I think Gutekunst was sold, but I don't know it for sure. I wish I knew.
The field wasn't great. I mean, the Browns stayed in house with a guy who had barely called plays. The Cardinals went with a fired college coach. The Buccaneers went with a guy who had retired. I don't know what the Bengals are going to do.
I do. Typically, close to half the roster changes when a new coach comes in.
Probably a week or so. Depends on whether there are some guys in the playoffs that he's interested in.
I haven't, but it might have been true since they asked to interview him.
Indirectily he was influential. They hired a guy to get him playing great again.
Sean Payton had been an offensive coordinator for the Giants for three years and was assistant head coach under Bill Parcells for three years. Are you kidding me?
Two years. But the expectation will be that he makes the playoffs this year.
Yes, good point. That's a factor. Gase and McDaniel would have pushed hard for their kind of guys.
Yes, and I think that's a huge mistake.
I think that's going to be key. He's worked at a lot of places and there's a network among Shanahan and McVay. But he's going to have a hard time pulling guys from those two staffs because he won't be offering a play-calling coordinators job. Shanahan and McVay aren't just going to hand over assistants.
