If We Go 6-10 Again, Shula , Rivera , Dorsey, Hurney all gone, Who Do You Hire and Why?

Recommended Posts

So if the nightmare senario comes true at least it would lead to a pretty interesting off season. Lets just say you are JR, the fans are getting pretty short tempered with the franchises stagnation 2 years strait after a SB and you decide to make a very bold move, clean house withthe offensive staff and probably let a bunch of veterans go (ex. Stew, R.Kalil, CJ , TD) , what coaches would you bring in as replacements and why? And who would you draft if we had around #8 pick again? 

yea I know its early for this poo but I could see this happening if the team continues to poo the bed for the rest of the season. And watching what happen to the Rams after a coaching staff overhaul has me wondering what we could look like with a totally different coaching philosophy and system installed.

Frank Reich seems pretty appealing.

Currently Philly OC.

That would require a competent GM in place to make work, however.

Jon Gruden is a popular unlikely name people throw out there, but I'd honestly love to see what he could do with Cam. Leave Wilks in as DC with Gruden as HC basically just controlling game flow and the offense while letting Wilks do his thing with the defense.

what about OC, QB Coach, GM?

Here's my worry with Wilks. 

If you promote Wilks, does he go after his own staff or keep the current staff in place?

Obviously, you can make a good argument for keeping the defensive staff in place. But would he fire the offensive staff?

Remember, these are guys that he's been working with the last several years.

I think that's part of the problem, there's too much familiarity/family vibe and its killing the team/franchise. Need to bring in some new faces from other teams in my opinion for a real change to occur offensively.

Another lazy choice on the surface but I do like Dorsey from the Chiefs, and Scot McCloughan is another solid talent evaluator and GM choice. Both are like DG though... Meaning JR won't come within a foot of them.

 

OC/QB coach... No idea. Young upcoming guys that the HC wants to bring in works for me. And I don't mean someone like Dorsey...

There's no way Wilks would keep Shula as OC. No way. Maybe if he was promoted to interim he would keep him here during the year but after that, no way.
