Three biggest questions still to answer after the Redskins firing of Jay Gruden
The Redskins have moved on from Jay Gruden, but questions still remain. Here’s a look at the biggest ones that will have to be answered over the course of the rest of the season.
The Washington Redskins made a necessary move by firing Jay Gruden on Monday. Well actually, it was a “better late than never” type move. But at least they finally made the changes they needed to move forward and end the Gruden era.
With Gruden’s tenure now over, the Redskins are in a rare state of limbo. Dan Snyder doesn’t often fire coaches midseason, and now Gruden is gone only five games into 2019. That’s an interesting opportunity for the ‘Skins to internally evaluate their team and identify their weaknesses during what looks like a lost season.
Do we trust the Redskins to do that? No. Not really. But is it possible that they could figure out ways to improve? Sure, although it’s unlikely because part of the problem comes from the top.
If the Redskins are going to get better moving beyond this season, they are going to have to answer some questions. Here’s a look at the three key questions they’ll need to answer in the next 11 weeks to show the fans that they can fix the issues that have long been plaguing them.
