Out of the box, as in outside of the traditional line of thinking when it comes to coordinators. The traditional hiring process is to take a hot name offensive or defensive coordinator coming off a good season and make him HC which often fails (i.e. Gus Bradley, Mike McCoy,etc...). Or in some cases a guy who has traditional football schemes because he’s a retread if some old system like Air Coryell, etc...
I want a candidate outside of that typical line of thinking. I don’t necessarily care about accolades. Pagano was the defensive coordinator of a talented Ravens defense that was good when he was still just a DB coach, with the idea probably being that he’s bring a tough defense to Indy. I don’t want to go down that road again. Hopefully that clears up any confusion
Ballard will take the best player available. He will study body of work on each player. How their motors run in the 4th quarter of close game. I’d advise everyone to watch full games of a guy they like before coming to a conclusion.
I didn't. I said probably. Because he's taller and looks just as athletic.
What is the love for Swoope on this forum? Last spring I called him a JAG who hasn't seen the field much and people behaved like he was a probowler.
Didn't mean commit sacrilege and dis the man Swoope when Doyle is the starter. Must be something else going on here.
