Default Think Shanahan is bringing in the Goodmans?

Redskins revamp scouting department
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on May 5, 2010 12:21 PM ET

The Redskins continue to overhaul their staff as the Mike Shanahan era picks up steam.

Rick Maese of the Washington Post reports that the team said goodbye to Russ Bolinger, their top national scout. John Keim of the Washington Examiner reports that Redskins scout and former player Donnie Warren is also out. It is Warren's birthday today.

Changes in scouting and personnel departments usually come right after the draft and when coaching changes happen, so the moves shouldn't come as a big shock.

Shanahan must have felt that he missed out on some of the injured players that were available in the draft.

He wanted to draft Clarret again but they couldn't find his phone number and rightly so they got fired.

This move has been anticipated in the news for months now and yes, he will. They were absolutely crushing the draft outside of Jarvis

What a novel concept! Wait till after the draft to fire the scouts. That way you don't go into the draft unprepared. Who would do that?

Shanahan is not the GM that may not be his decision to make.

That would suck if they're part of a package deal. Big Goodman rocked. Little Goodman sucked.

I heard on the light rail that he tried to 're-draft' Paul Toviessi last year...

Say what you guys want. They tore the draft the **** up 2006 and 2008... and hit on a starting tackle in 2007.

Hell... 3 pro-bowlers in 2006 alone.

Sure there were some good picks in there... but before they could even complete their rookie contract, two of those stud guys were on their way out of town for personality reasons.

Sure they hit on Doom in the 4th... but they missed on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounders along the way to do it. There's always going to be a good player found here or there but I was never OMG blown away by them.

I'm having trouble remembering the timeline, but wasn't Xanders promoted to GM after the Goodmans left?

I do remember McDaniels in his introductory press conference saying he was to defer to Jim Goodman on all personel matters. Wouldn't that make Jim Goodman the defacto GM no matter what his title is?

Everyone was still here and McD reported to the GMs but then Xanders got named headguy and then they left. McD then (presumably) assumed more personnel control and brings us to the current arrangement.

Rampant speculation.

"Little Goodman" (Jeff) spent years working for a law firm in the sports agency and regulation field, played wide receiver at Florida and was the scout in charge of the South East for the draft that netted us South Eastern players like Cutler and Marshall before being named the Assistant GM.

You're right. It doesn't. It DOES show that he certainly had a great background that certainly qualified him to be an Assistant General Manager. The rest is speculation, unless someone has any actual supporting evidence.
