Posted 2 Feb 2015He's got his ring, so bring the Street Thug home!
If nothing else, that game last night showed the importance of having top quality corners, with Revis and Sherman giving up just one catch each. And if we can bring back one of the best in the business, we'll be all the better when defending the pass.
Posted 9 Jan 2015Insightful read, and it sounds as though it's a system that will fit Richardson, Wilkerson and Harrison just fine. I'm not sure where Coples would fit in though as he doesn't really fit the Cliff Avril mould; nor do we have someone similar to Bruce Irvin on the roster who is quick off the edge. That kind of speed edge rusher is something we've been searching for in vain for years though.
The responsibilities that system requires of the LBs may be too much for David Harris as well - if Quinn gets hired it will be interesting to see how contract talks playing out with him.
Seattle certainly plays aggressively on defence, so it wouldn't mean too much of a diffrence compared to how we played under Ryan. If it is to be Quinn, let's just hope he brings an equally aggressive and innovative offensive mind to oversee the other side of the ball.
Posted 3 Jan 2015One benefit of hiring Marrone is that he had Mike Pettine as his defensive coordinator in 2013. Hopefully that would mean he would have a good chance of keeping most of the current defensive staff intact, due to his familiarity with that system.
He's got pedigree offensively, overseeing the Saints' offense under Sean Payton for three years. But during his time in Buffalo the defence carried the team. Having EJ Manuel, Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel all start in his first season can be used in his defence though!
Marrone's not necessarily an exciting choice, but then nobody out there really is. Overall I think he'd be a safe hire and I like the fact that he already has experience as an NFL head coach. Among the other names being touted, only Gary Kubiak and Tom Cable bring that; Kubiak I like, Cable I don't.
Posted 22 Dec 2014Yea I know he is gone. My point is if Idzik is running the draft and FA pickups we will be looking for another HC in 2 years. Rex has not developed one Offensive player and he is as inept Offensively as much as he is brilliant defensively. Clean house and get someone who knows what the heck they are doing. With a clean house we will be able to attract better coaches and front office people.
If Rex is going to get fired - a very likely scenario - I'd rather we went out and invested a good deal of money in a proven head coach.
As tempting as a young, bright offensive mind sounds for a team with a pitiful offense, we'd be losing a hell of a lot defensively going down that route as I wouldn't expect Rex's assistants to hang around in that scenario.
For once, if Woody is to make a change there, our owner needs to dig deep in his pockets. We've had playoff seasons with Edwards, Mancini and Ryan - all first time head coach hires - but that route has produced just one division title in 2002. Getting in a position to beat the Patriots is the first step we need to take, and I don't think a rookie head coach is going to put us in a position to get the better of Belichick. Don't get me wrong, we've had some good wins against New England in Ryan's tenure - and he seems to know how to stifle Brady as demonstrated again yesterday. But if we went with some of those coordinators being touted, I don't think the outcome will be any different and we'll still find ourselves in the Pats' rear view mirror.
