Clayton: Redskins 'Can Bounce Back Quickly'

Posted Jan 6, 2014

ESPN NFL expert John Clayton recently appeared on Mike & Mike in the morning to discuss how the right pick for Washington Redskins head coach can mean a quick turnaround.

The Kansas City Chiefs may well be the rallying cry of the Washington Redskins this offseason.

After finishing 2-14 in 2012, the Chiefs moved swiftly to clean out the coaching staff, bringing in deposed Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid to take charge.

Despite a disappointing exit from the playoffs on Saturday, the Chiefs did the impossible, becoming the first team in NFL history to win its first nine games in a season after finishing at the bottom of the league.

Now the Washington Redskins look to follow suit, cleaning house after a disappointing 3-13 season, and looking to reload quickly with a talented roster for 2014.

NFL expert John Clayton from ESPN believes the Redskins have the pieces in place to reload quickly if the right head coach is installed.

"I think they’re probably going to interview more people than anybody else," he told ESPN's Mike & Mike. "But I think if they come out with the smart, right move and have more of a balanced personnel on offense, with the quarterback that they have, they can bounce back pretty quickly."

Part of what makes Clayton confident in the Redskins system moving forward is the reallocation of personnel power in the general manager and the front office.

By putting faith in the executives that specialize in personnel, the organization gains some much needed stability.

"I think it’s starting to stabilize because of what happened [last Monday]," Clayton explained. "Bruce Allen, the general manager, came out and showed that he’s in clear control and is going to give a very structured, smart type of head coaching search.

"I think that’s the big thing that this organization need, stability. They had four years with Mike Shanahan and you thought things were stable, but unfortunately things took a big step back this year with how everything went with RGIII and how bad the defense was."

Clayton listed a number of names to keep an eye on in the coming weeks, but specifically mentioned that Allen will look at college coaches and seek offensive minds.

"What I think you can see from Bruce Allen is pretty much he is going to go over the gamut of the types of coaches."
