Redskins def. coord. no longer dealing with us

    The NFL mandates that coordinators be available to the media. But the Redskins got a waiver from the league; Greg Blache will open with a statement, then turn the thing over to DBs coach Jerry Gray, who will then field questions.

    Ryan O'Halloran, a beat writer for the Times, is railing that this is a blatant violation of the spirit of the league's coordinator availability rule. Gray has previously been a DC.

    What say you? Legitamite gripe or part of the game?

    (Either way, it sucks because Blache is a pretty good guy and very, very quotable. "I would rather fall in love with a stripper than a rookie, because they will break your heart." His defense was once "like the south end of a northbound skunk.")

    The NFL is saying they granted a waiver.

    Blache is a terribly overrated coordinator.

    What is the reason the NFL is giving for granting a waiver? If they are going to grant a waiver for any ol' reason, why even have the rule in the first place?

    Maybe he can jump back into the room if he hears a real easy question. "I can take this one!"

    Odd move, especially considering the defense isn't really the problem.

    When you use the words "odd move" in connection with the Snyder-run Redskins, it's kind a redundancy.

    Now what could possibly lead you to that conclusion? :D

    Saw this on the WaPost Redskins blog:

    Vague statements like this make you wonder the hell is going on. Does Blache have a health problem? Is there something horrible going on in his personal life? I mean, really, there must be a damn serious reason for Blache to do something like this. Otherwise, this is just the latest silliness from an organization that cannot do anything right.

    Hold the phone before we rip Blache (for this, not the defense thing) - I hear there may (just may) be a semi-legit reason here.
    More if I learn it. I'm not really pushing it because I don't really care but it has come up in conversation several times tonight for some reason.
