Greg Blache is no longer talking to the media.
Jerry Gray, the defensive backs coach, will substitute for Blache in updating the media weekly on what's going on with the Redskins' defense.
This wasn't a spur of the moment decision by Blache. League rules require that coordinators be made available to the media at least once a week so the Redskins had to get permission to have Gray serve as Blache's permanent designated hitter.
A Redskins spokesman confirmed that Gray will be the one addressing the media on Thursdays. Befitting the confused week at Redskins Park, Gray did not know that to be the case.
"How knows?" Gray said. "We'll see."
It remains to be seen if Blache will continue to appear on Comcast Sports Net after games, appearances for which he is paid.
This comes in the wake of the hiring of Sherm Lewis as an offensive consultant, and event that was accompanied by some confusion as to what his duties will be. Now we have the apparently prearranged transition of spokesman for the defense from Blache to Gray and the person getting the new duties apparently didn't know about it.
The situation is perfectly described by the old military acronym SNAFU.*

Update: Per the Washington Times, Blache will not do his Comcast appearance nor will he do a weekly spot on NBC 4 in Washington. Gray will fill in for those regular gigs as well.
