Rhule is in charge per the Old Guy

Plenty of old school coaches had full control. Hell, some didn't even have a GM to work with. Jimmy Johnson with the Cowboys is arguably the most successful example, but you also had guys like Bill Parcells, Mike Shanahan and even Butch Davis (granted, that was probably a mistake). If you go back further to the days of guys like Vince Lombardi, Don Shula and Paul Brown, it was even more common. 

But did any of them old guys ride an Appaloosa? Inquiring minds want to know.

It isn't new, special, unique or revolutionary at all.

The most notable recent example is probably Pete Carroll who's had full control since she took the Seahawks job, but before him Mike Holmgren had the same thing. And there are others as well, like that guy up in Massachusetts whose name escapes me at the moment 🤔

So yeah, we're not doing anything "non-traditional" whatsoever. This model is as old as the league itself. 

 

Hey who does Fitterer report to?

The other attempted QB scrap-heap resurrection took a major hit today...

...Wentz out 5-12 weeks for foot surgery.
