Joe Theismann calls Todd McShay ‘irresponsible’ for comments on Redskins coaching job
Joe Theismann is not happy with ESPN’s Todd McShay over the draft analyst’s comments about the Washington Redskins coach job.
McShay was a guest on “The Dan Patrick Show” on Wednesday and had a harsh opinion of the Redskins. He said he would not advise a friend to take that head coaching job and also said he would take 31 other NFL jobs before that one. The subject came up in the context of Urban Meyer attending a Redskins game last weekend.

Washington has long been viewed as a bad job due to the perception that Dan Snyder is a meddling owner, not to mention one who can be a jerk. The Redskins have only won one playoff game this century and have had just three winning seasons since Joe Gibbs’ second stint with the team ended after the 2007 season.
