However, The Sports Junkies don't expect things to get better for Gruden and Washington any time soon.
"I would have moved beyond him a year ago, definitely this year," John-Paul Flaim said Monday. "Because my guess is, next year's gonna be more of the same. He's gonna be a Marvin Lewis-type, he's Norv Turner part two. I just cannot see Jay Gruden ever leading this team to a championship, and that should be the goal."
"But you bring in an unknown, you think it's bad now, you could really whiff."
"I'm almost willing to guarantee you there's no way they get more than five wins next year," he said. "They don't have a quarterback! If you think this was bad, next year's gonna be ten times worse."
"It's gonna be awful. Because Colt (McCoy)'s will play like three games, then his neck or something will get hurt, or knee will break or something weird will happen, and then here we go (again)!"
"I'd fire (Gruden). It's fine, it doesn't matter, because the next guy you bring in, he'll be unsuccessful too," said Cakes. "As long as (owner) Daniel Snyder's in charge, it's impossible for this team to succeed. It's impossible!"
