I will say it is rather frustrating that JR fired Hurney months ago and wasn't ready to start interviewing GM candidates in Monday. Makes me think he never planned on firing RR but wanted the new GM to "think" they had a say so in keeping RR, but they really didn't.

A lot of times the first team to interview gets the guy...ask Arizona about this.

I don't understand this take your time approach. JR has had months to vet the candidates and I just don't understand the logic.

Kelly will likely already have a job with another team before we even have a GM in place.



Exactly why you can't fault people for being angry with the team for sleepwalking their way through this process. We should have had the pick of the litter if we wanted if. Instead Richardaon sat around and waited hoping it would make sure he didn't have to make the tough decision.

I don't want a college coach with no pro experience.

On the GM search, we're not really moving that much slower than anyone else.

On the coaching search, it's not technically sleepwalking if you were never really planning to get into it to begin with.

Based on what Szoke said in the other thread, I'm beginning to believe that's the case.

Can't interview active staff on other teams until their season is over. For the G-men and the Titans, that was Monday.

this reminds of the time that really good kicker was available and the panthers called him a couple days after already being signed...good times

But why would you let Rivera twist in the wind for so long if you knew you was going to bring him back anyway? It just doesn't make sense and it's not fair to Rivera if you ask me. There has to be a motive or some logic behind all of this, we will find out soon enough though.

You do know that the new quick score offense the patriots are running was inspired by Chip Kelly right?

No I didn't. That's kind of why I said I didn't know much about Chip Kelly. I guess all we need after Chip is the Patriots and Brady.*shrugs*

"I don't know anything about this, but my opinion is superior"

I have an opinion. Is that cool with you? I didn't say I hate or didn't like Kelly. I must've been dreaming that we tried to use zone reads for OUR(not oregon) offense and sucked until we used it as just a wrinkle. If he's a leader of men and not just boys and can make the read poo work I'm all for it.

If its playoffs or bust then you might as well interview your new coach now. He is not gonna produce that season under that type of pressure. At least Chip has trust in his team...Ron does not and it shows on the field

It's not that the spread option doesn't work in the nfl. The way we've used it here just doesn't. SF,SEA,Washington, all use it and all are in the playoffs and our old coach foxy won a playoff game last year using it with The Golden Calf of Bristol
