As long as they replace him with a coach that has a successful resume and appears ready to be a HC (assuming its not a "name" HC) ...they can't look like their looking for a cheap option again.
Honestly, I think if the Glazers could turn the clock back 3 years they would do things differently. They obviously have one or more NFL executives that they listen to and on this one, they got some real bad advice. Wherever Pewter Report was getting their information , i.e., touting Raheem as a future coaching star as early as the summer before his hiring would give us a clue. Their NFL sources were really doing a sales job on behalf of Raheem. Sure, we all wondered who was this DB coach that would sprint down the field along with the DB's with enthusiasm during practice. But I believe just observing an enthusiastic DB coach couldn't possibly be enough to sway the Glazers. I believe they look to NFL people for advice. I just wonder if they're still getting advice from the same sources. That's a depressing thought.
Yep, they really screwed the pooch on this one.
