I wouldn't mind an offensive oriented head coach... simply because we haven't ever had one and it's fairly obvious nobody on the coaching staff has a clue what to do with Cam, DeAngelo and Stewart at the same time.

I'm not beyond promoting Shula to OC.

hence the skip for McCoy haha

I understand Cam isn't the most accurate at those short throws and he may not be the most ideal fit in a WCO.

Dennison though really intrigues me. Love his resume and especially how the Texans are built. If we pull in a WR at the top of our draft and get another TE/FB type, we could run a similar offense. Most importantly, that would be the exact type I would trust to build a long term offensive line plan.


I know this is an offensive coach discussion, but I'd rather have Wade from the Texans if we get anyone.

As far as offensive coaches are concerned... Mike Sherman is a name I'd throw in there. Very good coach at Texas A&M, and has the offense of the Dolphins playing decent, even with the struggles of their offensive line.

But, like Mister Love said already, I think it's Bruce Arians > everyone else.

And by greater than everyone else, I mean there isn't even a close second... for miles.

The Colts record is a more a reflection of their schedule than anything else. There's a reason Arians "retired" from the Steelers - they didn't want him. What does that tell you?


The qualities that make a good head coach have nothing to do with particular offensive or defensive philosophies of a coordinator just like being a spectacular coordinator does not make one a good head coach.

Here's my thoughts on Arians.

Rookie QB, rookie RB, rookie WR, rookie TE, an offensive line you've never heard of (minus Winston Justice), their first year in a 34 scheme and yet they're still 7-4.

That is impressive any way you spin it.

Too soon

Even if the new GM considers him, I don't know how Jerry would feel about hiring a guy so soon from Foxy's regime

i don't understand what the appeal of him is.

what has he done? he was jake's buddy as a QB coach and never really did anything to make him better. he was and has been a figurehead of an OC in denver the whole time he's been there.

there's nothing to him. no substance other than just being a likeable guy.
