I for one am optimistic with this new coach, He said some good things.
1. He isn’t going to call the defensive plays, he believes that the defensive coach should call his owns plays. But he will be involved in every aspect of the game.
When is the last time this has happened. Hue called the offense, Cable Called the offense, Norv called the offense, shit brain Kiffen called the offense. Ok, Art Shell didn’t call the offense but really.....
It looks like we have a HEAD coach not a coach that is going to be stuck on one side of the ball.
2. He is going to evaluate the the entire team, not just run a system that he wants to run, he’s not necessarily tied to the 4-3 or 3-4 but is going to evaluate the team and run what fits the defense players he has.
I like this, that’s what needs to happen. You cannot have a team plays schemes it doesn’t have the personnel to run.
I could go on, needless to say i’m on board.
It will take time. I am not expecting to go to the Super Bowl next year
Dennis Allen thinks he has the players to win next year. I know he has to say stuff like that to get his players on his side.
But it’s not going to be easy. A lot of these players have seen a lot of coaches come and go and have heard a lot of speeches and direction.
The staff he chooses will be the biggest factor
