I'm not totally against Gruden...we need to do something about the offense, and his offenses were always decent, but it would be more WCO, eh? And, at least a bit outdated at this point...how many years has he been a commentator now?
I feel like we need more balance, like we've spent a bit too much on defense and we've been skimping on the offense a bit because of it. Too often, I think HCs like Frazier and Singletary who were promoted into somebody else's job mid-season, and thus understand completely what a Not For Long league it is, are afraid to put a strong enough coordinator opposite them. I would like to see a strong head coach, with more fire put in charge, but perhaps, a younger, possibly college guy who is an offensive guru come in as OC with some newer, today's rules ideas. Maybe, stepping a college guy up to coordinator before HC would help them adjust, specially with a solid, veteran HC to smooth things over.
Which leads me to this idea...Could we maybe hire an older, semi-retired HC (Cowher?) to groom his replacement for 2 or 3 years so he can re-retire...? Obviously, it would cost the Wilfs some bucks, but there's no limit on what you can spend on coaches...
Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!
