B-Mitch still firing away

← return to Redskins 360

Former Redskins return specialist Brian Mitchell, who was bounced by ESPN 980 earlier this year, was on Jerry Coleman’s radio show in Baltimore this week. As expected, B-Mitch didn’t hold much back, continuing to say his removal from 980 wasn’t financially related.

Mitchell was honest during his time on the D.C. airwaves – he has no use for Vinny Cerrato as a front office chief and has also been critical of owner Dan Snyder.

* On having to change his style to remain on 980: “If I can’t be me, I don’t want to be there anyway.”

* On the behind-the-scenes decision making: “I know a lot of things that went down prior to [his firing] that proves it had nothing to do with the economy.”

* On the Redskins under Dan Snyder: “What have they really done in the playoffs to make people believe they’ve gotten better? Nothing.”

* On Redskins fans: “Fans believed more what I said than they believed the message of the people they put in place to give the message out.”

* On who’s the better GM – Ozzie Newsome or Vinny Cerrato: “Ozzie Newsome, hands down. He knows football. He doesn’t look at football as being fantasy football.”
