Say we hire Abrams or Ross. What would be your thoughts if he brings in another former DC as HC in Perry Fewell?

honestly i'd be disappointed in a "oh crap. here we go again. we are the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over again hoping for different results" kind of way.

i'd be slightly more open to it, though, because of having new blood @ GM.

David Gettleman is about 10 years too old for the job in my opinion.

I couldn't deal with it. I might just commit suicide.

I have no problem hiring a defensive coach as a HC. To me what makes a HC good is not necessarily their specific expertise in the game but their management, game planning, delegation, and situational football acumen.

If you look around the league you will see that there is very little to no correlation that shows a defensive coach inhibits an offense. 4 of the top 5 offenses are lead by defensive coaches.

That being said I don't see an older guy like Fewell getting a look here or anywhere. I think they look for some young blood.

Marc Ross has been getting the interviews, very curious as to why he hasn't landed a job to this point. Im very intrigued and curious.

just what i've seen and strictly my opinion which almost counts for as much as a bowl of ramen noodle soup, defensive coaches have a tendency to play soft, ball control football where offensive coaches seem to be more aggressive in their playcalling/game managing. of course there are tons of exceptions either way.

it's more just a preference here. i'd rather have someone more aggressive and progressive in the way they coach and have a game run.

That doesn't surprise me at all. I figure at least one of the guys would be Ross and i'm guessing the second guy will be Kevin Abrams. I think the list will get a little bit longer. Omar Khan maybe a guy to watch also.

Soo, now that we have the GM position taken care of. I feel a lot better. Wonder if he will keep Rivera? I am hopeful he can do enough to keep his job. Chud is in the danger zone however. Iffy on whether I would keep him. McDerp is staying if Rivera stays. So we are almost set coaching wise.

Well, that takes care of the FO and coaching staff. Now let's get started on the draft.

Sounds familiar.

Most of us (myself included) made excuses for why Rivera interviewed 5 times without being hired. Turns out he probably just gave them the "Rivera face" for the whole interview.

Rivera, I do not want. He needs to go. If you are going to bring in a new GM then you need to bring in a new coaching staff. If not this will be 2010 all over again.

Did I miss something? Thought we just got the guy, that will find our new GM.

my thinking as well. it's not what i prefer, but i think ultimately it's best to start over there as well.

it's not taken care of.

the team hired a consultant to help with the hire. that's as far as it's gotten and probably about as far as it's going to get until the season ends.
