Soldiering On. GM/OC/DC choices

Recommended Posts

OK,   if Stinky Stefanski is going to be our HC......what about the other important jobs on this team.

GM candidates:   

OC:  

DC:

I have heard a couple of names for  GM....maybe The Young Wolf, Dobbs from KC?     OC:  Kubiak would be good  DC: Schwartz would be good.

Who else?

I'd be surprised if Andrew Berry isn't the GM.

We could always bring back Todd Haley at OC.

How about Jay Gruden...OC

Could Todd Monken be kept?

Just heard that it wouldn’t be surprising if Stefanski keeps Wilks, guess he was the DC he would have brought on last year if he had gotten the job.

not sure if I like that or not. He had a couple really good schemed games (Baltimore @ Balt. was a great defense) but then he got beat by Duck and some Denver QB that hadn’t taken a snap. I guess he can’t run on the field and tackle and cover players himself though. 
 

might be nice to keep him on... No massive changes needed. 
 

meh. Whateves

1) I hope not!

2) Wilks was the Coach & I saw nothing but regression. Our tackling is some of the worst I have ever seen & I expect players to be coached UP! Ours were not.

Obviously, I'm no fan of Wilks, but...

He had absolutely NO answer after   Garrett got suspended.  Failed to adapt....and as someone said:   tackling was atrocious. 

Hard pass.

He can't.

That's what "No lateral moves" means.

Either The team quit on Wilks or his scheme is awful or both.  There was time before Christmas I thought he would be the fall guy and get axed and Freddie would stay on for one year.

i think there is a .0001% chance that Wilks is in Cleveland

Man.... I don’t know if Wilks is all that bad.

His all pro DE center piece of his defense gets bounced. The only other pass rusher on the other side of the ball (Vernon) can’t stay on the field, Your GM traded away any DE depth you had for a worthless safety and a 4th round pick leaving you with no names,  half the games Ward played this year he looked like he couldn’t cover a JV WR, Redwine looked lost out there at times....

Not going to say I’ll be upset if they move on, but I’ll take Wilks defense over Ray Horton or O’Neil’s

I hate to even THINK it, but I have an awful feeling that Wilks may be retained. 🤢

George Paton is being interviewed for OC.    Seriously,  George Paton.

The players damned well better listen to him;

This George Paton  (one t)  is currently asst. GM for the Vikings.   He and Stefanski have worked together for the Vikings for 13 years.

If this is a case of the coach picking the GM,   then that would make some sense.

"I'm told there is league-wide interest in Andrew Berry. He does not HAVE to take the Browns GM position. He has options and is also weary (of the Browns) based off what happened in the past."

Keith Britton 10:59 am, 1/13/20

"I've also been told the respect John Dorsey carries in the scouting circles is something that has impacted how many potential GMs feel/would have felt about taking an interview."

Fool me once... etc., etc.

Was that the case in KC as well? :)

I guess "mutual decision to part ways" doesn't mean what it used to...

Again....goes back to who is interviewing who?  Are the Browns interviewing  him for GM, or is he interviewing them for whether or not he would want to work here again.   If he has multiple options, as you seem to indicate, I would say it is the latter.

Keith Britton 10:59 am, 1/13/20

"I've also been told the respect John Dorsey carries in the scouting circles is something that has impacted how many potential GMs feel/would have felt about taking an interview." 

Well, Maybe both of the above reports have a lot to do with the George Paton consideration. While maybe few others may want to come here, Paton may want to continue working with his long time colleague, Stefanski.

All I can say is look how much better KC's D has gotten this year than last. He needs to go.

Goes to show you....that with these reports one guy says black and the other says white.    Who knows what to believe until an actual announcement is made.

Sign up with Dutch for some fairness lessons...

Be it Berry or the Vikes' Asst GM or another so long as we don't hire the hobo then we're getting a guy from a franchise who has been... WAIT FOR IT...  working on the draft. So not only will we get a GM who knows this draft class but brings the perspective of a different organization... and that ain't bad.

Kevin OConnell sp?

and Jim Caldwell.
