    Jim Fassel front runner for Skins job?



    That's what The Sun is reporting. It's good he may get another shot as a head coach. I think he was hurt (along with Matt Cavanaugh) by being scapegoats in Billick's horrid offense for so long. I'd wish him luck, but then I'd be rooting for Snyder and the Deadskins and we can't have that!

    No offense intended but Fassel only had 3 winning seasons and a SB blowout to show for his stint in NY.

    sweet

    Maybe he'll hire Billick as OC.

After the NFL returned to Baltimore as the Ravens for the 1996 season, Unitas and most of the other old-time Colts regarded THE RAVENS as the TRUE SUCCESSORS of the Baltimore Colts!"

    He had a winning record overall in New York, which is one thing the Billick huggers point out as a reason he shouldn't have been fired.

    By the way, if Billick is such a hot commodity, why hasn't anyone brought him in for an interview in Atlanta or Washington?

    Probably because he isn't interested.

    As far as Fassel goes, the fact that Skins are talking to him doesn't mean he's a front-runner for the job. The Skins clearly don't know what they are doing. I think Fassel may get a coaching job this year, but it will probably be as an OC, not a HC.

    Have you heard of the Skins, Falcons, or Dolphins even contacting Billick for an interview when they were doing their searches? I haven't. If you talk to other people around the country, you get the feeling that Billick really isn't thought of too highly outside of Bmore. He's arrogant, and his offense has been lousy for 9 years. He'll milk his free $15 mil, and then most likely get into broadcasting.

    Billick as OC under HC Fassel would be hilarious though.

    Especially if he gets fired during the bye week.

    No. But why would they? Did anyone contact Cowher heading into this year?

    If BB has *any* sense, he will take some time off the grind, and will come back on his terms. By most standards - winning seasons, playoff appearances, SB wins - he was a good coach, and will get attention when he throws his hat into the ring.

    Those of you who think 'high flying offense' is an important factor in deciding your next head coach, consider Exhibit A: Bill Belichick, HC for the Cleveland Browns. He turned out ok with his next gig, didn't he?

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    Dig it, Billick needs a roster with overwhelming talent to compete. I've said for quite a few years that billick has squander'd more talent than any coach in football. I remember not so long ago when billick was on the hot seat but ultimately survived, some in the fan base were stating

    'if billick were fired, teams would be lining up for his services " or "billick would be unemployed all of ten minutes"


    Not that I believed the rediculous statement to begin with but it looks like they were proven dead wrong.

    Who brought Billick into the conversation or said he was a hot commodity, certainly not I although if Fassel gets another shot I feel more optimistic that Billick will at some point in the future.
    As far as why hasn't Billick been granted any interviews I would assume it's just to soon. As many here have said, he would be stupid to go back to work now when he can be play on Mr Whimsey's money for a few million. Plus I don't remember, though I could be wrong, any coach who was fired getting another job right away. It seems like there is usually at least a year's cooling off before they get back to it.

    The commented on PTI that the skins have interviewed Greg Williams (I think that's his name) four times. They don't have a clue what they are doing down there.
