I just posted in another thread about Wade Phillips and it reminded me of something else ive been wanting to post about. When we hired this coaching staff.. we took a slew of "2nd chancers".. guys that couldnt make it somewhere else, so we hired them to work for us. Sometimes that pays off...and all a guy needs is another chance in a new environment to really show how capable he is.. but alot of the time, it ends up biting you in the rear. And that is what happened to us. So here is the million dollar question.. can McNair do something amazing? Can he get a coaching staff that isnt made up of cast offs? Usually.. you DONT want to hire someone who just got fired somewhere else. They are obviously not doing too good right now if they just lost their job.. so why bring them in to do the same bad job for you? It would be great if McNair could lure some great coaches away from their teams.. instead of taking the guys no one wants. An example is Wade Phillips.. defenisive coordinator for San Diego. If we could get him to come be our DC, that would rock. I really dont want to see us with an all new lineup of underachievers. I dont want Martz... I dont want Billick... I dont want Mariucci.. I want talented guys that teams will hate to see leave. If we want to succeed in the next 5 years.. we dont need to take any more chances on anyone..we need sure things.. and the only way to do that is to either bring someone great out of retirement (*cough*JimmyJohnson*cough*).. or lure them away from their current job. Here is hoping that McNair will crack that checkbook and pull off some amazing hires this offseason.
