    Corn Wash needs a workout buddy like Jeffery and B.M. on the d line. Without someone like Rod or someone like that to learn under I can't see this guy developing a ton.

    I'm guessing CornWash not doing it right often enough, as well as Shea also not developing is a large portion of the reason the DL coach is gone. Same for the LB coach when you look at how Bostic and Greene played. If the plan is to get the Def younger quickly, then you'll need someone that can quickly teach the young guys and get them up to speed.

    I agree w/SFB, seems they could use a guy on the team to hang w/in the offseason and work on some technique.

    Agree - if the coaches aren't capable of coaching up a player, then a vet needs to step in and make a difference. CW has a lot of upside, it would be a shame to waste it.

    Some guys have all the physical gifts in the world, but just aren't coachable. Some guys are as perfect fundamentally as you can ask for, but they lack the physical attributes. In fact, every major professional sport is littered with guys like these. It's only those select few that are gifted to have the physical attributes and are willing and able to be coached into the fundamentals that find a role in professional sport. Washington is in the former category, and sometimes it just takes a year or two for the light bulb to come on, and obviously, all too often the light bulb remains dark. Time will tell, but it's guys like this that you use those late round picks on. Ya never know what you're gonna get.

    Very true. We've seen plenty of these that's for sure. Now that the crappy coaches are gone (?), perhaps someone will flip the switch on for him.

    Webb, the Bears former LT was like this, had all the measurables to be a good starting LT, just didn't have that extra push to want to be better.
