I'd like them to hire a GM and let him do all the hiring. We need a culture change from top to bottom

I agree.  The Glazers may want a return to an older culture, though.  The McKay rumors came out so fast that there's probably some element of truth to them, even if it's only a backdoor inquiry that McKay rebuffed.The stability (stagnation?) of the McKay/Dungy years were lost with Gruden/Allen, who weren't long term plan oriented.  Dominik appeared to be a longer term planner, but his decisions often didn't work out, and he may have gotten the job too early in his career.  He also appears to have had to weather a major budget cutting era due to Manchester United problems.  And he was saddled with Morris, who was far too young for his job.  Schiano was a fall back during an off season with very little HC talent available and a rejection by a good coach (Kelly).I'd be happy with Lovie Smith and maybe even McKay, but I'd be more intrigued by someone who came in with completely fresh ideas.  Comfortable and trusting working relationships are key in either situation.  It sure makes for a much more interesting and unpredictable off season!

Please wait…
