Yes, I don't think that will be an issue.
Good question. No one else was pursuing him. Maybe Murphy and Gutekunst are smarter than everybody else.
No. I would have taken this guy hands down.
I don't have a strong opinion. I thought they should have interviewed Fangio and Munchak.
I just don't like the idea of hiring someone just for Aaron Rodgers. I think that's asking for trouble. Hire the guy who's best going to command the team and then hire great coordinators. I really thought Fitzgerald might have been that guy. I think John Harbaugh is that guy, too.
No. McCarthy probably wanted to dictate his terms. And why not? He's getting paid next year no matter what.
I can't say I have a favorite. I still would have interviewed Fangio.
Yes, some of them will be let go.
I did not. I suspected they reacted to his interview and decided he was better than the rest. i would have brought him in for another interview.
I agree whole-heartedly. He should have run the search.
Yes. An extra minicamp and extra week of off-season OTAs.
Only under certain circumstances. He needed to make changes to his staff. He needed to do what Andy Reid did and add some new ideas.
He had won Super Bowls. He had coached Joe Montana and Steve Young. He had pretty good credentials. He was the No. 1 candidate around the league.
Dang, I don't know. Hmmm...
Zac Taylor will be blocked by McVay. It will be hard for him to get some of his top candidates, but he'll try.
