If we clean house, does new regime follow current philosophy

CMicks3110 : 12/2/2019 4:59 pm
in terms of roster construction?

It seems we're investing heavily in a very strong D-Line and ground game as the foundation of our team.

We have defensive personnel for a 3-4 and its clear Gettleman liked a big powerful o-line to clear a path for Barkley (obviously the execution hasn't worked, but the philosophy I think still stands)

So if we hire a new GM and HC, do we want someone who shares this philosophy?

I personally like the Philosophy, just don't necessarily agree with some of the decisions to get here.
What exactly do you mean by "clean house"?

That determines a lot of the answer.

If you're assuming the HC and GM are

both canned... then probably not, but we don't really follow either of those philosophies now.

Our O-line has maybe two holdovers in Zietler and Hernandez and our 3-4 defense has two solid DTs and maybe 1 linebacker worth a damn who currently has a torn ACL.

Honestly, if I told you outside of Lawrence, Tomlinson and Connelly if Williams, Hill, Carter, Ogeltree, Solder, Remmers and Jalapeno were replaced tomorrow, would you blink an eye? Maybe Hill?
What you are really asking is

do they keep certain players, because I doubt the philosophy remains the same. At least I hope not.
I doubt Gettleman is going anywhere, unless . . . .

he wants to. My gut says Shurmur is a toss up. Too much constant change with no sure improvement is the road to the Washington Redskins.

While Brandon Jacobs may not be right in saying personnel are better than the teams he played on, he may not be that wrong. There's some significant talent on this team and better coaching, and more NFL experience could make a dramatic difference. Whole-hog changing the personnel strategy with all that's invested in the current roster by way of draft picks, etc., might be unfeasible, as well as counterproductive.

Do All Pro's make teams, or do teams make All Pro's? I.e., a well coached and motivated team makes all players look better.

Too bad Ron Erhardt is no longer with us.

The new regime (if it happens) should have carte blanche  
Go Terps : 12/2/2019 6:12 pm : link
Start from the beginning: what kind of team do we want to be? Answer that question, then start going through the roster to see who fits the mission statement and who doesn't. It's not just about talent...it's about contract, age, health, etc.

The important thing is that the new regime should not have any restraints (i.e. you have to build around Jones or Barkley) placed on them. No sacred cows.

While I agree coaching is obviously paramount. The overall talent of this roster is in the bottom 3 of the league. No coach is changing that.

Philosophy. They have jobs.
