I'm thinking something similar to HF-but with a bit of a twist as far as the perspective to use when approaching the "design philosophy".
Look at the current Redskins the same way you would an expansion franchise.
Hire someone as GM with a credible track record as a GM-or, HC, OC, DC-and tell him-pretend this is a new franchise and you're operating uncapped-and your goal is to create a competitive team. New scheme, new coaching sraff, new philosophy if necessary; whatever direction you think is best. You're given a minimum of three seasons with a no-fire contract-and total control of personnel and football operations, no questions asked. Go for it.
Then step the hell back and watch-it, in my estimation, would be better than the way things are done now-and, who knows it just might produce some remarkable successes.
