Agreed, but I'm sure that Gannon would either know another disciple from the Reich/Philly tree or promote a guy like Johnson from within.I really like Gannon, but, and I may be wrong, I'm not sure. It is much harder to be a great OC than a great DC. I would rather the head coach be an offensive coach because their philosophy still stays if their OC leaves. You hire a defensive coach and their OC leaves then you have to find another OC and possibly and entire new offensive scheme.
When it comes to Philly both the OC/DC are guys that have done the work. Gannon runs the defense, Siriani is an offensive guy. Steichen helped Hurts improve throwing with accuracy and anticipation more than I ever thought he could. Both of these guys have done the heavy lifting.I have to believe the nfl world is a lot like the regular corporate world. Some coaches are really good at gobbling up all the accolades and taking credit for everything positive ,and distancing themselves from everything negative. There's some salesmanship there.
I don't want the guy who took credit.
I want the guy who orchestrated what worked.
I hope our hiring process is detailed enough to determine the difference.
