Some of these guys have been around Payton for a long long time.
Their safeties, inside linebackers and defensive line are horrific, they basically have three good OLB's, two of whom have basically peaked, and one good corner in Norman.
Don't be such pussies guys.
Do I want the Skins to hire some gump position coach who has never been a DC before?
Sure, but it's not realistic considering that Gruden is likely fired if they miss the playoffs again next year.
A bunch of people here were worried about Schwartz going to Philly and what happened?
The defense played great for about 7 games and then went to shit, and they had a hell of alot more talent on that side of the ball than the Skins do.
Spagnuolo hasn't gotten any sniffs so far either and his coaching this year has been just as impressive as Linehan's. They are probably in the same boat. Retreads who aren't young enough to be exciting.
