Do you think Shurmur will stand up for Bettcher?

nzyme : 11/11/2019 8:50 am
Shurmur seems resolute on his answers about coaching changes.

Question to you guys: Do you think he stands that firm when the ownership tells him to fire Bettcher or he loses his job?

We can only hope lol...

the door.
Him firing Bettcher isn't going to keep him here

He's gone at the end of the season, knows it and I'm guessing the players do as well.
Why would he?

Defense is terrible.
I Assume That The Press Was Asking...

If Shurmur was planning any IMMEDIATE coaching changes.

As far as whether Shurmur would agree to let Bettcher go in order to keep his job... of course he would.

Let's just hope both are shown the door.
Our defense is historically bad  
Rjanyg : 11/11/2019 9:07 am : link
We allowed the Jets offense to score 27 points. The offense has been averaging 9 points per game.

So are we a player or 2 away from having a good defense? Is it the scheme? Is it positional coaching?

We have a young defense. Sometimes you take the good with the bad with rookies. Baker has made a few mistakes. Ballantine is getting more time. Lawrence and Ximines seems to be growing up while getting a large amount of PT.

Bettcher is working with what he has, the killer for him is we have many former players of his from AZ and it doesnt seem to be helping.
He's from the Andy Reid school of coaching...

......he's not firing Bettcher.

Shurmur is captain of the ship, and he's going to go down with the ship along with his lieutenants.

Bye bye............they all know it.

Don't know if he's gone...

I think it's going to be fire Bettcher and he'll get one more year...
Not defending Bettcher  
BillT : 11/11/2019 9:20 am : link
But this defense is young! Lawrence, Hill, Tomlinson, Carter, Ximines, Baker, Ballantine, Beal, Connolly, Love, Haley. I dont know how good this group can be but these guys are just beginning. No one was going to turn this group into a solid D even with some decent vets like Jenkins, Peppers and Golden.
A bigger question is  
Peter from NH (formerly CT) : 11/11/2019 9:23 am : link
does he stand up for Hunter the oline coach? He is the constant in a continuously underperforming group.
curious if it's Bettcher  
mdc1 : 11/11/2019 9:29 am : link
scheme is too complex for these players or the assistants are not doing their jobs. Are the assistant's Bettcher's guys are hand selected by Mara?
nothing is going to change

until a real adult stands up and says we are going to solve the problem through the draft and it is going to take several years to get back to normal. Replace the roof instead of patching it with high priced FA's.
There is zero chance if given the option to stay, but told  
Mad Mike : 11/11/2019 9:35 am : link
he has to change his assistants, that Shurmur would go down with the ship. Maybe he'd put up an argument, but if it's replace them or get fired with them, he accepts the replacements. He doesn't have the juice to win a fight over his assistants, nor does he have the kind of career where he walks away from a job over that kind of thing.
It's the back end of the defense  
Johnny5 : 11/11/2019 9:45 am : link
We were getting a shit ton of pressure on Darnold. Right now Bethea, the lack of a good coverage LB and the young CBs are killing this defense.
mdthedream : 11/11/2019 9:48 am : link
you really think that someone else with this talent on defense could do better?
He shouldnt have to be asked  
Dankbeerman : 11/11/2019 11:03 am : link
He either needs to do everythi g to save his job or start packing up his own desk
