http://www.redskins.com/news/article-1/Redskins-Promote-Matt-Cavanaugh-To-Offensive-Coordinator/a3faea0e-4663-4b52-886c-a92f844729b9

Once again, the Redskins decide to promote from within instead of going outside for a vacant coordinating position. Don't know much about him, but he seems to have done a good job with Kirk Cousins. He was also the Ravens offensive coordinator when they beat the Giants in the Super Bowl... What do you think about this, Redskins fans?

He must have really made leaps and bounds between 2014 and now. Was a deer in headlights as Chicagos QB Coach in 2013-2014. Many argue that Bears team was worse than this years 3-13 squad. Everything was a dumsterfire with Trestman and his staff but this certainly is a surprising move to me given how little impact he made on Cutler and the offense several seasons ago.

Gruden's essentially our true O.C. and will call plays. This "promotion" doesn't really mean much.

Came in to post this.

After that season, I never thought he would get anything higher than another (bad) teams QB coach position. I don't see this ending well, however.

Are we just completely discounting the work he did this past year with a QB who was actually willing to learn and perfect what he was teaching?

You are assuming Cutler wasn't "willing to learn"?

Compared to Kirk's willingness? Yes.

What do you know about Cutler to make you come to that conclusion? Every single offensive coordinator he's ever had has spoken volumes about his intelligence and willing to learn an offensive system.

Hell, here's a story about it, with the main source of enthusiasm coming directly from the mouth of Cavanaugh

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000169383/article/jay-cutler-is-borderline-brilliant-bears-qb-coach-says

Quote:
Shortly after he was hired earlier this offseason, Chicago Bears quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh sidestepped questions about Jay Cutler's viability as a franchise quarterback. Cavanaugh believed it was premature to offer an opinion before meeting Cutler and dissecting the game film.


Now that he's had a chance for a full evaluation, Cavanaugh is "very impressed" by what he's seen and heard from Cutler.

"He's borderline football brilliant," Cavanaugh said Tuesday, via the Chicago Tribune's Dan Pompei. "I think he gets it. I think he knows the game. I think he knows offensive schemes. I think he knows defenses."


And more to the point:

Quote:
"I'm excited for him, and I think he's excited," Cavanaugh said. "In the short period of time we've been here, I've seen him embrace what we're trying to get done and want to be a big part of it.


I'm not some big Cutler supporter. I think he's possibly the best QB the Bears have had (which isn't saying much), but its definitely time to move on. But I'm sick and tired of people questioning his toughness and willingness at the QB position. His problem is decision-making and awareness, end of story.

I don't think Cavanaugh is a great hire.

I admit, it was my general impression of Cutler (via games, media reports, etc.) that gave me the opinion he wasn't dedicated to perfecting his craft. Looks like I may have been wrong if that wasn't just coach-speak you posted. Regardless, Cavanaugh has done wonders for Kirk. He is more responsible for Kirk's improvement in decision-making, patience in the pocket, and accuracy, than any other coach in Washington. As long as Gruden continues to call plays, I have no doubt that Cavanaugh will be an asset.
