Our old buddy Josh McCown has a job opportunity...

The google machine says Elway and Lynch were drafted by MLB? 

I got curious and decided to look up NFL players who became coaches.

The list of guys who were good at both is pretty damn short, and the one big name we were all missing was Tom Flores.

On the other hand, the list of great coaches who played short of unremarkable careers includes some amazing and surprising names. Chuck Noll, Tom Landry and Don Shula are names I associate with coaching, but they all played professionally as well.

Should probably add I thought McCown was retired. Apparently he's part of the Texans active roster.

A player becoming the head coach of the team he plays for is something I could imagine happening in the early days of football, but not today.

The question here isn’t whether he can be a good head coach...the question is why in the hell r u interviewing a guy with no real experience while you’re trying to convince your franchise QB on staying??

Unless they are looking for a coach knowing Watson is already gunna be shipped out.

Yeah, seems unimaginable in today’s NFL. 

here is a cool list of players that also coached at the same time.   Didn’t realize some started out this way.  Largely other sports.  Same big names like Joe Torre and Bill Russell

Dan Reeves was actually a player and position coach in the NFL.  Didn’t know that.

I feel like it was more common in baseball, but Pete Rose is the only player-manager I can remember in the past several decades.

To be clear, McCown is a super smart guy. Plenty of people that have worked with him say he has the potential to be a head coach in the NFL someday. He's also gutsy and a leader, as evidenced by his playing through injury for the Eagles last year.

And if they were talking about giving him a shot at being a quarterback coach or an offensive assistant or something like that to get his foot in the door, I'd be saying "good choice".

But discussing your head coaching job with that guy who's never been so much as coached high school?

That's a little beyond "outside the box".

Josh McCown has coached for Myers Park, FWIW.  He may still be coaching there. His son goes there.

Not as a head coach, though.

From high school assistant straight to NFL head coach would have to be the greatest career path ever.

    • I am an Lance choice guy.  I think he gives Carolina everything that Cam did plus throws catchable balls.  I have to go by what the draft experts say cause I don't have the film on him.  He could be the next Mahomes or the next Russell.  We won't get Lawrence, Wilson or Fields.  They will be gone by the time the pick comes to us.  The only thing we could do is trade with the Dolphins and give them #8 for Tua.  If go 2nd rounds we would need a temporary QB if we aren't keeping TB, but would we be drafting someone like Grier if we took Trask or Ehlinger.  
    • He went to Alabama so he will be a First round.  I would take him also take him in the 2nd round.  The thing about Brady was his pocket presence and being able to slip and slide out of trouble.  Seem every time someone was about to get him he would move a foot and they would miss him and then deliver the ball to his receiver.  Not saying Jones will do that or has that ability.  I haven't seen him enough but what I have seen he can hit an open receiver and deliver a catchable ball.
