Russ Grimm.  Winner as player and coach.  Much like Dungy passed over for many HC jobs and would change culture here.

I'm intigued by the possibility of Chip Kelly installing an explosive offense....and at the same time worried about the Steve Spurrier effect.

Chud? I'm not impressed as a HC. I think he is a great OC, but he has limited experience as an OC. We just got rid of inexperience and I don't want to consider that again. I would consider him as a HC only if he had the ability to assemble a top-flight staff. He would have to sell that. The downside is that this could be a Cam Cameron situation. Great OC's don't always make great HC's.

Zimmer is another coach who has me intrigued. I'm starting to lean towards this choice if we go with an inexperienced HC. Over ten years as a DC and he produces results. He has the experience and connections to assemble a staff. The wild card on him is what is his offensive philosophy? Who would he hire as OC?


My #1 choice would be Marty Schottenheimer. Because he has a proven track record as a head coach who can turn a franchise around into a consistent winner. He won in CLE and KC. He won with less than stellar QB's. He hasn't done good in the post season, but that is not a concern of mine. I think Marty would be very Hungry, not yungry to make a run in the post season. Given the right situation with time to build the team to his liking I believe he could win in the post season. I believe he is the only coach of a caliber that can step in and compete for titles right away. Of course there will be many players to cut and free agents to sign and Marty has the experience to get this done. He just recently built a great team(and staff) in SD before Norv Turner went in there and ruined it.

Why do I really like Marty so much? Because he has always provided a consistent winner, and unlike the unproven coaches, you know what you are getting. Even if he doesn't take us all the way and he does fail in the post season, he would leave behind a disciplined team, a team who is competitive. If one of the unproven coaches fails you could be looking at a Cam Cameron 0-16 situation. The Glazers can't afford to take any chances right now. If they lose 20k season ticket holders the stadium would be literally empty. It would be the death of this franchise.

You make a good case for Schott. Still would love to see Kelly here , maybe team him up with Zimmer as HC.

Chip Kelly - proven winner, proven disciplinarian, innovator, respected, intellectual, will sell tickets, will custom build an offense to fit personnel. Pats, Saint, and Packers all thrive in a 3-4 wide spread style O that has them at the top playoffs with the worst defenses in the NFL. Its a pass first, offensive led game these days, let's go get the Guru.

while he might provide some discipline, does he invite problem children?   he certainly cant keep his players in line.  and he does have an innovative offense, but has it really changed?  it seems pretty similar to when he first got to oregon.  i think he is great at the college game, but i believe his offense is built around having a mobile QB as a running threat.  and i dont see that working for long in the NFL.

Choice: Billick (HC/OC) Del Rio (DC)

Why: Because it's awesome. Also, it's somewhat plausible given their history.

Here is some more from Don Banks on Nov. 11:
   


Sounds like that article could have just as easily been written about us last season.

At least when his problem children act up he punish's them and to the tune of year long suspensions. As far as his system, he has only been running it for his time in Oregon, in New Hampshire his original Offense was a zone blocking run game. Which is my point, he was extremly successful with the zone run(broke school offense records), but when he lost his star RB due to graduation he looked at his roster and completely rebuilt a new spread scheme to fit them.  And what did this new scheme do, break all the records he set the year before. This new philosophy fit Oregon's team, so well he crushed team and NCAA records.

The story is out there, just have to dig a little bit and be objective.

Choice: Jon Gruden

Just kidding. Seriously mine would either be Billick or Tom Clements, QB coach in Green Bay

Why: Billick - he's like Gruden but without the two faced-ness, he's won a Super Bowl, can delegate for defense and has track record of quality assistant coaches.

Clements - The more I read about him the more I believe he'd be the perfect coach for Josh.  He's been in the league awhile so I believe he'd put together a solid squad.

I posted this in another thread but I'll re post it here as well (we have too many threads, man!).
http://www.packers.com/team/coaches/tom-clements/bb67e02f-a2b1-4543-83af-00f437249c9f
Joined Packers Jan. 29, 2006.
Possesses 19 years of coaching experience, including two seasons as an NFL offensive coordinator.
Prior to Green Bay, spent 10 seasons coaching quarterbacks under some of the game’s most successful coaches, including Bill Cowher, Mike Ditka and Lou Holtz.
Played 12 years in the Canadian Football League at quarterback and was a seven-time divisional all-star and two-time Grey Cup champion; was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 1994.
An All-American at Notre Dame in 1974, he finished fourth in Heisman Trophy balloting that year.
Practiced law for five years before beginning coaching career.
Tom Clements, entering his 19th season in the coaching profession, is in his sixth year as Green Bay’s quarterbacks coach.

Now in his 15th overall NFL season, Clements was named to his position Jan. 29, 2006, by Head Coach Mike McCarthy. Familiar with the role, Clements also served as quarterbacks coach for the Pittsburgh Steelers (2001-03), Kansas City Chiefs (2000) and New Orleans Saints (1997-99).

In Green Bay, Clements’ extensive tutelage of Aaron Rodgers has paid dividends, as Rodgers became the first QB in league history to throw for at least 4,000 yards in each of his first two seasons as a starter, and he narrowly missed a third straight 4,000-yard season in 2010 with 3,933 yards despite missing 1½ games due to a concussion. In 47 career regular-season starts, Rodgers has topped the 100 mark in passer rating 25 times, thrown for 300 yards or three touchdowns 14 times each, and posted 10 games with three TDs and no interceptions, the most in NFL history by a quarterback within three seasons of his first start.

Rodgers became the first quarterback in franchise history to record a 100-plus passer rating in consecutive seasons, with a 101.2 passer rating in 2010. He had a career-best 65.7 completion percentage last season, finished third in the league in passer rating (101.2) and second in average gain (8.26), and added a trio of three-touchdown outings in the postseason, including one against Pittsburgh that earned him Super Bowl XLV MVP honors.

Clements has also tutored backup QB Matt Flynn, a seventh-round choice of the Packers in 2008. Flynn started his first career game in 2010, opening in place of an injured Rodgers at New England in Week 15, and became the first Green Bay QB to throw three TD passes in his first career start since Anthony Dilweg posted the same number vs. the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 9, 1990.

In 2009, Rodgers’ 4,434 passing yards fell just 25 yards short of topping Lynn **CENSORED**ey’s 1983 franchise record and ranked fourth in the league. He also ranked fourth in the NFL in TD passes (30) and passer rating (103.2), and first in interception percentage (1.29) in earning his first Pro Bowl bid. The passer rating sits second in franchise history to Bart Starr’s 105.0 mark in 1966.

Rodgers’ first 4,000-yard season in 2008 gave the Packers 4,000-yard passers in consecutive seasons for just the second time in team history, and for the first time in league history those back-to-back 4,000-yard passers were different QBs.

The previous two seasons, in addition to tutoring Rodgers as the backup and heir apparent, Clements oversaw a mini-renaissance of Brett Favre’s career. In 2006, Favre reduced his interceptions from a career-high 29 the year before to just 18, setting the stage for a near-MVP season in 2007, when he surpassed 4,000 yards passing for the fifth time. He also posted a then career-best completion percentage of 66.5 and a QB rating of 95.7 that was his third best at that point in leading the Packers back to the playoffs.

Before coming to Green Bay, Clements spent two seasons (2004-05) as offensive coordinator for the Buffalo Bills. In 2004, the Bills’ offense increased its scoring output by 152 and reduced its number of sacks allowed from 51 to 38, fewest by a Bills team since 1999. The unit was highlighted by RB Willis McGahee, who became the fifth running back in Bills history to register back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, covering each year of Clements’ tenure. In addition, QB Kelly Holcomb set a club record in 2005 with a 67.39 completion percentage, surpassing Jim Kelly’s 1991 mark, 64.14 percent.

Prior to joining the Bills, Clements served as Pittsburgh’s quarterbacks coach for three seasons (2001-03) under Bill Cowher. In 2002, he helped Tommy Maddox earn the Comeback Player of the Year award from The Associated Press, as Pittsburgh’s passing offense ranked seventh in the NFL, its highest finish since 1980 with Terry Bradshaw under center.

Clements also worked with Pittsburgh’s Kordell Stewart (2001) and Kansas City’s Elvis Grbac (2000) during each quarterback’s best season, both culminating in Pro Bowl berths. Mike Ditka gave Clements his first NFL coaching job, hiring him to coach the Saints’ quarterbacks (1997-99), a group that included Jake Delhomme and Kerry Collins.

Prior to his post with the Saints, Clements served under Lou Holtz as quarterbacks coach (1992-94) and wide receivers/assistant head coach (1995) at his alma mater, Notre Dame. While with the Fighting Irish, Clements coached eventual 1993 NFL Rookie of the Year QB Rick Mirer, and WR Derrick Mayes, the Packers’ second-round draft pick in 1996. In addition, he tutored QB Ron Powlus, Notre Dame’s career passing leader in attempts, completions, yardage and touchdowns at the time of his graduation.

Inducted into the Canadian Football League’s Hall of Fame in 1994, Clements played quarterback for Ottawa (1975-78), Saskatchewan/Hamilton (1979), Hamilton (1981-82) and Winnipeg (1983-87) during a 12-year career in the CFL. Selected seven times as a divisional All-Star, Clements guided two teams, Ottawa (1976) and Winnipeg (1984), to Grey Cup Championships, earning the Outstanding Offensive Player award in each game. The league’s Rookie of the Year in 1975 and Most Valuable Player in 1987, Clements completed 2,807 of 4,657 passes (60.3 percent) for 39,041 yards and 252 touchdowns during his CFL career.

Clements also spent one season, 1980, as a quarterback for Marv Levy’s Kansas City Chiefs.

A three-year starter at Notre Dame (1972-74) under Ara Parseghian, Clements led the Irish to a 29-5 record, including an unblemished national championship season in 1973. An All-American in 1974, he finished fourth in Heisman Trophy balloting when Archie Griffin earned the award. Clements received his degree in economics from Notre Dame in 1975.

A licensed attorney, Clements worked from 1988-92 for Bell, Boyd & Lloyd, a Chicago-based law firm. He pursued his law degree during his CFL playing career, graduating magna cum laude from Notre Dame’s School of Law in 1986. In 1994, while on the Notre Dame coaching staff, Clements was an Adjunct Associate Professor of Law at the university’s law school, where he taught “Sports and the Law.”

Clements was born in McKees Rocks, Pa. He and his wife, Kathe, live in Green Bay. The couple has two grown children: daughter, Stevie, and son, Tom.

I like the Packers OC Joe Philbin, Bengals DC Mike Zimmer, Russ Grimm, Mike Mularkey, and Mike Nolan. My wildcard is Steve Mariucci. Not really feeling Sherman.

Draft Aaron Donald
