    This team is a bunch of FAT BASTERS and the coach will make them even BIGGER FAT BASTER LOSERS………

  2. Brian Wymer on March 7, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    as a skins fan, Rivera wouldnt be here if Bruce Allen was still here. With that being said I’m happy we have a new fresh start with a coach who gets players to work even harder.

  3. DavEyOne SlimObi on March 7, 2020 at 11:47 pm

    When will the redskins change their name to the Antonio Brownskins?
    Asking for a friend

  4. Allan Hernandez on March 7, 2020 at 11:48 pm

    NFC east is up for grabs and Ron will swoop in for the grab!

  5. Boromir Of Gondor on March 7, 2020 at 11:50 pm

    This is a step forward for The Deadskins

  6. London Xiong on March 7, 2020 at 11:51 pm

    HBCU… Really. They teach people to dance? Think not! Stephen a smith is a sellout boot licka

  7. Michael Stith on March 7, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    He’s there at the time with the personal we have on defense him and Jack del Rio will make a big difference

  8. Jack D on March 7, 2020 at 11:52 pm

    Snyder will find a way to fck this up. He’ll probably insist on timmy from south park as the new general manager….

  9. Blayne Schaaf on March 7, 2020 at 11:53 pm

    RedSkins Nation we back quick turnaround could be even better if alex smith can return

  10. Gold Silverstone on March 7, 2020 at 11:53 pm

    Max is a jackass

  11. Kambui Bomani on March 7, 2020 at 11:57 pm

    His success as a coach predicated on the emergence of cam newton. Hes not the greatest x’s and o’s guy imo. Hes had the opportunity to have quality first round picks and has done wonders with them. He has the same situation in washington that are currently untapped. His coordinators are gonna define the true success of the team.

  12. robwill106 on March 7, 2020 at 11:58 pm

    Let’s be real ………whatdoes Kellerman have to offer opinion wise or even insight when it comes to anything besides the squared circle?

  13. Big Daddy Rikka on March 7, 2020 at 11:59 pm

    The Skins have an opportunity to be back finally. People forget what the redskins were back in the day. They are one of the true sleeping giants in the NFL. Let’s hope Rivera can wake us up

  14. Google Censors Youtube Content on March 8, 2020 at 12:01 am

    Maybe some day we will be able to applaud the changing of the team’s racist name. For now, the racism is so deeply ingrained in our Culture of Terrorism that most fans don’t even begin to comprehend the issue.

  15. P Gaven on March 8, 2020 at 12:01 am

    I applaud the Redskins but feel sorry for Ron. What a terrible pit of an organization he went to. He could have had his pick of where he wound up. Reminds me of a friend of mine who "settled" for a burnout who wound up cheating on him while he was deployed. Waste.

  16. TheRealObamacide on March 8, 2020 at 12:02 am

    what a great idea, go ask the NBA guy what his thoughts are on an NFL team’s coaching hire. ESPN dipshits. Rivera is vastly overrated as a head coach.

  17. Woody Da Pimp on March 8, 2020 at 12:03 am

    Redskins going 6-10 next year confirmed

  18. MotherLoveBone on March 8, 2020 at 12:04 am

    Redskins vs Cowboys Thanksgiving night game 2020

  19. Gabe Baby on March 8, 2020 at 12:05 am

    This guy Max Kellerman is very disrespectful toward my Redskins

  20. Raijaee 92 on March 8, 2020 at 12:06 am

    I’m glad for the Washington football team. They got a solid guy.

  21. shawn seawood on March 8, 2020 at 12:09 am

    Great pick up for the Redskins.

  22. JOjeda on March 8, 2020 at 12:09 am

    Max Kellerman the worst owner in the NFL is Dean Spanos

  23. Lerato Seotsanyana on March 8, 2020 at 12:10 am

    Shut Max… You look like you have a bad breath every time you talk about my REDSKINS.

  24. D.Wagner on March 8, 2020 at 12:11 am

    Who is the girl on the panel? Looks like she got stung by a bee right on the lips 😂😂

  25. Carl Prutzman on March 8, 2020 at 12:12 am

    Yes…Paul Hartman….you are so right!!!!!

  26. Justin Glenn on March 8, 2020 at 12:15 am

    If the Giants hired Rivera this clown would be tap dancing on stage about how GREAT and unprecedented Rivera is.

  27. Hill Top 54 Jungle on March 8, 2020 at 12:19 am

    The Skins have to return back to relevance. These past decades have been miserable.

  28. Joel Williams on March 8, 2020 at 12:21 am

    Applesauce is fruit gravy! (Bear Down)

  29. chris leotti on March 8, 2020 at 12:21 am

    Stephen a Smith sounds more intelligent when he is not yelling-just my view.

  30. John P on March 8, 2020 at 12:22 am

    HTTR. !
    Bruce Allen out !
    Ron Rivera in !
    Its a late Xmas gift !!

  31. Latrell Pryor on March 8, 2020 at 12:23 am

    What needs to be considered as well is that Rivera didn’t have a healthy Cam Newton in two of these past three seasons and still had the Panthers playing hard

  32. Josh Carlson on March 8, 2020 at 12:24 am

    Who’s Stephen A Smith to offer any opinion on football?

  33. AttilatheThrilla on March 8, 2020 at 12:24 am

    And now Jack Del Rio as defensive coordinator 😳

  34. Luis Larios on March 8, 2020 at 12:24 am

    Give max kellerman back to boxing

  35. Google Censors Youtube Content on March 8, 2020 at 12:26 am

  36. michael smalley on March 8, 2020 at 12:28 am

    Someone please tell that idiot Steven A that Mike Tomlin is not a hof coach. Far from it I think Steven A is smoking too much weed! Lol

  37. jesse Talbott on March 8, 2020 at 12:30 am

    I think Max is salty that his favorite team didn’t get Ron Rivera.

  38. Zack Hurwitz on March 8, 2020 at 12:30 am

    That defense is going to be lit. On paper they’re as talented as any unit in football, especially in the front 7.

  39. Drew Freed on March 8, 2020 at 12:31 am

    2 time coach of the year in the last 6 and a Superbowl appearance on top of that?

    Yeah, not exceptional at all 🙄

  41. Max Palmer on March 8, 2020 at 12:32 am

    All cam had to do was jump on the ball and recover it during SB 50

  42. Trey Savage on March 8, 2020 at 12:36 am

    They give us good credit for the hire then they 💩 on US as usual 🤦‍♂️..we goin turn some heads in 2020..HTTR if u ain’t wit US now don’t coming riding the 🌊

  43. London Xiong on March 8, 2020 at 12:37 am

    Can’t hardly look at his face. Stephen please… Stephen a smith is a sellout boot licka

  44. Jermaine Boone on March 8, 2020 at 12:37 am

    Can Max even try to hide is hatred for the Skins. Which is why I came even watch First Take!

  45. Dan Miller on March 8, 2020 at 12:39 am

    Firing Bruce Allen was the first priority. Now the Redskins have Ron Rivera there’s hope again. Provided Snyder stays out of the way and is patient.

  46. Max Palmer on March 8, 2020 at 12:39 am

    I like River boat Ron

  47. billy nelson on March 8, 2020 at 12:41 am

    He will be a huge bust out in 3 years

  48. Ethan Myers on March 8, 2020 at 12:43 am

    Notice you said good man before good coach, exactly why he was fired, this isn’t college we’re not making men, you should be made, Rivera didn’t win a chip plain and simple

  49. justus gatewood on March 8, 2020 at 12:44 am

    I think that Ron Rivera would be a great coach on the Washington redskins because I think 🤔 he was a great coach on the panthers.

  50. dabmaster420 puff puff pass on March 8, 2020 at 12:44 am

    Cam to the Skins
