I was actually being sarcastic. I've stated many times that this is the way the NFL works. HCs hire their friends, people they know they can work with because they have worked with them in the past. There is usually some connection between coaches & their staffs.

I like him. So far the only knock on him is that Belichick's nestlings don't usually do too well when they leave the nest. But he isn't morbidly obese like Weis or Mangini were, so I'm thinking there may be other differences as well. He's not as unexperienced as McDaniels & it may be the homer in me, but I think we have a better organization behind him than what the Broncos had. You don't fire Mike Shanahan & replace him with some kid.

We're not replacing a Mike Shanahan. We're replacing Kubiak.

Default Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs

I ultimately leave this up to O'Brien but I'd like Hue Jackson to at least get an interview for the OC position. I think he would match up well with O'Brien.

I'd also like to see either Ken Norton Jr. or Steve Wilks get interviewed for the DC job.

I'm not saying these guys need to be hired but I'd like them to at least get a look.

I'd like Horton (DC, Browns and AZ previous 2 career stops) to get a look as well since the Browns fired Chudzinski.

Possible DC? San Fran fans supposedly love Tomsula.

Quote:
Houston Texans: Houston is focused in on Penn State's Bill O'Brien and a deal is likely to come together in the next day or two, sources said. It's possible he reaches out for 49ers defensive line coach Jim Tomsula as a defensive coordinator (Tomsula could get a head coaching interview at some point as well).

Default Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs

Quote:
A league source said some teams (there are currently six teams without a head coach) are beginning to do background work on defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. He could emerge as a candidate in the next week. As per league rule, coaches in the wild-card round (the 49ers play at Green Bay on Sunday) cant interview this week.

Tomsula could be considered a long-shot because hes never been a NFL coordinator. However, coaches such as Andy Reid and John Harbaugh have become successful head coaches after making the jump from an NFL positional coach.

He does have experience as a head coach in NFL Europe. Tomsula, known for an energetic personality and positive attitude, is one of the more respect defensive line coaches in the NFL.

If continued interest in Tomsula develops, hed join offensive coordinator Greg Roman as a possible head-coach candidate...

Yeh Wade had two game plans this last year:

Game Plan A: Man to Man

Game Plan B: Zone

Never the twain shall meet.

It was obvious things were over when Wade went to the Texans archive and pulled out the Richard Smith tapes and went to the 12 yard corner buffer.

So my eyes were deceiving me when they did that sh!t in week one against the Chaaagers ?!


That's been one of my biggest pet peeves of the entire era .... reminds me so much of the Dumass Capers .... errr Keystone Capers era with P-Burnt playing 7+ yards off the LOS on 3rd & short / X & goal.

Oh FFS .... someone give me a valium.

Default Re: O'Brien & His Coaching Staffs

I am not sure how much weight I put in the "coaching tree failed so this guy will fail". If the guy fails, it'll be for a multitude of reasons, like personnel evaluation, etc.

We will find out who BOB is when he starts coaching. He's clearly a guy who wants his players to be thinkers pre-game and on the field. I think that was Kubiak's biggest failing is that he called 2 plays and the players could only run those 2 plays on the field. NE essentially kills people every year by adapting on the fly and that's what we need.

Whether that happens remains to be seen.
