Senior Bowl Win Will be a Good Look For Redskins Staff

By Ricky Allen

The Washington Redskins ended their season on a down note, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles 10-34. Since then, the Redskins have made some coaching adjustments. Those changes will be seen at this year’s Senior Bowl.

I’m going to say it: The Redskins staff need this win. These guys need a dry run like this to see how they interact with each other.While I know coaching college players is very different than dealing with the pros, this game will be about how they(the coaches) gel together.

And just to be real with you for a moment,  this game is more about the Redskins staff than North vs. South. If the Redskins staff can’t coach a team comprised of some of the brightest in college football, what will this say about coaching a pro team?

It’s a stretch, I know, but this is an important game, especially this year.

People to watch:

  • Raheem Morris-New DB Coach: Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers Head Coach.
  • Ike Hilliard-New Wide Receiver Coach: Former NY Giants receiver.
  • Bob Slowik-Former DB Coach now Linebackers Coach.

I would love to see if these guys bring a different style to the scheme.

Fans should take notes. We’re either going to see a staff that looks and feels different, or college students are about to deal with the same Redskins staff of the 5-11 season. Let’s hope for the better of the two. I usually don’t watch the Senior Games. This year, I’ll be paying close attention.
