I think Jacksonville is going to hire him and relegate themselves to at least another five years of suckitude.What is their plan when he quits the job in a year? You can’t count on Meyer to stay for a 3-4 year rebuild.
I think AZ would say Kliff is a success so far, took over a 3-13 team, went 5-10 then 8-8, that's a pretty reasonable rebuild even if his in-game decisions are sometimes.... weird.I think Jacksonville is going to hire him and relegate themselves to at least another five years of suckitude.
I think the college and pro games are way too different these days to assume success in the former will lead to success in the latter. Who is the last successful college-to-the-pros coach? Harbaugh?
Campbell has zero pro experience. Is that what you want? But maybe it's a good idea since the Jets aren't pros.If they let Douglas do the hire it could be someone good. The rhymes with history would be Wink. I wouldn’t mind Pat Fitz, or Matt Campbell. Campbell rejected interview with us last time.
No one wants to learn the lesson Kraft taught - don't try to be a talent evaluator as an owner.Jaguars owner Shad Khan said he had roster control in 2020 and will make sure GM coming in knows he will keep that control for now, at least.

Good save on his part.He clarified it, seems more like he was saying that he had the GM clear contracts through him before finalization more than he was involved in evaluating talent. That's not that bad, an owner wanting to know how you're spending his money before you do it is fine. I think it was a response to some of Coughlin's tenure where he had carte blanche and made some big mistakes.
Well, it's not as though they haven't been working on the GM frontHmm, making your coach shortlist without a GM... that usually works out GREAT.
The Lions are such a poorly run franchise
I speculated on this in the Miami thread, but O’Shea is whatever. Gailey was brought out of retirement to get the most out of Ryan Fitzpatrick this season. To win the max amount of games with Fitz as possible in 2020 and help develop Tua and get him ready. You aren’t bringing a dude out of retirement thinking 3-4 years down the road.Two years in a row that Flores has flushed out the OC after one year.
This seems to be the case.Just a head’s up, Schefter himself has not tweeted about the Gailey firing, neither has Rappaport. There was a fake Schefter account tweet about Gailey, and it seems like ESPN might have been duped.
Sigh. Well hopefully the real news breaks later this afternoon. Also, lol ESPNThis seems to be the case.
I would imagine Harbaugh being interested would correlate to the Jets moving on from Sam Darnold and Harbaugh taking his QB of choice, which I would assume is Fields since he’s pretty familiar with him.Cross posted in Michigan thread; story about delaying extension of Jets show interest do t know how good it is sourced.
Always thought Harbaugh might be a candidate because of brother connection with Douglas. I’m fine with it. Michigan fans think he sucks, idk.I would imagine Harbaugh being interested would correlate to the Jets moving on from Sam Darnold and Harbaugh taking his QB of choice, which I would assume is Fields since he’s pretty familiar with him.
I think he kind of sucks too. Well, maybe I should say, Harbaugh the GM/recruiter sucks. He seemed fine when someone else was getting the groceries. He lost the power struggle in San Fran and hasn’t built anything of note at Michigan.Always thought Harbaugh might be a candidate because of brother connection with Douglas. I’m fine with it.

Given your logic, why not Jags over Jets. NY media is poison.It's a QB league, so I'd go:
Texans - Watson is a great building block even though they're F'd in this draft
Chargers - Herbert looks good
Falcons - Ryan has a few years left, and this team played better than their record
Jets - if you don't believe Darnold is fixable you've got your QB at #2 in the draft
Jaguars - start the build with Lawrence
Lions - Stafford is near the end but could be an interesting trade chip
