    Y2Jimmy0 said Colas may be stateside. I was really hoping that would be case. For him, had to be a tough choice but he would have been potentially sacrificing ever getting a mlb pay day getting so far behind the ball.

    It is curious with the QBs under Nagy, how they all looked exactly the same bad. The greater experience and processing time gave a little flavor differently but when mitch was running well was about the only time it all looked ok.

    I guess if you were hopeful you would see things improving slightly each time. Angelo being hired in june, holy crap I forgot about that. Had no idea Mel Tucker was told he could only run lovie's scheme. Obviously he's gone on to become a better coach, you'd think at some point they'd have said "hey maybe we should find a guy who has run a cover 2". Nagy had plenty to work with, QB issues aside. Ryan Pace and Nagy could have worked if they were the right choices, but it wasn't the ideal starting point ever. And even with fields that's the case again. That said, this search is just so different. It should have never taken this long, and plenty of orgs have had the right set-up and failed, but hopefully things are finally aligned here.

    Yes he did. Gotta wonder, if either Javonte or DJJ are on the team by time they heal up.

    Jeeze, they had the worst roster in the league. Rebuilding teams really are going to be forced into either some very weak coaching candidates or some hella-long contracts with what the Dolphins and Texans have now pulled off.

    Agreed this is a great crop, especially compared to 2015. Pace was coming from New Orleans after they had sort of unraveled post Super Bowl with lots of bad cap. Ballard was so close to his Bears tenure that you can see why the erred incorrectly. Then Lake Dawson would have been hired with Tennessee in a really mediocre period. Brian Gaine was the other interview. George paton and DeCosta declined to even interview. So 4 guys. You are right in that there are few choices in GM that I would say are bad. In coaches - Frazier I would not be that happy with. Jeff Ireland I'd be skeptical of, but his drafting alone clearly makes him a strong candidate which our 2015 candidates were pretty weak experience wise.

    Also I meant to say Carolina, not Cardinals, though that is a fun brain malfunction.

    Was reading about Joe Schoen and how he learned under Brandon Beane. There is such a focus on the draft records of these guys with scouting backgrounds, its funny reading more about Beane - who was on the business and operations side of the Cardinals - and how he has taken a hands on approach in overhauling Buffalo's scouting to great success. And he learned under Gettleman, who was a disaster in NYG. You just don't know with these guys. That said, I think Dodds would have the most ready point of view. Adofo-Mensah the highest ceiling of changing how departments are run.

    Their best defender is out and their 3 power forwards to start season are out and we’re playing a guy who played in Mexico on Kevin Durant.

    Yeah being out Caruso, Green, Jones (and obviously Williams) really is hard to overcome with alfonso McKinney.

    Yeah I had no idea he wasn't the heir apparent, was reading the steelersdepot blog and it seems like their scouting coordinator is likely to take over. It mentioned Khan was nearly the Houston Texans GM last year which I did not remember. So it definitely seems real. Dodds Smith and Khan are my top 3 for sure. Really excited.

    That honestly is a very weird situation with the owner having priorities in both opportunities for a coach. It definitely makes sense if Harbaugh is leaving that this owner would know. But Harbaugh is gonna get a blank check pretty much everywhere. That owner seems like such a pushover, I can't see him axing his bestie GM to install JH.

    looking back at the interview lists in 2015 compared to now, I'm feeling very good.

    I mean yeah if they hire Leslie Frazier that is bad process but they do enough dumb stuff that I don't also get annoyed about dumb stuff they haven't done. A week ago this forum was all about their dumb process of how they'd keep pace. Then they fired him and everyone went seamlessly to their dumb process of whose hiring the next. ANd now how they are...um...interviewing candidates.

    I can't wait to get Caruso back. This is going to be an intense stretch of basketball. Our last competitive run we still weren't sure what we had. Now we think we do so it's going to be nailbiting trying to hang on as long as possible. We were such a bad matchup with Embiid in November, I am not looking forward to Giannis.

    This is getting mad just to be mad. These interviews are virtual, they can record them and pass them to the next GM. They can see which head coaches are looking for personnel power and make that decision. The actual list of HC and GMs to date has been excellent, with a diverse mix of scouts vs cap vs operations. Coaches have been mix of veterans, defensive coordinators and offensive guys.

    We'll see if they get rebuffed by anyone, but the bears are asking all the right people. Now asking Omar Khan to interview, who I deem as low likelihood with Kevin Colbert retiring, but still would be great to hear from. On Khan's side, he may in fact interview just to try and force pitt into announcing him being placed in charge?

    If his agent wasn't trying to get him a raise with all this buzz he should fire him and go get Jimmy Sexton immediately. The guy is going to get paid a lot. But whatever decision he makes, he'll be both richer and have not made the decision based on money. Pretty sweet actually

    I don't think you can completely discount Leftwich. For one, I like that he has had several years under him, not the third, one year iteration of his offensive coordinator. I also look at that AZ thing as a positive. They did modestly improve with him, he had a truly horrendous QB and awful offensive line. He had to simplify everything and get David Johnson involved. Then he goes and works in Tampa with much better skill positions and gets Watson to have a career year, and then he gets Tom Brady. That's a good amount of experience. I've also always liked him since Marshall. Not my top 3 choices though.

    Man turning that dolphins team last year into a 10 win team was one of the more impressive coaching feats I've ever seen. That roster was just a collection of stuff from the previous year. With awful QB play the first half between Tua and then injury, they still got to a winning record this year. That's pretty damn good.
