Ummmm, yikes.

Is Keenum done as the starter for the immediate future?   I didn't watch the game but Haskins's line looks real bad.........

It was bad.  One of his picks was actually a really good throw with good anticipation.  Davis turned around and knocked the ball in the air.  Timing is off, which is understandable.

Haskins has tools, but he’ll likely see a coaching change.

Sixth season coaching and they still can’t line up correctly or get a play call off in time.

Defense had some takeaways, but a rookie QB was able to move the ball without their playmaker.

It’s beginning to get as bad as the John Beck year.

121 yards of offense against what was the worst ranked defense. 12 more penalties. There is zero discipline and horrible execution. It’s truly pathetic. 

Where is the emotion and fire? Who are the leaders on this team? They’ve preached that they have recently drafted team captains, tough players and leaders of collegiate teams. Where are they?
 

I used to give Gruden the benefit of the doubt. Not anymore. He and the entire coaching staff need to go. Along with Bruce and Dan too, which is of course a pipe dream.

Can't see Gruden surviving this season.

This quote aged pretty well.

Gruden fired this morning.

I texted two of my friends last night, “how does Jay Gruden still have a job?”   Not that changing coaches will fix this mess.

Obviously Snyder is the common thread of dysfunction here, like what Peter Angelos used to be for the Orioles.    Does he act as a de facto GM here too?

I dont think he does.

Gibbs came here for Gibbs2, and have a long talk with Danny about hiring good people and getting out of their way and allowing them to do what they were hired for. Which is the principal he built Gibbs racing on and something he learned from Jack Kent Cooke

I think the problem here, IMO, is Bruce Allen.

He definitely acts as co GM with his drinking pal Bruce. 
 

For example, Haskins went to high school with Snyder’s son. One of the many reasons why Dan insisted on drafting Haskins. He just can’t help himself.

Finally, this season has mercifully come to a close.  Of all bad seasons, this has to be the lowest point in the Snyder era.  The Williams saga and the Gruden leaked video were low class.  Hopefully the root of these is fired tonight/tomorrow.

As bad as things were this season, and they were awful, I do think they are in a better position than they were at the end of the Zorn and Shanahan eras.

Their WR core, as a whole, may be the best it’s been in a long time.  There is a lot of potential there on rookie/UFA deals.

Haskins showed improvement each game.  There is a lot of work to be done, but they may have someone there.  At least I’d go through the next two seasons with him and evaluate. 
 

The defense is not talentless, just poorly schemed.  I hope Snyder spent this season with defensive minds like Lewis to determine if there is a core with Allen, Payne, Ioanidis, and Sweat, or if they need to completely rebuild.  Add Young and Foster and you may see quick turnaround there.

Chase Young should be a beast in burgundy and gold.  

Ron Rivera is just a guy.  Not sure how you can get excited about him.  

Would have been better to get the GM first.

I’m excited about Rivera.  This team needs discipline and a culture change.

Who would you rather see them hire?

Someone who is not just a guy.  The difference between Rivera and Gruden is Rivera had Cam Newton.  Can you win with Jay or Ron?  Sure, with the right personnel and the right QB.   But that's not going to happen as long as Snyder is calling the shots.  

Someone like Lincoln Riley would have been interesting because there is upside there.  I don't see the upside with Ron.  

A good GM hire would change my mind but what good GM would want to play under Dan?  Especially if he can't even pick his coach.

I think you are underselling Rivera as “just a guy”.  In what way is he like Gruden?  Those two run their teams in a totally different manner. One is known for being a disciplinarian, the other runs light practices and was dubbed club-Jay.

If Rivera is “just a guy”, wouldn’t more guys win multiple NFL coach of the year awards? Not many guys win 15 games in a season.

As far as college coaches making a jump to the NFL, it gives me pause because those guys end up having a larger talent discrepancy than they ever will in the NFL.  When they do play teams with better talent, they give up seven first half touchdowns—zing!  There have been some successes but a lot of big time failures too.  If they did go the college route, I could get behind the Baylor guy.  He would have been intriguing.

Not many guys get a healthy Cam Newton as their QB.  Others get Cousins as their QB.  Jason Garrett won coach of the year too a couple years ago.  I don't buy into those kind of accolades.   

After Cam got hurt Carolina did nothing and had an atrocious defense this year.  Worst in the league.

Gruden and Rivera may have different styles but for both of them it comes down to who's on their roster.   They aren't innovative.   I'm more interested in who will be buying the groceries vs who will be cooking the meal.  And I'm afraid Dan will have input on compiling the shopping list.

That being said you could do worse than Rivera don't get me wrong.  You could have Shurmur or Garrett.

So they are hiring a head coach at the same time they are firing their team President?

This at all like the Buck / Dan situation where the new head coach might be more powerful than the GM?

    • I had Hays at about 15.7 tonight on his inside the park job.    He kind of let up as he approached 1B, turned on the jets when the ball got past the CF, and let up again about 20 feet from home plate when it became clear he wouldn’t draw a throw.

    • I remember being enthusiastic about Sulser, and I was very happy when you expressed enthusiasm as well back in February because I felt that I had picked a winner. Based on this post, you seem a little bit less enthusiastic, wondering if you’ve backed off your initial enthusiasm, or if I misread it in the first place? Scott Is Pitching a little bit better, but he still walks guys, Castro is either really on or really off. Sulser Was overthrowing tonight, according to Ben, And I don’t know what causes that, but I am assuming it is adrenaline, which means it’s a mental thing, so if he could calm down a bit he could be more reliable? I still think he or Armstrong is the main guy at the moment?
    • In a regular 162-game season, I often observe that our posters who tend to rely heavily on the metrics (for their determination on whether to be optimistic about the team) will wait til at least half the season is gone before they start to draw any conclusions about how the team is doing. Sometimes they'll make an earlier call if the team starts out extremely bad or good out of the gate, but usually they reserve judgment for as long as possible. To these folks, the entire season will be a "SSS". On top of that, we're making history here -- there has never been a 60 game season in the modern era. There have been a large number of rule changes in recent years, starting with challenges and video review, and culminating in the leadoff guy on 2nd in extras. We can only guess how all these factors will come together to change the dynamics of the game, and even after the season's over, the conclusions we draw will not be well-substantiated due to the relative lack of data that a mere 60 games can provide. For the folks who refuse to get excited until there's a statistically significant track record to suggest that we have something special, they may spend this entire season just shrugging their shoulders, then blink and notice that it's over (or that the O's are in the expanded postseason). To them I say: that's their right. I don't care. But I'm excited, and hopeful that this ragtag crew will be something special in 2020. I don't care if Sulser or Severino isn't part of the solution in 2022 or 2025. I'm fine with Elias continuing to make moves with the assumption that we are in rebuild mode. I'm fine with folks not even caring about this season because it's weird, and because the confluence of factors that made this season what it is probably won't happen again.  Just to fully lay out my view: I'm totally fine if Elias makes trade moves that harm the O's chances of winning in 2020, if it'll help the club long term. I hope they can win in 2020 despite that. Obviously, I will be upset if I feel that Elias made a move that's not helping us at all (either now or later), but if there's a convincing case that we can give up someone today to have a significant boost tomorrow, I still say go for it. I'm just living in the moment, taking it day by day, and enjoying our baseball team's success right now. Someone's gotta root for these guys!
