Most NFL assistants spent time in the college ranks. I'm not worried about where our assistants come from, just what they do. If he brings Crennel in as DC that's a quality hire. If he brings a guy from Penn State in who he taught the Patriots offensive system and saw that guy get it then I have no problem with that hire.

In other words I'm not going to start complaining about his assistants until they give me something to complain about.

Agree. Also, O'Brien strikes me as someone who would not hesitate to fire an assistant mid-season if things got rough. With Kubiak, we were stuck with bad assistants for years.

In contrast to your example of a Super Bowl coach taking over a team and leading it to a winning record, that same coach left Philly with a losing record, and that team was turned around by a college coach with no NFL head coaching experience and made the playoffs.

I think we'll do better than 2-14. But after so many **** overs by the Oilers and Texans, I ain't getting my hopes up. But I'll be there on Sunday cheering them on anyway, it's what I do.

Default Re: Do people still believe we will have a KC type turnaround next year?

I think we have a better chance of a superbowl in the next 5 years if we fix the QB situation with a top prospect now.

I look at the chiefs and the bengals, the bengals tool Dalton a bit later on and whilst they make the playoffs every year, he holds them back from progressing, the chiefs took smith and I think he likely has the same limiting factor in today's NFL.

Of course there's the time it'll take for a young guy to fit in (if at all), but get a vet for the time being in case he isn't ready and play the slow game.

I think the players this team has lost the last 3 years were underrated, and whilst you can't afford to pay them all, you also can afford not to replace them.

Too many holes on this team because Rick Smith sucks. I have no faith in him getting the personnel to field a winning team next season. I don't know what McNair is smoking when he said we had the most talented team this season.

I'm not expecting a pro bowler, and in fact if we do work enough cap to go out and be a player in FA, I'd prefer to see it spent on stop-gap starters on D so that that unit can grow and develop some young draft picks in time for the JJ watt contract.

I think a guy like chad henne, Kyle Orton, David garrard or Matt cassell are the type of guys to go for, cheap as hell, and rather than expecting some kind of huge veteran leadership, more a guy we can throw out there to ensure that if our rookie QB of the future truly is not ready to be on the field, the coaches have the time to coach him up rather than allowing him to become shellshocked "damaged goods" by being on the field when not ready, it's hard to recover from that situation as a young QB.

If our top level draftee isn't ready, we can pretty much assume it will be reflected in our record whatever happens. Just stick a warm body out there rather than ruining the guy from the off.

The four guys I mention all have plenty of starting experience in the NFL, they aren't going to win you a championship but they should be capable of keeping things respectable.

Default Re: Do people still believe we will have a KC type turnaround next year?

I think we're two solid drafts away from being a double-digit winning team. There is not as much talent on this team as people think, and our depth is truly lacking...look who we had starting in the DB corps at the end of the year and tell me we have good depth.

I don't think we're only a 6 win team next year, but 9-7 is possible given the weak sauce schedule we face. As a unit, I'm most concerned about the defense. Obviously, we can't put all the defensive struggles on losing Cushing...that's what talent and depth help you cope with, and we don't have a ton on that side of the ball.

Default Re: Do people still believe we will have a KC type turnaround next year?

I have no expectations because it's just a bit too early for any to really be built. Do I think they can do it? Yes, I don't see why not. As I type this I am watching the Chargers with a new coach who never was a head coach in the NFL playing a strong game on the road. Oh and he fired the staff. Most new head coaches do exactly that. It's nothing new nor surprising. If you need leftovers to help you evaluate the talent on the team then you have the wrong job. O'Brien shouldn't need a single coach from last year to help him in that aspect. Basically all head coaches choose their own guys.

Not to mention Chip Kelly got the Eagles in as well and of course the team mentioned, the Chiefs. In this league it is possible because this is not the league we (well some of us) grew up with where you're looking at 3 years minimum to get back on your feet. There are is always someone new in the playoffs and someone/s that have turned their season over in one year. It's been done time and time again for the last handful of years. So wouldn't be overly surprising if it happened here when you have a handful of all-pros already on roster.

Yes, I believe this team can have a KC like turnaround. This team has the same talent level that won them 12 games last year. If we get a franchise caliber QB in the draft we could easily be back in the playoffs next year.

Yes. Most losses this year were due to coaching and an injured roster.

Default Re: Do people still believe we will have a KC type turnaround next year?

It's difficult to say how next year will turn out. A lot of players had down years or were injured. Can they bounce back to form or are they pretty much done?

Without injuries, this team was a lot better than a 2-14 team. So if they're healthy next year, even without adding anyone, I think they're at least 6-10. Bring in a new QB who can run the show and a RT to protect him and the offense should be top 10 again. Defense is all down to how well guys who were injured or underperformed bounce back. If everyone gets back to form, the defense should be top 10 too.

On the flip side, everything could go the other way with more regression and injuries and we end up worse than 2013.

I don't think 2014 can be worse than this year.

Besides, we're in a division with Jacksonville and Tennessee. Honestly, there is no excuse for losing any of those four games so losing them this year was just mindblowing. Of course, as we saw this year, anything and everything can happen in football. I'm not even that impressed with the Colts overall outside of Luck. They're beatable too. We were beating their asses on Sunday night before the ridiculousness set in.
