Rex Ryan on the Redskins' head coaching job: 'I would take it'

Rex Ryan on the Redskins' head coaching job: 'I would take it'

In the past three days, there has been a lot of change at Redskins Park.

On Monday, Jay Gruden was relieved from his head coaching duties and offensive line coach Bill Callahan took over in the interim. Callahan will likely be an 11-game rental at head coach before the team makes a full-time hire in the offseason.

So what will the Redskins do after that? Well, it didn't take long for one former NFL head coach to put his name in the running for the next Redskins head coach.

On ESPN's Get Up, former New York Jets and Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan was asked if anyone would want the Redskins head coaching job. 

"Of course, everybody. I would take it." Ryan said

He didn't stop there.

"Here's the deal, people are going to be lined up for this job," Ryan continued. 

Ryan, of course, makes a point. There are only 32 head coaching jobs in the NFL, and plenty of coordinators and other coaches that would jump at the chance to be a head coach on football's biggest stage.

In eight seasons as an NFL head coach, Ryan's record is slightly under .500 at 61-66. His coaching career started off surprisingly well, taking the Jets to back-to-back AFC Championship games in 2009 and 2010. He failed to make the playoffs ever again. 

It's also worth noting that Ryan's brother, Rob, is currently the Redskins inside linebackers coach.

It was worth it for Rex to shoot his shot, however, he is unlikely to be in the mix of things for the job. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin is reportedly on the Redskins shortlist and was asked about the opening. There are plenty of other candidates the Burgundy and Gold will consider when choosing their next head coach as well.

Terry McLaurin continues to dominate the Eagles with an electric 75-yard touchdown

Terry McLaurin continues to dominate the Eagles with an electric 75-yard touchdown

In Week 1 of the 2019 NFL season, Terry McLaurin introduced himself to opposing defenses, specifically the Eagles secondary, as he racked up 125 yards and a touchdown on five receptions.

Since then, the rookie receiver has continued to showcase his talent, establishing himself as Washington's No. 1 target and a pass catcher that all teams should fear. Through incredible catches and strong runs after the receptions, he's shown he can do it all.

So with the Eagles coming to town in Week 15 for a divisional battle, what would he do for an encore? It didn't take long for Philadelphia to find out.

Catching a pass from Dwayne Haskins on a slant, McLaurin turned upfield, left the secondary in the dust and sprinted into the end zone for a 75-yard score to give Washington a 7-3 lead in the first half.

Not only did the touchdown show McLaurin's ability, but it also displayed the growing connection between him and Haskins. Teammates in college, the two are still continuing to get more comfortable with each other. Plays like that are a sign of things to come, something that will please Redskins fans and even get a smile out of their former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, who was reportedly in attendance for Sunday's game.

If McLaurin is doing this in his rookie year, the Eagles are not going to enjoy the coming years.

Trent Williams shares video of dog after reported fight that killed neighbor's dog

One of Trent Williams’ dogs involved in a fight with his neighbor’s dog received stitches on several deep cuts after the incident, according to a video shared by Williams on Twitter.

Redskins running back Derrius Guice posted a video of Williams' pitbull on Twitter. Williams quote- tweeted it on his account, echoing Guice’s statement with shouting emojis.

Warning: The video, which is linked here, is graphic and may be disturbing to some readers. 

The fight, which occurred in Missouri City, Texas, resulted in the death of the neighbor’s dog, Sandy. Williams' neighbors told local TV station ABC 13 that the dogs at his house are a menace to the neighborhood. "We've been here three years, and I'll definitely tell you my family and I feel like prisoners in our own neighborhood," said neighbor Cecelia Hernandez.

Williams defended his pets, telling ABC 13 that Sandy sent the dog she attacked to the veterinarian’s office fighting for its life. The procedures cost about $5,000 in medical bills.

Local police and animal control are no longer investigating the incident. Neither Williams nor his neighbors were charged.
