Read Jake Russell’s comprehensive report for full details.

Conspicuous by his absence on the list is defensive coordinator Jim Haslett. How did this even happen? I tweeted my thoughts on the matter:

Of course players chimed in with their well wishes for the coach and how great it was to play for him.

It’s all very sad.

For the fan base.

… that has to endure countless more empty promises, a nearly complete re-building, and has experienced about as much success as the Betamax – and poignantly, that’s about when they last had the swagger of success too.

All we have is each other at this point #RedskinsNation. Hail.
