Jay Gruden on QB plan: “We don’t have one”

Some days, the jokes, they write themselves.

Washington coach Jay Gruden was asked on a conference call Wednesday about the team’s plan at quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

We don’t have one right now,” he replied, via Nora Princiotti of the Boston Globe.

While that could be an organizational motto around his place, the mundane reality is that they have a quandary.

Between Case Keenum being injured and benched last weekend, and rookie Dwayne Haskins looking something other than ready, and the return to health of safe option Colt McCoy, there is no easy answer.

Gruden will likely make one later this week. Whether it helps, or whether the organization has a plan at all, remains to be seen.

  1. Jay was probably expecting to be fired and wasn’t bothering with game planning, he should call in sick on Sunday and let Bruce Allen coach the team he put together.

  2. on the subject of ownership having a clue
    Everyone associated with the Redskins including the media, fans, players and coaches are all looking around at one another chuckling and saying
    wtf is that exactly

  3. I can’t believe Daniel Snyder has allowed Gruden to loiter the hallways for yet another week
    This just proves how dysfunctional this organization is it’s sad and pathetic and very sorry to see

  4. My advice would be to start the punter at QB. At least the defense won’t be sure which down the punt is coming.

  5. “We don’t have one right now,” he replied, via Nora Princiotti of the Boston Globe.

    Game’s shaping up to be a bloodbath, anyhow. Gruden’s doing his best to ensure that winds up being the outcome.

  6. Wish lynch would trade cj. Beathard for josh norman we need another corner and skins need a qb

  7. Dan Snyder should get rid of the GM first and let him make the decision on whether to get rid of Jay Gruden. The Redskins need a GM that can evaluate good coaches and can tell whether it’s just the talent level within the scheme. Bruce has to go, before Jay.

  8. Trade some picks to Minnesota and get Kirk Cousins back. At least they could win some games and he’s not doing anything in Minnesota.

  9. Washington coach Jay Gruden was asked on a conference call Wednesday about the team’s plan at quarterback for Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
