem to want to get anywhere. No one on the team looks like they’re trying. They sit back on their heels and wait for the next bad thing to happen.
How can they fix it? They need a top-flight VP of Football Operations to keep Daniel Snyder out of the football part of the team. Then, a top-flight GM to trade for good draft picks next year, and at least a decent coach. Marty is the whole thing, and is sucking wind at each position. He made no deals to get a decent quarterback, when everyone could tell that the system wouldn’t fit Jeff George. He’s not coaching his players; he’s yelling at them. He’s not making any moves in the right direction in any part of his job.
It’s just sad that the Redskins have turned into such a mess, and they’ve done it in a very short period of time. It’s just amazing, isn’t it?
