According to the Washington Post's Redskins Insider blog, written by Jason La Canfora, there's a lot of buzz in Mobile, Alabama, regarding the Redskins--and none of it's good.
GMs are especially worried that Redskins lapdog Vinny Cerrato received a promotion (mostly in title). They're not worried about him moving up (they're happy about that I'm sure), but they're worried because the press release indicated that Cerrato would have "roster" control. Does that mean he's the one making cuts in August?
blahblahbl This is believed to be the only known picture of Vinny Cerrato
(For a comparison of the entire Redskins organization to Big Lebowski characters, see this post at Lebowski DC.)
La Canfora also reports that some in the league are worried that the departure of Gibbs will return Snyder to his old meddlesome ways. I can definitely see this happening, especially as evidenced by Snyder handing out title promotions to his closest fall-guy. Also, as Wilbon pointed out regarding Gregg Williams, Snyder has been told by all his players that they want Gregg to be promoted, yet it took Snyder four years to interview him four times to not yet give him the position. Those interviews are taking place at Snyder's mansion. What better way to tell the candidate who the boss really is?Lastly, two Redskins assistants are soon-to-be "free agents", including RBs coach Earnest Byner (the other is LBs coach Kirk Olivadotti). Byner is immensely popular in the Ravens organization, especially with GM Ozzie Newsome and former owner Art Modell (who still has a voice). If the Skins don't get a coach in and guarantee these men employment, Byner would happily make The Drive up I-95 to M&T Bank Stadium (where he is in the Ravens Ring of Honor as a sign of appreciation from Art Modell for smoothing the transition during the move to Baltimore). I almost can't wait for Danny Snyder to once again make The Fumble.
