This is the question I keep ping ponging in mind. One side of me says we should have a fire sale, weed out the left over stench from the Hurney and Fox era. Trade Smitty for a 4th round pick, Trade Stewie and Dwill since one is aging and one is always injured for mid-late round picks, and heck if the price is right, maybe even trade Cam, I like Cam but I am 100% behind Gettleman and if Gettleman really feels Cam is not the QB for this franchise and he wants to draft his own QB, I would be behind him 100% assuming we can get some good draft picks for him.
Another part of me says keep the players we have, but just hire a new coach and coach up the players we have. Yes we do have some talent. D Will is ok but is aging, Smitty has lost a step and Stewie is always hurt. Gross is 100 years old and will retire soon anyway, Cam can go from Peyton Manning to Blaine Gabbert in a matter of minutes. I have to be honest, the part of me saying we should Jacksonville Jaguars this mofo is winning out.
All these "core players" have been through two coaching staffs over the last several years and under Fox these same players have had very inconsistent seasons, and under Rivera we have flat out sucked and lost a ton of games. If we hire a new head coach, it will take a season or two anyway before we make noise. By then Gross will be gone, Smitty will be 36 and Dwill will be in the last year of his career. I say hire a new HC now, start brand new and conduct a fire sale and just do these players like we did Beason, better to trade them now for something when these players wont be around for the new HC in the next couple years anyway.
