    I like that. Newsome has done wonders for Baltimore. Maybe he could bring a scout or two with him.

    I like Reed as a secondary coach. Let Ed coach up the youngsters.

    We need a fresh offensive system, Garys has been figured out and exposed. Not sure who the next OC needs to be, but they need to bring something fresh to the table, and not conservative.

    Wades defense has also been figured out, and puts too much stock in the blitz. We need to get better at applying pressure with four up front, and controlling the field in coverage. We need to bring in a defensive scheme that is cutting edge, and not the same ol same ol.

    ST needs to be completely re-vamped. Bring in someone who is shining at the college level.

    Tony Dungy also built the defense that Gruden won his SB with...I feel safe in assuming he has an eye for defensive talent..especially when you consider how good his defenses were in Indy.


    I'd like to see David Shaw or Obrien from Penn State...

    Dungy has categorically said he is done with coaching, kaput, finished, never to go back. Enjoying his life after coaching to much to ever go back.

    I would be happy with either Lovie Smith or Kevin Sumlin.

    You need a good GM with an eye for talent no matter who you hire. I don't like a coach having total control or the final say on personnel decisions. It just gives them more things to worry about and its hard enough to coach without having to find players too.

    You call Cowher, without a doubt. Lovie was well loved up here, even with the firing. Good man, runs great Ds. His issue was working with a GM to hire a competent O Coordinator. Zimmer needs a shot at some point. I'm just a little worried why he hasn't gotten one so far. Not sure if his style wears on people.

    LZ threw this out today. I haven't watched his work as much as others so no real opinion here.

    Makes a lot of sense. Give Gary his final year contract while lightening his load by bringing back Kyle. Rick Smith will remain the GM. Soild call.

    We already had little Shanny (28 years old) here and groomed him for daddy to take to Washington as his oc. He isn't going to come back and do the same job he is already doing for his dad. I sure wouldn't want him as head coach here. He is way to inexperienced for that job. I think we need to go in a different direction.

    Wonder what Rob Ryan could do with our defensive players?

    I bet big Shanny gets canned after this season.

    just to clarify - I want nothing to do with big Shanny. Just pointing out that after daddy gets fired, Kyle will have no other reason to stick around D.C.

    To be honest, I am ready for a complete overhaul scheme change myself. Ready for a spread offense a la New Orleans, GB, Denver, etc. The ZBS was great and effective but in order to re-invent our team (which is what I think is needed) I think we need to re-invent the scheme.

    Mike Zimmer
    Jay Gruden
    Lovie Smith
    Joe Philbin (if he gets canned over the Incognito mess)

    Rob Ryan was a blowhard douche when he was with the Cowboys, not sure if he is head coach material.

    Hopefully no college coaches

    This is just speculation, but:

    I was looking at teams records today, and realized it is very possible that 8 teams could have openings this offseason.

    Washington 3-6 Shanny
    New York Giants 3-6 Coughlin
    Minnesota 2-7 Frazier
    Pittsburgh 3-6 Tomlin
    Tampa Bay 0-8 Schiano
    Atlanta 2-7 Smith
    Jacksonville 1-8 Bradley
    Houston 2-7 Kubiak

    Now of course, some of these seasons can be turned around, and won't get fired. Like I said, it's just speculation.

    Giving that however, are there any coaches from these teams any of y'all would like to bring in?

    Little Shanny needs a win on his career path before there is any consideration. Cronyism is a major contributor to the mediocrity of the Texans' Kubiak experience to date.
