Yes and No.  They are finally looking to get younger but keeping Washington as DC is showing signs of dysfunctional culture.

Ideally I would have liked a new coach that is more analytical, but if Rivers calls the defense and Norv calls the offense I’m willing to see what happens. Hard to tell anything about the roster yet...

And we a playing in my opinion a tougher schedule. Smells like 4-12

Cam somehow gonna carry this team to 9-7, a wildcard, and a first round exit. Just enough for Rivera to justify sticking around another couple seasons and ensuring we completely waste Cams prime.

Fix the offensive line, I've been saying it since the Superbowl.  How do you not protect your most important asset and one of the hardest to find a good to elite of?

At this point it is too early to tell. Our coaching staff is incomplete and we haven't even discussed who we are keeping and who we aren't. The overblown response to Washington sticking around assumes he is the DC on game day. He is a darn good defensive line coach and works with the front seven players.  Ron stays DC and oversees the scheme and play calling. We bring on someone to manage the secondary. What great defensive coordinator would come here knowing Rivera will be calling plays and controlling the scheme. With all the DC openings, who thinks ours is a great one right now 

doesn't really matter who your DL coach is when your best pass rusher is Mario Addison. KK is overpaid, Poe is trash, Butler is a bust, and there aren't better options behind those guys.

really shows you where the team's priorities lie after we went to the SB when we had an average OL and we quickly turned around and let our Pro Bowl OG leave with only a practice squad player and an oft-injured draft bust to fill his spot.

Eli posted 9-7 and won the Super Bowl the same year.

Due to a significantly better OL, Eli had a 4.5% sack rate that year while Cam's lowest was this year at 5.8% with a career average of almost 7%. Numbers that would be even higher if it weren't for his mobility.

Forget coaching changes or firing the GM or any of that.  After such a monumental collapse to end the season, after such a promising start, shouldn't something be said or done by someone in a leadership role with this franchise to address the frustrated and disappointed fan base?  And I get that Cam was hurt, I get all that, but you can't completely fall apart in such a pathetic fashion and just coast into the off-season without some form or gesture of reassurance to the fans.  This is what bothers me more than anything.  Keep the current staff, fine, but give us some insight into why next year will be better by making no changes.

And no, unceremoniously terminating Thomas Davis, the ultimate Panther, is not how you send a message of change to the fans.

Eli went 10-6 and won the Super Bowl the same year.

Won both Super Bowls over the Patriots.

    • Darn you. Darn you straight to heck. I cannot darn you to heck any more strongly for what you're forcing me to point out. Someone literally just posted the other day a reminder thread of the greatest collapse and most epic comeback in the history of the Super Bowl. The qb at the helm for the winning team on the comeback side was Brady. If you are going to classify the qb who led the greatest comeback in the history of the most important game as a game manager and not a playmaker, I feel like the term loses all relevant meaning. I despise Brady but am forced to point out that if you don't call the qb who has that feat on his resume a playmaker, then realistically no one has the right to that term or the term is meaningless and you're assigning it arbitrarily. In particular I'm perplexed that you would put Rodgers on one list and Brady on the other. Aside from Rodgers greater mobility, what skill does he posses that Brady does not? Are you suggesting that being a playmaker is directly tied to athleticism that allows greater physical mobility and thus elusiveness that typical qb's do not possess? The presence of Manning on your playmaker list clearly says no, which leaves me scratching my head at the basis on which some qb's are on one list, some on the other. Either way, I'm highly mildly annoyed at you for forcing me to bring up Brady's comeback against Atlanta in the interest of intellectual honesty.
    • Oh my, that poor guy. No matter how lights out he has been playing, no matter how great he has been on the field, this is one of those moments when he's just like one of us: hurting and grieving. May God be with his family during their time of loss and through the tough days ahead.
    • He'd make a helluva WR and backup QB.
