    Default Well here we go, Defensive changes?

    LaCanfora is saying Gruden is breaking up the entire staff.
    Wonder who's up next?

    Well, if you're gonna do it, this is the way.

    Let the new DC bring in his own guys. Since it's his ass on the line.

    Just gotta pick the right DC now.

    The NFL dot is saying Barry and at least 1 other assistant. Next few hours should tell the tale.

    As always, if LaCan puts it out early there may be some discrepancies in the 'facts'

    Now, it feels like Christmas morning.

    I wonder if we'll stay 3-4, or go back to 4-3. Which to this Ugly American, seem to fit the talent we have a little better.

    Looking good.

    I know we don't want to rush things, but I want whoever the new guy is to have as much time as possible to go over the roster, determine scheme, and assist in targeting available free agents.

    Might need to have Murphy and Kerrigan beef up if they are going to be DE's in a 4-3.

    Going to a 4-3 even with the current roster would be an improvement.

    Naw. Can't fire McVay unless Gruden goes too. Which ain't happening now.

    If he gets hired away, fine.

    Hate to revel in another's misfortune, but ... thank you, Jay Gruden. Thank you for either deciding on your own your friend Joe Barry isn't the right man for the job, or for listening to Scot M., and agreeing he's probably right.

    Either way, it's not hard to imagine there's anywhere but up to go from here:

    28th total defense
    19th points per game
    32nd 3rd down
    25th passing
    24th rushing

    Washington announces Joe Barry, three other coaches won?t return | ProFootballTalk

    It wasn’t quite the whole defensive staff, but Washington coach Jay Gruden has made major changes today.

    Gruden announced today that four assistants won’t be back for the 2017 season: defensive coordinator Joe Barry, defensive backs coach Perry Fewell, defensive line coach Robb Akey and strength and conditioning coach Mike Clark...

    Betting that this was Gruden call all the way. He is a smart man and when he highlighted the three biggest failures this year after the Giants loss - 2 of them were defensive - inability to stop the run and inability to stop 3rd down conversions. That was a tipoff to me that he would fire Barry. I hope he gets some credit for making those tough decisions because I guarantee you this was not mandated by McCloughan.
