people keep saying that the huddle will flip out no matter who is selected. one guy said 60-75% of people will hate ANY pick...
it's just not true, though. if Roman, say, or Bieniemy were picked, you're initially looking at 20% who'll be hyped, 60% who'll reserve judgment, and 20% - IF that - who'll be instant skeptics
mcdaniels is a different story for very good reasons. people just aren't going to easily get past the fact that he failed horribly in denver AND saint louis, and has never had any notability outside of being a respected company man working within, by far, the best organization in football
people get hung up on the fact that bill belichick failed in Cleveland - thus, gee, any disaster coach is probably just going to magically be belichick in his second try! bill went 36-44 at a dumpster fire - a team that literally announced it was moving cities in the middle of his final season - and clearly wasn't the main problem. in denver, meanwhile, mcdaniels WAS the main problem. and people don't want to be told that he's "grown and matured" with literally zero evidence besides the fact that he has gotten physically older.
