Far as a HC I think if the position became available Cowher would come back to the NFL for it. Loaded with talent on both sides, great DC, hands off owner, and a fanbase that is just waiting for the next step now.
At any rate replacing Gary right now is a pipe dream. Replacing Schaub is a pipe dream. No matter how much I believe those two need to be replaced, both are going to be what the team has to work with as a whole next year.
Back to offseason needs, whatever they decide to do with Reed is going to leave a spot down at either LBer spot and upgrading either with a healthy Cushing could make this one of the, if not the , best defense in the NFL next year.
We also need a legit #2 WR next year. I think we can get away with Martin or Jean in the slot. I like Martin's quickness, but I like Jean's size and willingness to go after the ball. Walter should be cut. Posey showed late flashes but his injury is going to be a concern going into TC. I really don't care if they make a move in FA or draft but it needs to be addressed.
Either way I really do this would be a good year to move up if they really think a player from either spot is going to be available. They will have an extra third and aren't going to likely make a big FA move and this could be the way they could get a player that might take us over the top and get to the AFC title game and beyond next year.
