Following the Monday Night Football game between the Bears and Redskins, ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith called for Jay Gruden to be fired. It's still early in the season, but it's pretty clear how he feels about Washington's head coach.

The Redskins fell short to the Bears on Monday because of their countless turnovers on offense. Despite starting the season with a few strong performances, Case Keenum had an abysmal outing yesterday.

Not only did Keenum struggle to move the ball through the air, the Redskins haven't had much success on the ground through three weeks. Rookie wide receiver Terry McLaurin has quickly ascended as the team's best playmaker on offense.

During the game on Monday, Smith tweeted out "I think Jay Gruden just lost his job tonight."

Smith criticized Gruden for the way he handled the offense. To be more specific, he wasn't happy that Washington didn't double team Khalil Mack.

Here's what Smith had to say on Twitter:

Smith has doubled down on his stance when it comes to Gruden's job security. On ESPN's First Take this morning, he said that Washington needs to move on.

If the Redskins don't show any signs of improvement over the next few weeks, it's very likely that Gruden is fired at the end of the year.

Washington can finally get in the win column this season by defeating the New York Giants this Sunday.
