This morning’s Post runs a Sally Jenkins column explaining why Steve Spagnuolo is too good for the Redskins coaching job, and not the other way around. The whole thing is pretty much spot-on, but here’s the money paragraph (emphasis added):
It’s a bitter shame to say this, given how much it surely pains local fans, but the truth is that Redskins Park is no place for someone with a bright future. It’s too dark and dysfunctional. The phrase “coach killer” comes to mind. No good one, except possibly Joe Gibbs, has had a decent experience under Snyder, not Norv Turner, Marty Schottenheimer, Steve Spurrier, Al Saunders or Gregg Williams. Which is why the only people who seem to be realistically entertaining the job now are either those desperate to get back in the game, such as Jim Fassel and Steve Mariucci, or climbers looking for their first head coaching office.
Why the Post can run that yet Comcast won’t allow a Snyder Sucks t-shirt on-air is beyond me … must have something to do with business trumping editorial, which is understandable. Either way, said shirt is the T-Shop’s top seller in ’08 (save $5 with coupon code SPREADSHIRT03).
Update: MJD compares the Skins to a Hatian porn site. That’s why he’s writing over at Yahoo, and I’m “editing.”
Update No. 2: Snyder = Nerdstrom.
Update No. 3: Spags is no longer in the running.
