07:24 AM ET 01.06 | San Diego managed to win a playoff game on the road, this one in Cincinnati against the Bengals on Sunday. [The loss] leaves three of their assistant coaches -- offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer and offensive assistant Hue Jackson -- available to be interviewed immediately and potentially hired by interested teams with head coaching vacancies. All three are potential candidates for the Washington Redskins' vacant head coaching job. John Wooten, the chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, has said that the diversity group recommended to the Redskins that they consider Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and Jackson. Caldwell interviewed Sunday with the Redskins at the team's headquarters in Ashburn.

Unless the Bengals make a serious commitment to replacing Andy Dalton, all three of those guys should being heading for the exit.

I agree. But if yesterday wasn't enough to convince Mike Brown it's time to move on from Dalton, they need to get out of there. There is too much talent in Cincy for that to happen.

I think it's too early to give up on Dalton. He doesn't have the best coaching around him. Time for that staff to get a makeover.

If we're going back to racial preferences for hiring, then we should go back to tar and feathers for the Shanahans.

Gruden wanted Dalton......plus why would they want to leave they have proably the best young players in the NFL when it comes to depth.

There's not a team Texas that is better then Cincy ,those are 2 teams that really ought to think of replacing QB,Coaches and players.

Your right to an extent, Gruden is a good Offensive Coordinator, and Zim's probably one of the best Defensive Coodinators in the league.

The QB coach is not the best - but Adequit.

Dalton do's have some of the best stats overall for a QB's first 3yrs - but them are just stats and not wins but his record is 30-18 as a starter.

It would be stupid to give up on him at this point , I think next yr. will be the telling point.

I agree with you and all those others that are saying basically; Why would anyone want to work for the Bipolar Snyder ? This is a guy who feels anything or anyone can be bought. The guy has spent more money than any other owner on hopeless causes over the last 5 years.

I totally agree here. I doubt Gruden leaves but I wouldn't be surprised if any of the other Coordinators leave for a hefty pay day.

A lot of you are talking like Cub fans, wait until next year, But you are dealing with selfish owners who only know about money and win now at all cost.

It might be time for Mike Brown to consider a new HC. I'm sure he views Marvin Lewis as being the most cost-effective option, but under Marv, the Bengals are 0-5 in the Wildcard round.

?....Marvin is 30-18 the last years, think Marvin is the one that gets them into that position to be in the play-offs ,Marvin can not make the plays its the players who have to become more consistent week in and week out and have to make the plays to win games.

How many picks did he throw yesterday ?

Keep Dalton, he is the Mark Sanchez of the AFC North.

What would be the Dalton version of the buttfumble?

Maybe an interception that bounces off a receiver's rear end first?

The buttception

Robo Call: " Hello, this is Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins. We have some cap issues and will most likely lose some of our best players in free agency. No first round draft pick this year, but that is a blessing because it will help us to stay under the cap. Our Quarterback situation is fluid, but we sell a lot of his jerseys and I like spending time with the kid and being seen with him. If you would like to join " Team Snyder," please contact us at our main office. One of our phone operators will be glad to take your call. Hail!
