But if O'Brien fired them all so he can bring in his own set of buddies (like Kubiak did) without looking around the league, or in the college ranks, to see who might be BETTER than his buddies at each position, well, this sounds eeriely like the way things unfolded with Kubiak and with Capers before him...
....we just left that movie didn't we? I thought this was supposed to be different.
I got "excited" with Kubiak before all the results were in. Not doing that with O'Brien.
Like you say, we'll all find out together.
When a team hires an NFL coach, they are getting said coaches buddy list along with the ride. Capers did the same things really when he came in, and I'm pretty sure the 6 or 7 other new HC's next year are also going to do that as well.
Basically you have to believe that the people O'Brien wants to bring in are the people who can coach this team up into a winner and perennial playoff appearance if you think this regime will succeed.
