Loverro: Redskins have no defense for this kind of revenge
Question of the Day
A number of former head coaches and assistants have come back to get their piece of revenge against the Redskins.
Some, like Mike Nolan, the Redskins defensive coordinator in 1999, failed. Nolan leads the defense of the Broncos, who lost to the Redskins 27-17 earlier this season.
Others - Al Saunders, Terry Robiskie, Marty Schottenheimer - succeeded.
Former Redskins coach Norv Turner is 3-0 against his former team as both a head coach and a coordinator. Most notably, Turner’s awful Raiders team upset the playoff-bound Redskins at FedEx Field in 2005.
Turner probably had more of a grievance than any ex-Redskins coach that Washington has faced under Snyder - until now. Turner was known for his placid demeanor. Williams, on the other hand, is legendary for his temper and volatile personality. And while Turner was five years removed from the Redskins when he won his revenge game, Williams is just two years removed.
That means, in addition to the grievance being fresh, Williams still knows the tendencies of most of the Redskins players and some of the coaches. Jerry Gray and Greg Blache, for example, both worked for Williams.
“He’s coming back with probably a little bit of vengeance,” quarterback Jason Campbell said.
A little bit?
Do you really think Gregg Williams will allow his defense to lose to Jim Zorn and his chaotic committee of play callers?
