    Do We Need a DC?

    While the benefits of having a DC are monumental, I feel like we really don't need to have DC. For what seems like for ever Beliech didn't have a true offensive play caller. I say we can Mustgrave, higher Brian Billick as OC and leave him on that side of the ball. Let Fraiser make the call on the Defensive side and let the two meet to make team focused decisions.
    Thoughts?

    As much as that would delight Wilf to not have to pay a DC (since of course he is still playing Childress), Frazier needs to be managing the game, not calling Defenses. Evidenced by have 3 timeouts as time expired against Tampa, Frazier needs to improve on his game management which will not get better by having his head in the Defensive play book.

    edit: BTW, I would take Bilick over Musgrave in a heartbeat.

    I was fairly happy with Musgrave by the end of the season. He seemed to figure out Percy ... which I personally think is the key to figuring out this offense.

    That said ... I would be all for Billick.

    As for the DC ... I was never a huge fan of Frazier's lack of aggression. So, I would much prefer him dealing with the head coaching duties and have a DC come in and do what they need to instead of overloading the HC's plate.

    Leslie is in over his head with coaching the team. To think he could also take on the added responsibilities of coordinating the defense and calling formations during the game, setting personnel packages and also managing the overall game is so absolutely crazy that I would not even be surprised if the front office decided to pull the trigger on it. It would just be one more thing that makes fans shake their heads in disbelief.

Fraiser, will call timeouts for the Defense ( i.e stopping the clock etc) If you ask me, this is removing the responsibilities he has over the offense and managing the game and essentially making him a DC with a figurehead title of Head coach.

    So you are saying a DC never calls for different defensive formations, personnel packages or changes in where players are positioned on the field?

    It's obvious that you were talking about Defensive Formations now. I was talking about offensive formations.
    As I pointed out, he would handle the defensive side of the ball, something he is capable of doing. Why would controlling defensive formations pose a problem to a coach that was previously a DC o_O?

    My point is to remove the responsibility from having to manage all aspects of the game. Based on my set up, he would still have final authority but he would have the offense resting in the hands of a Superbowl winning coach/OC. That would allow him to really focus in and get this defense up to par. It will reduce his responsibility not add to it.
