ballard only wants to man the roster with draft picks and cheap free agents, and undrafted talent. so far with his method we are falling behind the texans and titans. he needs to use the cap room and sign some proven elite talent or next season we will be worse.
I get that in reality just like he is over the offense too. Having said that Eberflus is the D coordinator. If the HC is going to get blamed for everything than what is the purpose of even having any other coaches on the sideline then? Why did Wade Phillips get all the credit for Denver's defense when they won the SB in 2015 and Kubiak got 0 credit for the D. Same for Buddy Ryan in 1985 with the Bears. It is Eberflus' defense unless Reich over rules him on a play call. I doubt Reich even makes any calls regarding the defense, he does on offense though as he has even said so.
