Talk of Gregg Williams returning to the Redskins in any capacity is just plain stupid. Next caller, please.
Snyder could have promoted Williams in 2008 when Joe Gibbs left. Instead, the owner passed because Snyder knew Williams would be too autonomous. Snyder instead hired Jim Zorn. Think how ridiculous that was.
The worst thing would be Snyder and Williams lying to themselves and forgetting the past while pledging to work together. It wouldn't last a day. The circus would be four rings around Redskins Park and come January at most you'd see Williams departing.
Now, Williams is a good defensive coordinator and could absolutely help this team. He's a great motivator, maybe too much at times because such intensity burns out players and coaches. In the short term, though, Williams does remarkable things, like leading Cleveland to a 5-3 mark last season as an interim coach. But even the Browns, who should have fallen to their knees begging Williams to stay, knew they couldn't live with Williams long term and promoted offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens instead.
Williams is just like his mentor Buddy Ryan – too bombastic. It works in the short term, like the final weeks for Cleveland, but isn't sustainable.
Saying the Redskins should sign Williams is just nonsense to anyone who understands anything about this team.
