Is this really the conversation between Daniel Snyder (Redskins Owner) and 2 time NFL Head Coach of the Year award winner, and Super Bowl Champion Ron Rivera?
Snyder: Hey Coach, how are you?
Rivera: Great Mr. Snyder, thank you again for the opportunity to work for you and this fine organization!"
Snyder: You’re welcome Ron, we are happy to have you…BUT here’s the deal. I really love this Haskins kid and he’s gonna be our QB of the future. I know he only completed %58 percent of his passes and had a 2-5 record. But this kid is our future and I want you to move your family here to Washington and bank everything on this kids shoulders. Sound good to you Ron?
Rivera: So let me get…
Snyder: OH!..and one more thing Ron. I just fired my G.M. and I won’t be hiring a new one until after the draft. But I’m keeping on some of the previous staff for you to work with until we make some more changes…got it.
Rivera: Sounds great Dan! (Honey! let’s start packing!!! We’re heading to Washingtion!!!)
Ron Rivera is known as a bit of a gambler. Hence the nickname. But I don’t think he is a fool.
Maybe they decide to stick with D.Haskins. But it is unimaginable for me to think that Ron Rivera accepted the job in Washington with the stipulations of not having the possibility of drafting a new QB with the #2 pick. The closer to the draft we get, the more of Tua being in play for Washington is harder to over look. The Cardinals laid the blue print just a year ago.
Which then leads to the very real possibility that the Lions will have a player fall to #3, that many do not think is probable.
The odds go up for Chase Young falling to the Lions, the less you think Ron Rivera is a fool…
