So there you go. Assistant defensive backs coach. Official.
To quote Mr. Burns, " Excellent"!
And the circle of life is complete....right back where he started...assistant def backs coach!
There has to be more to it than this.
Any time you get a former NFL head coach as an assistant, you have to figure you've got a quality franchise. So far, Kubiak's had two of them...
Great news indeed. I can't wait to see the impact he has on our DB's. Hopefully he is persistent to Kubes about drafting some good talent this year as well!
Cool. Now, Rick can go get Trufant. I'm starting to drool at the possibility of Trufant, Dunta, Bennett, Demps & Boulware in our secondary. Not to mention who we may get in the draft.
Should be a hire that helps the team. Good job Kubes, Rick & Bob.
Remember when Bobby Bouchet (or maybe it was Chuck Knoll) was the coach of the Steelers in the early 70's and they made 3 good drafts and went on to win 4 Super Bowls? GOOD COACHING made that possible. With the coaching staff this team is assembling and the way we've been drafting the last 2 years, we just might be the next Steel Curtain.
yes!! so ive been thinking
It'll be interesting to see what effect he'll have on our young DBs, like Bennett.
it does seem like the additions of Frank Bush last year, Sherman the previous and Alex Gibbs and Ray Rhodes this year that our coaching staff has really become a strength for us. The teams philosophy is surrounding youth with veteran wisdom. We've got some young guys in Kyle Shanahan and John Benton with several well respected and successful senior members like Gibbs, Rhodes and Bush.
I really like this way of thinking. Kubiak surrounds himself with guys that have proven ways of winning as well as guys that may bring fresh thinking and new ideas to the table. There in the middle is Kubiak. Kind of a "tweener" if you will. A veteran OC if ever there was one. (maybe the guy running the colts) But a young HC.
It looks real good.
I'm not a big fan of his defensive schemes....but he does bring lots of needed experince to the defensive side of the ball, and I do think we needed that. Get ready for lots of soft defense in between the 20's though.
So, you're saying there will not be much of a change to what we have now? Because if we get much softer between the 20's, we'd be equivalent to the Stay Puffed Marshmellow man.
Why do you say that? Does he like to play zone? I'm curious because I'm not familiar with his coaching scheme.
He's notoriously known for playing "prevent" defense and allowing the underneath passes...he's been a good coach overall though. I think we really need some more NFL experience on the defensive side of the ball and while I'm not crazy about him as a coach I think we needed some more experience back there.
