Heh this Teo business has been some good entertainment this evening. A welcome distraction.
I thought the topic of the day was gonna be Chip Kelly.
The Te'o story might be the biggest collective jaw drop in years.

Serious question - why the rush to hire someone ?
I think it's important to have the OC's input on draft picks (especially the mid to late rounds). Not just what the guy has done on the field, but to evaluate his personality as well. You need to be in attendance for these show games like the Senior Bowl, East West Shrine, etc.
Also current player evaluations are important as well for the obvious cap reasons. The issue of DWill and JStew come immediately to mind. The new OC will have some say in that decision.
Finally, the new OC could also help attract quality position coaches that have a relationship with him and not Ron. The longer all this goes on, the thinner the talent pool is..
So, yea. I'd like it to be sooner than later simply because I'm impatient as well..

I have to think this has something to do with Norv. It's been a week since chud was hired by the Browns, if Norv was a lock to follow him there like many reported I think it should have happened already. I think Ron and Dave are trying to lure him here.
It's purely speculative, but it's a legitimate possibility.
I've pondered that option too.

You'd rather have Norv over Jackson?
I have little doubt Rivera would prefer Turner over anyone else. Don't think anyone would question that.
Me? I'd take Norv over Shurmur, but over Jackson? That one's debatable.
I'd probably lean toward Jackson, honestly.

Fans of Whisenhunt may have reason to be happy. Denver named their new OC. It ain't him.
That said, if Bruce Arians gets the Cardinal job, he could conceivably ask Whisenhunt to tag along.
(would be awfully awkward though).
