    I am on the bandwagon of Dan Snyder is a terrible owner but I give him a huge credit for hiring this guy. Very smart good move.

  3. G-Block 053 on February 19, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    He will do a great job

    Panthers fan here. Ron is a great person. Coach ehh. Gets a lot of media hype with the T-shirts’ and players love him because he allows them to be themselves. See JNo and Cam. But only as good as his coordinators. Think about this. The roster we had you guys came in to our house and from 14-0 and beat us this yr. Last year? Beat us lol. With Jay Gruden and Bill Callahan!!!! They out coached your current head coach lol. Your interim coach got him fired! The defensive guru he’s supposed to be, he was our DC as well, you guys rushed over 250yds on it and got him fired!! Thank you again for this btw lol. But just think about these things and let that sizzle lol.

    Wish Dallas jumped on Ron…..but Jerry’s hand in the pot and his need for control…will never work for any head coach.

  6. Mr. Pete 379 on February 19, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    Skins dark years are over. Ron will turn this franchise around. There are some quality players in the building already, and they have a good draft slot. Congrats Redskins Nation.
    Sincerely
    Raider Nation.
    PS: The league is better when the Skins and Raiders are contenders.

    18:42 WHY CHOOSE THE REDSKINS? BECAUSE NO ONE WOULD HIRE ME

  8. Kyle Damron on February 19, 2020 at 6:25 pm

    I’m surprised other teams didnt hire del Rio as HC. He did ok turning around the raiders he got fired for a 7-9 season and there are teams doing worse. I hope he does well in Washington

  9. ikeownscharizards on February 19, 2020 at 6:26 pm

    I am so excited, I really want this to work 😭

    NOT AN OWNER CENTERED NOT A VICE PREZ CENTERED

  11. JohnyBoat610 JohnyBoat610 on February 19, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Keep Kevin O’Connell!!!!!

  12. Brent Sorley on February 19, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    As a Falcons fan I’ll say you guys have a great hire.. the discipline, and hard nosed football team will come with him being your coach. Weather you guys win a SB. And Jack Del Rio is a very very underrated hire as well. If you guys draft Chase young, that’s a great young Ron Rivera kind of defense

  13. TheLoneGamr on February 19, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Ron ran the Panthers into the ground with archaic philosophy and stubborn inability to change with the times. He started veterans even when they played terrible instead of playing rookies who are performing better in the small amount of playing time he gives them. He is a great players coach but he is a terrible coach. Redskins fans you are in for a rough ride through the 1980s which is pretty much how Ron coaches. God help your team.

    What I respect is that Dan Syder would try anything to win.

  16. Hector Rodriguez on February 19, 2020 at 6:34 pm

    LOL Oh Dan must have too manny Drinks on New Years weekend

  17. BTS Dance Studio on February 19, 2020 at 6:35 pm

    Good guys finish first!

  18. Fms Watchdo on February 19, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    Collaborative effort = failure. Who has the FINAL say on personnel? If it’s Snyder, doomed to more failure.

  19. Jason Genova on February 19, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    Hahahaha Washington gets screwed again with another trash coach

  20. Rich752C on February 19, 2020 at 6:38 pm

    3 or 4 years? What’s your bid?

  21. General Jones on February 19, 2020 at 6:39 pm

    From a Cowboy fan I respect Ron Rivera a ton and I know for sure the Redskins are gonna be very good. Two more things expect the Redskins to bring it and expect our rivalry to get back to what it use to be so I highly doubt there will be anymore 4$ tickets at Fedex field.

  22. Markcus Vongphachanh on February 19, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Dan shaking like a stripper

  23. Christian Donahue on February 19, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    75% of this is what Dick Vermeil said when hired for the Eagles..lol

  24. Jamahri Pope on February 19, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    snyder is a curse for Redskins…

  27. Eric M on February 19, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    Wow he did get fired after a loss to us

  28. dannygitmo on February 19, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    Rivera is outstanding…with talented personnel, he gets them to level of Eagles in that division.

  29. EZ Money on February 19, 2020 at 6:47 pm

    i had to come see if he really said "happy thanksgiving" LMAAOOOOOOOO this guy lol

  30. Greg Hubbard on February 19, 2020 at 6:47 pm

    Redskins back in the playoffs next year and probably will win the division

  31. Ron Rapp on February 19, 2020 at 6:51 pm

    Congratulations Ron! I knew you would get picked up licitly split!!

  32. Ruben Gutierrez on February 19, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    The Washington Boricuas! That’s the new name!

  33. seventhsinn on February 19, 2020 at 6:54 pm

    25 year fan first time i got goose bumps in many many of years love this so much.

  34. StoneJackBaller on February 19, 2020 at 6:55 pm

    Dan looks like he hasnt slept in years

  35. Ruben Gutierrez on February 19, 2020 at 6:57 pm

    Boricuas are Native Americans! Welcome to DC. Washington’s gonna win the NFC East!

  36. Chet on February 19, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    I think Dan finally got it. I wonder who he got advice from within the league? Reports said he sought out advice from several teams.

  37. Jack Tripper on February 19, 2020 at 7:02 pm

    Wow! A WOPO story NOT about impeachment!! Fake news azzholes.

  38. RB Sayow on February 19, 2020 at 7:03 pm

    As said below it was the Redskins win against a good Carlina team that got Rivera fired. Unbelievable that he selects Redskins to Coach but I am grateful he is here in DC. Know what other players said about him and his dedication to the game of football. I can tell his words in this press conference are from the heart and he means great things to come for the Redskins. Been a fan since 1994 and I have seen the good, bad and ugly and I like to believe my being a fan is going to be rewarded with Rivera joining Redskins Nation. HTTR

  39. Greg Hubbard on February 19, 2020 at 7:05 pm

    Cowgirls are going to miss the playoffs again next year

  40. r m on February 19, 2020 at 7:09 pm

    Ron rivera and jack del Rio will be a good good coaching staff. As a kid I was a huge skins fan. Doug Williams, Art Monk, Darrell Green, etc.. but I’m from Charlotte. So I obviously adopted the Panthers. The skins haven’t given us anything to cheer for in 25 years. Guarantee that will change within 2 years. Rivera with del Rio will have the skins in the playoffs.

  41. Love4Music on February 19, 2020 at 7:10 pm

    Now, the culture will be damn good

  42. Charles Lohmann Jr on February 19, 2020 at 7:11 pm

    Welcome to Dc Ron

  43. Jordan Crutchfield on February 19, 2020 at 7:11 pm

    Redskins finally made the right move -Chiefs fan

  44. Sivia Thompson on February 19, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    Next move is to bring over Cam Newton ?

  45. jrak on February 19, 2020 at 7:15 pm

    This is awesome

  46. Chris Hamlett on February 19, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    ‘I guess there is no jersey … there’s supposed to be a jersey up here.’

    Somebody’s already been fired, I love it! Accountability ladies & gentlemen … hail to the Redskins!!!

  47. Keyboard Kathy on February 19, 2020 at 7:16 pm

    The reporter guy at 21:20 lmaoooo poor thing. Mr. Rivera only wamted to answer the 2nd question…totally ignored the first irrelevant part. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

  48. M Loftus on February 19, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    GREAT hires Mr. Snyder. HTTR!
    And Happy Easter everybody!!

  49. Gabe Zilla For Kobe 8-24 on February 19, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    Honestly as a Bills fan I’m kinda happy for the Redskins and Ron Rivera. Coach McDermott and Rivera have the same personalities and take football really seriously.

    Ron Rivera is gonna make that defense good again especially if they do get Cjase Young with the 2nd pick. I’m really excited to see the defensive line. Buffalo and Washington are gonna have a little more connections now.

  50. Brandon Keyes on February 19, 2020 at 7:18 pm

    Still won’t sign Kaep or change the logo, so f this guy and the league.
