Thoughts on Tom Clements?


Tom Clements looks awesome. He'd probably be my first pick out of anyone that hasn't been a head coach before. But after going through what we've gone through with Rivera, I'd prefer to see someone who's been a head coach at some level.

But, out of everyone, David Shaw is honestly my #1 favorite right now.

HC - Mike McCoy
OC - Norv Turner
DC - Rex Ryan

I'm not sure what to make of Mike McCoy but all the NFL insiders have been pumping him up for bigger and better jobs since he was the QB coach here in Carolina.

Norv Turner was a bad head coach but is a great offensive mind.

Yes, Rex Ryan has always ran a 3-4 defense. But Rivera had always ran a 4-3 before going to San Deigo where he adapted his philosophy to match the 3-4 personnel that was already in place. Who's to say Rex can't do the same?

3-4 guys are not gonna want to play a 4-3. the 3-4 is more versatile and you are able to disguise coverages and bring heat better.

Ryan would switch us atleast by season 2 if not season 1 with a few FA signings and some draft picks.

Mike Mocoy Broncos OC

Bruce Arians Colts OC

Kevin Gilbright Giants OC



Add Kyle Shanahan from DC and maybe Perry Fewel from the Giants too and this is what I'd like.

No to Perry Fewel. He's interviewed for as many HC positions as Ron Rivera. I do not want to go that road again.

A lot of names. Some thoughts.

Based on Jerry's executive hiring decisions, why should we have any faith in anyone he directly hires? And if we do get a good coach, why should we believe that Jerry will treat that person well? Ditto with a general manager.

I have ZERO faith in Jerry's ability to make the two most important decisions: the hiring of a head coach and the hiring of a general manager.

The best coaches gravitate toward the best owners and organizations. They pick and choose the destination that will work for them; it's just like any other business: the top candidates are not interested in going to a bad company.

Word gets around among coaches about the 'corporate culture' and I believe that Jerry's reputation among coaches is poor. PLUS...Jerry has a reputation for being cheap when it comes to coaches. Word also gets around among the agents representing coaches.

Organizations with major, major problems call in a consultant. It would shock me if Jerry actually does what Ernie tells him.

So we can speculate about coaches but with the organization in disarray and the presence of several genuine passengers on the roster PLUS salary cap problems, the top candidates will steer well clear of Charlotte. Sad but true but I hope I'm proven wrong.

A new coach will arrive. He will say all the right things. Jerry will send PSL owners a letter at the end of the season telling us he's proud of us and that things will be better but there's no reason for optimism while Jerry is the owner.

Rooney plays a large part in that.
