First off, let me just say that on a personal level I really do like you & hold no animosity toward you at all. We're just at opposite ends of Pagano spectrum that's all.
I get it Pagano is who with ride with for the 2017 season. That is true. On the 1 hand, even though I think your loyalty to Pagano is extremely misplaced, I do admire your resolve. I'm the same way when I dig in too. What's that quote from Hoffa directed by Danny Devito? "Everybody is telling me I'm wrong, but God darn it, I know I'm right!" Even when people are wrong, I revere tenacity & stubbornness on both sides of the aisle because sooner or later something's gotta give. Pressure busts pipes man & only 1 side emerges on top.
I never said Pagano wouldn't get another job CC1. What I said was were else is he going go & have such a talented offense as INDY? I also said the Browns or Jets might hire him for no more than 1 contract meaning 4-5 yrs.
My biggest issue with Pags is that defense was his calling card with the Ravens & in his first press conference he said let's hunt. Not much hunting going on even with our LBs. Yes, he deserves credit for getting to the AFC Championship Game vs the Pats. I won't take that accolade away from him. He earned that. A myriad of coaches would be successful with Luck. I'm not letting Pagano get away with that one.
Yeah, all we can do is let the season unfold. No argument there. I've been wrong before. I know that, but I also know that change can be good a la Jack Del Rio in Oakland. Yes, I know Derek Carr is awesome. My point is this: Jack had proven his defensive credentials in Denver & he brought a tougher defensive mentality to the Bay area as a player for the Vikings & former coach of the Jags. It's not always about athleticism in the draft room, but the mental fortitude to change the locker room culture.
