Washington could fire Jay Gruden as head coach if the teams falls to 0-4 this week with a loss to the New York Giants, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

“I’ve seen a guy walk on the moon, for God’s sakes,” he said in a quiet moment after a recent practice. “Surely an 0-3 team can come back from the depths of 0-3 and put on a nine, 10 game streak and win 10 of their last 13 games. It’s not that big of a deal, right?”

There have been some in the media calling for Gruden to start Dwayne Haskins at quarterback.

Gruden has been more upbeat this week despite Washington's 0-3 record.
