Coaches Id interview and Why

djstat : 11/4/2019 11:13 pm
Watching this game, this team seems unprepared, overmatched and undisciplined. The defense is horrific. The offense is pathetic. Wasting the talent of Barkley. After a 65 yard reception, Shurmer takes him off the field for 2 plays. So here is who Id want to interview as a GM and Why:

In no particular order:

1. Marvin Lewis - Say what you want about his time in Cincinnati, he consistently had the Bengals competitive and prepared to play despite one of the worst owners in football. Lewis is defensive minded coach and has always has a proven history of turning poor defenses into very good or great defenses. Also he will bring in an offensive staff that will be dedicated to the offense. Not a HC who will hijack the offense. Heck, maybe hed bring in Jay Gruden which would be ok with me as his OC.

2. Matt Eberflus - has turned around the Colts defense fast. Sees how Reich has run a team. Young, Smart and again wont hijack the offense.

3. John Fox - No idea if he wants back in the game. But he understands how to run a team, prepare a team and build a coaching staff.

4. Greg Roman - Love what he has done with Baltimore offense. He has success with mobile QBs. Id be hesitant because I fear hed want to call his own plays.

5. Kris Richard - Hes my kind of coach. Tough, aggressive and successful. And it would hurt Dallas.

6. Jim Harbaugh - If available, hell yeah id want him here

7. Nick Saban - Doubt he wants to come here but Id ask

**I do not think Lincoln Riley will want to move to the NFL Yet.
Gary Kubiak would be #1 on my list

But honestly and I mean this whole-heartedly, I would pretty much take anyone over Shurmur at this point. McAdoo, Gase...I don't give a shit. I can't stand Shurmur anymore.
If they hired Marv Lewis

. Kubiak has stress management issues. Dont see him applying
I don't even like Dan Quinn. I think he's a horrible head coach.  
Anakim : 11/4/2019 11:18 pm : link
And I'd even want him over Shurmur. Hell, I'd take Gase over Shurmur.

Can't see why anyone wants him....what has he won?
When the Giants picked Shurmer  
Jerz44 : 11/4/2019 11:19 pm : link
I immediately thought of Norv Turner. Good OC but could he be a HC?

I think the answer is No, and this will be his last gig as a HC.

I just pray to God he's not the HC again next year

Because he is a joke of a head coach who held a job years longer than he ever deserved. My brother in law is a Bengals fan. If Marvin Lewis was within earshot of him he would here many hours of unpleasant words

Rhule
The sad thing is that many of us see what's coming  
Anakim : 11/4/2019 11:25 pm : link
It's going to be someone in the mold of John Fox and Marvin Lewis
There are some awful names in this thread?  
Mr. Bungle : 11/4/2019 11:27 pm : link
Why mention them and not Mike McCarthy?
I laughed  
huygens20 : 11/4/2019 11:33 pm : link
I opened this thread not having slot of expectations

But to see Marvin Lewis made me laugh


You want to hire a coach that couldnt get Andy dalton to take the big step in development to coach DJ8.

Lewis was 131-122-3 as a HC. He was hired as Bengals HC in 03 after they had t made lost season for 13 years. Made the playoffs 7 times and again coached for the worst owners in football who spent no money. But hey, cause your brother in law didnt like him, neither do you.

Ill take a coach who won 131 games and made the playoffs multiple seasons with a QB like Dalton.
There will not be a new HC

Anytime soon. Some of you need to come to grips with that.

Shurmur will be the head coach week 1 next year.

I pray for Steelers to collapse so they fire
Mike Tomlin he is my number one choice

Belichek jr would be very intriguing choice ..

This. And it's not close, it's going to be depressing when we don't fire Shurmur, wait two more years, and then bring in somebody like Marvin Lewis.

Rhule would be perfect for the Giants. He's from NYC, briefly coached on the Giants, he runs an offense tailor made for the Giants personnel (power run out of a spread concept), and he's big on culture.

I think Josh McDaniels will
Lewis came to mind

However, something tells me he is unable to get over the hump, not unlike Schottenheimer. I said it in week three, and Ill say it again; put Fassel in the front office, and let him build a coaching staff, before the window on Engram & Barkley, is slammed shut. JF, was a good evaluator of talent (Fox & future HOFer, Sean Payton), during his tenure with NY, and we allowed his coordinators continued success with opposing franchises. JF, will bring zero baggage, and a set of nuts the Giants have lacked for nearly a decade.
I know Parcells, would lament that you are what your record says you are. However, bad coaching has cost this team at least three games this year. We are fundamentally inept, and have no identity or direction. I see better coaching 1/2 hour away, in Pahoke. Barry Switzer, managed a game clock better then the tool we have on our sidelines.
I would also look at

Saleh out of SF. Defensive minded and they have looked great this year.
Shurmur Will Stay  
Rong5611 : 11/5/2019 5:52 am : link
Bettcher will be let go, those guys are not responding. He's coaching scheme, our guys can't execute it. It's not working. He's in over his head.

The Mara's won't drop PS, thinking they need another year of him teaching Daniel Jones. I'm not sure I agree. The franchise is regressing. We will be lucky to be 4-12. It might be time to let him go.

Eberflus and Harbaugh  
jeff57 : 11/5/2019 6:27 am : link
Are the only two on your list I would consider.
If Pat Shurmur  
LakeGeorgeGiant : 11/5/2019 8:16 am : link
is the coach next year this organization has hopelessly lost it's way.

Sadly yes, they will likely fire Bettcher and keep PS.
Maybe  
LakeGeorgeGiant : 11/5/2019 8:17 am : link
just maybe, a new OL coach as well.
