I want someone who realizes how important balance is. Great D with crap O won't cut it, same the other way around. Fox would have been awesome if he didn't handcuff the O so much.

A great Offensive coordinator would be more convincing and would show the HC that his plays do in fact work. Davidson jacked that up pretty much from the beginning last year. Im sure Davidson was thinking that his hands were tied but to me, that shiz is just an illusion. You make or break yourself in this league. Either you got the talent to sit in that chair up there or you dont.

Oh god 8 years after having a DC for a HC

We go find another one

Smh. Here we go again

Richardson is not going to leave his tiny little box. Look at the 50 yard line/stadium atmosphere.

We won't be slinging the ball around until we get a new owner.

Rivera and Smith had the falling out before Rivera went to San Diego. Since his departure from Chicago and a lateral move to San Diego, Rivera has been through 9 head coaching interviews, but has not been hired.

Does that say anything except "Beware" to anyone but me?

Well, having a falling out (especially over money which iirc it was) happens. No big deal imo.

The multiple interviews is my biggest problem with the Rooney rule. There's almost no way to tell if say, 7 of those interviews were with teams that already had their HC and called him in to just to satisfy the Rr. It puts the minority coaches in a catch 22 because if they know they're just being called in to be a token interview & turn it down, it sends the signal that they don't want to leave where they are so no other team sees them as a serious candidate. If they go to the token interviews & don't get the job it sends up a (very understandable) red flag & teams don't take them seriously.

The flip side of course is that if the teams put any thought in it, they have to discount those warning signs & thus risk chasing after someone who really doesn't want to leave or just doesn't have what it takes. They waste a lot of time.

Just a mess all the way around.

Me likey. I think it's a good idea to choose a HC from within the NFL. An established veteran guy, who obviously knows football.
