Here I was thinking it was Jon Gruden
So a new head coach has come to town. It’s the TV guy, Jon Gruden right? No it’s his brother, Jay. Hey close enough. The real head coach, Jay Gruden, guided the Bengals offense to the playoffs as offensive coordinator. Wait, isn’t that the offense of accident-prone Andy Dalton? Accidents in this case are interceptions.
Anyway, the train wreck of the Skins season is finally over. If the Bears hadn’t chocked away their playoff chances (at least two of my kids wouldn’t have left the Packers receiver wide open for a game-winning touchdown), than at least the Skins could claim that two of their wins came over playoff teams.
Hey, we beat San Diego, a playoff winner. I bet they are kicking themselves over losing to the terrible Redskins. And we beat the Bears (8-8) and a bad Oakland team.
What was good about the Skins this year? Robert Griffin wasn’t the magician he was a year ago but he was still fun to watch. Alfred Morris gave it his all.
My MVP of the season is Perry Riley Jr. Thank you Perry Riley Sr. for sending this guy to DC. He’s a keeper. What a fine season for the former LSU linebacker.
Again I thought Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul were really the same person as twin tight ends.
Aldrick Robinson is a legitimate long ball threat. And Jordan Reed (hope your concussion gets better) is a dynamite tight end.
Pierre Garcon had a record-breaking season mainly because the Skins quarterbacks had no one else to throw to.
Ryan Kerrigan should return and he’s a fine linebacker.
Does the new Gruden have his work cut out for him? Darn right. That defense was dreadful, especially on third down. Special teams were amazingly bad but improved as the season went along. I would say slightly improved.
The good news for Gruden is he only has to get to four wins next year to show improvement. That’s not hard to do in the NFL
