I would let him go. His scheme kind of sucks. We do generate pressure but that is more from the guys we have than the scheme imo. I think he is a little overrated. At least right now I do. If we go have an excellent playoffs on d then I will eat giant thing of crow. My prediction is the reason we don’t go far is our d scheme is too easy to play against.
NCAA Minny coach PJ Fleck getting some rumor that he might be looked at as an NFL head coach. That’s a very fast rise for Fleck. He does have some NFL coaching experience as he was our WR coach in 2012 and helped with rookie HC Schiano from college to the NFL. Fleck does have that experience as well as have resources to fall back upon with Schiano being available.
I dunno if Fleck will make the jump since he signed a 7-year contract with Minny in 2019. An NFL coaching spot is rare to have and probably a good reason to make that jump. If he falters, then he can always go back to coaching in the NCAA’s.
I would like to see what he can do with good corners. Get two good guys in FA and give him one more chance
Thats true. Our secondary was young and honestly wasn’t very good. Maybe with some competent corners we would be better.
I know pff isnt the end all be all, but i believe both davis & dean graded out as top 10-15 corners.
Dean was the 2nd highest rated 2nd year defensive player as recent as 2 or 3 weeks ago.
Well part of it was the scheme having them play so far off the wrs. Also they are young so they are going to make mistakes. However you are right they made some good plays this year too. Maybe they learn from their mistakes this year and are better but still hoping for some competition there. Always a good thing.
Rich McKay is constantly trying to find the next Tony Dungy. Bowles is a great D Coordinator. I’m just not sure he is head coaching material and that’s not a knock. It’s just what it is. But Rich loves taking guys away from his division and knows how creating worry on a defense before the playoffs can screw a tram. Remember Monte Kiffin.
I really despise the Falcons. I think they are doing this to mess with the Bucs more than anything else.
